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 202103.5. Good evening. I would like to present my artist’s latest work from Star Trek. It’s based on a public domain black and white photo, and I believe this could be the first colourised version. Kirk and Yeoman Rand.
Captain’s Log: Stardate 202102.20. In addition to Star Trek TOS, TNG, Voyager, Picard and Lower Decks, I am a fan of the short-lived animated series (TAS) from the early 1970s. I note that TAS is available on Netflix Korea, and certain episodes like Yesteryear are mentioned in the readings assigned to my class, so I just might assign an episode or two from the series as extra credit. Anyway, here’s a painting of me as Kirk in the TAS style. Hope you like it. I think it’s a pretty good likeness.
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 202102.6. Demand for my Ethics of Star Trek class has gone way up, and the university has asked me to teach an extra class next semester, and naturally I said yes. I checked the registration figures for both of my classes and there are already enough students in each. So far, it’s only seniors and juniors, but the numbers will go up when sophomores and freshmen are allowed to enrol. In other news, I recently purchased a 3D printed TNG PADD and can’t wait to receive it. Speaking of PADDs, here is a message I would like to send to my students. Enjoy and have a good day!
