Live Long and Prosper
For all the Trekkies among us, young and old, still closeted, or out and proudly displaying their Vulcan Ears at Comic-Con, today is the 48th anniversary of the debut of the original Star Trek series. For all you Spock, Kirk and Bones lovers out there, and for those of us who’ve grudgingly had to live with them at some point in our lives, take a moment today to marvel at the little show that has gone to Deep Space, on a Voyage and influenced the Next Generation, has starred in a continuingly successful movie franchise and a cartoon, yet never reached its final frontier. Along the way it given countless fans and even us grudging trek-adjacent viewers so much as far as pop culture is concerned. Star Trek has woven itself into our very psyche, vocabulary (sometimes in Klingon), and consciousness. Heavy McWee is our recipe for today, in honor of Scotty who was always “giving her I’ve got, Captain” , and the rest of the Enterprise crew for showing us that though the universe is infinite, and we’re all connected on some level, usually the ‘bridge’, or maybe on Facebook. Oh myyy.
