November Column up at Far Sector

Hey folks, my November column is up at Far Sector. You can find it here. It's a meditation on Star Trek's 39th birthday.

Here's a sample.

"Star Trek, the venerated sci-fi TV series and world cult phenomenon, just turned thirty-nine in September. By most reckonings not based on denial, this is—officially—middle age. So the Great Bird of the Galaxy’s legendary creation, birthed on September 8, 1966, no longer remains a spring chicken, and no longer may boast that it’s the hip and happening thing in pop entertainment. And—in fact—for the first time in eighteen years, nobody in Hollywood is exploiting the property on television."

So when you get a chance, go check it out and see what you think.
