So Star Trek is back. Beam me right up. I saw J.J. Abrams’ reboot last night, and I cannot wait to see it again (which I’ll do on Saturday — already bought my ticket). And it’s got my head full of the original Trek again, which my foundling geekiness was nurtured on via afternoon reruns during the late 70s, and later evening and late-night reruns in the 80s. The geek I am today was shaped by Kirk, Spock, Uhuru, Bones, Scotty, and the rest of the crew of the Starship Enterprise.
With all this in my head, I’ve got an easy question for you today: Who’s your favorite Star Trek character?
If you wanna talk about characters from across the Trek-trum, go for it. But I’m thinking specifically about the original series and the reboot. And to answer my own query, while I often fell briefly in love with Spock, I always had a soft spot for Scotty. And Simon Pegg in the role makes me love him even more.
