Ah. Locutus agrees with me.

*pause*

Oh my God. Locutus agrees with me.
I like baseball too. It's like we're twins or something.

Yeah, I mentioned that's one of the reasons I thought Khan was the main villain way back before all the spoilers started pouring in.
I probably did read your theory and it stayed in the subconscious. Apologies.
Oh, no worries. I didn't mean it like that. I just wanted to brag about the name theory a little bit, especially since the rest of my theory about the plot was spectacularly wrong.

The original 3D House of Wax was made by a one-eyed director. Quite Interesting fact, that.

IF that's the case, and my comment about being a one eyed fan offended, then I apologise. It was offered in the context that some fans fail to see a bigger picture, a wider picture.

One presumes you'll be giving the 3D showing a miss then.
No offense, just a friendly jab. Hard to take offense at anything said here. And yes, I won't be going until a 2D showing on Thursday night.


I hope you enjoy it, I can't wait.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ugh. I have this habit. It's an annoying habit really. If I think something is a fact, I check it out anyway, just to be sure.

What is Khan? Is it a title or a name? I checked the transcript site for the episode "Space Seed". It's a name.

Spock:
Name, Khan Noonien Singh.
I think I should have seen what was coming by the direction the comics took. Of the first dozen comics released, a majority were re-imaginings of episodes produced for the first series. This new film is a re-imagining of "Space Seed" and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

For me, I learned today that Alan Dean Foster is doing the novelization of this film. For the price of a ticket, I can buy the book and get the details if I have a burning curiosity about this film. (I loved the novelizations he did for the first Star Trek and Star Wars films. I felt they really fleshed out the universe for both.)

I do have this question. In the prime universe, he was betrothed to T'Pring, which by Vulcan law made her his wife. Is that the situation in this new universe, and if so, does that make Spock an adulterer for having a relationship with Uhura?

Depends on a couple of things:

One, was Spock ever betrothed to T'Pring in the new timeline?

Two, was Spock an adulterer for having a relationship with Leila Kalomi from This Side of Paradise?

Three, is T'Pring still alive. I'm just saying, with only 10'000 Vulcans left she very well maybe dead.

Even though the odds might be against it, for drama purposes it would probably be a good thing if she were alive. Not that we're likely to see her in the third movie.
