Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I'm a fan, but you'd have to be a bit of a nerd to remember the birthday of a tv show :lol:

I caught a bit of one of the movies on Film4 last night.

Malcolm McDowell (I think) was trying to kill Picard and Kirk.

Ah, Star Trek: Generations.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Happy Birthday Star Trek, may you live long and prosper. :D

I can still remember reading about the show in the newspaper. they had a picture in there of the entire crew and a story saying that the "five year mission" was coming to British TV soon. :)

I loved it, but Ifind some of those early episodes a little difficult to watch these days - same goes for early TNG.

I dare say I'll get the boxed sets of the original series - although I can't see me ever getting the animated series.
