The Final Frontier 

It's been a couple of days, so the reality of the ending of Star Trek: Enterprise has settled in. Unfortunately, it wouldn't be more of a blip on the radar except for some of the Web sites I frequent (and help out on). While for the past 18 years, the Star Trek franchise has encouraged millions to "boldly go," perhaps it is time for the long-lived series to do the same.

After a disappointing experience with Star Trek: Voyager, I was never fully on board with a new series set before the original missions of Capt. Kirk, et. al. After four season, the show never truly won me over. I liked a lot of things about the Xindi arc from season three, but starting off the fourth season with space Nazis was bordering on ridiculous.

I'm sure there's a lot of other sites lamenting the series' passing and I feel for those who are losing their jobs. At the same time, I think the science fiction and TV worlds have moved passed Trek. Hopefully, with a little time off, Star Trek will come roaring back into a dominant place in the media universe.

Voices on the street

SAGINAW, Mich. -- I'm on the verge of my swan song in the Copper Country. So, after a stop in Ann Arbor, I visited my friends Erin and Steve at the "New Amadore Apartments." Their voices can be heard herein.

I hope that I can work with them on a blog collaboration in the future. We'll see.

Walking on sunshine ... 


Anyway, I've been in a pretty good mood. I don't know if it's the gloriously sunny weather or some things happening in my real life (more later). After a few dark months things are starting to look pretty bright. So bright, I've got to wear shades.

Hey, is it against the law to reference more than one cheezy song in a post. I hope not. ;)

Reflections on being in the Copper Country for four years en route to the Perkins restaurant parking lot. I moved to Hancock on Jan. 28, 2001.
