A Painting of Gene Roddenberry

Captain’s log: Stardate 202007.28. I commissioned a digital artist to do a portrait of the late Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, to pay homage to him. What makes it unique is that it is a composite of two photos, and it shows The Great Bird Of The Galaxy in the engine room of the Enterprise. I will have this framed and hang it on the wall of my office. No copyright infringement intended.

Covid 19 and Star Trek

Captain’s log: Stardate 20207.27. The semester that just ended had to be taught online only and my students had to use Netflix Korea to watch the episodes. Sadly, Star Trek II, III and IV were not available, so I had to substitute additional episodes of TOS. Next semester will also be online, but the exams are supposed to be face-to-face, unlike last semester. In other news I just ordered some Star Trek face masks from vendors on Etsy, and I had an artist use Photoshop to make me Kirk on the bridge of the Enterprise. Take a look. Will post photos of me wearing the Star Trek masks when they arrive. Live long and prosper.
