Megabooks Yikes! Doesn‘t sound like my kind of husband! 1mo
LiterRohde @Megabooks People always talk about the past as though it were better. I thought this fit well with the episode. 1mo
Megabooks @LiterRohde Very true. I‘m only 39, and so much, from a sociological standpoint, has changed in my lifetime. 1mo

I still have to finish this duology, but it definitely takes place in a #FutureImperfect.


Megabooks I‘ve thought about reading these! One of 8 million books I haven‘t gotten to. 😕 1mo
jmtrivera @Megabooks I know! I've been reading so well this year, but I hit a slump with my last book and now I'm like, ALL THE BOOKS I HAVEN'T READ YET! 1mo

TNG epi 4.8 #FutureImperfect: Riker waking up 16 years in the future with a son, a captaincy and a wild case of WTF. Or does he? Simple plot, ok acting, GREAT aging makeup and BAD creature makeup (Lord, is the alien bad!). Not transcendant but fun.

My favourite waking-in-the-future story is one of the first: Looking Backward by Edward Bellamy (1888) is a socialist utopia that stands up better than many golden age SF.

suzisteffen Oh yes, Looking Backward is amazing. We actually read it in a history class at university. 1mo
tournevis @suzisteffen I love it! 1mo
suzisteffen @tournevis yeah, good socialist prof. ;) 1mo

Megabooks Lovely episode analysis! Interesting book. 👍🏻🖖🏻 1mo
Megabooks Who doesn‘t like what Mom and I call skunk stripes in everyone‘s hair! 1mo
tournevis @Megabooks I do! Seriously though, the aged makeup in this epi is better than in any other TNG epi. It's pretty bad in the finale, and Soong, gah! 1mo
tournevis @Megabooks This book is great. In that future, you know who are the only true artists left, the last real celebrities? Hair dressers. 1mo

Future Imperfect is another one of my favorite TNG episodes. I totally bought into the time jump, Riker with his touch of grey hair, Data as his first officer. Not that I don't like Picard, but Riker is my favorite TNG character, so I like him as captain of the Enterprise.

Megabooks I like the episode, too. What do you think of Picard‘s goatee? 1mo
RamsFan1963 @Megabooks I think the goatee fits Picard but it should have been a hint. If you see a Star Trek character with a goatee, who usually doesn't have facial hair, then they're the bad guy, aka Spock in the mirror universe 1mo
Megabooks @RamsFan1963 😂😂😂 truth! 1mo

#FutureImperfect #StarTrekSummerMay

I‘ve read about a number of imperfect futures that I seriously hope don‘t come true. I started with the YA series, like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Uglies, but later I started reading a few adult dystopian novels. Many of them frighten me! But I continue reading them.

BarbaraBB Great collage! I enjoy reading dystopian novels a lot. Which I am surprised of myself, since I don‘t like SF, fantasy and YA. What is your favorite? 1mo
Cinfhen Same @BarbaraBB !!!! Have you read 1mo

Megabooks @BarbaraBB Station Eleven is my all-time favorite book ever!!! I was going on a feminist theme, so I excluded it. Of the more recent three in the collage Red Clocks is my fav, especially with the recent law in Georgia! 1mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen We‘re #booktwins again 💕! I have read Station Eleven but not the midlife. Will stack immediately! Some favorites of mine are 1mo
Moodyreader The handmaid‘s tale DEVASTATED me 1mo
BarbaraBB Oh and 1mo
Megabooks I‘ve never read @Cinfhen Unnamed Midwife or Never Let Me Go. #stacked! (edited) 1mo
BarbaraBB @Megabooks i haven‘t read The Red Clocks yet but I do have a copy so I‘ll definitely read it soon! 1mo
Megabooks I‘m stacking The Fahrenheit Twins! Thanks @BarbaraBB !! 1mo
Megabooks @Moodyreader Right?!? 1mo
Moodyreader It took me ages to read it because i couldn‘t read much at a time 1mo
Cinfhen Really liked Red Clocks @BarbaraBB I think you will as well. I‘m stacking both of your other suggestions. I‘ve read Never Let Me Go but I didn‘t love it. 1mo
Cinfhen I‘ll be checking back later for more suggestions... great post, Meg 🙌🏻‼️ 1mo
QueenJen I haven't read this yet, but I felt exactly the same way about Parable of the Sower (trilogy) by Octavia Butler. Y'all, there's a "make America great again" speech in it! 1mo
Megabooks @QueenJen wow! I haven‘t read it so I didn‘t know that! 1mo
