Some of my stuff and some stuff i enjoy. Hope you like it!


The anti-drone argument that “Star Trek” goes for most is not one having to do with due process or civilian or collateral casualties (a random Klingon patrol is wiped out as a result of their landing) but an essentially emotional one: they feel strange. It doesn’t seem right, or like a fair, forthright fight. They are uncanny—that, in the movie, bodies turn out to be cryogenically frozen in the torpedoes just underscores this aspect. One doesn’t want to dismiss this complaint; but it is inadequate. Is our discomfort telling us that we should inquire more about drones, or are we just Luddites who need to get used to the technology?
