Okay. Ready for nerd-geek-fest time.


As in, study about the sun, the moon, the solar system, the milky way, the nebulas, the Orion, the edge of the Universe. And all the fancy-schmancy physics and spacetime.

And possibly hop onto a rocket and live in space. And meet with aliens and stuff.

After a while, as I grew older, I forgot about that dream. I sunk into normal teenage life.

Then, I watched Star Trek 2009.

It immediately brought back all my childhood obsessions and dreams of flying in darkness and taking pics of Mars and aliens.

I so wanted to be part of a crew of a fancy ship like the USS Enterprise and work for intellectual gain and all not to mention get to press a lot of cool buttons.

Ah, Spock, Spock, Spock. Zachary Quinto as Mr. Spock definitely rekindled my belief in meeting aliens. SPOCK FANS, UNITE! But so far I only know that Amanda and Julia and me are part of the Spock fanbase that I know.

...And I'm considered a Star Trek n00b anyway 'cos I've never seen any other Star Trek episodes or movies besides the latest one.

I'm wondering if Chris Pine as Captain Kirk has any fanbase. Frankly, I don't know if anyone I know has this weird enthusiasm for space and universe like me...

Star Trek has definitely also rekindled my interest in science fiction. I just went to the bookshop to buy Dune by Frank Herbert. It's quite lengthy, but the back cover says its a masterpiece of science fiction of the 20th century, so I'm hoping for a really good read.

And I just found out one or two more Star Trek sequels are gonnaa be release. In 2011. Yay!

I'm such a geek. But a happy geek at least.

Now to find some rocket fuel for the spaceship.
