Lt. McKendry reporting for duty, Captain.
First of all, I want to thank Commander Garrett for hosting this blogfest. It was lots of fun to think about all the episodes.
I got into Star Trek because my brother and my Dad were big fans. I loved it! Captain Kirk was gorgeous and I loved all the cool space gadgets. I could never really get into the Next Generation though. I was too attached to the old cast.
Last weekend we started introducing our kids to the originals with the first pilot episode and we are working our way through watching the whole first season. My 7 year old son was laughing at the "graphics" but he loved the stories.
My Favorite Characters:
Captain James T. Kirk--Is there any more I can say?
Spock-- I love his confusion at Kirk's illogical notions
Dr. McCoy-- The good doctor's humor is infectious.
Lt. Uhura-- She's just awesome!
Mr. Sott-- He always finds a way to get those engines running.
Favorite Episodes (from original series) /Movies:
The Trouble With Tribbles--Oh they were so cute! I really thought I could have one as a pet. (I was pretty young)
Day of the Dove--The alien who fed on negative energy, it made my brothers and I think twice before squabbling.
The Voyage Home- Movie- My favorite line is from Scotty: "Computer....computer?" "How quaint!"
The Enterprise Incident-- Who doesn't love the Romulan cloaking device?
The Wrath of Khan-- I never forgot that earwig scene.
Live Long and Prosper
