COMING: “Get a Life!” – William Shatner’s documentary on the passion of Star Trek fans, premiering July 25th on Xbox Live

I’m so looking forward to this.

William Shatner’s been working on a documentary about Star Trek fans, the Gene Roddenberry philosophy, and the passion that binds those that follow in his path. 

Named after the famous skit he did on Saturday Night Live, “Get a Life!” will will premier on Xbox Live on July 25th. (The first showing will actually be at the San Diego ComicCon on July 14th – but if you won’t be able to get down there, you can check it out on Xbox 360.)

“Get a Life!”–William Shatner’s Documentary about the Passion of Star Trek Fans

On a personal note, I want to personally thank George Lucas for bringing into focus what geek camp I belong to. After years of lackluster Star Trek sequels & pent up demand for Star Wars-anything, Star Trek brought the hammer to the science fiction world with it’s reboot… all the while Star Wars dropped the hammer on it’s disillusioned fans .  Midi-chloriansJar Jar Binks.  NOOOOOOO.  Yeah.  I said it.

In celebration of Bill’s documentary finally coming out, here’s the formula for my favorite drink from Quark’s Bar at the former “Star Trek: The Experience” in Las Vegas (R.I.P.) which I had once every year during COMDEX from 1996 until it closed.  If anyone reads this from Quark’s Bar, I LOVED YOU GUYS SOOOO MUCH, and I sat in a chair in the Hilton when I saw that it had all be torn down, and I cried.

LIQUID LATINUM (from QUARK’S BAR, STAR TREK: THE EXPERIENCE, LAS VEGAS, NV)

1 ounce – Midori Melon Liqueur
1 ounce – Blue Curacao
1 ounce – Spiced Rum

Liquid Latinum is a colored, layered cocktail – so pour your liquors to layer your flavors in this order.
