Celebrate Independence Day with Brent Spiner… and the Rest of the Crew
We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate… our Independence Day!
And in doing so, we remember Brent Spiner, who tragically died on July 4th, 1996, when an alien he was dissecting regained consciousness and choked him to death with a tentacle, but not before raping his brain and using him as a glorified smoker’s voice box.
Well, hang on… Am I getting things mixed up somewhere? I never can tell.
Anyway, for all you Star Trek fans out there (and I know you’re out there, especially you good ol’ STOAway Team fans), the best way to celebrate July the 4th is by watching Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager, which are now on Netflix Watch Instantly! (Look, I know there are a lot of Voyager haters out there, but get over it, she’s a female captain, who cares. Go hop in around Season 3 if you want to skip some of the slower content and get to the good stuff.) These shows join the original Star Trek, which has been on Netflix Watch Instantly for some time, so go get you some Trek!
Oh, and I suppose Star Trek: Enterprise got added too. For what THAT’S worth.
