August 19 was Gene Roddenberry's birthday.
I've spent some energy -- not a lot, but some -- decrying the depths to which my once-beloved Star Trek has descended (see the "Star Trek Redux" posts, linked in my sidebar, for my views on the film series in its entirety), but I still admire what Roddenberry wrought.
Boldly go, indeed.
(Thanks to Lynn Sislo for pointing this out, as you might guess. Lynn points out more nifty stuff, really, than any blogger really has a right to point out, but somebody's got to do it!)
