Before I even started this blog, I would occasionally pose a SyFy Question of the Day to my facebook friends. Sometimes, it was directly related to what I was writing, and I really did want some input to help me decide what direction to take with the story. Other times, it was purely fun.
Here’s one of my favorites, from August 2011:
SyFy question of the day: The karaoke contest has a 1st place prize so wonderful you can’t resist. But you have to choose one Starfleet Bridge Crewmember (any incarnation) to sing with you. Who do you pick and what do you sing?
Katherine: Data. Hands down. Though Uhura… Damn.
US_Nessie: Fine, enter twice and double your chances lol! What do you sing with each of them?
Juno: A very adolescent Wesley Crusher, and he’d have to sing Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You”.
US_Nessie: I call dibs on Beverly Crusher. We’re gonna bust out the Tina Turner version of “Proud Mary”
Tony: Lt. Warf. “Let the Bodies Hit the Floor”, or whatever the title of that song is. 🙂
Gwendolyn: Yeah I’m going Uhura because she can sing and I can’t 😉
Though Capt. Picard would be a close runner up (Anyone seen that hilarious video of him cuttin’ a run on the bridge? LOLZ!)
Shane: Deanna Troi and I will be doing a sappy cover of Journey’s “Faithfully”.
Gawain: My first entry is definitely with Uhura – and we’ll be doing a special rendition of Dante’s Prayer.
Post Script: I’ve wavered back and forth about the whole SciFi vs SyFy thing for a long time. Saving just one little letter in a tweet isn’t really saving much, and the Polish translation is a really strong argument against SyFy! I’m not one to make changes lightly. But I think that, at the end of this year, along with other structural changes I might make to the site, I will change SyFy Question of the Day to the name SciFi Question of the Day.
Joe will be happy.
