DSaadI am searching for the name of a sci-fi book in which people can photosynthesize with their hair, and because of that, the rich cut their own hair and food is very expensive.

Q: Why is Jeffrey hanging out with Tamara?

AdamantWhen the runaways return from the Dark Dimension, many things have changed. Nico's father Robert is in love with and working for Morgan, for instance, and Alex's father Jeffrey is all chummy with Tamara. Of course, the former turns out to be due to an enchantment that Morgan placed on him, but th...

Q: Why did Tandy see what she saw?

AdamantWhen Tandy touches Alex's hand shortly before they return from the Dark Dimension, she sees his hopes, which appear to consist of having the powers of all the other runaways. This makes her reluctant about bringing him back, and causes the others to doubt him briefly. This vision pays off when w...

Q: Short story about the difficulties of alien/human cooperation

undergroundmonorailI think I would have read this a few years ago, but I really have no more specific time frame than that, unfortunately. Honestly, it might even have just been a comment in a writing prompt subreddit or something, but I suppose there's no harm in asking. The story is from the perspective of a memb...

Q: Was Jean-Luc Picard inspired by Hornblower?

Gonçalo Peres 龚燿禄I have found the following in Fandom The Star Trek characters James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard were originally also supposedly modelled after Hornblower by Gene Roddenberry. Nicholas Meyer, director of some of the most well regarded Star Trek films, frequently cites Horatio Hornblower as one of...

Q: No Particular Talent

Vaughn OhlmanThis is either a stand-alone book or (more likely) the first in a series. It involves the main character going through the standard teenage ritual of discovering where their magical 'talent' lay. I think the ritual involves a bowl. As it turns out (surprise surprise to anyone who has read this ki...

Q: Is this a mistake in The Heritage of Shannara?

LarryOn page 97-98 of The Heritage of Shannara by Terry Brooks, Brin encounters Spider Gnomes while "looking for the Sword of Shannara". However, Brin was looking for the Ildatch, the book of black magic. Is there an in-universe explanation for this, or is this a mistake in the writing?

Q: What do we know about the ultimate fate of the Borg?

J. MiniThe overwhelming impression that one gets while watching Star Trek Voyager is that the Borg will win in the Delta Quadrant. With only a handful of exceptions, that are vastly superior to everything else that we see there. But what do we actually know about their ultimate fate? All that I can thin...

Q: Why did Paxton create the hybrid baby?

GendoIkariIn the final episodes of Enterprise, we discover that John Paxton used DNA from Tucker and T'Pol to create a half-human half-Vulcan baby. It is unclear to me from the episodes why he actually did this. Is a clear explanation ever given? He does reveal the baby to the world in his big speech; show...

Q: Thin-tentacle alien enwrapping its victims

elmordiegoI saw it in the 90s. Could have been a 70s-90s sci-fi horror movie or an episode of a series. The story played out on either a space ship or in some sort of a planet base. I remember only the tentacles, not sure if the rest of the alien was depicted. However the tentacles were multiple, very fast...

Book SearcherThe book is about a part-magical child who was born again into a human family. He has only one line on his palm, unlike other humans and doesn't know who is magical mother was. I believe it's a middle-grade chapter book. I'm dying to remember the title if anyone recognizes this description!

@SmokeDetector false alarm
@AncientSwordRage Registered answer as false positive.

Q: Does a curse need to hit a person in order for it to work?

MBEllisAt first glance, I would think that the curse needs to hit a person for it to work. We see plenty of people dodge spells. Crabbe wheeled around and screamed, "Avada Kedavra!" again. Ron leapt out of sight to avoid the jet of green light. However, Neville manages to unintentionally disarm 2 peop...

Q: Over how long a period of time does Enchanted take place?

TheAshOver how long a period of time does Enchanted (2007) take place? Her transformation from 'lovey dovey' princess to normal member of society took way too quick for me, as it seemed to be in only a number of days. However, its possible the movie took place over a longer period of time (we don't kno...

Q: Movie identification: man bending a spoon with mind power

user122973I remember watching an old movie (or TV series) with a scene which a man held a spoon with one hand and bent it with his mind. A few other points I am not sure if I remember correctly: the man was after some police training? the man had the power due to nuclear radiation? It's definitely not Th...

Q: Do "ordinary" animals exist in the world of "His Dark Materials"?

Anthony XIn Lyra's home world in both the "His Dark Materials" HBO series and the Golden Compass 2007 movie, aside from daemons in animal form, we only see bears which can talk and have human-like minds and personalities. We don't, so far as I can tell, see any "ordinary" animals such as exist in our worl...

Q: TV show that involves teens/kids going to another world

SoySauceI remember from the show that the kids are live actors that are transported into another world where they use CGI for that side, or at least I think it is CGI. It is not Code Lyoko or reboot: the guardian, but it is like those shows. Another thing I remember from the show is a red wheel on a pipe...
