Flying the Coop

Another chapter, a new adventure…

The Kobayashi Maru.

Writing a blog post every day is difficult. But I can do it!

I mean, I really don’t know what to write about right now so I’ll just start writing. An idea will eventually come to me. Right? Maybe not. I’m going to give a go either way.

Here I go!! Writing… stuff. Just waiting for inspiration to hit me. Not that I want to be hit literally—just figuratively.

Note to self: I don’t think that I used that em dash correctly, but you’ll just have to deal with it.

*le gasp* Inspiration!!



Actually, yes. Inspiration.


You know what would be fun? Taking the Kobayashi Maru test! They should make it an actual thing. Or I could totally program Artemis with a Kobayashi Maru-like scenario. Yasss… Or maybe someone has already done that?

*opens new tab*


*writes action stars of me googling*

I found this, this (which leads to this), this, and this. I’ll have to figure it out later.

OH!!! Duh dur! I should find a group with which to play Artemis!! This is so stupidly obvious, Matthew. *shakes head* Come on.

Why am I talking about the Kobayashi Maru? Because I was watching Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, I then looked at the Wikipedia page for the Pirates series of movies. I noticed the gross box office… money income thingy… that thing. Anyway, I was suddenly curious about the numbers of the Star Trek movie series, so I looked that up too. In reading that article, I saw that Winona Ryder played Spock’s mother in the 2009 film. Because of that, I wanted to see one of her scenes and loaded up the movie. A few scenes after the appearance of Amanda Grayson (Spock’s mother), we get to see Kirk winning the Kobayashi Maru—a no-win scenario to train/test Starfleet officers for command. Of course, Kirk won only because he hacked the simulator.

And now I’m explaining everything. Fab, eh?

I will now bid you a goodnight, my friends!

    I am glad you explained. It saved me the trip to google, cause I had no idea what that was (but I suspected it was a Star Trek thing and was right! Win!)
