Hi trekTV Friends,
Are you in Melbourne now? Used to be Perth right? But I guess the point is...Stage 4 quarantine, wow. If you were in Oregon you'd be free to live as recklessly as you like, or play it safe and hope to noy catch it from those who don't.
Hey, here's a Trek anecdote, more catholic in nature, Or TOSic maybe and about fear.
The six year old boy in my local pandemic bubble was at my apartment recently, laughing historically at something on my wall. The wall is festooned generously with the sort of cultural mementos enjoyed by the autistic man whom I care fore professionally. One of the things this man enjoys besides high brow music and dictionaries is Star Trek. What was my six year old quasi-stepson laughing his ass off at? There were no jokes tacked to the sheetrock, but a TOS wall calendar was, and the screen cap from 'Arena' which had been chosen by the calenderists to represent the month of August featured The Gorn. The Gorn was scary when I was six. To be fair though, it's ben hilarious for a long time.
I think The Borg need more time, though. Sorry, drones. Not funny yet. Still scary AF Alcumberrie!
Best of Both Worlds, the two parter which straddles the hair metal and grunge eras, connecting the two like a rocking' scifi issued skin tissue. This is kind of the pivotal TNG episode. cinematic, novelistic nearly literate.
More of a trilogy than a couplet with the episode Family, functioning as a calming coda to all that Borg drama. But of course when I first saw this cliff hanger...Arrg I hate cliff hangers... Agony. Wrath of Khan all over again.
Their will be a sound clip from "In Between The Lions" in there, you lucky people
Best part? Patty Stu says "Futile" not Feudal as 7 out of 9 Borg's surveyed would say later.
