Where do you belong, on Firelfy or the Enterprise?
Today was Indulgence Friday, Daryl and I slipped away together to watch Star Trek and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Don't look for science, take a deep breath and go along for the ride.
But, at the end, where Kirk is getting a medal for saving the earth I felt stifled. I would much rather have been sucked through that black hole into the vastness of space and gone off exploring without ever having to answer to the stuffed shirts back on earth.
It made me realise I would be more comfortable on the bridge of the Firefly Serenity, than on the Enterprise. I'm more comfortable writing about misfit characters, who slip through the cracks of officialdom.
