It wasn't until many years after TNG ended that I found out Betazoid eyes, like Deanna and Lwaxana's, are all black.
I didn't figure that out until noticing that Nurse Chapel's eyes were blue upon rewatching TOS.

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...
Why am I not surprised?
Why would anyone be surprised? Most of the TOS fans I've met started off as teen males way back in the 70s.
Because he was different from the teens of today. If it wasn't for that demographic, you wouldn't be here talking about this show.

I remember picking up on that while rewatching Tin Man years later, & remembering Harry Groener from his other show Dear John

Originally, I'd thought they just gave Majel black eyes to make her look less like Nurse Chapel, & more like Marina Sirtis, having thought all along that Marina's eyes were naturally that color. It took seeing a 3rd Betazoid to make me question it. The black eyes really stood out on him

I confess that for years I thought "The Galileo Seven" referred to the name and number of the shuttle, not the number of passengers!

In Star Trek 2009, the remote outpost they find Scotty in has flickering neon tubes and TFT displays. I expected something more advanced than that, considering what we're shown throughout the rest of the film and what technology is already existing.

That may have been the point. That outpost wasn't exactly a desired posting.

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.
Can't locate my copy, but according to Solow & Justman's Inside Star Trek: The Real Story, Lucille at one point thought "Star Trek" was about Hollywood stars going on USO shows, as she herself had done during WWII.

I remember that too. And then she found out what it was really about...

And perhaps Scotty likes to work on old tech like that anyway.
