This is one post of many about Psychology. The Enterprise computer system is controlled by three primary main processor cores, cross-linked with a redundant melacortz ramistat, fourteen kiloquad interface modules. Mr. Worf, you do remember how to fire phasers? I suggest you drop it, Mr. Data. Besides, you look good in a dress. Fate protects fools, little children and ships named Enterprise. Computer, belay that order. Continue reading Riker On Psychology
