So this year when we drove the kids up to rejoin family for a few days, I loaded up a projector and some computer hardware and introduced the extended family and friends to artemis. As my brothers and I were cobbling together a bridge in the basement my sister asked what we were doing.
"Remember when we were kids, and Scott would come over and we'd play Star Trek? Well, Scott's coming over and we're playing Star Trek." It really was a sophisticated recreation of what we used to imagine in the old living room. And yes, we let the kids play a bit too. Bedsheet hung from the rafters made a passable viewscreen Occasionally had to "clear the bridge" and remove spectators to the rear viewing gallery (too many power bar switches stepped on) Bridge featured an active wood burning stove, aka, auxiliary power. Single overhead Lifx bulb provided ambiance, thanks to bridge tools. And my son piloting a fighter in an oversized Spock uniform. We're not terrible sticklers for genre crossing... Had a great time!

Looks like a great time. I love to watch people just learning the game.
