Day 25 - Merry Christmas! I got so excited when talking about today's Star Trek: The Next Generation episode that I forgot to give a summary of what happens in the episode. Ah well, you can always go and watch it (and I strongly encourage you to do so as it's one of my absolute favourites)!

Day 21 - today's lovely feeling requires a sandy beach, and today's Star Trek: The Next Generation episode explores grief and revenge (not very festive themes, sorry!). Annoyingly I say 'terraformers' a couple of times when I should have said 'colonists'. They are very different things, sorry!
