Well, now I'll just apologize to the Professor. In fact, I thought the effect of the phaser barrage was quite spectacular. I simply thought the date, the one-day offering, and the obviously looped music to extend the scene were an effort at deliberately over-doing a good thing.
I'm sorry for laughing like a mad donkey at your honest offering. I've enjoyed your ongoing efforts on this project since it began and have been impressed by your dedication to making the episode the best it could possibly be, and never for a moment meant to insult your achievements or hurt your feelings.
Best of luck on this, Professor -- I'll keep my trap shut on this from now on and observe with silent admiration from the sidelines.
