Move over Jesus, Star Trek is on!


Star Trek has pretty much been the model that I have always lived my life by. At times I have looked to other places for answers, like self help groups, cults and religion, but ultimately Star Trek has always had the answers for me.

Take my job for instance: I work in office with a handful of people, I sit in front of a computer that makes all sorts of bizarre sounds and I don't even look up from the computer when I talk to the four other guys that work in the office with me. I work for a very conservative company that has a pretty strict dress code. We all where black shoes, khakis, and different color polo shirts. Did I mention that I only work with four other guys inside an office that can double as a bomb shelter if need be? Obviously, I make it a point to wear black pants and a green or yellow shirt as often as possible, but the reason why is our little secret.

Way before I started working for my current employer, I've always been smart enough to surround myself with people that I can trust with my life and that are smarter then me in some ways. Sometimes I don't exactly see the world the way that other people see it, so it's always good to have friends like Willsix or the Grumbler around, so I can say things like, "What the fuck does that mean"? Anytime that I've ever needed to be pulled back from the Abyss (and I've needed to be pulled back more than once) it's the same handful of people saving Captain Corky from the great void. I'd like to think that I've been there for them as well.

I don't think it's really necessary to point out all the multi-cultural women that I've been with. No need to boast! Besides, my wife thinks that I was a virgin who lived in his parents basement all my life before we met. Let's keep it that way, shall we?

With all that said, I don't think you could exactly classify me as a Trekkie. I would agree that Star Trek and television have had a very positive influence in shaping my future, my destiny and my brain pattern, but I don't think you could call me Trekkie, unless Trekkies are extremely good looking, kick ass and are cool. If that's the case, then by all mean call me a Trekkie.

Tomorrows post: The first time I sought out a new civilization, fucked a green haired woman, and corrected the social imbalance in that civilization's society, all with in an hour, and in Technicolor.

PS I added some new links to the blog and have a few more that I need to add.

You left out the part where you used your powers of logic and deduction to convince an evil supercomputer to self-destruct. I love it when you do that!

Blame trhe media for their portrayl of trekkies, I know a few trekkies who are perfectly normal- well as normal as me anyway.

My Ex used to use any flip object he could lay his hands on as a communicator and would take great delight in saying "Beam me up Scotty" This was fine an all unless we were in the middle of a department store at the time of course....

I actually watched an episode of Star Trek this weekend. First time in about 12 years. I thought of you the whole time. Poor William Shatner, he is now Captain Corky in my book, for all time. It was the ep where Spock goes on trial.

I was up at like 1:00 last night and noticed that Trek was on NBC!! It was one of those new (sort-remasterd) episodes...

Which one?

Space Seed.

Yes, there's nothing like Khan at 1 in the morning. ;)

Damn that Liberal Media, Pixie!

You were married to Captain Corky?!?! I jest. Seriously, though, he used to do (still does?) the exact same thing. And don't even think about giving him a flip-phone!

I think of you now whenever I flip into an old episode, Cork. Can't wait to read tomorrow's post, it sounds like a hum-dinger!

Yay, you put me on your blogroll!
I am SO flattered!

Captain, would you believe that I have never watched an entire episode of "Star Trek" all the way through.

I swear I'm not a Commie! I swear! ;)

Will Six, are you of the body? Peace and tranquility. Landru knows all and sees all.

willSIX said...

willSix: Corky, this is my friend, Spock. Spock only tells the truth. Now, listen closely to Spock.

Spock: "Everything I say is a lie."

I, Mudd, bitches!

I wish my work was more like Star Trek. Then again if I was wearing a red shirt then there is no way that I am going around a corner by myslef.
