As Janice Rand, Captain Kirk's Yeoman Purser and original lust interest. Not mine, I was too young even when watching the show in reruns.

In the future we will all be equal, except there will still be hot women, except they will be Starfleet officers.

I'm quite sure I don't know what you're talking about.


Maybe I have an idea...

Important bassist Louis Johnson, one of the Brothers Johnson and session player for Quincy Jones, dead at 60. You have heard Mr. Johnson's work on half the hit records of the 70s and 80s. He was a monster.

This song showcases Mr Johnson's aggressive pop/slap technique in full. Just the first 15 seconds of it is enough to give you an idea:



You could find him everywhere:



Of course, the brilliant "Strawberry Letter 23", in which Mr Johnson's parts created a hidden rhythm that was one of the secrets to the single.
