January 27, 2014

Good morning! Yes, it's been a while. I've been busy. Let's see, what's new? My final results are in from the ancestry DNA. It's amazing how the final results are so different from the ones I got earlier. Northern European. Denmark mostly ... more than anything else. YAY! :) Other than that I've been playing Minecraft. Yeah, I know. Big surprise. I pulled an all-nighter last night & am getting tired. I'm going to try to stay awake today & reset my schedule that's been completely upside down, but we'll see. So how are all of you? Good I hope.

A book is a gift you can open again & again.

Admiral Leonard "Bones" McCoy was not initially written into the script for the pilot episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. DeForest Kelley's participation came about when Gene Roddenberry asked him over lunch about doing a cameo, fully expecting the actor to say no. Not only did Kelley agree to reprising the role of Dr. McCoy, he reportedly accepted SAG scale as payment for the appearance, instead of a higher rate more appropriate to his role in the franchise. Kelley's scenes in "Encounter at Farpoint" marked his final TV appearance.

All times are beautiful for those who maintain joy withing them.

Although the crew of the Starship Voyager had some interaction with the Alpha Quadrant early in their journey into the Delta Quadrant, their friends & family did not become aware of their plight until more than 3 years after they went missing. Starfleet had spent over 2 years searching for the crew before giving up hope & officially listing them as lost. 14 months later, the Doctor's program was sent over an alien relay network to make contact &, after a brief adventure, return with a message from home. (Message in a Bottle.)

Always present your front to the world.

Approach your lives as if they were novels, with their own heroes, villains, red herrings, and triumphs.

Come on, it's not like we would have made an ideal couple. A Vulcan & a human? Romeo & Juliet probably stood a better chance. -Tucker, "The Augments"

Discipline yourself and others won’t need to.

Dream as if you'll live forever live as if you'll die today.

... Good words. That's where ideas begin.

Human beings are superhuman.

I am a verb.

I believe in coincidences. Coincidences happen every day. But I don't trust coincidences.

I can't change the laws of physics.

If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it.

I give myself sometimes admirable advice, but I am incapable of taking it.

I'm no writer, but if I were, it seems to me I'd want to poke my head up every once in a while & take a look around ... see what's going on. It's life. You can miss it if you don't open your eyes.

It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to.

Joy is not in things; it is in us.

Keep calm & carry gum.

Make the time to enjoy the simple tings in life.

Missing? The Captain is missing? It seems I've found myself on a voyage of the damned. Very well. Please advise the highest-ranking officer who is not missing to see me at his earliest convenience. -The Doctor, "Time & Again"

Our bodies are our gardens, to which our wills are gardeners … either to have it sterile with idleness or manur’d with industry.

Part of being a Captain is knowing when to smile, make the troops happy. Even when it's the last thing in the world you want to do. Because they're your troops, & you have to take care of them. -Sisco, "Rules of Engagement"


Right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.

Star Trek: Voyager episode "Blink of an Eye" was originally titled "Wink of an Eye," until the production staff realized that was already the title of an episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. Coincidentally, both episodes share a theme of alien visitors in a time-accelerated state boarding the ship to find the crew apparently frozen because they are moving at a much slower rate of speed.

Star Trek: Voyager's 2-hour pilot, "Caretaker," aired on January 16, 1995. Not only did it serve as the premiere for the series, but it also launched the new United Paramount Network (UPN). The fledgling network ran for 11 years before merging with The WB network to form the CW in September 2006. With the final episode of Star Trek: Enterprise airing on May 13, 2005, that made the 2005-6 TV season the only season in UPN's existence in which a Star Trek series did not air on the network.

Step into the light.

That which we call destiny goes forth from within people, not from without into them.

... To boldly go where no man has gone before. -Notto on the dedication plaque of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-A

Today is the day.

We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.

When do any of us do enough?

Whenever a group of people start believing they are better than everyone else, the results are always the same.

You are free to fly.

Your biggest debt is to your talents.

Your voice can change the world.
