Stolen Droids Presents: Larry Nemecek

Our first episode of “Stolen Droids Presents” is with none other than Dr. Trek himself, Larry Nemecek.  We’re still not sure how we got so lucky but there’s a good chance he thought we were some other show and played along!

Remember, it only counts when it's Stark saying it.

We’re still figuring out this format, so apologies for the run time! Your government wants to hack you, but it’s for your own good. Also, the guys ask the listeners for info; “Who uses cable vs streaming, and what are your reasons for it?”

Star Trek Ships Are Wrong part 4

These little editorials/rants seem to be getting some more attention than I expected, so I had better speed them up!

The Details

Bear with me, as this section does seem rather broad.  We will be jumping around a tad, but for the most part we will be centering on the hull.

How Maneuvering Will Kill Everyone Aboard

In order to understand this next part of the “USS Enterprise = Deathtrap” equation, it’s important that we understand two major forces in physics; inertial mass and center of mass.

Inertial mass is the mass of an object measured by its resistance to acceleration.

Sounds simple enough right?  Everyone has experienced it to some degree.  Imagine having to push a Buick out of your driveway; even though it’s on a level surface and it has wheels to reduce friction, it’s still a pain!  It’s a pain because of its inertial mass.  When people think “mass” they often mistake it for “weight”.  In truth, however, it’s much harder to describe what defines “mass” because scientists are still working on that definition themselves.  What they do know is that mass isn’t so much about how much something weighs as it is about how much of it is there.
