Hi TB, I've not been around much lately so not had a chance to reply to some topics. I'll post some things I noticed about XI then get back to you later. :)

What was Winona Kirk, Jim's mother pregnant with him, doing on the Kelvin?

It's a good question, but to be honest we could come up with a dozen reasons.

I thought the Kobayashi Maru scene could have been better written. How James T. Kirk pulled it off should have been more covert. In the previous unfolding of the timeline he was praised for his ingenuity. What was McCoy doing being, what, the navagator?


I wasn't too sure about it the first time, but I do like it now, and Kirk eating the apple was a great nod to the Genesis cave scene from TWOK. To be fair we could ask why the Enterprise command crew was present during the test in TWOK too, put it down to "dramatising" the scene.

Spock's mother died. The rock face falling away was the reasoning, but what's the point of a transporter lock?

Interference from the drill.

I am anxious for the DVD. I have to see this movie at least two more times. Any Trek fan, especially fans of the 60s Star Trek, who fails to see this movie on the big screen is only cheating themselves...


It's stunning on Blu-Ray.

I've just finished watching XI again and it's fast becoming my favourite movie, probably still just behind TWOK and maybe FC.

Do you have links for those series Bax, are they free to watch?

Cheers TB.

Had a quick look at Phase II, kinda cheesy but could be Ok. I'm gonna watch them next chance I get.
