    It's an interesting concept nevertheless: that Vulcans would have the opposite reaction to mounting casualty numbers, due to their telepathy.

    Inimitably Spockian for Spock to point out that objectively speaking, and undeniably, he is the more compassionate of the two!

    That's absolutely hilarious in fourth-wall-what-fourth-wall acknowledging that much of the stuff written for Sulu ended up being Chekov's and vice versa...

    Those things are admittedly cool, but a green, glowing, transluscent Melvin Belli?

    No. I mean, I agree, cool touch, but ... a green, glowing, transluscent Melvin Belli.

    We must?

    No.

    And you've given that way too much thought.

    Yeah... I appreciate the effort, but that Federation banner is about as inspiring as a real estate sign.

    You mean the USS Enterprise is what,a Starfleet type of retro-steampunk art installation?

    And of the six he commanded, the only two who never gave him any guff at all were Scotty or dead.:cool:

    If I want ice cream, I'll eat it, not watch it on Star Trek.

    The lower photo looks like the early 70's minicomputer trainer that we had in our electronics lab back in high school. Lots of switches and lights just like that, but it looked like it belonged on NX-01 Enterprise rather than the movie refit.

    That scene in "The Savage Curtain" in which "Surak" (as imitated by Kahless) says (not convincingly and with poor line delivery )
    "Help me Spock! Help me!" I use that line exactly as delivered at work when I'm in a bit of trouble with some instrument.

    I think anytime a alien or even the show would have a female character,often one in Starfleet, have to wear a old timey dress.

    Too bad Mr Boma didn't "red shirt" it. :(

    Boma was providing dramatic conflict. To eliminate him would be so TNG.

    The first MST3K episode I ever heard used it too.....completely without context, of course.

    I feel a big part of this is the fault of Spock himself, he should have verbally slapped Boma down, and in front of the others. Spock was in command, that means being in command.
    The only male actor who could give out a really good scream was Shatner, and his character had just disappeared.
    Given what we see in the episode Realm of Fear, being able to talk and move around makes perfect sense.

    A normal transport take less time, but it still takes several seconds and (from Realm of Fear) they never lose mental consciousness or awareness of their surroundings.

    Melvin Belli I can handle, but Melvin Belli in a flowery mumu is just going too far. He comes across like Marlon Brando trying to hide his obesity.

    Or like he's wearing a slicker or shower curtain. I guess that's to protect him from all the hail, fire and snow. :guffaw:
