"Again with the Klingons"
 
Were any of you disappointed that Kirk did not reference to the Simpsons episode when they were watching "Star Trek XII"? What I mean is when Kirk found out they were going to be dealing with the Klingons and he mentioned "Again with the Klingons"... I actually was really curious to see if they would through that in there :) After all in Trek '09 we had Beastie Boys and Nokia references, why not The Simpsons?

I find it amusing we've seen Kirk actually FIGHT Klingons very rarely. I'm up for 3 being the Klingon-Federation War.

This time with no pesky Organians.

And Bill Shatner deserves credit for his Gorn commercial.

I was actually hoping for a Family Guy reference.

Thanks for the link The Keeper. I find it odd when people ask questions about an obscure pop culture reference without including a little refresher. That episode of The Simpsons was released over twenty years ago!

I seldom watch the Simpsons, haven't seen an episode in ages. I still knew what he was talking about though. Didn't remember that it was actually 12 that it was referring to though. That's great.

Yeah sorry about that. I didn't think of it, I figured whoever would respond would know what I'm talking about. Yeah, I know it's that old but who would of thought there would be a Star Trek XII... :)

Holy bejezus... really? Man. This whole ageing thing is a sobering experience. That seems like just the other day...

I loved that little Simpsons clip!

"Capten! Ish nae good! I canna reach tha control panel!"

Half the audience hadn't been born yet the last time the Klingons were the villains. They probably would have been dazed and confused by that line.

I was kind of hoping that Scotty would, for some reason, have trouble reaching a control panel.

20 years! *head explodes*

Funny thing is, the line "again with the Klingons" in the sarcastic tone presented is a sentiment I actually agree with to a smallish extent.

I understand the importance of using Klingons in an OS remake but I was really hoping they'd continue advancing a Romulans/Vulcans story here since they were such a hugh aspect of this timeline creation in the first place.[/whine]

This thread should be called 'Who just found out they're old'. I remember the Simpsons episode, though it didn't feel like 20 years, way back when arcades and Blocbusters existed and 56k was all you needed. I guess the Simpsons reference would be lost to the younger demographic.
