I’m a huge Trekkie. My favorite series is the Original Series, although I love everything Star Trek. Personally, I had a problem with Into Darkness. It was a good and enjoyable movie, but it wasn’t Star Trek. But whatever. Like my indiscriminate love of Final Fantasy, if it says Star Trek on it, I have to have it. And even if I thought the movie was terrible, this thing COMES WITH A PHASER!!!!! HOW COOL IS THAT?!? So my set came from Amazon on Tuesday. I didn’t totally unwrap the phaser because I don’t have any place to display it right now, but you get the idea. Now that I have the movie, I’ll have to watch it again. This is the only Star Trek movie that has come out since 1990 that I only saw ONE TIME in the theater.
Blu-rays can be rather expensive. My husband keeps a wishlist or something on Amazon and checks periodically for sales. Last week, seasons 2 and 3 of Star Trek: The Next Generation were on sale for $49.99 apiece, so we snapped them up. Their MSRP is $129.99, so we saved $80. Of course, hardly anywhere actually sells them at the MSRP, but they usually go for about $80, so we saved around $30. That’s enough to buy at least two more Blu-ray movies on sale. Our collection isn’t nearly as large as our DVD collection and we don’t have any intention to replace ALL our DVDs with Blu-rays, but there are some things we just HAVE to have. Star Trek is one of them.
