laugh When TOS came out I was in high school. I wrote down the Star Dates of the first few episodes, but never did figure out any pattern in them!

Tomorrow "For The Love of Spock" by Adam Nimoy (son) comes out! And I'm setting up a date for my tenth STA game.

I saw FTLOS in June at the Westwood Crest, well the screening Adam and Kai had completed at that point, which was a refinement of the Tribeca screening.

Definitely worth checking out. Very well done.

Jon,

That's because the episodes weren't aired in the order in which they were shot.

I remember watching Star Trek when I was 10 years old. Had quite an influence on me.

For you older guys that saw Star Trek at a young age, how do you look at Star Wars?

I'd imagine Star Trek would be your primary love because you were exposed to it in your formative years.

For me, I grew up on Star Wars in the 80s, (especially playing with the toys) and a little bit of Star Trek which I loved watching on the old cottage black and white tv with rabbit ear reception.

Then TNG hit and it was great, but Star Wars had a huge impact on me probably because I was such a kid when exposed to it (and it was the best Star Wars being the original trilogy).

So I love both, but I was young enough to have both impact me. For you "old guys" what was your experience with all the sci-fi after Star Trek?

Well Star Trek TOS was the one I grew up with and I was 21 when the first Star Wars film came out with the successor episodes appearing over the next decade or so. Of course, Star Wars was an enjoyable film but it was just that, initially only available at the cinema. Videos wouldn't be generally available for quite a few years, so you went to see the film enjoyed it and then more or less forgot about it. It was also one of a fair number of great films around then, the Indiana Jones series being an example that springs to mind. Star Trek however was much more ubiquitous, being a TV series it seemed to go on for ages with different episodes each week, so although set in a fairly consistent universe like Star Wars it was a very different animal. Star Wars, at least in terms of the cinema, is effectively one story albeit an epic one, whereas Star Trek is a tapestry of many individual stories and in that respect seemed somewhat richer.

Of course, being a Brit the impact of both is overshadowed for me by the phenomenon of Doctor Who which obsessed me from the age of 8 about 5 years before I came across Kirk, Spock et al.
