Hello World!

As it's Star Trek's 35th birthday, I suppose it falls to me to say something Deep And Meaningful. Which, unfortunately, means that I have had to shelve my planned Hello World! about McDonalds making cheese and tomato sandwiches. Can you believe that? I mean, soon they'll be doing a McSundayRoast.

Ahem. Anyway....

My greatest hope for Star Trek's 35th year of existence is that we, the fans, can put aside our petty differences and try to recapture some of the spirit that the television series have kindled within us.

And what better way to do this than watch the Enterprise premiere on September 26th with an open mind? Sure, you may not have liked (TOS/TNG/DS9/VOY - delete as appropriate) but Star Trek looks to have a bold new beginning. Just give it a chance.
