I've learned more about music looking up songs by the year online for this thread than I ever did at school.

Re: One-year countdown thread!

Yeah. I continue to be amazed at all the songs I thought were original works but were only covers of earlier work.

WIKI: "Mack the Knife" (Orignal) or "The Ballad of Mack the Knife", originally "Die Moritat von Mackie Messer", is a song composed by Kurt Weill with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht for their music drama Die Dreigroschenoper, or, as it is known in English, The Threepenny Opera. It premiered in Berlin in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm.
Familiar rendition:

Composed in 1926, published by Ben Selvin and His Orchestra in 1927

I did a search and came up with this version, by George Olsen, from the same year.

Re: One-year countdown thread!

Wow. This decade has flown by!

In the year 2223 of Star Trek Future:

Memory Alpha wrote:
Relations between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire degenerate, giving rise to some 70 years of unremitting hostility as the two powers become embroiled in a tense cold war. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

It may have been in this year that Starfleet adopted or first considered adopting its policy to secretly survey a culture before initiating First Contact, as referenced in "First Contact".

According to the Memory Beta link, 2223 is the year Sybok was born. IMO STV is vastly underrated, and the most TOS-like of the movies.

Re: One-year countdown thread!

Shatner may not have been the best director to ever helm the franchise but he did have a clue about a few things which made TOS click.

I once screened it for a friend who only ever watched any Trek when I forced her. After-wards I asked her what she thought and her response was the same as your statement above; "...most TOS like", of the films up to that time.

Re: One-year countdown thread!

In honor of Scotty's future birthyear, here is the unofficial biography of Montgomery Scott, as told by Simon Pegg...
Simon Pegg wrote:
Here's my take on Scotty's past. Feel free to link it to any Star Trek communities that might be interested. I put it together from research I have done into the character and small flourishes of my own. It is done for fun but with love and respect for the mythology and the character.

Montgomery Scott was born on March 3rd 2222, in Linlithgow, West Lothian. His parents eventually moved him and his brother Robert to Aberdeen, where his sister Clara was born. An exceptional student Scotty (or Mad Monty as his friends called him) was advanced forward several years in the educational system, meaning his intellectual peers were all at University age, whilst he was a mere 14. As a result, he spent much of his time crawling the pubs of Aberdeen with is friends, drinking and getting into fights about thermodynamics and quantum mechanics with men twice his size. At the age of 16, he came to the attention of professors at the Advanced Relativistic Physics Department at Glasgow University, after disproving the Prerera Theory (regarding photon torpedo detonation) and was transferred to study there for a year (where he really picked up the accent) before being accepted to Starfleet Academy on a scholarship.
However he deferred his placement in favor of practical experience in space, working aboard mining ships and freighters, in particular the USS Deirdre, where he fell in love with engineering.
Eventually he attended Starfleet and finished top of his graduating year, although the honor was later stripped due to disciplinary action taken against him due to "highly speculative and dangerous experiments with matter transfer".
The rest as they say is the future.
