Mind you, at non-warp speed, the journey itself will take well over 100,000 years. Maybe we should just wait to see if they call back?
I love how on Star Trek, engineers are masters of EVERY scientific discipline, rather than being experts in specific fields.
“Yeah, I’ve spent my whole life studying warp mechanics, but let me just pop the skull off this android or investigate this strange quantum fluctuation space anomaly we’ve just encountered. Yes, I am *totally* qualified to do that!“
Apologies to AIST, the inventors of the HRP-4C Humanoid Robot, for the liberties we’ve taken with their creation.
We know you only had the purest of motivations at heart when building this abomination.
By the way, special thanks to Corridor Digital for creating the CGI “Bosstown Dynamics” robot that I used for source images on this strip.
