I’ve been watching Star Trek: The Next Generation lately, all the way through, from Encounter at Farpoint to All Good Things. I’m a little less than halfway through the series, which has held up better than I had expected.
Yes, the hair is a little silly and yes, it’s a little early-90s preachy, but the characters don’t seem dated and most of the plotlines don’t either. (There are a few cringeworthy moments but none so awful as the hilariously awful space hippies of the original Star Trek.)
As it happens, the wonderful BoingBoing, I believe, posted two Star Trek links of late.
One is Spock Is Not Impressed, a one-note Tumblr blog which is good for a few laughs.
The other is Worf: The Cover Bands. Which… really needs to be seen to be believed. It’s pretty hilarious, though. My favorite one is the Mogh-Gos. Warning: There’s some nudity, but nothing that can’t be on the cover of an album. Although I suppose I didn’t read past the Mogh-Gos, either.
