    Sorry, I was unclear there. I had my wording all fucked up.

    There are two parts to the ‘nobody’ thing. The first is the word nobody and then the second is the silence after it. It’s to denote that no one anywhere had ever thought or heard a particular thing. Then another group comes in as part of the meme and asks that particular question. To turn the meme into a sentence it would be:

    “Not a single living soul in creation had ever expressed this idea but suddenly, one day, a group of Star Trek fans asked something fucked up for the very first time.”

    Whether it’s fucked up or interesting or whatever is denoted by the general context or feeling that the question/idea gives. In this case it would be fucked up.

    I was watching some Critical Role recaps and was in the middle of a deeply intense emotional moment. I had to turn away because I was welling up a bit and looked to the second monitor. A single lemmy message. I refresh. It’s this.

    I cannot stop laughing at both the absurdity of the moment and the intense hilarity of that comment.

    Bravo. Bra-fucking-vo.
































  • Warp core can have shielding around it but typically doesn’t. There have been threats in the past from people firing at the warp core. A containment field can be raised (and iirc there was one raised in this scene) but it’s not always on. Would no need to be in an area as critical as main engineering. Only people with access to the area are people who wouldn’t typically fuck with it. Having a continuous forcefield would be a drain on ship energy systems and might even impact crew morale to an extent.
