Captain's Log...

Stardate 20...where are we? Really, how do we keep track of the date across so many solar systems and light years when it takes years and years even for light to travel the great expanse that is space, and while we are at it, how can our communication happen instantaneously, when even at warp speed our ships take days and days to arrive at their destinations; and why isn't the food better? And why didn't we go ahead and install the spa on the Enterprise? And how come we didn't bring a dog along so we could dress him up in a little uniform and let him run around the Bridge? Oh yeah, I forgot, Zulu's allergic. Anyway...stardate 2007. Beam me up, Scotty. (Editorial note from later: What? Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue. See what happens when the International Date Line gets involved??)
