Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

Captain Robau likes the Kelvin just fine. Anyone that has a problem with it can take it up with him and he may take it under consideration assuming your still alive at that point.

The NX-01 has a lot of aerodynamic streamlining and pleasing curves. The Kelvin is blockier than a Scion xB. Most people interpret chunky and blocky as a visual short-hand for lower-tech and streamlined and sexy as visual short-hand for more high tech stuff.
So a Corvette looks more advanced than a Hummer?
Depends. The vehicle? Or an erect penis?
I think the Corvette is a penis (or a penis by proxy)

Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

And a Hummer is a 6-pack and a set of pecs.

Now we just need arms, legs, and a head and we can have a fairly politically incorrect version of that lame Vehicle Voltron.

Try peanut butter sandwich with m&ms. You won't regret.
My husband would dig that; he's a fan of Reese's. At the moment I am snacking on Jelly Bellies, the mixed assortment. Trying to hold off lunch, and they are doing the job.
I loved the Sugar-Free Jelly Bellies, but can no longer find them around here. They were great for satisfying my diabetic cravings.

Sector 7, I just saw that! I'm going to read that later; very interesting. Yes, Jelly Bellies will sure kill your appetite. A very few of them make a good dessert for that reason. I think it has to do with all the flavor they pack into them. Your taste buds are assaulted, and they're done . I had no idea they had sugar-free; if you say they are good, I will look for them.

Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

Since you guys are back on the M&M thing there are now coconut m&m out, not bad.

And what's wrong with blue food? I know a certain Andorian whou would argue that. He might even have to fight the mighty Robau over it.

Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

The only blue food I like is blue-veined cheeses -- and I like them way too much! But in general, like the cheese, blue connotes mold.

Kirk DID save 800 lives. Pike was including the crew of the Narada. Had Captain Robau been in command, the Narada would have easily been destroyed.

Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin

Robau WAS going to turn the Kelvin into one giant lowrider with awesome woofers in the back. But then...well...you know what transpired.

OY! I liked Vehicle Voltron. I was/am sick of Lion force.

Plus the only good lion voltron was GO LION!, uncut and uncensored.

That image is terrifying....and how the smeg does one make a lowriding space ship?

I think he's going to have to make a trip to the salvage yard and pick up a few spare parts.

Make sure the helm console has a steering column fashioned from silver chain links.
