Re: What Board style are you using?

Pink gets the short shrift in Trek. Did Jake Sisko ever wear pink? I don't think so despite his godawful wardrobe. We hardly saw any pink and did we EVER see a male wearing pink? I seriously doubt it. Someone, provide me with evidence. It seems that humanity has evolved past pink

If we want pink, it has to be Electric Pink. Nothing less.

Re: What Board style are you using?

I'm partial to Fuschia so I'll take your Electric happily.

Just so everyone knows, salmon does NOT count. I know there were some Star Trek villagers wearing salmon burlap at some point and I hope no one intends to offer that up as evidence of anything other than the 90's.

New Blue hurts my eyes. I voted for Big Blue, because that's what I'd been using, but this thread just inspired me to try Old Grey. I like it! Easy on the eyes.

Re: What Board style are you using?

Oh geez...there are two puns fighting it out demanding that I think them...should I mention about how I quickly got "board" with the Blue theme, or respond to teacake's mentioning of salmon with a suitably placed fish pun?

These are the thoughts that kept me out of the really good schools.

Big Blue is the only proper way to view this board.

This is exactly what I wanted to post, and is what I say every time this question comes up.

Re: What Board style are you using?

I want the board holographically projected from a handheld device and it to respond to voice commands in a variety of different languages.

The color, naturally, would be Warp Nacelle Blue.

No other selections.
