Hallowed be thy Script. They Movie come,
Thy Work be done, on TV as it is in Fandom.
Give us this day our beloved Episode, and
Forgive us our bloopers, as we forgive those
Who blooped before us. And lead us not into
Mediocrity, but deliver us from Cancellation:
For thine is the Hugo, and the Emmy, and the
STAR TREK forever. Live Long & Prosper. Amen."
