The Boy, Kirk

As mentioned before I have an unnatural obsession with all things Star Trek. So imagine my response when I first viewed THIS! I know there are several of you out there, lurking around, saluting the Vulcan peace sign and inwardly saying, "Live long and prosper."

Once, long ago (14 years exactly) I was attending a reading conference in Atlanta. It was most gratifying and I was just taking a break when I saw a Klingon walking into the Hyatt across the street. What? Klingons in Atlanta!???? I skipped the afternoon sessions and ended up registering for the International Science Fiction Conference which just happened to be happening the same time as my reading conference. I learned many things that day. One, that some people really do know Klingon and use it frequently and two, that there are way too many people who know how to speak Klingon. But I also learned that there are many people out there like me, who enjoy James T. Kirk, Spock, Captain Picard and the many other incarnations of this fabulous story.

So until my Harry Potter movie comes out I will anxiously await this movie which will show us how Spock and Kirk met and began a wondrous journey in outer space. Can you hear me say "EEEEP"!!!
