    Anyone who can be that wrong about history isn't going to be doing the right thing when it comes to space exploration.
    Or he knows a moon base is ****ing useless.

    Yes....and then we should make the rest of the world pay rent for tagging along. It's our moon.

    While he is certainly the world's foremost expert on the topic of being ****ing useless, that clearly disqualifies him from be able to determine if anything else is also ****ing useless.

    The military/commercial/scientific/ facility that needs to be established on the moons is most bodaciously not useless, not if one wishes the human race to have a long term future as long term is defined in scales of stellar and galactic lifetimes. If you consider the ultimate future of the human race to be death on this one single planet, then yes, a lunar colony is useless. Otherwise, it is essential.

    Veeger was interfered with by aliens, who had an interest in a petty trinket but no interest whatsoever in the race of aliens who would and could build such a thing. Star Trek never made any effort to make much sense.

    Are you out of your mind?

    What about the Klingons? Cylons? Storm Troopers? Bugs? Goa' uld? Aliens? Predators? Carrot Top? Sarah Palin?

    As we all should know (unless you live in a cave) there are a many number of dangers in the Galaxy. Assuming that we can defend ourselves from planet Earth is foolish. No...a forward base is the answer.

    Then having established one up there, let us deport all Politicians from every country up there and let them sort out the problems prior to being permitted to return to Earth.
    Also let us deport all sexual deviants to Venus.

    Bold part is a bad idea...

    After all, there are rocks up there that could be dropped.

    I don't see a problem with placing the sexual deviants on the same celestial body as the politicians.
