    It looks like the launch date — ummm, I mean the premiere — will be Sunday, September 24 in the U.S. of eh and Canada, and a day later elsewhere.

    I hope it doesn't blow. I have high standards when it comes to the Trek, and if it's not good I'm unlikely to watch any episode more than thrice, nay, four times at most.

    P.S. That's a Horta behind Adam, the hippy bloke playing the sonic sitar, not a steaming dump.

    Yeesh. I don't even know what a gorn is.

    Actually, I can describe the stories most of the non-crew characters were in, but don't ask for names, and as for episode names--ye gods.

    Okay, I do recognize Harcort Fenton Mudd, memorably called by his full name in the second episode he was in, "I, Mudd," "Mudd's Women" was the first. Low hanging fruit, I know....

    I am still slightly concerned that "10 years before Kirk" is Captain Pike and The Cage.
    Somewhere, The Enterprise crew is meeting short bald silent guys whilst wearing woolly collars.

    Today I was migrating from Jonathan's iMac B (2007) to Jonathan's iMac D (2017).

    Concern number 1 Am I breaking the prime directive? When iMac B goes back to it's proper time zone through the wormhole, will it alter the past? Will Brexit and Trump suddenly be reversed? Should I allow Lieutenant Tasha Yar to go with iMac B? How can I be sure this is not the best of all worlds? After all, Willow could be a sexy vampire?

    Concern number 2 Networked computers. How likely is it that I have a Cylon virus?

    I can tell Jonathan has a nice shiny 1227, though I'm not certain if it is a stripped and polished original or a modern reissue (I suspect the latter).

    I think it was some kind of anniversary or special edition. I have a different model shiny one on the other desk with the Cherry blue keyboard...

    I can see helmsman Gary Mitchell from the re-pilot, but not psychiatrist Dr. Elizabeth Dehner. Which is a real shame...

    There's only one Gorn.

    But I see Clint Howard and Michael J. Pollard.

    Flying brain cells (or fried eggs...), Cyrano Jones and a tribble...

    Gary 7 but no Teri Garr.

    Mark Lenard in two separate roles.

    I'm still looking for Mariette Hartley and Landru.
