I just realized that Kirk was a blogger. Every episode begins with a time-stamped blog entry, "Captain's Log, Stardate..." The show is really just for our benefit. In the future, Kirk's bosses on Earth will be using an RSS reader to keep tabs on the Enterprise crew and their shenanigans. So that means in the future, Shellen will be signing a deal with the United Federation of Planets to use Blogger for all their Captain's logs. Nice, get on that Shellen.
