Do Not Be Concerned

The following letter to the editor was published in Bloomington Indiana’s local newspaper, The Herald-Times on July 29th, 2022.

Should we be concerned about Janeway visit?

It was recently announced that Kate Mulgrew, who played Captain Kathryn Janeway in the NBC television series “Star Trek: Voyager,” will be coming to visit the Janeway bust for an event on Oct. 23rd of this year.

I have always been against the Janeway statue but have decided to break my silence on this occasion. The bust is clearly a violation of the Temporal Prime Directive and will cause irreversible damage to the timeline if the future Janeway, who will be born in Bloomington in the year 2344, is allowed to see it and learn of the future adventures of her and her crew.

We know that Captain Janeway will be notorious for her disregard for the timeline, stating at one point “Temporal mechanics give me a headache.” We cannot trust that she will learn about Voyager getting stranded in the Delta Quadrant and allow it to happen the way it is supposed to. This will affect literally billions of lives, and endanger the Federation’s future success against the threat of the Borg Collective.

Do you want causality loops and paradoxes? Because this is how you get causality loops and paradoxes. Bring down with the Janeway statue, save the timeline.

Charlie Bird Visits Janeway

If you’re from Bloomington, or visit Bloomington often you might be aware of a somewhat famous bird, named Charlie.

He can be found at our Farmers Market, the Public Library and other places downtown quite often.

Charlie Bird has been suffering from some health issues, and so it was decided to create a children’s book to highlight the places Charlie loves to visit.  The digital version was released last night, with a page highlighting his visit to The Captain Janeway Statue.

If you want to learn more about Charlie, and his adventures please visit his website at or his facebook page.

A good captain always gives credit where credit is due, with that there are a couple of other people to thank as well.

Sarah Milward, the author of this book whom I communicated with over subspace communications and the artist who put the words into beautiful imagery, Winnie King.  You can find more information on Winnie through her facebook page, Winnie King Comics, or on instagram at @winniefrez.
