Shooting women is generally frowned upon.
THE SHOUTING ABOUT THE WOMEN AND THE BLUE WARP NACELLES!!!
Headache, too much shouting.
Totally agree. There's nothing at all wrong with his portrayal in my mind but I have to admit that I wish it was Cawley they hired to do it lol
I really hope we get a ep were all the male crew members vanish and Una yells "THE MEN!"
For one thing, he's twenty years too old.
Yeah, it’s unclear why Carter felt the need to keep the Salt Vampire a secret*.
Sure, it killed Nancy, but it seems like even that could have been explained away as an accident. Go with that and say they need the salt immediately and everything probably turns out for the best.
* = although, now for the first time ever I’m wondering if he was having sex with it and ooged myself out…
Jesus, of course he was. His motivation for everything he did was explained very clearly by Kirk: he got to live in a fantasy world, because the alien would become anyone and do anything in exchange for salt.
Precisely. Robert Crater was in a mutually beneficial relationship with the salt vampire. She spared his life in return for access to a reliable salt supply and both had a good thing going until the Enterprise and McCoy arrived. Kirk and his crew upset that balance between Crater and the salt vampire and ended five years of what amounted to relative harmony on planet M-113.
Yeah, that aspect of the episode made logical sense. What didn't make sense to me is why an intelligent creature (which the Salt Vampire was as it spoke and asked the the question to Kirk in the guise of Dr. McCoy and effectively wanted to see if Kirk would let it live - although by that time it had killed 3 crewmen); would decide to hunt/feed on the crewmen it did instead of just going to the mess hall (hey 1st season ) and raiding the salt stores?
And yes, I know why as it was 'the Monster of the week' for the episode, but yeah if it was intelligent and DIDN'T want to die/be killed - its actions didn't fit.
Sorry, lol, I think when you first watch something as a little kid certain things just go over your head - and since this episode was bottom of the barrel for me, I've rarely revisited or contemplated it.
AND FEDERATION PRESIDENT RICHARD ROBAU!
WALK WITH ME!
Watched the new trailer for S2 and Paul Wesley is nice to look at. I like that little smile he gives Laan. I think I will accept him as my personal savior now.
The Robau never needs to shout.
But Robau is so powerful he can shout even while never opening his mouth.
This Kirk is some 10 years younger than Kirk of TOS. This is how Shatner looked some 10 years earlier than in TOS.
Compare to Nu Kirk...
Pretty damn close, imo.
Someone could do the face app thing to see how it looks. Someone did that with Pine and Shatner and it worked surprisingly well.
I cannot do that, sorry.
But the biggest differences to my eyes are nu-Kirks lack of Shats cheekbones and a wider nose bridge.
FaceApp does not really work that way - it's not deepfake technology, exactly. But here's the best I could get out of it:
He kind of looks like Ed Speleers.
