Stardate 60728.4, Trekkies leave Mom’s basement for the day

Captain’s log, Stardate 60728.4 (that’s September 23, 2006, at 10:00 AM in terrestrial time, you puny Earthling): A bunch of Trekkies descended on the Morris County Library to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek, bringing their poor hygiene and ridiculous costumes with them.

William Shatner said it best: Get a life.

You know … move out of your mother’s basement. Stop wearing those goofy Lycra jumpsuits. Stop reaching out at your friends gasping “Khan …” The phrase “First Contact” should describe that epic moment when, some day, you might get laid–not the regular re-enactment of your friend wearing Latex pointy ears pretending to be a Vulcan as you “test warp technology.”

Thank you. This has been a public service announcement.

(Here’s an article in the Daily Record by Rob Seman about the event.)



  1. I’m looking forward to JJ Abrams reigniting the passion that once was Trek.
    \\//_ Live long, and prosper.
