Geek Alerts

One thing you have to say for geeks-- we're terribly creative as a general rule of thumb. So, as the Official Star Trek Convention opens up in Vegas to celebrate the series 40th anniversary, and Comedy Central prepares a roast of Bill "Denny Craine!" Shatner, it seems only right to highlight a Star Trek geekitude I have recently run across.

Star Trek 2.o on the Gamers Network. What fun. They run the episodes from the original (Kirk and Spock) series--in order!-- with CNN like frames around the outside. The frames include little nuggets about the current episode, stats on things like "Kirk kicks butt", and MST3K snarkiness from online viewers/commentators. And, of course, the Spock Market.

I haven't tried it yet, but I may have to abandon any pretense of being a normal, functioning adult and submit to my inner geek by signing up.
