Beyond Crewmates

While I wouldn’t call myself a huge moviegoer, most everyone knows by now that I am a huge Star Trek fan. Even so, with expectations for quality at a high after having recently watched the adorable Finding Dory, I didn’t find myself feeling hyped for the franchise’s newest installment even though its movies in particular had instilled a sense of wonder within me since my teenage years. After watching Star Trek Into Darkness, I felt mixed feelings about what it had set … Continue reading

Get a Life!

For some ludicrous reason, the programs starting in the Spring (which I thought I would have to apply to since there were only two programs in the Fall) require a separate, more meticulous application (including an entirely separate admissions test) than the ones in the Fall.

Unfortunately, I am beginning to suspect that, with my increasingly intensive studies, I simply will not have the time to effectively lead the project. Instead, … Continue reading

Indeed, We’re All Trekkies Now

Captain’s Log: Stardate 10905.9 *Cough* I mean… Oh my, where to begin? Haha, I can imagine that the ones who know me well aren’t surprised one bit to see an article on the eleventh Star Trek movie here. Indeed, it’s no secret that I’m a Star Trek fan- To be more precise, the franchise is one of the few things that can get me really worked up! So naturally, I’ve been following the development of Star Trek XI closely, and … Continue reading
