That URL is very suspect. Sorry, not clicking.

It's safe. I checked it with a virtualbox I keep for just such a situation. It's just a tiny url leading to the blog in his signature.

Here's the full url to the article:

http://startrekblog.wordpress.com/20...he-real-world/

on the article itself, yeah, pretty standard observations that have been made plenty of times.

I always considered teleporting to be killing a person and then re-assembling them somewhere else, which is why I wouldn't use it if I had the choice.

Also, I think this thread should be in Trek Tech instead of the General board.
