A Star Trek Weekend

Southern Man is delighted to report that while watching the latest Star Trek film teenage daughter was filled with questions about the Original Series, which due to some defect in her education she has never seen. And Friday evening Southern Man came home to find her watching her newly-purchased DVDs of Season One (how nice to be a teen with a job and few bills!) and we have been immersed in the adventures of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock all weekend. Southern Man was quite the little Trekker in his younger days (well, he never really quit and today knows more about Star Trek than is healthy for a grown man) and it has been a real pleasure to watch these cheesy but much loved old shows. And now she's put in the first of the movies...

You mean to say while she's still at that coveted "have a job and few bills" stage of life, she has the attention span to handle ST:TMP?

Quite a girl you got there. She's gonna go places.

Movies should never tell a story in sixty seconds that can be told in thirty or less (shuttlecraft fly-by is over four minutes!)...and they should never, ever make annoying noises. Whoever came up with the sound effect for the emergency buzzer in ST1 should have been flayed alive. Still, there's a certain magic about this one that compensates for the many flaws.
