Daddy Steve: While prowling around my favorite vintage shop the other day, I picked up a remnant of Star Trek-themed fabric. It's a rather fanciful (Daddy John says 'questionable') depiction of the original 1960s series.
Everybody at Gregoropolis enjoys the many incarnations of Star Trek, but Kaveh and Patrick are definitely the biggest fans. They were very excited by our new find.
Kaveh: This is so cool!
Patrick: Ahead, Mr. Sulu. Warp Factor Two!
Patrick: Hey, where did you go?
Kaveh: It's my 'cloaking device!'
Patrick loves the original series (TOS to Trekkies); his absolute favorite character is Mr. Spock. He appreciates Spock's devotion to logic and rational thinking. Patrick always says that if everyone were just a bit more logical, the world would be a better place. I can't argue with that...
Patrick: Live long and prosper.
Kaveh is partial to The Next Generation (TNG). His favorite character is the ship's counselor Deanna Troi (Daddy John calls her Counselor Cleavage). Kaveh appreciates Troi's calming manner and her ability to help people get to the root of their problems. He wants to be a counselor and help people when he grows up.
Kaveh: She's very wise and caring.
Just as Captains Kirk and Picard relied on the advice of their respective crews, I asked Kaveh and Patrick what we should make out of the fabric. Blankets? A wall hanging? Perhaps a play-mat? Bear in mind that it's not a big piece and Daddy Steve's sewing skills are rudimentary, at best.
Patrick: It's only logical to consider all possibilities.
Kaveh: You should examine your feelings; what do you think is best?
These two make a good crew!
