Looks like a movie prop. Are these tubes with the yellow warning signs on the white sheets with the orange title weapons? These sheets look like the ones we hanged on lasers, because nobody believed us when we said "These cuts steel like its warm butter".

Had a bit of an issue with a portable Western Digital hard drive, specifically the one where I store my photo archive. It's not an SSD, and it's now 10 years old. As far as usage goes, it's very rarely been plugged in, only to upload or retrieve some photos from time to time. However, I use a very similar model, that's not 7 or 8 years old as well, as external storage on the Xbox, and that thing has been going for years without any issues, experiencing quite intensive usage.

Thing is, I now plugged it in, only to find some photo folders empty, and a few others with weird upload dates, like 2030. Unless there are hard drive-eating gremlins in that drawer, nobody tampered with it, so it's probably simply loss of data over time. Besides immediately copying the remaining stuff to a new drive, any advice for data recovery?

Just realized, next year I am going to be at the same age as Günter Wendt in that picture.

Star Trek: Prodigy asks the question: "What does happen when you hand Nickelodeon a Star Trek license?"

The answer seems to be something along the lines of "The writers play a Space Aces campaign and pass on the results with some minor editing and some more dialog written in".

It has a very similar energy with the on-the-spot one-offs using said system I run with my son and a friend of his when he's with us on vacation. I'm... kind of on board with that, but I also kind of think professional writers should be expected to deliver more logical plots than a couple of kids come up with by creatively interpreting some dice prompts...

Then I probably misinterpreted something in one of your past posts somewhere...

Not your fault. Maybe I am just an minor NPC here and my template was reused in another game.
