Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is my favourite Star Trek series, and my second favourite TV series overall, right after Babylon 5. I’ve been rewatching the series every two or three years for the last couple of decades or so, and I am due for another round just about now. While some of the other older Star Trek series have been re-released in HD quality on Bluray, notably, Deep Space Nine and Voyager have not.

I’m a huge Science-Fiction fan, which I think anyone who knows me is very well aware of. I enjoy most Sci-Fi to some extent, and my two favourite TV series of all time are Babylon 5 and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In case you were wondering … yes, Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks) is my favourite Star Trek captain. Now, I’m not a dedicated Trekkie in that I get totally absorbed by the francise.

I write fiction as a hobby, which means I don’t have a lot of time for it aside from work and other activities. Still, it’s a nice creative outlet that I enjoy a great deal when I do find the time. Actually, I spend quite a bit of time thinking about the stories I’m working on even when I’m not writing. In particular, I enjoy the world building aspect of it.

Is it just me getting a bit tired of all the post-apocalyptic TV series and movies? Sure, it’s a genre on its own, and there has always been a steady stream of them. I don’t have a problem with that. I just felt that I reached saturation level for my own part with “The Last of Us” that started airing earlier this year. It’s not that I don’t like the genre.

Already before I set up this website using Hugo, I wanted to integrate Mastodon comments into the posts. I had already come across this implementation by Carl Schwan before, and it seems to work really well. Integrating it was fairly straightforward, and is already explained in his post. I modified it a bit to remove the dialog box and include the core of those instructions in the comment section preamble. Aside from that, I was happy with the original setup as a starting point.
