A little off topic but I think Trek modelers will appreciate knowing whats going on.......
The first model I ever built was the old AMT kit of the Enterprise. I know I am not alone on this especially if your in my age group. I remember the lighted kit even. I used to bring my built kits into show and tell in elementary school. Star Trek got me into modeling. Always a thrill as a child to see new Star Trek kit on the shelf and inspect the parts on the way home in the car because I -just couldnt wait-. Happy memorys.
The Star Trek franchise has spawned dozens of successful popular model kits over decades and no doubt brought many into the hobby.
Polar Lights produced a huge NX-01 recently.
The sad news that Star Trek Enteprise has been cancelled was not unforseen but still truly unfortunate as this latest season the show has improved considerably.
A large fan campaign has been started to save Enterprise. Funding BY fans for a fifth season has raised nearly 3.1 million dollars so far. This has never happened before in entertainment history. It is a serious effort and not just a bunch of "trekkies" hiding from lifes challenges.
Major contributers were entrepreneurs from the commerical aerospace field. These are the same people that make things like SpaceShipOne happen. Doers and achievers. People who are inspired by a positive vision of tomorrows tomorrow.
Some of the reasons they feel strongly about it.....
If your a fan and agree with the above sentiment. Please come and visit and join the campaign. Thanks for looking.
