TNG music plays as TNGEnterprise soars through rocks. Picard's voice comes through to start the chill: "Space, the final frontier -- these are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission..." We cut to TOSEnterprise and Kirk picks up the chill: "To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations." Now we're to ENTEnterprise, and the chills stop a bit because they didn't give Bakula enough fancy stuff in his voice to make him sound as cool and sonorous as the other two do. "To BOLDLY go where no man has gonebefore." It was a nice moment; I just WISH -- at this last gasp of the show -- that they could have made Bakula as cool-sounding as the other two. Well, it just goes to show -- you can wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one gets filled first. Sigh. Goodbye, Star Trek -- visit often.
Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker never leaped home.
