Studying Ancient Geek

Hi, I’m Paul and I’m a Trekkie.

(CHORUS: “Hi, Paul.”)

I first tried Star Trek in third grade when my best friend Steve Mansfield told me all about it. Thanks again, Steve, wherever you are.

This was when we were living in Los Alamos. It used to be on Saturdays at 10:30 on KOB Channel 4. One night after going to bed I heard someone on the TV downstairs say “Captain Kirk” and “Mister Spock” so I got up to look. The first scene I ever saw was the one where Spock was trying to brain Kirk with a fish tank. My brother Mike let me stay up to watch the rest and I was hooked. Thanks again, Mike, wherever you are.

Anyway, over the years I’ve kept a running log of comments about the Star Trek movies. I started in college and for the sake of tradition I have kept it up ever since. And as part of my recovery process I’ve decided to put it out on the Internet.

I know what you’re thinking: “just what the world needs, another web page of Star Trek reviews.”

Well, humor me. I like to think that mine is a little different because I require readers to ensure that all tongue is planted firmly in cheek before proceeding.
