Koenig Speaks
 
<font color=yellow>Walter Koenig</font> is positive about the new <i>Star Trek</i> movie and his replacement, but not quite so generous towards faux Internet "authorities". <p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://scifipulse.net">SciFi-Pulse</A>, Koenig is positive about <i>Star Trek XI</i>. "I think the movie's a great idea and I hope they really do a terrific job," he said. "I have no reason to believe they won't. I know J.J. Abrams is a very sharp guy and he's obviously extremely successful, and the cast I got to visit on the set all seemed to be very confident, very good performers and very interesting personalities. So I'm sure that they will have a good film."<p>Koenig also enjoyed meeting with the actor now playing Chekov, <font color=yellow>Anton Yelchin</font>. "I talked to Anton," said Koenig. "He came by and actually spent a couple of hours talking. He's a very ingenious pleasant young man. He already has a career. I mean he is quite well established and seems to be building quite a career for himself as an actor."<p>Although Koenig has never personally experienced a negative experience with a fan, he had harsh words about Internet bloggers who claim to be authorities on subjects when they are lacking in the knowledge department. "I want to sit them down and tell them to go take a class before they start critiquing," he said.<p>To read the article, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://scifipulse.net/?p=311">here</A>.<center></center>

Cool! So Trek XI has Walter Koenig's blessing, too. I think he's a wonderful guy.

Sure.

Hey, those nacelles look like PEZ dispensers. That was intentional, right?

Film? Language? Either way, I tend to agree; many people on the Internet - fans, especially - have a lot to learn about the subjects they claim authority in, and even more to learn about presenting a good argument. Most of all, they need to learn the difference between opinions and facts, as well as semantics - I've seen way too many arguments flare up simply because the people involved don't bother to comprehend what they read or what they say.

Yep, they are PEZ dispensers ... with William Shatner's head on them. Go here to find out more about the history of the Sombreroprise.

What the fuck is wrong with you? If you don't like The Animated Series, maybe you should just get the hell out of here! :rolleyes:
