Somewhere out there

Last night I went to the Star Trek movie, STAR  TREK BEYOND.  I really enjoyed it.  This is the fiftieth year for Star Trek.  Fifty years ago Captain Kirk and the Starship Enterprise took us out to space 'the final frontier'  I was nine years old and captivated.  I had a bit of a crush on Spock and being a fickle girl I switched alliances to Scotty.
The picture is a shot from the International Space Station last year of the Northern Lights.  What if it is not just magnetic resonance interaction with solar influences, but a beacon to the crew of the Enterprise, and Scotty can really come back and find me and 'beam me up'.
Still a bit of the dreamer and the enchanted, fickle girl remains. 


  1. my favorite star trek episode is the salt lady, and favorite movie was the one with whales. Although I think that was the most recent one I've seen...

  2. My hero's, the Enterprise crew. I liked the original and Next Generation, but never did watch any of the other spinoffs, too much tv time. I remember the salt lady, she/it had to have salt and it disguised itself as woman so she could just touch you...

  3. I was always a Jean-Luc Picard fan. :)
