We’re here with another interview with a newer member of our community. The title of this column is “Lower Decks,” hearkening back to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode titled “Lower Decks,” in which junior officers aboard the Enterprise-D speculate on the reasons for recent unusual actions taken by the command crew near the Cardassian border.
This month’s interview is with the writer behind Ens. Christopher Lambert playing a human male science officer assigned to the USS Darwin
WOLF: Tell us a little about the writer behind the character — where in the world do you hail from?
Let me think where a middle-aged man, myself included I guess, would start from. I must confess that we have already a big problem because I do not think as confined by time and space. However, to give you a frame of reference to start with, let´s consider this exact moment. Right now, I’m in Brazil, sharing funny ideas about life, culture and science affairs with everyone who dares to listen and to read my poor English writing sims. Yeah, my first language is Portuguese.
I had formal formation on science, and currently, I work as a high school teacher and occasionally as College teacher. Generally speaking, my entire short life on this planet was directly connected with teaching and learning something. Recently, I meant the past ten years, I am maturing the idea that I could transpire, in writing, some of my unorthodox ideas, and here I am now, trying to do that in a funny way together with my companions from USS Darwin.
Well, to avoid being so vague about this writer, I´m not married, I do not have children, not any pet, and right now I do not have even a dwelling place that I could call home. I´m in a transition phase. But I was once married to a wonderful woman, I have a welcoming family and lots of nephews. Recently, I seemed to be chosen as a friend by a newborn white cat. Where this relationship will let us is already to be determined. Besides that, I use my weekends to entertain people about the secrets and potentials of human consciousness, and how to become more aware of oneself.
