But you're talking to a bunch of people who do consider the Abrams films as "Star Trek". Besides, Star Trek has had product placement before.

Product placement doesn't bother me a bit. If it's done right, i.e. a bit tongue-in-cheek, it can be a source of trivia fun.

Example: Chuck made great use of the Subway and Toyota sponsorships that helped to keep the series on the air. Remember Summer Glau wielding her weapon of choice to slice through a 12" Black Forest ham with chipotle sauce, banana peppers and jalapenos?

Re: I think it's about time for CBS Paramount to ...

In the first pilot, Captain Pike had a very ordinary 1960's television in his quarters.

Unless that was something the set designers created, it was probably a real TV. Given that one of the selling points of Star Trek was to help market color TV's, the TV was likely there very deliberately.

Product placement.

Pike's TV was still futuristic for me when I was a kid in the 80s. I mean, just imagine -- a TV which doesn't need tin foil wrapped around the antenna!

Thanks, BillJ.

But, that's not really a Commodore 64 is it? Looks to be something else, though I'm not sure what.

Yeah, that looks more like a Commodore PET in TWOK, not the 64. The PET was a little before my time for that sort of thing, so I didn't immediately recognize it. Thanks, again.
