    You can put it on Craigslist for $8500 because you "deserve to get back close to what you paid for it."

    Can we bring back Secret City and Square One next?

    Yes, I should do this.

    Hell no! If we're bringing another one back, it's 3-2-1 Contact!

    This is the kind of educational stuff we need resurrected. Electric Company too! We need less of the life lesson crap!

    I just noticed that new packages were added for $1,200 and up...meet Patrick Stewart, meet William Shatner, meet the women of Trek, meet the men of Trek. I love it that Patrick Stewart is in the lead, and the women of Trek aren't far behind.

    When Levar was here in town for a con back in March he suggested to the audience that this was going to happen soon. Cool to see it done. I contributed to the KS.

    The Kickstarter was a success! It has been funded at $5,408,916 with a record-breaking number of backers. They are now in the top 5 Kickstarter projects ever, with the other four having contributed some new rewards and Seth McFarlane promising to match $1 million. So awesome!

    Some really cool Trek rewards were given away...whoever got the ultimate visor package better come here and tell us all about it!

    Now that the Kickstarter is over, I was wondering if anyone here is going to any of the Trek/RR events? When the price dropped, I pledged for the Women of Star Trek one. We are really excited, even though it's not until next year!

    PS I am new to this forum -- I have posted primarily on the TNG forum.

    I made a $50 contribution. The rewards weren't anything I was particularly interested in but I couldn't afford one of the higher reward levels so, :shrug:. Burton, as mentioned up thread, hinted at this KS campaign at a local con back in March. Glad to see it made its run and was successful.

    It's cool that you contributed. I didn't have any money, so I shared it with everyone I could find, and practically begged them to donate if they could. Reading is essential, and Reading Rainbow is one of the best ways to get children (and adults!) into reading.

    I'll pretty much donate to anything that promises me a free coffee mug. :p
