Let me just preemptively say that the Star Trek Twitter community is amazing! I’ve interacted with many a scientist community on that platform, and so far Trekkers and Trekkies feel the least toxic and most welcoming.
I came home early from work yesterday to the power being out. I had some connectivity through weak cell service and was amusing myself looking at Twitter when I saw a post calling on fans to record themselves saying their favorite Star Trek quote. It didn’t take me long to decide:
It was really fun and pushed me out of my comfort zone. I really do not like taking pictures of myself or recording myself any more. It was exciting to challenge myself and see others do the same.
Update: got up the guts to get over my double chin and do another video
