    Make sure you check out the second part next week, Russ! While I usually avoid breaking features into several parts (since this is the Internet and there aren't page-count restrictions), this one was so long and covered so many topics that it seemed worth making an exception. I really enjoyed editing Part Two, and I'm just about to start on Part Three today.Good stuff, all of it.

    "WW: No. I'm way more interested in working on my own original stuff. And there's a finite number of time/energy/creative units that I can gather on my "collect resources" turn. I would rather put those into building my own story than into repairing the Wesley Crusher building." Wil, you are *such* a geek… :-)

    • Rick Marshall says:

      Yeah, that was one of those quotes I read and then started chuckling to myself… My girlfriend asked what I was laughing about it, and I had to tell her that she was better off not knowing the jokes I *get* on a daily basis.

    Great interview. I picked up on Wil's blog about a year ago, and it's must reading for me now. ha, "repair the Wesly Crusher building", ha! Doesn't THAT conjure up bizarre images?
