Knittin' Crap: Starfleet March 2015

This month, we ran into that reprobate Harcourt Fenton Mudd, who came offering a deal...

Science: Analyze Harry’s potion and present its molecular structure as either a lace or cable pattern (lace could represent a crystalline structure, where cables would represent a more fibrous structure; similar to the difference between metals and plastics or inorganic and organic compounds).A quark-level analysis of Mudd’s compound reveals some interesting relationships between the atoms. I’ve represented the shared electron orbits with this model of the structure’s planar axis.
Tactical: Craft something to capture Harry if the evidence is incriminating.Harcourt Fenton Mudd has frequently shown himself to be a slippery, unethical, unprincipled character. We need to be vigilant and ready for his tricks. These newly engineered restraints are very small when not in use, but they can be deployed with speed, stretching to several times their resting state in order entrap the soon-to-be prisoner. Different configurations can apply different forces or biophysical effects, like rigidity, elastic restraint, or a sedating effect. We’re not letting him get away this time!
