My laptop went down yesterday so I'm just getting my work laptop up to speed with links and sites I normally visit....
I'll have to watch that Star Trek episode later. Sounds intriguing!
Governors residence would be an interesting addition. It should be some sort of tower that's as high as a skyscraper so the governor has a grand view of the colony. The idea of that being the vantage point allows him to see and do new stuff could be a good concept to build upon.
I did see the video. Didn't have time to really read the article though. I should go read up on that now!
