Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.


An interesting take on the vision of the future presented by DS9 and how it's firmly rooted in the early-to-mid '90s world of its creation. Fair enough, but I think every sci-fi story universe suffers from the same problem to some degree, it's unavoidable. We never really know the world we'll be living in before it happens, whether five years down the line or 50 (the last 10-15 years have proved that much). And it's a bit much to criticise a TV show for never portraying people engaged in relatively unproductive or solitary activities like online poker or wasting time on social media or whatever. We never see space people on the loo, either. #link
