in thread My favorite crew member from the original Star Trek:

I always thought of it as "space opera", the classic "good-vs-evil battles".
That's the way it looks now. In 1966 it was the first SF series that touched on (for example) computer records being hacked, or race hatred or the problems involved in First Contact situations.

A lot of this is overlooked now because of the less than stellar acting and cheap sets. But when it first ran, it was pure imagination.

    Yeah its funny how they brought it back down to reality, as modern society advanced. The first thought that pops into my "green mind" when I think of Star Trek now, is how eventually they learned "that warp drive was polluting sub-space" and to throttle back from warp 7. :-)

    Can you IMAGINE the uproar if it became known that migraines are caused by UFO's running their engines improperly. :-)

      I carry a Palm Pilot (in some ways more powerful than the PDP-10 I worked on in 1972), and a Razor Cellphone. A Tricorder and a Communicator.
      I live in my own future. Where's my phaser and flying car?

[Corion]: Mhhmmm - https://sod.pixlab .io/ looks really interesting for embedding with Perl (XS), but they don't have any kind of free model available and the cheapest pretrained model costs EUR 40 :-(
[Corion]: Maybe I should mail them to find out if they can provide me a "hotdog / no hotdog" model for developping the XS bindings. It would be nice to have a self-contained XS library for applying models to data. Or maybe I should look at TensorFlow, which can...
[Corion]: ... at least be trained by me, instead of relying on a vendor
