We're Boldly Going into Star Trek Week

2016 is the 50th anniversary of Star Trek! To celebrate one of the greatest science fiction franchises of all time,* I'm dedicating a whole week to the crew of the Starship Enterprise.**

Today's strip of course is a reference to "Mirror, Mirror" the classic episode from season two where Mr. Spock grows a Van Dyke beard and Kirk, Bones, Scotty, and Uhura travel to a parallel universe. This parallel universe was revisited to great success in future episodes of ST:DS9 and Enterprise (but you already knew that).

Check back Thursday and Friday for more Star Trek gags!

*The only other possible candidate is Star Wars. I love Doctor Who and a bunch of other sci-fi, but honestly these two are head and shoulders above everything else.

**And of course, the crews of Deep Space Nine and the Starship Voyager.
