  1. What podcasts do you listen to?

    How, cool! Thank you so much for your input! i need to check these out!
  2. What podcasts do you listen to?

    Nice! Thanks for sharing! Yes, there are times I just drive without any noise in the car at all. Sometimes quiet is a good thing. Unless of course you get off work and have to take the freeway home and need to stay awake, lol.
  3. What podcasts do you listen to?

    For those of you that listen to podcasts, which ones do you listen to? I have several favorites and of course I listen to Trek FM. It's so good and entertaining and there are so many shows on Trek FM. I listen to The Orb; Standard Orbit; Mission Log, etc. They are so good! I also listen to James Bond Radio and The NoSleep Podcast. They are all great programs to listen to on the commute to work and school. This isn't a topic meant to advertise any of the podcasts, I'm just curious to know which ones you guys listen to. Pleas share and I'd love to expand my podcasts! Thank you all!
  4. Rate Generations

    Wow! Nice to see there are more votes for Nemesis than for Insurrection!
  5. Colm Meaney Would Not Join Captain Worf TV Series

    Colm is done with Star Trek. He has stated it several times. Being on the show from '87 to '99 is commitment and I don't blame him for not wanting to return. It would be nice to see if he would be willing to come back briefly as Miles in Star Trek Online, but I highly doubt that too.
  6. I never realized that. That's actually pretty cool. As for the film getting a remastered treatment, I highly doubt that will ever happen. A while back, William Shatner even asked Paramount if he could make a director's cut of the movie and show it how he originally intended it to be, but they refused. I understand effects are never as good as the story, but in this case, it would have been quite an improvement. So, now all we have is just the Blu-ray of the film. Oh, well.
  7. When you watch Star Trek...

    ...do you watch the opening credits every time? Or do you just skip them and go straight to the story?
  8. The case for rebuilding DS9 for blu-ray

    The first two seasons of the show SCREAM for HD. I love those first seasons but they are blurry and not quite up to par with the rest of the series. In any event, I would love to see a Deep Space Nine blu-ray edition! If they don't make one, however...I would not be surprised. It's taken them quite a long time to remaster TNG and as far as I know, they are still working on the rest of the seventh season. As for Deep Space Nine, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they make an HD.
  9. What is your biggest pet peeve about the show?

    Well, you have to remember that Stuart Baird didn't know Star Trek from his left elbow. He even thought Geordi was an alien just because his ocular implants were blue. So, I doubt he would know better than to mention the Bajorans. I'm surprised they managed to mention the Dominion War and how the Remans were used as cannon fodder. Ah, but you seem to be forgetting the roles of 'Writer' and 'Director' What was and what wasn't mentioned in the film had nothing to do with him......that would in fact fall to John Logan. B4 has saying/humming the tune as his positronic brain was slowly assimilating Data's memories...so, not silly at all. Also, as he was an inferior android and not as advanced as Data, it was never going to be a perfect transferral. If Nemesis fared better at the Box Office, a sequel was lined up and Data would have come back....along with all 5 show Captains. Baird IS known for being an editor, so the fact that he was a director probably allowed him to get the final say in how his movie was edited. In addition, the scenes that were deleted from Nemesis were quite good and it's a shame they weren't included. However, Rick Berman himself said that he wanted to make the film under two hours. I mean...it was only TNGs final hurrah...In any event, the result of the film was disappointing. It would have been cool for them to at least explain Worf's duty as Federation Ambassador to Qo'noS as I'm assuming he was still ambassador. But again, you have to remember that they have to make these films appeal to the general movie goer. The people that go to see the films aren't necessarily the same people that watch the shows. That's why ever film had to let the viewer remember that Data was an android. I wish Deep Space Nine crossedover to TNG in the films, but I think the closest we got was the Defiant fighting the Borg in Sector 001.

  11. What is your biggest pet peeve about the show?

    I'd have to agree. I've been listening to the Deep Space Nine podcast branch of Trek.fm called The Orb, and as much as I love it, they do tend to talk a lot about religion. Now, don't get me wrong, that's fine...but one of the hosts is a devoted Catholic and the subject of the Prophets seem to always break off into a lecture on the Bible and Christianity. I respect all religions, but it is a turn off for me. I like it when they talk more about the world of Star Trek and not so much the world of Catholicism. Yes, Star Trek does have origins that sprang from certain religions, but if we just keep it in the universe of Trek and not always associate it to a deeper religion meaning (Star Trek V), that would be better in my opinion. If I wanted a lecture, I'd go to church or watch the religious channel. The Bajorian religion aspect to the show is the only thing that is a bit of a turn off. And the fact that Bajor never joined the Federation.
  12. This is my all-time favorite Star Trek series, however with everything there is a flaw. Do you have any pet peeves about the show? If so, please share them here! I'd love to know!
  13. I guess they just didn't raise shields...Oops...
