Charles, you definately have a good point, and I'm begining to change my mind on how I feel about the whole thing. I watched some "older" movies with CG in them such as The Mummy, Dragonheart, and some other movies from that period of time when CG was just becoming what it is today. After seeing these movies now, the models look relatively crude and the lighting and textures off somewhat. In even 10 years will such highly acclaimed CG work even such as Golem/Smeagol from Lord of the Rings look outdated and cheesy?

Probably, but perhaps because it's not in 3D or Feel-o-vision or something like that!!

I'm surprised and embarrassed to say that I remember most of these lyrics from being a Trek fan as a teenager. I wil thus give it a try, at the expense of any degree of cool I may have gained since those pimply days. And I absolutely swear I didn't look these up on the internet, this is from memory from 25 years ago.

Beyond the rim of the starlight,
My love is wandering in starflight,
I know he'll find in ***** reaches,
Love, strange love a star woman teaches.
I know his journey ends never,
His star trek will go on forever
But **** *****wanders that starry sea,
Remember, remember me.

Few holes in there. OK, now I'm going to look it up and see how I did.

Wow. Not bad. Other than "star-clustered reaches" and "but tell him while he wanders", dead-on. Now I would like to flush the cache of brain cells that stored that useful information, and use it to remember the daily location of my car keys, sunglasses etc.

That theme song would be to die for if Shatner and Nimoy sang it dont you think? ;)

I like watching how predictions of the future came true or not.
Metropolis had tv screens.
Robocop had cd videos.

One of the Planet of the Apes movies had a cordless phone.

Lost in Space had wireless headsets.

Farenheit 451 had interactive tv.

My cell phone looks exactly like a Star trek communicator!
