FYI, that was Jude Law in Sky Captain, but don't feel bad, I've gotten him and Ewan McGregor alot to.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

The part of Renton from Trainspotting that "inspired" Pennington is not the heroin abuse but rather the cynicism and immersion in a seedy underworld culture. Though that's not where Pennington starts out in Harbinger, it's part of what his future holds. After his disgrace in Harbinger, I've sort of imagined him becoming kind of a fringe "gonzo" journalist, a la Hunter S. Thompson. (Minus the shotgun in the mouth.)

Well, that stands to reason. In the 23rd century, it would probably be a phaser rifle or something to that effect.

...what?

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Haven't seen any of them yet (except a handful of clips here and there). I plan to watch them eventually, but I'll probably wait until I've gone through the whole Star Trek universe first, which'll probably take like five years.

Yeah, I know that now, but it took me a while (and I actually saw the movie).

He's a journalist? I thought he was a Starfleet officer. Wait, don't tell me, I haven't read it yet (but I will). Don't worry, I'll get to it soon enough. All in good time.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

It'll be very interesting, to say the least, what Pennington eventually ends up doing that gets him the honor of having an entire school of journalism named after him... (the 'Pennington School' often mentioned on DS9)

how about this: I have not seen Star Wars, full stop. It's on the to do list, after about a couple of dozen things such as catch up with all the Trek books.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Don't worry, Rosalind, I think I have committed a worse crime:

Not seeing Titanic.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ If it weren't for a friend who wanted to see it for a second time, I wouldn't've seen Titanic either. OTOH, this is a Trek board, and to tell people that you're a major Trek fan but have not seen SW?

Hey, it's only because I'm so devoted to Star Trek that I haven't yet made time to watch Star Wars!

This will kill some people: I haven't seen Fight Club yet.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

I felt the same way-- until I actually saw Fight Club. The advertisements made it seem like a generic testosterone injected beat-em-up movie, but in the end it wasn't that at all. It was a serious mind-f**k ala "The Game".
