Regular readers of this space or who see me goofing on Twitter or Facebook know I love Trek stuff that gets whimsical, even silly, on occasion. Some of the merchandise that has fun with the franchise, while it may annoy the uber-serious fans who feel Trek deserves to be “treated with more respect,” blah blah blah, makes me smile, because it reminds me of how much *FUN* I had being a fan of the original show back when I was a kid. Running around our neighborhood pretending to be Kirk and the gang, fighting Klingons and shooting each other with our Tracer Guns, while jabbering into our bulky, oversized Mego communicator/walkie talkies, and so on.
