Rewatching STAR TREK

With my li'l Enterprise DVD-1701 from Target (many thanks for that heads-up, ericcoleman). I am affirmed in my earlier opinion: This is, by far, one of the most MST/riffable movies to come along in years. In a good way, because the film is also so very entertaining. So many chances and so many opportunities.

But. It's also just good.

Vulcan just got et by Nero's black hole, and Uhura asks Spock, "What do you need?" and Spock, with so many emotions boiling just under the surface, says, "I need everyone... to continue performing admirably."

For all of its many flaws, especially with the damn time travel which has only been done right once ("City on the Edge of Forever"), there is so much to love about this movie. And the Uhura/Spock relationship is amazing. And, if I may say so, eminently logical.

Any other new vid we need to know about?
