Some Things Never Go Out Of Style (Archives a6 and a7)

Some things never go out of style. for example, Star Trek. This Antiquity from the Archives concerns Star Trek: The Next Generation. And that’s good, since that is a classic program.

However, there are some things that never go away that you just wish would shut up and get out of your face, like the Clintons. Will we never be done with Bill and Hilary Clinton???? Yet that is what this Antiquity  concerns as well.

Bill Clinton and Star Trek. You could put this post in a time warp and even in the 41st century they’d know Bill Clinton and Star Trek.

Trek 2

This juror on The Little Rock Whitewater trial came from Brooklyn, I am sorry to admit.

She wore a Star Trek uniform, complete with toy phaser and tricorder, to sit on a jury. “I stand for Star Trek’s ideals.”

At least Star Wars fans only call themselves Jedi, they don’t usually dress like one. But as I’ve said before, Trek fans are nuts. They learn to speak Klingon, a fictional tv language. They walk around in Trek costumes in broad daylight. And they claim wearing a Starfleet uniform to formal occasions “is appropriate.”

Note to Barbara Adams: It is not.

    You’ve obviously never read the story ( from the 70’s ) about the teenager who emulated Spock, even as far as his look & his emotionless demeanor. It did NOT, alas, end well. I’ve forgotten the fellow’s name, etc. I just remember the general story.
