You can imagine how the Star Trek franchise gets worked over by the submarine fleet during those 90-day patrols. Almost (but not quite) as popular as "Road House". By day 60, watchstanders would be able to recite dialogue for 10 minutes. By day 80 they'd be able to make all nuclear reports using only the movie's vocabulary.

These days I enjoy going to our franchise's Monday Morning Mommy movies. Five minutes from the house, the theaters almost empty-- just me and the hot chicks unemployed other retirees.

But this time we need to take a different tack with the next generation. So our kid's going to watch a Netflix copy of "Wrath of Khan" with us parents and then we'll do the same with the new Star Trek when it's out on DVD. That way she can pause the show for each leadership question, review the tactical decision-making process, and have time to outline her after-action report.

I'm pleased to see that he's aging well, but he seemed to be talking around a set of upper dentures.

So did you guys have just the movies, or also the series? BTW were they on VHS,Beta, Laserdisc, or DVD, or some super secret CIA format?

I hate to say it but you may want to spring for the matinee tickets, the big screen really matters and this from somebody who is down to only seeing 3-4 movies a year outside of netflix.

As you may be able to tell from my post I really do not have a dog in this hunt. Its a TV show and I agree with those who say that dear Sis, and trekies like her need to lighten up. That said I will lay your explanation on her and see where that goes. Just a little sibling "stirring of the pot" .
