Re: In Star Trek 2009, why didnt Sulu use his phaser on the drill?

I can't understand the love for these fancy new pulse weapons when a sword can do such a great job sometimes. There's always the place for a good, old-fashioned hand-to-hand combat. It's beautiful, snappier, less messy and the masters will kick your ass even if you have a bazooka.

Elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

Love the way Sulu with sword in hand, removes his helmet, fits his hair, and then fights the Romulan.
"Fits" his hair?

I'm thinkin' "FIXES" was somewhere in that train of thought,
which got lost while traveling between the brain synapses and the finger tips...

Regardless of the fact he actually took off a black hoodie.
