Star Trek The Next Generation – three words: Jean Luc Pickard. I can listen to him speak all day – classic voice. Special effects and acting improved greatly from the classic version, but hey it’s still Star Trek.
Star Trek Deep Space Nine – interesting new characters. I watched it for a while but it wasn’t the same.
Star Trek Voyager – cool female captain who takes herself too seriously. Still it feels like classic Star Trek. It’s enjoyable to watch.
Why the fascination with Star Trek? Today I was thinking about some of the cool gadgets of Star Trek. Who wouldn’t want to create a force field around their vehicles (especially if their teenagers are driving)? Why spend money going on a vacation? Instead visit the Holodeck and be anywhere you want to be.
My favorite is the transporter. Tom left on a business trip today and he’ll be gone until Sunday. When he travels, I wish there was a transporter that he can leave in the morning, do his business, then come home to me at night.
I want a transporter in my future – don’t you? I mean we have the flip phone. It’s the next logical step in technology. Okay, I know I’m stretching that a bit, but I’m missing him.
I’m counting the days honey.
