    Interesting article about photorealistic CGI:

    http://www.wired.com/design/2013/03/luxion-keyshot/

    So just one question: How long before we get a new Star Trek TOS series? (voiced by Shatner et al of course)

    @Minh:Saw him speak last and he looks to have plenty of life left in him yet.

    Shatner is doing extremely well for 81.  The rest of the cast of Star Trek, not so much.

    what I would like to see is a new story that would in some ways be a re-boot of the "Enterprise" story.

    but I would go back to some of the old TOS cannon about what the first stuff should be like.

    in an old TOS they talked about when they first fought that is was without video, that they never even saw the enemy, had to idea what they looked like.

    so a bit like say a WWII sub battle, a bit like the first few of the Enterprise episodes....

    no phasers,  transporter is still buggy, warp is full of problems, no universal translator

    artificial gravity breaks down etc...

    and the ships look more like spare parts and tin cans....  following the old tech books done years back that had a bunch of early ships listed in them....

    @figuerres:I would love to see some more classic TOS episodes done with todays' production values - and the original cast involved whenever it is practical.

    Nimoy, Takei and Koenig are still doing great, at least. The real problem though is that DeForest Kelley and James Doohan have already passed away, so they can't voice anything.

    How is Koenig doing since they found his sons body in Stanely Park during the winter olympics?

    My father is 83 and he's out right now visiting a tax client, as my father is a tax consultant and one of the most knowledgeable persons on Canadian tax law. He hasn't retired yet.

    My father paid $700 for this years tax software program. About the same that I'll be paying soon for Visual Studio 2012, a far more complex software, probably.

    @MikeInOhio:VS2012 - If you have the Pro edition check under options (I think there is an option to enable tax returns in there)
