FINAL POLL - September Challenge - Take Me to Your Leader!

What better topic on this debate night than "Who presents the best face of leadership?" Or, heck, who just made the coolest pic interpreting Klaus's request to "Take Me to Your Leader?" It's the first thing any upstanding alien asks when landing on our fair planet, though right now, he may not actually accomplish much by doing so. Sorry, Klaatu, but you'll have to wait in line with the rest of them, killer robot or not (just don't stand next to Neo - we can barely tell you two apart now! )

Well, folks, there's no need to wait - you can cast your votes now, and we'll see who Gallups first to the finish line

Starscape! The prospect of Janeway as president is horrifying. No offense, klaus.

Re: FINAL POLL - September Challenge - Take Me to Your Leader!

^^ So Bela Okmyx for president is better?

Seriously - I really like both the idea and execution of the entry from Klaus.

"The Horizon Times" is a great concept, too. It could have been improved, though, if the captions adhered to the frame, there was a by-line etc.

Generally an enjoyable breadth of entries again - and that with "The Ghost of Spock" not even part of the candidates!

Re: FINAL POLL - September Challenge - Take Me to Your Leader!

Don't worry, I didn't take it personally... I'm not horrified by the prospect of a Janeway presidency, but it wasn't intended as my first choice. In the TNG era I'd probably take Picard but that's beside the point.

Starscape


P.S. ...Ptrope, for the record I'll argue with calling Gort a "killer robot"... he's a police officer!

Tough choices! Kinda like the real world . I had to go with largo, just because I got a kick out of the "committee to elect Harry Mudd" . That could've also worked with a shot of hundreds of Stellas .

Klaus - Well I'll just have to argue with your argument with Ptrope! "Do as we, the higher more advanced civilization, say you should do or my buddy Gort here will destroy you." Hardly worthy of the prime directive.

I shudder at the thought of a remake. The original was such a classic (funny that Robert Wise directed that movie and TMP), it just seems like one of those that should be left alone.

Off my stump. To all the entries, great job. You guys really make it difficult to choose a winner!!

Re: FINAL POLL - September Challenge - Take Me to Your Leader!

^^but the imposition of that robot police force was undertaken voluntarily by the races of the galaxy -- the rules may be harsh, and the choice given to later races like humanity really no choice at all, but that's not Gort's fault. You should be dissing Klaatu and the galactic community, not the tool...

I didn't say he was an unjust robot - only a killer, which he did quite clearly and easily. I always wonder how the movie might've played if they'd kept the original denouement of the story, in which Klaatu revealed that Gnut (the robot's name in the story) was actually his master.

Take me to your leader, indeed .

Re: FINAL POLL - September Challenge - Take Me to Your Leader!

I was just reacting to the connotation of "killer robot", not the denotation...

ALL of you guys who entered did a great job....imagine that...a vote where you would be happy with EVERY choice! :;

I also chose 137th Gebrig ...mainly of the irony of the slogan. But like I said, their are all good!

Gort is such a tool.



True, my issue is with Klaatu, not with Gort.

Back on topic. Great entries by everyone this month. You guys/gals make it difficult to choose a favorite every month.
