\"A deadline has a wonderful way of focusing the mind.\" - Professor Moriarty, Ship in a Bottle, Star Trek: The Next Generation



Übersetzt: \"Eine Deadline (i.e. Druckschluss) bietet die wunderbare Gelegenheit, seine Gedanken auf das Wesentliche zu konzentrieren.\"



Aus: daily-newsletter@linux05.wekanet-team.de



Professor Moriarty ist eine Romanfigur aus den Sherlock-Holmes-Romanen von Arthur Conan Doyle. In der erwähnten Episode von Star Trek: The Next Generation erwacht dieser klassische Gegner des berühmten Detektivs als Holodeck-Figur zu Bewusstsein und bedroht die Enterprise mit der Forderung, Freiheit vom Holodeck zu bekommen, mit einem Ultimatum.
