    select * from tbl_order_item where 14506=order_item_id

    Ok. no. That is not what I was trying to paste here.

    This is it:

    http://startrekcontinues.com

    Some crazy people are making new episodes with the original characters.

    The sets and models are said to be quite true to the original series. I suppose this was somewhat easier to accomplish due to the low budget of the original.

    I heard about this from an interesting post on it at -- http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?se...oc_id=1326476&
    Do you miss the original series? Would you like to see some more episodes? If so, this is your lucky day, because my chum Rick Curl and his wife just sent me the following message:
    Hi Max, I don't know if you're a fan of the original Star Trek series, but we are. Yesterday, we discovered this site: StarTrekContinues.com, which is a continuation of the original series by a bunch of Star Trek fans. They've only got three full episodes out so far, but I'm very impressed. They absolutely nailed the sets down to the tiniest detail. The guy who plays Kirk has Shatner's swagger down to a tee; Sulu is played by Grant Imahara, originally from the Mythbusters series and more recently a spokesman for Mouser Electronics; and Scotty is played by Chris Doohan, who is the son of James Doohan. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

    I'm having a hard time with "Kirk's" and "Spock's" voices. And "Spock" seems to be attempting a British accent at times.

    Watching.

      I'm watching it now.

      I think it follows the feel of the original Star Trek pretty well. The sounds and scenes are so similar.

        Even to its predictability. As they were walking about on the hull of the ship doing "repairs", I thought "why aren't they TETHERED?!?!?!".

        Sure enough, one of them floats away, never to be recovered. The "expendable crew member" factor is alive and well!

                Why doesn't somebody get that green lady some clothes, instead of letting her run around the ship in her bathing suit?

                  They are on a long journey and only have so many outfits and so much laundry detergent.

                      There's a few more groups, out there, doing stuff like this. I personally enjoy phase 2 myself:

                      http://www.startrekphase2.de/en/index.php

                      Some of their episodes have even had Walter Koenig (AKA Chekov) and George Takei (AKA Sulu) as guest stars.
