In this week’s Great Links we have an ‘angry’ look back at the history of Star Trek games, TNG and other Trek getting some respect on some lists, but being dissed by the AFI. Plus we have an (un)appologetic Trekkie showing her nerdiness, a new TAS mashup…and Picard goes green.

No love from the AFI
Last night the American Film Institute Special on CBS revealed their "10 Greatest Films in 10 Genres." The Top 10 Sci-Fi films were (descending order) 2001, Star Wars, ET, Clockwork Orange, Day the Earth Stood Still, Blade Runner, Alien, Terminator 2, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Back to The Future. Isn’t their something missing AFI? Even Entertainment Weekly noted "What the sci-fi list doesn’t feature a single Star Trek movie".
Picture of the week: An apology
Erotic Photographer and model Katie West got a comment on her blog saying "And f**k, the girl is just thin, and I get pissed each time I see her" so she created a photoset to ‘apologize’ to the world for all her sins, including "being a giant sexy nerd." (plus here is a bonus ‘making of’ shot on flickr.)
