Based off some stupid Facebook arguments about whether Star Trek science is “real” or not, I’ve started a new webcomic series called Real Physics Star Trek, which explores what life aboard the Enterprise might look like if they had to obey the realistic limitations of physics and technology, without any magic space rocks to generate unlimited energy, warp the fabric of space/time, or convert energy into matter and back again. As expected, it kind of sucks.

New episodes will be posted semi-regularly on http://realphysicsstartrek.com, at least until I get bored or drive this premise into the ground.
