Loving the show. That hiatus nearly killed me, I didn't laugh for weeks.
About 'Plato's stepchildren', I've always liked the line that Kirk gave about coming from a place where appearances don't matter. I remember first seeing that as a boy. Star Trek has such inspiring ideas.
I hope you enjoy the latest issue of the comic! Keep up the good work. I'm really looking forward to you covering the films. Search for Spock will be amazing! I wonder what you'll make of the space coffin (spoiler alert) and the Klingon-strangling giant worms.
