    Is this known to be out of line for this board? It's an easy enough constraint to work with if so; there's no real problem getting to the functional equivalent of Hitler without actually mentioning the man.

    Exactly. When she said (something to the effect of) "I wish I hadn't seen what I saw" before she killed him, I assumed she was talking about whatever Oh told/showed her.

    I don't know that!!!!!!!! Stop making these kinds of insulting assumptions, please!!!

    How am I supposed to guess what kind of particular rule you've added to your Island of Dr. Moreau type of list of rules?

    I bet you have no idea what I am talking about.

    My family has done a lot more against nazism that you could imagine. One of my uncles (on my father's side) is a decorated member of the French resitance (though he was born in Poland). My mother was deported and she escaped toward the end of the war and ended up in France. They wanted (the "enlightened" post-war French government) to send her to Stalin and if not for my father's intervention that's where she would have died in some camp in Siberia, like so many other Polish victims.

    Can I have a little respect from you people!!!

    That's nothing. We all knew that already. I thought you had some added insight.

    Whatever it is she killed him for is not likely to be about what he's done since she was there with him, so she should have killed herself as well. She's more likely killed him to prevent him from doing something. That's the only way it makes sense, otherwise, she's just crazy and her "reasons" don't matter.

    If whatever Oh showed Jurati about the synths has to be terrifying enough to cause her to kill her mentor/lover, it must be at least as frightening as what the Precursor told it's ancient human captors about the Flood to cause them to commit suicide.

    I can't wait to find out what Oh knows.

    Its been built up a lot, I just hope it doesn't end up being a damp squib.

    A bunch of images from a mind meld is not really going to cut it.

    It's from the Halo video game back story, which is ridiculously complex and detailed for a first person shooter video game. Its awesome.

    Btw, from The Island Of Dr. Moreau: "Not to go on all-fours; Not to suck up Drink; Not to claw the Bark of Trees..."

    There are dozens of these.

    You don't have to guess. He told you. Take note and move on. Which means stop arguing with mod instructions in the thread--a longstanding policy that you should be very familiar with by now. If you have a case to make, take it to PM.

    An update for the official ruling from as high as it gets: There is no board policy against referencing Hitler.

    The board policy against arguing with mod instructions in-thread stands.

    I do not need to know your family tree. I never said there was a Trek BBS rule against referencing Hitler, feel free to add him to every post, but realize other posters might not enjoy it and take issue. They must not be rude about it however like one was yesterday, which WAS addressed. As far as respect goes, it IS a two way street. As always comments to PM, not in the thread.

    Some imposter claiming to be Bruce Maddox died. The real Bruce Maddox is alive and well. The real Bruce is vital, much like the Discovery S1 Klingons. The real Bruce Maddox is...Brian "Bad M-Fer" Brophy.

    Please believe it

    Damn, the burn! Chakotay is still getting burned after all these years. And it's still funny.

    He's got to come back on this show and redeem himself. :lol:
