Were You There?

On February 20, 1983, ABC-TV presented the first broadcast of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
Above is the two-page ad in TV Guide.

Did you watch?  I was ready, sports fans, and made a video recording.  How thrilling to see the new footage!
I wasn't the only one thrilled, as evidenced by the above letter printed in the March 19, 1983 issue of TV Guide.
Don't ask me why, but I took at least one photo of the TV screen during the showing too. This is the scene when Kirk arrives at Engineering to put the whammy on Captain Decker.  Kirk is looking down over the railing to where Decker and Scott are.  Next, Kirk will hop onto the one-man elevator and lower himself so as to lower the boom.

Speaking of BOOM, this is the end of TREKKING WITH CLIPPINGS.  Sneak back here on Saturday, October 1, for the beginning of this year's BLOG-O-WEEN!  With new posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the whole freakin' month!

Be there or BE SCARED!
