Met up with Gert today to play games and have general fun. He has recently acquired Star Trek Catan, and as trekkie, I, of course, must play this 😀
To stay on theme, we watched Space Station 76 tonight. It’s a weird film, black comedy, taking place on a Space Station where it revolves around the relationships between the crewmates. At first glance everything is very idyllic Which gets reinforced by the very, very 70s visual style of the movie (which makes it tie-in to classic Trek quite nicely).
As the movie begins a new first officer comes aboard because the old one left. She and the Captain don’t quite get along. We later learn that the old first officer was the lover of the Captain and left as a break-up. There’s an engineer (played by Matt Bomer, I like him) with his wife and their kid, and while the engineer is crazy about the kid, the wife is just plain crazy and sleeping with someone else. And so on.
I liked the movie, but didn’t love it.
