There were some weird-ass Star Trek TNG movies now that I think about it. In one, Insurrection, Picard walks into the room, orders music on the computer, and starts dancing to Mambo. I guess bcz Insurrection was a feature film they figured the characters have to do "big things", "relax a little". This was the times when Trek movies were largely fan affairs, and their scripting, even directing would be kept "in the family". Good times.


Link Yeltsin was deeply unpopular at that time in Russia, polling no more than 8% and widely blamed for the rise of the gangster oligarch...
