That idea sucks.

I love it.

I de-sombreroed a few days ago. I have the attention span of a 3 month old baby.

Though I still enjoy the references and the art in "The Thread".

Actually, several ideas for some sort of a united front have been floated, but nothing concrete has formed. Expect anarchy and spontaneity to continue to reign.

Re: I think its time to change our avatars back.

I've never demanded anyone have a sombrero or not. For as long as I choose, I shall keep my purple-ness and sombrero-ness.
I'm a combat veteran who also survived Hollywood. I'll survive this, too.

Are you freakin' nuts?

We're Star Trek fans. Not ending things prior to a slow death is what we're all about.

I mean, think about it: Beating a dead horse is what we do best.

Okay, so maybe sombreros are beginning to suck.

So what?

Voyager sucked and it lasted for 7 whole years! Christ, even though the franchise was technically brain dead and on full life support, they gave us Enterprise and somehow managed to keep it going for 4 additional seasons.

By all rights sombreros deserve to stick around for a couple of years. At the very least, until Trek XI hits theatres. Anything less, and you don't deserve to call yourself a true fan.


Beautifully put. And besides, if I remove the sombrero form my av, it'll just be a cheetah wearing Christmas lights, and then how will it be flipping insane?

I feel the tide has turned, so I'm getting out now while we are still on somewhat of a high. There are rumblings of a backlash across the board and as such, I feel that we should all cut back on the sombrero-ness.
Blasphemy!

No, incidentally, just before I read this thread, I changed my avatar. The new one is promoting the Trek Art Comic Project and doesn't include a single sombrero reference. Maybe you're right. I mean, I still love the whole thing, but I think it ran its course. And that's okay.

But I still insist on at least one CGI sombrero in Star Trek XI.

If Abrams doesn't release a Sombrero version of the trailer...I'm boycotting.
