I think the title is fairly self-explanatory, right?
Growing up a lover of all things science fiction, particularly the variety gracing the airwaves in the form of the original Star Trek, Space: 1999, Battlestar Galactica and The Six Million Dollar Man, Christmas morning often was a time to revel in my budding geekery Santa saw to it that my wish list was fulfilled in one fashion or another.
Despite being an alleged adult, I still receive the occasional geeky gift for Christmas or my birthday, and depending on the item, it can elicit feelings of giddiness rivaled only by those early morning carnage events on the Christmas mornings of my youth.
I’m not the only one, right?
If you received a particularly geeky gift this holiday season, let’s hear about it! Pics if you gottem, but they’re by no means required.
So far, the geekiest gift I’ve received is Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz. It’s a big beautiful book, compiling all of the poster art Mr. Ortiz has created to celebrate the original Star Trek series, with one poster for each of the show’s 79 episodes. As I don’t have the wall space for 79 (more) posters–at least not until I establish a permanent studio/library/museum facility as an add-on to stately Ward Manor–this book is the next best thing.
