I’m not someone who gets as excited about science-fiction space shows as many other science bloggers, but I am a fan of the current Battlestar Galactica and, especially, of Star Trek: The Next Generation. But there’s one man who stands out as the hero of Star Trek: TNG, and it’s the seasoned, savvy, courageous and confident Captain Picard:
Now Patrick Stewart is one cool guy, but he’s nothing compared to the starship captain he played. Back in 2001, a band named Dark Materia made a techno song about Captain Picard called The Picard Song, and for me, the combination of bad techno, sound bites, and random inside references make this song a hilarious classic. Dark Materia is cool enough to post their song for free, and I’ve got it here for you. Enjoy!
