Not to the end of LastShortStory, but towards another – perhaps as yet unstated – goal: to watch all of the original Star Trek movies, in order. I’m currently watching number 3: “The Search for Spock.” It’s pretty good… you know, for an ancient Star Trek movie… Christopher Lambert (I think? – the mad scientist from Back to the Future) is dreadful. Kirk is really very entertaining – I love that he knows everyone’s jobs better than they do; Bones is probably my favourite, I’ve decided.
It has also suddenly occurred to me that maybe the Vulcans have the upturned eyebrows because they’re meant to be elven? Amoral, long-lived… not sure too many people have written about the elves as being driven by logic, but there’s always a possibility.
