Soulcatcher: Han Solo went from smuggler to General pretty quick too.
I Like Bread: TOS has probably been responsible for more idiotic sci-fi tropes than any other franchise.
Madbassist1: As a result, he was commissioned directly to the rank of captain and appointed as commanding officer of the service's flagship, the USS Enterprise. This makes me cry...and hate.
Jaws75: Unfortunately, the makers of ST09 and STID--and Paramount itself--don't get any of this at all.
sprag: Wellon Dowd: So you're expecting 24-year-old Kirk to be the same as 34 or 54-year-old Kirk?Nope, but a real person would be a vast improvement. There were no qualities in the 24yo version of Kirk that would allow him to grow into the legend that he's surely to become. Being an ass isn't a legendary quality. He was a one dimensional character and the writers bent the universe around so he could become a captain and start down that road.I'm pretty sure that pushing someone and catching them before they fell while saying "Saved your life" would get you promoted to admiral in that universe...
Mugato: RexTalionis: The other movies (Star Trek III, Star Trek V, Star Treks VII-X - actually, especially VII-X) were all big dumb movies.I really don't get the hate for Trek 3.
IdBeCrazyIf: LonMead: And lens flare... lots and lots of lens flare...[static.comicvine.com image 800x340]Needs more flare
