Rene Auberjonois 1940 - 2019

Star Trek fans mourn the loss of René Auberjonois, (the shapeshifer Odo) in "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" who died aged 79 on Sunday (Dec. 8)

Rene Auberjonois passed away at his Los Angeles home. He had metastatic lung cancer which his son Rèmy-Luc Auberjonois told the Guardian. Auberjonois' death was confirmed by spokespeople on his official Twitter account.


Since the news, numerous "Star Trek" actors have paid tribute to Auberjonois on social.media

Television delivered big success for Rene not forgetting his films  The Rockford Files to Grey’s Anatomy, Starsky and Hutch to Frasier, he was a regular on three popular and vastly different shows. Trekkers will remember him as Deep Space Nines Security Chief  "Constable" given him by Kira Nerys whom he investigated. Odo had little patience for flim flam wheeler dealers like Quark or criminals trying to pull a scam or break the rule of law, whom he usually caught out with ease by "shapeshifting" into the background. Easy for Odo who waited for his "prey" to make its move while boldly entertaining

Live Long and Prosper, trekkers




Rene Auberjonois was great and as this video shows could laugh at himself.

Do you believe in Teleportation?






Teleportation events date back as far as 1593, October 24th. The phenomenon itself fascinated earthers of the time. It was Charles Fort who coined the phrase "teleportation." which described the transportation of a person or object from one place to another.

So what happened on that October day in 1593? Seriously, does anyone have a real clue?

One particular noteworthy case occurred involving witnesses and a uniformed imperial guard appearing in Plaza Mayor in Mexico City. It was all very mysterious indeed.

The person was recognised as a palace guard for the Governor in the Philippines capital, Manila, whom people recall looked dazed and confused. He materialized out of no-where in the bright light of day looking like something out of Star Trek. When the villagers asked him who he was, he identified himself as Gil Perez. However he explained, he didn't understand how he ended up where he was. All was not what it seemed. Well well, rumours spread fast, "have we got a deserter, here?"

Gil Perez recounted his teleportation experience which began when the Governor, Gomez Perez Demarinas gave the order to have his head taken off! Why? cried the villagers in disbelief. "I spoke ill words of the Governor, I'm was so sorry. There can be no forgiveness, he said!" The Governor was not someone to be crossed. it was game over for me!. The villagers gasped horrified.



MEXICO CITY PLAZA MAYOR

The blood from previous executions stained the wooden deck upon which numerous headless victims got split craniums and fell, gushing before blood thirsty spectators visiting the castle by invitation of the Governor. Perez felt weak at his knees and sick to the stomach. He rubbed his neck before being forced to place his head on the block.

 "No, way never, how can this be happening to be?" cried Perez begging for forgiveness. The block smelt awful. As a final insult to the condemned, the governor ordered the hooded executioner (who was a green alien with pointy ears) to use a blunt blade on Perez which added to the immense pain and suffering inflicted on victims. Perez screwed his eyes shut and hoped the axeman wouldn't botch the job as the blade cut through the air....

Later the Governor himself suffered an ill fate. Suffice to say no-one believed Gil Perez's story when he re-energized like Captain Kirk beaming down from the starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701 several days later in Plaza Mayor in Mexico City. But what really happened and who was the alien with pointy ears? No, instead Perez was arrested and chucked in jail as a deserter for abandoning his duty.


THE USS ENTERPRISE NCC 1701 

However upon close scrutiny his story actually held up. Years have passed but Records dating back to 1698 documenting this highly unlikely case were written by a religious historian. More witnesses testified that yes, Gil Perez was seen on duty as a palace guard the day before his mysterious appearance in Mexico.

 Why Governor Demarinas hated this guard isn't known. Gil Perez was sent back to Manila to retake his position as a palace guard and lived a seemingly uneventful life ever after. Believe it or not actually. These occurrences are actual real life events!  with elements of Star Trek but even still facts are facts!

Maybe somebody is having a laugh but one thing is clear. The records while contentious are indisputable. I've tried to give an accurate account of teleportation in 1593 which transpired in Mexico City. Did the Starship Enterprise save Gil Perez' neck by travelling back in time?

Would you have believed Gil Perez "Beam me down,Scotty story?"

