I downloaded all my CDs into iTunes on my computer and then moved everything to my MP3 player.  I don't know enough about iPads to know if you could do this or not.

That's exactly how it works.  You can choose to put all of the songs in iTunes onto your iPad, or just select some of them.

In Star Trek (the movies), the Federation has a space dock for its ships.  Where do the Klingons and Romulans keep their spaceships?  Presumably in a spacedock of their own?

I would guess that the home planet of the Romulans is Romulus.  What is the Klingons' home planet?  Is it ever mentioned?

(I got to watching the movies tonight)

And to further geek myself out, on TOS episode "Balance of Terror", the Romulans live on (get ready) Romulus and Remus.  There was apparently a war, with a Neutral Zone set up much like the one between Earth and the Klingons.  The Romulans, according to Spock, are an offshoot of Vulcans who became militaristic and not logical. 

Saavik, in The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock, is supposed to be half-Romulan and half-Vulcan.  It makes sense that she might still remember Vulcan customs per her ancestry.

And you're right, Quo'nos is mentioned in The Undiscovered Country.  Its moon, Praxis, explodes, setting off the events of the movie.

I have sort of a spin-off question about weird body noises. Does anyone else hear a weird hissing sort of noise in the back of their neck when they're really hungry? It kind of sounds like water tricking through a very tiny hose. Is this normal? What causes it?

--- End quote ---

Yup. Well, not always when I'm hungry but I often hear a gurgling noise in my neck.

sevenday:
It might be saliva.  I know if I'm really hungry my body sometimes overproduces it, so maybe it IS water running through a tiny hose :P

Well, the Romulans live on Romulus, the Remans live on Remus. We got to meet the Remans in the movie Star Trek: Nemesis, where the delicious Tom Hardy played a clone of Jean Luc Picard.  ;)

The Romulans are an off shoot of the Vulcans (and very much look it) , but the Remans are something far more reptilian and have been used as a slave race by the Romulans for centuries.
