Star Trek Continues

Long-time readers know I'm a Tolkien Geek -- but did you also know I'm a Trekker? Have been for years. To the point where the new movie has me ticked off some. Too many explosions, too skimpy on plot, which is exactly what Star Trek isn't.

The people in the episode below, however, have got the spirit exactly right, even if its a little rough around the edges. Then again, the original series had some rough spots, too, so I'm okay with that. To read about their background and what they're working to accomplish, click here. To get up-to-date information about the newest episodes, you can join their Facebook page.

To get a taste, watch the first episode, "Pilgrim of Eternity" below. And if that face looks familiar, you are a Trekker, too! Michael Forrest, Apollo from Who Mourns for Adonis? making a return visit.

Tomorrow this blog will return to its originally scheduled writing workshops. In the meantime, enjoy this look back -- erm, forward.
