OH COME ON!!!

That was not a personal attack!!!

I just pictured you as a grumpy old man sitting on the porch yelling at kids and driving a really old car....quit taking it personally!

What parts of the series did I like?

Liked some of the original series, but I was pretty young watching them the first time and a lot of it went over my head.

NG was pretty good for the most part, I think Data was my favorite, and Picard was a decent Captain.

Did not like Voyager with the exception of 7 of 9.

DS9 was good. Enjoyed the story writing alot.

Enterprise had so much potential, but they spent too much time trying to get the vulcan chick naked and not enough on any kind of plot.

Now on to movies.

Wrath of Kahn rocked and Search for Spock was pretty good, rest of original movies were bleh to bad.

NG movies....Can't say any of them stood out as great.

Latest Star Trek was great for me. I thought they did a great job of developing the characters down a different line even thought the plot was pretty good.

Jeff, please don't take anything I say personally, I know it is hard to convey tone while typing a damn note, so I will try to refrain from ribbing you too hard unless I am right there in front of you. Nothing but love buddy.

Curt

...and Jeff lobs a guilt grenade at Curt. BAMM! A direct hit! Oh, the humanity! It's all over him! (Hide the kids eyes.) :lol:

Curt wrote:Picard was a decent Captain.

Probably my favorite part of any of the series was when the ship is under attack and it looks like all is lost and Picard says, "not on my watch", hops over the console, takes the helm and takes out the enemy.

Curt wrote:Enterprise had so much potential

Yep, and the screwed the whole thing with that stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid time travel plot.

Curt wrote:but they spent too much time trying to get the vulcan chick naked and not enough on any kind of plot.

Quite the contrary, they didn't get Jolene Blalock nearly naked enough (although the skin-tight uniform was nothing to complain about). I'd have been much happier if they'd spent more time getting her naked and less time int that stupid, stupid, stupid, time travel plot.

This is the most entertaining thread we've had in a while.

Jeff, to answer your question which Bud already answered more eloquently than I could (and cracked me up in the process! well done, Bud), it comes to mind during every sci-fi: HOW are they able to create the earthlike gravity on all these space-faring vessels when we know where they are has no (or extremely little at best) gravitational element (gravitons)? I gotta know, otherwise I'm drifting off into the old "set aside the disbelief..." mindset like poor Curt over there in the rice paddies.

We miss ya, Curt! :cry:

For the moment.

It's all a cyclon plot.
Seriously, good actor, but I have a feeling Bud might hate the
seasons main storyline, just a Lotta bit.

I was right, Bud hates it.

Besides the plot issues,
How do you think the actors are doing?

Do you like the addition, for however short a time,
of James Callis?

I think he is doing a good job.

Looking at this, I realize how little I remember of this movie. I'll have to rent it some time.

Sometimes it's fun being retarded. :banana:
