I’ve been a fan of Star Trek ever since my husband introduced me to “The Next Generation” back when we were in college.
Lately we’ve been watching “Deep Space Nine”, and I try very hard to pay attention to all the science and technology on the show, since I do not have a scientific background (or foreground either, for that matter).
I try to impress my engineer husband with my keen attention to scientific detail, but unfortunately it doesn’t always work.
“Ooh, it’s really dark on that planet,” I observed, proud of my astute observational powers.
“Mmm, yes,” replied my husband. “That’s called ‘night’.”
