    He'd make a pretty good Wampa.

    Ah. Now I understand why I woke up this morning with my pajamas around my ankles and my butt hurt.

    Yes, because this is exactly what rape is like. Well done.

    I'm really excited for Abrams' take on Star Wars. While I had some plot issues with the 09 Trek, it was a visual success beyond measure.

    I think we all agree that Abrams pumped some much needed life into the Trek franchise and that he is a talented guy. The last film was better than most entries in the Trek franchise. Moreover, I think he is the right sort of guy for Star Wars.

    In short, he is cool guy at the prom.

    What I think some are deluded about is his commitment to the ugly girl. The one he said that he wasn't a fan of. the one he didn't mind taking to the dance because there was no intimidation factor. and let's not delude ourselves about the amount of time he will have to helm two major franchises.

    That and there is a weird sort of Uncle Tom mentality in our fandom. Fans who dislike fans for being fans. Dennis, for example, paradoxically believes that fans are irrelevant (in which case they wouldn't matter either way), but are at least important in sense that they should be insulted by big wigs in a manner that reminds them how unimportant they really are (in which case they cannot be totally irrelevant, since you take no notice whatever of that which is truly irrelevant).

    Anyone who takes two girls to the prom has to have some mojo going on. Star Wars, however, is sacred. There is a huge pressure to NOT screw it up. At least, this is how Abrams feels. Star Trek just became a low priority.

    See you by punchbowl. Let's pour a glass and drink a toast to the King and Queen. And then let's hope for some other cool, or at least cool-ish, guy to asks us for a dance.

    No, we're not quite slim enough for the mini. We're more like Uhura in Star Trek V. Puffy in Pink.

    I’d like to see Jonathan Frakes as director.

    Ah, but the tickling feeling also meant that it hurt "so good," that you want a second round - this time with your eyes open. :devil:

    That explains the note:

    Jonathan Frakes? Why not?
    I like Next Generation.

    Into darkness is based in TOS.

    Yeah, I like TNG and TOS too but that's irrelevant.
    If Abrams is going away, we should move forward and get another good movie director, fresh to the franchise. Not move backwards.

    I can't speak for Dennis, but I just find adults acting like two year olds to be a bit silly. Internet tenter tantrums are just as ridiculous as those in the cereal isle at the supermarket.


    You know what Abrams thinks and feels? Woah! :eek:

    I´m kidding.

    I like Nimoy as director, but he is retired and old.
    Bryan Singer could be interesting.

    I'll only see Episode VII if it's this.
