An article of mine will appear in a new #StarTrek related anthology

Focusing upon Star Trek: the Next Generation, the book titled “Outside In Makes It So” is a collection of both serious and funny articles upon each episode of the iconic series. My particular article is a Shakespearean deconstruction of the episode “Next Phase” in which Geordi and Ensign Ro become invisible to their crew mates. Without giving too much away, I seek to convince the reader that the episode is based upon themes also found in Hamlet.

Details of the book, due to be released on 28 September 2017, can be found at http://www.atbpublishing.com/product/outside-in-makes-it-so-174-new-perspectives-on-174-star-trek-tng-stories-by-174-writers/

I must admit to being very excited to have this published. Star Trek was a part of my childhood. Later, in the late 1980s when Nicole and I were in the early part of our relationship, ST:TNG was a common passion that drew us together. We would come home at night and watch it together, discuss the scenarios, criticise the local channel for showing episodes in the incorrect order, and so on. Nicole and I are still together, and now we watch ST:TNG on Foxtel.

Thanks for reading this very brief post. I just had to share my excitement with you. Otherwise, I am still focusing upon hunting for jobs.

regards

Greg

    1. Thanks, David, :) It certainly was fun. I wouldn’t mind writing more critiques like that. Just have to hope that opportunities arise.


  1. Great work Greg, your talent shows through. Will this send you in new direction?


  2. Great work Greg, your talent is shining through. Will this send you in a new direction?


    1. Thanks :) I hope that I can move in new directions, find new inspirations and be the person that I wanted to be. :)


  3. Congratulations Greg! I’d love to write an article about my favourite ST:TNG episode – “Darmok”. I played in a band (in the 90s) every member of which would turn up for rehearsal later than we’d all agreed. One day, one of us let slip that he’d been late due to watching “The Next Generation” and as it turned out – so had everybody else. Good luck job hunting. I continue to draw blanks so have signed up for supply teaching work. Not what I wanted but necessary.


    1. Might I respond “Dale and Greg at ST:TNG”. :) It certainly was an addictive show. Years ago I did casual teaching. Didn’t mind it too much as no homework to mark. :)


  4. Congratulations Greg! Well done sir I am very happy for you. live long and prosper


    1. Thanks. A new beginning awaits. :) Peace and long life :)


    1. Thanks Anne :)
