1. Agreed about the “Lost” bit about buying daddy’s company; I expected

fade into a commercial for Massengil.
For heaven’s sake, who thinks of Will Decker before Matt Decker? That’s
like being asked to name a captain and coming up with Janeway before Kirk.
Of course, in a parallel universe, Matt Decker did not give his life in
vain; he ended up in Southern California in the 90s, married to the woman
who was the consort of evil Kirk in the bearded-spock-dimension.
I’m pretty sure you know what I’m talking about, which is why I mention
But you might not be aware of Star Trek: New Voyages, a homebrew show that

such fan-generated shows; the other is Starship Exeter, is done by some
people in Texas, one of whom is the brother of my paper’s mailroom guy.

New Voyages not only built the set of the Enterprise bridge, they got D.
C. Fontana to write an episode, and Walter Koenig AND William Windom, the
original Matt Decker from “The Doomsday Machine,” reprised their roles.
You can find it on YouTube. Of course. Or at
