After hearing Nicki Minaj's ubiquitous hit "Starships" for about the umpteenth time today, I couldn't help but get the phrase "Starships were meant to fly" in my head for the latter part of my afternoon. It made me think: Starships might be meant to fly, but is that all they can do?

Here are ten other things that starships are meant to do.

Starships were meant…

To cry

To dry

To sigh

To pry

To comply

To imply

To serve chai

To deny

To Spotify

To enjoy tea with Jasmine Guy

Did I really just post this?
