    When you can watch "The Alternative Factor" for the 100th time and still attempt to make sense of it

    I'm pretty sure there are some instancies where the Lazurus's have been swopped over without us seeing the catastrophic collision of matter and anti-matter! :crazy:

    Based on the dialogue, it looks there must be several switches between the two men called Lazarus that happen off screen as has been said.

    Spock later says the phenomenon occurs "when Lazarus has his alleged confrontations." Onscreen the had only been a couple, so that suggests to me there were more.

    Despite briefly seeing Leslie in the chair, this is also one of the episodes that could have had Uhura in command, but off screen.

    Every time you sit in an office chair, or indeed any chair with armrests, you do that distinctive sit-with-your-leg-crossed way of sitting that Shatner used to as Kirk.

    My high school library had three of them, Where No Man Has Gone Before, Galileo Seven, and Piece of the Action. I'd read and re-read them lunch hour after lunch hour :)

    I don't. My legs are big enough that I'll dislocate a hip if I try. The Kirk-Sit is a no-no for me.

    Thank you! :D

    I don't have any tattoos or piercings or whatever... I like my body too much to damage it. If I want a picture on my chest I just put on a T-shirt with one.:D

    I have an oddball friend who only wears plain t-shirts and absolutely doesn't understand why anyone would ever wear something with writing, pictures, logos, etc.

    I still have a TOS 25th anniversary t-shirt which was baggy when I was younger but now works as a muscle shirt.

    I have a 25yo Mickey Mouse shirt I bought at Disneyland that works the same way, though more as "muscle" than as muscle.

    ...you think Shatner deserved a few awards for his acting.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but.

    If you can only get through the day by thinking to yourself, I'm not going to kill, today!

    The last time I watched it I really enjoyed it. I saw through some of the flaws.

    You know you're a TOS fan when you hear of Romulan ale being smuggled out of the Neutral Zone and yet you know it's impossible because of the embargo and the asteroid bases surrounding the area to isolate the Romulan Empire! :rommie:

    If you're watching TCOTEOF for the hundredth time and still hoping that they will somehow save Edith and the timeline.
