Star Trek fans: Are you amused, or appalled, by the ongoing attempts to cash in on the show?
The reason I ask is, at the casino where I work (Turtle Creek, near Traverse City, MI), we recently took delivery of a couple of slot machines which use graphics derived from the original TV series. They’re actually kind of neat, I think, because they feature bonus games inspired by actual episodes. (two words: Tribble Pinball)
Please let me know what you think.
Gee, tonight I just got back from Newbury Comic with a Original series phaser and communicator combo. I figure I’m going to embrace my inner nerd and go to the Star Trek movie in may in full star fleet costume.
It may be a geek thing to do, but it’s fun. Football fans, wrestling fans, rock group fans, wear jerseys or logo shirts to events right?
I think Star Trek is reasonable on their merchandising. Fans need a little stuff to enjoy. The new tricorder and bridge I’m looking forward to.
I think if I were to pick on shameless marketing I’d go with Star Wars. They had it down to a Darth Vader Mr. Potato Head.
In the end, it will level out at what the market will bear. Maybe a whole lot of dealers got stuck with TY beanie babies when collective America finally woke up to realize they were cute kids teddy bears, not 50 dollar collectors items.
I figure if Trek wants to make a fair dollar with something people will enjoy who am I to argue. People have fun and are happy. When it gets to the point a little kid can’t get an action figure because a guy goes into a store at 9:01 am and buys all of them to resell to “collectors” that’s where I struggle with it.
I like tribbles and tribbles like just about everyone… Well except Klingons.
Live long and prosper!

trade ps3 for go? or xbox 360?
Well there’s this person who wants to trade me his go for ps3 his ad is posted like this:
I have a like new mint condition White Pspgo.
it has built-in 16gb memory,
The PSP Go features 802.11 Wi-Fi.
Comes with Wall charger and Usb cable to link to computer and transfer files. Has screen protector on it & i will give you an additional one. Sony brand headphones & a soft travel case
I have about 10 games installed on it already which include street fighter alpha, pinball heroes, bowling, tetris & a bunch of psp minis. movies like district 9 & star trek & music too along with some digital comics.
i have spent over $350.00 on this system and am not in a rush to get rid of it. I am looking to trade it or sell it to the best offer. interested in cash, other systems, electronics, anything of equal value but no animals. no low ballers.
i have a 250gb ps3 i paid 310 for it and i bought a white controller and paid 35$ for it.. he said if we do tha trade he’ll add 50$ towards me im thinking this is a good trade should i do it? i have no games or anything. im getting tired of the ps3 and i already have an x box but thinking of getting another cause me and my bro share it becomes a hassle sometimes. what should i do?
Well dude to be honest, don’t sell your ps3. There are so many good games coming out for ps3, get call of duty modern warfare 2 and god of war collection, theres god of war coming out, tomorrow there will be the new army of 2 its awesome i played it, ps3 is way better than xbox and psp go, the psp go is awesome but not as good as ps3 i know cause i have one. But you should just buy a psp go theres games like assassins creed 2 where you can connect to you psp go if you buy assassins creed bloodlines which is awesome!
