Good old Star Trek. Of course the opening credits wouldn\’t be complete without a hot lava planet!
Crazy!Nice to be able to rewind/pause so you can record the image for the internets.. 😉
I record the episodes and watch them at my leisure. I usually fast-forward through the opening credits, but must stop at the part where Gene Roddenberry\’s name appears. Must see his name or it\’s not Star Trek. 🙂
