All captains need a ready room..Imagine what would sound more official ? "Ensign Kate McCoy report to my quarters" OR "Ensign Kate McCoy REPORT to my ready room." see, which one would you respond too ?

It would Depend on The Captain... If it was Kirk on the Original Rnterprise I wouldn't mine reporting to His Quters.... but if it Was Picard I'd want to reprt to His Ready room.....

Ah yes, you are indeed a female,"A Rose by any other name,would smell as sweet".Yes , Shatner was the first Captain, but did you know about those silly albums and songs he puts out ? like "Rocket Man" His Album "Hasbeen" and his latest album is about Major tom from a David Bowie song, at LEAST Avery Brooks sings better than him.

That's your opinion. I personally think he had his moments in both directions of good and bad.

Dose it matter if they are silly or that he can't sing....... It's called Having Fun... If Avery didn't like how Shatner treats him then he should sue Shatner

'Nuff said. Avery may have the the more noble proffesion as educator and more 'training' as an actor, but Shatner's got everything else that usually matters in show business, from name recognition, to fans. Besides, Avery wouldn't be a good nemesis to Bill cause he wouldn't get the joke. Takei and Carrie Fisher do get it's all about the attention for Shater and play along. Just look at Takei at Shatner's Roast, he was brilliant. 


Shatner does these things to self-promote himself, and usually they are indeed very entertaining. Kind of like Michael Jackson, I think he knows he's created this image of himself and constantly fuels it with these name's like his new Broadway show "Shatner's World". Trick is to not take it seriously...I sure don't. He's a funny guy despite any shortcomming we may think he has.

Your right... I think TOS was more of A Fun and Joking show than DS9 ever was So that'd make sense...

I think it's safe to say Sisko was the most serious of all the captains. Granted he had a war to fight, but even before it he had this serious demeanor that even Picard shed after a while.

I think Brooks is slightly off his rocker, making it even more inappropriate for Shatner to insult him.
