Re: Should Simon Pegg cut off middle finger out of respect for canon?

You guys are all wrong.

Star Trek XI is the story about how Scotty lost his finger.

Star Trek XII will, of course, be called "The Search for Scotty's Finger."

Great topic, Jayson. (As always.)

He should chop off his middle finger; Then he can give it to all the nitpicking fans.

I so pity Simon Pegg. You just know some freak is out there now contemplating how to take his finger as a prize. Probably someone on this very board.

Actually, as Scotty's hand was frequently played by actors other than Doohan (especially when in closeup); if Pegg chops off his finger he will be violating canon. And if he doesn't chop off his finger, as Scotty as also been clearly seen with nine fingers, he will be violating canon.
Scotty would be phasing in and out of the space-time canon!

FORGET THE FINGER! DEMAND TORSO LOSS! THE CANON MUST BE PRESERVED! PEGG SHOULD HAVE BOTH LEGS CHOPPED OFF ANAKIN SKYWALKER STYLE. ANYTHING LESS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED BY THE FANBOIS.

Fortunately for Pegg, TAS isn't canon.

I got to hand it to yas, this is the best thread I've read in a long time. And after the tiring day I just had, I needed these laughs.

Re: Should Simon Pegg cut off middle finger out of respect for canon?

This thread is offensive and in the worst possible taste. What will we make fun of next? Grace Lee Whitney's sexual assault and alcoholism?

James Doohan lost his finger fighting the Nazis. I would hope a little more respect could be shown for his sacrifice.

Grow up.

Mods, please lock this thread.
