  1. Sorry about that, I got so excitied, I forgot to copy'n paste the article.  If you all would like a link, you can find the article here. :frusty:



    Link changed to the direct article, not to his forum


    What's the difference between linking to Imagination Island and TrekBBS? There both message boards, and I'm not even competition. :frusty:

  2. My favorite is a tie between TNG and the movies, but in terms of best Star Trek, I don't believe it exists except within people's personal opinions. I think what is "best" will varry from person to person, and my reason for this is that each series and the movies all have something unique to offer.

  3. Does that sound like some raving druggie lunatic to you? :)

    Yes, she sounds like a druggie. She took workers off of necessary projects with a fake cover story to try to clear a path to the storage bay where the trellium was.

    If you're going to quote me, please do a complete quote. When she realised she was addicted, she seeked help from the ship's doctor. That is not the behavior of a druggie. :clap:


    As for not being a victim, she is - she's a victim of the Delphic Expanse

    The Delphic Expanse did not make her choose to take drugs.

    No, but the Delphic Expanse did expose her to emotions which is an overwelming experrience for a Vulcan and a catalyst for deterriorating self control. The Delphic Expanse is the catalyst for her addiction to Trellium D, under normal circumstanse she would not have become addicted. Oh, and another thing. She wasn't taking drugs, she was taking a single substance which allowed her to explore emotion and interract easier with the crew. At the time, she did not realise she had become addicted. She did not realise this untill she risked her life for the substance, and then she sought medical assistance.

  4. TUH, T'Pol was taking Trellium D via injections and told Dr. Phlox that she was not aware of being addicted till she almost got herself killed attempting to get more Trellium D. As soon as she realised she had an addiction, she fessed up to Dr. Phlox and sought treatment. Does that sound like some raving druggie lunatic to you? :) As for not being a victim, she is - she's a victim of the Delphic Expanse.

    That's where we disagree, though. I know that my course of action may have resulted in Earth getting blown up, but there's almost always a third alternative. They're running into ships out there all the time; it's not impossible to find one (even on impulse) that IS willing to trade. I'm almost certain that neither Picard nor Janeway would've done this, and they're the captains I respect the most. I'm not a subscriber to that Vulcan "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" philosophy. I can understand the decision; I just don't agree with it. Admittedly, though, no one here knows what they'd actually do without being in that situation.

    They had 3 days at Warp 3 to get to the Location Degra pointed them to. THey had no warp engines and the likelyhood of another ship coming along with an extra warp coil that would leave them with enough time to get to where they had to go was extremely unlikely. More then extremely unlikely. I would think it would be as unlikely as me going to the top of a large building jumping into the air and flying off to the moon.


    Archre sits and waits for another ship, Earth and billions of people die.


    Archer takes the Warp coil, gets to where he has to go and can save those billions of people.




    Tell me what other options he had?

    I have to agree with VBG.

    While Archer had no choice, but to steal the warp coil, I still disagree with his actions. Theft is wrong despite the reason, and that's what Archer did, he stole a warp coil. Fortunately, very few or maybe none of the aliens were killed in the heist. I believe Archer can right this wrong by giving the aliens a warp coil on their way back to Earth, or maybe even ask the Vulcans to ferry them home.



    Ultimately, I agree with Archer's actions, just not how he went about them.

  6. Everyone, I found out news on the 11th Star Trek movie.


    Rick Berman: "Prequel" Film in the Works, Plus Developing New Series With Braga

    By Steve Krutzler / 12:42, 22 April 2004 / General Star Trek



    After over a year of silence on the future of the STAR TREK feature film franchise, producer Rick Berman has finally dropped the first hints of a new theatrical project for the franchise. The news comes in the new issue of Dreamwatch magazine, just coming out in the UK.


    Speaking in issue #117, Berman confirms for the first time that he is now developing a STAR TREK feature film project: "I am involved in the very early stages of what could be the next STAR TREK movie," reveals Berman, in an excerpt provided by Dreamwatch. "It's something I will be producing with two other producers."


    Unwilling to offer many details he cryptically describes it as "a prequel" without any further elaboration. The names of his producing cohorts will have to remain unknown for now, as well. This follows a report earlier this week from Dark Horizons that Paramount may be working on a project the site described as "Starfleet Command." Coincidentially, former TREK producer Harve Bennett (STAR TREKs II-VI) revealed recently that several years ago he had pitched a Starfleet Academy-based STAR TREK movie concept.


    On the television front, while the future of their first series remains in limbo, Berman confirms that he is developing a non-STAR TREK sci-fi series with partner Brannon Braga. Both Berman and Braga have development deals with Paramount. If a new series begins development in earnest, TrekWeb insiders suggest Berman and/or Braga might take a reduced role in a fourth season of ENTERPRISE, though this is entirely speculation.


    For the full interview and much more, check out issue #117 of Dreamwatch magazine in the United Kingdom.

    When Archer pirated the alien ship's warp coil, I was absolutely furious. Then again, one must weigh matters. A planet vesus a space ship. Somehow, I think the planet is going to be more important. Hopefully, Archer will make an attempt to rights ome of is wrongs by giving the alien ship a warp coil on the way home. I think his decission to "steal" the warp coil was wrong, as I find stealing to be wrong, despite the reason. However, as many have said, he had no choice.

  8. How come the signature length is only 75 characters long now? It just gets shorter and shorter. Everyone knows my trademark signature is a quote accompanied by a picture from which changes every so often. Now I can barely get a full quote and can't even put the adress it self for a picture. <_<


    These people who feel the need to advertise have ruined signature fun for me. :P :(

    I think we could have done without T'Pol's shower scene though. That didn't add much to the story. That was a tough decision for Archer to make..It would be good if he can go back and render assisitance after the Xindi mission is over..

    What shower scene? <_<
