Wireless Goes Warp Factor II

Unstrung was transported back to his youth today (Stardate 1972) when news of some Star Trek games development landed in his intray (see Starship Enterprise Apps). William Shatner in a corset, Leonard Nimoy's pointy lugs, the mindless deaths of hundreds of extras, and Lt. Uhuru falling on her bum -- how sweet the memories. But times have changed. The characters are different, the plotlines updated and even more meaningless. And the Vulcan Mind Meld is now better known as a mixture of Bacardi and ouzo. Bones would certainly not have approved. ("Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor, not a bartender!") One question lingers, however. When these games finally allow their players to boldly go where no games player has gone before, will their devices -- whether they be phones, PDAs, or phasers -- need to be powered by dilithium crystals to work properly? Why, that would surely be logical, Captain. — Ray Le Maistre, European Editor, Unstrung
