And I have to add that involving Wil Wheaton in the discussion was like serving Romulan Ale for supper–after experiencing the pain, you have to ask why would anyone do that to himself?

I could have sworn the Green Acres theme won at the Emmys? Well, anyway neat. As to Wil Wheaton, I didn’t like him as Wesley but he’s redeemed himself in my eyes.

Takei is hilarious. Oh my indeed, Anthony.

Shatner is certiifiable. “Think about it, where… NO MAN hasgonebefore!”

I love these old timers. And Wil Wheaton, good luck with that facial hair. Give it time!

That was pretty cool. Although I found Mr. Tambourine Man pretty funny/jarring/weird in a good way.

Now, let’s cue StillKirok finding some way to turn this into a Bring Back Kirk campaign.

They even bothered to find the dude who played Pugsley?

Did anyone notice that all the clips used for the special are from MOVIES, although this was a special about TV catchphrases? Whenever we see the series, it’s in the form of stills.
There must have been a legal rights issue. Bizarre.

What about “Damn it Jim!”?

What is the phrase used when they were meeting new spieces, and why they could not get involved unless they were part of the federation???
