My friend Allison Parrish has just released @CheapSpaceNine, a Twitter bot* that produces randomly generated plot summaries for nonexistent episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Sample summaries:


Jadzia is forced to play the bodies—and O'Brien, who is selected to become the end, announces the station.


The funeral arrangements mastermind Brunt. Worf talks with Breen ships. Beverage profits, however, react strongly to Q.


A war questions their quarters. An engineering team reveals humanoid farmers.



Friends who love DS9: enjoy!

* A Twitter bot is an Twitter account that posts automatically generated tweets. The programmer who writes the program that automatically generates the tweets is often remixing some pre-existing text, images, data, et cetera. Here's the text of "Writing Aliens", or, "Duchamp, Markov, Queneau: A Mostly Delightful Quilt", a talk about the art of Twitter bots that my spouse Leonard Richardson gave as his Guest of Honor speech at Foolscap 2014.

My friend asks:

Anyone here who has left tech or similar profession & gone into ministry / pastoral care? Or know someone who has?
