Captain’s Log: Stardate 202103.11. Here’s a minimalist portrait of actress Gates McFadden, who played Dr. Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation. When I tweeted her about my class, she replied “How wonderful! The world certainly needs ethics.”
Captain’s Log: Stardate 202102.14. Since I am now teaching two classes on the ethics of Star Trek, I have contacted the campus bookstore to make sure they order enough copies of our textbook. In other news, I present an oil painting me as a TNG admiral from season 1. I always liked this uniform and hope you do too. Live long and prosper.
Captain’s Log: Stardate 201811.14. Greetings, TNG fans. Here I am as an older man without glasses portraying Admiral William Riker from the TNG series finale, “All Good Things”. I never expected Riker to make admiral given that he had turned down several opportunities to command his own ship so he could stay on the Enterprise.
Captain’s Log: Stardate 201807.27. A new portrait of me as Commander Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation. I think the artist, Scott Jackson from Vancouver, Canada, did a really good job. I welcome your feedback. Live long and prosper.
Captain’s Log: Stardate 2018:07.01. Happy Canada Day! Now this is something I can get behind! A possible animated Star Trek TNG revival with Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard? Make it so! Click here to read about it! Attached is a photo of the man himself. Make it so!