Live Long and Prosper Trekkies, Niners and Trekkers! Enjoy Your Star Trekking.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS PT-1 TNG

Star Trek TNG The Best of Both Worlds
Writer Michael Piller
Director: Cliff Bole
Creator: Gene Roddenberry

A battle leads to all out war at Wolf 359. In Star Treks TNG cliffhanger episode the Borg take on the Federations flagship USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D! The United Federation of Planets is paralysed with the annihilation of 40 ships including Klingon, remember? Captain Picard now kidnapped and transformed by Borg automatons speaks for them. "I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is futile, your life as it has been is over - from this time forward you will service us!"



The Borg appear to have one collective mission on their hive minds. Get the Picard and wipe out the Federation. It's a magnificent stratagem for the Borg who beam aboard the Enterprise-D and swipe Picard by complete surprise. In beautiful precision these automatons execute their daring plan, stunning Starfleet's sharpest trained bridge-crew in the fleet.



 I was gob smacked in 1992 when Star Trek's Best of Both Worlds aired in Ireland. Tapping into one of the Federations brightest minds walking past Starfleet defenses using his knowledge... Pure genius wasn't it? but....... No way! I thought in 1992 as I went into complete denial, the Borg learned all about Federation tactical defenses strengths and weaknesses by getting at Picard. It was game-over man!

No, Never, Never! I cried as reality sunk in despair and had to accept grim facts. This was pure defeat.

 Worf said it best. "He is a Borg" when the rescue failed. Picard becomes Locutus, the new voice for the Borg. Any trekker who watches Star Trek's The Best of Both Worlds, Part I+2 even today will get an adrenalin rush with this chiller thriller.



 The unbelievable scheming of both sides sets the pulses racing as Commander Riker vs Borg Picard now "Locutus" battle it out for supremacy during this lead up to Battle of Wolf 359. Its really a no-win scenario in this epic action assault of firepower and wits until....Yes, Riker fires on Picard's Borg Cube!

Believe it. Mr Worf..... Fire!

How many lives were lost at the Borg vs Federation firefight at Wolf 359?

21,000
11,000
10,000

Who do you blame for the loss of Benjamin Sisko's(DS9) wife?

Admiral Hanson
Captain Picard
The Borg

STAR TREK FUTURE DEFENDERS

Cadets have enrolled in Starfleet over the years making their dreams come true by turning scores of Doctors, Scientists and Engineers into future leaders. These guys are our protectors... Over 2019 we've been hearing a lot about them and it fair to say newcomers Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora are shooting the Trek with Star Trek Picard as we speak.

PICARD - PATRICK STEWART

Now I Know what your thinking. All we have to do is watch Star Trek and put on our listening ears.....but questions remain. Is there an equivalent to Game of Thrones Sandor "The Hound" Clegane or Arya Stark ? These characters while set to fight civil wars in medieval times are interesting and fun to watch.

SEVEN - JERI RYAN OBSERVING
BEVERLY, PICARD OBSERVING THEMSELVES



DR HELEN NOEL
So who do you think was the ladies man? Kirk or Picard?  James T. Kirk had many conquests one being Dr Helen Noel (Dagger of the Mind) played by Marianna Hill. Jean Luc Picard scored big with Dr Beverly Crusher - Gates McFadden in (STTNG Attached)

So where will Star Trek Picard lead us in the future as the admiral time-treks on his mission through the 24th century?

REPLICAS WHERE NO A.I. HAS GONE BEFORE

The movie Replicas begins with a shocking Star Trek experiment going baldly where no A. I. has gone before. On the table lies a dead human, Sergeant Kelly. "His neurological data is still accessible" states Scientist William Foster rather dead-pan treating his snuffed out patient like a piece of meat with no human rights whatsoever. I mean, hes not complaining. So much for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Android, Robot, Human who cares, right?


THIS MAN IS DEAD - 

 Only Sergeant Kelly cares! Thing is hes still alive or at least his mind is... now surrounded in a lab by a bunch of curious nerds and fascinated geeks who don't give a stuff about human rights or feelings just getting the thing to speak. Disconnected from reality, Sergeant Kelly's human brain engrams struggle to survive as they're implanted into a highly functional Artificial Interface. (I guess the soldier signed a waiver when he joined the army.) Now he's A.I. subject 345 trying to comprehend the human Scientist William Foster standing before him in this Frankenstein maternity lab.... what a major drag.....

WHO AM I?


"Who am I" cries A.I. 345 with disturbing anxiety. "Sergeant you've transitioned to a synthetic body. Try to relax, you're coming online, It'll take some time" For fu*k sake, now wasn't that cold of Foster who should have realized the A.I. would remember its past life. The sad thing here is A.I.345 realizes its no longer human and yet with Kelly's memories logic dictates...... it must want to experience human feelings because it actually speaks, not just vocalizes or makes sounds but speaks out intelligently.

