Who is the best captain in Star Trek?
This definitely goes to Jean-Luc Picard, as portrayed by Patrick Stewart. I think what makes Picard such a great captain in particular is the personal responsibility he feels for the safety of everybody on board his ship, whether they’re a member of the crew or family. Throughout Star Trek: The Next Generation, Captain Picard displayed a deep camaraderie for those who served under him, despite his outward demeanor usually being professional and stern. It’s this balance that I feel not only defined him as a captain, but showcased what made him the best captain.
What does the mentioned dog in the book Slaughterhouse-Five symbolize?
The dog that the one creep, Lazarro, feeds the watch springs to out of spite? I would say it represents the average soldier on either side, who was offered a chance at patriotism and glory by enlisting (the delicious steak) but discovered that the war was confusion, cruelty, and destruction on an unimaginable scale (the sharp little metal pieces). So the average soldier in the war is, like the poor dog, writhing in pain and misery, not sure why it is happening or who to blame. The dog and the soldier are both aware, however, that they were offered a false bill of sale when they took the hamburger/signed up.
What is a summary of The Man Who Knew Too Much by Alexander Baron?
The story is about a man named private Quelch who likes to show off his knowledge. Narrator and his friends also gave him nickname 'professor' due to his lanky body and bespectacled looks. Although private Quelch meant to acquire a stripe and to get commission. He works hard for his ambition but due to his habit of interrupting senior officers and showing off his knowledge he was nominated for permanent cookhouse duties by Corporal Turnbull. Corporal Turnbull was a young and smart soldier who had returned from Dunkirk. He was a man not to be trifled with. Narrator and his fellow soldiers told each other that they could hammer nails into him without him noticing it. There are also many incidents in the story, when private Quelch outshone his fellow soldiers (including narrator) on aircraft recognition, when professor interrupted the sergeant and he asking questions to professor in hope of revenge. The story ends with a light note with private Quelch lecturing his fellow soldiers on how to cut potato without its vitamin values being wasted.
Asked in Science Fiction, Space Aliens
How do alien birth pods grow?
Alien birthpods do not 'grow', they are an alien pod with a pregnant alien Mum in it, and sometimes 2 other babies (usually twins), and you help the alien give birth by gently squeezing her head or body ( depending if it comes out of the back or the head - you will know by the huge hole which opens up that the baby will pop out of) and gently pulling it out if it does not pop out. Sometimes it is embedded in the aliens head, so you might have to it off of the head. I hope this helped.

Where did science fiction writing start?
Science Fiction stories existed long before the term 'Science Fiction' was invented or even Science for that matter. Many authors have been credited with the distinction of being the father of science fiction including Lucian of Samosata (120AD). It can be argued however that the legends of Daedalus are a form of gadgetry science fiction which would push the start of SF all the way back into the Bronze age.

Verne does not say for certain.

It does not say whether his family was killed or they were separated.
