Day 23 of Write31Days:
When I was about 6 years old, Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered on tv. I remember clearly the first few episodes to this day. When Q first appeared to wreak havoc upon the Enterprise and when Tasha Yar was killed in the line of duty. There are lots of great memories around TNG and all the iterations of the Star Trek from the 80’s onwards.
See, Sci-fi played a large role in my family’s bonding. Though I’d say we’re more Trekkies than Star Wars fans, we devoured all of it with equal pleasure. I’ve been to Star Fests and Renaissance Festivals. We definitely do Geek, as the print says, in my family.
Although Geeks don’t rule the world (yet), they are more integral to the world than most would think. Without the imaginations of Gene Roddenberry, J.R.R. Tolkien or J.K. Rowling, the world wouldn’t want to “go where no man has gone before” or know how to de-wand another wizard (Expelliarmus!) There’s a great reason for all the love of the otherworldly… it’s all about the hero’s journey.
It’s about the boy who saves his world from an evil wizard. Or a little hobbit saving his world from utter darkness and chaos. For most of us in our daily lives, we’ll not likely be saving the world any time soon. But we can tap in to that courage and power through the stories of others. No, we Geeks may not rule the world but we are the soul of it and keep the courage of humanity alive in our ever-optimistic hearts.
So go ahead… own your Geek. Tell me what you Geek mythology you live by in the comments below.
P.S. If any of you know where I can buy this print – Please let me know!