If only producers thought more about the A.I's "emotions". They could have made this into a much better movie which only gets 5.5 on IMDB, still very worth while watching. Shock overwhelms Kelly's synthetic engrams.... Is it any wonder our tormented A.I. Sergeant totally flips out? When he speaks scientists freeze in amazement catching their breath. The creature A.I. 345 is now tapping its fingers and staring at his hands, hating itself with pure rage. (I think it would have been cool if A.I. had said "Who has done this to me?")


A.I. KELLY SEES HANDS FOR FIRST TIME
THROUGH HIS ROBOTIC EYES

"Who am I?" it cries out louder now. Despair overwhelms our A.I. robotic friend as fear sinks in. Now hes afraid and terrified truly appalled something unknown  has dehumanized him. Its awful....being trapped and unable to exact retribution on the cowards who transformed him into a monster, so what does he do? Kelly tries to kill himself. We hear the agony in A.I.345 voice as it pleads for answers.... Who am I? which he managed to cry out 5 times before Foster aka Keanu Reeves  pulled the plug.



DID A.I. KELLY EVER SAY - NO, NO NEVER, NEVER!!!




 I actually felt sorry for A.I. Kelly 345 who should have been granted the right to die with dignity, instead he became a spectacle for onlookers. A high tech experiment with head honchos trying to cash in..... only Foster has different ideas. Now the climax of the movie is Fosters wife Mona Foster - (Alice Eve) and of course this being sci-fi the story. SPOILER ALERT: has a tragic twist and William Foster flies off the deep end. Enough said. I'm not ruining the ending. but Mona makes a very good point! If it spoke, it can feel! You can't just keep bringing people back from the dead.

WHO AM I?

ITS TOO MUCH FOR KELLY TO ADMIT
THERE CAN BE NO FORGIVENESS, COMPASSION OR LOVE FOR ROBOTS


How would you react if a trusted doctor put you to sleep and reawakened your mind in a machine?
How would you feel? Betrayed? Violated? 
Would you like your memories to be implanted into a synthetic brain (like commander Data In Star Trek TNG) if it were possible?
Should/do the laws of today allow medics/scientists to violate patients? even dead ones?

STAR TREK PICARDS CAST

The Star Trek Picard series release is all set for Jan 24th 2020 in the UK and 23rd of Jan 2020 in the US ' with CBS ALL ACCESS... So while the plot is a mystery... Patrick Stewart  sees the Picard series as the growth of the whole franchise.

 Patrick Stewart (Jean Luc Picard) says we've not just set it (Picard series) in the future but we've carefully set it 18 to 20 years actually in the future (since Nemesis.) because all of us that are here before (TNG  cast) have aged in the same way as the show.

PICARDS DOG


The tagline, The End is only the Beginning... is a bit of a teaser. According to sources Star Trek Picard is not a sequel to The Next Generation - executive producer Akiva Goldman has said,

"Its slower and more gentle and more lyrical... its more character based... it has a hope for a future that’s in many ways better than the world we live in today."





It great Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes), Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis) Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) and B4/Data (Brent Spiner) returning to venture forth into the galaxy with a new mix of contemporary co-stars who will deliver a faster paced, exciting Adrenalin rush younger fans expect these days.

WHATS MY NAME?


A young woman, Dahl (Isa Briones) seeks out Picard as she escapes from some kind of tragedy, now shes in search of answers. Picard (Patrick Stewart) retd, Admiral Picard has a job to do and undertakes a dangerous mission without the help of Starfleet.

A poster of Picard at Comic-Con revealed the Admiral has a pet dog. Turns out the creatures real name is De Niro. I wonder does he get confused sometimes?

QUIZ:   So whats Jean Luc Picard's doggies name in the new sci-fi show? Here are some hints - only one is the answer. Go on see if you can guess...

1. Spock
2. No 1
3. Seven

STAR TREK TNG - WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS

Star Date: 41697.9
Writers:  Deborah Dean Davis, Hannah Louise Shearer
Director: Robert Becker
Image Owner Creator: Paramount and or CBS
IMDB


The USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D experiences a time loop experiment gone awry. Turns out the scientist responsible, Dr Paul Manhiem and wife Jenice send out an SOS. Just when Picard was winning, a time distortion ripples throughout the entire sector repeating time during his fencing game!



