235. February 20th…Space Truckin…with Captain James T. Kirk….if you’re lucky you’ll wake up 6th or 8th…..

“Wall of beer cans” 2010

We’ve got to risk implosion. We may explode into the biggest fireball this part of the galaxy has seen, but we’ve got to take that one in a million chance. – Captain James T. Kirk

I have always…..loved watching Star Trek….especially the crises that arises while down on some other planet….there are the blatantly obvious  characters that are not leaving the planet…they will be vaporized….disappear in a maze of sound waves…or be frozen solid by some beam emitted from a rock….I really like when some strange plant gases everybody…knocks them out….James T. Kirk is the very first person to regain consciousness…and is always the very first person to regain consciousness no matter what scenario it is…..be it bugs….sound waves…plants….beautiful blonde women….it doesn’t matter….he wakes up first…followed by Spock…Bones…Sulu…Chekov…and Uhura….the rest of the crew then begins to stir….they awaken stunned…sort of disoriented….and it’s always Bones that makes some incredible discovery…that transpired while the crew was slumbering….then James Kirk….in his staccato speech….figures out what to do…of course with the logic of Mr. Spock……right there by his side….

The thing I really liked about Captain KIrk…he was a “Go for it all” sort of guy…he would jeopardize everything to prove a simple point….he never said no….and he and Uhura had the very first interracial kiss on national television….he would make Scotty say….”I‘m giving them all they got Captain” when he would force Scotty to push the engines to warp factor 8…and they were low on Dilithium crystals..or when Bones would lose his cool…and say his classic line…”For Gods sakes Jim, I’m a Country Doctor…not a miracle worker“……and through it all Captain James T. Kirk…knew everything was going to be just fine….because he…was in charge of the bridge…of the Starship Enterprise….and he knew what was and what wasn’t……

Captain Kirk knew the truth…and the truth always set him free….we as viewers….knew Captain Kirk was a stand up guy…he was honest….romantic…a tough guy…(especially when he used  his Karate chops)….witty….probably the most eligible bachelor in the galaxy…a real heart breaker…..fair…and most of all with the aid of Bones and Spock…. a Taoist…..a non action/action type of guy….think of how many times James T. is ready to fly off the handle….and Spock will throw some philosophical thought out there for Jim to ponder before acting….or Bones will make a suggestion that makes Jim take a second look…I said he is a Taoist with the aid of Bones and Spock….by himself he is a lumbering philosophical ignoramous……out to be right…but that’s why buffers like Bones and Spock….were cast into James T. Kirk’s world…..

I once saw Sulu at the New Orleans airport…..I could say nothing…I just stood there in awe…..and to think he woke up fourth or fifth…from the gas….what a lucky dog…..
