The Next Generation

"You know, Star Trek: The Next Generation wasn't the first sequel series to the original. There was also Star Trek: The Animated Series, but it's not considered canonical."

"No? Why not?"

"Probably because it sometimes had stuff from outside the usual Star Trek universe, like Larry Niven's Kzin."

"Whose what?"

"The Kzin. They're a feline warrior race, like the Kilrathi in Wing Commander."

"That awful movie with Freddie Prinze Jr.? What's the name of that sitcom he's in now?"

"Chico and the Man: The Next Generation."

I really thought he'd choose "She's All That: The Animated Series" over that.

Well, I can't help but like ST:TAS, since they had a chracater called Commander Thelin. That's just about the only time that my surname has been used in any pop cultural work whatsoever.

I feel compelled to mention that the eponymous character in the sitcom Mr. Belvedere had Lynn as his first name, as does Sean Astin's martinet CTU director on this seaon of 24. Lynn is thus demonstrably not a good name for a man, just as one would expect.
