Enterprise Bridge

Who the fuck said Amazon was allowed to close? Fuckers. I need to look up a goddamned song and they're closed.

It's still funny that Gates McFadden played Cathy Ryan in "The Hunt For Red October" (for all of ten seconds.) Dr. Crusher as Dr. Ryan. They did a bitchin' little bit of updating when they cut the book down to fit the movie, too. Originally, the caterpillar drive on Red October was a pair of propellers shrouded in inboard tunnels. That was changed to a magnetohydrodynamic drive for the film. At the time, I had remembered seeing something about that in an issue of Time or something.
