...I watched Startrek 2009 on the train, for the first time in some months \o/

The first minutes are still a tearjerker.
Pike is still smoking hot.
Jim looks great beat-up.
McCoy is grumpygrumpygrumpy. And I love him.

I feel inspired. Of course, the new ideas I have could, like, fill a whole new part of my never-ending epic.

Dammit, Jim.

Feeling like going to Fedcon, lots of DS9 guests:

Damn, watching all those interviews with the new Trek actors that lemonrocket posted is awakening the Trekkie in me. Wheeeeeeee!

There's one really bad thing about buying something in the US - the formats are different, so I always have problems with finding the right picture frames etc.

The greatest current problem is a large poster with 8 signatures (yum!), an expensive collectible that I wanted to hang up in a protected corner. Its size is 102 x 69 cm. The largest German standard frame is 100 x 70 cm. If I buy a frame that really, really fits to the poster size (including a passe-partout), it will cost me almost as much as the poster itself *palms face*

Therefore, a poll...
[Poll #1048646]

- Lovely Trek item lowered in price (very relatively seen) is mine and on its postal way. Husband smiled as I told him its story, and we agreed that we absolutely need to hang this up on a wall without direct sunlight :)) As he said, "I don't mind if you buy more beautiful things". Well - my banking accounts do mind by now!

- After fidgeting back and forth what to do with the English certificates and all, I found an agreeable solution. If the academy thinks that my English is ready for starting level 5, so be it. I therefore signed up for the track to "Certificate of Proficiency in English" (CPE) today. Since English5 is part of the certified translator curriculum, I can still decide to take the complete course in the future without any time loss :) Yay! Learning!

Coming next - work. Really! :)

Max (Kirk's old friend), Kirk and McCoy are developing a sequel of their own in my brain, duh! And I really have rl issues on my todo list today. Must. Move. Away. From. Computer!

I'm also trying to write an m/m story for [ profile] caitn on request - found an old draft and am working on it. 2000 words so far, and I hope you'll like it, Cait. It's TNG! :)

The Trek Meme everyone does :) )

For German Trekkies, rather fresh at youtube - not the best Trek parody out there (and they got the uniform colors wrong, tsk ;) but with the original German speakers! :)

And if you like the series "Heroes", check out these two songvids, especially "Invincible" (my fav):

Meet my new family member, Mr. Samsung Samtron 74V :) Only 17" but max resolution at 1280x1024px, which makes it feel like a gigantic screen. (It's only 17" because it's the external monitor for my laptop, stands on our living room table and I have to be able to watch TV next to it, LOL).

On an unrelated note, didn't work enough for money today. Duh. This doesn't correlate well!

For the fun - [ profile] polly_b wanted "Ten things that I love that start with the letter 'L'"

Ten, no, wait, only 9 L-things )

P.S.: "Closer" even got linked in the blog of one of Germany's best-known usenet personalities, Christian Köhntopp. Cool *G* And Barbara Schöneberger sings the startrek theme! (in the Quatsch Comedy Club and now at youtube).

Someone makes a mood theme and calls it Women of Startrek and there is not a single TOS woman inside?

Of course, it's everyone artistic decision, but...duh.

I bought another of those Trek snippet collections at ebay - nothing spectacular inside, however, except 8 pages out of a MAD zine 1980, featuring the Trek musical ;)

It can be found here:

I recommend to download the zip, it has the scans in full page size so that you can read the texts better :)

Auaua. Weird vid Saturday Night Life ep poking fun at conventions - with Shatner himself!

(And damn if it doesn't remind me of the two normal trek conventions I've been. Sigh. And I'm right between them fans. Double sigh.)

EDIT: Also great: the Picard Song at

And link to all songs of DarkMateria (Picard Song and more)

Hmm, also some art there - check out the Dax Equilibrium (args, now I feel like writing Jadzia/Ezri) :)
