  1. Not me. I only did "Hour by Hour".
  2. Last night being the end of the year, I went to Youtube to check out TCM's annual tribute to the movie celebrities who died in 2016. That led me to other celebrity tribute videos, and I came across the death of Barry Jenner. Not a name I would have recognized. Nor a face -- at least not in the picture they had of him as an old man. But on the wall behind him was a very large picture of him as Admiral Ross (DS9). Admiral Ross dead! Of course, everyone knows when one of the really big names in Star Trek dies, but I find the deaths of the lesser-known names interesting, too (like last year, when I stumbled across the news that Grace Lee Whitney -- Janice Rand, TOS -- had died). Some of the 2016 names are lesser-known only as Trek actors -- well known otherwise -- and I had heard of their deaths but forgotten that they had had roles in Star Trek. StarTrek.com has a list, and I assume that they covered everyone. Of note to me, aside from Barry Jenner, were: Don Marshall, who played Lt. Boma in The Galileo Seven (TOS); Fritz Weaver, who played Conservator Kovat in Tribunal (DS9) -- and it's only now that I see a picture of him without the make-up that I recognize him; Ron Glass, most famous for his role in Barney Miller, who played Loken in Nightingale (VOY); William Schallert, whom I had forgotten had played Nilz Barris in The Trouble with Tribbles (TOS); Richard Libertini, who played a rival Emissary of the Prophets, Akorem Laan, in Accession (DS9).
  3. Too late for Christmas, but Happy New Year to all.
  4. Greetings, Martok. The short answer is that it doesn't. At all, really. I haven't seen the new movies, and don't intend to. No one I know is a fan, so I don't have anyone to talk to about it (and, anyway, there isn't much left to say). I did re-watch a lot of DS9 last year (or was it the year before?), but I re-watched several old tv series at the time.
  5. Just remembered that it was some time this month and decided to drop by and see when it was. Sept. 8, eh? I figured I'd missed it, and I did. And nobody posted about it, either. How far we have fallen.
  6. This being Canada Day, I thought it appropriate to post this topic today, instead of yesterday, when I stumbled across the very large Star Trek display at the postal outlet. 50th Anniversary? Showing how out of touch with Trek I am these days, I hadn't even realized that we were approaching it. (Though, it does explain why there were not one but two unrelated Star Trek books in the small display of books at the front of the drugstore -- which, at the time, I thought was highly unusual.) In any case, Canada Post seems to have gone all out and really done a good job. (I, uh, looked at the thread which shows the USPS 50th Anniversary stamps....) The basic stamps include Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, the Enterprise, a D-7 Battlecruiser and one more... There are also lenticular stamps and posters (cool), collector booklets, coins (not well done, IMO), postcards, a blog, a Youtube channel.... Here is the main page.
  7. Quark! Another ale!
  8. Quark! Another Breshtanti ale here!
  9. Yeah, I'm sort of a blank there. Happenstance and nostalgia. I noticed the bookmark while I was looking for something else.
  10. Greetings. Quark! Breshtanti ale all around!
  11. Another belated one here, too. Happy birthday.
  12. Doris Atkins seemed nice. Colt had obvious appeal. (Never cared for Rand.)
  13. I've seen everything except the animated series and Stargate: Universe. EDIT: Oops. Forgot that, although I did see a fair portion of it, I couldn't stand to watch all of SGA's "Vegas".
  14. Of the live-action series, I've seen every episode except DS9's Rejoined. (I haven't seen the new movie, either.) It's certainly possible, perhaps even probable, that I've seen all of TAS, too, as I do remember watching it when I was a boy, but it was too long ago to be sure now.
  15. Merry Christmas.
  16. Merry Christmas to all. "God bless us, every one!"
  17. Mind Invaders (originally published in 1989 as The Archon Conspiracy) by Dave Hunt "THE COLD WAR FOR PSYCHIC DOMINION HEATS UP" I have never seen the movie Contact (1997), with Jodie Foster, but I did see the promos, and I thought of it immediately upon starting this book. No doubt, the title of the first chapter, "Contact!", helped. But there was also the chair and its use in attempting to contact highly-evolved alien intelligences. After reading the IMDb synopsis of the movie, I can say that Mind Invaders takes a much different tack. "Contact!" is, after all, only the first chapter. Who are these aliens? What do they want? Can they be trusted? The destiny of the human race and the destinies of souls are at stake! Recommended for those who have enjoyed the Left Behind books (which I haven't read) or movies (which I have seen), since Hunt also writes from a Christian POV.
  18. Merry Christmas.
  19. Congratulations.
  20. Belatedly, ditto.
  21. Sad to hear. RIP.
  22. Happy birthday.
  23. A belated Happy Birthday to you, Karma.
  24. A belated Happy Birthday to you, Helburn.
  25. One of the great ones. RIP
