Great Fun Despite Trivial Content
22 November 2016 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Nerds play around with the original star ship Enterprise model.

I am amazed that I am the first to review this, I was expecting 20 reviews!

Look, there is no question that the subject of this film gives new meaning to the term trivial subject, but hey, I love classic Star Trek and I would kill to have the original Enterprise model in my home...so why not make a show like this.

It is rather sad to discover that most of the sets and props for the 1966 series were destroyed because, at the time, nobody had any idea of the value of such items.

In a nutshell: it has been a few weeks since I watched this show, and yes, it does sort of linger in the memory weeks after a viewing, so don't feel the whole idea of it is just too nerdy to bother with.

Give it a go!
