No mates im not bald.. And I cannot believe how out of control you blokes have gotten. I was trying to point out a semantic issue and you've all turned this into a racial one.
I apologize if I took it out of context.

But, I still don't think everyone of a particular alien race on Star Trek needs to look exactly the same.

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

I never said anything about all the aliens looking the same. Star Trek was already diverse enough!

Throwing something new in the mix was unnecessary and in reality was the production team just being el cheapo magnifico..:

** Thats why CGI was used instead of the models.

** Thats why they let Avery Brooks run wild nearing the end of DS9, (OT Rant i know but i cant resist)

** Thats why the bridge of voyager looks like a barbie and ken summer home (be honest... Enterprise bridge was ICONIC. Voyager looks like it was made in korea)

** Even the STORY WRITING was sub par. So the holographic doctor just up and becomes sentient? I know someone is going to try to throw Vic Fontaine in my face, but at least it would have been acceptable if that was EXPLAINED EARLY ON. With the way things were, we totally disrespected the concept of Data and the miracle of the positronic brain.

Do you not see a problem here? This is why cinema has gone down hill, this is why we dont get high quality goods in the states anymore because the likes of you want to quibble. Sure some of you might call this minutia but the DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS mates.

I want HIGH quality Star Trek back. The JJ Abrahms Movies are close and I have high hopes...
You do realize there's a black Romulan in JJ Abrams' movie with Tuvok's hairstyle?

Re: Tuvoks Hair... ridiculous

Case in point. Look how small minded this is. He cant just be "a romulan".. he has to be a black romulan??

Truly this has become the Obama nation... and it saddens me.

No they didn't. Nicholas Meyer was unimpressed with the recasting of Alley after ST II and didn't even consider Curtis for ST VI, pursuing first Alley to reprise and then his original choice for II, Cattrall.

Without having read the whole thread, let me just say that I always thought that Tuvok looked perfectly Vulcan. And I'm glad and thankful that he did not wear one of those stupid wigs!

Just for once I don't write TPTB.

The writer/director, Meyer, probably had more power than the producers on a day to day basis.

I'm perfectly under control. And you're the one who turned this racial, "ghetto" for one.

No this issue certainly isn't why cinema has gone down hill. It hasn't. Yes there are some stinker out there. There always have been. There are still brilliant movies and television being made.

You're the one quibbling over hair. The devil might be in the details, but you're idle hands seem to be his playthings.

Agreed. So why are we going on about hair?

Maybe it would have been better if he had hair.

You said it first.

Which "you" is that? The man from Indiana or the woman from California?

No, seriously, the person is posting from two different accounts and a username that's one character different. Compare the last few entries to the ones before.

Oh wow, I never noticed. I do believe having multiple accounts without good reason (i.e. lost a password or whatever) is a ban-worthy rule violation.

Yep... looks like someone's been having us on, what with the contradictory personal info and all. I've already hit the magic button.

I think he had to make a new account BECAUSE he was banned.
