      My blog (see: link in my signature) has been updated with ALL the rest of my photos/anecdotes of San Diego Comic Con 2017.  I threw it together last night after an exhausting 5 days, so forgive any punctuation or grammatical errors, okay?

    • Time problems like this happen all the time in books, TV shows and movies. I was just reading a book where the hero took something like half a day to drive somewhere and a full day to walk back. Even at say 50 km/hr, 10 hours of driving would get you 500 km or a little over 300 miles. You can't walk 300 miles in a day. The needs of the story outweigh the needs of reality sometimes. 
    • What about the white-knuckle tension that comes with knowing they'll be back....AND in greater numbers. Dun-dun-duuuuuunnnnnnnnnnn. 
    • The TNG technical manual conceded the point and stated that the speed scales had been recalculated from TOS to TNG.
    • Well, Trek hasn't always understood warp speeds it seems.  TMP: Earth to Vulcan in 4 days (presumably at warp 7). JJ Trek: Earth to Vulcan in roughly 4 minutes (at maybe Warp 9). TOS also never stipulated there was a limit to warp speeds either (warp 11?). Remember in Broken Bow, Trip says Earth to Neptune and back in 6 minutes (presumably at warp 5)? Maybe 6 seconds... Something else about this episode; Scotty says no way to repair the engines on their own. So how did they get to a Starbase I wonder?
    • Well, we knew the Kenobi movie was an eventuality, do it’s not exactly like they sprang it on us. I’m just trying to imagine how much Kenobi ‘story’ is left to tell; We saw him retire to a life of hermitude and Luke-watching on Tatooine at the end of ROTS, and we see him 20 years later as a “crazy old man” in SW77.     While I really enjoyed Ewan McGregor in the role (one of the few things that actually worked in the prequels), it’s hard to muster much enthusiasm without knowing more.  As it is, we should be watching a movie about a guy growing into retirement age in a hot desert while occasionally scaring off sandpeople and going to the local market for groceries, etc.  It might as well be called “Florida Retirement: The Movie.”
