I change my wallpaper every day...

There's a point to me telling you this. When I changed my wallpaper today, I put one up that says "Let's make sure history never forgets the name Enterprise."

Now, lately we've had to worry that that just might happen. Something could go very wrong with the movie, something did go very wrong with Enterprise, and yeah, everyone's a little scared. It's a scary time.

But let's talk about X-Files for a moment.

To say it's had ups (Season 6) and downs (Season 9) would be an understatement. Tonight, though, it gets another chance, and we get another chance to believe. It's not called "I Want to Believe" for nothing, you know.

Tonight, we see the thing we've wanted for Trek happen to another franchise (one that a lot of people love with that same kind of passion that I have for Trek) and we know that this can happen for us too. It doesn't matter if the movie flops tomorrow - what matters is that now, tonight, there is a chance for a revival or a rebirth or whatever you want to call it. It's not the one we've been waiting for - 297 days, folks - but for now it represents the chance we're going to have soon.

And it's not like I don't like the X-Files. Really really love it, actually.

So even though we're not even close to the release of Star Trek - although we're not exactly far away either - take this chance to revel in the victory we're waiting for for our own franchise and hope that it foreshadows what's coming for us (assuming our movie rocks. Which it had better).

Mostly I'm writing this because I'm tired, but also excited to be alive at this time, when nerds are finally cool.
