LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Friday’s Google doodle features an animated homage to “Star Trek,” just in time for the original television series’ 46th anniversary. (Spock is the “G.”)

The geek-friendly interactive tribute comes complete with sound and a lettered lineup of characters with beady, blinking eyes. What’s more, the homepage logo is also an interactive story.

Trekkies can click through a series of nods to the show: teleportation to distant lands, alarms blaring on the spaceship, whirring super-computers, alien bad guys vanquished with a pixelated bazooka all make for optimal use of pre-weekend work hours.

Beam me up, Scotty.
