We were planning to start watching some Star Trek.
Lad: Do they have laser guns?
Me: Let me think. Yes, they do have laser guns of some sort. Blasters, I think they call them. And they’ve got communicator devices, and teleportation. Wait, they called them phasers.
Lad: Are they going to war with the aliens then? Did they go out to kill them?
Me: No, they go in peace. They want to explore and make peace with all alien species.
Lad: So why did they take their guns?
Me: For self defence, I suppose. Just in case they get attacked.
Lad: But the aliens won’t want to make peace with them if they take their laser guns. They’ll just get scared, and then they’ll get their laser guns, and *pew pew pew*
