Old Science Fiction Thoughts

- In Star Trek the Next Generation, it is known to  be absolutely essential that everyone should have an understanding of calculus.
- it is also a truism that human beings as a species all love their children and would never ever choose to give a child up, even to a life of peace and plenty. 

I conclude that the society of STNG is a lot stronger on maths than it is on history. 

In Doctor Who : The Stones of Blood, the Doctor should have dumped useless Romana 1, who puts on silly shoes and falls randomly off cliffs, and recruited instead as his companion the awesomely terrifying Professor Amelia Rumford, Bronze Age archaeologist. I particularly liked her rancorous references to the idiocy of rival archaeologists.
