trekkiecougar: Dallymo: goodole312: trekkiecougar: Yep, the Warrior and I have been watching this online and on tv (Discovery and Velocity channels are showing it) since one hour until launch.No one believes that I read about this in a Star Trek novel! Now I'm going to have to go to my local branch of the library and find the Star Trek novel that I read years ago that had Kirk and some other character doing skydiving that originated from a platform up in space.that was the cut opening from one of the movies wasn't it? i wana say generationsStar Trek (2009) had them diving to the drilling platform on Vulcan. I totally forgot about it being in (or being sliced from) one of the movies, thanks for reminding me. I'm still going to hit the library, I believe the space diving incident was in a novel involving some of the OS crew.
