The holiday season is so many things to so many people. Some slap anyone who dares impugn their special-snowflake belief structure with a “Merry Christmas” or even “Happy Chanukah” in a merry little chokehold. Some of us kick it with a bottle of 12-year-old single-malt scotch and DIE HARD. If Christianity happens to be your life’s guiding light, then the lead-up to Dec. 25 is a time of reflection upon the virgin birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth as our Lord and Savior, the only begotten son of God.
We happen to believe that if there’s a soul human enough to make a man after Jesus Nazareth’s heart, it would have to be the only begotten son of Sarek (with a human woman, mind you), Spock of Vulcan.
Now, don’t get us wrong: this poignant Hallmark Christmas Ornament depicting Spock’s dying farewell to Capt. James T. Kirk after absorbing enough radiation to take Bruce Banner down a peg in STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN is poignant enough in itself. Just look at it. There’s even enough red in those proud Starfleet uniforms to complement a timely Yuletide state of mind.
See, we’re creative-types, though. We press that little button and hear the late Leonard Nimoy’s weakened “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few,” and we just want to perform a little ad hoc cranial surgery that replaces William Shatner with Santa Claus and Nimoy with Jesus.
You can’t tell us Christ wouldn’t have walked proudly into that reactor core.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we have a ticket to Hell we’d like to upgrade to First Class we’d like to upgrade by finding an Easter statuette of our Lord and Savior and add a Build-A-Bear workshop voice box with David Tennant saying, “I don’t want to go!”
