Ooooooo! Found it! It's clip #12 here: http://trekkieguy.ca/02.shtml
Pretty much. The fan could have asked "do you have a model of the Enterprise" and in return, the actor having likely have heard the same question a zillion times probably would say any number of amusing things in return or to answer the question or even to not say anything. Too much detail, too little detail, just enough detail, does it make a difference in the end? There's usually a facet somewhere.
There are exactly 10,000 discussions in this forum now!
About 30 good ones...
Does anybody remember the thread from the last two or three years ago a communicator logo for a Trek anniversary photo that had a line not drawn properly and we obsessed about it with good humor? I'm trying to find that thread if it's still around; I tried some key word searches but came up empty.
That's perfect for people like me who have the ADH-- wait, why are we talking about zoo exhibits as squirrels aren't flavors of ice cream?
I wanted to make a similarly excited announcement about the Discovery forum hitting 2,000 discussions, but I also didn't want to be "that person" who flips out every time there are a bunch of 000s.
In First Contact Riker mentions humans learning to travel faster then light to Cochrane so my question is this. Does warp drive break causality?
Oh and Commander Nhan is hot
No. He didn't give Cochrane the equations or design schematics.
The concept of FTL was around way before that. Now giving Cochrane the idea of a Federation and a Starfleet... but again these were just things he jotted down notes about, not anything concrete he could use to TELL people how to create the Federation.
It's like showing someone from a cakeless world a Battenburg or a Victoria Sponge, but not giving them the recipe. If they even know what jam is.
I know all that I've watched the movie a fair few times, but does Warp drive itself break causality in any way? I've read many contradictory ideas on this.
I'll do it! I'll do it! I (even like to) flip out more than an uncoordinated hamster in one of those wheels...
And today, the forum passed 400,000 "Messages"! Life is amazing!
Awkward Moment. When you get a birthday present from someone who's not a fan and it's a DVD of TWOK. Then I'm asked point-blank in front of everyone, "You don't have this one, right?" Of all the ones.
But it's the thought that counts. So I said, "I don't have the Director's Edition!" Which is technically the truth. I sold the copy I previously had of the DE to an FYE store years ago. Then got the Blu-Ray Set of the first six movies shortly thereafter.

I'm a cheap Commodore, so I don't have access to the other lounges, and I didn't include the subfora, like Doctor Who or Star Wars. I generally steer clear of the non-Star Trek fora, so I was surprised to see that they are so much more active, even today with all the Star Trek you could ever want in production.
Looks like TrekCore is down, again. Got this message:
Picard: "I really tried, but the Vineyard never truly felt like home."
Janeway: "I just spent the past seven seasons in prison on another show."
Sisko: "I'm still part God!"
There is something that has irritated me about every ST series and every ST movie. In space "up" and "down" are not absolute but are relative to the viewer's position; consider two spaceships, one rotated laterally 180deg from the other, the crew on each ship would deem themselves right-side-up and the other ship upside-down. So two, or more, spaceships could encounter in space at any angles and as long as there was no need for them to physically interact there would be no problem, in fact probabilities are this is how they would encounter. Yet in all versions of ST vessels in sight of each other are always level with each other and oriented the same, like two naval ships on the ocean. The only ships not seen like this are damaged or derelict.
Another across-the-board nitpick with ST movies and series. In space the life support systems would have priority for getting power, if nothing else on the ship is functional you need life support or you will not be functional for long. And in the background chatter on the bridge you often hear something like "gravity at zero-point-eight" - obviously gravity is being created and monitored on the ship. How often do we see a ship, Federation or other, completely without power, to the point someone notes life support systems are down? ...yet they still have gravity. In these situations the crew should be moving around like astronauts on the ISS, not sitting and walking normally.
