Crossover Cover: Uncertain Logic
The immortal Flint, now going by the name Willem Paul Abramson, works on a neural computer, based on what his mentor in cybernetics called “bionic plasma,” though “Abramson” prefers the term “bioneural gel.” Flint’s mentor in cybernetics is Dr. Emil Vaslovik from Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s TV movie The Questor Tapes. Flint used the identity of A.I. expert Dr. Emil Vaslovik in Jeffrey Lang’s Star Trek: The Next Generation novel Immortal Coil, implying he may have met the 20th century android and cyberneticist.
