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?

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.

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.
