film called “Free Enterprise”. It’s a coming of age film about
two Star Trek fans. There’s a line in the film where one of the
characters says something along the lines of “What use is it
knowing that the original airdate of ‘Plato’s Stepchildren’ is
the 12th of January 1966.”

Can I also
prefer Jim and the lads, not this Next Gen or Voyager bollocks

about his new found love and compares it to Star Trek, saying
that you know Next Gen is superb, the best there's ever been,
but somehow, classic Star Trek is the Real Thing.
