Google Trek

Star Trek fans, go to Google right now (Go Ogle)!

They’re celebrating the 46th anniversary of Star Trek, and the Google artwork is delightful and provides some fun.

Mouse over the image and click anything that lights up with a line around it!

See if you can find the tribbles!

See if you can beam down to the planet and defeat the monster!

See if you can see the Enterprise fly.

Happy 46th Anniversary Star Trek!!

[Pass it on to your Trekker friends.]
