  1. Star Trek toys just don't sell, period. Even in the wake of a good movie that everyone enjoyed. And I'm as bummed as the next guy. I guess I'm just frustrated because I've been trying to sell a few of my AA fiures on ebay and have been relisting them forever! Man, if you HAVE ST toys you better forget about ever moving them, that is, unless you dare to ask more than 99 cents per figure. I can't movie them at $5 each! Got an e-mail from entertainment earth cancelling my order for series 2 of the 3 3/4 figures. Looks like these won't be making it out after all.
  2. Sorry about that. If you google "Ugly couch show" it will lead you to thier recipe page. Just look for the Quarks Bar recipes. This site is run by an ex-bartender at the experiance, so these recipes are genuine not some "space age" drinks that call themselves Star Trek Drinks.
  3. I found one about a week ago, but I'm moving and haven't opened it yet to take any pics. It does look cool, but the wings are plastic. I hate it when a die cast toy is accentuated by plastic pieces.
  4. It depends on the class of the Bird Of Prey. Here's the wiki Although several variants are seen throughout the franchise, design notes state that the Bird of Prey has two main classes: the B'rel-class and the K'Vort-class. Both classes used the same studio model, differing in sizes in proportion to other starships depending on variant. The B'rel-class is a scout vessel, used for espionage, skirmishes and raids, while the K'Vort-class is a light cruiser. Both classes are armed with disruptor cannons mounted on the tips of the wings and a forward torpedo launcher, although the K'Vort-cla
  5. There were different classes to Birds of Prey. The Movie era one is a 12 man crew. The TNG era one is a roughly 300 person crew. I would consider the old playmates Enterprise D to almost be on scale with this die cast BOP.
  6. Just a heads up, these are the official drink recipes from the Star Trek The Experience attraction, I hope some one enjoyed them. This link, http://uglycouchshow.com/quarks-bar-drink-recipes/ , is to one of the actual bartenders from Quark's and all these drinks are the official recipes. Enjoy!
  7. I posted these in my wedding thread, but felt that more people would see them in thier own topic. And with a holiday weekend coming up maybe some of you trekkers could enjoy something cool and bubbling. Warp Core Breach Here is the recipe for the Warp Core Breach. Usually it was made in large batches, but it can be easily broken down. Here ya go: 6 parts Bacardi Superior (or any white, clear, cheap rum out there) 4 parts Bacardi Limon (or any lemon rum you can find) 2 Parts Bacardi Select (Meyers Dark rum also works, or whatever dark rum your store has) 2 parts Bacard
  8. Currently the attractions, bridges and rides are being moved to a new location set to re-open in 2010. So currently, there are no actual weddings or tours going on. (For those who don't know the Experiance was shut down at the Las Vegas Hilton last September, the decommisioning ceremony was heartbreaking, and since we were married there we returned for the closing not knowing that there were plans to save it and move it downtown near Freemont St.) While the attraction was open you could purchase tickets to a backstage tour which showed you around the actual attraction. Usually it was lead
  9. Saw it again last night in Imax. It was an amazing experiance. The sound and soundtrack alone were awe-inspiring. Note that this movie was not intended or filmed in Imax so the scope is not comparable to an actual imax filmed movie, but I considered it well worth the money and so did everyone I saw it with. Two downsides though... 1) In most theaters it will only be on the screen till Thursday and 2) The "shakey-cam" style to the movie can sometimes be annoying on such a large screen, and sometimes the shear size of the frame distorts focus, but I do know some of this is intentional. NO
  10. Thanks for the kind words everyone. To be honest I was afraid of getting flamed when I posted the story and the pics. And yes I am fully aware of how lucky I am to have a wife who will go along with all my passions and antics, but it turns out even though she had a hardcore cheerleader mentality, she's really as much of a geek as me. And now that she embraced it, watch out. Actually, yesterday Trekkies 2 was on, and she was commenting on some of the uniforms not being accurate & then told me she was bidding on a uniform on ebay. I was so proud. Plus she makes an awesome Trill.
  11. CONTINUED 3>>>>>>> After our alloted time on the Bridge had ended, we were escorted to the DS9 Prominade, and to our banquet table at Quarks. Let me just say this...an Open Bar at Quark's is a wonderful thing, especially when there are actual Ferengi worried about you drinking away thier profits. Not only was everyone having literally the time of thier lives, but we had become part of the attraction itself. Other patrons of the experience stopped and took pictures commenting, offering congrats, some even wondering if our party was staged of if we actaully work
  12. CONTINUED 2>>>>>>>> As well as a number of fun shots to help capture the moment, that gave everyone the oppritunity to say that they served on a little ship named Enterprise. "Hard to starboard!" Mr Data set a coarse... Engage.
  13. CONTINUED>>>> Once on the bridge we were greated by a Female Klingon warrior, and a male Ferengi. The Klingon immeadiately began harrasing my "security" officer and took him to the tactical display for training. The Ferengi made small talk with the "hue-mans" making hilarious quips about our uniforms at every oppritunity. The minister, dressed in the White Captians Dress uniform from Insurection, noticed I was a little pale, and offered me a seat in the Captains chair. As I sat down, not only did my nausea flee from my mind, I realized all my dreams past, present, and future we
  14. I mentioned this on another thread, but felt that it would be better served as it's own topic. Sorry if it is long, but I added pictures to make it more entertaining. First off, let me just say I have the coolest wife in the Alpha Quadrent for allowing this to happen, cause at the time of our wedding she wasn't the biggest Trekker. It all started on a trip to Vegas and a visit to the now defunct (and recently re-opened) Star Trek Experience. We were waiting in line for the attraction when we viewed an advertisement for "weddings out of the world". I menationed if we were to ever
  15. I believe the Galoob figures were in production prior to the actual release of the TNG series, and made from the actual costume designs. The reason for the maroon color is that all the "red" uniforms for TNG were actualy maroon in reality. A true red uniform would have been too bright for filming, thus they were darkened. Galoob went with what they physically saw for color.
