TREK-A-DAY

Star Trek: the nerd’s first and occasionally final frontier.  These are the voyages of a long time Trekkie, who has never actually seen most of the series.  His ongoing mission: to watch new episodes, seek out new jokes, and new connections, by boldly going where many-a-nerd have gone before:

I am going to watch one episode of Star Trek a day, and report on the results.  Big episodes get big posts; regular episodes get tweets.  The wackier, the tweetier.

Feel free to play along yourself!

Readers…set phasers to awesome.
