I think the only character I like from TNG is Picard. The rest are pale imitations of what a Star Trek character should be. Data was a pale imitation? 8O He may have been another take on Spock, but also different and new in a lot of ways. As for "new fans", keep in mind that a lot of these "new fan...

One might think that the free exchange of ideas of the Federation might generate tech to defeat the Borg, but there's 2 problems with that: 1.) The Borg can just assimilate it. :roll: 2.) According to the dialogue of Endgame, the episode where they appear, ablative hull armor and transphasic torpedo...

We haven't seen any Jem Hadar drones. Is it because: 1.) Writing - DS9 Jem Hadar and Voyager Borg were mutually exclusive in the writer's room? 2.) Borg and Dominion space is too far apart at the moment? 3.) Jem Hadar would be unsuitable drones due to the genetic addiction to Ketracel White? 4.) Bor...

Ferengi?? :lol: Feds would take over the galaxy IF AND ONLY IF they maintained long-term negotiations with all the other empires, eventually forming alliances with the larger ones, and staving off dire threats like the Borg and the Dominion for centuries. Realistically, the Borg should have taken ov...

Lots of people love this moive. Lots of people who hate this movie. For the people who hate this movie but Love The Next Generation and after, remember, the die hards of TOS, hated anything after it also, so basiacally you are just like them then. No. Stop equivocating. TNG built on Star Trek and t...

- Species 125 could have been the 125th (124th? Is Species 001 the original Borg species?) humanoid species the Borg encountered, but wouldn't have to be the 125/124th one they assimilated. Maybe they were a highly resistant species, who held out for many centuries. Maybe they were still holding out...

mickar: I'd say it's worth a matinee -- even if you hate it, you will have a lot to hate and therefore discuss. If you enjoy complaining, this movie could give you lots of fuel. :lol:

It's only "utter nonsense" because you choose to see it that way. You obviously know nothing about the Bible Yet I was raised as a Christian. I know far more about Christianity than you think. you believe the utter nonsense of Macro evolution simply because you were taught it was true, even though ...

To play devil's advocate from another angle - science (as it exists) is far from exempt or holy. There is plenty of dogma and stubborn belief present in science. Accepted theories are published and funded, non-accepted theories meet with ridicule. It's a new take on an old theme. In a sense, popular...

eber3 - I may disagree with your fossil-record proselytizing, but your "Star Trek" review is right on. Jar Jar Abrams... HA. Love it. "Yousa thinkin, Star Trek gonna die???" :lol: stardust - decent and original story ... intelligence ... hmmm. Those aren't accepted in Hollywood anymore. This is a ne...

If you want to see life only through a filter, that's your business. But when you jump into a discussion spouting utter nonsense, you make it my business. "Some scientists had a fossil reconstruction wrong, therefore all fossil reconstructions are wrong" -- that's called fallacy. Any RELIGION held t...

Personally though, I would estimate that the US economy is going to see at least 20% inflation or more over the next 5 years because of the bailout insanity. you've got absolutely no idea what you're talking about, and the sentence quoted is simply absolute rubbish. Really? Drinking the koolaid aga...

Uh, so you're saying God created everything all at once, and nothing evolved? ... well whatever. I think scientists get a lot of things wrong, but we know a whole lot more now than when the catholic church was in control of what knowledge could and couldn't be taught. :roll: There's too much evidenc...

I'm usually against piracy in general, but I definitely support the downloading of this movie. I doubt it would affect the box office numbers, but at least you won't waste your money on crap. And maybe it could be turned into a fan-based protest. Like "Download Star Trek -- Abrams, Get LOST!" But an...
