I figure it might be good entertainment, if people develop mutant ears and
foreheads and play Star Trek Universe for a few centuries. Ganymede could be
called "Romulus" and Titan would be then home of the "Vulcans" and who would
opt to be the "butt" of jokes, but the "Klingons" for inhabiting the Rings
around Uranus? Something for the nerds of the future to do. Actually, until
the winning horse of Uploading starts comming together as a more,
pronounced, technology; we should bet our money on WIN, PLACE, and SHOW-to
borrow the parlance of Horse racing.
