It's all about me....don't we all just love filling these things out. I can remember watching the TOS first showing in the 60's when I was 4 or 5. Thinking that the phaser rifle was soooo cool I made one out of tinkertoys. :) In the years that followed, I found Lincoln Enterprises and started buying items like blueprints, braid and command insignia and other goodies. Then the books started to flow, I'd go to stores looking for those James Blish novelizations, the Making of Star Trek, and many more came on the scene. I am an avid reader, and loved my books. But every boy back then was a model builder right? Well I have all of my original models and those I don't have I've re-collected from auctions on Ebay over the years. My beautiful wife decided to give me an Avon set of DST figures one year and that started my collecting figures now...and as if that isn't enough, I collect the Master Replicas and John Long props too.
Is this who I am? No of course not, but you'll never really know me unless you talk to me, get to know me, and perhaps become friends. I work in a technology field, originally an engineer and now an executive. I enjoy school, I still attend university. And I relish entertaining my friends at home with my wife and two kitties. Drop me a note, ;)
All I know for sure is that if the original Enterprise ever encountered this kind of society, Captain Kirk would've said, "The hell with the Prime Directive! We have to put a stop to this madness!" And then blasted the place from orbit. After that, he probably would have checked into the Love Shop for an extended shore leave.See More

Jeff Goldblum has always done some interesting work. He captivated audiences as the scientist slowly losing his mind -- but not his humanity -- in David Cronenberg's remake of The Fly; and he walked us through the paces of Chaos Theory in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park. And lest we forget to celebrate our…See More
"@Ed: Makes sense. The desert is sort of an empty stage, so to speak. You see it used a lot in movies of that era: westerns, biker movies, hippies-being-terrorized-by-cannibals, etc.
I love Australia, and Aussie filmmakers have always made good use…"
"@Mike: you know, I remember reading somewheres in print back a few decades how effects-work of the 50's, 60's, and early 70's was fairly limiting in live action due to some demands of the effects' people. (I wish I remember…"
"I never quite understood why, in "Damnation Alley," everything turned into a desert? Vegas makes sense, sort of, but everything else was just for visual flare. Do you suppose this movie was what drove Jan Michael Vincent to drink? "
