Happy Birthday, TNG!

Twenty years ago today, September 28, 1987, Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered.

Every week for the first year, Carolyn and I had her brother David over, along with friends Norm Gall and Andi, and sometimes one or two others, to watch. After the episodes — mostly, to be honest, painfully bad that first year — we headed off for pizza at the branch of Mothers’ Pizza Parlour at Steeles and Dufferin just north of Toronto.

The Mother’s chain is defunct, that was two homes ago for us, and there’ve been three more Star Trek series since. Where has the time gone?
