Interviewing—The Series

Several weeks ago, Mother’s Day was approaching. My grown sons were torn. The latest Star Trek movie was opening that weekend and they really wanted to see it. So when they asked me what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day, I sacrificed my longing for flowers that would wilt in a few days and opted to go to the movie with them. I was not disappointed at all! It was a great romp through outer space.

I have been a Star Trek fan since the beginning. I am not a Trekker, just a fan. I have followed the Enterprise through its various reincarnations. So, my graphic for this post is a traipse down memory lane (abbreviated, of course).

 

We began with the original series, with the gang playing cowboys in outerspace. And going boldly where no man had gone before. Captain Kirk was replaced by the properly British Jean Luc Picard, who was followd by the tough Kate Mulgrew character, to be followed by the Avery Brooks captain and finally the Scott Baluka captian (very nice on the eyes).

The Enterprise kept rolling along on television and in the movies. Some were great, others not so great, but exploring new worlds all the same.

Finally we came to the latest in the franchise. These guys changed it to where no one has gone before, responding to criticism of that half the race was missing in the earlier prologue.

 It was nice to return to the roots and original humor of the first series. I mean, how can you not get a laugh out of Scotty beaming himself into the hydraulic tube or Bones boarding the shuttle with a massive hangover?

So now we have Interviewing: The Series. I don’t know how long it will go, certainly, not as long as Star Trek, but I have done a lot of research and have found a lot of misinformation out there that I would like to dispel. But hang in with me for a while and settle in for the ride. I promise none of my posts will be as long as any of the movies, not even as long as some of the TV episodes.

Next: Where to begin?

  1. Ann – good to find out you’re a fan. However, as an original and continuing Trekker, allow me to make a small correction. The phrase was changed to “…where no ONE has gone before” over twenty years ago with The Next Generation.
