For us, this week will be like watching Data watching a kettle boil. If we had an internal chronometer, we’d turn it off. If we had a Delorean, we’d be 88mph into Friday.
The economics of the future may be somewhat different but for those of living pre WW3, when going to a Star Trek event we have to watch our income.

Not too sure about their shoes, but this pair oozes fabulous Captain with Starfleet colours and a tribute to Qo’noS:

Captains log, supplementary.
Continuing the mission of making a TNG skant. I decided to cheat a little, Kirk style. Rather than make the skant I adapted the pattern to make the shell of the dress. This would have the greater chance of success….
