    And let us not forget the forgotten Bally/Midway spinoff, Professor Pac-Man! (Oh, and… Kick Man!)

    ‘Twould be awesome indeed. And even awesomer would be to do that with David Cronenberg.

    My friend sent me this a few days ago. I couldn’t believe it, it blew me away. Extremely period accurate. All that was missing was the ad nauseum pterodactyl screech loop™.

    Also, you go right on ahead and keep posting pics of Season 2 Troi, which I regard as peak Troi.

    Yep, my first thought was, why no Wesley? Or are they saving him as a surprise? Still, it will be interesting to have the seven main cast members back.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I’m all about Argyle. Put the spotlight on him and give that guy his own series. That is the hill I will die on.

    And now The Orville will have a good deal of overlap with Strange New Worlds.

    I can’t say how much I truly adore this show. I see my initial skepticism from earlier in this thread a few years ago and I can’t believe it. I just love this show with all my heart. Anbo jitsu represent!

    Yep, in Encounter at Farpoint, in the post-apocalyptic courtroom where Picard recognized the court system as the one that agreed with that line from Shakespeare, “kill all the lawyers,” we can surmise that they also said, “why don’t we get rid of OSHA while we’re at it.”

    I watched “Life Line” the other night (where the EMH is emailed to Jupiter Station to help save Dr. Zimmerman). I do love Bob Picardo, but dear God, watching him have an apoplectic shouting match with himself was supremely grating. But the one good part of that episode was Haley the Hologram, who has captured the top spot in my heart for number one Trek crush, tied with Andrea the Android. Rowrf!

    EDIT: And Lynne Lucero! Alliteration represent!

    OK. So something that really melts my brain in this show (and I’m sure all Star Trek series are guilty of this — I’m looking at you, The Naked Time) is how casually, cavalierly the crew will touch stuff with their bare hands. Stuff that should not be touched without gloves. They do have gloves, right? Spock wore them in Star Trek II. Anyway, I recently watched the episode “Live Fast and Prosper.” Near the beginning of the episode, B’elanna is removing a faulty power/energy cell (which Neelix had acquired in a shady trade) with nasty, acidic, alien gunk all over it… with her BARE HANDS. Seriously?? Are you kidding me?? What’s the deal? Here’s a nice pic:

    bare hands

    I never really used to think about this stuff when I watched these shows back then. But now it just blows my mind. What truly, absolutely leaves be flabbergasted, however, is their refusal to don environmental suits when the situation calls for it, which is pretty much every away mission ever, really. But the absurdity truly reached new heights (depths?) in the episode “Juggernaut”, in which B’elanna (what is it with her?) beams on over to a Malon freighter filled with noxious, radioactive fumes… WITH NO PROTECTIVE SUIT. Sure, The Doctor gave her an inoculation against the radiation, but she’s still choking on the vaporous fumes. By all rights, she should be DEAD. Unreal.

    Indeed, he smacked all the words right out of them.
