The Life of Riley -By Rick Austin @EvolvedRick

Personal log: Lt. Kevin Thomas Riley, Stardate 2820.5 Well, it looks like I’m in hot water again. No surprises there. I swear, sometimes I think that if I didn’t have bad luck I wouldn’t have any at all.

But that’s where the story starts, and it’s quite an odd one. After this brief intro, the film flashes back to where the previous Star Wreck apparently ended, with dim-witted Captain Pirk and his crew stranded on Earth in our time period. Plingon...
