I Don't Want to Go to Heaven as Long as They Have Vulcans in Hell
Warp 11’s latest CD of music only gets an OK rating from me. None of the songs stood out significantly for me, unlike their previous CD “It’s Dead Jim.” Fans of thrash rock and Star Trek will likely get some smiles from the CD though. Actually, I confess to a big smile for the song title, “I Am Not Herbert,” which is in reference to Leonard Nimoy’s book, “I Am Not Spock,” and the characters in the Trek episode “They Way To Eden” who referred to those with rigid patterns of thinking as “Herbert.”
Other tracks include, “Make it So,” “Fully Functional” (a reference to Data's line to Tasha Lar, in reference to his artificial genitalia), “They Put Creatures in Our Bodies” (referring to Chekov's line about the neural parasites in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan) and “What Would William Shatner Do?”
