One of my favorite things was discovering about three years into working together that we’d lived in the same town and attended the same high school for a year. He was good friends with a family across the street. We’d never crossed paths there. Pure comedy.
Bill was our marketing and international VP, but he was so much more than that and never afraid to pick up a screwdriver, polish museum cases, do whatever needed to be done on any project. He was also a great father and husband and will be greatly missed. Thank you Bill.
Most of you don’t know Bill, but I promise if you bought a piece of Trek merch or attended a con, a Cruise, or one of our SDCC exhibits in the past 14 years, you experienced the dedication Bill brought every single day. And night. And weekend.

Had a great time at #LowerDecks S2 event last night. The season is AMAZING, @MikeMcMahanTM et al nailed it and @MrJerryOC is the nicest guy in the world and promoted me to leader of the Federation or something. Anyway, he rules. As does my pal Rutherford.
Yesterday, Fauci announced that 99.5% of recent covid-19 deaths were among the unvaccinated.
Just 0.5% of deaths were among the vaccinated.
We have a ~50% vaccination rate in the country.
So, choosing to be unvaxxed? You're 200x more likely to die.
Your body, your funeral.
