I hadn’t realized it yesterday (I wasn’t realizing a lot yesterday, for some reason) but September 08 — yesterday — was the forty second anniversary of the original Star Trek television series. Now, since I’m only forty I obviously wasn’t around when the first episode — The Man Trap — of Star Trek aired. But, I do however remember Star Trek being a part of my life for as far back as I can remember.
But curiously, rather than realizing that the Yankees/Angels game was on I spent the evening watching Star Trek: The Next Generation — the very last episode of that series to be exact, All Good Things… (which aired on May 29, 1994).
And, now I “patiently” await for May 8, 2009 — only a mere 240 days — for the premiere of the new Star Trek movie.
