Geek stuff, sci-fi... Due to the success of the previous incarnation, I'd figure we do another 'OSNews Asks' item; it's a nice way to get to know each other a little more on matters that are in itself fairly irrelevant. We'll continue down the path of irrelevance by asking: What Star Trek race would you want to be, given the choice? And, of course, why? I'll start: definitely Betazoid. Reading minds, telepathy, maybe even empathic abilities, no weird ridges or other facial deformations, black eyes - what's not to like? Post your choice in the comments!

Of course I'd like to be a Soong-type android. Like Data. Not immortal, but incredibly resilient. Having tons of things to aspire to and to discover. Being very often right, but not always.

Being Q might be cool, but they really seem to have no goal in life. Vulcans are good too, but their old-age weakness that makes them affect other people's minds and the side-effect the illnes has: feelings. Blah!

If I couldn't choose being an android, like Data, I'd go for Klingon. Berserk, always eager to kick some butts, true to the warrior code and loyal to the mighty empire, and never commenting their own code. Kaplah!
