I always get chocked up with emotional nostalgia whenever I see a Star Trek movie featuring the original cast. I love all the Star Trek franchises (I haven’t seen any episodes of Deep Space 9 yet) but the original one will stand apart because it was more character driven than the others.
I can’t wait for the new Star Trek movie even though I think its a mistake to recast the original guys. You just don’t do that. This blog will try to find out more about the build up to the most anticipated Star Trek movie ever!

I found this link at the Dan’s website that lets you know what other people accomplished at what age. So you type in your age and see what others have done at the same age as you and you get all depressed and stuff. No, kidding. So, I took a look and here’s what it popped up for the age of 31 –
At age 31:
French Egyptologist Jean Francois Champollion deciphered the Rosetta stone.
British physician Thomas Wedgwood produced the first photograph.
Eli Terry produced clocks with interchangeable parts. He also introduced the free-trial, no-money-down sales method.
Gregory Pincus achieved in-vitro fertilization of rabbits. Later he invented the birth control pill.
Dennis Kucinich was the youngest person ever elected to lead a major American city (Cleveland).
Hmm, not very impressive and I have never heard of any of these people before. So I’m ok!
The Ottawa Senators have had an up & down affair since beating Detroit on the 12th of this month. Two nights ago, the Sens beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 8-4, in a game that saw Daniel Alfredsson score 3 goals and 4 assists for 7 points! Fellow top linemate Jason Spezza had 2 goals and an assist, while Antoine Vermette, Dean McAmmond & Randy Robitaille had the other 3 goals. Senators D Wade Redden had his 300th career assist on Vermette’s goal.
This was the first win after 3 losses. A 3-5 loss to Florida, 1-6 to Philly & 0-2 loss to Tampa Bay. Before that Ottawa had won 5-1 at home against the Carolina Hurricanes. Before that win and the one against Detroit there were loses to Washington 2-4 & a 1-3 loss to the New York Islanders.
Antoine Vermette had 3 goals during this period.
