Poll of the Week: Tribble Crossbreeding!

They’re after you! You duck and dodge through the cave system that is your lair, desperate to get to your lab. Once you’re there, you will be safe. But they’re catching up – those confounded Starfleet security people! Why did they care about what you did? Who were they to tell you that your scientific pursuits were illegal? And what did you care about a broken treaty or two? You are on the cusp of greatness!

At last, the neutronium-laced door seals behind you, and you can complete your experimentation intact. You pour the last vial of green, bubbling goop into the vat, wait for the concoction to boil, and then take a single animal of your choice, along with a purring tribble, and throw them in. What comes out is up to you…

This week’s question asks you which Terran animal you’d like to see crossed with a tribble!

Poll of the Week: Are We There Yet?

Starfleet captains face no shortage of challenges. At the end of the day, the fate of the ship and their crew are their responsibility. A commanding officer has to be good at juggling multiple responsibilities at once and managing the ship’s daily activities. Keeping a starship with a crew in the hundreds under control can be a daunting task. But which captain is best equipped to handle the challenges of planning a road trip?

Your answer might vary based on what kind of trip you would want to go on. If a quiet trip touring monuments, museums, and national parks is something that you would want to see, perhaps a road trip planned by James T. Kirk wouldn’t be your first choice. A road trip with each captain would also have its own unique challenges. Taking a road trip through the Delta Quadrant could take decades stopping at every tourist trap and road stop along the way.

Which captain would plan the best road trip?
