Star Trek: The Next Generation

At Eastercon this year I was instructed to blog about Star Trek: The Next Generation by my friend Tom.
This was after a conversation in the bar, during which my thoughts about the series had Tom in stitches. Apparently I'm hilarious, and since that is exactly the kind of compliment that works on me, I'm now blogging about Next Gen.

My geekery doesn't come from a Trek background. I've barely seen 2 episodes of the original series. I remember Next Gen being on BBC2 at teatime as a kid, I watched bits. I prefer Deep Space Nine, with it's character development and politics I'm told it's the least Trek-like Trek series.

This isn't technically a rewatch as there are quite a few episodes I haven't seen. It's me writing what I think as I watch the episodes, with the intention of taking a humorous view.

I'm still going to blog about books, and other stuff that takes my fancy -I'm currently working on a post about scary dolls. I don't intend for this to become a Star Trek blog, but I'll try to write up an episode once a week (depending on my supply of borrowed DVDs).

So stay tuned for my thoughts on 'Encounter at Farpoint'.


  1. Just had a read of your post on "The Naked Now" and got a good chuckle! I'm not a hardcore Trekkie, but I am a big fan of the various series, and I grew up watching The Next Generation, so it's my favourite. I just received my newly-released Season 1 Remastered Blu-Ray yesterday, so I'm going to be watching through them all. Looking forward to reading your comments as I go through them! :-)

    1. Thank you.
      It's so nice to hear that you're enjoying the posts. :)
