I’ve been a fan of Star Trek for as long as I can remember, so it’s no wonder that whenever I have to make tough decisions – big or small, business or personal – I think about how my favorite Star Trek characters would react and try to incorporate their strengths into mine.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you might know reviving Star Trek: Dimensions is my annual New Year’s Resolution, right along with re-write Psychotic Resumes. I’ve said it so often it’s almost a joke now, but this time – it’s for real (both of ‘em).
