Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

That, was wonderful!!!

Just reminds me of being a teenager in the '70s and scrabbling around anywhere I could for any scrap of information about the new show. I remember my family took a trip to the California Bay Area for Thanksgiving ... I think it was 1977 ... and I insisted on dragging my parents to the only "Star Trek Place" I knew of, which was in Berkley. I think it was called The Federation Trading Post. They had a painted looking poster of the Phase II Enterprise -- I think it was probably the one that's been posted on here many times. My jaw literally dropped. I was like a kid in a candy store, and got to talk to some of the folks who worked there about all the news and rumors and any scrap I could get hold of about the new series -- no, movie -- no, series -- no, movie.

Ah, life before the interwebs ....

Sorry if I digressed. You just took me back a few decades with this brilliant piece.

Thanks, Dennis, as always!
