Watching the Expanse after Star Trek Picard

Shortly after watching the last episode of Star Trek Picard, I binge-watched the latest season of The Expanse. The 4th season of this space SciFi show is already out for a few months, but I figured I can take my time. This is some weird ritual I tend to do with media products – also counting movies, games or music – from which I know that they are good. It’s not going anywhere, so I rather watch it when I feel like it.

Star Trek Picard

For me, the appeal of Star Trek was always its utopian vision of the future. Whilst the Expanse transfers current ethical and economical struggles into space, Star Trek puts some of these themes behind it. It’s about exploring space peacefully and searching for diplomatic resolutions of conflicts.

Star Trek Voyager Season 6

Last fall I finally started to watch Star Trek Voyager. It’s the 5th Star Trek Series and I already watched all episodes of TOS, TNG, and DS9 before. Yeah I skipped TAS, which I plan to catch up on eventually.
I did watch Voyager back in the days of free TV, I even had the VHS cassettes of the first 2 episodes. But unlike TNG or DS9 I never managed to see more than the first few seasons (at least in parts). So it was about time and I slowly but surely managed to watch one season after another. Since I recently finished the 6th Season, I wanted to highlight the three episodes I enjoyed the most.

Vienna specialty coffee tour

During the week I try to visit some third-wave coffee places after work. Since I want to gather pictures for my coffee shop list, I currently prefer places close together. Of course, another great upside is the fact that I get to taste many different coffees.

Whilst the list I’m working on strifes to be as objective as possible, this tour article contains a few personal notes and impressions. It also provides a route for a speciality coffee tour, in this case, the 6th and 7th district of Vienna.

A new blog is born

Starting a blog in 2020 might be a severe case of “late to the party”. However, it might be the perfect time to start a new one, especially since this website strives to be more than just a blog. It should also become a collection, for example, a list of specialty coffee shops in Vienna. At the same time I want to document my espresso journey, so you can expect more articles on that topic.

This blog is not my first attempt to create and maintain a directory of some sort. A few years ago I started, a website covering some parts of the video game scene in Austria. With this blog, I want to cover more topics, starting with coffee but also expanding to Mozartkugeln (but also of course video games) and more.
