But there was always a part of me that found the TV show a bit preachy and worthy. I mean... in The Next Generation one of the main characters was the ship's counsellor, for pity's sake. I didn't want "Claire Rayner in Space"...!
Still, at least the merchandise failed to reflect the touchy-feely tone of the show. In fact, most of it barely reflected the show at all...
Also: "It stunts"?!? It stunts what? Growth? Intelligence? Sales of Star Trek merchandise?
Here's an interesting fact, that I just got from Wikipedia: when the creator of Subbuteo was denied a trademark to call the game "Hobby", he chose Subbuteo from the Latin name of the Eurasian hobby bird: Falco subbuteo. What a pseudo-intellectual twat.
Well get this, idiot - you didn't bank on your lazy, incompetent, penny-pinching, ways to be exposed for everyone to see in 40+ years time did you? Bet you don't feel so smart now, eh, Armand J. Leclerc, founder of Ray Plastic Inc.? That's right - I Googled you and your company. Also, I see that you died in 2001 - probably of guilt and shame.
Leclerc is buried in the Hollywood Memorial Gardens Cemetery (not the one in California - it's in Florida; 3001 N. 72nd Street, Hollywood, FL 33024, USA) if you want to pay him a visit. You could maybe stand at his graveside, waiting for visitors - and then you can tell them exactly what he did.
It flies like a real spaceship.
No it doesn't...
Also; what's the point of binoculars anyway? If you want to know what something looks like up close just go over there.
Still, that "cave glove creature" is terrifying!!!!
