    Why speculate? It's not as if they're a long-lost population that died out centuries ago. Ask any living person of American Indian ancestry. I'm sure it varies by culture. They do have less body hair than other ethnicities, but they do shave.

    Sure they had metal blades... but based on ethnic characteristics, they wouldn't even think about shaving. Why would Kirk, who can't remember much of his past anyway. ;)

    I only brought it up, because of how they paid attention to the detail of his sideburns, and "added" to them. I guess they left it up to our imagination for the rest of his facial hair, somehow being shaved. :D

    The main view screen.

    It is not a window. It is a display screen that can show the outside from a variety of directions using exterior cameras (fore, aft, port, starboard).

    So, why is it that when you have these ultra bright glaring effects going on where everyone is trying to shield their eyes, that they just don't dim the display? I'm sure with all of that advanced technology, they'd be able to adjust the contrast/brightness of that view screen. :lol:

    ^ How often do you think to adjust the backlight of your monitor -- especially from a momentary glare?
    Of course, Bermaga thought it was a window...

    Well, you'd figure that the computer systems would auto-dim displays so that they don't blind the crew. ;) Heh, I didn't know that... That Bergman and Braga thought it was a window on TNG. Hilarious!



    Speaking of "unnoticed things"... what really came as a surprise in the first remastering of the TOS episodes was seeing all of those previously cut scenes. I never owned the VHS tapes, so I just watched the reruns periodically. Having seen the episodes many times before this, the previously edited parts added back in felt prominently "new". And a nice surprise (having these old episodes have momentary fresh feeling).

    Anyway, I have the DVD set and watched it through a few times over the past couple of years. Lately, I've been making my way back again watching the remastered HD ones with new special effects. Once again, I'm noticing scenes that look unfamiliar to me. Does anyone know if more "deleted" scenes were added back in, or... is the running time of the episodes exactly the same between the DVD and HD sets?

    She grows it long hoping that Spock will, one day, let her play his Vulcan lyrette.

    Something about Kirk teaching the Nancy Hedford/Companion entity how to use the Universal Vibrator?
    It would have made a good lead-in for a Noxzema commercial, though.

    And I'm sure with their advanced gravity control and inertial-damping technology, they'd be able to keep the crew from being thrown from side to side whenever the Enterprise takes a hit.

    He's quite a klutz with phasers in general. In "Return of the Archons", he fails to fire his gun against the crowd in support of Kirk and Spock (the VFX folks forgot to draw his stun beam effect in); and in ST2, when boarding Regula One, he sets his gun to "kill", as evidenced by the flashing lights, even though Kirk had ordered the stun setting. Also, supposedly he left the safety off or otherwise fudged the settings in "City on the Edge", because a random bum was able to annihilate himself with the gun (and apparently to destroy the gun in the process, too), whereas the clever Nona in "A Private Little War" couldn't find the trigger to save her life...

    People probably learn to duck a lot whenever the Doctor gets hold of a phaser...

    I always thought that the flashing lights were a warning of an overload. I expected McCoy to disappear down a hallway followed by a loud BOOM!

    Now that I have seen that finger I will notice it forever!!

    I don't mind knowing these things -- makes it seem more real in a way.

    I did notice Charles Napier's finger move when he was supposed to be dead, too.
