Woah! It's Saturday. I can't remember the last time I posted on Saturday. Anyway, I'm here for a very special reason. Way back in 2013 when I was doing My (Actual) Year of Star Trek, it occurred to me that everyone in the Trek verse was clothed in upholstery fabric. I get it. I grew up back stage and I ran a Shakespeare program for over a decade.

I really wanted to do a really long post about it and I went about compiling screen grabs of Trek characters wearing couches and curtains but, in the end, I decided it should be a recurring feature rather than a single post. Then a whole year went by without me starting the series. Today that ends!
Here's a couch:
