Thanks to. Spock's brillaint. Time traveling device. I have been able to. Travel back in time. To visit a more primitive age of my people. On Earth.

I have, ventured into. A public forum. Available on a primate version of. Our advanced systems. I see, lots of bickering. These people are so, confused. They fight amongst themselves. Over petty disagreements, and. Can't seem to grasp onto their. Own identities. I'm not really sure what, to make of it. This must be. An alternate timeline that my people. The people of Earth. Did not descend from.

I must try. To find out more, about these people. Where do? their descendants end up. How do, they survive, all the polarizations. I only have more questions? I need Spock to, give me more time, in this. device. In this timeline.

Captain out.

In the midst of the drudgery of cleaning up around here, I try to not lose sight of what this project is, and why I am part of it.

I hope most of all for the human species to discover an extraterrestrial intelligence because finally it will put our petty differences into perspective. The most disparate two humans on earth could not help but be staggeringly more similar than anything else in the cosmos (an amount difficult to quantify), and the furthest humans would be millions of times closer together than we would be to them in terms of distance. We would finally be just one human family in one tiny shared home and no more. I think it would have more profound of a philosophical and existential effect on us that anything else we have done up to this point, even including the development of nuclear weapons.

So I stay hopeful that the discovery will be made in my lifetime.

Logically, there's no reason to be so difficult to get along with other people who you do not know.

Are you sure that you did not return to an alternate timeline? :-)

Actually, it will be quite possible for these primitives to evolve into your advanced society, but if and only if, they invent the one device that makes it possible: "The replicator".

New entry for Captain's log.

So far. I have been, able, to come back. Once more. I have observed postings, on this strange medium. Disappear. Right before my. very. eyes. I have been, having Bones catalog as much as, he can. I need to know, if this strange version of events, has anything to do with. My ancestors. A major natural event has, just occurred. I see infighting and, human rights violations. Along with hypocrisy. A known hateful group has been, protected. Thus preserving their. Ideology. Instead of working. To eradicate, such hatefulness.

I must. see more. I must, know. more. Spock tells me we need. more. dilithium crystals to power, this device. I don't know if I can return? But rest assured, we will study the data, we have captured. for future examination.

Awww... just when it was getting good (wince... retch...). It is a quite decent impersonation of W. Shatner's BAD acting... Bad to the point of disgust. Which way to the vomitorium? (There is a REASON Kirk's middle name is Tiberius.)

Don't blame me, I voted for Johnson(L) in 2016.
