  Hi Ulf,
       This is a reply to your comment  that I left out Star Trek in
       mu movie remakes of the 60's TV shows.  The ST movies were not
       actually remakes, but however, an extention of the TV series.  The
       only filllm that came close to a remake was ST II: THE WRATH OF KAHN,
       and even at that it was a sequal to the original episode entitled,
       "Space Seed."
       The only other one that came extremely close to a remake was in the
       Next Generation Series of an episode entitle, "Naked Now", This
       seemed to me to be a ripoff of the original episode of ST, "Naked
       So I sincerely doubt that I am on the Trekker's death list, because
       any long life Trekker (Which I am one!) will see this fact. I have been
       a Trek fan since I was 13 years  of age in 1966 and I am now 41 years
       So don't tell me about any death list.....O.K.? I've faced death
       many times having cancer and open heart surgery.
       With Great Respect and sincerity,
