I dreamed I was reading the novel prequel leading into Star Trek into Darkness as well as the last book to feature Captain Picard. I was waiting for the bus and these books were really heavy for some reason. I kept dropping them.
Patrick Stewart was also waiting for the bus. He lived in my neighborhood! I tried not to freak out but sat with him in the back. Of course as I sat down I dropped the books again. He was nice enough to pick them up for me. I asked if they sent him a copy of his last book and he said no.
The whole bus got into a discussion about Star Trek (mainly the original series) he didn’t say much. But I did.
Afterward he came to my house and started asking questions about what I hoped to do. Somehow I gave the response that I wanted to teach so I could start a family. It’d be easier that way than if I waited until I got published.
Meanwhile the plot of the STiD prequel was playing out and Kirk and Spock were serving under Pike and not playing nice. I was amazed at how many product placements/ads the 24th century had. (At one point Spock drinks a Miller Lite!) I explained to Patrick that must have been how JJ had such a large budget to work with.
