I’ve titled this strip what Joe should have said in the last panel, if I’d actually known anything about Star Trek.

I’ve never known anything about Star Trek, but all my friends did.  Did you know that in middle school I got invited to a birthday party with a Star Trek costume theme?  I knew only Kirk and Spock, but of course those were taken already, so I got told I should come as Wesley Crusher.  I had no idea who that was.  But I did as they asked.  There wasn’t an Internet back then, so I had to go off their vague description.

Twenty years later, I’m on a beach in Aruba with Wil Wheaton and his wonderful family.

Life is strange.
