I am American and I have never seen photos like this. I had no idea there are borders like this. Even though I LOVE the idea of open borders, I am staring at these pictures like “wait…people can just…walk across some stones or grass and BE IN ANOTHER COUNTRY??? and nobody stops them?? how does that WORK?!” So you can tell that my country’s propaganda has gotten to me by convincing me that this CAN’T work even though…it…obviously can.

These pics just seem unreal to me. I’ve been taught my whole life that this can’t exist. In 27 years no one has ever sat me down and gone, look, here’s how it is elsewhere. It isn’t impossible at all.

I want to add something, but I’d just be restating what they said. I.. didn’t know peace and kindness like this was possible.

Myself I prefer “hominid” as being that touch less specific. But elsewhere I’ve used “vulcanoid” and/or similar when the phrasing or POV seems to require it. It’s a matter of tone. (And of what’s going on in the narrator’s head.) (And who the narrator is.)

I’d say you’re right there. Subtlety is always going to be preferable in these situations; if a useful technology has already put its head up over the parapet (so to speak) but is being held back by a lack of some other technology or technique, that would be the place to drop a useful hint or have someone come down with a sudden case of serendipity.

Cliff Nielsen has been my artist on the Young Wizards books for many years. I had NO idea whatever that he’d ventured over into the Star Trek end of things.

Isn’t this beautiful!
