For STAR TREK, fifty years old,

Not just alien women were bold…


Embarrassingly fine,

Had a character starting out cold.

Would an aspiring poet confess

As to which his fave actress…

Doctor Crusher

(You didn’t dare hush her)

Was high on his list, no less.

Then look a Catherine Janeway,

A strong woman Captain in play…

When Tom Paris berzerked

By some magic quirk,

You’d be who took her away!

Would I date a Beta-Zed?

Would she put up with what’s in my head?

Her “Imzadi”

Fits her to a “T”,

But Worf has a chance, it’s said!
