Star Trek – Amok Time


Readers!

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

A Saturday pause: In memory of Leonard Nimoy.

T’pau: “Live long and prosper, Spock.”
Spock: “I shall do neither. I have killed my captain — and my friend.”

    Good choice, Bob.

  • I haven’t read Mr. Nimoy’s autobiographies, but I hope he was proud of the enormous effect ‘Star Trek’ had in influencing young people to pursue STEM studies. Two things I remember from my early childhood are ‘Star Trek’ and the Apollo program, and both had a direct influence on my decision to attend engineering school. I recall watching science/tech documentaries in the 80’s and 90’s, and when engineers and scientists were asked why they got into their field, the answer was nearly always some variation of ‘Star Trek’. Mr. Nimoy was part of the engine that made that machine go.

    Mr. Nimoy was talented in many areas, but to be remembered as Spock is a high honor.

  • Watched the episode for the fortyeleventh time. That stuff never gets old.