PICARD FENCING HERBERT


Interesting move sir, what technique is that? The technique of a desperate man. 
Interesting move sir, what technique is that? The technique of a desperate man.


RIKER, PICARD AND TROI

The phenomena kicks in taking over distorting the timeline. Picard rushes to the bridge to get answers only to hear Manheims rescue co-ordinates. Manheim sounds ill. Data states the obvious, the phenomena in not an illusion but occurred in real time.

PICARD ON HOLODECK DECK



The time experiment is out of control and threatens to rip open the very fabric of space. Meanwhile, heres how it plays out. Picard indulges in holodeck programmes trying to recapture his past and rid himself of guilt.


JENICE

Its 22 years later with the USS Enterprise-D at warp 8 in a bid to rescue Jenice from nonlinear time experiments gone afoot. Theres a mystery to be solved at Vandor IV. Manheim and Jenice beam up to sickbay. All is not what it seems.

MANHEIM, JENICE, PICARD, DATA, TROI AND DR CRUSHER

Oh we are us, Sir, They are also us. So , indeed, we are both of us at different points along the same time continuum - Data explaining the situation.

A breach in time created by Manheim has created alternate dimensions at different points in the time continuum. Thats why we see three Data's in Manheim's lab, when hes ready to discharge the anti-matter. Only Data is successful! He repairs the temporal anomaly.

DATA SEALING TIME DISTORTION BREACH


Thanks to the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D holodeck, Picard finally gives Jenice a proper goodbye. 22 years later in an open air cafe with Parisian views of the the Eiffel Tower.


Have you ever been to France or the Eiffel Tower?
PICARD  - EIFFEL TOWER

Do you think Picard regrets running out on Jenice?

Data said it's me in this episode! How is this possible? he can't use contractions.

Live Long and Prosper, trekkers.

ALIEN LANGUAGE IN SCIENCE FICTION

Michael Dorn (aka Worf) studied the Klingon Way written by Marc Ocrand. In an interview given by the actor, "Worf" happily mentions the Klingon Dictionary, its description of Klingons and their behaviour. He speaks about how the book helped him develop his Klingon character that got him the part for the Star Trek's TNG.




So here he is at a Rose City Comic Con at Portland, Oregon with Gates Mc Fadden (Beverly Crusher) and Marina Sirtis (Counselor Troi) chatting to fans about the Star Trek Discovery appearance of Klingons in the new show.


QUESTION: 


"Your mother has a smooth forehead"  - is an insult in which Alien language in Science Fiction?

NA'VI

1) Alienese (Futurama)

2) Na'vi (Avatar)

3) Dothraki (Game of Thrones)

4) Klingon (Star Trek)


 The 4 you see here are real alien languages, developed by linguistic professionals and professors.

Which one of these Sci-Fi alien languages do you think holds the correct answer? Have fun!

It seems like these guys are trying to make the Discovery appear like traditional Star Trek again with Captain Pike back calling the shots.



JOHNATHAN FRAKES AKA RIKER - STAR TREK TNG
The big draw for fans will certainly be the cast of the next big Trek adventure, Star Trek Picard - starring Patrick Stewart (Picard), freshmen Alison Pill (Agnes Jurati), Isa Briones (Dahj), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Santiago Cabrera (Chris Rios), Harry Treadaway (Narek), and Evan Evagora (Elnor), along with executive producer Alex Kurtzman who will be part of both halves of the event.

Are you going to Comic Con this year to join in the fun? How do you rate Star Trek Discovery season 1, 2 and 3 for optimism?

Which Star Trek series, Discovery or Star Trek Picard are you a fan of? 

Which Star Trek characters will you be rooting for when S T Picard or STDiscovery streams online?

CAPTAIN PICARD TV SERIES

So analysis has begun with Star Trek Picard's trailer... after a 17 year TNG hiatus some of trek's icons have returned. Here we can see actors and crew who have changed the face of sci-fi and Star Trek. Isn't it neat seeing Picard, Seven and Data again?.... only Data looks different. Cos like remember B4? He sure was one unusual situation.... Well, guess what?



Brent Spiner said at Comic Con, that he's only in occasional episodes as B4. Fans are giving positive feedback generally pleased with the Star Trek Picard trailer with arms opened wide but questions remain. Where's Worf? We also see a Borg cube with missing sections but curiously Borg regeneration chambers are visible.


