Endgame

I finished watching the last of the Star Trek: Voyager episodes last week, which makes me 87% complete. Only 98 episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise and then the new movie and I’ll be done. The last episode of Voyager, Endgame, was decent. I still like “All Good Things…” (from TNG) better. However, I think that Endgame is a pretty good metaphor for my life.

I’ve been out here in Colorado for the last five years on a journey of my own, lost in the Delta quadrant you might say. The end is now clearly in sight, and I’m wondering if maybe it’s the journey that matters:

“I think it’s safe to say no one on this crew has been more… obsessed with getting home than I have. But when I think about everything we’ve been through together, maybe it’s not the destination that matters. Maybe it’s the journey, and if that journey takes a little longer, so we can do something we all believe in. I can’t think of any place I’d rather be, or any people I’d rather be with.”

What You Leave Behind

It’s taken about seven months to get here, but 7,920 minutes later, I’ve finished watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It’s kind of bitter sweet, really. DS9 was a great series. But I must press on.

I’ll be starting Star Trek: Voyager, which I hope to finish sometime early next semester. Then it’s on to Star Trek: Enterprise which I hope to complete before I’m done with school. Finally, Star Trek comes out on May 8th, which is the day I graduate. Coincidence? I think not. I’m planning on going to the midnight showing of that to complete my Tour de Force.
