Awesome! I do believe we have a cast for the second Red sequel.
 
2012-06-05 03:44:51 PM
There were hundreds if thousands of Captains. Not just five.

Oh, wait- There are five Captains!
 
2012-06-05 03:46:27 PM
You know-I realized what Enterprise was attempting-The cast was actually very good and it did have interesting characters. But I don't think anyone was clamoring for an "Orgin" story of the Federation. I wondered what they could have accomplished had they actually tried having the series in a future time frame of Star Trek...

Patrick Stewart is starting to look old.

Also, I wonder... after this convention, did Dr. Sam Becket return home?

Dr. Sam Becket never returned home.

So Avery Brooks is a vampire now?

Check out Captains where Shatner interviews all the captains that are on stage in that pic. Avery Brooks (Sisko) totally out-batshiat crazies Shatner. Shatner actually looked scared.

I think he's Blade.

Where's Chris Pine? Or Bruce Greenwood since he's the only living version of Capt. Pike?

My dad, My granddad, my granddad's buddy Earl (from his Vietnam days), my Aunt Kathy, my weird Uncle Dave who always smelled his fingers after scratching his ear..

My first question to Captain Janeway: How does it feel to be the worst Star Trek captain ever?

My second question to Janeway: How DARE you? HOW DARE YOU!

Pine was one of the ones interviewed in the aforementioned "Captains" movie that Shatner made. In fact they arm wrestled.

The only thing I hated were the flimsy excuses for constantly sexifying the hot Vulcan chick. Just make the hot chick non-Vulcan instead of constantly trying to come up with 'clever' ways of getting some titty time with the science officer.

This was a gathering of Star Trek captains, not generic space movie captains.

I liked the idea of the Vulcans who present themselves as people who can never lie actually being lying pricks and actually more emotional than humans.

Looks like Captain Kirk is spending too much time near the food replicators.

All we ever really saw was Spock... it's entirely possible that Spock was acting like the perfect Vulcan to overcompensate for being half human, and that Vulcans really are dicks.

Darth_Lukecash: But I don't think anyone was clamoring for an "Orgin" story of the Federation.


There was a popular game out back then called "Birth of the Federation" and I think that was what they were trying to emulate. I liked how they tried to fill in the back story for shows that took place in their future (the first meeting of the Klingons that went bad, all the Archer planets mentioned in the other series, why the Klingons looked different in TOS). Like all the newer Treks, it found its way in the 3rd and 4th seasons but by then it was too late.

Mugato: Check out Captains where Shatner interviews all the captains that are on stage in that pic. Avery Brooks (Sisko) totally out-batshiat crazies Shatner.


I saw that on Netflix about the time Brooks was arrested for drunk driving. My thought was he had stopped by Quark's for a few before the interview

if they got rid of Hoshi for something more useful, like a tribble, it would have been fantastic to do another sequel show. they even could have done Archer as a descendant of the federation founding Archer and played up the whole pressure of living up to your name.

You know, the weird part was that she was a Vulcan with obvious breast implants. What does a Vulcan need with breast implants? Logically, she wanted Sexy Time.

I liked Hoshi-a non adventurous person being drafted for a dangerous mission because she has a talent that not many people have.

Well they do have that Pon Farr thing they have to deal with every 7 years when they have the uncontrollable urging to mate. Which occurred to me long after I saw Star Trek 3 as a kid. When baby Spock was growing exponentially on the Genesis planet, did Saavik have to fark him for the Genesis equivalent of every 7 years?


damageddude: I saw that on Netflix about the time Brooks was arrested for drunk driving. My thought was he had stopped by Quark's for a few before the interview


I know what drunk looks like. He was either on some serious psychedelia or he's just crazy. Either way, it's all good, he was in The Pale Moonlight.

Avery Brooks is a goddamn space cadet.

It's a tribute to his acting skills that he's able to portray anything that resembles a normal human being.

Darth_Lukecash: I don't think anyone was clamoring for an "Orgin" story of the Federation.


I would have preferred a "Captain Sulu of the Excelsior" show, but I would have settled for a reasonable, well-written, coherent Federation origin story.

Sadly, I got neither.

Mugato: When baby Spock was growing exponentially on the Genesis planet, did Saavik have to fark him for the Genesis equivalent of every 7 years?


I think it's heavily implied that Saavik and Spock did it, so that young Spock wouldn't have to go through whatever it is that happens to male Vulcans when they don't get their rocks off during Pon Farr

/at least gave him a handy

if you saw "The Captains" documentary that Shatner did, you'd know Brooks is completely out of his mind.

Little known fact: all Vulcans are ambidextrous?
 
2012-06-05 05:21:58 PM
Nah, there would be no point to the Pon Farr if it could be cured with a simple hand job. Saavik had to take the deep dicking.

2012-06-05 05:50:32 PM

Darth_Lukecash: And it is a valid question.

The Vulcan penis is an erectile structure without external sheath or foreskin, therefore Vulcans have no need for circumcision. As part of the evolutionary process of T'Khasi life, the male organ is almost fully retracted into the body when not in use as a protective measure. Vulcans also have two testes in a scrotal structure that is close to the body, not pendulous, and a prostatic body that produces and stores seminal fluid. Once ejaculated, the sperm of Vulcans is viable for a maximum of about 30 hours before losing mobility. It is believed that Vulcan males remain fertile during their entire adult life.

They don't. The new Trek does have it's detractors among the really die hard TOS fans. I know a Star Wars fan who loved the originals, but totally hated ever sequel afterwards.

I qualify as a Star Trek fan and I really didn't like the Pine Trek movie. Why? It would have been fine had they called it Space Movie #32425. Explosions? Check. Nauseating camera moves. Check.

There was none of the meaning and thoughtfulness that marks the best Trek. Look at the last several episodes of Deep Space Nine. There are explosions and fights, sure. But there are deep characters who are dealing with big issues and making big decisions.

///Expect a similar review after they release the film of Ender's Game. Or as I call it, Space Movie #32426.
