My TV sofa decided its cushion collection needed some groovy late-'60s SF goodness.

Who was I to say no?

You know, I've often heard people say, "I can't watch the adaptation of XYZ, the original is too close to me." And to that I usually think, "Oh come on, let go a little, just file it in your head as an 'alternate take' and you might even enjoy it."

Well, now it's happened to me.

Original Trek is, for me, One Of Those Fandoms. In fact, it's probably the definitive That Fandom. The exact thought that ran through my head when I heard about the new movie was, "Man, if they're going to re-cast TOS then they might as well re-cast..." long blank pause, "...might as well re-cast TOS."

I've heard lots of good things about the new movie. I like Karl Urban; I love Simon Pegg. And yet I'll probably never see it. It's not as though I'm militantly opposed to it or anything. My brain simply can't wrap itself around the concept. It Does Not Compute, in some strange, very fundamental way. I might as well try to convince myself that yellow is blue.

I know it's mostly to due to it being tied so closely into my formative years. My introduction to it at the age of twelve (via Saturday afternoon reruns) was my introduction to a great many other things, some of which appear only tenuously connected but which probably wouldn't have happened otherwise. I haven't been active in that fandom for many years now; but if I dig deep it will always be there, like bedrock.
