Last week a trek week

Why did we do an entire week focused on Star Trek? Well for one thing it's a big geek event we thought Roy and Jay and company would be focused on this movie. Secondly, apparently Star Trek had some influence on my choice to become a sf writer. Thirdly, the gags just seemed to flow. Forthly, I don't really have a forth thing, I just wanted to write forthly.

Well I certainly enjoyed them - especially the one with Carolina!

I commented on the previous post about it, but how is it that Roy didn't have a portable internet device he could use to read Working Daze while he was camped out for Trek? Also, how did you and Roy like the movie?

I love Star Trek as much as the next geek, but why are you re-drawing comics you already did? The Vulcan nerve pinch ark was already done back in October 2006. It started with Roy being laughed at and him teaching Rita. As a matter of fact, today's comic (Spock never taught Kirk) is almost identical with Rita pinching Jay (Oct. 5, 2006). I won't ruin the ending for the people who haven't been following Working Daze as long.

The simple truth is sometimes I like to repeat gags I think are especially fun so new readers will get to see them. It's fun for them and makes it a little easier on Scott and I. We do try to twist new material. There will be a twist at the end.

Scott Adams repeats with Dilbert sometimes too. Speak did forget that a week or two earlier there was another repeat with Jay and the wishing well.
I do seem to recall a scene (in one of the movies I think) where Kirk mentioned wishing Spock could teach him the pinch and Spock replying that he had tried. Since I can't name the movie or episode I guess I can't be counted as too reliable tho.
