You lot are really making me want to watch Star Trek now...

Well done.

Is that the whole ploy? Just to make as many people want to watch it as possible?

pretty much, it would seem.

apparently a verbal altercation in the staff lounge over Shatner - vs - Picard

and as a result you get what we see here.

some men just cain't be reached.

That's what it is! It's an evil...or maybe just fun and mischievous... conspiracy to make us want to watch more Star Trek.

Good thing I have one of the episodes on DVD at home: The Inner Light. Cause and Effect is another awesome episode.

And the episodes with Spot were fun. Reading about those earlier in the thread cracked me up. It reminded me of the one episode where Data declared Spot untrainable because he couldn't keep Spot from jumping up on the console...

And then Spot proceeds to go over to the shelf, look up and meow, and Data immediately offers Spot the food or toy (or whatever it was) on the shelf. Proof that even though Spot may or may not be trainable, he sure had Data trained!

Hahaha!

Well as of now I only have the new one on dvd and it's downstairs so I can't get it without someone commenting on "are you watching that again?" so I'm resisting.

As soon as I get paid though...

Yeah. Only I would ever name a cat "Spot". :shk:

... must have been the result of a transionic disruption in my neuroreceptors.

-grin-

Well...if he were a calico kitty that actually had spots, it would make sense...

Used to have a cat named Spotsy when I was little. Though I don't think I was the one to pick his name.

This thread is full of WIN! but now you make me want to change my avatar and I had a hard enough time becoming Gir!


Now I must add Lwaxana Troi, a Gorn and a Akira class starship to my pics.

Sigh.

Does make me wonder, if this thread had not been started would all of the MODs that changed there avatars even have changed them in the first place . . . . . . . or was this thread part of the ST avatar changing conspiracy?

Before I make any big decision, I ask myself...

"What would the Shat do?"



I cant see why all of us shouldn't embrace Trek

"Location: W.Yorks, England"


Ah, I think I begin to understand...

Could it be because today is the 70th birthday of our fellow Tyke - Sir Patrick Stewart - and he's beamed back home to Mirfield and Huddersfield University today?

Mirfield's Sir Patrick 'dazed but delighted' at 70


Sir Patrick Stewart, Mirfield's most famous son, is marking his 70th birthday by returning to his home turf.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


I'd noticed that he was over here when he was interviewed on the grid at Silverstone yesterday, just before the Formula One Grand Prix, and he was on the local news again this evening.

But maybe someone's already twigged this (I haven't caught up on the whole thread yet) - and if it isn't the reason ... well it should be


"Make it so, 'owd lad, make it so"

Or maybe most of the ones that did change them did so before this thread was started and until they posted here few people had noticed?


Really makes you wonder...

Probably because I saw the original series when it was shown the first time. By the time the newer series' came out, I was otherwise occupied.

Never seen a episode of the Homicide series, or an episode of 24, or either of the Law & Order series, or JAG. I'm extremely backward when it comes to pop culture.
I would never suggest just to watch something just because it's popular. If you don't like it, don't watch it.

In that vein, I actually did see just enough of Law and order, and JAG to decide I didn't want to watch any more so I didn't watch after just one episode, but I at least saw one episode to see what I was missing.

I didn't see 24 when it first aired because I was "otherwise occupied", but eventually I heard people talking about it and decided to watch to see if I liked it or not, it was pretty good.

So I can partially identify with "otherwise occupied" since it happened to me for a few years, but in about 350,000 hours since Star Trek the original series ended, the "otherwise occupied" reason isn't completely registering with me, maybe you didn't really like the original series and that's why you never had any desire to devote even one of those 350,000 hours to watching another hour of Star Trek? Of course you were probably sleeping 120,000 of those hours, but that still leaves 230,000!

Its amazing how the conspiratorial mind works. Very clever of you to come up with that but theres one simple flaw in your argument....

My location is set to W.Yorks, England because, oddly, thats where I live

My avatar is a little-known Star Trek reference....

...from the "Mirror, Mirror" alternate/parallel universe....

( Prove me wrong...
)

Just finished watching the 'commentary' tracks from the Star Trek: Enterprise DVD episode "In A Mirror, Darkly"...and the writers/producers involved agreed that using the "alternate" universe concept gives free range to go a "little wild", without violating Star Trek canon. So, that could have been an enhanced cybernetic weed-killing machine from the [insert clever Star System name here]...


Well, that was their story, and they're sticking to it....great thing about ST; it's very adaptable...

Now, who is next to be assimilated???

Not to throw a wrench into your counting, but Ecidemon is not an ATS moderator.

But I do thank Ecidemon for joining in on the festivities...for whatever reason might be behind them.
