Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise; thank you and the entire writers’ room, for giving me such luscious material and a layered character with depth that is unusual for an alien—so I thank you for letting me be Saru.
Also to my makeup team. It takes a village to make a Kelpian. Everyone at Alchemy Labs: Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page, James MacKinnon and the entire team in the season two makeup trailer, I would not be as pretty as I am without you.”

Haven’t you understood that the future is in the internet arena whether is online advertising or just working for businesses that are based and employ online employees. If you do not do it today you may always regret it sooner or later you’ll be force to make the switch but you won’t be in the driver’s chair any longer. What exactly are the advantages to having the ability to generate money on the web? Well there are a few. For one there’s increased capacity to automate and are working even while, you’re sleeping. You also don’t have to work at the uncomfortable and typical work environment. You can work when you want and this includes more flexibility to take that needed vacation whenever. You can work where you want–at home, in the library, in the coffee shop, at your cottage, or in your Caribbean cruise. Other huge benefits to a”earn money online” type of job are that you don’t need to worry about product whether or not storage, supply, tech support, you name it. So this sounds great ?

To hell with the Canon Extremists, I loved season two of Discovery! I’ll really miss Anson Mount and Ethan Peck, though. Can’t wait for season three!
