I love Star Trek. Mr Strange Land loves Star Trek. We only found this out about each other after we got married. We hadn’t exactly tried to keep it secret, but it was one of those things we just hadn’t gotten around to discussing. I’m not sure what that shows about us.
My mother loves Star Trek, but my father does not. However he keeps Mum company while she watches it, and helps out by making a swishing sound when any doors open and close.
Some of our closest friends also love Star Trek. These are people who got engaged the same weekend we did, married the same year, had their eldest child, a daughter, just a few weeks after our eldest daughter arrived. One weekend, pre-babies, we got out all five Star Trek movies to date, watched them in close succession, and then went to see Star Trek VI the next day. We were the only people in the theatre who laughed when the Kobayashi Maru was mentioned.
We think that it’s probably time to introduce the Strangelings to the joys of Star Trek. The original series, of course.
