Wow. the article you pulled that image out of reminds me of Star Trek fans arguing on bulletin boards about the the finer points of Trek Canon and attempting to resolve plot holes that happen when many different writers write many different (contradictory) things over a large period of time.
It’s just that simple, isn’t it? The bible is the highest selling science fiction / fantasy novel of all time and churches are the largest scale scifi conventions of all time. Preachers are the guys who dress up like klingons, speak only in klingon, and constantly remind everybody else how much encyclopedic knowledge they have about trek while arguing with each other about how wrong the others are, and the rest are the aspiring fans that are wrestling with the fact that Warp 10 in old trek means something different than Warp 10 in new trek and that klingons didn’t have bumpy heads until the movies…
Who was criticizing star trek? I heart the trek. My post was in no way a criticism of trekkers or trekdom. They know the object of their affection is fiction and would probably laugh and nod while reading my analogy. Kicking teeth out? Huh? I’m not getting your drift.
What is FFM? … I’m assuming you don’t mean the “threesome” abbreviation. Or maybe you do. That would probably be a pretty nice pipeline to satisfaction.
And last… Who said this was a free country anymore? Canada has officially declared the USA as NOT a safe haven and appeals to Canada for asylum is now allowed even if a USA court turns down an asylum case in the USA (previously they wouldn’t see each other’s denials in a political agreement which saved each other’s court systems from redundancy). That’s pretty profound, if you ask me.
I long for the days when the FISA court was controversial instead of being the “ideal” nostalgic scenario with secret spying as the norm…
