Re: The Silencer and bra strap !

I am told this is a true story:

Customer: Got any rubber plants?
Assistant: (Confused) Rubber plants???
Customer: Yes, rubber plants.
Assistant: (Dazed) This is a music shop.
Customer: Yes, I know. Rubber plants, he's one of Led Zeppelin....

10 songs done for next album- one more probably being discarded.

Re: The Silencer and bra strap !

I just finished watching the final episode of Star Trek TNG. The quality of the episodes goes up and down,  but I enjoyed it.  I have ordered the first season of DS9.....  was that a mistake?

Anyway,  I'm ordering a Coke Zero with ice to celebrate. Make it so!

Re: The Silencer and bra strap !

I never could get into DS9- I've tried, but it just doesn't grab me the way the other series do. Some individual episodes I've enjoyed ("Our Man Bashir" obviously one of them), though.

Also a true story (apparently) but it works better spoken out loud.

In an exclusive coffee shop:
Customer: How much is a slice of that gattox (gateaux)
Assistant: Do you mean gatto?
Customer: How much is a slice of that gatto?
Assistant £ 4.99 a slice
Customer: Bollo to that.

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

One Coke Zero. 24.

Deep Space Nine is Star Trek's novel as a series, like Babylon 5 or it's narrative successor Battllestar Galactica (2004).  Its not all happy and bright like TOS, its not neat and tidy like TNG. It asks difficult questions and the chaeacters are not saints. If you stick with it though, it becomes the most rounded, and certainly the best written of all the Trek series overall. Though season's 1 and 2 can be a bit slow in places.
Characters to watch carefully over time - Commander Sisko, Major Kira, Odo, Quark, Dr Bashir, and later on reoccuring characters Garak, General Martok and Vedek Winn!

Welcome to the planet Bajor. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Right, I have a bottle count to do.  ajb007/rolleyes

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

You know far more about it than I do, TB2! Are you looking forward to the new series "Discovery"?

I'm incredibly ambivilant to tell the truth. I love TOS through to VGR, and there are some good stories in ENT. But since the film Nemesis, the quality of Trek has gone down the pan. Esp the Abrahms films. I still haven't seen Beyond, I was so annoyed at the trite nonsense of Into Darkness. - Even the film titles are meaningless!

  Re Discovery, I'll give it a go, but whether I like it or hate it, it will be completely divorced from any form of exisitng Trek for me, because stylistically and narratively its very different.  I consider the fact its yet another bloddy prequel a serious point against it too. We will see.

Re: The Silencer and bra strap !

I basically agree, and haven't seen Beyond yet either.

I'm not knocking DS9, there is something there that I'm not getting. VGR was very much hit & miss, and ENT was cut short so never realised its true potential.

I'm happy to give the new series a go, but am dreading the prospect of seeing the same stories we've seen before with a new cast & setting.

I look forward to Discovery.  I hope they will be able to think even more outside the box in this one. Did you know Michelle Yeoh will play a starship Captain,  but not of the Discovery?
