I awoke this morning from a funny Trek dream. It takes place in the new Trek Movie – but with the original actors as they were in the 60’s.
At one point, Spock has to seduce a crew member to get info regarding an impending invasion. I marvel at the scene, for we only see the scene from over his lover’s uniformed shoulder; he lets his eyes do all the flirting. (ah, those Nimoy eyes) She has long black hair – This was probably a reference to a book I read many years ago called Spock, Messiah! (Oh how my Mom hated the sacrilegious title of that book! )
Mr Leslie yells at Spock –Since when can you Pon Farr at will?
There are more crew on the Enterprise, mostly other characters from 60s TV shows! (You see the Addams Family walking the corridor!
Khan is among the villains the Enterprise has to face – we see him lying in sickbay in his gold net overalls.
At some point there is a big battle and of course the Enterprise wins. I try to rewind it on my DVR to show it to my sister, but of course it doesn’t work.
I suspect this silly dream came about because I read about the upcoming Trek 2 movie and disappointment that the villain might be Khan. I say, bring on the new movie, I can’t wait to see it! Yet after 45 years, why do I still have the occasional Trek dream? Well, they say the things you love are always in your heart, so I’ll just leave it to that. And maybe it’s because he’s 80 now, and like someone I’ve known for so long, I know that sooner or later Nimoy will pass on to eternity, and I’d just like to know if he’s ever read this blog. Hey Leonard, you there?
