I could seriously just write fake technobabble all day. It’s very freeing, like jazz scat improvisation or a geeky, secular version of glossolalia. Skediddly doo warp tube, dee dip dop biddle deflector baskwee dang, praise Jesus. But, yes, this is an important thing to keep in mind: even in the 24th century, you gotta be […]

Poor Reg is a little out of his banter-y depth here. Which is basically just me dredging up memories of being a freshman in high-school hanging out with upperclassmen, if I’m honest. Just barely keeping your head above water, conversationally, while trying to process the difference between a joke and a proposition, etc. YEAH CONFUSED […]
