SciFiChat transcript: Sept. 14, 2012

SciFiChat, the Twitter chat for the geek in you.

Each Friday, I moderate #SciFiChat, a Twitterchat covering various topics about speculative fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, horror, and urban fantasy. The chat looks at books, television programs, movies, comics, role-playing games and video games.

I have often been asked if transcripts exist of any of the SciFiChats. Sadly, they do not.

So, starting today, I will post the transcripts of the SciFiChat on my blog, under the category “SciFiChat.” I will also be posting a preview of each week’s SciFiChat, so please check in weekly.

SciFiChat: September 14, 2012: Artificial Intelligence

Satu Makeda. Actress, Singer, TV Host, and Director. Guest of SciFiChat this week.

This week’s SciFiChat topic was “Artificial Intelligence.” Our interview guest was the remarkably beautiful, talented and geeky Satu Makeda, who goes by the handle @TheFinalFangirl. She is an actress, singer, TV host (Nerd Noise), & director. You can find everything you want to know about her at her website, and trust me, you really want to know.

Marianne G. Petrino @NineTiger: @robynmcintyre And bend your knees in tight #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @scifichat A1 Anyone remember this film? #Scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @richmagahiz The Forbin Project? Loved it. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @TheFinalFangirl for “first” A.I. loves, I’d go with R. Daneel Olivaw CAVES OF STEEL by Asimov #scifichat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @TheFinalFangirl When I was little, I wanted to BE Data. I did the head movements and everything. Drove my dad nuts. #scifichat

Marianne G. Petrino @NineTiger: @robynmcintyre That really drives you Insaneeeeee #scifichat

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: #SciFiChat Q2: At what point does a computer become sentient? #IBM #HAL #scifi #robots #computers #iPhone

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @adamlefever I’ve never read about’em. Maybe they were. #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @richmagahiz I really liked it ’cause Forbin didn’t win in the end, but you knew he wouldn’t stop trying #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @JLichtenberg @robynmcintyre How about Westworld, with Yul Brynner? #Scifichat

theakpal @theakpal: @DavidRozansky #scifichat A2: When Skynet goes online.

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @scifichat A2: when it starts making calls for pizza? #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @richmagahiz I remember the film -and- have read the books. (thirty years ago) #scifichat

Marianne G. Petrino @NineTiger: @scifichat When it orders a tall caramel macchiato? #scifichat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @scifichat When it has had enough of our shit and does its own thing! #scifichat #moriarty

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @scifichat A2 When it can write poetry. *Good* poetry #Scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @richmagahiz @JLichtenberg Awesome. He scared the BJeezus out of me #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: The Butlerian Jihad trilogy by @TheKJA and Brian Herbert was good, too. #dune #SciFiChat

OhVoter @OHvoter: .@DavidRozansky #scifichat a2: when it comments on, jokes about, and edits, its own source code

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: A2 #scifichat WWW trilogy discussing “Awakening” of the computer into sentience. I think Robert J. Sawyer is right.: View summary

theakpal @theakpal: @richmagahiz #scifichat Is there such a thing as good poetry? I’m not sold on this. πŸ™‚

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: A2: Feeling emotion, like Marvin, or experiencing physical sensation, like Data. Then there is the emotion chip addition. #scifichat

Adam Lefever @adamlefever: A2: When it 1) Seeks knowledge 2) Is willing to fight for its own survival #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @JLichtenberg @TheFinalFangirl When I read Caves Of Steel at about 25 I said, “I wanna robot like that.” #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @theakpal @richmagahiz Yeah – good poetry is like distilled literature #scifichat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: RT @richmagahiz: @scifichat A2 When it can write poetry. *Good* poetry #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: A2 maybe when it can CRY? #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @theakpal I dabble in writing some, now and then. It’s more successful than my prose. #Scifichat

Thaddeus Howze @ebonstorm: @scifichat When it decides to do things in ITS best interest. Innate selfishness beyond one’s programming is sentience. #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @robynmcintyre That was generally the kind of character he played #Scifichat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: #scifichat At what point does mimicking emotion become the real thing? You become what you pretend to be, eventually.

