 Subj:     ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment (S903)

 Source: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/iss-hdev-payload
.
.
.
 One of the latest missions from the ISS is kind of amazing.
 The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment consists
 of four cameras that have been attached outside of the ISS.
 Though temperature is controlled, the cameras are exposed to
 the radiation from the sun, which will allow astronauts to
 understand how radiation affects the instruments.

 The cameras point down at Earth at all times, which makes
 for some breathtaking images.  The feed will sometimes go
 down as the signal switches between the cameras, and it is
 hard to see when the ISS is on the dark side of the planet.
 If the cameras are down, the screen will be grey.

Subj:     Pres. Bush Explains Star Trek (S323b)
          From: RFSlick on 4/6/2003

 The Iraqi Ambassador to the UN has just finished giving
 a speech, and walks out into the lobby where he meets
 President George W. Bush.  They shake hands and, after
 a brief chat about world affairs, the Iraqi says, "I
 have a question that I think perhaps you can answer."

 President Bush says, "Well, I'm not the sharpest knife
 in the drawer, but I'll do my best."

 The Iraqi ambassador continues, "My son watches this
 show called Star Trek and in it there is Kirk who is
 Canadian, Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish,
 Uhura who is black, and Sulu who is Japanese, but there
 are NO Muslims. He is very upset.

 He doesn't understand why there are never any Arabs in
 Star Trek."

 President Bush laughs, leans toward the Iraqi, and
 whispers, "It's because it takes place in the future...."

Subj:     What if Mr. Data were Microsoft Windows Compatible?
          From: smiles on 98-10-17

WORF:  Captain, there are three Romulan warships uncloaking
       dead ahead.

PICARD:  On screen.

   [The main viewing screen changes to a pattern of horizontal
   lines, each only a single pixel wide.]

PICARD:  Data, what's wrong here?

DATA: Captain, the main viewscreen does not have sufficient
      video memory to display an image of this size.  May I
      suggest that you select a lower resolution?

PICARD:  Make it so.

   [The screen blanks, and then an image appears, with big,
   blocky square pixels.  Three objects appear in the center,
   which could be Romulan warbirds, but which actually look
   more like the aliens in Space Invaders.]

PICARD:  Data, open a hailing channel to the Romulans.

DATA:  Aye, sir.

   [Data picks up an hourglass from the floor beside him,
   turns it over, and places it on the console in front of
   him.  He punches some buttons on the console and sits
   motionless for several seconds.  A flash of  light
   blossoms from one of the Romulan ships on the viewscreen.]

WORF:  Incoming plasma torpedo, Captain!

PICARD:  Shields up!

DATA:  I'm sorry, Captain, but I am still attempting to
       complete your last instruction.  I must ask you to
       wait until I have finished before you issue your next
       command.

PICARD: What on earth do you mean?  Data, this is *important*!
        I want those shields up *right now*.

DATA:  I'm sorry, Captain, but I am still attempting to
       complete your last instruction.  I must ask you to wait
       until I have finished before you issue your next command.

LAFORGE:  Allow me, captain.  [to Data] Control-alt-delete, Data.

   [Data removes the hourglass from the console,
   and returns it to the floor.]

DATA:  The Romulans are not responding to my hails. Press my
       nose to cancel and return to Windows.  Pull my left
       ear to close this communications channel which is not
       responding.  You will lose any information sent by the
       Romulans.

   [LaForge pulls Data's left ear.]

PICARD:  Shields...

   [There is a tremendous explosion.  The bridge shakes
   violently, and all  the crew members are thrown to the
   floor.  A shower of sparks erupts from Wesley Crusher's
   station at the helm, throwing Wesley back away from the
   console.]

PICARD:  Up, Data!

DATA:  Aye, sir.

RIKER:  All decks, damage report!

WORF:  Captain, Ensign Crusher is injured.  He appears to
       be unconscious.

   [Data picks up the hourglass again, places it on his
   console, and punches some more buttons.  He waits a few
   seconds, then puts the hourglass back on the floor.]

DATA:  Shields are now up, captain.

PICARD:  And not a moment too soon.  Worf, lock all phasers
         on the lead Romulan ship.

WORF:  Aye, sir.

