If you had to come up with one question, the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?
This question might be harsh, but if you’re going to write you can’t be afraid to be harsh, to kill off your favorite character if the story calls for it or to face some painful truths about yourself.
So I’m going to give this prompt a go:
No matter how I phrase it, the question is
Would you want to be Captain of the USS Enterprise
Battlestar ( Galactica )
I’m old school, and adventurous and I really do love the strange, the campy and the unique.
The Galactica and it’s crew are streamlined, sexy, edgy, and dare I say desperate?
Yes I do say that.
I could see myself in the world of the Enterprise, but in the Galactica world?
I’m not sleek, sexy or dangerous. I don’t have a great set of boobs and a High IQ. I do think I look good in a mini-skirt and I’m no genius but the smarts that I have I use well.
So I’m not saying I wouldn’t make friends with someone who sees themselves as Captain of The Galactica. But I can see myself hanging out with someone who can be great in a fight and has a bunch of weird and wonderful friends.
So Beam me up Scotty and let’s go for it.
