    A good thing as they all could have ended up salamanders.

    Or worse, on shrooms.

    Well, it is considered classical music by the 23rd century. :)

    Well, maybe it's a Kelvin effect...

    Like Khan's ethnic origin for example...

    It was more of Kirk's jam.

    True, Scotty called it loud and distracting.

    "I like the beats and shouting!" just popped into my head.

    I hope Jaylah's in the next movie.

    IMO, we'll only be sure that there is a next movie the day they start filming, which isn't for at least a year and a half until then, they still can change their minds, which they've done several times already.

    My dad loaded nukes into planes in the late 60s and told me things that make it easy to believe you. :biggrin:

    Given the number of manmade nuclear accidents aboard bombers and in silos I'm not shocked. It's a miracle we haven't had an ICBM's warhead detonate in its silo and kill untold thousands upon thousands. The 1980 incident in Arkansas came frighteningly close.

    oh, I’m sure there will be a new Star Trek movie one day. I’m just not too sure that day is coming anytime soon.

    I thought it was some sort of future Boimler. He looked like he had graying hair.

    Our salvation is that probably most of these missiles are duds. Incompetence and sloppy work save us again.

    No, most of them likely work and all too frighteningly well. Given the right chain of events these warheads will detonate as designed. Some will be duds but hopefully we'll never have to find out which.

    This could be quite plausible. A few months back, my family and I visited a decommissioned nuclear alert launch facility in southeastern Wyoming. To my surprise, the tour guide told us the silo (still active, now controlled directly by NORAD)was 15-20 miles away from the site! None of the launch personnel would actually be able to see the doors (which I think slide open sideways and would be difficult to see even nearby). If that one little circuit conveying the information from the silo to the launch site lighting up the "doors open" light is broken (or if the bulb is burned out), they would literally never know unless someone actually went out to the silo (which is in an extremely remote area where nobody can easily see it from a road or anything), either to inspect it visually or fly nearby and happen to notice the open doors.

    That and most FedGov equipment is supplied by the lowest bidder. YMMV.
