Passing the Torch

Excellent video from Paul “Spockboy” Sibbald on the passing of the Star Trek torch.

Yeah, I'm a Trekkie. I believe that the crew of the Enterprise have passed into iconic status. They are like Sherlock Holmes, Superman, and Robin and his Merry Men. You can bend them and re-shape them. You can have a dozen actors play them, have a dozen writers pen them, move them through time, play them for laughs or tears, but the original image is still fixed in our collective minds. I admit to being somewhat trepidatious about this new movie. But in the end it doesn't really matter.

Star Trek lives.
