Today is also the birthday of Gene Roddenberry, the father of Star Trek and pioneer of science fiction television. Three cheers for the Great Bird of the Galaxy!
In his honor, a quote for the day:
The rim of the star-light,
Is wand'ring in star-flight.
He'll find in star-clustered reaches
Strange love a star-woman teaches.
His journey ends never.
His star trek
Will go on forever.
But tell him
While he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.
-Gene Roddenberry, "Theme from Star Trek"
