8. When things go bad take off your shirt, flex your pecs and commence wrestling. This works especially well for women.

Actually, that's the prefix code. Never did find out where that bloody override was.

Weak leaders surround themselves with yes men who are afraid to argue with them. That fosters an organizational culture that stifles creativity and innovation,... Historically, this has led to some serious disasters, such as Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

I giggled. Not sure if the author was talking about the downfall of the Senate, or the creation of the movie itself.

A James will be loved while a Kathryn will be despised for pulling the exact same 'screw the prime directive' stunts.

Captain Kirk didn't blow up the ship while everyone was still on board. Please take note, business leaders.

I'm guessing the correct response to that would be "Yes."

Hire lots of people that are smarter than you but do not want your job. Put them in a position they are passionate about and give them the resources they need.

Then take all the credit. Real team-building doesn't happen at seminars.

Yeah, that was the real beauty of that line. Most will read it as having to do with the events IN the film, but it applies even that much better to the mere existence of the movie.

15) Never put a list on one page when you can stretch it over two. You know...to ease the parallelic reverb on the warp coils.

Having watched bonus material on the DVD, which includes GL in a room full of yes men agreeing and praising idiotic ideas, I would go with the latter.

I'm sure many of you Farkers know a lot about the creation of the OT. What never ceases to amaze me is that George wrote, rewrote, and revised the script for the original movies several times. Characters and situations evolved again and again.

Imagine if GL had put even half that amount of effort into the scripts for the prequels.

Scotty is the unsung badass of TOS. Spock even commented about his "ruthless efficiency" several times.

Kirk was an awful captain. What kind of leader tolerates that much backtalk from his crew and takes the entire chain of command with him as the away party?

Or casting- no one could read wooden dialogue better than Harrison Ford (ok, Walken would've been interesting) and make it sound snarky.

The making-of movie that came with the Phantom Menace DVD is far more interesting than the Phantom Menace. It's fascinating that Lucas must have approved the video that so clearly shows his employees struggling to conceal their feelings after seeing the first cut of the film. Also Rick McCallum checking the severe set damage after a sandstorm in Tunisia is more dramatic than whether the Gungans and the Naboo might form an alliance to repel the Trade Federation.
