    Is anyone else surprised that there hasn't been more merchandising for New Trek?

    Where's the movie tie-in game? Not that I'd buy it on the principle that movie tie-ins ALWAYS suck but I can't believe they didn't make it.

    Where's the T-shirts?

    The T.V. special?

    The action figures? (more than just the two basic collections out there-think Sideshow Collectibles or Legos or something)

    I'm just a little surprised I haven't seen more than two action figure collections and a light-up ship model. Oh, and one very cheesy looking toy phaser.

    My top manager sent me a forwarded email today about a free screening of the new Trek by a company doing IT database stuff. I sent him back this email:

    I'm pretty sure I could pass for IT.....
    *coughcough* I feel a cold coming on and will probably be sick on the 8th of May.

    I think Leah is more excited about this movie than I am but then again, she's about as big a ST fan as I am a SW fan. [face_mischief]

    So it only looks screen accurate?

    None of the on-screen super potency effects that would render it illegal?

    Now I'm sad again.
