Star Trek

So why is Enterprise coming out on Blu-Ray before DS9?

Also, talk about the franchise here.

Sir, do you have any Warrants?
I got their first CD, but you can't have it, motherfucker!

Because Enterprise was made in HD silly.

Okay, better question- who's actually going to buy Enterprise on Blu-Ray?

Hearing of Leonard Nimoy's death this afternoon hit me like a grand piano falling from the sky. But I think what hit me even harder was checking out his Twitter account and seeing his last tweet (I'm sure everyone has probably seen it by now) --
Quote
“A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.”

Considering what happened with me recently, that REALLY hit hard. Maaan...
 
I give him thanks to all the fun, wonder and intrigue he gave me growing up.
R.I.P. Mr. Nimoy.

And I'm not ashamed to admit that the last part of "The Wrath of Khan" movie still makes me tear up to this day.

I'm going to have to re-watch it soon. Especially considering the ending.

RIP.

I really should get into classic Star Trek.

It's one of those things that's been on my to-do list forever.

That said, even though I wasn't acquainted with much of his work, which I know extends beyond just Star Trek, it's always sad to see such a legendary figure pass away.

I was fortunate a couple years ago to had gotten the Blu-ray Motion Picture Trilogy collection as a Christmas gift. It has (in my opinion) three of the better of the classic Trek movies - "The Wrath of Khan", "The Search for Spock", and "The Voyage Home". I guess you could say "The Voyage Home" is now a little more noteworthy since Nimoy directed this one.

r.i.p. nimoy. i was recently thinking about him and his role in the invasion of the bodysnatchers remake and the monorail simpsons episode. this caught me off guard.

The ST films were removed from my Netflix before I got to IV, so I just ordered a copy of the movie trilogy.

I wanted to watch Wrath of Khan again, anyway.

Is it any wonder why people have a love/hate relationship with Netflix.  :imnothappy:

Good decision to get the trilogy set, though. Highly recommended.

Thanks!

I've only seen the first three movies before. Absolutely hated I, thought II was amazing, and III wasn't bad. But I've heard good things about IV so I definitely want to give it a shot.

After that I'll probably just get VI and call it a day.
