Re: First Contact alternate timeline
I forever maintain TATV is a lazy, poor and mean spirited episode.
Perhaps it was toned down. Maybe they wanted to kill off Porthos, but were voted down by the PETA-fearing brass (or Windy, Breezy and Prada had a better agent than Connor Trinneer's).
What is TATV?
“We have to learn again that science without contact with experiments is an enterprise which is likely to go completely astray into imaginary conjecture.”
