I love Sci-Fi, I especially love the Star Trek franchise. I know, that qualifies me as a total nerd, but I don't care.
This past week, details about the upcoming Star Trek XI movie directed by JJ Abrams were released - it's going to be a prequel, and will include Spock and Captain Kirk at Star Fleet Academy.
Now you might be asking yourself, what does Star Trek have to do with Vegetarianism?
Well, my dear friends, that question is easily answered in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, Lonely Among Us , when Commander Riker informs a non-human species requesting freshly slaughtered meat for dinner:
"We no longer enslave animals for food."
That's right, since food is created in replicators in the 24th Century, they are all Vegan.
I'll end my nerd-monologue with this: Star Trek XI will be released 12.25.08.
