I hope all is well for all of you and if its not please know that those of us who listen to this podcast have empathy for and care about each other. For example, no one writes more hilarious or rough around the edges emails about dungeons or public facilities than Alan but when the fan art page posted scary post mishap photos of Vaughn's car Alan was immediately tweeting his genuine concern and best wishes Beneath your dark humor lies a nuanced human decency Bricecakes theres no getting around it. And now for my as, per normal, ridiculous email Hi Trek TV Friends, TMP! This was a big deal, but in the aftermath of so much Trek History it's hard to convey the magnitude of this event, NEW STAR TREK!!! You kinda had to be there. So to facilitate that, lets whip around the sun, slap it into reverse and screw... the temporal prime directive. Here now for you all to hear….. these sound from 1979! (Le Freak) "Hey have you guys seen the new Star Trek Movie? Star Trek The Motion Picture! We Saw it togather Oh right, just now in this modern 70's era multiplex, here's what I thought... 'Far out man, that really took my mind off the twin scourges of acne and celibacy.' Wuddja think Dr. Fritz?" "We are so very fortunate to have how once marginalized television show brought to the silver screen" "They don't make movies outa just any dumb ol' TV show." "It's like hey, in the 21st century they'll have movies based on Charlie Angels and The Dukes of Hazzard." "Sarcasm does not become you" "Bite me Mr Locke" Catfightsounds "Omigod, DORKS FIGHTING!" Does this movie confirm Vaughn's aviom " we should have several axioms one of them being that anyone in starfleet not serving on the enterprise is an asshole" Yes it does, here Kirk is an Admiral asshole emeritus to….Decker the son of the crazy sweat soaked commodor from Doomsday Machine. While super symetry in physics may be dying now with each new partical collition in Cern it was alive and well back in the day on the silver screen I could go on, and I do at some legnth and at Salties Amateur Sci Fi Prose Illustrated at Goodwood Bo.com under the Essays tab, but I will, as such a forum affords me to, defer my verbiosity and bid you thanks and adieu here. Marc ( ..also Mr. Locke, Dr. Fritz and our friend Lesa, who, while not a listener or Trekkie was easily the only girl who was nice to us in 1979.)
