Hopefully not in a Michael Crichton novel kind of way, or we're all doomed to die of the wooly mammoth pox.

So could T'Pol eat meat grown in a test-tube?

I guess that would depend on how particular her conscience was. After all, those myocytes had to come from somewhere. Those poor itty bitty little veal fetuses... ;-)

Supposedly from the shoulder tissue of beef. So if you thought they were enslaving cattle in order to harvest cells, I suppose you could still feel squeamish about it.

So in theory we have the potential for lots and lots of aliens, even if they're all too far apart to ever meet each other.

Though it’s been delayed along the way, Riddick finally opens Sept. 6. Will you be watching?


Judging by this, it's supposed to be out now. The fact I've never heard of it must be a testament to my advert-dodging abilities.

Huh - so maybe Firefly's solar system with all those inhabited planets wasn't so stupid after all.

Earlier today, I was reading a story in which T'Pol was obsessed with Trip's blue eyes. Then I happened across this new article about the physics of why blue eyes are blue (hint: there isn't any blue pigment). If you'd like to take a look: https://www.sciencealert.com/science-ho ... eir-colour.
