This is a bit old, but for those who were not aware, Captain Kirk is being kept apprised of the Enterprise's condition while it is in spacedock for refurbishing.

Crossover I want to see:
The twelfth Doctor bickering with Artie after materializing the TARDIS inside Warehouse 13.

Problems with drastically changing my hair for the first time in almost a decade:
• My profile picture no longer looks enough like me.
• My Mii no longer looks enough like me.
• I do not remember what I look like.

Related realization: the last time I had short hair was before I had online avatars.

Thank you to everyone who attended our last mission.  We will not have a mission this coming Monday because most of STAR will not be at RIT over spring break, but if you want a bit of sci-fi over break, we recommend watching “The Outcast”—season 5, episode 17 of _Star Trek: The Next Generation
, available on Netflix and other streaming services—in preparation for our next mission: Gender In Sci-Fi on Monday, March 30th at 19:00 in SAU 1829.

Next, a reminder that STARfest will be on Saturday, April 25th in the Campus Center/SAU.  If you are interested in running a panel at STARfest, please submit it online as soon as possible at goo.gl/boZZF8.  More information about the event is available on the event page at plus.google.com/events/cp1mn6n85khas5labgmuph4tst4.  In addition, you can help fund additional stretch goals for the event at gofundme.com/STARfest.

Finally, members of the STAR book club are to finish Timeline over spring break.

Have a wonderful and relaxing spring break, and we look forward to seeing you when we return on Monday, the 30th.

This mission we will discuss how sci-fi has been used to represent people of different genders and how it can address real world gender issues.

To prepare for this mission over spring break, we recommend watching Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “The Outcast” (season 5, episode 17), which is available on Netflix and other streaming services.  We also recommend The Left Hand Of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin.
Week 09 - Gender In Science Fiction
Tomorrow, March 30, 7:00 PM

#TetrEscape is actually feeling like a real game now.  The menu system is far from complete, and the graphics need to be redone, but I have eleven levels (and counting) and playtesting is indicating my work on improving the animations and smoothing the difficulty curve is paying off!

I just completed my first playthrough of 999.  It was pretty good, though the ending I got (the knife ending) was rather abrupt and anticlimactic (though I totally called that [spoiler] was the one [spoiler]ing).  Hopefully the next ending I get is more interesting.

Shout-out to +Maya Nagan and +Mario Chuman for getting me to play it.

This group made a Harry Potter-themed parody of “Uptown Funk” called “Dark Lord Funk”, and it is fantastic as you might imagine.

Introduction

I am a 20-year-old game and software designer and developer.

I enjoy programming, level design, and user interface/user experience design, and I would like to think I am quite good at those things—I have been teaching game and software design and development since high school.  I also enjoy drawing, 3D modeling, 2D and 3D animation, acting, and singing.  I am not as good at those things, but I hope to get better in time.  I also enjoy promoting wave, spinning poi, cosplaying, geeking out over sci-fi, and writing lyrics (usually parodies of existing songs) from time to time.  And normal things, such as playing video games and reading.

If you are interested in some of the things I make, you can check out my apps, wave gadgets (for Google Wave, Shared SpacesApache Wave, and similar systems), Portal maps, and other tech shenanigans.

Bragging rights
I am a sysadmin, I can write a web app on a bus ride, and I spin fire poi.

I think they changed the recipe for the crust, and I do not think the new one is as good. The creative pizza types, however, are as great as ever.

One of the best, if not the best, Japanese restaurants in the area. They have a comprehensive selection of Japanese food and drinks and good service. The food is kind of expensive, but often worth it.
