There's your first mistake. "Classic Rock" is NOT from the 1980s. It is, of course, from the 1970s.
What?! 'Classic Rock' is clearly a thing of the 1960ies (Beatles, Rolling Stones, et al.)

Oldies are from the 60s. Classic rock is from the 70s. Get it right, people.

Dare I admit to watching silent movies on occasion?

(Just caught WEST OF ZANZIBAR with Lon Chaney Sr. the other morning. A weird, twisted movie.)

Metropolis is still great. I think one of reasons I like TMP are those long visual sequences with music and very little or no dialogue.

Ride around in the car with your teenager and put on any rock from the 1980s on back, and you'll quickly hear from the authority that they're all oldies and nothing is classic. It's dinosaur rock.

But how do they react to classic STAR TREK soundracks?

Well, as long as we're shaing, I'll admit to enjoying big band music from time to time.

As far as seeing a silent movie goes, the closest I've come to that was seeing TMP. Wait, I take that back. I saw Mel Brooks', "Silent Movie", but I doubt that's what you really had in mind, either.

Well in my family, if you're familiar with "Seinfeld", they have a "Mary Hart moment" in reaction to exposure to Trek music. I am, alas, the only Trek fan in the family.

You poor, poor boy.

Although, I can relate. There used to be several Star Trek fans in my family, but I have, sadly, outlived them all.

Sorry to hear that. I did overplay my had a little though. Maybe predictably (since it had the widest appeal), my wife did like TVH, though it's hardly like she'll recommend popping it into the DVD player when we're deciding what to watch.

My daughters were 6 and 9 when ST09 came out. I took them to it, and they did run around the house for about a month yelling either, "I can do this!" or "I like this ship! It's exciting!" My youngest thinks it's cool she can do the Vulcan Salute, now. So, I'm working on it.

Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

Just the other day, I was pleased to hear that my little brother has started introducing my nieces to classic STAR TREK, beginning with "The Cage" and "Mantrap."

Good to know he's raising them right!

How long before they're old enough to start reading Uncle Greggie's books?

They're in second grade and kindergarten. So, any day now!

(Well, maybe not the Underworld books . . . .)

I was thinking more along the lines of your brother showing them "Space Seed" and then reading The Eugenics Wars (Your best work IMO.), but they might not be old enough for those yet.
