This poem was originally submitted to us back in 1997 for our paper fanzine The Final Frontier.
I was a Star Trek extra
Stand here! Walk over there!
The best part I ever got
Was playing a corpse on a stair.
I am a Starfleet groupie
Never ever seeing enough
Withdrawal occurs when programmers
Put on all that sporty stuff.
The day came, I really had made it
I was to stand next to HIM
Playing the unknown crewman
Bones soon said, “He’s dead Jim!”
