I'd love to hear what you think of the Internet's strangest and geekiest moments in this week's "Geek Bits."
This week's poll question comes from Invaluable.com, the world's premier online auction marketplace. Invaluable offers live auctions from all over the world covering pretty much anything you could think of. They often feature all sorts of movie memorabilia as well as other great collectibles.
If you could buy any prop from a movie what would it be? Han Solo's blaster pistol? Spock's rubber ears? Thor's hammer? What would your dream movie memorabilia piece(s) be? Let us know in the comments!

"I’m able to give my two cents when I see something that isn’t tracking, maybe pointing out that, well, you know, that spaceship doesn’t have that capacity or these two planets are closer than the script is suggesting that they are. That kind of deep universe history."

Wikipedia synopsis: Captain Kirk and First Officer Spock are mysteriously transformed into water-breathers.
This episode is a fun one even though it's ridiculously silly. The saving grace is the use of underwater equipment and it's pretty awesome. They could never have done an episode like this in the live action series and it shows the advantage of using animation. Spock and Kirk show themselves to be an unbeatable team as usual although Scotty again shows his resourcefulness. The underlying message of violence being the last resource of less advanced civilization is one more message that Roddenberry tried hard to convey.
If you're on Twitter next week we're doing a live Twitter chat of the next episode "The Slaver Weapon" on Tuesday, June 2, 2015 at 5:00 PM EDT. You can watch it on Hulu or Netflix. Join us!
