Re: Would you really leave in a Starship?
Sure, I'd go. I have no close friends or family, as all my friends were from work, and I've not worked in over ten years. Might have to take a pet along though. And I assume Starfleet would cover medical expenses, as I need my eyes and teeth fixed. But not sure what sort of shipboard job I'd be qualified to do. Resident grouch, I suppose. When I was about 4, there was some mean old man on our block who used to holler at us kids when we walked on the sidewalk in front of his house. Now, 58 years later, I seem to be turning into that guy.