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @TheFinalFangirl Being an SF writer by trade, I instantly ask “What if emotion does not distinguish us from A.I.?” #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @AKOTAS You pushing for #geekcred in front of the geekmedia? #SciFiChat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @AKOTAS @TheFinalFangirl I re-read some of those robot novels a few years ago and found they didn’t hold up for me #Scifichat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: A2: When it can withhold rational thought, discern between good and evil. Using it’s own morals and ethics. #scifichat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @JLichtenberg Crying implies emotion, which is not a requirement of sentience. I would think that errors might be, however. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @ebonstorm Or maybe when the A.I. gets caught in the quandry between altruism and self-interest? #scifichat

Adam Lefever @adamlefever: Hopefully it HAS morals and ethics!!! RT @TheFinalFangirl: A2: […]Using it’s own morals and ethics. #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat A2. I knew Data had a soul at the end of In Theory when he threw out his dating algorithms in a snit. #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @TheFinalFangirl I’d say when it devises its own moral code vs the one originally downloaded into it #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: RT @richmagahiz: @AKOTAS @TheFinalFangirl Old “robot” novels can’t “hold up” because we’ve got iPhone5 and Siri! #scifichat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @TheFinalFangirl It’s own? Does anyone actually have their own, or are they operating from a social framework #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @DavidRozansky We are the geekerati #Scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: #SciFiChat Q3: Should sentient machines have human rights? #scifi #robots #law #humanity #computers #philosophy

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: #SciFiChat Q3: Should sentient machines have human rights? #scifi #robots #law #humanity #computers #philosophy

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat I knew Voyager’s EMH had a soul when he was rebooted and still remembered his favorite music. #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @JLichtenberg Nope. By that definition, politicians are sentient. #SciFiChat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @JLichtenberg @TheFinalFangirl I always thought the line was a lot less clear than we thought. Emotions are chemical. #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @JLichtenberg @AKOTAS @TheFinalFangirl It wasn’t the tech, it was the infodumps and the flat characters (the human ones) #Scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @whateversusan @JLichtenberg @TheFinalFangirl So is thinking to a certain extent. #scifichat

theakpal @theakpal: @DavidRozansky #scifichat A3: no, because they’re not human. However, they should have the same rights as a human.

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: A3 Robert Heinlein tackled many angles of the “rights” issues – it wasn’t PODKAYNE OF MARS – a later juvenile though #scifichat

Jaleta Clegg @Jaleta_Clegg: #scifichat Sentience has to involve self-awareness. Are some animals sentient? I’d argue yes.

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @scifichat A3) Only in as much as they can be defined by anthropomorphic rights. Can disembodied AIs be tortured/physically hurt? #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @DavidRozansky Uh, no, I’m saying I don’t remember them -well-. #scifichat

Adam Lefever @adamlefever: A3: Hmm… they’re not human, so no… but we will probably have robot parts as well. The idea would have to be re-thought. #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @scifichat A3 They’ll probably want transhuman rights #Scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @J_GriffinB @scifichat Could one be kept as a slave or mentally/emotionally abused? #scifichat

Jaleta Clegg @Jaleta_Clegg: @J_GriffinB Is switching off an AI considered murder? #scifichat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @robynmcintyre @JLichtenberg @TheFinalFangirl Yeah, it’s all reactions, electricity, chemicals, etc. #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: If morality is not common to all sentient beings, then I would argue that a moral code is not part of the equation. #SciFiChat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @adamlefever Exactly: Senient rights. #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat A3. Yes, but first there may have to be a legal definition of sentient. #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @DavidRozansky I’d tend to go along w/ that, since morality is relative #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @Jaleta_Clegg Good point we do have sentient animals (e.g. dolphins, some primates) even on Earth #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @Jaleta_Clegg @J_GriffinB Or is it just a nap? #Scifichat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: A3: At what point does A.I. deserve the same rights as a human being.. Sentient rights vs. human rights. hmmm #scifichat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @J_GriffinB @scifichat I wonder what rights they would demand for themselves? Self-determination would likely still be the base. #scifichat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @Jaleta_Clegg Deletion, I would think, yes. Turning off? Infringing on their freedom to speak or move. #scifichat

Thaddeus Howze @ebonstorm: @DavidRozansky No, they need to have a series of rights designed for their needs and relationship to Humanity. #scifichat

theakpal @theakpal: @Jaleta_Clegg #scifichat that would depend if it can be turned back on with no ill effects.

