Re: Your Love For Amok Time !!!

I haven't seen Amok Time in about two years. I stumbled across this youtube and uh.. I actually teared up watching it.

The first fight scene of the series was in the first pilot, The Cage, when in illusion Pike fought the Kalar on Rigel VII.

Pike also strangles the Talsian, who I think has crept into the cell to take the phaser.

I wasn't thinking of that as a "fight scene", at least one of significant proportions involving a showcase of choreographed stage combat techniques. But I'll defer to cinematic experts if it's considered one; perhaps I should have said major fight scene.

Sure, that makes sense. I meant my comment more as a footnote, than anything.

Good gravy, all these posts and no one has yet mentioned Gerald Fried's absolutely essential contribution to "Amok Time." What great work from his pen and from the musicians as well.
Good point. Amok Time's musical score is excellent.
Two of the greatest cues are in this episode, Spock's eerie guitar theme and the often-parodied-on-MST3K fight music. Also love the Vulcan ceremonial cues with the prominent tritones telling us "this is something alien that you won't understand."

Could get your ass kicked, though. I've occasionally given a firendly "Good morning, girls" at work, only to be roundly rebuked with a cold "We're WOMEN, not girls!" That led me to start saying "Good morning, ladies." Unfortunately I run into someone who doesn't like being called "lady" once in a while. Maybe I'll just smile and nod from now on.
You could try "Mesdames" and see what they do.

The tradition of the father giving away his daughter at her wedding, has its roots in the fact that daughters in olden day were considered part of their father's property. This is also where you get asking the father for the girl's hand in marriage.

Well, there was also the ancient Jewish tradition that the father of a family was their spiritual guardian and "kinsman redeemer" (go el), so the father giving the bride away symbolized that she was passing from the spiritual and material protection of her father to that of her husband.

Re: Your Love For Amok Time !!!

As the Vulcan names (at least those revealed) at this time were limited, I thought it would have been cute to have numerous carvings on the trees and scrawls on the walls, featuring kidney-shaped "hearts" enclosing the initials "S." and "T'P." over and over.

Hey, they weren't as logical as we had thought!
