July 15, 2002: Kepler: Skip, the Russians are proposing a mission to Mars by 2015. Can we do that, too? Skip: How much will it cost, Dude? Kepler: Uh... about $20 billion. Skip: Hmmm... let me check my couch cushions for change! Kepler: Yes! July 17, 2002: Will: Skip's fronting you the money to go to Mars? Kepler: Yep! And according to my calculations, we should be ready to lift off in 12 years? Will: Hmm... I think my schedule's all full, then. Kepler: I'll be in my late 20s! I'll be too old to go! July 19, 2002: Mitch: It takes 12 years to plan a Mars mission? Kepler: Plan it, design a ship, build a ship, train a crew... unfortunately, yes. Mitch: Couldn't we just beam people up? Kepler: Sure. I'll just design an "Enterprise" class starship. Mitch: Cool! I call first dibs on the holodeck! Kepler: Seriously... how would anyone ever get anything done with a holodeck onboard?
