Amazon, I call a logic flaw!

For those of you that haven't seen this yet today take a gander here.

At first that seems quite impressive, and excessive.

Then next you think "well I'm sure the trekkies will want to buy that."

That's where the logic flaw comes into play. The people that *are* trekkies already purchased the various episodes and movies on DVD. They've had them and have watched them at least thirty times each.

And you can't use the line "well if I had the money to spend in that, I'd certainly get it.." Why? If you *DID* have the money to buy this set, you would have already purchased all the various versions already, too.

So riddle me this. Whom is this set designed for?

I don't obsess about Trek, but I obsess about certain music labels enough to know that it doesn't matter if you already HAVE the entire collection in another form - a true obsessive collector will want this set simply because it's out there and it's different than the ones they already have.

I speak from ashamed (but not Trekashamed) experience.

That's the thing. There's nothing new with this set. It's simply a collection of the various TV and Movie sets that are already out there and available.

I can understand them doing it if these were a repackage, but they aren't even doing that.

Okay... That works. So this collection is made for people that won the lottery. There we go, I now have an answer.

I just can't believe the price tag on that thing. 2500 bucks? And I'd rather buy them separately, cause well I didn't like all the star treks. I liked Next Gen, and I liked Voyager and Deep Space Nine, but I never could get into "Enterprise". I kept waiting for him to "leap".
