I have been a fan of Star Trek for most of my life. I remember seeing The Original Series when it was first broadcast, and many times in syndication. Then I remember The Animated Series, and next the feature films. Probably The Next Generation impacted me the most, with Patrick Stewart in the role of Captain Picard. Amazing! The writers could barely keep up with advances in technology in the real world, let alone on the sets of TNG. (Was that a PADD, or an Apple iPad I liked so much…science fiction becomes reality even more quickly these days!) This photo (Added by François Fender to WebTopaze.com) came to me from a Facebook friend today. What a great ensemble of characters has been assembled over the years in each of the Star Trek series and films. Looking forward to great new ideas in the future as well. (It took me a while to adjust to the changes of the latest film, but Ken Ray of Mac OS Ken helped me see that it could mean a whole new life for the Star Trek franchise.) Here’s to many more years of great science fiction adventures. Where will it all end up? Time will tell, or Tim will tell you later.
