Live Long, Prosper, and Watch Star Trek This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

What is the best TV program ever?
Why, it is Star Trek, you uncultured fool.
Mister Shatner would agree it's better.
Data's cat would say it is really cool.
Enterprise's engines may be offline,
But Scotty, in time, will get them running.
They might collide with a Romulan mine,
But the ship's warp core will keep on gunning.
Should Captain Picard's shields begin to fail,
The Borg's intentions are quickly revealed.
If you offend Kirk, he'll give you a hail;
Then he'll phaser you until you're congealed.
You might think Klingons are really absurd,
But liking Trek does not make me a nerd.

Um, interesting topic to put in a sonnet. And yes, Star Trek does not make a person a nerd.
