Thanks to developments in my personal life (remember, I started this blog when I was unemployed, and then became “super employed”), and the fact that I can now watch Star Trek on Netflix, the Star Trek Challenge website will be back up and running very shortly.

I know that I made a similar announcement back in March, but a steady stream of promotions and additional work made it impossible to start writing again. Add to that my prior writing and podcasting obligations to Panels on Pages, and I very nearly shut the site down. However, my love for Trek and for sharing that love with other fans has kept my mind on resurrecting this blog for some time.

The challenge now will be not to watch and review one episode of Star Trek per day, because that very nearly broke my spirit, but instead to eventually finish every episode of Star Trek even if it takes me 5, 10, or 20 years. I’m planning on at least one review per week, and possibly other small news posts here and there.

In other news, I get to meet Leonard Nimoy in slightly over two weeks! I’m going to my first real Star Trek convention in Chicago, and the story behind the trip is pretty amazing. Look forward to that story soon!

Live long and prosper,

Quick Update

I’ve been thinking about the site a lot, and just thought I’d catch everybody up on what’s going on. I’ve finally gotten my computer somewhat fixed, although a new one is going to be a purchase in the very near future. I started a full-time job, which has drained me completely of free time and energy, especially since it’s a copywriting job. Let me tell you, writing all day and then coming home to write at night is a bit tiresome.

I’m planning on starting things up again at the pace of 2-3 reviews a week, and seeing how it goes from there. Sure, it’ll take me forever to finish the entire Star Trek library, but I guess that’s the trade-off for mental stability.

Also, thanks to the recent Netflix deal that will make Star Trek episodes available for streaming, I’ll be able to watch episodes on my TV and not have to do the weird two computer setup that I’ve been using. Yay!

Thanks for the support and see you soon,

Captain Painway
