Google doodle: red alert!

When a friend alerted me to today’s Google doodle, she called it “possibly the most epic doodle yet!” As Mr. Spock would say: Indeed.

Honoring the 46th anniversary of the premiere of Star Trek: The Original Series, the doodle somehow captures the look of the Enterprise’s bridge crew even within the constraints of…letters. I would never have guessed that an L could look so much like Mr. Sulu.

If you’re a Trek fan of any sort, you’ll love clicking around this doodle. (I particularly enjoyed the inside joke about the poor redshirt.) You can start by clicking the screencap above, and make sure your sound is on.

    From the very first episode…. We didn’t even own a TV at the time. My father was fiddling around on the TV band on our radio and we heard, “Space, the final frontier…”. We listened to the entire show. Coincidentally, the next week, he brought home the first television our family ever owned in time for us to watch the second episode aired. Happy memories.

    That was great! We found the trouble with tribbles hatch and did you see the security guard sweating when he was on the transporter pad? It’s like he knew his time was up. Sure enough–poor guy got hit no matter what was used–sticks, stones, projectile weapon. All that was missing was the Doctor to say, “He’s dead, Jim.”
