Mabrick: It Will Be a Long Winter

The war is over. The Cluster Fuck Coalition won. TEST could not hold up under the constant strain of around the clock warfare. Their Saint Paul’s Cathedral burned to the ground when the fire watch quit. Some will say it was inevitable. That’s not worth the pixels needed to display it, …

Jester’s Trek: Well, that escalated quickly…

First, if you haven’t already done so, go out and read this masterful article by Lockefox on TMC.  It is — by far — the best thing written on TMC so far this year, an incisive, well-researched article into the history of moon-goo in general and its impact on the CFC in …
