Listen to this episode Captain Raymond has been conversing with me about the bible and those conversations culminated with us rendezvousing at Granite 2 (a church) for a conference about end-times prophecy.

Listen to this episode We continue to find ourselves in an unstable region of space. Unfortunately, it seems as though things will get worse before they improve.

Listen to this episode The ship is in a slightly more stable region of space than it was last week. Our chief engineer (the mechanic) identified the issue with the warp core (the car engine) and it seems the ship will need a new EPS manifold (starter).

Listen to this episode Our vessel has been navigating through a turbulent region of space the last couple of weeks. The ship’s computers took substantial damage after we flew too close to a gravitational eddy. (Inexplicably, my laptop’s screen got cracked and my 2 son’s computers stopped working). I’ve had to allocate considerable resources (hundredsContinue reading “Captain’s Blog: Stardate 09272021.2”

Captain’s Blog: Stardate 09062021.4

Listen to this episode As our ship flies out to its next mission, I find myself staring out the window gazing into infinity. Though time and space may go on forever, as far as I know being over 40 years old means my existence is just about halfway over. During my existence, one of myContinue reading “Captain’s Blog: Stardate 09062021.4”

Listen to this episode As Starfleet officers, my crew and I always look forward seeking out new life and new civilizations. Lately, we have found ourselves exploring Bajoran space. Starbase 460 (Seventh day Adventist church) had an uncomfortably large amount of people crammed into the space station considering the galactic plague. I’m not fond ofContinue reading “Captain’s Blog, Stardate 09022021.3”

Listen to this episode Our ability to undertake missions has been adversely affected by the dense ionized nebula our ship finds itself in. (Wildfire smoke has drastically reduced the air quality) Additionally, it has been difficult to conduct away missions when the interstellar radiation (the temperature) reaches above 90 millirems (degrees Fahrenheit). Still, with someContinue reading “Captain’s Blog, Stardate 08272021.4”

Off The Record

An extemporaneous log of my thoughts and feelings Within most of us is the desire to become godlike. To be free of pain and suffering and to have ultimate control. Heck, I probably think about it more than most people. Some of us think about asserting our will over society; perhaps destroying countless millions andContinue reading “Off The Record”
