Ensign, Hand me your Phaser! (If He Only Knew)

I’m going to try something a little new with the blog today and want everyone to come back here to let me know what you think!

I’ve spent my summer immersed in podcasting and came across the audio poem “Ensign, Hand me your Phaser! (If He Only Knew)” by Garland L. Thompson Jr. on After listening to this poem, I checked out and, sure enough, Garland Thompson played Transporter Technician Wilson in “The Enemy Within” and “Charlie X.” I e-mailed Garland L. Thompson Jr. a couple of weeks ago to see if he or his dad would like to write something for this blog, but I haven’t heard back from him. Since we are running out of time, I’m going to provide a link to the audio file of his poem, so we have time to discuss it before the big event. So, please listen to it and then come back here to comment! Oh, and I’m also going to copy it onto my iPod and bring it to Seattle so Nichelle Nichols can listen to it, too!
