  1. I'm sure the overseas market will save it, but...damn, just, no.
  2. I have no faith in this.
  3. Pretty much no one will.
  4. One can only hope.
  5. Maybe he was building another space sailboat.
  6. besides the look of the Bridge, thats the best that bridge ever looked. The problem with Nemesis isn't the script (Read John Logan's entire uncut script, its actually pretty good) , the problem was the editor for a director that couldn't stop cutting important stuff out, and couldnt get away from his "dark" palette. Listen to his commentary, he says "dark, darker, more dark" over and over and over again. Not to mention Digital Domain did a very crappy job with special effects. Star Trek Insurrection was cinematic enough. I had a blast watching it in the theatre wan i was 12. Anyways, Ill take Baird's DARK over JJ's OH MY GOD I CANT SEE ITS SO BRIGHT LENSFLARE any day. Somewhat surprises me considering Baird was and is a film editor. And INS is a second season episode someone rightly left on the floor.
  7. Makes sense to me. I mean, it's logical. A Vulcan male is going to die unless he surrenders to that biological imperative. I can see many circumstances where another Vulcan (co-worker, family friend, or total stranger) could decide that sex with the person was preferable to them dying, even if only as a humanitarian thing like stopping someone from choking on the street. The act was the act for whatever purpose. I completely see Vulcans willing to see it as that and simply part company. Indeed, arguably, that's all Saavik did; kept Spock from dying.
  8. Ah. Been a long time since I subjected myself to watched Voyager, though I do like Vorik. As to the question, I'm guessing that if that bond is broken there's no one person for them to fixate on, they're just...in it. They just find a mate normally.
  9. Neither was Vorik (Voy)
  10. It's painfully bad. Much worse than Nemesis, IMHO, though that's not to imply that Nemesis is any kind of "good."
  11. They're just true friends.It's a genuine and sweet bromance. It's all over both of them when they're together and it's a great thing to see. Photos of them together always make me smile.
  12. What I never quite grasped was that the Horta knew what the device was and where it was in order to strike with precision and take the ONE piece of equipment the colony needed to continue functioning. Why not simply melt the damn thing? Problem solved, or at least delayed enough while they try to get in with new equipment...maybe even long enough for her babies to hatch, grow, and know how to defend their home.
  13. I wonder where the Lucas Replicant buried the original?
  14. Yeah, a far cry from Lucas 1.0, a guy who found a special effect without a purpose dull and uninteresting.
  15. Hell, about a year or so after "Frequency" came out the director said he just came up with the perfect ending and wished he could reshoot it.
  16. They're dead. They stood in the way of one of the greatest mining finds of the century. There's no way anyone cared enough about the what and why of them to let them impede the progress of an Empire that could only survive and continue to through conquest.
  17. I know how that goes. By the time I get around to it, it may well be the GOTY Edition, but I've heard nothing but good things. GooglePlay Music has the soundtrack so I'll definitely give that a listen.
  18. Not yet. Andromeda is going to suck up a lot of my time, but it's on my list.
  19. I might be interested in a future one-off where they try to keep the peace in the face of something, but why should I care about a Morpheus story or anything that came before Neo, simply because, if the trilogy had any message at all it's, Neo was the whole point.
  20. I admit that I find Rita oddly alluring just now, but I was too old for Power Rangers even when it was a thing.
  21. Not much to add other than my complete agreement.
  22. "It was good that they did that."
  23. I suspect that it is. I recognize the Andorian at least.
  24. Annoyed the Federation to the point of surrender.
  25. There's a subtlety to even the "in your face" social commentary. It, like Logan, deserves multiple viewings.
