If only interstellar travel were as easy as it is depicted in movies and TV shows like Star Trek...

Here are a few examples. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Re: "where no one has gone before"

    If they are aliens then they are not human.
    If they are not human then they can not be counted as human.
    Thus the phrase "where no one" referring to humans is correct.

    Of course all logic fails if you are political correct and believe that robots are human.
