Unlike the Holodecks, TeeVees have these neat boxes that come with them that can CHANGE the CHANNEL, or even turn the damned things OFF. I guess someone too stupid to use one wouldn't be able to read enough posts here to see no one blindly likes everything on the show or mindlessly accepts whatever Paramount slaps the Trek label on. Well, almost no one. 8-) And I know it's politically trendy to lambaste TOS for the massive amount of T & A, or for criticise TNG because they could never get their holodecks to work right, were always getting caught in some space-timefoolery or another... Well, who the hell cares? I liked it, even when LMAO at the silly pseudo-pscience, or yelling "Hey Chrome-Dome, ever think of flying AROUND the Dangerous Whirly Thing?!?" Some people spend their lives fixated on what they loathe. Some people prefer to spend their attention on what they love. Some people just want to have fun, some people think they're on a mission to step on other people's fun. Of course to them, since I don't have their same tastes and opinions that just reassures them that I'm some trekkie geek who's opinion is worthless, since it isn't theirs. Which kind of mirrors my opinion of them, except that mine is based on their desperation to convince us we're wasting our time watching a TeeVee show they don't like... that, and the way they're so desperate for attention/validation that they post the same damn drivel several times a day. The next [plonk] you hear may be your own. 8-) Z "Zathras can never have nice things." * Sent from RemarQ http://www.remarq.com The Internet's Discussion Network * The fastest and easiest way to search and participate in Usenet - Free!

Speaking as a pretty big fan of Voyager ... the current show has equaled, if not surpassed, TNG's use of broken holodecks and space-time fooling around. I think DS9 has a *slightly* better record than these two, but not for lack of trying. > Well, who the hell cares?

Robert Hutchinson No offense meant to those who hate it and still watch it, but I cannot fathom the reasoning.

If you count the wormhole, then DS9 would indeed win the spatial anomaly count... but since it's repeated appearances of the same anomaly... > > Well, who the hell cares?

Well, I did mean offense to those two brats with nothing better to do but bitch repeatedly, every day, about how much they hate people who watch a TV show. Glad I don't have to pay their shrink's bill. 8-) Z "Zathras can never have nice things." * Sent from RemarQ http://www.remarq.com The Internet's Discussion Network * The fastest and easiest way to search and participate in Usenet - Free!
