I knew right away, but I, too, didn't realize she was that age - or else it's denial that Star Trek was really that long ago!
Funny - when I was a kidlet and Star Trek first came on I was really mad that my brother insisted that we watch Star Trek because it meant I couldn't watch Bewitched, which was competing in the same timeslot!!!
The Sci Fi fan in me thanks my brother every day for winning that war!
That's sad. I love the old Star Trek shows. We get them here on Sat evening on one station that plays a lot of the oldies.
I'm with hoopee in that I remember the series but do forget it was that long ago until I see William Shatner in a current TV commercial.
Stonn was the true intended was he not? I sure don't remember without help from google.
Trek used to be the thing. I still remember standing in line for several hours to see the first Star Trek film, where the Klingons were shockingly different - in a good way - and then the time that TNG I think it was, redid the Trouble with Tribbles - Trek crew "those are Klingons?" Worf "We don't talk about that."
SPOCK: ....T'Pring. Explain.
SPOCK: Why the challenge, and why you chose my captain as your champion.
T'PRING: Stonn wanted me, I wanted him.
SPOCK: I see no logic in preferring Stonn over me.
T'PRING: You have become much known among our people, Spock. Almost a legend. And as the years went by, I came to know that I did not want to be the consort of a legend. But by the laws of our people, I could only divorce you by the kal-if-fee. There was also Stonn, who wanted very much to be my consort, and I wanted him. If your Captain were victor, he would not want me, and so I would have Stonn. If you were victor you would free me because I had dared to challenge, and again I would have Stonn. But if you did not free me, it would be the same. For you would be gone, and I would have your name and your property, and Stonn would still be there.
SPOCK: Logical. Flawlessly logical.
T'PRING: I am honoured.
SPOCK: Stonn. She is yours. After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true. Spock here. Stand by to beam up. Live long, T'Pau, and prosper.
T'PAU: Live long and prosper, Spock.
SPOCK: I shall do neither. I have killed my captain and my friend. Energize.

Nothing with horses is ever easy or cheap. And if it is, you're doing it wrong. They always rip out part of your soul when they leave. I guess that's how they find us later.
