What is more embarrassing?

Hi Everyone, first time poster, not trying to come off as a jerk but as a trek fan what was more embarassing for you?

Stuffing Shatner back into his uniform after 19 years and have him try to be funny or stuffing Frakes and Sirtis and back into theirs after 11 years and tried to pretend time never passed and that they were still in 1994?

These are facepalm moments that make people laugh at Trekkies

Oh, definitely the ENT finale. Seeing Frakes and Sirtis filling out (and how!) those uniforms and trying to convince us they were back in good old season seven was just plain wrong, especially given it was an actual canon episode and was supposed to depict actual unseen events that took place during "The Pegasus" (yeah right!).

By complete contrast, Shatner's thing was just a harmless bit of fun.

I'd say having Shatner in that outfit was the more embarrassing thing - as it was seen by way more people than the last episode of Enterprise.

Thank God Nimoy doesn't (usually) go in for this kind of forced humor.

Why can't people tell that, in this instance, the audience is laughing at Captain Kirk?

I've never been embarrassed to be a Trekkie.

Also T'Girl is right. Shatner looked great!

Both are pretty embarrassing.

Re: What is more embarrassing?

Eh, it's going to take more than a silly comedy bit to embarass me.

If we can survive "Spock's Brain," we can survive this.

Should HAVE! I'm sorry, I'm usually not a grammar nazi and god knows I make enough mistakes myself but this "would of, should of, could of" crap is like cancer growing through the internet, it has to be stopped, it's just wrong, it doesn't even make sense.

Because they weren't.

Neither. I laughed my ass off at Shatner as Kirk at the Oscars. That was the point.

Although I'm still taking tablets that help me forget Enterprise's finale. It's got nothing to do with the sight of Riker & Troi gatecrashing our farewell party though... You can't blame them.

Time for another doze and this thread too will hopefully be a distant memory.

Re: What is more embarrassing?

If a few bad episodes were enough to embarrass Trekkies, those examples are a few decades too late.

I thought the Trekkies who got laughed at were the ones who couldn't tell the difference between fantasy and reality. You know, the ones that only exist on television?

Shatner was hysterical on the Oscars and he's a genius. A genius! I can't keep rehashing TATV so this will be my last. Will and Deanna should've been on the Titan rather than a the E-D. They tried something they thought we'd like and they made a mistake. They probably wouldn't have even done TATV if more "fans" had watched the show and kept it on the air. But as we say on Earth, c'est la vie
