Finally


This news will thrill all you Original Series STAR TREK geeks out there, myself included. They are finally releasing the complete DVD set of the STAR TREK Animated cartoon series from the mid-1970s...

I have been waiting for this for a long time and eagerly await the arrival of what I tend to think of as "Star Trek Season 4 and 5". These great cartoons had the original cast members doing the voices, and the episodes were written by writers who worked on the original live-action TV series. There's even a sequel to "The Trouble With Tribbles" entitled "More Troubles, More Tribbles", written by original writer David Gerrold.

Whoops, I just drooled. 'Scuse me.

Bill,
Did you ever see the tribbles "crossover" epidose that Deep Space Nine did? I never really like that particular Star Trek show, but the tribbles thing they did was a really fun romp through that classic episode.

"Could someone PLEASE close that door?"

Also, did you see the teaser poster for the next Trek movie up on startrek.com? If you haven't, you should...

Oh yeah, a quick question:

Is there a Doop in the Star Trek universe?

Doop is everywhere...

There was the "Horta" creature in Star Trek and the big amorphous space blob in another episode, but no actual DOOP sightings.

OH man! I love the "planet eater" thing that looks like a giant Bugle snack!!! Too funny. Actually, the bugle creature was in that "New Frontiers" show you posted/sent a while back if I remember correctly...

I'm pretty sure Gene Roddenberry's ashes are already up there on a space probe or something... I remember that from several years ago.

stymieresh - Your "Bugle snack creature" comment cracked me up... that's exactly what it looks like...

It's a great snack the whole Trekkie family can love!

And is it me, or are Bugles completely useless for actual dipping? They used to show people dipping Bugles in their print ads, but I always ended up with salsa covered fingertips... maybe I'm just not very well-schooled in the Ways of Dipping.

Maybe I need to brush up on my I.D.I.C.

Heh.

Uhhhh... Vulcan IDIC... y'know to help me find my center with the Bugles thing. Dipping. Salsa. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.

Um.





Help me, I am a Star Trek Geek.

There. I said it.

Oh man! That thing cracks me up. The whole blatant product placement thing is so funny. I remember getting into an argument with my die-hard trekkie friends about how Roddenberry put that thing in the show just to sell that cheesy pendant. They, of course, believed the B.S. that it was part of the "continuity" of Trek.

It's a chicken or the egg thing, I suppose.

Roddenberry was surprised by the spontaneous appearance of a die-hard core of fans who actually formed a convention in New York to gather to talk about Star Trek and swap film cels and other memorabilia. Remember, this was before the "Avalance of Licensing" era that we live in, and there just wasn't a lot of stuff to be had for the fans. Roddenberry sensed an opportunity to pry som cash from the willing Trek fans, and the rest is history...



(I had one of those IDIC pins... *coughgeekcough*)

If I remember correctly, Nimoy wasn't too happy about wearing the thing originally.

Hey, I'm one of the latecomer Star Trek geeks who had to watch it in syndication in the 80's. I STILL think KAHN is the best Trek movie ever.
