Excuse Me While I Turn Down the Awesome


Courtesy of my friend Geoff. This is what being the commander of a starship is supposed to be like. And some days I feel this good.

It's also why, even though The Next Generation ultimately ended up being a wiser and better written show, and the boots, highwater pants, and mini-skirts are about as dated a futuristic look as you could conceive of today, if I had a chance to play a Star Trek rpg (and I own two of them, by Last Unicorn Games and Decipher, both out of print), I would still totally go Old School Trek. For the awesome.

Miniskirt Trek FTW!

PS: You need to put up the "Expendability" poster next time you do a multiple-book review where you found at least one lacking.

And, in a perfect world, the heavens would open and all of us would be able to hear Shat deliver that caption in a dramatic reading.

Nice idea on the book reviews.

I can hear Shatner's voice in my head already.

I think he understands me.

I think he probably does. Be careful, though -- he's a rock-it man.
