“When we have enough energy, get us out of here, apparently there is no intelligent life here on this planet!” said Kirk.

  1. I love Chekov’s comment, walking blindly staring into their communicators. All the.Star Trek series are special, love your take. mike

  2. Haha! reminds me of the news story a few days ago about putting traffic lights in the pavement so Those who can’t look up from the phone will know when to stop. 5 phasers!

  3. For all these years I waited that they’d come and now that they’re finally here I missed it. Got distracted… Love it, it’s too funny and describes our new obsessions well.
