I Think He Looks Sketchy Too

From the July 20, 1993 National Enquirer:

I ain't sayin' that at least once, Princess Margaret or the Queen Mother ain't gotten bombed, but that's between the porcelain throne and their security detail.

See you Monday for more TREKKING WITH CLIPPINGS!

Merch Trek, Part 1

Yup, crass commercialism reaches into Trekkies' pockets!
Didn't you buy a lot of bubble-gum packs?  I sure did!
Although I had a lot of the small figures, I never got the JC Penney bridge set.
Did you play this game?  We didn't have Vectrex, or any other game systems.
I must confess that when STII came out on video, I borrowed money from my boss to buy it, paying it back in bits, because Joyce would have gotten mad at me for blowing FORTY BUCKS on a video.

  • Topps Bubble Gum cards wrapper -- from 1979
  • JC Penney Christmas catalog -- December 1980
  • STTMP videogame review comes the September 1982 Video Review
  • The ST II video ad ran in The Dallas Morning News of November 12, 1982
See you Thursday!
