I'll never forget showing up the morning after the pilot premiered [on Sep. 26, 2001] and there was a guy in front of the studio with a sign that said, "Love the show, hate the song." And I pulled into the lot and thought, "Really? Is that what we've become?" We have this horrible thing that's happened on our own planet, in our country and we make a TV show, it's fiction.

To be fair, the theme song was arguably worse than 9/11.

fusillade762: And your rant reminds me of some pretty funny Star Trek warning posters I saw once. Hell if I can find them now, though.

Star Trek rant on.

After watching nothing but Star Trek episodes on Hulu all of last month I have come to the conclusion that Starfleet and the Federation are a bunch of idiots. A few random things I've never understood:

How come every time they do battle they get their asses handed to them? Sure they eventually get out alive, but only by the skin of their teeth. How the hell did they get to be the superpower of the galaxy when every battle they get into cripples them?

What the hell is with their computer security? How many times has someone transported off the ship, stolen a shuttlecraft or sent a secret message through subspace by simply bypassing the security codes? If they're that easy to bypass then they aren't very secure codes are they?

Why is it that in every episode involving the holodeck it screws up in one way or another, putting the ship and crew in peril? Why the hell do they put these malfunctioning deathtraps on starships?

How is it they can communicate millions of light-years across space but they can't contact an away team when they're in a cave?

How come when there's a medical emergency on board they transport the person directly to sickbay, yet when there's a security breach they travel half way across the ship on foot?

Why does every major system on the ship break down so damn easily? They take one little phaser blast and even though the shields are still up something will break down. Not only that but it's almost always the system they need the most at that moment. Isn't the point of shields to absorb the damage so the ship doesn't?

Why does everything have to be done manually? Shouldn't emergency procedures come automatically? If the hull of the ship is blasted away shouldn't the ship automatically put up a temporary force field in its place? If the shields go down in battle shouldn't emergency power automatically be rerouted to them?

Ok I'm done for now.

And why do they put explosives inside every console?


Incentive. At some part of Star Trek's history, North Korea became the primary world power and to prevent people from farking up at their jobs, they loaded the consoles with explosives.

Jim from Saint Paul: FirstNationalBastard: You Are All Sheep: I liked Voyager :(

Voyager was good, as long as it was a Doctor episode, or maybe a 36D of Nine episode.

Otherwise... no. Just no.

Yes, she was eye candy.

Don't let that distract you from the idea that she was a very unique character who got to experience things that no other ST character had. 7 of 9 was a great character.


The Voyager episodes I always end up re-watching always involve either The Doctor or Seven. Or, the occasional episode where it's about both of them.

/Chakotay gets Seven? fark you, producers. It should have been The Doctor and Seven hooking up at the end of the show, perhaps while the Doctor beats Andy Dick EMH Mark 2 to death with a crowbar.

I really liked Enterprise, honestly.  For the most part.  I wanted to know more about the suliban and that time-traveller dude who somehow makes me think of agent Coulson.  But holy hell did that Xindi shiat try my patience.  Worst season EVER.  Maybe because I'm not an american and was sick of hearing them go on about terrorists and why are you putting them in my Star Trek.

What always confused me about the universal translator is that it can can clearly translate just about any language for anyone, anywhere.  So, how come Chekov, who is clearly Russian with an accent so heavy that not even the computer can understand him, doesn't simply speak russian and let the universal translator do it's thing?

Mentat: fusillade762: Giggity!

That picture is some pretty clever trolling by the marketing department.  They knew every Trek geek would freeze that scene, so they stuck a url on the wall above and to the right of her.


I tried going to www.lowclearance.com but there's nothing there :(

fusillade762: People either loved or hated the theme song and people loved or hated that I had a dog on board.

There were people who hated the dog?


Given that the presence of the dog enabled the writers to come up with "A Night in Sickbay", the hate may be justifiable.


Does anyone know if "Admiral Archer's prize beagle" which Scotty tried to transport in the JJ Abrams reboot was a deliberate reference to Porthos?  I thought it was, and was the only person in the theatre who laughed at the line during the screening...

The worst, worst, WORST Star Trek series...I normally like ST and I couldn't stand to watch it when my husband rented the dvds.  Even he couldn't stand the show after the episode where the alien said something to the effect of "We don't have water, but this is the equivalent"...really?  An alien species that can breathe our own air doesn't have water?  Of course, it was just stupid with the guy getting pregnant by the alien.  Can't they just pretend it never existed?  That's what I've been doing for years now.

The song was terrible but the montage during it was pretty cool. They even did a mirror universe version.
