I'm a big fan of Star Trek and I love the ad. Can't see why any Trekies would disaprove unless they just take themselves and the series way too seriously. I especially love the line, "For what Star Fleet just ponied up for this big screen tv, settling for cable would be illogical." The thought that Star Fleet "ponied up" big bucks for a big screen tv for the Enterprise crew just cracks me up!
For the record, that is from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. And as much as it pains me to agree with a Steeler's fan* it is a great commercial. I think they just put a bunch of makeup on Shatner. X-Men 3 had Patrick Stewart and whats-his-name digitally enhanced and it looked a LOT better than Shatner in that commercial.
(* actually, my girlfriend is a huge Steelers fan. I still don't get her terrible towel and Gorgonzola has to do with football ..... guess that's another topic for another thread.)
