Lego Star Ship Enterprise
After that super long explanation, I have been waiting anxiously for my oldest, who is six, to want to watch it with me. With the most recent film, Star Trek Into Darkness, it finally happened!!
After watching to movie, he built his own version of the Enterprise from our bucket of legos and made his Mama proud.
He built it without any help, without any parental supervision, and without prodding from me, I promise.
I mean, look at that symmetry!
He put 2 matching nacelles and the main engine hull (that cilindrical thing on the bottom).
I just love it.
I remember watching reruns of the original series in the eighties and watching the movies for the first time. When I showed my son my favorite one Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home - you know the one with the whales, my son told me, "I want to watch the real Captain Kirk", meaning Chris Pine and not William Shatner.
All I could do was laugh.
Ich wuensche euch allen ein Frohes Neues Jahr! (Basically, Happy New Year in German.)
