    Annie was a smooth talker, was he not? I'm of the mind to use some of his lines on my next conquest. How to choose, when every word out of his mouth is pure gold? "I hate sand. It's course and it gets everwhere. Not like you. You're everything soft ... and smooth." Dude ... DUDE!!! ... how many hotties have been hit on with that little number, I wonder? And have it used to such effect?!

    I would love to be told I am better than sand! Why I would just swoon and fall into the sand-hater's arms!

    Me. A person like me. Better than sand :adore:

    That really is something, though: Annie's nuts had yet to drop and already, The Force is guiding him to hit on Padme - the 14 year old elected queen of all she surveyed! Lucky for her, both of them were still, like ... underaged ... otherwise it would've caused a commotion - a scandal - and Senator Palpatine would've had no choice but to put her political ambitions on ice! Wow ... George Lucas went down some dark roads, in the STAR WARS prequels. Did he not?

    Ouch!!! ... Very ouch. Miles ain't no Orlando Bloom, that's true, but ... he's solid, dependable and trustworthy. If that doesn't cry out "Marriage Material," I don't know what else does! And besides, it was always comforting seeing him at the transporter controls, on TNG. I would've never begrudged him a bride of his choosing ...

    Eeeewww. Please don't remind me of that scene. Or come to think of it that awful movie.

    And Miles never cheated unlike (perhaps) Orlando Bloom. I don't think Miles is a bad guy but if its based purely on looks you've got to give it to Keiko over Miles.
    Miles promised Keiko the stars and all she got was a dangerous, mouldy Space Station and years of separation (though that might have been a good thing for the marriage).

    You all are forgetting the fact that Keiko was nuts well before their marriage. Watch "Data's Day" if you need a memory refresh. Unrestrained, irrational, unprovoked Keiko-rage on display through the bulk of the episode, followed by mournful, funerary-atmosphere Keiko-coordinated wedding at the end.

    Not at all. Keiko, as written in that episode, would just be considered a minor Bridezilla today.

    I love the idea of Reed/Trip, but Archer/Trip is, as you say, a much more obvious pairing. Reed, I fear, is far too repressed to give any serious consideration in slash pairings. I imagine Archer and Trip, on the other hand, chilling in the captain's quarters, maybe watching some water polo, and one thing leads to another... :luvlove:

    Reed and Hayes. It's everything perfect and fine in the world.

    I thought that was kind of sweet..

    Orlando Bloom? Since when was he a measuring stick for husbands?

    I think you mean Ben-Hur, not Spartacus.

    (Sorry. I'm a compulsive editor.)

    Also, elsewhere in this thread, the "fair maiden" bit with Sulu and Uhura is from "The Naked Time," not "Mirror, Mirror."

    My work here is done. You may now return to your regularly schedule thread . . . .

    You're right it is Ben Hur. I've even seen Ben Hur, but maybe not the old Spartacus movie.
