Various Star Trek Tidbits

Star Trek In Space
International Space Station astronauts got a treat as they got to watch the new movie on a laptop, and since one of the few legal copies out there, they get to watch it as much as they want. Mr. Barratt, 50, Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka, 50, and Koichi Wakata, 46, of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency settled into the node, named “Unity,” after dinner and secured their feet with floor straps to keep from floating during the screening, NASA spokeswoman Nicole Cloutier said.

Obama Reviews Star Trek
Speaking of special screenings, President Obama was able to watch Star Trek at the White House and said it good. He even went so far as to do the Vulcan salute for the reporter.

TOS Tribble for Sale?
Someone on eBay has what they call a real The Original Series Tribble from the episode "The Trouble with Tribbles" that still works once you insert the AA batteries. Supposedly it comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Chris Doohan, son of James Doohan (Scotty). If you have $5000, it can be yours.

Chris Hemsworth Is Thor
The actor who played George Kirk, dad of James T. in the movie is set to become Thor for the Marvel Comics movie which is part of the build up to the Avengers movie. The movie is currently scheduled for May 20th, 2011 release date with Kenneth Branagh directing.
