I watched a TV show called “Star Trek – Beyond the Final Frontier” which was all about a recent Christies auction where Paramount were auctioning off their complete collection of props and sets and stuff for Star Trek, the Original Series, TNG, DS9 and Voyager.
And I got to watch these (rich!) geeks buy this stuff.
And how geeky am I? I was actually getting all Weepy and Teary-eyed just because (a) these people were getting cool trek stuff and it made them _so happy_, and (b) because all that neat trek stuff was going to good homes where it would be seriously looked after.
Oh man, so many happy nerds. No wonder I was all Emo. I am SUCH a dork.
Not so much that _I_ would have paid US$500,000 for the model of the Enterprise-D from TNG. But happy for the guy that did. At least you know he’ll take care of it.
