Entry for October 17, 2008: These are the voyages…

As most people who read my blog know by now, I've been a longtime fan of space opera. Entertainment Weekly recently released photographs of the upcoming Star Trek reboot movie.

While I might have preferred to continue stories in Gene Roddenberry's shared universe from the end of The Next Generation/Deep Space Nine era, I do think the cast, costumes, and sets of J.J. Abrams' film look promising. Of course, the plot and script matter most, and I'm cautiously optimistic that Roddenberry's idealistic, humanist vision of a "wagon train to the stars" will be revived.

Live long and prosper…
