As happens on occasion, the fine folks over at StarTrek.com have once again invited me into their little slice of ethereal space for my own patented brand of inane babbling. With the holiday shopping season in full swing, I found a way to wrap up 2018 with a new installment of my irregularly recurring series for them, “Ten for Ward.”
For those of you just tuning into the program in progress, it’s like this: Every so often, I’m invited to provide a list of ten favorite (and hopefully interesting) Trek-related whatevers based on…well…whatever I can come up with at the time my editor reminds me of those embarrassing photos he has of me.
For this latest outing, I once again took to my Facebook page and posed a question to my followers there: “What one thing from anywhere within the Star Trek universe would you want as a gift?” Meaning, if they could receive a particular piece of technology or an alien artifact, or perhaps the opportunity to travel to a specific destination or meet an individual, and so on, what would they pick?
You probably can guess some of the answers….
(That’s a Universal Translator in the middle, for those wondering.)
Likewise, a few of the ideas were outside of the box and even thought-provoking; just what you want from a group of fun and passionate Star Trek fans, amirite?

As always, these columns aren’t intended to be anything resembling a “definitive list” for anything, so feel free to offer up your own suggestions in the comments, either here or at the main article.
