Star Trekkin - the high school edition

As part of my father's day present this year, I am now officially set up to "digitize" some of the old home videos that are kicking around. Right now we're watching/encoding birthday parties, Christmases, and other family gatherings from years gone by...while we work through those, I figured I'd share this shorter one with the world.

Over Spring Break of 1992, about 100 students from Viewmont High School took a trip down to California. We had a bunch of fun at the beach and theme parks in the areas. While we were at Universal Studios, a large chunk of Viewmont Vikings were lucky enough to be chosen to take part in the Star Trek Experience!!!

Without further ado, here's the lovely video that came as a result.  Enjoy.

I'm a closet Star Trek fan, as well as Stargate and Starwars!

Sharing that on the Internet is pretty much as brave as the young cadet who decided to completely "scalp" the Klingon bare-handed.

Brilliant! :)

Which STAR TREK series was your favourite, Okie?

Okie said...

lol...glad to hear that y'all enjoyed it. :)

@Dezmond - Of the series I have seen, I generally prefer Next Generation. Still, I have a nostalgic love for the original series and remember watching it as a kid and having tons of fun with it. For some reason I was never able to get into Deep Space Nine. I liked Voyager at first since it seemed to herald back to the original series (in that they were separated from the Federation and having to essentially start from scratch in totally unknown areas) but it grew stale for me. And I never actually watched Enterprise...just never caught the inkling.

Yep, DEEP SPACE NINE was overly philosophic :) I liked VOYAGER because it was often very scientific and as you said far away from Earth and thus exotic and intriguing. ENTERPRISE was good only if you got used to it (or watched it daily like I did).
