Lately we’ve been going back over old episodes of Star Trek: TNG on Netflix. It’s been fun, and amusing. I remember watching the show when it was on originally. Now, looking back across the years, it seems a bit dated and the writing seems a bit … silly. “Did they really get away with that?” Darc will ask.
I noticed that it was really like a night-time soap opera. I never caught that at the time – perhaps because I was such a big fan.
And to think I almost missed that train! LOL For the first few episodes, I dug in my heels and refused to watch, thinking myself a TOS purist. Kirk and Spock or bust! Eventually, Picard and crew grew on me.
Don’t think I’d ever go to one of those Star Trek conventions though. I might pull an “evil Kirk” routine like Bill Shatner did on Saturday Night Live. William Shatner SNL star trek convention — chancewave.com
What about you? Would you ever go to a convention like that?
Live long and prosper!
