    Every once in a while, I would visit your Patrick Stewart thread just to mourn the fact that you weren't here any longer.  Damn glad to see you return!

    I'm drinking if you're buying.

    Rivalry?  None at all.  Most people here are members of other boards including a fair number of refugees from Trekweb which apparently folded.  You have GOT TO go to the home page and look at some of the photo galleries.  There are over 10,000 pictures from all series and movies and you can easily get lost in there.

    Hi, Smellincoffee, old Mutai is happy to see you here.  Not quite as busy as TrekBBS but a lot of variety and much less baiting, trolling, etc.
  5. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Final New (to You) Episode?   

    I probably haven't seen it yet.  I had pretty much lost interest in Voyager during first run and missed a lot of seasons 6 and 7.  I'm going through it now thanks to Netflix and am partway into S7.  There have been a few eps I remember, but it is mostly new territory.  I vaguely remember the final two episodes but I'm curious to see what is waiting for me until I get there.
  6. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic RIP Prince   

    As we all age, the universe of people who touched our lives diminishes with increasing speed.  The performance of Purple Rain from the movie was visceral and I can feel it in my bones at a moment's notice.  When the favorites in my vintage like Elton John, Billy Joel, Cat Stevens, Jagger start to croak, the feeling of mortality will surely become dark and heavy.  RIP Prince Rogers Nelson.  May your music live on.

    Yep, I was there with The Lady Sho-Rin and both adult daughters for a 70th birthday treat a month early.  It was a treat to meet Selhat and bride IRL, he actually recognized me in the crowd waiting for the doors to open.  I do have a great family and was so happy to be together with them for this memorable event.  Our younger daughter lives in LA near Pasadena so we get to see her more often but the older one lives near Monterey, CA and works at the Monterey Bay Aquarium so our visits with her are less frequent.
     
    Selhat perfectly described the scene and the music.  It was a grand experience that we'll reflect upon for a long time to come.
  8. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Queer/LGBTQ Characters?   

    If Disney can put gay guys in Tangled, Why can't Trek do the same.  My one hope is that it isn't an item of focus, just subtly included as the natural thing it is.
  9. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Hello there!!!   

    Well Sarah, it is probably a crime in some states for me to even reply to you 'cause you're so young and I'm - ummmm - not.  We raised our girls (now in their 30s) on TNG and they both remain trek fans to this day.  On another topic, I've visited Calgary and Edmonton several times on business and found them both very appealing.  Calgary, especially, was cool although when I went there the first time it was damned COLD!

    OK, that's the show that the Lady Sho-Rin is taking me to.  We'll have to connect after the show.  Send me a PM with your cell phone number and we can meet somewhere in the building.  I've never been to Pantages so this is all a new experience.

    Turns out I'm going to the Los Angeles showing with my child bride on either April 1 or 2.  Why don't I know?  It his her gift to me for my 70th birthday and I'm not supposed to know but the credit card report gave it away.  I'm sure we would have done it in Orange County in May but we'll be in Florida those dates.  I'm really looking forward to it.

    One of the features of this site is that we moderators have fairly broad allowance for handling things without having to drag in the Admin team.  Confronting would-be troublemakers is expected and accepted.  At TrekBBS, the admins are MUCH more protective of hostile behavior and it makes it harder to maintain control, especially in controversial topics like the JJverse movies or Enterprise.

    Greetings, RAMA!  I'm the same old Mutai from the TrekBBS TNG forum and I know you well.  I believe you'll enjoy it here, its a bit more mellow than most other boards with a distinct lack of trolls.
  14. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Hooray for Alexander Courage   

    How did this get in the moderators' forum?  Should'nt we move it to the regular TOS section?

    Like Garak, I can't ignore the cars.  Certainly establishes the timeline.
