It's not just the aliens, strange planets, and cool retro-future tech. The Enterprise is the Federation's flagship because Kirk, McCoy, and Spock bring action, emotion, and logic together. We need this same balance to take Fedora where no distro has gone before. Lofty goals alone don't get things done. And action without direction — well, you know what happens to redshirts. We need a Spock-like way to tie vision to effort, and this talk will provide an approach we can all use. There may also be tribbles.
