Subj: ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment (S903)
One of the latest missions from the ISS is kind of amazing.
The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment consists
of four cameras that have been attached outside of the ISS.
Though temperature is controlled, the cameras are exposed to
the radiation from the sun, which will allow astronauts to
understand how radiation affects the instruments.
point down at Earth at all times, which makes
for some breathtaking images. The feed will sometimes go
down as the signal switches between the cameras, and it is
hard to see when the ISS is on the dark side of the planet.
If the cameras are down, the screen will be grey.

Subj: Star Trek Lost Episodes Transcript.
"Mr. LaForge, have you had any success with your attempts
at finding a weakness in the Borg? And Mr. Data, have you
been able to access their command pathways?"
"Yes, Captain. In fact, we found the answer by searching
through our archives on late Twentieth-century computing
[Geordi presses a key, and a logo appears on the computer screen.]
[Riker looks puzzled.]
"What the hell is 'Microsoft'?"
[Data turns to answer.]
"Allow me to explain. We will send this program, for some
reason called 'Windows', through the Borg command pathways.
Once inside their root command unit, it will begin consuming
system resources at an unstoppable rate."
"But the Borg have the ability to adapt. Won't they alter
their processing systems to increase their storage capacity?"
"Yes, Captain. But when 'Windows' detects this, it creates
a new version of itself known as an 'upgrade'. The use of
resources increases exponentially with each iteration. The
Borg will not be able to adapt quickly enough. Eventually
all of their processing ability will be taken over and none
will be available for their normal operational functions."
"Excellent work. This is even better than that 'unsolvable
geometric shape' idea." .. . . 15 Minutes Later . . .
"Captain, We have successfully installed the 'Windows' in
the command unit and, as expected, it immediately consumed
85% of all resources. We however have not received any
confirmation of the expected 'upgrade'."
"Our scanners have picked up an increase in Borg storage
and CPU capacity to compensate, but we still have no
indication of an 'upgrade' to compensate for their increase."
"Data, scan the history banks again and determine if there
is something we have missed."
"Sir, I believe there is a reason for the failure in the
'upgrade'. Apparently the Borg have circumvented that part
of the plan by not sending in their registration cards.
"Captain, we have no choice. Requesting permission to begin
emergency escape sequence 3F . . ."
"Wait, Captain I just detected their CPU capacity has suddenly
dropped to 0% !"
"Data, what do your scanners show?"
"Apparently the Borg have found the internal 'Windows' module
named 'Solitaire' and it has used up all the CPU capacity."
"Let's wait and see how long this 'solitaire' can reduce
their functionality." .. . . Two Hours Pass . . .
"Geordi, what's the status on the Borg?"
"As expected the Borg are attempting to re-engineer to
compensate for increased CPU and storage demands, but each
time they successfully increase resources I have setup our
closest deep space monitor beacon to transmit more 'windows'
modules from something called the 'Microsoft fun-pack'.
"How much time will that buy us ?"
"Current Borg solution rates allow me to predicate an
interest time span of 6 more hours."
"Captain, another vessel has entered our sector."
"It appears to have markings very similar to the 'Microsoft'
logo" [Over the speakers]
"THIS IS ADMIRAL BILL GATES OF THE MICROSOFT FLAGSHIP MONOPOLY.
WE HAVE POSITIVE CONFIRMATION OF UNREGISTERED SOFTWARE IN THIS
SECTOR. SURRENDER ALL ASSETS AND WE CAN AVOID ANY TROUBLE.
YOU HAVE ten SECONDS"
"The alien ship has just opened its forward hatches and
released thousands of humanoid shaped objects."
"Magnify forward viewer on the alien craft"
"Good God captain! Those are humans floating straight toward
the Borg ship with no life support suits! How can they
survive the tortures of deep space ?!"
"I don't believe that those are humans sir, if you will look
closer I believe you will see that they are carrying something
recognized by twenty-first century man as doe-skin leather
briefcases, and wearing Armani suits"
[Riker and Picard together horrified]
"It can't be. All the Lawyers were rounded up and sent
hurtling into the sun in 2017 during the Great Awakening."
"True, but apparently some must have survived."
"They have surrounded the Borg ship and are covering it
with all types of papers."
"I believe that is known in ancient vernacular as 'red
tape'. It often proves fatal."
"They're tearing the Borg to pieces !"
"Turn off the monitors. I can't stand to watch, not even
the Borg deserve that."

Subj: Anthropology 472: Anthology of Star Trek
An article in the Thursday, February
7 Free Lance-Star
(Fredericksburg, VA) by Michael Zitz was about an under-
graduate anthropology course examining episodes of Star
Trek (TOS) for their anthropological relevance. The
instructor, Professor Margaret Huber, had noticed that
students who seemed bored and listless during a review
session for physical anthropology perked up when she
referred to an old Star Trek episode to make a point.
The course Anthropology 472:
Anthology of Star Trek
analyzes Star Trek as a mirror of contemporary American
culture and American attitudes about other cultures.
There is no dramatic criticism, film criticism, or
literary criticism involved, the focus is to teach the
class to look at the episodes with an anthropologist's
eye. The 22 episodes chosen for this class all demon-
strate how American popular culture has led to a mixture
of fact and fiction. One example used is "The Paradise
Syndrome", in which Captain Kirk is stranded on an Earth-
like planet that has produced a civilization similar
to that of Native Americans before the intrusion of the
The anthropological point of
this episode is that American
popular culture portrays all Native Americans as Plains
Indians, and that has resulted in a mish-mash of dwellings,
dress, rites, and symbols in the Star Trek episode.
The instructor cautions that
this is not a course for those
students looking for an easy A but a real anthropology
course that uses material that many of today's college
students are already familiar with to examine anthropological
