David F. replied to Braeden's discussion Star Trek or Star Wars? in the group The Great Debate
"Its a hard call.  I like Star War in term of the universe layout and gritty realness.   But it fails in terms of science based locations and interactions.  Star Trek is much better at the science in science fiction but is a bit too…"

David, I noticed that you didn't put your name on the members map, I was just looking to find out how close you were to the tornado that ripped through TUSCALOOSA, Alabama. Did you suffer any from that tornado?

Then I realized I went right by your fair city when I was escaping Hurricane Katrina. I was going to friends in Tupelo.  At the time I was living in Pass Christian.

Hi there David. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my new group The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
