Did anyone's parents help you make some Star Trek toys?
The standout things I recall my father doing: he sat at the kitchen table with me and we built the original AMT Enterprise kit, when I was too young to do it alone.
And one day he surprised me with THE MAKING OF STAR TREK, which he had evidently seen in a bookstore. It hadn't occurred to me that such a book could exist, and it was a pretty big deal. I must have been about 10 at the time.
