Caption This: Peeking In On … Are They Up To The 25th Century Yet?

Dr Crusher with her face shoved up against kind of giant microscope type device.

[ Picard, off-screen: ] Captain’s log, supplemental. We have entered our third day without success getting the superglue off Dr Crusher’s medical scanner.

(Wrong caption? Go ahead, use this space to offer a better one.)


Meanwhile over on my mathematics blog, I’ve had another chance to talk about comic strips. Mostly Popeye. Also I’ve got through the first week of the Leap Day 2016 Mathematics A To Z project, a glossary of mathematics terms written in a way I hope makes sense to non-mathematicians. Please, consider enjoying.

Scene from “Twisted”, that Star Trek: Voyager with the space-time anomaly. The one inside the ship. In the second season. In the early part of the second season. Where they keep finding themselves on the holodeck. One of them, anyway.
