Hey TrekTV, @Trekkiebogle here with some longer than 140 character information for you. I was listening to your The Motion Picture episode when I was out running the other day and was laughing at your obsession over the BWANGONONONOOOOOOOONNNNNNNN sound that V'Ger makes throughout the movie. *insert sound here* Later that evening I was finishing reading Star Trek 365 which I got as a Christmas gift and found a mention of it. Apparently that is an actual instrument called a "Blaster Beam" and was invented by two time Star Trek child star Craig Hundley. He appeared as Peter Kirk, Captain Kirk's nephew in Operation -- Annihilate! and Tommy Starnes, the leader of the kid gang in the Emmy eligible episode And The Children Shall Lead. I did some more research on Memory Alpha and discovered he also did the music for the Genesis flyover sequences used in Star Trek II and III. Glad to have you all back from your hiatus and am looking forward to more episodes in the future. Live long, and prosper!
