In this series we will explore the question: WAWOHA? As you may well know, we are out here in the void of space on a five year mission. During mission training, not only did we have to memorize the mission statement, we also were taught to always remember the anagram: WAWOHA? (rhymes with aloha and yes, it can be used as a greeting and/or closing) meaning "Why Are We Out Here Anyway?" Anytime you are unsure of your actions, anytime you need to make a difficult decision, anytime you have to stop yourself from throttling some annoying alien species, you should ask yourself WAWOHA?
Of course sometimes the answer to the question is difficult to remember. The answer is, of course, the mission statement: "Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before." But the answer to WAWOHA? goes beyond that. We are on a mission of peace, a humanitarian mission of love and understanding. We are a simple research vessel; a heavily armed, militarized, research vessel and we come in peace! But I digress.
So, Let's look at one answer to WAWOHA?, we are here to discover and catalog new species. Now, the Vulcans have the core philosophy of IDIC, Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations as a explanation of how they view the wonders of the universe. This can be seen from the tiniest subspace particles to the biggest, most elaborate bouffants. To illustrate IDIC, take, for example, the humble unicorn. On earth, the unicorn is indeed a mythical beast. However, in space we have discovered numerous unicorn species. (Why the planet Unicus III is home to over one hundred different types!) So, WAWOHA? Why are we out here anyway? Too find new species of unicorns. That certainly is one answer.
These pictures answer the question WAWOHA? Why are we out here anyway? It is for the last unicorn. It is for the next unicorn we will find. It is, indeed, for all the unicorn potential of the blessed universe.
