Some of the best scenes of any of the ST movies, I agree! I especially liked the one where they were getting the 'clear aluminum' with Scotty talking to the computer using the mouse..And when told it was just a 'pointing device' he said 'How quaint!'

One of my other favorite scenes was in Wrath of Kahn when they were following Kahn's destination using the transporter:

Bones: What if they went nowhere?
Kirk: Well, this will be your chance to get away from everything!

Welcome to the forum, Onion. Are you aware that the NAR's annual competition is in Lebanon, OH July 23-29? The weekend is a sports launch, so it would give you a chance to see how the hobby has changed. Check it out at www.naram53.quarkers.net

Hope everyone's next launch is a safe and successful one,

As we have seen on ebay so many times, there is "worth", and then there is what someone with cash and a desire will pay for an item. The value curve gets blown away every couple of months due to an item being exactly what two people feel they have to have, and are surely not going to lose to o****y.

The UnstoppableOnion,

Fly the rocket fly fly fly!

MIB $30 - $50 value, but opened and a rememberance of your youth ... much more valuable!

Aim for the section of the Klingon ship right behind the bridge... the narror tubular section. A direct hit should disable her, but be careful, the Klingons will not be taken alive and self destruct the ship once you are near enough to her.

"A KEYBOARD! How quaint..."

LOL

Can you direct us to the naval base in Alameda? It's where they keep the nuclear wessels.
