  • Ah Kirk you old scallywag!  My Mom hates him.  I'm like, what's the big deal?

  • Well I refuse to see him as "just a woman humper".  Even if he did do a lot of that.  I was surprised to find out that my Mom is not a Trekkie.  We always watched the re-runs together when I was growing up, why wasn't she one??  Well I guess it was just what was on before dinner or something.  Maybe there's hope for her, she seems to like The Next Generation well enough.  It's The Original Series which she doesn't seem too happy with.  That show, did so much to be progressive back in its day.  Seems unfair; maybe I should try to explain it to her sometime.  Maybe the reality will remain that in her opinion, they didn't go far enough, something that really couldn't be done until TNG or Voyager.

  •    I envy you having a living mother.  Mine was very intelligent but never a scifi fan.  She would have had opinions should she have watched any ;)  And probably, yes, they didn't go far enough.

      Frankly, Kirk wasn't and isn't a character I admire or would want to emulate, most of the time.  I do agree that the original series was groundbreaking and (pause while I pet a very sweet ferret and erase his typing....) [K, furlet hung around my neck out of troublemaking range] significantly advanced gender and racial equality in the US. (and other countries? Suspect so, but need to check that).
      I've watched pretty much all of the Star Trek series and movies, but for some reason, prefer the Star Wars stuff more.  Dunno why.  More fight scenes ?  No.  Less lame weapons than those dumb "phasers"?  Yeh.  It's probably something with the details.  Both have interesting and more-or-less plausible overarching plots, and their characters and actors are adequate to good (in my personal, biased opinion).
    All this talk of fungus and worms makes me hungry...

  • I've gotten myself in trouble with Star Wars debates, so in this particular thread I'll beg off!  Returning you to your regularly scheduled "I am not a bot" program.

    Richard Baxton piloted his Recon Rover into a fungal vortex and held off four waves of mind worms, saving an entire colony. We immediately purchased his identity manifests and repackaged him into the Recon Rover Rick character with a multi-tiered media campaign: televids, touchbooks, holos, psi-tours? the works. People need heroes. They don't need to know how he died clawing his eyes out, screaming for mercy. The real story would just hurt sales, and dampen the spirits of our customers.
