LOL. Not even. But I do know it’s Star Trek.
Let’s see – Classic Star Trek, ST Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Star Trek Voyager, and Star Trek Enterprise.
5 for 5 on the shows!
I told my husband I had a great idea for yesterday’s haiku and he asked “what’s the word?” and I said “paradox” and he said “you’re going to write about Star Trek, aren’t you!” 🙂
That’s one of the things I love about you, you are a Star Trek geek!
I love you too, schmoopy!
Alas, no bonus points for me. In fact, no points at all!
I think I am just starting to entertain myself with these haiku… :-p
Now I wish I had thought of that
It was the only thing I COULD think of!!
Well, I am lost here, but these are great Haiku
Thanks! Maybe you can get a tiny story out of them, even if you don’t know the show. 🙂
You are right. 🙂
I could get nitpicky and point out that it’s referred to as The Original Series (TOS) since “Classic,” well, The Next Generation is now 25 years old and is “classic” in its own sense. The TOS episode is “The Guardian of Forever”… TNG is “All Our Yesterdays” I think… I just love that you could make a haiku themed on each series. Trek writers got a little too enamored of those “temporal paradox” stories. I think all the series would have been more interesting if time travel was never included, with the possible exception of movie IV.
Seriously! TNG is the first Trek I really watched, so it is classic to me too (but you are making me feel old, so knock it off!). You are close on the episodes. The TOS is City on the Edge of Forever (The Guardian of Forever is the name of the portal). TNG is Yesterday’s Enterprise. I have to admit, it was a little overwhelming to choose episodes because there are so MANY time paradoxes!!! So I went with either 1) my favorites or 2) the easiest to put in a haiku. 🙂 Thanks for playing!!
I don’t think you are
Older than me, but Trek love
Is best geekiness
LOL. That is great. Thanks, Jason!
You’re welcome, mediocre haiku is one of my many pseudo-talents 🙂