Damn, how can Jeri Ryan still be so hot???? 20 years later??? nanaprobes right? Shes like 51 but lets get serious when you see a woman all wrapped up like Seven, she definitely makes an impression.




The main characters in the show are the young men and women. Picard, Seven of Nine and Data appearing seem to up the stakes somehow because they're so likable. So who's the villain? We don't know much except a hot babe Picard has encountered whom he believes is in danger.....

THE LEGEND PICARD RETURNS

Heres Patrick Stewart chatting to a packed convention hall in Star Trek Las Vegas as only he can, "Make it so". The fans of course loved every minute of it and couldn't get enough of "the Picard" news. How do you separate the legend from the man? So everyone settled down and listened to Stewart speak and WOWSERS!  He just blew us away..... and this is just the beginning!

"You know, whatever happens in the next few years what you did makes it all worthwhile anyway. However I have to tell you, he (Jean Luc Picard) may not and I stress, may not be a captain anymore. He may not be the Jean Luc that you recognize and know so well. It may be a very different individual - someone who has been changed by his experiences. 20 years will have passed which is more or less exactly the time of the very last movie Nemesis and today. We have no scripts as yet, we're just talking, talking, talking storylines.





It will be I promise you, I guarantee it, something very very different but it will come to you with the same passion and determination and love of the material and love of our followers and our fans exactly as we had it before. Thank you so much, I will see you all again very soon.

QUENTIN TARANTINO'S STAR TREK FILM

Finally June 2019 is here, deadline reports world famous Star Trek fan, Quentin Tarantino is pitching his idea for a new Star Trek film and guess what my trekker friends? Paramount loves it! Well why wouldn't they? with Q.T. record, Star Trek's sleeper franchise will burst into life!. Word is Tarantino and J.J.Abrams are in talks about Q.T's "idea."




 Simon Pegg, some say, reckons..... "That idea is going into the writer's room to be looked at. I think it might take something like him to restart it."  Tarantino wants the film to be R rated, so its a safe guess the crew of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 are gearing up for some hysterical, homicidal trekamania. What could be so wrong with exploring new territory with a splash of red boldly going where no satirist has gone before?....Sounds so right doesn't it?

KEENSER AND SCOTTY


So now Tarantino is in talks to explore Star Trek 4 with the studio. While nothing is set in stone, the plot is still unknown. Tarantino has already met with producer J.J. Abrams about his Star Trek idea, as well as with a writers room. Tarantino also apparently revealed that a script has been written according to Empire Magazine. Deadline previously reported that Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) was set to pen the script.

 Lindsey Beer (Chaos Walking) and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) were also in the running to write the film and met with Tarantino in late 2017 to discuss story ideas. In January, Paramount motion-picture group president Wyck Godfrey spoke to the New York Times about the plans for the movie studio. His comments made it sound like Tarantino's Star Trek is a priority for the studio.

 So now what? (Simon Pegg's question is:) I don't know if that means everybody will be blowing each other's heads off with phasers and calling Klingons mother f*****s, but, who knows? That could be fun."

Who do you think will be the futures new female characters and evil villains? Will Keenser, Scottys sidekick return? Do you want to see R rated Star Trek movies?

A Fan Celebrating the Borg's 30th


 Jeri Ryan is always on the track aka Seven of Nine celebrating the latest Borg vibes with us. She appears at a couple of Star Trek conventions each year and her birthday is Feb 22, 19--..... and here she is with her husband Christophe. Well it would've been rude for me to just blurt out her age! In 2016 July 23rd, she joined William Shatner, Scott Bakula, Brent Spiner and Michael Dorn at a jam packed San Diego Comic-Con panel celebrating Trek's 50th Anniversary..



"The Borg are badass, but I think also its about them being a villain we can learn a little something from."

 In 2014 she reprised her role as Seven of Nine for Star Trek Online's Delta Rising game. So here's a new interview with quotes directly from Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One herself thanks to our friends at Star Trek magazine...

JERI RYAN

 "The fans are amazing, and conventions are an easy way to stay in touch with them" Ryan stated enthusiastically. "It makes people happy. I get it. If I met somebody that I'm a fan of, I fall to pieces and I'm a mess and have no cool at all. So I get how exciting it is for somebody to talk to you and smile at you and see you like you're a human, because a lot of people don't.

 Thats not cool and thats always disappointing for me when I meet an actor who doesn't appreciate and respect the fans, because none of us would be anywhere without the fans. They're the only reason any of us are employed be writer, actor, producer, studio head any of us. They're such a passionate, a loyal, dedicated bunch of fans.

