    "The Trekkies" was a failed pilot in the 70's that was recently re-made as a successful series on CBS, renamed "The Big Bang Theory". 🙂

    I've still got my OJ action figure tucked away somewhere. Not any of the accessories pictured in the box; they're long gone. And I think he's missing a sock, too…
