Re: Help me name my ship...

If you are looking for British names for a ship: USS David Cameron I've had a running 'gag' in Roleplaying games where I will name a runabout the "USS Bill Clinton" being an American President he does have name recognition -- I just always found it kinda funny. Y'know, we don't see many names of As...

Re: Half-Trill

Well two things: First. In Host, Didn't Riker almost die when he had the symbiont inside of him? Sounds to me like there is an inherent genetic flaw in humans. Reading further, (care of Wikipedia for what its worth) it would appear that Trill are strongly allergic to insect bites because the toxins ...

Re: New Villian: Benicio Del Toro?

Personally, I like this guy and he is just unusual enough to play a great ST villain.

Re: Civilian shuttles?

Actually, Galaxy-class ships have 20 Transporter rooms. This was stated in episode "11001001" with the Bynars. So at minimum you're looking at 120 people per transport, and really, it's more. We've seen them beam entire groups back before. Plus if you add in all the large format transporters in the...

Re: Civilian shuttles?

While I agree with Maxwell in the most part, for arguments point, I could very well see "Civilian Transport Ships" (CTS) housing a large number of smaller 'shuttle' type vessels for the purposes of Loading and Unloading passengers. We always see Civilians and Guests using Transporter Rooms to board ...

Re: what goes on in their minds sometimes?

all the other stuff you have to suspend disbelief on to watch trek (you're not suspending belief watching trek, you're suspending disbelief) and the aliens costumes hang you up and override your suspension of disbelief? I find myself thinking the exact same couple lines on pretty much every Star Tr...

Re: Your Favorite Trek Moment

Hands down: Picard's "Line must be drawn here" speech from First Contact. It takes our normally clear-thinking and level-headed Captain and displays him cracking under a stressful situation. FANTASTIC and very human moment.

Re: Interesting Write-up: "Why Isn’t There A New Star Trek s

I think that, regardless of how a future show would be, that it would still have its vocal detractors. One of my few "Demands" of the show is that I would rather see the Traditional/Episodic type series where problems are discovered and solved in span of a single episode. Perhaps the occasional a "T...

Re: Interesting Write-up: "Why Isn’t There A New Star Trek s

Bryan Fuller, who is also mentioned, was a Writer for DS9 and Voyager -- he's also lent his name to the show "Heros" The dude has interest, I'd let him run with it and at least get a draft out and pitch it around.

Re: "Walking Dead" Season 2 premires Sunday!

So did anyone watch? Your thoughts? The "Zombie Parade" (for lack of a better word) had me on the edge of my seat as they zombies crept past the hidden survivors-- sure, it was in the preview commercial but good all the same. I was disappointed with the 'church scene', namely because I was expecting...

Re: Are you an Imperial or Rebel, Seperatist or Republican?

The Test made me a Republican -- which I guess is Empire-lite or what was once noble before becoming corrupted. This is funny because I always felt kinda bad for the Stormtrooper. He is just some jerk trying to cut a check and see to it that his family on Coruscant is provided for -- he may not nece...
