Stardate: 08.22.2011 Mission: Blogfest
CYBERSPACE, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the blog PK HREZO. It's indefinite mission: to explore strange new blogs, to seek out new followers and new nifty websites, to boldly go where no blogger has gone before ......
*insert Star Trek theme song here*
Welcome to the fun filled Star Trek blogfest hosted by Ellie Garrett. Check out my post on my fave characters and why I love the show, then turn on your warp speed and head over to Ellie's blog and check out all the entries!
Okay, so when I was a kid my parents used to have Star Trek marathons--the original series with Captain Kirk and Spock. When a new Star Trek film would come out, we'd pack up the family for the event. I think I saw every one of the films at the theatres. I remember when Spock gave his life and then regenerated on Genesis. That was huge... I never forgot seeing that for the first time.
Then when I was on my own in college, I used to watch The New Generation reruns every night before bed. I was so addicted ... I've seen every single one of them, but since it's been awhile, I don't exactly remember any episodes in particular that stood out for me. Of course I had a total crush on Jean-Luc Picard. And I loved the character Q.
Not sure who I'd pick to fly my starship between Captain Kirk or Captian Picard. Hey, I thought Captain Janeway from Voyager was pretty darn good too. (Yay for chick captains!)
Aside from the captains, I'd say my fave characters were:
Deanna Troi (loved she was an empath)
Spock and Sarek (loved Spock was half human and his relationship with his father)
Bones (his contrast to spock and the conflict there)
Worf (such an animal! Love it!)
the Borg queen (loved the idea of the borg as a collective with one queen. awesome!)
I love all the films, but really loved the idea of the nexxus in Generations. Plus when Captain Kirk showed up it was outta sight dynamite! Oh and the newest film rocked!! Can't wait for the next one!
I've been to Star Trek festivals that are a ton of fun, and always makes me understand what the term "die hard fan" means. LOL. I love the stories, have read a few of the books, but I'm not partial to Star Trek over Star Wars. A lot of fans think we have to decide which. I say, I can love both. And I'm sticking to it. :D
Thanks so much for stopping by! Here's a pic of Little PK (future Trekkie) with my trusty telecom I keep on my desk. You know, for those emergency beam ups. ;)
All kinds of goodies on the Star Trek website here. And don't forget to visit Ellie's blog at Star Trek HDQ!
So tell me, do you like both Star Trek AND Star Wars? Or do you only pledge your allegiance to one? Do you have a fave character or episode/film of Star Trek?
As always, live long and prosper ....
