We watched another episode, entitled "Devil in the Dark." Again, I was in hysterics. Captain Kirk ended each transmission into his prehistoric handspring phone with "Kirk out." The special effects reminded me of home movies I made with my sister when we were children. And yet, despite the goofiness of it all, I was still sucked in by the stories.
I found myself wanting to know more about the characters. There was so much to learn; everyone in the room felt the need to give me a complete background of each character when he or she appeared on the set. I wanted to watch every single episode, from the first one aired to the most recent version (I think it's Deep Space something). I convinced Renee to leave her boxed set of the first season so I could watch each of them at my leisure. And I will.
Diva's Log Supplemental: After supervising my introduction to their beloved Enterprise, the Trekkies have left me alone with my thoughts. I am excited to have "discovered" this show; I sense there is still much I can learn from this Captain Kirk. (Unnecessary pause for dramatic effect.) The experience has taught me not to judge a Trekkie by her uniform. Speaking of which, I should probably begin work on my uniform, for I must embark upon my own exploration. There are so many planets to explore, and I am only one woman. It is time for me to begin my journey, and I will do so by entering into orbit around Animal Planet, where I am bound to find something adorable to care about and wish to save. Barb out.
