2007 marked the 30th of Star Wars and to celebrate this historical year George Lucas himself was the Grand Marshal of the Rose Parade and followed by a garrison of Storm troopers, January 1st started a glorious year of conventions, parties, and celebrations. In May of the same year the USPS released a sheet of exquisite stamps depicting characters from all the Star Wars films. The USPS also created a very special cancellation stamp to celebrate the anniversary. One year earlier, 2006 marked the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek. Star Trek is the grand mother of making Science Fiction as popular as it is today. 11 films and 6 series have been created and a world of loyal fans follow with eager anticipation of what is coming next. To celebrate the 40th, Paramount and CBS cancelled Enterprise at the end of it’s 4th season just a couple of episodes shy of the magic 100th show. Next they pulled from their warehouse all of the costumes sets, props and models that have been hidden away for years, but not to display or put them on a tour, but to clean house. Christie’s Auction house, and it’s a wrap Hollywood both set up auctions to sell off Television and motion Picture history with no regard to the significants or importance of the treasure that was entrusted to the new executives of the Studio. To end the 40th with a bang, a demolition derby would be the last hooray and what was left was bulldozed. It is a sad time when history has no meaning and is thrown away.