 "I've also met some of the Discovery actors and they're all lovely, very sweet," Ryan says "Its makes me excited to be part of the franchise. They tend to be excited to be part of the Trek family and we are happy to have them in it. I think they're all great additions."

PICARD IS BACK

Serial number: SP 937-215 
USS Stargazer (NCC-2893), (2333–2355)
 USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D, (2364–2371)
USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E, (2372–)



Here is a list of Starfleets spaceships captained by JEAN LUC PICARD. Impressive isn't it? To boldly engage worthy opponents of the Federation's like Preator Shinzon, Ardra, Q the Omnipotent, Nausicaans and the Borg Queen took strength of will and determination which we've all experienced in Star Trek TNG....well now the most noted captain in space exploration and interstellar diplomacy...... I'm lost for words my friends,  Picard's back... 


CAPTAIN JEAN LUC PICARD
STAR TREK FIRST CONTACT


 Word is we're definitely witnessing the return of our Star Trek hero, friend, diplomat and protector to guide us once again through the stars after 18 years of wilderness... Star Trek nemesis, well lets be honest was pure bewilderment and Data's death? lets not even go there!!! what a disaster. Fans say Picard is great for talking his way out of trouble but do you consider him an action-man? Remember Star Trek First Contact? Despite all his diplomacy, tough talk, and we come in peace, Picard proved he had what it takes to blaze off rifle rounds and make Borg pay....




 Amazon beat Netflix to stream CBS' new Picard series in more than 200 countries and territories. The show is currently filming to stream later this year which began in April in Los Angeles, so how will Patrick Stewart reprise his role? Little is known except for speculation. Is Patrick Stewart returning as an academy instructor? admiral, captain or civilian? Its no secret Patrick Stewart has the Midas touch so for some amazing reason, Stewarts got the gift to make it so with us - the fans.

Starfleet has the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E so whats next? Who gets the captains chair? Johnathan Frakes gets the directors chair with SirPatStew as executive producer. Recent Star Trek Picard leaked photos give us Picard in civilian clothes with an Ensign asking his name.

What do you think? Speak now to be heard and become immortalized for all trek time, lol.


CAPTAIN JEAN LUC PICARD
FIRST CONTACT



Even the name sounds cool, Star Trek Picard - so much is right about it. The USS Enterprise represents true hope, vast technology, and service to humankind. According to Alex Kurtzman, we should not expect a reboot of Star Trek TNG but rather expect a more psychological show about a man in his twilight years, the hero we need right now. 

What are you hoping for when you switch on Star Trek Picard?

Live Long and my Trekker Friends, Picard is back!

TO BOLDLY GO AND DISCOVER

Uss Discovery Ncc 1031
Discovery, Futurism and Safety. The Galaxy is a big place but luckily for us our world has sunlight, gravity and h20 which sustains happy earthers and makes life possible. However all is not as it seems. Not everything is clearly marked. For instance theres no sign-posts in space.

While few of us wonder where the cosmos came from or why nature is the way it is, Star Trek has loads of UFP spacefaring organizations. Many have bright leaders like Starfleet who look towards the future. The very bad I will not identify because they are militant and might send their loyal henchmen to get me, lol. Several have unique signs and symbols but who are they?
BORG

Do you feel afraid or safe in our Terran Solar System?

STAR TREK QUOTES

Star Trek has impacted on popular culture with phrases and quotes from the show infecting us, Yes! Thats means you and me. Haven't you noticed? Yes or No? maybe you're an unbeliever? So we're skeptical at first and undecided with unbelief!

GOOD HONEST HATRED, VERY REFRESHING
KOR



 Thats why our heroes commanding the starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701 are roaming the universe spreading the good word. STAR TREK LIVES! Now Trek communication has taken grip of our everyday lives via our conversations through those gadget thingies everyones staring at especially at fan conventions. Iphones they call them. Almost everyone knows the Star Trek lingo, stating logical facts or hellsfire in heated moments of passion.

But who said what?   Which one is your favorite?

All hands Battle Stations!
Beam me up, Scotty!
Fascinating.
Hes dead Jim.
I'm a doctor not a bricklayer!
Hailing frequencies open.
Engage!
Make it so.
Resistance is futile.
KHAAAAAAAAANNN!

Live long and Prosper!  :) my trekker friends!
