  1. Happy Birthday, Jack!

  2. Melville wasn't influenced by the notebook. It wasn't found until much later. Melville apparently based Moby Dick on the sinking of the Essex, which did happen. This movie is based on another account of that event (from the perspective of this cabin boy).
  3. Perhaps it's not worded completely correctly but what they're saying is true. In the Heart of the Sea is about the sinking of the Essex in 1819. It's told from the perspective of the cabin boy Thomas Nickerson (who was 14 at the time). Apparently the notebook he wrote while on board was found in 1960 and that's what the book was based on. Additionally, the first mate of the Essex, Owen Chase, also wrote an account of the sinking of the Essex called "Narrative of the Most Extraordinary and Distressing Shipwreck of the Whale-Ship Essex". This was published in 1821 and inspired Herman Melville to write Moby Dick in 1851. So basically, this movie is about the true event on which Moby Dick was based. Don't know why I went to all this trouble. I really have no interest in seeing this. Based loosely on it.....maybe. Still doesn't explain why Hollywood produces one ripoff and remake after another. Its their money to throw to the wind, i guess. I just know better than to throw any of mine in the direction of a film that's claim to fame is based on an alleged notebook found more than a century after Melville wrote one of the greastest pieces of literature. Its sad that talents like Melville, Shakespeare and others have become the victim of detractors of low intellect that create theories based on sporadic pieces of 'evidence' and on the speculations of the unitiated. Anyways, this new film = Mega epic fail. The notebook was authenticated by experts and the sinking of the Essex is an actual historical event, which did inspire Moby Dick. I'm not saying you have to see the movie or even that it will be any good. I'm just saying they're not lying when they make the association to Moby Dick. They're making the association to tie it to an existing brand but they're not incorrect in doing so, at least from a factual perspective.
  4. His role on Enterprise was never intended to be long-term. It was always going to be the three episode arc.
  5. Two. Studio 6o on the Sunset Strip (which deserved a far better fate) and Mr. Sunshine (which wasn't great but not awful). I have to imagine this will meet a similar fate not because of Perry, but because it's on NBC and the premise seems somewhat limited (it would probably make a better movie).

  7. They kept the right Abrams show though.
  8. He has retired from any on-screen appearances. He's only done voice over work since Star Trek (2009) (i.e. his final episode of Fringe, Transformers Dark of the Moon) and this appearance on The Big Bang Theory is more of the same.
  9. Well it looks like you did. They are all gone now Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
  10. Yeah, I think you're right. Looks like about 102 new members in the last week and by all indications they are probably bots (i.e. every one I've looked at has a country listed under Favourite Star Trek series). I'll let VBG know.
  11. They already did. Most of the shots of Vulcan in Star Trek (2009) were shot at Vasquez Rocks.
  12. So frigging psyched about this news! Cumberbatch is a fantastic actor and is great as Sherlock. Seriously, check that show out if you have the chance.
  13. Bradley Cooper is an A-List star.
  14. This has been a given for sometime now. Oh well, we've waited longer.
  15. Thought I might as well update my numbers (it has been five years) TOS 80/80 TNG 174/178 DS9 160/176 VGR 171/172 ENT 98/98 Total: 683/704 = 97.02%
