Best Nativity scene ever

    Love it. But...

    There should be a Lego brick in the crib. Lego is the greatest possible toy. Therefore, by definition, Lego is the god of the toy world.

    Troi is one herself. Her father was human.

    Wanna see my rubber Spock ears?

  • archaeopteryx

    @GM, you're RIGHT! I had forgotten - that makes their baby only a quarter Betazed.

    RE: "Wanna see my rubber Spock ears?" - unnecessary, they couldn't look all that different from my own. I once met Leonard Nimoy, he signed my son's birthday card.

    Well, that depends. Was this an immaculate conception? If so the brat is 100% God. Women never get the credit for anything in religion.

    What if I told you a scene of mine, taken from a script I wrote for Star Trek: DS9, was used in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise? 

    Nah. Never mind. I wouldn't believe me either. So I won't tell you.

    Actually, when I met Nimoy, it was at the Director's Guild, along with long-time ST producer, Harve Bennett, so yes, I quite likely would. I could not understand Paramount cancelling "Enterprise," with Scott Bakula - I thought it was great.

  • Gallup's Mirror

    As the man once said: fascinating. How did you come to be there?

    Enterprise started out as a snooze. The pacing was awful. In the old Star Trek, they beamed down in seconds. The story pressed forward. In Enterprise, there were long scenes with space suits, space walks, little shuttles leaving the ship, and looking for places to land.

    I was making fists in my hair wondering why the producers thought we'd care to watch the cast commute to work over and over every week. Why not dedicate an entire episode to watching each cast member take a dump in zero gravity? 

    Then, slowly, it got good, They started using the transporter to go places.The story moved. They did interesting stuff. They said interesting things.

    Then it got really good. The temporal cold war. In a Mirror, Darkly. Fun stuff!

    Then it got cancelled. I think they blew it early on with those plodding episodes and shed too much of their audience as a result.

    I attended a pre-release screening of ST IV The Search For Spock, which Nimoy directed. In the huge theater located in the Director's Guild there on Sunset.

    RE "Enterprise" - but that's as it SHOULD have been! Enterprise was a prequel to the ST Classic, with which we're all familiar. They were just learning about Klingons, and a Vulcan was aboard only because the Vulcans had, only a few decades earlier, invited Earth to join the Federation once we had discovered warp drive. They took shuttles because transporter technology was new, unfamiliar territory  to them, as as such, untrustworthy - who wanted to be first to have his atoms scrambled, then reassembled in another location, hopefully not inside a rock? The phaser was new, also unfamiliar. Their "shields" consisted not of force fields, but of additional armored plating. They were in transition between the world we live in, and the world of classic ST, and we were there to watch them make it. I enjoyed every episode, possibly even more than ST classic, just because I enjoyed watching them bridge the gap by baby steps. And I've enjoyed everything Bakula has done since "Quantum Leap."

    If we all stay real still, maybe the T-REX wont see us. Anyone seen Robin?

  • kOrsan

    Robin is probably busy redecorating the batcave he just inherited.

  • Gallup's Mirror

    Anyone seen Robin?

    He's probably out looking for Batman's missing briefs. Superman is missing his as well.

    Someone is stealing superhero undies. It's gotta be the Joker.  

  • archaeopteryx

    I think they  both got costume revamps - I mean, 1938 to 2012 is a long time to wear your boxers outside of your costume.

  • Gallup's Mirror

    I see Wonder Woman has lost her undies too. Luckily she managed to get some pants on first.

    I think they  both got costume revamps - I mean, 1938 to 2012 is a long time to wear your boxers outside of your costume.

    Or to wear a costume consisting of underwear and nothing else. Wonder-Woman was created by a man during World War II and illustrated essentially as a pin-up girl. 

  • archaeopteryx

    Oh Man! - pants? Really?

    At least she could have chosen invisible pants, made out of the same material as her invisible plane! I'd settle for an invisible shirt!

  • archaeopteryx

    What I found hilarious was in the latest Batman movie, Catwoman leaping around on rooftops in 5-inch heels - try THAT sometime!

  • archaeopteryx

    Ya think maybe we're getting a little off-topic?

  • Gallup's Mirror

    At least Wonder Woman retained her greatest power of all: the ability to fight crime in high heels.

    Coming back to Star Trek: Seven of Nine has this power too! 

  • Gallup's Mirror

    Ya think maybe we're getting a little off-topic?

    Oh, right.

    There, that should do it.

    I don't give out compliments like this often, but you're almost as crazy as I am --

  • Gallup's Mirror

    Impossible. I'm totally sane now, thanks to my aluminum foil hat. 

  • archaeopteryx

    I rest my case.
