The Wrath of Khan

Captain’s Log: Stardate 201811.30. Today we watched Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and learned about what Jeremy Bentham and Nietzsche would say about this outstanding movie. I remember seeing this at age 17 back in ’82 when it was released, with my mom and dad. The ending had me all choked up, and even now it still triggers an emotional response. Let’s just say I could not be a utilitarian like Spock. I also received today this portrait with me as Admiral Kirk and two of my students as Spock and McCoy. Live long and prosper.

Me as Adm. Kirk from ST:TMP

Captain’s Log: Stardate 201809.12. Here’s another digital painting of me as Kirk, this time from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I love this uniform and have good memories of the film, which I saw when I was in high school in Los Angeles. Not as great as The Wrath of Khan, but a masterpiece in its own way. The art was done by Scott Jackson. “The human adventure is just beginning.”
