Back in college in September 1987, 15 of my friends and I gathered around a TV set in the largest suite we could find at 8PM, conveniently just after Yom Kippur had ended, to break our fast and eagerly watch the first episode, Encounter at Farpoint.
We hated it.
But it was Trek, so we watched it for the next 7 years and it got better.
"Stop it? I'm counting on it."
"But not because you threaten me. I'll pay you because... it's my pleasure."
