Yesterday, I turned 49. On top of that, Star Trek Continues released their third episode, “Fairest of Them All.”
If someone had told me as a kid watching afternoon Trek repeats on that crappy TV station out of Wheeling, West Virginia, that I would get a “new” Mirror Universe episode on my 49th birthday, I probably would have spent all these years looking forward to turning 49 instead of… well… you know…
Especially since I’ve always wondered what happened aboard the ISS Enterprise once “good” Kirk, McCoy, Scotty, and Uhura returned to their own reality. Now I know. And not only was it worth the wait, I half-expected to hear my mother yelling at me for sitting too close to the TV, I felt like that much of a kid again.
If you grew up like I did, just watch, and you’ll see what I mean.
