Captain’s Log, Stardate 2020.8

Captain’s Log, Stardate 2020.8, USS Enterprise (NCC-1701)

On the surface of Planet IX, Trapexoid Syztem 939, our landing party was surprised by Trapexoidians into a Death Match with the Grand Champion Trapeze Trio in the Mirror Arena.

Bones and I conferred on how to get Spock into a spangled costume: an artful injection of FloraSpora21 from Omicron Ceti III did the trick. As for Bones, he didn’t suspect opiate in his Sweet Tea Mint Julep. Naturally athletic, I remained in full possession of my faculties.

Triumph! Eyes glowing, the Trapexoidians graciously endowed us with diplomatic immunity.

The appended photograph demonstrates their unique visual capabilities.

We. Were. HOT.

  1. Dear Dora,

    Any story with a title like Captains Log – Stardate___ has my attention. From Kirk to Janeway I’m a fan. Spock in a leotard is a yummy prospect. πŸ˜‰ Good one.

    Live long and prosper,

    1. Dear Rochelle,
      I was thrilled to discover that Leonard Nimoy based his hand gesture and blessing on the Orthodox Jewish blessings he remembered from his childhood. The separation of the fingers forms the Hebrew letter “Shin” representing Shaddai (“God Almighty”). Oh how I love this original series is a part of our imaginative landscape! As always, your comments are blessing πŸ˜€ Thanks for reading.
      Live long and prosper,

          1. Loved your window creation into Nimoy’s life. Sometimes mishegoss pans out to be genius, lucky for the rest of us this was so, and so Spock! πŸ™‚


I'd love to hear your thoughts.
