Here's how it happened.
It began with, surprisingly enough, William Shatner:
Mark Hamill, cited by Mr. Shatner, replied:
Funny reply! Until, that is, a Star Trek geek from the Buffalo, NY area felt the need to point out that Mr. Shatner never faced the Borg on Star Trek. They came along for Patrick Stewart's tenure as Enterprise captain.
Sayeth the Trek geek from Buffalo:
The Borg? That was Patrick Stewart, NOT Mr. Shatner! Come ON, Mr. Hamill!!!— Kelly Sedinger (@Jaquandor) October 10, 2017
And then, replyeth Mr. Hamill:
Squeee! Proof for eternity that for a period of time--who cares if it was mere seconds long--Mark Hamill was aware of my existence!
I, of course, couldn't allow Mr. Hamill the last word, so:
Well, might as well bring a third franchise into the mix.... :) pic.twitter.com/Q8Yfcy0jc3— Kelly Sedinger (@Jaquandor) October 10, 2017
And as of this writing, there we stand.
Sometimes the future is kind of cool, in amidst the moments of existential dread and the ongoing awareness that everything is terrible.