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @whateversusan I’d agree w/ that #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: A3 if we give “rights” to animals, surely then our other “possessions” likewise have rights? In Bible, slaves had rights #scifichat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: A3: A.I. have their own set of rights, I would say. #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @Jaleta_Clegg The movie AI seemed to tackle the question of “Can AI’s have souls?” pretty well. #SciFiChat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @scifichat A3 The central question in Blade Runner #Scifichat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @whateversusan The right to copy oneself does this = reproductive rights? If someone has a copy, did they kidnap you? #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @J_GriffinB @whateversusan If you make a clone of yourself, does the clone have your rights or do you own it? #scifichat

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: The discussion phase of #SciFiChat is over. It’s time to interview @TheFinalFangirl. Please. let’s give her the floor for next 20 minutes.

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @TheFinalFangirl A3 @DavidRozansky has good point: do “rights” require “sentience?” #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: AI’s will probably get any rights they win through warfare and politics, I guess. I vote politics. #SciFiChat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: RT @ebonstorm: @DavidRozansky No, they need to have a series of rights designed for their needs and relationship to Humanity. #scifichat

theakpal @theakpal: @J_GriffinB #scifichat No, that’s called pirating. πŸ™‚

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: The #SciFiChat guest is Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl, Satu Makeda, actress, singer, #tv host (Nerd Noise), & director.

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @whateversusan The right to copy oneself does this = reproductive rights? If someone makes a copy, did they kidnap you? #scifichat

Adam Lefever @adamlefever: I’ve been working on a list of “Robot Rights” for awhile now. I have nine of them. #scifichat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @theakpal Only if I did not purchase the copy. #scifichat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @J_GriffinB We might run into a similar issue with clones someday. Would we want unlicensed clones of ourselves out there? #scifichat

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: .@TheFinalFangirl Welcome to #SciFiChat, it’s good ot have you here.

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: Whoa #scifichat is trending in New Haven! Cool!

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @adamlefever Yes! #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: remember to check to see if Twitter turned your trend settings to “personalized trends” without your knowledge. #SciFiChat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @adamlefever @J_GriffinB Do Twitter bots have intelligence? What about the ones who talk to other bots all day? #scifichat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @whateversusan I think one must differentiate between intelligence and sentience. #scifichat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: Would you date an A.I.? #scifichat

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: .@TheFinalFangirl tell us about your show, Nerd Noise. #geek #fandom #TV #YouTube #SciFiChat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @LacyHumphrey3 *pokes with a stick* You there. Are you sentient? #scifichat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: #NerdNoise is an entertainment web series covering all things nerd: comics, sci-fi, horror, fantasy, supernatural etc. #scifichat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @TheFinalFangirl Unless she’s got a hot bot running about, no. #scifichat I am not into non-physical dating relationships. #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: .@TheFinalFangirl ELO wrote the song on that. She’s so very nice, she’s as cold as ice, and she is an IBM. #SciFiChat

Delvin Fannin @HaouDelio: @TheFinalFangirl I dont think I could ever do that #scifichat

theakpal @theakpal: @whateversusan #scifichat now you went and done it: ‘she’ called all her friends to join the party.

L. C. Coffin @TheDweadPiwate: #scifichat It hit me the other day, and really sunk in, that we’ll most likely never get to live on space ships in our lifetime…

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: I host and produce the show, and travel around the globe to fan conventions (Star Trek, Stargate, Comic Con etc.). #scifichat

Myoshi Marilla @myoshimarilla: Am I the only one to be kind of happy to know that #scifichat exists? Thanks TT’s!

Von Malcolm @VonMalcolm: @TheFinalFangirl Would an A.I. date a human?! #SciFiChat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @TheFinalFangirl That sounds awesome! #scifichat

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @VonMalcolm That is a better question! #scifichat

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: .@TheFinalFangirl What inspired you to become an actress with such a strong “geek” persona? #SciFiChat

Don @djfanco: @J_GriffinB @whateversusan But I would’ve expected creatures to be welcome in #SciFiChat It’s not speciest, is it?

