Star Trek and the Klingons


I, like many of you, watched the news yesterday, horrified and angry. And as a writer it’s easy to rant and rave here about what happened at the Capitol, in Washington. Yet I’m not going to do that. There are plenty of news sources already analyzing the events.

I’d like to offer a different view. It was awful, beyond words, yet I can easily see the US as being similar to Star Trek Voyager. We are a ship (a nation) with an advanced society, that has lost our way, facing unbelievable challenges, like a crippling disease.

Sometimes the struggles are within ourselves. And yet we face each incredible challenge and move forward traveling at the speed of light. We did that this past November fighting for what was right. And Joe Biden won by the largest margin since FDR. Did you know that?

And now this week we did it in Georgia. For the first time in the history of Georgia, they will have an African American pastor as a senator. And the son of Jewish immigrants as the other senator. Ain’t that something?

Yep, that’s our America! And moving forward, working on getting home at the speed of light. And one day, our Captain will be a woman, just like on Voyager!

And the Klingons? Oh those are the angry, war-like people…….And they always loose. Always. Violence always loses.

  1. Yes, you are right, but they always come back too. They get defeated, and then three episodes later they are there. I remember watching those old episodes and thinking, “Oh, yeah, there are those damn Klingons again. Don’t they ever give up?” I really enjoyed reading this post. Very creative and insightful.

  2. I was smiling over my whole face when I learned that Raphael Warnock was elected. Two weeks, Nico, and the senseless acts of deficence and dangerous stupidity will come to an end.

    1. Thank you Valentin! We are working on returning everything back to normal, and getting the top bad guy out of office! I’ll be over later to check out your site. Peace and blessings to you.
