Rocket on the Launchpad

Count me among the ranks,
A vehicle of stellar achievement,
aimed and poised at a target all my own,
I will join the many who've gone before,
and light an arc upon the sky,
to help guide those who come after,
To the stars we travel a family of bright roaring tails,
each its own hue,
each its own destiny,
but all have the same origin,
in the hearts and ambitions,
of a species not so long lived on the Cosmic Calendar,
but perhaps destined to carry over to the next year,
and expand the horizon just as Captain Picard,
Our own captains,
of our own ships,
poised to go where no man has gone before!
We are the Rockets!
