Re: Requiem for Methuselah (Spoilers)
I like the Gilgamesh/immortal man elements. Flint's moment of recollection of the black plague were particularly effective. I liked seeing someone using a robot, which we should have seen a lot more of in Trek but didn't. Unfortunately, Trek again bypasses the question of effective sentient, thinking AI by causing Rayna to go crazy at the thought of...love.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
