Star Trek is here

Well, today is the day for the much hyped new Star Trek movie. I have plans to go tomorrow and based on the reviews from this morning it sounds like it will be amazing. Actually, I don't care much what happens today - I had the most amazing massage last night and I still feel like major jello. All is good in the world.

I did catch part of Star Trek II TWOK the other day. What is sad is that I know most of those lines by heart and can speak them with the characters. I am pretty sure I saw that movie on July 10th, 1982 and I was forever enthralled wtih Star Trek after that. Two stations, Channel 5 out of Washington and Channel 10 in Columbia showed Star Trek that summer, one came on at 5 and the other came on at 5:30, so I would watch the full one at 5 and then at 6 would switch channels to see the end of the second one. It was great. That fall, Channel 5 showed Star Trek at 8 pm most nights unless there was a basketball game on. I ended up watching a couple episodes of MASH each night as that was shown before Star Trek at 8. It did not take much to make me happy!

I remember coming back to 10th grade after you had discovered TWOK. I thought you were the coolest gal ever.

My wife is getting a big kick out of my excitement over the new Star Trek movie.

I remember the Star Trek shrine in your room, Martha. I, too, thought you were the coolest...

Ah yes, the shrine! Back before we even had a vcr, I could at least listen to the Star Trek TMP and Star Trek II soundtracks. It was my little way of having the movie without having the movie. I could also read all those books. Jim laughed at me when I showed him my Star Trek Concordance - the book that was out of print. I bought it for $100 at my first Star Trek convention in 1991. James Doohan came to Columbia and he signed my book.

We're going to the movie at 3:30 today, and I must admit - I'm pumped! My sister saw it last night and I think she loved it. I can't wait!!!
