It's All About The Quatloos

This is not a blog.

INAUGURAL POSTING: Having lurked about sufficiently and noting PokerStars support of poker blogger (esp. their freeroll for seasoned bloggers!) I have decided to join the poker blog community and throw in my two Quatloos worth on poker and anything else that comes to mind. For you non-Trekkers, Quatloos was the unit of currency(?) that the "talking" brains used to wager on the outcome of gladiator-like battles staged among kidnapped aliens they called Thralls. [ST:TOS, "Gamesters of Triskelion"] Among male Trekkers, this ep. is most remembered for Shahna played by Angelique Pettyjohn. Among female Trekkers... hmmm... are there any female Trekkers?

This is a poker blog, but Star Trek is about to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and I have already purchased my Captain's Seat ticket for the upcoming Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas (17-20 Aug. 2006). No one is going to beat at a trivia contest! I am the uber-Trekker!! I'm sure poker blogger Wil Wheaton will be there. I will probably go supernova from Star Trek geekiness overload around the 2nd day.
