    StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return!

    Is it just me or does that bear a remarkable morphological resemblance to Commander Janeway’s starship Voyager from the Trek spin off?

    (If you set aside the pillow it seems to be taking with its head that is! Okay, a little less pointy at the bow as well.)

    Looks more like Kosh’s ship from Babylon 5 to me.

    Captain Janeway that is, sorry – d’oh! Mea culpa.

    Hmm .. yep, possibly. That sure was a ship too! Aptly a living one if my possibly unreliable memory serves. (Been a while.)

    Bloomin’ hell that is gorgeous. Real otherworldly vibe to it, cephalopods never cease to amaze.

    Heart of glass.

    Not surprising, in a body of glass.

    Awesome visual. Can’t wait for little Cthulhu to grow up.

    Actually if I’m reminded of a ship its the Excalibur – from the shortlived scifi tv series of the same name I think (not 100% there.)
