    NONE.

    He gets to be a piece in Federation Monopoly, that should be enough for him.

    Post Federation moneyless Monopoly would be boring.

    No way to crush your opposition.

    But you'd play to better yourself!

    Monopoly with no money to better yourself is Simcity.

    I seriously don't get that game.

    Pride in devising a city within the narrow limitations designated by the inventor of the game.

    My niece spent about 5 hours in my room playing Spore (Simcity in Space.) while I was exiled to the living room and the old crappy computer.

    Yes the sheer joy of vanquishing is sadly missing from many games. I remember Spore, not that I ever played it, or the Sims. I did play Monopoly as a kid, I was one of those obnoxious children who had memorized the rules and would not allow all that sissy free money in the middle shenanigans.

    Sometimes I really miss Azeroth :(

    And did they make tiny changes in his appearance, to make him look ever so slightly more Vulcan?

    :)

    Maybe they'd touch up his eyebrows but it would take some gall to make his ears pointy.

    Would they give him a bowl cut?

    They'd definitely depict him in robes with big "manly" shoulder pads.

    Any true depiction of Jonothan Archer in Statue form on any planet should have the man knocked on his ass trying to get up through a heady concussion.

    Hows this sound for a statue of Archer

    Him, and on the other side Phlox, standing tall and proud, Statues of them built, by the Menk, a millenia latter, after the race the menk evolve into (NOT The pakleds, sorry) Saves the milky way from somet threat from another galaxy... THey build statues of Archer and Phlox, speaking of their wisdom, their restraint, their ability not to be blinded by instant compassion, and to see things from a larger perspective


    Beyond that... SFdebris just wrote a review on Shadow's of P'jem... and I'm like... I know its his show but.... URGGH, I like a lot of his things on DS9 but he never once even ACKNOWLEDGES, that THe vulcans used a RELIGIOUS STRUCTURE, as cover for their listening post.


    Saying this isnt just spying, but an attempt to prey on peoples sympathys, is quite legitimate.

    And Phlox and Archer should both have their middle fingers pointed skyward as a heroic fuck you to the Valakians. Children could drape those fingers in flower garlands on Menk holidays.

    Would prefer a holographic exhibit... With scenes of them weeping for the decision they must make, but ultimately finding peace with themselves, knowing what must be done.

    I don't think the monastery existed for the sole, or even primary, purpose of deception. Rather it was a actual Vulcan monastery which had existed for thousands of years, but there also was a relatively resent listen post located in it's basement.

    Lots of governments have used ostensibly civilian structures, operations, and vehicles for intelligence operations. The Vulcans doing that is par for the course when it comes to these kinds of things.

    The Pentagon used to be a mental hospital. Briefly there was an overlap of a few years where the building housed both Americas cooks and Americas grizzled sociopaths planning the destruction of communism.

    Why were America's cooks planning the destruction of communism?

    Have you eaten food under a communist regime?

    I haven't, but I have seen the movies.

    They didn't put the gazelle speech on the statue's dedication plaque, we know that much.
