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.
Well, he can show them the covers at least.

Funny story: many, many years ago, I dedicated my XENA book to another niece, who checked every copy at the local bookstore to make sure her name was in ALL of them!

Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

I don't think it was necessary, but I think it was a valid option, and fortunately it worked out great. It would be hard for new characters to have the connection with the audiences Kirk and company have, and I think it was nice to include Nimoy as a way to link this with the rest of the franchise.

Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

By the time DS9 ended a reboot was required because there the Dominion War's aftermath was so all-encompassing. You couldn't really set a Trek show set in the Alpha Quadrant without being a continuation of DS9 which was never a favorite with the higher-ups.

So I understand the need for a reboot. But I don't like the fact they chose to reboot it as a movie. I sure don't like the way they did a remake/reimagining of the TOS and characters, if it was a remake of TNG that would've been at least watchable (I am not a TOS fan).

Always loved this attitude.

I'm a huge fan of TOS, my favorite, but I'd have been there if they had rebooted TNG, made a continuation TNG, DS9, Voyager or Enterprise movie. Because I like Star Trek.

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!
Nice! The Cage still holds up as excellent, intelligent science-fiction. When I finally impregnate a female I'm gonna raise the spawn on TOS, TNG and DS9. I'll tell them scary bedtime stories of the Abrams film to make sure they behave .

This will NEVER happen if you make that statement in those exact words to any woman. Just some friendly advice.

Also true. But Penny cannot offer to "impregnate her with…spawn" (some of those words are not in her vocabulary).

5 seconds after I'd made that post, I received 70 PMs from hot female Trekkies demanding I sleep with them.

Promise.
