    Humans start with the world as it is and try to make it different. And that’s what makes them interesting. In all these worlds we are rushing over, the most precious thing that we can find is another human being. That’s what I think.
    Note: the long earth has been an excellent book

    He had some theoretical grasp of how it could generate a subspace manifold that operated as a bijective map between two domains of normal spacetime, rendering them effectively isomorphic so that a particle occupying one domain would simultaneously occupy the other, even without any spatial fold or wormhole connecting them. But the specifics of the mechanism the drive employed, the way it directed energy to achieve the effect, remained beyond him.

    The other team member was a square-jawed fellow whom Kirk introduced as Lieutenant Ted Erikson, the ship’s historian. He was attired in a red uniform, like other starship historians Grey had met; for whatever reason, the Starfleet bureaucracy classified historians under operations rather than sciences.

    “To keep the variables consistent, we intend to re-create the Black Star slingshot and send you back to approximately the same place and time as before, Earth in the nineteen-sixties. Your deflectors can be adjusted to block radar scans, and a wide orbit with running lights doused should minimize the risk of visual observation.
    Note: yeah turn the running lights off no one will ever see the sun reflecting off the enterprise

    Delgado sensed that there was something deeper beneath Kirk’s words, that he’d gotten to know Edith Keeler rather more closely than Spock’s account had indicated.

    If I authorize the resources and personnel, and order the Enterprise moved to the top of the priority list, you’ll have her back to fighting trim within two weeks at most. And believe me, I can get that authorization with a single communication.” There was no disbelief in Kirk’s eyes; he knew how well-connected Delgado was. “All I ask in exchange is that you allow me and my team to study your ship and its engines and work with your science and engineering teams to learn what we can about how your journey through time was achieved. All right?” Kirk looked reassured, even pleased. “When...
