So last night we watched an obligatory episode from the Gray Lady of sci-fi television. Live long and prosper and all. As I’ve said many times, I’m not much of a sci-fi/fantasy fan. I don’t hate it. Every now and then I’ll read or watch this or that. I liked Star Wars, but most sci-fi fans I know say that’s sci-fi light.
Anyway, my wife, our math and science contributor to the family, grew up with Star Trek. When she got a promotion, we bought her the Anniversary pack with the entire original series on DVD. Since our boys all like some level of fantasy and sci-fi, we kicked back, grabbed a drink, and watched William Shatner do battle with his darker side. I’ll admit, it brought back thoughts of olden times, even if I didn’t watch the show that much.
Happy birthday gang, and thanks for the memories.
