    Ah yes....the Famous Klingon K'leavege. Made possible due to the K'ross yer K'heart uniform. :)

    It's able to upgrade a scout to a DD7 heavy cruiser! LOL!

    I wet my pants during that scene, too cause the bips and beeps from his panel where in tune with the song!

    Well, I wouldn't even have gotten close (Imagine that).

    The OPENING bid on the Ressikan Flute was $13,000.00 The Final Bid price was $40,000.00. Add to that the closing fees and buyer's premium, and the flute was out that door for $48,000.00.

    It makes one wonder how Christie's Auction House could be so wrong in their estimates. Did they low ball the numbers, hoping to get an extra news cycle? Or are they just incompetent when it comes to Star Trek?

    The total auction brought in more than $7,000,000.00

    I would love to have that flute. Maybe someday when I become independently wealthy. :) I agree MichaelEdward, it was one of the best episodes ever.

    The later I think. But you can hardly blame them. All the start trek fans I know who would spend 48,000 dollars for a Ressikan Flute are not people I would suspect actually had 48,000 dollars.

    Are Warren Buffet and Bill Gates closet trekers?

    So, I'm back stuck in a hotel room in Fargo, ND. Expecting Snow tonight, Oh, Joy. They got Spike TV on the tele ... thisafternoon ... back to back 'Reunification I & II' is being broadcast.

    It is a Good Day.

    Picard, Sarek, Spock, Klingons, Romulans.

    Hope, anti-prejudice, politics.

    It IS a Good Day.
