    He won 538 electoral votes in all presidential elections. Even in those where there weren't 50 states in the Union yet.

    They also won't need security at his inauguration.

    It's just him and Robau against the crowd

    I know this thread is just for good natured chuckles (mostly) and I'm pretty sure I jumped in when it was waaaaaay younger in it's lifetime....but...

    I just started a PIC binge-rewatch, and I have to wonder....could they have cast an actor who looks and acts any more differently than Brian Brophy than this guy?? I mean, TNG Maddox was like a thin, ultra-clean cut, ultra stiff sort of guy. PIC Maddox is scraggly, unkempt, and has none of the defining personality traits of his previous iteration. Even his hair is completely different, where Brophy's was a straight "mens regular" haircut and PIC Maddox is curly and undefined.

    It's almost worse than Zephram Cochrane's transformation!

    Ok...anyway....that is all for now.

    TNG Maddox was a Starfleet cyberneticist. PIC made him more of a scraggly civilian scientist who got in way over his head with gangsters, etc.

    I just look at it as 34 years' worth of change in a character. For all we know the Dominion War was really rough on Maddox and his studies and drove him to drinking. Or he went through bad relationships before Agnes.

    Hell, I went to high school with people that started drinking after graduation and aged pretty badly. :shrug:

    The election was rigged...but if Brian Brophy wants Biden to be president, who are we to argue?

    Bernie mailed that manila envelope to Brian Brophy after the inauguration.

    Are you familiar with the concept of aging? :biggrin:

    It's a James Bond recasting. He may not look right but then...did Roger Moore look like Sean Connery or George Lazenby?

    It was a reimagining of the character, not a development of him. Bond you enjoy because, well, it’s not personal. It’s not about who James Bond the man actually is. It’s about who 007 the superman is. So long as he’s a super spy and very sexy, who he is, what he looks like, and how he’s played is...Doctor Who. The changes are part of the ride.

    Plus it's 34 years in-universe since we last saw Maddox. Who looks the same 34 years later or even acts the same?

    More like Saavik or Zyal than anything else.

    Plus it's 2399. By then a lot of people aren't going to look 34 years older thirty-four years later.
