    When I was young, TNG and VGR would air around the same time. I thought Picard had retired and Janeway was the new Captain of the Enterprise.

    Well, if you discount that the deflector dish effect was LAME. It looked like a tinkerbell magic sparkly ray compared to the Wave Motion weapon in that clip.

    It always intrigues me that one of the fundamentals of Star Trek production design -- that the 'classic' trio of uniform colors is gold, blue and red -- was actually a result of error, but it's now transcended into fictional "fact" (even though TOS-R has gone some way now to 'correcting' the error as far as TOS itself was concerned, showing the original 'command green' as it was always supposed to look).

    I think people would go a bit crazy if the next incarnation of Star Trek suddenly said, 'No, it's actually green, blue and red'. ;)

    I was under the impression, at least until I googled it, that Star Trek began in 2009. Little did I know that they actually had films and shows made before that.

    ;)

    And I wish the Enterprise had used the klaxon from that clip's first 15 seconds before firing the deflector dish :)

    Maybe, but I think it was assassinated in 2009.

    I say it was given a much-needed shot of cordrazine:)

    ^ That gets thrown around a lot... but does anyone *really* say potah-to? (Serious question!)

    Before I had watched much of DS9 or TNG, I thought the Maquis and the Resistance were kind of the same thing, and that Major Kira had fought the Federation at some point for some reason.

    I was briefly under the impression once that there were more than three Star Wars movies. ;)

    When I was younger I was sure that continuity glitches could be explained away somehow because, of course, the writing room was a tightly run ship all fully cognizant of every technical detail ever established in the series.

    I was nine or ten when I first saw Wrath Of Khan. I didn't see it again for many years and during that time I was absolutely sure that I remembered Khan getting his hand blown off during the final battle.

    I first watched the show as a very young person in the 70s. I was about 12 years old. I never caught that! I discovered that here on this forum!

    I'm right there with you. Star Trek fan for nearly 40 years now and I'm still learning new things about TOS (and the entire franchise) all the time from this site.

    on TOS: I also thought it was "Star Track" for awhile (never having seen the opening credits)

    on TNG: I was old enough to know better, but was in COMPLETE denial about a "bald, old man" being the Captain. Riker was the Captain....he just needed to be picked up at farpoint.
