Stop it, you're making me sad that I lost my bridge playset during a move to a new house when I was ten.

Re: Your TAS memories

Like Kelso, my first full exposure to TAS was through Foster's "Log" series. I'd heard of TAS and I'd read references to the episodes in Bjo Tremble's Concordance, but I never dreamed I would ever see the series. It wasn't in syndication anywhere that I knew of and I never thought it would.

Then in about 1985 (I think) Nickelodeon started broadcasting the entire series. Here I was, 13 or 14 and riveted by "new" Star Trek with Kirk, Spock and McCoy. I'd read some of the Logs and was finally able to see the episodes "live," so to speak.

I finally understood how the Klingon D-7 was able to "capture" and carry the Enterprise as depicted in the Concordance.

Re: Your TAS memories

^What I don't understand is why they changed the red Delta Triangle backgrounds to black in the DVD release of "The Time Trap." Probably a color-correction error like the infamous de-greening of Majel Barrett in the Orion test footage from "The Cage," but if so, it was careless of them.

Re: Your TAS memories

Replacing the red space with plain old black is a major peeve with the DVds for me. Kelso, I wish I had some of those old super8 films I made back in the day, but they are all LONG gone. I made some pretty cool little films.

I used to draw my comics as a kid. When I drew Star Trek the characters looked like the TAS versions.

Maybe they'll fix it on a future re-release if they get complaints.

I wasn't even aware they had changed them. It had been years since I saw the episode, before I got the DVD set.

Re: Your TAS memories

Watched the original run. Bought the DVDs when TNG S4 Bluray released and rewatched this summer.
For me the theme was meh from the beginning but the underscore is still a favorite...

I guess I need to turn in my Star Trek fan badge, I've owned that DVD set since the day it came out, and watched that episode at least 200 times in the years since (one of my favorites), and I never once noticed that the background had been changed.

^Well, I only knew about it because I've heard it complained about on this BBS before. Although I do still have a very worn-out VHS copy of the episode (actually a VHS re-copy of a Beta copy of a VHS rental) that shows the original background color.
