On Movies & Movie Collecting: Red Alert! Red Alert! A Quick Update on My ‘Star Trek’ 6-Movie Box Set

James T. Kirk: Mr. Sulu, ahead warp one.

Hikaru Sulu: Warp one, sir.

Chief DiFalco: Heading, sir?

James T. Kirk: Out there. Thataway – Star Trek: The Motion Picture (final lines)

Before I log off from my computer for the night, I just want to give you a quick update regarding my Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture 6-Movie Collection box set:

As it turns out, as I was finishing my first blog post for today, UPS handed over the Amazon package to the U.S. Postal Service at the Post Office in Lithia, and as of 12:40 PM, it was being prepared for a delivery tomorrow afternoon.

According to the information on the tracking page on the Postal Service’s website, my 2.7 lb. box is scheduled to be dropped off by 3:15 PM on Tuesday, September 13.

Well, if all goes well and a Klingon boarding party doesn’t intercept the Post Office delivery van on the way to Fish Hawk, I’ll have my six-films, nine-cuts box set of Star Trek movies – in glorious 4K UHD Blu-ray video – tomorrow afternoon.

Oh, Warp 10 excitement!

James T. Kirk: Captain Sulu! As much to the crew of the Enterprise, I owe you my thanks.

Capt. Hikaru Sulu: Nice to see you in action for one more time, Captain Kirk. Take care. [Excelsior leaves]

Commander Leonard McCoy: By God, that’s a big ship.

Montgomery Scott: Not so big as her captain, I think.

Commander Pavel Chekov: So, this is goodbye.

Kirk: I think it’s about time we got underway ourselves. [sits on captain’s chair]

Commander Nyota Uhura: Captain, I have orders from Starfleet Command. We’re to put back to Spacedock immediately…to be decommissioned. [long pause as Kirk contemplates the order]

Spock: If I were human, I believe my response would be…go to Hell. [Kirk looks at Spock] If I were human.

Chekov: Course heading, Captain?

Kirk: Second star to the right…and straight on till morning.
