Re: Terra Prime's Baby Elizabeth

David Marcus is a bad example, though. He was born (pardon the pun) out of an entirely different set of circumstances. For one thing, WRATH of KHAN was trying to pretend like The Motion Picture didn't happen and it was rebooting the franchise, altogether. Which, in effect, it kind of did. And Kirk's having a son fell right into that. But is the idea of Kirk knocking up all these women so far out of probability, anyway? Was anyone really that shocked, or suprised? At the time, I'm sure it was much more of a question of, "where are the rest of his half brothers and sisters, now that we've seen this first kid."

Re: Terra Prime's Baby Elizabeth

I suppose part of it is the nature of the show itself for examples shows like The A-Team, Knight Rider lend themselves to more episodic with minimal continuity. Other shows not so much so.

Re: Terra Prime's Baby Elizabeth

I never had problems when Admiral Nelson's S.S. Seaview was intact after nearly being destroyed by whatever deep sea monster of the week either.

In a more contemporary show, or a western, sure I might be surprised if a building blown up one week is still there the next. Or if Del Floria's Tailor Shop was just fine and dandy after being blown up by Thrush the week before.

Re: Terra Prime's Baby Elizabeth

We can't have Elizabeth because Spock was the first.

I'm sure there was a whole raft of hybrid babies that didn't make it, there are always people wanting to mess around with such possibilities. But by the time they got to Spock, something went right. And by the time they got to Voyager everyone could have babies with everyone else. And by the time they got to Treklit you had characters with 6 different species in them because, science.

Re: Terra Prime's Baby Elizabeth

Not sure you get to have it both ways Melakon

It's a bit much to ask of a series to be shallow enough to only be telling self contained 60 min stories while at the same time asking for answers to deeper questions like why.

Re: Terra Prime's Baby Elizabeth

No no I really wasn't messing with you. I was just riffing on stuff which happened to be your stuff.

If I was messing with you you'd be dead.

No wait, that's rather extreme.

You'd have burned your toast three mornings in a row.

Well, I was stressing out a lot yesterday, so whatever hoodoo mumbo jumbo you were doing was working, apparently.

I totally read that as dialogue from an 80's action film.
