We relate some of our All-Con experiences, then settle down to talk Maelstrom. Highlights: we wonder about Starbuck’s origin (a farm?), see her Starbuck-The-White change in new light, run down numerous “far-out” theories that suddenly seem reasonable, discuss Helo’s need for structure, spill the beans on our Viper sim featured in Popular Science this month, get schooled on X-Men, note Captain America’s need for “W-shaped tights,” and pine for April 4th. Don’t miss this weekend’s San Diego GWC meetup! Check the forum for details.
