Sci-fi Nerds and Heaven

EnterpriseSomeone asked me, Will there be sci-fi super nerds in Heaven? And will we all get together and build the Enterprise?

Over the years I have been asked many profound questions about Heaven.

This is not one of them.

However, as someone who eagerly watched the premiere of the original Star Trek in my home as a twelve year old in 1966, and who still has a Picard/Riker ’92 bumper-sticker, I would not be at all surprised if we build starships, and I’m going to put my name in to fly on one. I’ve always wanted to go to the Andromeda galaxy, since before I was a Christian. I have long believed that someday I will. If your husband wishes to come along and wear Vulcan prosthetic ears, he is welcome. Of course, I won’t be in charge, which is one of the things that will make it Heaven for me and for everyone else.

God being the infinitely creative Creator, I expect to find creatures and perhaps humanoid species in the far corners of the universe. Though most of them may not be as strange as those I met at a Star Trek convention, e.g. below:
