Lucsly crossed something off on his padd. "So yu're not mcontending that this was a pre-destination Paradox?"

Dulmer added, for any idiot present, "A time loop-- that you were meant to go back into the past?"
I hate having thoughts on the top of my head. They usually jump off and commit suicide.

The only reason I personally suspected that Stiles from TOS could ever be Styles from ST III is simply that they ACT alike. Sure, we never knew Styles that well, but from what little we did see, it's obvious he was a pompous jackass - and so was Stiles, though more overtly racist of course.

That being said, it reminds me of my favorite line from Die Hard, played completely and utterly serious:

"Hi, I'm Agent Johnson, and this is Special Agent Johnson. [beat] No relation."

I don't think Lt. Stiles and Capt. Styles behaved anything alike. Sure, they were both antagonists, but they came at it from entirely different directions. The lieutenant's hostility came from a sense of victimhood -- the memory of all his ancestors who died at Romulan hands and the desire for retaliation against the race he'd been raised to hate and fear. Captain Styles, by contrast, acted the way he did out of a sense of entitlement and privilege, the smug condescension and complacency of a Peter Principle beneficiary who's used to having things go his way. They could hardly be more different. Lt. Styles is like a pre-"Duet" Major Kira, while Capt. Styles is more like early Dr. Bashir.

In any case, this encourages me to seek stuff out but I will say that it's kind of funny how things change. The "vulcan children play with more complex stuff" line offended me originally but, in the JJ Abrams movie, young spock is doing Quantum Physics level stuff.

Which I accepted immediately.
