My head hurts.
"Amok Time" is a true classic Trek
An excellent episode agreed!
It had my favorite Spock line (to the Vulcan who cuckolded him): "Ston, she is yours. But after a time you may find that 'having' is not nearly so desirable a sensation as 'wanting.' It is illogical, I know, but so often true." Have truer words every been spoken in Trek?
The actual line is slightly different, but I agree. It's one of Star Trek's best pieces of dialogue.
The line could be characterized as sour grapes, but sometimes in life the grapes really are sour. T'Pring was a bitch.
Nah. Spock figured that she was an ice queen from her Kirk gambit. When she taunts him for being a legend as if that's something to be embarrassed about, he takes the air out of their balloon with his speech, which will always linger in the back of their minds. It's awesome.
She was a hot bitch
Always a bonus
Was anyone on the latest cruise where the actors re-enacted the episode? Jason Issacs does a good McCoy.
They reenacted the entire ep?
Yep. Kirk was played by Gates McFadden, Wil Wheaton as Spock, Jason Issacs as McCoy, Denise Crosby as Tpau,
[SIZE=6]Rekha Sharma as Tpring/Chapel and John de Lancie as the rest and the turbo lift. It was really funny. [/SIZE]
Wow. That sounds amazing!
Frakes was the narrator.
She was such a cold-blooded bitch, even Spock knew he was better off without her. I'm a guy and I couldn't even stand an hour with that stuck-up little princess (let alone get sexually turned on by her); I would literally throw that Vulcan woman out of my house.
Being physically beautiful-looking doesn't preclude the possibility of that woman being cold and treacherous enough that her own personality qualities "uglified" herself. Not all us guys are shallow sex-monsters; I find a cold, black heart in a woman to be just as much of a sexual turn-off as an icepack down the front of my pants.
Let me get this straight
Are you calling me a "shallow sex monster" ?
Lolol, nah, I just like to think that some of us guys have enough perception to know the difference between a truly lovely female (like Seven of Nine) and a loathsome female monster (like Dr. Janice Lester). Regardless of exact looks. Hell, now that I think about it, I'd be happy to fuck an attractive Klingon woman who had a lot of personal honor, despite whatever physical injuries humans got from Klingon sex.
What Greg said - how completely fantastic! Did De Lancie do the fight music? And is there video of this somewhere?
I don’t remember but he did do the bells when they were in Vulcan.
He also does a good Sulu.
I seem to have a penchant for attracting and being attracted to bat shit mental hot blooded evil women, unfortunately its a turn on.
Although I'm partial to any Geri Ryan lookalike who might be available, in my dreams of course.
