Marathon - Could you do it?
 
If you were given the chance to win a contest of watching EVERY series (including animated), movie and documentary of Star Trek with only 1 hour naps per 8 hours.. for like money or something would you do it?

Shooooooooot....I would :D

No, I would die of boredom.

Oh dear god... I love Star Trek to death but it depends on how much money or an actual cool job working for Star Trek. if I didn't have three jobs...a career in film to pursue...pets...and a need for sleep...and have been cut off from anything star trek for years.... I can do it. As for now I've been buying the voyager dvds and chucking several episodes a night before I sleep. Voyager episodes make great bedtime stories.

I have a tough time of sitting through two hours of anything, even things I like, without needing a long break afterwards to do other things. At that rate, it would take me at least more than five years to watch every Trek episode, movie, and documentary. At the very minimum, it's about a thousand hours.

I'd also fear watching that much Trek back-to-back may not be good for my fandom, really...

Has anyone computed the actual length of such a marathon?

trekkiemom 03-15-2008 01:53 PM

I'd give it a shot...

If I were also issued some, er, Special Adult Refreshments I'd not only watch all Treks, but all the extended LotRs and HPotters too.

Saquist 03-15-2008 03:25 PM

I would so do it and I wouldn't doubt I would see all of them.

Would try if the prize was worthwhile to my family. Otherwise, no way. Love watching Trek, but that'd be a waste of several days to weeks.
