obviously i'm looking forward (with slight wariness) to seeing star trek on saturday.
i have a myriad of reasons to be curious about this film, but one of the important ones is that one of my favorite scientists, carolyn porco, is star trek's science advisor, which guarantees some riveting scenes.
get that? carolyn porco meets star trek!
her latest installment on the captain's log, gene roddenberry meets george lucas, points to exactly that effect...
'and don't be surprised to find a scene or two in this film informed by the dazzling saturnian sights we have come to know so well. this is one movie cassini fans won't want to miss!'
yes, carolyn, i don't want to miss it!
carolyn is, of course, on the credit roll at the end of the film, but i have inside information that 'science consultant' is listed after 'romulan and klingon language consultant'.
they sure know their priorities.
