    No he didn't, because I think I might have that one! Especially if it has the Klingons in it!

    No. It was one of the DC Annuals.

    The one I've got is a monthly issue I believe, but it could have been reprinted in the annual perhaps? I can't tell you what the number was but I think it's either number 59 or somewhere in the 60s!

    Gentlemen, I was having fun with Kor. I never thought he was mistaken. To underestimate Kor invites disaster.

    Yes... "We Klingons have a reputation for ruthlessness." :lol:

    Spock had Pike beamed aboard; and even if he had seen Pike 'sparkle' away; remember immediately after that Mendez is informed via intercom that the 1701 is warping out of orbit and refuses to acknowledge the Starbase's hails.

    Piper had already said that Pike was under observation every hour of every day; I doubt that she was the only observer.
    I like this idea. Manipulating the feed from Pike’s room should be no problem for someone holding an A-7 computer expert rating. ;)

    Maybe they piggybacked off Spock's telepathy to get increased range! Spock could feel the "Intrepid" deaths, after all.

    No reason we can't return to Talos IV at some point. Who says Pike and Vina weren't cured of their conditions somehow and left the planet? Plenty more adventures for Pike. No one has ever stated his storyline ends forever in The Menagerie. Give him the Zefram Cochrane treatment and send him back to Starfleet. I'm sure Anson Mount would be great leading his own Pike show set after TOS and Discovery.

    No, but some of the people on this board certainly could be, based on that criteria

    Please, no. Pike did his bit for King and Country. Let him enjoy retirement and post-Starfleet life.

    In the words of Han Solo, "Now you're getting nasty." :hugegrin:

    Maybe that's the joke, but I thought it was Indiana Jones who said that to Belloq (sp?) in "Raider of the Lost Ark".

    The line between imagination and batshit crazy is sometimes a very thin one. ;)
