CBS Consumer and ReedPOP Team Up to Give Us Star Trek: Mission New York

In honor of Star Trek's 50th Anniversary, ReedPOP and CBS Consumer Products are joining forces to give us all they've got in the form of an all-new, original Star Trek fan experience. 

I am really excited about this, because unlike Wilderowens, I am a recent Trek lover. What can I say? I grew up in a Star Wars home. But I am loving what I'm seeing. I've watched all the movies, but I really hadn't done much with the shows until recently. I can't tell you how badly I'm slapping myself for not doing this sooner. And that's why I'm so excited about it ST: MNY. This will be the first time I can truly be a part of this amazing community. My goal is to try and finish all the shows, yes, including Enterprise, by Mission. I'm not sure I'll be able to do it, but I'm going to try. So, while I go and watch a few more episodes of Next Gen, you should read the press release and learn more.
