Today is Star Trek‘s 46th birthday.
Google made them this way cool doodle.
I didn’t get them anything.
But to be fair, they didn’t post their birthday on Facebook…so I’m just now hearing about it.
I do wish them many warm regards. They are younger than I thought. I hope they don’t take offense at that comment. It just seems like they were always on the air when I was a kid.
I started watching Trek at first because my brother did. I thought he was cool. I wanted to be cool. So I watched. Then it was about the series…so much so that when Star Wars came around, I boycotted it on principle.
We’re talking serious Trekker.
When I worked at Hallmark Cards, I developed a line of Star Trek cards. I even did a focus group on Deep Space Nine — got a bunch of guys from IT to help me flesh out the offering.
Happy Birthday Star Trek! Live long and prosper.
