With Star Wars Day just a few weeks away, I thought it'd be nice to share this with y'all. It's a 3d scan of the Tickle-me-Elmo doll that I encased in Carbonite earlier this year. The side panels didn't come out well in the scan, so I digitally removed them and replaced them with the stls from the Han Solo panels I've previously uploaded.

I don't like the "share if you..." crap. But I detest the idea of another Bush in the oval office again! #sad

I will ensure my vote goes to NOT Bush.

I'm really growing weary of War(s).

Then again....

I dunno, maybe it's "The Inner Light" (Star Trek: The Next Generation) This episode brings tears to my eyes just to think of it. Picard lives a lifetime and learns to play flute as he's exposed to a civilization's accomplishments via a probe satellite sent by the now long deceased civilization. All in the course of twenty five minutes of unconsciousness.

If you could choose one episode or film to get a Star Trek newbie hooked on the franchise, which would you choose?
