    [winkthumb] That would be #4 "The Voyage Home". I've got everything Trek, but it's never something I recommend. Either your a Trekker or you're not.


    Is there anything new and worthwhile on that dvd? I'm wondering if an upgrade is in order.

    Trekker? I always thought it was Trekkie. (not that I'm a sci-fi fan or anything, just needed the clarification for linguistic reasons ;) )

    Was that where they were negotiating for the secret to 'clear aluminum'

    Clear Aluminum... yes, that was Scotty :)

    Trekkie vs. Trekker.... There is a big division in the uber-nerd ranks over this. Accepted term now for a fan that still has his mental stability is "Trekker".

    I can see lots of movies in my future. Never did go to many, and what shows up on TV is hard to find if you don't bother with subscription channels. Last flick I went to was Apollo 13, and that was in 95. (But I'll have more time on my hands later this year.)

    S&P E&E w/AR

    Depending upon one's view about downloading (I pay for HBO, SHO, MAX & TMC so I don't feel like I'm ripping anyone off), use imdb to get a brief overview of a movie, then a program like Bitlord to download and view.
