Trekkies Rejoice: The Mission Continues

SmuttyCat is a long time fan of sci-fi and all things Trek.

Now a great group has banded to bring us fresh episodes of adventures from Star Trek The Original Series.  With staff and crew who have plenty of professional chops, this is a great project. Scotty is even played by the son of James Doohan.  What more could you want? Well, maybe Uhura could get a better wig that doesn’t move as much. After all, hairspray was a staple in the period and they are trying to be accurate. Also, Spock will need to work on the one-eyebrow lift patented by Leonard Nimoy. It just adds that ultra-Vulcan touch.

Currently there is one complete episode available to watch with a current Kickstarter campaign to raise additional funds for future episodes. SmuttyCat is always in  favor of more Star Trek of any kind (except Enteprise, that’s quite enough of that) and strongly encourages everyone to open their piggy banks and donate now to improve entertainment.

Enjoy the first episode, “Pilgrim of Eternity” starring Michael Forest reprising his role as Apollo below.  And keep up with the news on their website. And if you donate, let them know SmuttyCat sent you.

Watch long and prosper.

Breaking News — Democracy Suspended!

Human politics are amusing to the superior animal kingdom. With animals, the strong survive, the children are protected and life is simple and clean. No one holds a baby sparrow hostage because they don’t get catnip

On the other hand, human politics involve a lot of silly posturing that could never be backed up in a one on one smackdown for leadership. For instance, a minority Republican party recently shut down the American government in a temper tantrum because they don’t like healthcare being extended to everyone. What a stupid show. If you can’t be the pitcher you take your bat and glove and go home? Very evolved.

Now, SmuttyCat has learned that in a secret meeting, the House Republicans repealed the right of any member of congress to call for a vote to re-open the government in the event of a stalemate. So, not only did the stupid humans shut down the government, they won’t face their bosses (the American people) and vote in public to say they did this.

Um, does anyone remember Democracy? The right of the people to know how the government is run? The right of the people to know and vote on changes? No secret meetings.

Only after the videos below were made public, did the Republicans finally vote to extend the budget and re-open the government. SmuttyCat won’t go into all the ways this is stupid, look at the videos and speak for yourselves.

And remember this stuff next election. Humans deserve adult representatives, not tantrum-throwing toddlers.
