|Any episode where Janeway's all greased up and |
wearing a tank top instantly takes a place in my top ten.
It's funny because, as I was watching this episode, I was pretty caught up in it. I didn't think about the fact that I've had my own "Year Of" right here on the blog. Then, yesterday, Scott figured out that there's just a little over ten weeks left in 2013. I almost cried.
He said, "It's ok. You're going to get through all the episodes."
"I know. I just don't want it to be over."
My Year of Star Trek hasn't involved any vengeful temporal scientists bent on 100% restoration or my security officer being blinded in an explosion but it has been pretty crazy. Star Trek, for the last ten months, has filled my days, nights, dreams, and writing. It (as I recently discovered when some friends from out of town came by) is the subject of all my "humorous" anecdotes. I've made new friendships, new relationships, met LeVar Burton and Jonathan Frakes, got a book deal, moved and am about to move again. A part of my life that was once very private has become public. It has been startling and scary to share that part of myself with strangers. But it's also been rewarding. I can't believe I only have a few weeks left. It doesn't seem possible. This year hasn't been a year of hell but I suddenly find myself worrying that, without keeping up this project as I have done, next year will be.
