I purchased this bookmark way back in 1991 at a Waldenbooks (remember those?), and I just realized that it has to be the most consistently used item that I have ever owned! Perhaps this, in part, represents my nostalgic love of Star Trek.
I watched the original series while still running around in diapers, and was later ushered into my teen years while watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. Let’s not forget the ritual of my dad, myself, and my dad’s Trekkie friend venturing to see all of the motion pictures (both the good and the bad) in the theater.
While I won’t be going to the premiere midnight showing, I do plan on catching Star Trek: Into Darkness this weekend, and I’m quite excited about it. I enjoyed the 2009 reboot, but I’m even more excited for this installment, especially to see Benedict Cumberbatch play Khan. Unfortunately, my son is several years too young to accompany me this time around, which is okay, because we really should start with the original series and work our way forwards.
And yes, it would be rather unbecoming of me NOT to end this short Trek post with the ever so cliché, yet practically obligatory: “Live long, and prosper.”
