Chicago – Of “Star Trek”’s 725+ hours of film and television over the years, I’ve seen at least…650 of them, probably more. I care about the franchise, care about its canon, and absolutely love taking every opportunity I can to explore its themes, scientific theories, history, and lore. It’s a show with nearly unequaled depth. Hell, seemingly years of my life have been spent at www.ditl.org reading about the soft-sciences behind the “Star Trek” mythos. I also really liked what Jj Abrams did with the property in the 2009 reboot, and its sequel, too - despite its…murky relationship with the laws of physics.

Thus, considering all the elements to pull from: ship battles, interpersonal conflict, phasers, away missions, science, exotic locations, planetary exploration, the ability to travel at faster-than-light speed, replicators, lens-flare, holodecks, photon-torpedos, transporters, aliens, engine rooms, “I’m giving her all she’s got captain! »
