Captain’s log, stardate 202107.16. Another online semester is over (I taught two Star Trek classes this time) and I received very good feedback from my students, well above the departmental and university average. In the news, I am pleased to present the work of a new artist, who has depicted me as Kirk (with a beard) on the bridge. I know the panels in the background are not accurate, but I think he captured my essence quite well. Live long and prosper.
