(Context: last night we watched Star Trek III and the kids have also been watching some of TOS)

My two youngest playing:

Youngest son: Let’s play Star Trek!

Middle Son: Ok! I’m Captain Kirk. But not the old one, the young one!

Indeed, my Oldest expressed confusion the other day over the fact that the Kirk in the movies was the same one as the one on TV

    1. I recall when Star Trek: The Motion Picture came out. I was 14 and had been watching TOS in re-runs for years. It was rather creepy watching these old geezers running around in Trek costumes, a decade having passed between appearances. That it’s now been 27 years since that movie, let alone the fact that two of the central cast members (Kelly and Doohan) are dead, is staggering
