OK, so I’m a Star Trek geek. Always have been, always will be. And what was the first ST I could see regularly? The much-maligned, apocryphal animated series from 1973-74. Still, it was good stuff to a fledging nine-year-old geek-in-training who hadn’t yet seen the 79 episodes of the truncated five-year mission.
So there’s rapture and joy — Star Trek: The Animated Series is coming to DVD in November! Like a lot of things, this collection of work had made it to LaserDisc in the 80s or early 90s, but I never picked it up — I think it was $125 or so, and I needed that money for making rent or macaroni dinners. For a paltry (by comparison) $35, I’ll be able to place this little dab of history on the bookshelf, and share it with my daughter and wife.
Yeah, not a big thing in the big scheme of things, but for me, it’s a little piece of my childhood boomeranging back to whack me in the skull. 🙂
