    it's a Voyager uniform, and her quote was "There's coffee in that nebula.... I mean #Dragon"
    in reference to the espresso machine being delivered to the ISS by the Dragon capsul.

    The Dragon capsule is a fantastic machine. The piloted version will be able to carry 7 astronauts, and be controlled by the pilot! :)

    this is the direction NASA should have been going for instead of wasting all that time and money on SSTO technology that is just technical out of reach at this point. SSTO will happen, but we still need another technological break-thru to make it work.

    I stand corrected :) I confess I didn't watch Voyager as much as TNG & TOS (plus movies :))

    Voyager, overall, was the most enjoyable Star Trek series. Deep Space 9 was good too, but Voyager had more depth and continuity that all the others lacked. The Next Generation was a mess. IMHO. :)

    I would agree from a story-line perspective, I just found Neelix really annoying (just like Jar-Jar in Star Wars) & DS9 never really grabbed me :(

    Neelix's girlfriend, the "Okampa", annoyed the Hell out of me. I would have shoved them both in an airlock, and ejected them in space, just to see what happens to idiots in a vacuum!! :)

    I really hated Mr. Magoo. I didn't get it, and it really was making fun of blind people. Some of the cartoons from back then really show the ignorance of society as a whole, but on the other hand, there's Bugs Bunny! :)
