Kurtzman is still there, inspiring negative confidence in the future of Trek.

It's amazing having so many Trek series on the air after so many years of absolutely nothing.

Is there no new creative blood available?

Too bad they're not worth watching. :lol:

I'm sure there is, but this is business, not art.

It could be, but unfortunately it's not enough for these companies to just make money-- they must make obscene amounts of money.

I didn't find the article that you mentioned, but I found a live interview with Patrick Stewart and John de Lancie, and an article about season two. This is great news. Also, I noticed that Brent Spiner is listed in the cast of season two. Probably making an appearance as Dr Soong.

That's awful. It seems like there are a lot of people dying at a very young age lately.

Alas, the leading cause of death is life. It does seem like way too many young people are dying these days :no:

She's absolutely right. Spock was always the straw man to prove that chaotic human emotions are better than rationalism-- as well as the objective outsider. Personally, I would have preferred that rationalism got a little more respect. :lol:

Turns Out, Spock Is Kinda Bad at Logic
This had me cackling:

Not only does Spock have a terrible track record—events he describes as “impossible” happen 83 percent of the time—but his confidence level is actually anti-correlated with reality. “The more confident he says he is that something will happen—that the ship will crash, or that they will find survivors—the less likely it is to happen, and the less confident he is in something, the more likely it is to happen,” Galef says.

You're right. All the anti-maskers and anti-science people can point to Spock's miserable track record as proof that gut and intuition are superior to reason.

Well, we can counter with that time that Spock went off his noodle when he forgot to wear his mask. :lol:

Oh yeah. Was that when he was blinded by the light and his spare eyelid saved him?

I'm thinking about the time that he looked at the Medusan without the special goggles. :loopy:

Aw, the poor guy. I know he had Alzheimer's. Seventy-five is not that old these days. :(

I think I'll refrain from mentioning this to emma.
