Except that planet couldn't have been entirely liquid - it had a beach!

Great interview. Over a Torrent Sea sounds really cool.

^^Some of it is background in a spec novel I've already written and that I'm waiting for a certain editor to get around to reading...
Well, I hope that the "certain editor" gets around to reading it and publishing it. What you describe in the interview is fascinating and I would enjoy reading something you wrote that was non-Trek.

Christopher can answer with more authority, but I believe he meant that the notion of a scientifically plausible ocean planet was only theorized about four years ago. I think we can all agree that those two words rarely have applied to either Star Wars, Lexx, or Voyager.
What are you talking about? Are you saying Lexx wasn't a documentary?

While a lot of Lexx's portrayals were accurate--its depiction of the presidency, for instance--it did take a few liberties with the truth here and there. The Earth was actually invaded by aubergines, not carrots, but the producers felt carrots, being pointier, were more threatening.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Bwah? The carrots went over well around these parts. And San Francisco. I'm not sure what the connection is though.
