“Mission patches are a really interesting art form. They capture the imagination, the significance, and the excitement of something that represents the work of thousands of people, including a handful of brave souls who risked their lives to challenge the frontier.” – Michael Okuda

A collector of mission patches since his childhood, Michael Okuda is known for designing NASA mission patches, as well as for his work on Star Trek. His favorite mission patch is Apollo 11. What’s yours?

We’re honored that Michael designed the mission patch for ‪#‎RebootTheSuit‬: http://bit.ly/RebootTheSuit

God, I love Star Trek! Pat and I just returned from a concert at Wolf Trap. The National Symphony Orchestra performed the music of Star Trek 2009. I wonder if these are done for some of the older films.

Set phasers to “stunned” as you read the people's history of #StarTrek​
When it comes to the big guns of sci-fi there's almost none bigger than the Star Trek franchise. Beaming up on our television screens long before the heyday of video games, we've been lucky enough to see some great and fun interpretations of Trek universe over the years, from home computers to the arcade to home computers again to consoles. Boldly go with us as set phasers to "stunned" as we take a look back at some of the highlights and notable ...

This is going to be me after work. It's been a helluva month. All I really want to do tonight is kick back and watch Star Trek.

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”

Justice Kennedy
In a landmark victory for gay rights, a divided Supreme Court ruled that state prohibitions on same-sex marriage violate the Constitution.

Nothing unreal exists.
Introduction
I love humor, fun and wit. People have described me as kind, gentle, composed, reasonable, logical, intelligent and polite. 

I love science fiction, especially the various incarnations of Star trek and the Stargate series. Long distance bicycling is my passion! I'm also fascinated by aviation, Google (Android), space and technology.

I've been in a relationship with a wonderful and crazy man for more than 14 years and we share our home with two adorable cats named Patty and Selma.

Completed 75% of the Seagull Century ride while being undiagnosed with lyme disease.
If you want the equivalent of a banquet frozen TV dinner... come to IHOP. At least you won't have to open the box, but you will pay more.

Not the best barbeque I've had. Screaming kids and generally bad service.
