- That time the thing happened

Yeah, yeah, I'll put a quarter in the "referenced Star Trek" jar, even if I did avoid mentioning it directly (a holographic simulation of Professor Moriarty from the Sherlock Holmes stories achieved sentience and became an antagonist on Star Trek: The Next Generation, because of course he did).

To be clear, though, it's not like "oh no the simulation or game or work place etiquette VR experience or etc. has gone dangerously rogue" trope is unique. I didn't HAVE to bring up anything specific to Star Trek.

I mean, I did, because of course I did, but I didn't HAVE to.

Contrivance WOO!

There are several not annoyingly contrived reasons for Jay to not be comfortable telling Susan anything, such as future goals, and just general fear of Susan's response, but of course I chose to focus on potentially annoying and contrived logic that's sort of technical.

I do this because I am a monster.
