  1. I don't know why, but last night I decided to log into this website and have a wee look. Had been a long time! Just noticed now this evening that to the day, I joined this site eleven years ago. Time just flies, it really does ... scary lol
  2. In the UK the Sy Fi channel showed TNG in remastered HD right up to season 5. Really looks well, like brand new!
  3. I would say it failed because it lacked charm and a sense of humour. It was too serious - the series focused too much on being 'realistic' and gritty. The stories of seasons 1-3 just unfolded without any major points of interest or novelty. The characters always seemed depressed which affected the audience. I often didn't care what happened to them. They weren't playful like the TNG crew - they were always fed up about something or other, moaning away. The Enterprise itself, as a ship, was rubbish and didn't feel like a character in itself, just a dark, flat CGi, thing that the mundane characters inhabited and flew about in, worried, stressed and miserable. I hated the bridge - boring and without novelty - and I hated engineering. The fact that Enterprise was a prequel meant that everything had to be 'older' than TOS so it was doomed from the start. I think with futuristic programmes and films the only way to go is forward - further into the future (to wow us and test our imagination) not back into flat screen tvs etc. I know that the new Star Trek Movie was a prequal but it embraced the iPod era and just said oh to heck with overly retro technology lets just throw out canon and go with something very funcky and futuristic. Enterprise: you were a slave to the canon and you killed it as a result...
  4. Whew, I am glad to hear that.I know it is sad, but I still believe things cycle and the site will become busy again. Maybe it's because there isn't much new happening with Trek. There are only so many "who is your favourite captain" posts you can discuss lol
  5. I'm only messing with you. Not rich, nothing so exciting. Just joking about. Why is the site so quiet - every time I check in there seems to be less and less activity...
  6. Hello people of Star Trek fans dot net. I am sure you all have had exciting life experiences since I last wrote. To be honest I have sorta forgotten about this website. Is that bad? I write this because I am back home in my kitchen, which is big and shiny and lovely. I've actually become rich since I joined this website 8 years ago. I dont actually log on to internet sites anymore. I am too busy doing stuff to think of such things. I am actually just home from a mad party and I just happened to decide to log on and do things on line like this. I am sure this is not the most cool thing to do but I hosestly think that this is the last thing that Commodor Prometheus 79 will ever type on this website.I am sorry. I lovbe you all. You have been there in the best and the worst of times xxx Kieran
  7. I think that the effects are getting tidied up too. The Enterprise looks like it did at the end of Enterprise...
  8. I am looking forward to seeing TNG in Blu-ray as the re-runs look awful now on a big 40-odd inch sized screen especially when you are used to the high quality we have these days. Even TOS looks better than TNG in its remastered format. I wonder if the silly little things they put into TNG Ocudagrams in the background (like the rubber duck) will show up in HD? I am so glad I have not bought TNG on dvd...
  9. Maybe the Borg have a competetion to see who the new Queen will be ... the Borg factor. Panel consisting of Locutus, Borg Queen from First Contact, Seven of Nine and Hugh. Borg Queen from First Contact: "Honey, love the slimy skin, just the right shade of green, but you need to work on lowering your head down onto a pvc clad body..." Seven of Nine: "I agree, you got the attitude and the look but I was not impressed with your head to body skills tonight ..." Locutus: "Awful, I thought you just droned on all night, you were no better than a level one service drone ..." Audience: BOOOO oooo OOO ooooo Locutus: "No, no, I stand by my comments, a level one service drone in an auxilliary sphere in the Gamma Quadrant!" Hugh: "I like her, I liked her, I did"
  10. SPOCK: What do you think Captain? KIRK: Me me me, me me me. Look at me as i say me with me, myself and I. MCcCOY: Damn'it Jim KIRK: MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE KIRK: MeeeEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeee, I I I I , Me mE MEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEM ME SPOCK: Not logical Captain KIRK: ME SPOCK: Indeed KIRK: ME
  11. Us trying to figure out and understand the Borg is probably like a Neaderthal trying to work an i-pod...
  12. Perhaps this parallel universe Spock is going to lean towards his Human side more than his Vulcan side, just take different choices which would lead him to things like dating Uhura...
  13. She did say during one of her outings in Voyager that she was herself from a member of species something or other. Alice Kridge came back as the Queen at the end of Voyager - Endgame. Not sure whether she was supposed to be the same Borg Queen as that which appeared in First Contact. Timetraveling etc. But think yes she was ultimately a manifestation of some sort of leadership, collective decision making programme, appearing as a single form, easier for the old Humans to interact with. Unsure why her voice isn't the one we hear though when the Borg says "we are the Borg, blah, resistence is futile"
  14. Now Sky 2 are reshowing DS9. Just watching Trials and Tribble-ations... CBS Action are showing Season One of TNG and they have hired a local Trekkie to introduce each episode (as they did with TOS Remastered recently) which is very admirable...
  15. Suppose he doesn't have much else to do. Let' see ... TNG, Stand by Me ... what else did he do? Oh yeah, nothing. L L L L L L L L L L L L L L L L The Yar Yar Binks of the Star Trek Universe indeed! lol
