Yeah, I have nothing really to blog about. I just want to wish everyone a happy Star Trek day. The new movie is out today and soon Trekkers everywhere will be introduced to the wonder that is Benedict Cumberbatch. Seriously, if you haven’t watched BBC’s Sherlock, do it. Such an amazing modernization of the Arthur Conan Doyle stories.
My love of Star Trek knows almost no limits. I’ve always been sad that the amazing Star Trek book titled Q-in-Law never got made into a movie. I can’t believe Q never made it into one of the movies. He was seriously one of the best characters ever created. The best episodes of TNG were one of three: any episodes dealing with time travel, any involving the Borg, and any with Q. (The Lwaxana were awesome, too, which is why I’m so sad Q-in-Law never became a film.)
Star Trek broke barriers and stereotypes. It’s a scrappy show that keeps kicking and helped spawn a generation of nerds. Hand-in-hand with Star Wars, nerd-dom hasn’t been the sam since it came around. So long as there are nerds, the characters and stories spawned by one man’s imagination will live long and prosper indeed.
