Yea! Another day, another too cool for school Google doodle. I love that this one combines both Star Trek and Sesame St. imagery.  

The link is, of course:
OK, I admit it, I am a die-hard Trekkie. I grew up watching endless reruns of Star Trek, my imagination completely immersed in Gene Roddenberry’s brilliant creation.

Today’s Star Trek doodle is, and Mr. Spock said it best, “Fascinating.” Built using modern web technologies, this beautiful, interactive, multi-scene doodle takes all of us... where no one has gone before. Every scene has hidden surprises you absolutely have to discover for yourself, especially the fate of the Redshirt. A team of outstanding designers and engineers, and numerous Star Trek fans at Google, got really creative with this one.

Working on search at Google has brought me ever so close to realizing my childhood dream of turning science fiction into reality; and Star Trek has played a special role in my journey. Yes! The destiny of search is to become the Star Trek computer, a perfect assistant by my side whenever I need it.

I hope you enjoy today’s magical doodle, and to all my fellow Trekkies, I say... live long and prosper.

A friend just msged me asking if I'd seen this, which I hadn't.  Pretty neat!  Also makes me feel old since the year I really got into Star Trek not long after TNG started it was the 20th anniversary which was all the rave.
Uh, I watched the original when it was on TV in 1966. 
+William Shotts I wasn't born until about 10 years after the original series aired :-D  I did watch it in reruns though when I was a kid plus I loved the animated series.  A cousin of mine who was a huge Trekkie showed me an article about Star Trek IV in a magazine in the early 80's when they were filming it, then I convinced my parents to get it for me on VHS when it was released... and the promo for TNG had me hooked from the very first second.

I still remember that night saying up late watching Farpoint which came on like at 11:35pm here, and yeah I can honestly say it changed my life :-D  Not to sound geeky, well maybe I am sounding geeky, but TNG was on the air until right before I graduated high school... then DS9 and VOY where there through college and beyond.  It's just always been part of my life...
