Interesting.  Problem is that when I click on the link all I get is a blank Google browser screen. 

 

We have VHS video tapes of all the original series episodes.....a large number of the "Next Generation" episodes and all the movies.

 

The Next Generation episodes were recorded off of our 12 ft. satellite dish back in the mid to late 1980's prior to scrambling of the network feeds.  Those were the fun, pioneering days.  Lots more fun than now.  You can't believe the stuff we used to be able to pick up with that big dish.  I had a Drake receiver and a very high gain amp. at the feedhorn.  (Long feedline to the house)    Only down time was during certain times of the year when....once per day...the sun would line up with the satellites (depending on which one you were pointed at at any given time) and the solar noise would wipe out the signal for a few minutes.

It may have already been 9/8 when you tried. It was really late when I opened my thread, but not as late as this one. Actually, I'm still seeing it on the Google main page, so...

 

It's not on the Doodle gallery yet.  Hopefully it'll be there when they do retire it from the main page.  The gallery is at:

I don't know why these things don't always work, and only in some browsers. Smiley Sad

 

Here's what it does, only thing this person missed is using the rock in the scene with the Gorn. Smiley Very Happy

You always remember, LOL!  Smiley Very Happy

 

Just love classic Star Trek, and it was so ahead of it's time!  It was years until I ever saw them in color. Smiley Sad

Yup, and I'm still waiting for the Transporter and doctors who can actually diagnose a person properly (and without surgery)!

 

Have you tried the ST Communicator App for your phone? Smiley Very Happy
