Yes, a random selection of some of my outer space and sci-fi themed themed things.  I only got the Star Trek The Next Generation Blu-Rays recently – I had choice between that and the TOS, which was actually slightly more expensive.

A few of my favourite things… Middle-Earth

Actually, what this thing is, is MERP – the Middle Earth Role Playing game.  Yes, it was a pen and paper roleplaying game set in Tolkien’s Middle-Earth, designed in the USA, produced in the UK by Games Workshop (don’t know what’s happened to them since).
