Re: Things about Star Trek you just found out

Roscoe was only after them all the time because they WERE hauling shine...

In reality, that Boner from Growing Pains was Walter Koenig's son in real life. It makes that joke even funnier in an episode when Mike Seaver was complaining about writing an english paper to Boner and he says, "Until today I thought Chekov was that Russian guy in Star Trek".

It's really fiction
Of course its fiction, its set in the future!
Whereas Star Wars can never be disproven because it happened "a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away"

Kind of a downer now given his tragic end.

Until the other day I had not connected that Elinor Donahue (Commissioner Nancy Hedford in Metamorphosis (TOS)) appeared in the series Father Knows Best with Jane Wyatt who also appeared in TOS as Spock's mother Amanda.

That some fans have been incredibly adept at CGI with original Star Trek, to make something like THIS. And that was 2 years ago!
Wow. That was really well done. I had to watch it several times just to catch all the changes he made.
He did make one mistake. The turbolift doors aren't deep enough in the pocket to line up when someone steps to them. Other than that, I have to say, I wouldn't be able to do that. I can only draw with a pencil.

Trek wasn't born in 66--really in 64' That and the flat saucer bottom on the three-footer.

That in the end of Day of the Dove, Kirk implies that others like 'the alien' may be partially responsible for the history of the Fed-Klingon conflict.

I never realized Krudge, in ST3 was Christopher Lloyd. Now I can't look at him without thinking about Doc Brown... which is ironic on the level that they use his ship to time travel in the next movie.

That Star Trek (2009) is rated as the Best of the Star Trek feature films...

Still shaking my head over it... Of course I investigated the IMDB site and learned that most of the people who voted it great were males in their teens, so...

And you know this, how?

I don't think so. What line are you referring to?

Re: Things about Star Trek you just found out

Star Trek wouldn't have happened at all without Lucille Ball. There were studio chiefs at her own Desilu Productions that thought Roddenberry's idea was both silly and too expensive--but Lucy thought it had merit, and against their objections, gave the authorization for Herb Solow to sign Roddenberry to develop Trek into a TV series.

But it didn't stop there. Once TOS was finally sold to NBC, it still almost didn't see the light of day. NBC was only going to cover 80% of the cost of making the show, leaving the remaining 20% for Desilu to pay. Being one of the more expensive shows on the air, the conventional wisdom might have been to say "no deal" and move on to something else, but Lucy still thought Star Trek was worth something and gave the final okay.

It wasn't until many years after TNG ended that I found out Betazoid eyes, like Deanna and Lwaxana's, are all black.

Not seeing how that would refer to the Fed-Klingon conflict. Its a general statement, some conflicts might have been caused by these entities and might have not.

I thought it was someone doing a bad impression of him.
I would've thought the same thing, if I hadn't stopped & really listened closely

Another thing I only just recently found out was that the original TOS ship design was upside down compared to how it ended up. It looks good either way, imho
