I was in around 2nd grade. EVERY afternoon at 5PM, Star Trek was on, my Brother and I would ALWAYS watch. We liked em all but "Doomsday Machine" was a DO NOT miss episode. We'd always watch the first few seconds to look for TWO Security guards on the bridge. That was the giveaway that it's "Doomsday". WELLLL...... One day, we see the Guards.....The Enterprise is approaching the damaged USS Constellation. We were looking at each other excited. It was OUR episode! RIGHT as Kirk says "She (Constellation) was attacked!!!" ........................ POP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! goes a tube!! LOLOLOLOL We simultaneously yelled....NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, fell off the couch and onto the floor. Mom came in from the Kitchen and just looked at us and nodded in disgust. LOLOL
