    Pretty much, that and reprograming stuff. On Voyager they reprogrammed so many systems so many times one wonders how they can make sense of anything, or how the ship still runs. I mean, you'd think there would be some systems that would cause a fatal failure if reprogramed.

    Nope, Voyager's the one with a woman captain and a black vulcan.

    Edit: Wait, did you meant Spot as in a joke on Spock's name or the actual Mr. Spot, i.e Data's Cat ? 'Cause they're from two different series that also aren't Voyager.

    On voyager they'd just use the delta flyer to go somewhere and do something* and things would be fixed.

    Ejecting the warp core would've worked, of course, but would've been more effective in TNG.


    * Doing something is not guaranteed, going by the number of episodes that just consist of faffing about.

    It will all be explained in the upcoming movie "Trekking Back To The 8th Dimension Wars".

    Mr. Spot, legendary Vulcan and retired as cat.

    The adventures of retired first officer and captain, Mr. Spot and Captain Smirk. I'd watch it.

    I'm fairly certain that's what exploration is all about.

    Nice clip Beren :) Can I change the topic from startrek now or is it going to continue endlessly :p - I'm not a hater btw I just haven't watched it in a while.

    being unemployed does have it's advantages for the moment, like being able to spend the day without wearing socks and getting to take naps. Oh! and spending more time at SP ;)

    I heard Barry Melrose on the radio this morning saying he thought the US was about bronze medal level. Looks pretty accurate.

    Not even that. Suomi won bronze.

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 1 minutes and 55 seconds later... ----------

    BTW No need to call me during the final. The door will not be answered, and thank your deity of choice for (legal)internet live feeds.

    I really would have liked a final between USA and Russia, but beggars can't be choosers.

    Heard that American lady who hit the post on the empty net with less than a minute to go just absolutely broke down in tears afterwards. Can't say I blame her.

    Ugh, sports everywhere I look. I'm so sick of people asking me if I saw whatever game happened to be on last night. Watching sports is another activity I will never understand. It's only marginally more interesting than watching grass grow, and it's a very small margin. Not to mention all the undeserved pride in people who happen to live in the same country as the winners. Oh, your country scored a goal? What exactly did your yelling at the TV contribute to that? Meh. :nolike:

    hahaha Keneth - actually I'm generally not into watching sports at all - Lots of other things I'd rather do. I haven't actually watched much of the olympic events but it is exciting that my country is doing so well and I am proud of Canada :) Since the weather here half of the year is so damn cold the least we can do is rock at winter sports :p
