      Going to see actor Bryan Cranston LIVE today, at a speaking event downtown.  We’ve had the tickets for over a month.  And, of course, I woke up with a cough and sore throat.   My apologies in advance to any people I may infect tonight...

    • The last episode I watched this morning on BBCA was "Arena", god it's so cheesy but it's so good!
    • According to Minuet (who was programmed by the Bynars said) - "A star in the Bynar system went supernova and they miscalculated." That suggested it was an in-system star. If any star went supernova in an inhabited star system, it most likely would wipe out the planets orbiting them - to say nothing about the state of their computer. Of course you could always dismiss it as they were hasty in programming Minuet so that it came off like that. Besides, if it did go supernova, wouldn't the long-range sensors of the Federation detect such? Well, it is possible that Bynas may have been a very recent addition to the UFP by the time of the episode, which would explain them "putting all their eggs in one basket." In future, they probably would have backup systems.
    • It depends on Bynar’s orbit, and the relative size of the star as well.  Maybe the sun that flared was a small, barely visible brown dwarf star orbiting the main star; or at the edge of their system (maybe somewhere in their Oort cloud?).   Maybe that tiny, relatively cold sun had a ‘gas attack’ and belched some serious gamma or x-rays (ate a really spicy planet...).  Since exoplanets were first charted, it seems they have far wilder orbits (and proximities to their suns) than we ever used to guess at in our wildest imaginings.  Who knows what the Bynar’s home system actually looks like; we only saw their planet and what appeared to be a sun.   Or the simpler explanation: maybe they (writers or Bynars) simply misused the word ‘nova’ and meant another type of extreme solar event (?). And yes, that was somewhat poor planning for such of advanced race to have only ONE on-world computer like that; maybe a backup drive on another planet/moon elsewhere?  Or are they capable of space travel?   Wonder. LSTIW: 

      VGR:  “Non-Sequitur” and “Twisted.” 
    • That star would have to be DOZENS of light years away not to have lethal effects on the Bynar Homeworld. Furthermore, does their link to their central computer have limits? I would have to think it does. Wouldn't they have other computers elsewhere they could link to in case of a travesty like this instead of relying on putting their eggs in one basket?
