  The Star Trek Gospels The Gospel of Star Trek. No, I'm not kidding.
A PREACHER has decided to boldly go where no cleric has gone before by writing the gospel according to Star Trek. Alyson Leslie, an Episcopalian lay pastor from Newport-on-Tay in Fife, hopes to spread the word of God by appealing to fans of the science fiction series. Her Star Trek gospel provides a list of religious and moral parables that can be drawn from episodes of the programme, which celebrates its 40th birthday this year.

Leslie has already published her Testament for Trekkies on the internet and as a book in New Zealand. She is now in talks with British publishers. The original Star Trek, which featured James T Kirk, Spock and the cantankerous engineer Scotty, began in 1966. It gained a new lease of life in the 1980s when Patrick Stewart, the English actor, took the helm as Captain Jean Luc Picard.

Go here to read the rest of it.

"To boldy go where preachers have nowhere else to go."

"Live long and witness."

"I'm a doctor, Jim, not a fundamentalist!"

- I don't think Spock's roll could even have a place in this lunacy. He would truly remain the same . . . "Highly illogical."

Thanks for the laugh. :)
