Didn't Captain Kirk manage to defeat one of those evil artificial intelligence takeovers by reading from the Collected Puns & Limericks of Seamus Muldoon?
Meanwhile, 200 comments later, I return...
I've mentioned this before. I'm mentioning it again.
I warned you I might be back. Took a long time to catch up on some 300 comments, but I did it. But, now it's time to check out.
Laurie David's Cervix: Living in the post ST:TNG era, by flipping the nacelle pylons to below the secondary hull, the ship gets a Federation/Klingon hybrid vibe.
Laurie David's Cervix: The new Trek TV series has a name and a ship: Star Trek: Discovery...
Can anyone watch that and not think of the similar scene from Galaxy Quest?
I'm so done with Star Trek and Star Wars I didn't bother reading the article.
I did, almost, accidentally, read someone's comment about the article.
Aetius451AD: Data... Well, he was FULLY functional.
With interchangeable appliance attachments, so they say.
speedster1: What, no toasters in space?
Political Hat: There's a Star Trek TNG episode where Rike falls in love with an androgynous alien from a species that doesn't have different biological sexes.
All Hail Eris #208: Heck, the first episode of Lost in Space was semi-serious.
Taiwan's Cold War legacy
On Vulcan we have a saying, "Only Nixon could sell out China."
The kids in that Roswell series had their secret lair in that same angled-up rock place. Little did Kirk suspect!
otho: The Rise Of The Machines...
Anna Puma: Which one? Colossus or Skynet?
And, IIRC, Kirk never actually said "Beam me up, Scotty."
Not so sure, but I don't think Gracie ever responded to "Say good night, Gracie," with, "Good night, Gracie!"
Insomniac: Nutloaf for Thanksgiving? You are not of the body...
Christmas, not Thanksgiving!
We had bacon with the brunch. Does that get me reinstated?
Picard mistakenly saying "Lt. Broccoli."
Best Trek line ever.
And with that, I retire to mine holodeck.
Is there other Intelligent Life "out there"? If not, why not? If so, will we ever contact them? Comparison of some ideas, science-fiction notions, and what The Urantia Book says.
Re: Fermi's paradox
I confess to the guilty pleasure of watching the imitation-TOS series Star Trek Continues. Mostly, it's fun to see James Doohan's son playing Scotty.
Oh, another ambush of reflugicans is happening? I'll try to contain my excitement.
I enjoy watching comments on AoS about it. That's as deep into it as I can get.
Star Trek: Where there is "no need for money".
That's because the only drink you could by is Synthehol™ - why bother?
Leave you with this, Trek fans:
Odd-numbered Beethoven symphonies don't suck, either.
Good night, Gracies!
chemjeff: oops Greek letter sock/off
It was fortuitous
* points, laughs at Xi's Trekky comment *
(but I really don't remember the movie)
I have a copy of a fan edit of Generations (that was the Kirk-Picard movie, right?) - with the Kirk/TOS parts edited out. I'd read that it made it kind-of a decent Trek Next Gen episode.
I don't wish to join in kicking some has-been Star Trek actor with lingering sexual and other mental problems, but that is some tight work on the Takai graphic, Dianny. Seamless.
StarTrek.com's article on Whitney.
Spock's most memorable moment
Leonard Nimoy in a pop culture clash
Daughter was mentioning today that someone told her about Nimoy's lamentable musical release, which included a song about hobbits. Then I pulled up that video and played it for her cold.
