Captain America’s been keeping a to-do list of things to see, eat and read up on ever since he was, um, defrosted. And here is that list, in this screencap from a teaser for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
I’m hoping he crossed off Star Wars and left on Star Trek on account of how much Star Trek is much better than Star Wars.
As inside baseball as Trek humor gets.

Yes, that’s Captain Jane Kirk and her parallel Star Trek universe crew.
Patrick Stewart’s other great space adventure — starring as the Jade Rabbit Moon rover on The Daily Show.
(This is not Captain James A. Kirk of the USS Zumwalt. Sigh.)
Captain Jean-Luc Picard Patrick Stewart was on hand at the New York Stock Exchange, along with representatives from the Boston Police Department and Vivienne Harr, a 9-year-old girl who set up a lemonade stand to protest slavery, as Twitter debuted as a listed company, starting at $26 a share under the symbol TWTR.

I hate that Star Wars got licensed by Lego but Star Trek didn’t. So a knockoff of Lego did Trek instead. And while their products look like crap, this promotional video is pretty fabulous.
SIMON YOU MAJESTIC PIECE OF SHIT
AMPLE NACELLES IF YOU’LL PARDON THE ENGINEERING PARLANCE.
If you’ve always wanted Ricardo Montalban’s pecs from the original Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, now you can have them thanks to this pretty ingenious t-shirt.

somebody get bryan fuller involved
toronto bloggers please kidnap bryan fuller and mail him to CBS
I’ll see what I can do.
I What Who How What Huh?
Makes sense to me. Episodic TV is where Trek belongs. And what will allow this to happen? CBS (most viewed broadcast TV network) + JJ Abrams & crew (they of Lost, Fringe, Sleepy Hollow etc.) + boffo box office for the last two theatrical releases + rabid fan base - sappy Star Wars bullshit = ingredients for a next Trek generation.
I AM DYING.
