I did not receive the first warning. My lips are sealed. Sorry.
There are people here with creds in the biz. Like Maurice.
We're generally a friendly bunch in here, but as the rules say, arguments are "post not poster", so by all means free to argue—we all do. We just try to make it about the argument proper and not the persons making them.
In "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield":
Just noticed that when Lokai gives his creatively-filmed speech in Act 3 (with Spock eavesdropping) -- we hear Chekov's voice, with dialogue spoken by him, as if Chekov is one of the four people at the table. But he isn't.
Hey, great catch! And you're right! It's Sulu, Hadley, Brent and some redshirt (who I think is the orderly who attacks McCoy in The Tholian Web).
There could have been more than one table with more crew (i.e. Chekov) listening to Lokai in the Recreation Room.
He may have given the same speech to new groups as they (i.e. Chekov) later arrived in the Recreation Room.
His good friends Sulu, Hadley and Brent may have filled him in later when they saw each other.
Yeah, Chekov might have been off-camera. Heck, I think Lokai was. But Chekov is heard speaking, so I don't see how #3 works.
Just a quick question, did anyone else wear a short sleeved shirt other than McCoy?
Yeah, I was just about to say, M'Benga did, because unfortunately we don't know his rank, in turn because he had no sleeves.
The man that attacked McCoy in The Tholian Web was an orderly and not a red shirt as I recall, Phase!
It's a medical thing. Keeps him from dragging his sleeve through his patient's wounds.
I wonder why engineers never had short sleeves, though. Getting your sleeve caught in something could be dangerous for you.
Machinists wear short sleeves and no gloves to avoid them getting caught in rotating equipment. Does the Enterprise have rotating equipment in the engineering control rooms? I never see any.
I dunno. Maybe behind unopened (in the episodes) panels.
It all probably plasma this and plasma that. But you might have a point, Scotty did say in The Trouble With Tribbles:
SCOTT: They're into the machinery, all right, and they're probably in all the other food processors too.
SCOTT: Probably through one of the air vents.So, there is "machinery" which could imply moving parts. Also, the air vents move air somehow; why not with fans?
Thanks for the reference.
Long sleeves are all right when you’re working on pretend machinery.
Looks like he's giving it a good flossing.
"Quick, look busy; the Captain's coming."
Definitely, JB! I just meant that I think it's the same actor!
