    What’s Jason having in mind making Paige watch instead: “Battlestar Galactica,” “Dr. Who,” what? I don’t watch the sci-fi nor “Dawson.” Well, I used to watch “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” back in the day.

    DSN wasn’t as bad as everybody said. I liked it. Well at least until they put Mr. Woof in. Down, Woof, down!

    I loved watching ST:DSN followed by Babylon 5 on Sunday nights on UPN-44, San Francisco. Especially after they put Worf into the first one.

    Two space stations in a row, bases for two epic interstellar wars…what more could I ask for?

    (I never saw Dawson’s Creek. I have no idea what I missed. For that matter, I’ve never seen the new Battlestar Galactica either.)

    But what Jason’s watching is reruns of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Paige may now panic.

    cdward, as a fan of Hitchhiker’s, I find your comment hilarious! (Course, if he really WERE watching reruns, I’d be on the couch next to him.:)

    Funny story, there really is a Dawson Creek, in British Colombia, Canada.

    My grandparents were driving to Alaska because my grandfather had just gotten an army position there training new recruits on satellite technology. (This was in the 1960s.) Interesting this was, my grandmother had 3 kids in diapers at the time, and they made the whole trip without much fuss. A lot of exciting things happened on that trip (they were driving all the way from Florida) but my favorite story was about when they were trying to find Dawson Creek, BC.

    My grandfather, being a man, and a man from New Jersey, what’s more, didn’t need no stinkin’ directions. So he’s driving down the Alcan Highway, which at that time was still under construction, in pitch black looking for Dawson Creek to stop for the night. They drove for miles without seeing anything. Finally, my grandmother pointed out a small cluster of lights ahead, and finally urges my grandfather to pull over and ask how to get to Dawson Creek.

    The lights turned out to be some sort of outpost or something. My grandfather walked to the first door, and pounded on it. A bleary eyed man answered, and, seeing my grandfather, and the jeep behind him, dropped his jaw nearly to the ground. He stared with wide eyed amazement at what he saw. My grandfather began rambling on about getting to Dawson Creek. The stranger interrupted him, mumbled something about Dawson Creek being 30 miles back, and grabbing my grandfather by the lapels asked him how on earth he got to this out post.

    My grandfather shrugged “We drove.”

    “Drove?! You can’t drive! There’s no road out here! They fly us in here by helicopter!”

    Turns out my grandfather had found a ledge along the edge of the mountain barely wide enough for the jeep. He managed to drive it in pitch black without falling hundreds of feet to the valley below. What’s even more of a miracle is that they managed to drive back without falling, find Dawson Creek. and continue their journey to Anchorage.

    There were many other exciting stories on that drive, but they’ll wait for another time.

    Dawson’s Creek? Let’s see what was running on the Sci Fi channel then? (Not name ScyFy) We used to think of the Sci Fi as Trekkie label and used SF for the real hard core, Heinlein, Asimov, Bradbury, Sturgeon fare. Lety’s see, an Outer Limits rerun for Jason? The War of the Worlds rip-off with Eddie? The Invisible Man rip-off? You can still get TNG on there now so check the listings. I guess it’s cheaper to run new trashy horror movies with Tara Reid than to run the classics or blitz us with better stuff. Eureka Forever! Was this supposed to be about the cartoon?

    TrapperJohn: Mr. Woof is what Lwaxana Troi calls Mr. Worf.
