The original Star Trek is still in re-runs, over thirty years later. The motion picture industry still loves the idea, ... and writers of science fiction books would be lost without the images it inspires (NOT necessarily my images, but somebody else's that are more traditionally, commercially viable).
Yes, it DOES get old, for YOU. And I can understand that. But the mania still existing today shows that it obviously has not gotten old for everybody.
Ever see an alien down there? in Rosewell, Daniel, ... I mean ... since you ARE from there, you surely must have stumbled upon the secret, underground hampers where the government stores them top-secret intercepted spacecrafts from Zimdar, Xextor, Flemzack, and other such exotic worlds.(^_^) ... Darn aliens, ... with their obscene probing and all, ... there should be an intergalactic law! .....
oh I'm fully aware of the mania lol, cruise over to Roswell and the first thing you'll see is an alien head lol. I would recommend going to the alien space museum there in Roswell if you havn't been, it's quite interesing really and especially if your into the alien thing :)
