Because Picard is awesome, that’s why!
Okay, explanation; I’m a member of the Dork Club, Wabash’s gaming club. We’re a bunch of guys who get together once a week (Wednesday) and we play various tabletop games like Warhammer 40K, Food Fight, Settlers of Catan, Magic: The Gathering, Munchkin, and in this case Star Trek: Attack Wing. It’s a time where we can kick back, relax, and laugh at each other’s misery when the Plutonian Dragon eats them or cheer when the U.S.S Enterprise one-shots every single Romulan and Klingon ship they can find.
So far the Plutonian Dragon thing hasn’t happened, but the Enterprise bit did (I got really really really lucky).
I love going to Dork Club, partially because it allows me a chance to turn my brain off for a few hours. I can goof off and be me, more or less, and I don’t have to worry about deadlines or studies and the like. I come out of Dork Club with so much tension burned off, and I think I work better when I don’t have any tension.
So yeah, shameless plug for Dork Club. Everyone should go to Dork Club. It’s fun.
