Geek Stuff

Big milestone in geek-genre history today. Today is the 42nd anniversary of the first release of Star Trek, back in 1966. 42 is a fun number for anyone who's a geek and read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which is why I find this amusing.
I'm not a Trekkie - regular readers will remember that I'm a Star Wars nerd, but Star Trek is one of, if not the most influential Science Fiction TV show out there, despite the fact that it only ran for 3 seasons before being canceled.
Here's a couple songs to celebrate:

Another Girl, Another Planet - Bell X1
Starfighter Pilot - Snow Patrol
