    Uhh, your ignorance is showing. "IDIC" may be fictional, but the idea behind it is not. "Joto mot toto poth" is an old Hindu saying in Bengal (in India). It means essentially.... yes, IDIC.

    In your zeal to sound cute, you pretty much reveal the idiot you are.

    NOTE TO THE MOD: Sorry, but I had to do it. There are times I get enraged when I read this board, and I guess this was one of them. I'll take whatever warning you mete out.

    RIP Leonard Nimoy
    Reads like something that could have been written by a poster here :rommie: Am I the only person that's getting tired of anytime Trek does a space-battle/action scene in space (or any scifi movie does for that matter) it gets compared to or called a ripping off of Star Wars?

    And I just thought of this: The chase through asteroids? Star Trek did it first: Mudd's Women. So Star Wars ripped off Star Trek :p

    The Bleeding Cool reviewer liked the movie - I loved this bit of his review:

    Thesp-In-A-Jar? :lol:

    For what it's worth, I did a quick count of Collin's 3/5 movie reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Only 15 of about 175 3 star reviews were rotten. So about 93 percent of his 3/5 reviews were noted as "fresh."

    Meh. Who cares? Any review that ends wondering where the "no man has gone before," spirit of Trek has gone doesn't get it, anyway. That damn monolog has become a curse.

    The Walking Dead has continued that tradition however both the protagnist and the antagonist are played by British actors - and very well.

    Andrew Lincoln plays Rick and of course David Morrisey plays The Governor. Both are brillaint in their roles.

    Morrisey however was never, 'in the jar, ' per se.

    Won't be reading the Telegraphs review or else I will get too wound up :) I can tell from the snippets I have unfortunately read here that he doesn't 'get' Star Trek.

    That has nothing -- absolutely NOTHING -- to with my post, darthtom, and you know it.

    Quit being a troll and contribute.

    I wonder how long it'll take for people to latch on to that one review as the One True Review(TM) and say that everything else is a blatant lie or conspiracy by the government. Or something.

    It's not about what is or isn't fictional. The problem is that I often see Trek fans treat it as if it's this law or ideal that Trek created and that it's some epitome of wisdom that should be followed just because it's espoused by the show, when in actuality the show has very little to say about it. It was just something tacked on as a merchandising tactic, not some grand idea that embodies what Star Trek is.

    Instead, fans twist it to suit their own specific cases to make it say things like, "Everybody should appreciate that there are going to be different incarnations of Star Trek." If that's what fans are twisting IDIC to mean, that's bullshit. People are free to love Star Trek, hate it, or a mixture of both, and just because some half-baked toy marketing scheme says one thing, fans aren't beholden to that philosophy like it's some sort of dogma.

    Go and look at the post I quoted and the usage of IDIC. "Practice IDIC." Practice? Really? I think you might want to reconsider before you start throwing terms around like idiotic or ignorant.

    Come on man, get a sense of humor. If you take IDIC that seriously, a fictional religion from a fictional TV show, it's time to get some perspective IMO.

    I don't take IDIC seriously, I take stupidity and ignorance seriously.

    Fine. I'll let it go. But stop calling me "man" when you know I'm not one.