   [He punches buttons on the weapons console.]

PICARD:  Mr. Data, take the helm, and prepare for evasive action.

DATA:  I am sorry, sir, but I do not have the proper device
       driver installed for that console.

PICARD:  Well, damn it, install the right one.

DATA:  Please insert Setup Implant #1 in my right nostril.

PICARD:  Number One, where do we keep Data's setup implants?

RIKER:  I left them with Geordi.

LAFORGE:  [in a surprised voice] What!!?  I thought you
           still had them!

PICARD:  Data, don't you have device drivers stored in your
         internal memory?

DATA:  Not found, sir.  Please insert Setup Implant #1 in
       my right nostril.

PICARD:  Data, I don't *have* Setup Implant #1.

DATA:  Not ready reading right nostril.  Abort, Retry, Fail?

PICARD:  Abort!

DATA:  Not ready reading right nostril.  Abort, Retry, Fail?

PICARD:  Well, fail, then!

DATA:  Current nose is no longer valid.

   [Data walks over to the helm, and presses several buttons.
   The ship lurches, the images of the Romulan warships
   suddenly shift to one side of the viewscreen, and a high-
   pitched whining noise is heard coming from somewhere else
   in the ship.]

LAFORGE:  [alarmed]  Data, what the hell are you doing?

PICARD:  Number One, do we have a customer service number
         for Data?

RIKER:  Yes sir, but last time I tried to call them, I got
        put on hold for two hours before I was able to talk
        to anyone.  And that person wasn't knowledgeable
        about androids of Data's model.  She specialized in
        industrial control robots.

   [Suddenly, the lights all go out, the viewscreen goes
   blank, and all the usual noise of fans, motors, and so
   on whines to a halt.  After a few seconds, the red
   emergency lights come on.  Data is standing by the
   console, absolutely motionless.]

PICARD:  What's going on?

LAFORGE:  [checking the helm console]  Lieutenant Data has
          caused a General Protection Violation in the warp
          engine core.

PICARD: These androids look really sharp, but you can't
       really do anything with them.

   [The shimmer of the transporter effect appears, and six
   Romulans in full battle dress materialize on the bridge.
   A seventh figure, a Ferengi, appears moments later.]

FERENGI:  [with a mercenary grin] Can I interest you in a
          Macintosh, Captain?

Subj:     Star Trek Lost Episodes Transcript.

[Picard]
   "Mr. LaForge, have you had any success with your attempts
   at finding a weakness in the Borg? And Mr. Data, have you
   been able to access their command pathways?"

[Geordi]
   "Yes, Captain.  In fact, we found the answer by searching
   through our archives on late Twentieth-century computing
   technology."

[Geordi presses a key, and a logo appears on the computer screen.]

[Riker looks puzzled.]
   "What the hell is 'Microsoft'?"

[Data turns to answer.]
   "Allow me to explain.  We will send this program, for some
   reason called 'Windows', through the Borg command pathways.
   Once inside their root command unit, it will begin consuming
   system resources at an unstoppable rate."

[Picard]
   "But the Borg have the ability to adapt.  Won't they alter
   their processing systems to increase their storage capacity?"

[Data]
   "Yes, Captain. But when 'Windows' detects this, it creates
   a new version of itself known as an 'upgrade'.  The use of
   resources increases exponentially with each iteration.  The
   Borg will not be able to adapt quickly enough.  Eventually
   all of their processing ability will be taken over and none
   will be available for their normal operational functions."

[Picard]
   "Excellent work.  This is even better than that 'unsolvable
   geometric shape' idea." .. . . 15 Minutes Later . . .

[Data]
   "Captain, We have successfully installed the 'Windows' in
   the command unit and, as expected, it immediately consumed
   85% of all resources.  We however have not received any
   confirmation of the expected 'upgrade'."

[Geordi]
   "Our scanners have picked up an increase in Borg storage
   and CPU capacity to compensate, but we still have no
   indication of an 'upgrade' to compensate for their increase."

[Picard]
   "Data, scan the history banks again and determine if there
   is something we have missed."

[Data]
   "Sir, I believe there is a reason for the failure in the
   'upgrade'.  Apparently the Borg have circumvented that part
   of the plan by not sending in their registration cards.

