Re: My Greivences of Nutrek. What makes me a hater...

The goggles were to make it clear to audiences that they were in an engine room, and not some weird room with a giant margarita blender. Kind of like why they have glass cells instead of force fields, because audiences might go "why can't he just run out?"

The goggles were lame.
Unless they were a plan to make Chekov less of a genius more like his TOS counterpart.

I think it was more that, as an actor, he disliked working opposite a cat.

Oh yeah, because sensible eye-protection is lame.

Seriously, are people that desperate to find things to dislike?

I wish it had been considered normal, required even, for every Enterprise crew member to have a cat and the whole freaking ship was FULL OF CATS.

I'd like to see some cats lounging about on the bridge, strolling down the corridors..

Jesus Fucking Christ. I ASKED A QUESTION. I asked somebody to explain an aspect of the movie I didn't understand. Someone was kind enough to do that.

The rest of you can quit trolling, okay?

Maurice's post was pretty clearly a response to CommishSleer's*, which had been quoted in the post immediately preceding his; he wasn't even talking to you, so relax. And leave off accusing people of trolling you, while you're at it - that's become very boring with frequent repetition, and may itself be considered trolling.




* I think she mostly liked the movie anyway, but I could be mistaken about that.

I'm the one who first brought up the question about the goggles. Given how I've been frequently attacked here just for expressing negative opinions about the movie, it was a natural assumption that the remark was directed at/about me.

23rd Century Alternate Universe should have had energy force field eye protection by then.

FAIL!
they were probably too busy hooking up helium balloons to freshly-assembled starships to haul them partway up out of planetary gravity wells.

Seriously they were ugly goggles.

In comparison to the hundreds of fantastic futuristic Earth costumes and sets we had in the rest of STID. Something we never saw in any of the series or movies.
And you should see the list of nitpicking criticisms I have with TWOK and its my favourite movie of all time.

Come on, admit it they should have taken this stylish eyewear from TOS:
