Re: Last Television Show Watched

Yes, especially during the writer's strike during the second season (when they had to resort to polishing up old Star Trek: Phase II scripts), but they're sprinkled throughout... I didn't realize a writer's strike had affected things. Yes, it was the '88 Writers Guild of America strike. The episode...

Re: What's the last book you read?

RMS Olympic: Titanic's Sister (second edition) by Mark Chirnside. I've been an Olympic -class buff for nearly 30 years and the second edition of Chirnside's book about the eldest of the three ships of the Olympic-class ( Olympic , Titanic and Britannic ) was a good primer.

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

Yes, but the last episode isn't fully canon (well, at least not in the Kelvinverse). Otherwise, I agree. I don't think Enterprise was that bad. And I do like the first version of the theme song (the second is awful). I'm considering picking up the Enterprise box set at some point when its at a dece...

Re: Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace

I found a quote from Kasdan in an old issue of Empire (#122) confirming he was asked: When he asked me to write the new one, I turned him down. I can't wait to see it though. I'm like everyone else.

I'd guess they're going for the more Western vibe with red, so power, anger/rage, violence, etc.
