    Hey Kalontas and Lumi.

    So, what do you think of the 2009 film and the original TV series? Not looking for fight or anything, we leave that up to other threads) but interested to hear your take. And if you haven't watched the movie yet, don't until you've watched all TOS episodes.

    Hope you find the place useful and entertaining. That is it diverting, and consumes a lot of time, goes without saying. :)

    I've seen the film! I had seen a few TOS episodes but not many, at that point, and the film didn't really impress me much. I felt like they cast the wrong man to play young Kirk, even back then when I didn't know much about TOS. I've watched it again recently and I'm sticking to that. I felt everyone else was pretty good, you just can't beat the originals. The storyline was interesting though.

    My knowledge about the 2009 film is as expansive as my knowledge about tOS two months ago - that is, I know it's there and vaguely know what it's about (blame Cracked.com for that).

    Heh. It's not consuming a lot of my time yet. Perhaps partly because I have almost nothing to say on most subjects - as my knowledge about the series is still very limited.

    So yeah. Looking forward to it. How did it go? Live long and prosper?

    Wouldn't one be chill BECAUSE of taking such meds? Because, you know, they fight depression.

    It would help if YT had that clip from Star Trek Generations. Or maybe I should stop greeting people. :(
