Wagon Train is close?

That'd be Star Trek: The Original Series then

I knew someone would pick up that old "Wagon Train to the stars" line. You are indeed correct and it's your turn!

This fits (I guess I'll put SPOILER tags on this ten-year-old sci-fi movie)

EXCEPT this is the TV thread and not the movie one, so never mind! D'oh!

Corrected the spelling for this line-item.

Also re-alphabetized A-Team to the top. Wasn't sure about hyphens; some places recommend ignoring. An alphabetizer site stuck it to the top though.
