Oh, cheeky Trek references!
It would seem that Earth (is there an Earth? Or is there just some kind of dome where it used to be?) is becoming comically evil. It's like the stuff that conspiracy theorists dream up. Maybe part of it was the overacted evil purring of the wicked witch though :P
It's all thoroughly going down the pan!
Also. Marcus <3
I could get used to this character. In fact I could come to like him. A lot~
