It's all about me....don't we all just love filling these things out. I can remember watching the TOS first showing in the 60's when I was 4 or 5. Thinking that the phaser rifle was soooo cool I made one out of tinkertoys. :) In the years that followed, I found Lincoln Enterprises and started buying items like blueprints, braid and command insignia and other goodies. Then the books started to flow, I'd go to stores looking for those James Blish novelizations, the Making of Star Trek, and many more came on the scene. I am an avid reader, and loved my books. But every boy back then was a model builder right? Well I have all of my original models and those I don't have I've re-collected from auctions on Ebay over the years. My beautiful wife decided to give me an Avon set of DST figures one year and that started my collecting figures now...and as if that isn't enough, I collect the Master Replicas and John Long props too.
Is this who I am? No of course not, but you'll never really know me unless you talk to me, get to know me, and perhaps become friends. I work in a technology field, originally an engineer and now an executive. I enjoy school, I still attend university. And I relish entertaining my friends at home with my wife and two kitties. Drop me a note, ;)
Where were you on this day back in 1990?I can tell you where I was: I was sitting by the television waiting for the premiere of Star Trek: The Next Generation's fourth season! Are you kidding me?! I -- like all other Trek enthusiasts -- had waited all summer to find out the fate of Captain…See More
"Since my ancestry is predominantly Irish, I have to admit that I wouldn't have minded seeing what's left of the British f***ing Empire being given a black eye. But then again, to paraphrase Will Rogers, "I never met a Brit I…"
"Meh. I don't know. As a character, Scotty was never as much as a 'nationalist' as was, say, Chekov, so it's hard to reconcile how he may've come down on any particular issue involving his homeland. And…"
It was on this day back in 1991 that STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION returned from its summer break, launching into its fifth season with the episode, "Redemption, Part 2." The story brought about what I thought was a much-too-neatly-tied-up end to the Klingon Civil War that had divided the Empire --…See More
From everything that I saw on TOS, it was obvious that Scotty was a diehard nationalist, even in the 24th century. But if he were alive today, do you suppose he would've voted for or against Scottish independence? On the one hand, I think that he would like to see his country stand its own 2 feet, but at the same time, I think that his background in engineering would make him rational enough for him to see the benefits of remaining a part of the United Kingdom. In short, I just don't know!See More
"Thanks for the invite! The Multiverse (or the Omniverse, as some call it), is all I write about in my sci-fi stories. If you're interested, look for my work at www.amazon.com/author/bobbello and remember, "The impossible to day is possible…"
