The Eye Of The Beholder & The Jihad
Today marks a very special day in the life of this Trekkie. I would liken it to the day a young Jewish boy has his Bar Mitzvah and states that today I am a man. The Trekkie equivalent for most I suppose would be the day those nerds finally get laid but that is not what I am celebrating today. Today I ordered and got confirmation that Star Trek Enterprise Seasons 3 & 4 are on their way to my house. This means that I now own every season of Star Trek ever produced on TV and all 11 motion pictures. I know it is incredibly dorky but I am so happy that I feel like having a photo taken of me and my DVDs. I may have to take one someday to post on this blog. Other than that today was a great day.

The Eye Of The Beholder
The Enterprise is investigating the disappearance of an entire Starship crew that happened several months ago. Upon beam down Kirk, Spock, and McCoy encounter some very strange life forms and ecosystems and are finally captured by a couple of large intelligent slugs. The three men are placed in a holding cell in a gigantic zoo and soon meet the remaining crew from the missing ship. The slugs are incredibly intelligent and wish to keep the humans as exhibits. Kirk and Spock find a way to communicate with the slugs and things get a little messed up when a baby slug is beamed up to the Enterprise. The baby slug reappears and has learned the truth about the humans and all is put right.
A group of specialists from across the galaxy are assembled to help the Skor, a race of bird-like aliens, recover a missing artifact. The team assembled leave for a mysterious planet and the adventure begins. The team of faces several challenges but finally make it to the artifact and attempt to capture it but are faced with a saboteur within the group. The saboteur ends up being Char, the Skor representative. He hopes to start an intergalactic jihad to return his people to glory. Of course this doesn’t happen and all is set right in the universe again.