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @djfanco @J_GriffinB @whateversusan More like specious… #scifichat

Thaddeus Howze @ebonstorm: Dating an AI depends entirely on what you two had in common. If you had enough in common, why not? Meeting of the minds… #scifichat

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @J_GriffinB @VonMalcolm We need the Space Pope to weigh in on this! #scifichat #dontdaterobots

Adam Lefever @adamlefever: @VonMalcolm @TheFinalFangirl Humans will want to date/sleep with/marry A.I. I’m sure this will happen. #scifichat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: I am a geek for dark rock musicals. It was Jesus Christ Superstar that did me in. I wanted to travel to strange lands and sing.:) #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @adamlefever @VonMalcolm @TheFinalFangirl That’s why they’re building lifelike plastic girls even now. #scifichat

[EDITOR’S NOTE: At this point, the chat was suddenly inundated with spam, apparently from bots.]

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: Should we switch to #SciFiChat2?

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: Let’s switch #SciFiChat to #SciFiChat2. On my mark. 1, 2, 3 mark.

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: How exclusive #scifichat2 #norobots

Jaleta Clegg @Jaleta_Clegg: Does anyone ever click those bot links? #scifichat2

theakpal @theakpal: #scifichat2 so, where were we? Remember not to feed the troll-bots.

Thaddeus Howze @ebonstorm: Does this mean we are becoming interesting, relevant or did someone’s mommy not hug them enough when they were a child? #scifichat2

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: Well, the robots are squatting on the old hashtag. This, fellow humans, is our grim future. #scifichat2

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @TheFinalFangirl Thanks for staying with us through the invasion! #scifichat2

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: Did we get everyone on #SciFiChat2? Please ping the tag.

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @scifichat The most wonderful thing is seeing the absolute joy on everyone’s face. All that happiness is addicting. And Cosplay. #scifichat2

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: This is the first time we had to switch to channel 2. Hope this works. #SciFiChat2

Jaleta Clegg @Jaleta_Clegg: #scifichat2 I’m blaming twitter-bots on Peggy, the tech support guy in those weird commercials.

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @whateversusan How appropriate, that we were invaded by bots during our A.I. convo! #scifichat2

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @whateversusan We’ve proven the existence of artificial stupidity #SciFiChat2

Tony Noland @TonyNoland: I’ve got a few minutes before I have to run off again. Let’s see what’s going on in #scifichat2

Jaleta Clegg @Jaleta_Clegg: @richmagahiz As if organic stupidity was too scarce. #SciFiChat2

Von Malcolm @VonMalcolm: When is an A.I. sentient? When it can switch to #SciFiChat2 without being programmed to do so! – #SciFiChat

Thaddeus Howze @ebonstorm: @richmagahiz @whateversusan I am sorry to say there was nothing “artificial” about that stupidity. That is the genuine article. #scifichat2

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: @richmagahiz Figures that would get popular first. #scifichat2

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: .@TheFinalFangirl Please tell us about Captian Schoolgirl. Where can we learn more? #SciFiChat2

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @adamlefever More like a force of un-nature #scifichat2

Delvin Fannin @HaouDelio: Oh goodness the switch is almost to much for my brain #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @scifichat Captain Schoolgirl (created by Will Finan and I) started as a skit on TV, a comic book, then a short web series… #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @scifichat I have since written a 1/2 hour TV pilot-you can follow updates on twitter @CaptSchoolgirl and FB /captainschoolgirl #scifichat2

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: Let’s move on to the Q&A session. Who has questions for @TheFinalFangirl? #SciFiChat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: I can’t recall getting spammed like this before, but #litchat did I think and changed their hashtag #scifichat

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: In the meantime, #NerdNoise has some new episodes coming up including a new Bladerunner clothing line + horror-inspired perfume #scifichat2

Susan Jane Bigelow @whateversusan: Okay #scifichat2 I gotta get back to revising this SF novel… πŸ™‚

Marianne G. Petrino @NineTiger: What the heck happened? I step away for a minute, then whamo spamo! #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @theakpal it was a web series before web series- its actually on myspace. The new script is redesigning the whole thing πŸ™‚ #scifichat2

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: Finally, I feel like being the moderator means something besides just being snarky all the time. #SciFiChat2

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @NineTiger I taunted the wrong tiger, it seems. #scifichat2

