Yesterday was my birthday!

I had a pretty mello day, mostly staying in and keeping warm and drinking wine.

And watching the first episode of season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery. I thought I could stay away but it keeps dragging me back in! Mostly because I wanted to see what Captain Pike is all about.

I realized, though, that Tilly perfectly embodies all of my feelings about the show. Like, she’s adorable and great and I love her! But what’s her actual job on the ship? Like, she’s an ensign, in a training program, but she’s on the bridge and doesn’t seem to have an actual post, and now she’s in engineering, and now she’s in charge of mission-critical projects and giving orders and things, and I don’t really understand any of this and none of it makes a lick of sense…

  1. Happy Belated Birthday!!! 😀

    I noticed that Netflix is now streaming Star Trek: The Original Series. As someone who’s only seen J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek movies, I suppose I should check it out sometime.

    Happy belated birthday Carrie! Mellow days that involve staying in and staying warm are nice.

    I can’t believe how cold it has been here without the metro area getting pounded by snow. Sometimes I wonder if we shouldn’t ask the Speedy Mart weather wizard to give us some more snow to go with the very cold mornings and nights we’ve had recently.

    The best episodes of Original Trek are great. “Devil in the Dark,” might be my favorite.
