I would like to suggest two threads if I may. I put this here because I don't know where else to put it and i still can't start new threads. #1 I just finished watching TMP. And I've come to realize something about it for the first time. I think this movie inadvertently predicted the coming of the NSA. Here's how I came to that realization. At the beginning we see the monitoring station, well, monitoring the Klingons attack V'Ger. Then I realized that that station is a lot like the NSA complex in Utah. It has sophisticated monitoring technology to monitor an incredibly large terriory of outer space. BUT whether it is meant to intentionally spy on Klingon space, or is just to monitor interstellar phenomenon for scientific purposes, or is just a station to monitor the Federation space and possible incursions into it, well, that has never really been truly defined. Here is the website for that Utah complex: http://www.generationsoflight.com/ You see, this complex is for the monitoring of all 320 million Americans and millions more people overseas, friend and foe alike. So, this raises ethical questions, of course, and the possibility that if that base is for espionage, then could it have been set up by Section 31? 2 We all know that original Kirk has a love affair with his ship that is so strong that no woman can tie him down. The Enterprise will ALWAYS pull him back. BUT, i think that there is the possibility that there is one other man who might out do him. And that is Scotty. For while kirk has the connection, Scotty knows the vessel intimately and will even fight Klingons for her honor. So I put the question to you? Who do you think loves the Enterprise more, Kirk or Scotty?
