My father just alerted me to an obituary for Alexander Courage; Composed Theme to TV Show 'Star Trek'. Mr. Courage, who died today, had said that the theme was "marvelous malarkey," which seems spot-on to me.
What cheers me is that my dad's the third person who's sent me a Star Trek tidbit this rather dreadful week.
[News flash--make that four!]
(Plus Kellie e-mailed that Serenity, the Firefly movie, is playing at the Riverview this June 19-21.)
Btw, I would hereby like, for future reference, to formally request a troupe of parrots dancing to the original Star Trek theme at my funeral.

Maybe I should broaden my convention-going and see if anyone has cornered the rental market in dancing-parrot-troupes for funerals.
Just think--they could wear little Star Trek outfits--or whatever the bereaved (or deceased) wants.
