Geode on a cake stand would make a lovely lamp, I bet you can buy one at Spencer's. But the acrobat under a rug is genius! I've often heard of fire being referred to as alive. And plants are alive. Why was there so much time spent even considering whether it could be alive and so much shock that it might be. Isn't that the whole mission statement - to seek out new life? Shouldn't it be alive until proven not, rather than the other way around?

I'm always amazed at how often Trek fans are asked to find things amazing, even though we've seen them before many many times before in Star Trek. Like Data - wow, he's an incredible android!