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: .@NineTiger I’d explain what happened, but then they’d find out where we all ran off to. #SciFiChat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @robynmcintyre I will add the link soon- the character is having a complete makeover and new origin story as well #scifichat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @DavidRozansky Oh, you’re a good moderator – very good questions, great comments #scifichat2

J. Griffin Barber @J_GriffinB: @TheFinalFangirl Isn’t that a bit daring, rebranding this close to a launch? #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @Jaleta_Clegg The new version will be a “Glee” audience. High school problems, but not showing anything too risque #scifichat2

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @TheFinalFangirl Oh, that would go well with my Han Solo outfit and my Indiana Jones hat! #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @theakpal The old Captain Schoolgirl had the ability to give guys x-ray vision πŸ˜‰ but new has yet to discover her natural power. #scifichat2

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @TheFinalFangirl Horror-inspired perfume doesn’t smell corpsey, does it? #SciFiChat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @JLichtenberg Not on there much but I exist #scifichat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @TheFinalFangirl Old SF novel saying: if you don’t tell kids they can’t do telepathy, they’ll be able to #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @richmagahiz It’s really cool- they even have superhero scents. It’s more of a “gothic” line, look for October ep. #NerdNoise #scifichat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @TheFinalFangirl added you to circles on google+ – don’t want to lose you. #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: RT @JLichtenberg: @TheFinalFangirl Old SF novel saying: if you dont tell kids they cant do telepathy, theyll be able to #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @DavidRozansky sure! I’ll take a gander! #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: Tumblr too: #scifichat2: View summary

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @theakpal right – patchouli has “chou” in the middle for a REASON #scifichat2

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: I wonder if ‘taking a gander’ came from having watch-geese… #scifichat2

Adam Lefever @adamlefever: @Jaleta_Clegg Was that Newton’s Fourth Law? πŸ™‚ #scifichat2

Kathrine Roid @KathrineRoid: Hello, #scifichat2. Cowering before our spambot overlords, are we?

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat Thanks, @TheFinalFangirl. #scifichat2

Satu Makeda @TheFinalFangirl: @Jaleta_Clegg will be both this time- empowering for young women/teens and mostly a confidence booster for high schoolers #scifichat2

theakpal @theakpal: @adamlefever I think that happened with No Child Left Behind. #scifichat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @TheFinalFangirl Oh, and I teach writing on where I post on Tuesdays #scifichat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @TheFinalFangirl My only prob with being a teen was that nobody thought I was an adult #scifichat2

Jaleta Clegg @Jaleta_Clegg: @KathrineRoid I work for school district and have a BS in HS Education – science and math. I could spout for years… #scifichat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @DavidRozansky Are we switching back for next week? #scifichat2

Jaleta Clegg @Jaleta_Clegg: @scifichat Netflix to the rescue. Have to admit I haven’t watched Voyager much. #SciFiChat #scifi #SciFiChat2

Kathrine Roid @KathrineRoid: @TheFinalFangirl You may add my thanks to the tally. The tale end of the discussion I caught was very interesting, #scifichat2 1/2

Kathrine Roid @KathrineRoid: @TheFinalFangirl 2/2 and I will definitely go back and read what I missed. #scifichat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @Jaleta_Clegg Nobody watched VOYAGER “much” — once was enough mostly, but I just LOVE Janeway #scifichat2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @Jaleta_Clegg the writers and directors ruined Janeway, but the acting saved her! #scifichat2

Jaleta Clegg @Jaleta_Clegg: @JLichtenberg We didn’t have a local station that carried it when it was on air. Haven’t caught up on it yet. #scifichat2

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @JLichtenberg I thought most of the characters were annoying, though I liked the Dr. Hologram #scifichat2

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @Jaleta_Clegg (Don’t tell anyone – I didn’t like it) #scifichat

Tennyson E. Stead @tennysonestead: @JLichtenberg I’m watching the series now for the first time… and Seasons 4 and 5 are outstanding. #scifichat2

Tennyson E. Stead @tennysonestead: @JLichtenberg …and Janeway is great – the most conflicted and unprepared of the captains, which forces her to be stronger. #scifichat2

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @DavidRozansky Good luck with that! #scifichat #scifichat2
