Watching Spock singing ‘Bitter Dregs’ is like seeing your grandfather trying to break dance.
Somehow, however, the series that produced this, that morphed between high camp soap opera and philosophical science fiction has managed to generate a decades old cult following that has a better degree of social cohesion than many religions and without the internecine strife. Perhaps it’s precisely because people take Star Trek seriously but with a sense of humor that is absent among true zealots.
Somewhere in the universe, there will always be a place for the ‘vulcan harp award’ for squeamishly bad performing arts.
