Passing On The Torch

My teen daughter and tween son, J, used to play Space Explorer while we were driving in the car. In official astronaut voices, they'd travel all over the universe, finding aliens (friendly and otherwise) and exploring strange new worlds. My daughter plays along now but lacks a certain enthusiasm.

Last night she was trying to be a good big sister but was falling rather flat. My son said, "Take us to light speed, Lieutenant!"  She didn't reply.  He repeated it several times. "Light speed, Lieutenant! Engage light speed drive!"

Suddenly a little voice piped up. "Light speed is broken, J! No light speed! J! No light speed, big brother!"

Star Trek: The Next Generation? :)
