pRON,

1) As far as zippers go, Gene's dream was of a zipperless future. Unfortunately, we mere 20th and 21st century types don't have too many options, and so the costumers often had to use zippers. (There were a few very nicely tailored pieces that didn't use them though-- for example, one was worn by Michelle Forbes in the TNG episode "Ensign Ro", where she removes her tunic to put it on a Bajoran child.)

2) Velcro-- didn't you know, that was invented by Vulcans? winking smiley

I though a trekker was someone who walked through the Himalayas. Aren't you talking about trekkies?



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

davester, some consider "Trekkie" derogatory, prefer "Trekker"

pRON, you must not have gotten my joke... no doubt another Trekkie/Trekker will.

Huh? Why would Stephanie (specifically) be the one to wear that? (That's Catwoman, not Snakewoman winking smiley !)

Personally I'd be more interested in the "Gorn" or "Creature from the Black Lagoon" Mask.

[cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com]

[cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com]

or maybe the "Holy Grail"

[cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com]#

"Creature from the Black Lagoon" a super Classic, scared the you know what out me when I was a kid.

Boy, I'm amazed that Gorn head is up for sale-- that's something that's essentially priceless, as it's the only one still in existence, and is really now a historical artifact.

Here's a pretty disgusting one:

[cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com]

And I want one of these!:

Okay, I thought the Gorn head was pretty amazing until I saw this one:

[cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com]

The acquisition of this could be the first step towards fulfilling several of my old junior high fantasies


(Am I over-sharing?)

outcast, no, those uniforms are fairly easy to come by (at least, the fan-produced versions are). But as for fulfilling several of my old junior high fantasies, I choose this one:

[cgi.ebay.com]

... when Rachel Bilson wore one of these on The OC (a much better version of it, which better matched the old series), my eyes practically fell out of my head: [www.moviehole.net]

PeterB, that's not just any compression rifle. It's a working compression rifle. You'd think the gov't would buy this to help in the war effort.
