We're gonna travel faster than light, so do up your overcoat tight

So, a little discovery about the red panda kigurumi which bunny_hugger gave me for Christmas. Besides being amazingly comfortable, and besides making easy that curious state where all my shirts and pants are laundered at the same time, it looks good. More, if I pull the hood back, it looks stunningly like the Deep Space Nine-era Star Fleet uniform. I don't have a particular application for this resemblance yet, but, I will keep it in mind, and I do have a 90's Star Fleet communicator badge around here somewhere. I think.

Trivia: In 1821 the government of the Netherlands sold for scrap paper what remained of the archives of the Dutch East and West India Companies for the years up to 1700, including about 80,000 pounds of records of the settlement of New Amsterdam and the New Netherlands.
