Seconded. I got rid of most of my Trek novels years ago, but the two Ford novels were among the keepers.

Once you get back the double features, you've mentioned the possibility of watching Star Trek: TAS. Would you consider watching the 11-episode fan-film series Star Trek Continues as a double feature at some point? And possibly other Trek fan films as well?

I'm interested in hearing everyone's answers to that one. Mine are (1) a prequel series set on Pike's Enterprise (DIS) gung fgvpxf sne zber pybfryl gb pnaba guna Qvfpbirel qbrf, and (2) a show set thirty years after Voyager, in which interstellar civilization is in a state of collapse due to the delay in addressing/solving the problems of warp drive raised in "Forces of Nature."

I'd also be interested in doing any of several science fiction series set on Earth or Mars in the 20th or 21st centuries, that would exist within the Star Trek timeline -- but I wouldn't brand them as Star Trek shows.

It's true. If I didn't love this show, I wouldn't nitpick it to death. I want it to be better than it is. I want it to be the best damn show on television. And you don't get to "best damn show" if you aren't paying attention to every aspect of the show. Because whatever you think is unimportant, someone out there cares about.

Wow. I love that one. And nice touch with the "Inner Light" music.

I tried the first episode of The Orville and gave up on it immediately. Didn't see any point to it beyond "Seth McFarlane really loves Star Trek." Then I heard good things from multiple people about later episodes, so I gave it another shot. And was surprised by how much I'm enjoying it now.

Remember "Tapestry", where Picard discovered his alternate life was an astrophysicist nowhere near command of anything? He thought it was horrible and would rather die than have that life. But that would be my dream job on the Enterprise.

For captain: Sisko, Picard, Kirk, Janeway, Archer. Unless I'm likely to be in a lot of battles, in which case I'll swap Kirk and Sisko's positions on the list.

For a position: science officer, not in the chain of command.

Not a question. I ran across this video a couple days ago. Having nit-picked my way through five series and ten movies, plus the reboot films, I just wanted to share it.
