Is it wrong to think of my smartphone as my own personal tricorder? In my defense, I have a periodic table app…

Balok: the most amusing original series Star Trek character that ever was…

A Theory…

I’ve often thought that TV shows and films are representative of possible alternate realities. This would mean that Star Trek might exist in some form. Unfortunately, this means Twilight would exist, too. For every positive, there is a horrible mind-draining, soul-sucking negative.
