^^They've hinted that she might come back (but probably not). Apparently it was a scheduling conflict with a Netflix movie she's in.

I forgot to mention my latest guilty pleasure: the new Sabrina the Teenage Witch show on Netflix. It's surprisingly entertaining and dark. It's got cannibalism, children served up for dinner, Sabrina performing human sacrifice and a main character who is under house arrest for trying to blow up the Vatican. And Miranda Otto (aunt Zelda) praising Satan and ranting about the false god and his propaganda machine never gets old. It's definitely not the Sabrina I grew up with.

And since we don't have a gaming thread, I'm currently replaying the Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It's an awesome game with so much rigint stuff in it. Secret FEMA internment camps, human experimentation, corporations taking over, the media fabricating and twisting the news, mind control, dodgy implants, spooky AIs, cults, geo-engineering, private military contractors up to nefarious shit and shadowy, powerful people pulling all the strings, all set in a cyberpunk near future. It's like they looked at rigint for inspiration and decided to go with all of it.

Watching both, of course, quasi involuntarily. And here I skipped every single Star Trek since the 1967 series except for the movies and the animated series, having seen only a couple of episodes of Deep Space Nine.

Disco is much more effective emotionally in the second season, having crammed way too much to establish its multiple empires and universes in the first. It's pure space opera with copious soap and either you like it or you don't.


Wait, did you mean Sisko?
Born we are the same, within the silence, indifference be Thy name
Torn we walk alone, we sleep in silent shades
The grandeur fades, the meaning never known- 'Born' Nevermore

No, DISCO, as in Discovery. On the show, when the characters go jogging in the ship corridors (I have trouble imagining that as fun) they wear these t-shirts:


I really like those!
To Justice my maker from on high did incline:
I am by virtue of its might divine,
The highest Wisdom and the first Love.
