Xortex, I'd love to hear that further explained. If it's well thought-out, maybe I'll tell it to my family this passover.

But there's no way in hell you'll see a "traditionalist" in charge of the franchise ever again.
And you just love to revel in that, don't you?
I certainly do.

With the exceptions of Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner, I don't think that is true in the least.
I don't mean just physically, but also in character. There's only so long Riker can sit at Picard's side. The turning down captaincy was getting really tired. And I didn't feel like Frakes and Sirtis were really giving it their all in S7. It was time to wrap it up. Some people even contend that S6 should've been it (but while S7 wasn't one of the better seasons, I'm glad we had it).

Re: After Abrams

True, the career stand-still was bad enough with the TOS characters, though at least they continued to move up in rank, even if they kept the same jobs for twenty years. It's particularly bad in TUC both Spock and Scotty are captains yet they still keep their positions of science ofricer and chief engineer of the Enterprise.

But with TNG it just got silly. They all stay together for 15 years at basically the same rank and positions. The only one who moved on with their career was Worf, but even he gave it all up to become the Enterpirse's tactical officer again in Nemesis. Factor in the Federation fought a war where it suffered heavy losses, and the very idea that people weren't pulled off the Enterprise and promoted to fill in vacancies elsewhere in Starfleet really makes no sense.

DS9 at least ended with everyone moving on in their lives and only a handful of characters stayed on the station.

Voyager at least had a reason for why no one would transfer off the ship, being lost on the ass-end of the galaxy, but still one would think Harry Kim could have been promoted at some point Tuvok got promoted, Tom Paris got demoted and re-promoted, no reason Harry should have been an enisgn all this time.

And Enterprise, TATV claims that no one advanced in rank ten years, meaning Mayweather and Hoshi break Harry's record for longest ensign.

It's a little known fact that Mother Theresa was actually Hitler in Drag. A lot more happened in that bunker than they thought. He had a sex change operation and slipped out unnoticed when the allies got there as an unwitting nurse.

Later in the century they tried to clone that piece of skull they thought was Hitlers and it somehow turned out to be Shirley Temple. How that happened, nobody knows. She later worked for the phone company for twenty years and then did a striptease act in Vegas for a long time, long after it was out of style and fashionable and while not even in her prime anymore.

Well, you asked.





As for Abrams, He's a smart greedy Jew.

Star Trek is over. There is no after Abrams unless you have a magatronic bomb. The man is Jewish after all. He's not stupid as well as a not very talented thinker.

One infraction for trolling. This is a textbook example of how to do it. Comments to PM.

Re: After Abrams

Please don't call for bans or warnings on the board. You can use the "notify the Moderator" button (that little attention sign to the left) if you think a post is crossing the line (and please feel free to do that in the future). Bringing such things up in public tends to lead to more trouble and is something that's easily abused.

Please get back on topic, everyone.
