Live long and prosper

We are on a Star Trek kick. And when I say Star Trek - I mean Scotty, Kirk, Spock, Sulu, and Checkov.

Recent highlights:

  • Today, Mister Spock said, "Vulcans don't bluff" in response to a challenge from a rogue captain trying to take over the Enterprise in Kirk's absence.

  • The episode before that - as usual, the Enterprise was being pulled towards a planet by a malevolent unknown power, using all power to pull back and avoid being crushed: Captain Kirk told Scotty that he knew the ship better than anyone else - better than even the makers of the ship - but that if he couldn't get them out of that jam, he was fired.

  • In that same episode, Spock was stabbed by a vicious flower, struck by lightning, forced to have an awkward conversation about alien reproduction with the crew, and caused an explosion by simply tossing a rock (from the alien planet's landscape) to the side after examination. Squeeze called it the All Spock Comedy Hour.

It's just....classic.
