To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before

Conversations with a Trekie
Hubs: So the 3 dots means Commander and the 2.5 dots means LT Commander?
Me: Huh?
Hubs: Reiker has 3 dots and Troy  has 2 and 1/2 dots. I’m trying to learn their insignias.
Me: What are talking about?
Hubs: Star Trek Next Generation. You never listen to me.
Me: I do to.
Hubs: Whatever. Anyway, I’m writing down what rank everyone is so I know who and what they are.
 Me: Why?
Hubs: So when I meet them I know what’s what. I don’t want to call Reiker Captain when he is obviously a Commander.
Me: Uh huh… you know he just PLAYS a Commander right?
Hubs: Bite your tongue woman! If Diana Troy teleported down here right now your arse would be replaced in a heart beat. They live among the stars. They go bravely forth into new worlds. They boldly go where no man has gone before.
Me: Your scaring me.
Hubs: You should watch with me. This is educational.
Me: Educational?
Hubs: Astronomy. Hellooo? Planets, solar systems, new life forms.
Me: Are you taking your meds?
Hubs: Oh that Data. He’s hilarious.
Me: Uh huh.
Hubs: Your just jealous.
Me:  Why is that?
Hubs: ‘Cause they would like me better.
Me: Sure they would. Crazy people always bond together.
Hubs: OoooO…I need one of those.
Me: One of what?
Hubs: That communicator pin. Just hit and I could talk to you from anywhere.
Me: You have something like that. It’s called a cell phone.
Hubs: Stop dissing on my parade woman!
Hubs: When do you think they’ll make new episodes.
Me: The show ended in 1994.
Hubs: WHAT?!?!?!
Me: Yep. They have all retired and now hang out in the lounge getting drunk and telling lies.
Hubs: They can’t end it. I must complain. Who do I write to?
Me: Complain about what? It’s O.V.E.R. It’s been over for like 16 years.
Hubs: *sobbing softly on the couch* It’ll never be over for me. Never.

LOVE IT!! I'm a TNG fan - I have sweet memories of sitting with my son, I think he was 2 or 3 (he's 17 now), and we'd watch Star Trek before bed. At the time he could name the characters, now he doesn't know who any of them are, LOL.

Patti-I like it too, the original and TNG, but not quite as much as hubby. :)
