Bread and Circuses is one of my all time favorites! with the classic line-

I'm new of this thread and I don't know if this trivia is already appeared here: 

The punk on the bus in Star Trek IV is the nephew of Margaret Thatcher. He is one of the movie producers and the author of the song loudly played by his stereo entitled "I hate you".

One of the funniest moments of the movie IMO.

Did any Trekkers here collect all the Star Trek Fact Files? I did and now I have too many folders full of useless Trek trivia - it was a lot of fun though and lasted for 5 years till they pulled the pin on them. Even though Enterprise first 2 seasons only were covered. 

BTW re watching Enterprise season 3 and very impressed with sets and action galore and some sexy scenes.
Just saw the episode Impulse where TPOL loses it completely and zombie klingons are marauding - creepy ep but well crafted.

Enterprise my favorite. It's a pity that the production decided to cut it truncating the story with two very bad episodes. Worse than Voyager's final.

Ye Enterprise was getting better and better. Loved that mirror universe stuff with the Defiant. Lots of fun.

^^^ Yes, definitely te Mirror universe ep with original enterprise bridge set was wonderful - In A Mirror Darkly parts 1 and 2 were best of the best with that series. I also loved Twilight where we saw an alternative future and the Xindi won in that future blowing up Enterprise. The scene where Enterprise bridge was blown out and we saw the crew floating away is a powerful Trek scene.
 


And the Enterprise blown to pieces is a great sequence too!

 ^ if you look closely, the blonde redshirt is protecting a female crew member.  Also not all redshirts are security, it's mainly the Engineering color.

The original series is too campy and silly for my liking. Recently started watching TNG, utterly brilliant. Proper science fiction with a focus on characters and interesting situations. I did always like Stargate, which clearly took a LOT from TNG. I look forward to  watching DS9, as I'm a big fan of Babylon 5.

^Took me awhile to warm to DS9 because of the stationary setting of the show, but once I got to know and became involved in the characters, I loved the show.

I've only seen the original series. What I have seen, I've adored, especially their adaptation of Fredric Brown's 'Arena'. Some folks may criticize Shatner as an actor, but I tell ya, he did a great job in those Twilight Zone episodes, and his soft-staccato declamation never offended me. 


He gave her his town house and his racing horses. Each meal she ate was a dozen courses. She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes. She sat around and counted them all a million times.

Just saw Enterprise series 3 finale so dang good! The Xindi story line was awesome and really sparked interest in the show for me.

Saw Catspaw today for halloween - a real clunky TOS episode.


Just about to watch TOS ep Operation Annihilate - this is a real curio with great acting and very odd premise. Nice scene where crew are firing multiple phasers, and Spock gets attacked by that jellyfish thing.

The series 4 finale was not so good.  Angry

I liked the first two seasons a lot more than the third and fourth actually.  Although there were some classic episodes in both the latter two seasons as well.

Did you hear that Disney just bought the Star Trek franchise and is putting out a new movie in 2015? It's going to feature singing tribbles in luscious traditional 2d animation.

Unfortunately they ran out of budget and cut it out. That final was assembled just to give it an end, but the original plot was very different.