[Riker]
   "Captain, we have no choice. Requesting permission to begin
   emergency escape sequence 3F . . ."

[Geordi, excited]
   "Wait, Captain I just detected their CPU capacity has suddenly
   dropped to 0% !"

[Picard]
   "Data, what do your scanners show?"

[Data]
   "Apparently the Borg have found the internal 'Windows' module
   named 'Solitaire' and it has used up all the CPU capacity."

[Picard]
   "Let's wait and see how long this 'solitaire' can reduce
   their functionality." .. . . Two Hours Pass . . .

[Riker]
   "Geordi, what's the status on the Borg?"

[Geordi]
   "As expected the Borg are attempting to re-engineer to
   compensate for increased CPU and storage demands, but each
   time they successfully increase resources I have setup our
   closest deep space monitor beacon to transmit more 'windows'
   modules from something called the 'Microsoft fun-pack'.

[Picard]
   "How much time will that buy us ?"

[Data]
   "Current Borg solution rates allow me to predicate an
   interest time span of 6 more hours."

[Geordi]
   "Captain, another vessel has entered our sector."

[Picard]
   "Identify."

[Data]
   "It appears to have markings very similar to the 'Microsoft'
   logo" [Over the speakers]
    "THIS IS ADMIRAL BILL GATES OF THE MICROSOFT FLAGSHIP MONOPOLY.
    WE HAVE POSITIVE CONFIRMATION OF UNREGISTERED SOFTWARE IN THIS
    SECTOR.  SURRENDER ALL ASSETS AND WE CAN AVOID ANY TROUBLE.
    YOU HAVE ten SECONDS"

[Data]
   "The alien ship has just opened its forward hatches and
   released thousands of humanoid shaped objects."

[Picard]
   "Magnify forward viewer on the alien craft"

[Riker]
   "Good God captain! Those are humans floating straight toward
   the Borg ship with no life support suits!  How can they
   survive the tortures of deep space ?!"

[Data]
   "I don't believe that those are humans sir, if you will look
   closer I believe you will see that they are carrying something
   recognized by twenty-first century man as doe-skin leather
   briefcases, and wearing Armani suits"

[Riker and Picard together horrified]
   "Lawyers !!"

[Geordi]
   "It can't be.  All the Lawyers were rounded up and sent
   hurtling into the sun in 2017 during the Great Awakening."

[Data]
   "True, but apparently some must have survived."

[Riker]
   "They have surrounded the Borg ship and are covering it
   with all types of papers."

[Data]
   "I believe that is known in ancient vernacular as 'red
   tape'.  It often proves fatal."

[Riker]
   "They're tearing the Borg to pieces !"

[Picard]
   "Turn off the monitors. I can't stand to watch, not even
   the Borg deserve that."

Subj:     Anthropology 472: Anthology of Star Trek

 An article in the Thursday, February 7 Free Lance-Star
 (Fredericksburg, VA) by Michael Zitz was about an under-
 graduate anthropology course examining episodes of Star
 Trek (TOS) for their anthropological relevance.  The
 instructor, Professor Margaret Huber, had noticed that
 students who seemed bored and listless during a review
 session for physical anthropology perked up when she
 referred to an old Star Trek episode to make a point.

 The course Anthropology 472: Anthology of Star Trek
 analyzes Star Trek as a mirror of contemporary American
 culture and American attitudes about other cultures.
 There is no dramatic criticism, film criticism, or
 literary criticism involved, the focus is to teach the
 class to look at the episodes with an anthropologist's
 eye.  The 22 episodes chosen for this class all demon-
 strate how American popular culture has led to a mixture
 of fact and fiction.  One example used is "The Paradise
 Syndrome", in which Captain Kirk is stranded on an Earth-
 like planet that has produced a civilization similar
 to that of Native Americans before the intrusion of the
 white man.

 The anthropological point of this episode is that American
 popular culture portrays all Native Americans as Plains
 Indians, and that has resulted in a mish-mash of dwellings,
 dress, rites, and symbols in the Star Trek episode.

 The instructor cautions that this is not a course for those
 students looking for an easy A but a real anthropology
 course that uses material that many of today's college
 students are already familiar with to examine anthropological
 theory.
