Poezie pentru fanii Star Trek

Am redescoperit astăzi, la o vinzionare StarTrek, poezia scrisă de androidul Data pentru pisica lui, Spot. Dacă ştiţi personajele, veţi râde cu lacrimi; dacă nu, poate vă spune ceva ideea unui robot care vrea să devină uman prin artă şi reuşeşte să scrie un poem perfect ca tehnică, dar la fel de artistic ca planşa cu anatomia mâţei (dar cel puţin rimează):

Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature;
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your sub-vocal oscillations,
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents,
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

Oh Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array;
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

Poezia a fost scrisă, de fapt, de Clay Dale, specialist în efecte vizuale din echipa Star Trek.
