and the look on kirk's face when he realizes what is going on

What about the nerd complaint that this is all a cheat, as Kirk & Spock have already set up their little code thing and Kirk, Marcus etc are in no danger?

I haven't seen it in at least 5 years, so I'm just repeating conventional "wisdom."

Khan rocks the Signet Classics.

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 13 December 2007 16:51 (twelve years ago) link

i have to see khan again but i have a soft spot for star trek vi, when kirk and mccoy are sent to that slave labor colony and he gets it on with the shapeshifter chick and then kills her. also the chick from sex in the city is spock's vulcan intern, right?

Jordan, Thursday, 13 December 2007 17:42 (twelve years ago) link

yes. star trek 6 is the next best one.

Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature;
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your sub-vocal oscillations,
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents,
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

Oh Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array;
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

maybe i'll watch wrath of khan today.

George: What were you saying to the Rosses over there, anyway?

Jerry: Oh, I don't know. I told them her death takes place in the shadow of new life. She's not really dead if we find a way to remember her.

George: What is that?

Jerry: Star Trek II.

George: (identifying it) Wrath of Khan!

Jerry: Right. Kramer and I saw it last night. Spock dies, they wrap him up in a towel, and they shoot him out the bowel of the ship in that big sunglasses case.

George: That was a hell of a thing when Spock died...

Jerry: Yeah...

[For a brief moment, the two become overwhelmed with emotion.]

Stan: Right as Jesus was dying he raised his hand and said, "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."

Randy: You're right, Stanley. You're absolutely right. Hey, that Bible sounds like kind of a good book.

Stan: It ain't bad. You should try reading it some time.

Kyle: Dude, that was "Star Trek" again! "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" — that was Wrath of Khan!

UGH

"assignment earth" is terrible. no wonder they never made a gary seven show.

**The huge hand keeping the Enterprise from moving in the beginning of this episode is, in fact, Gene Roddenberry's.

In Peter David's Star Trek: New Frontier, character Mark McHenry is a descendant of the child of Apollo and Carolyn Palamas (revealed to have been impregnated during the events of this episode), and has at least some of the Apollo's powers.

Hell, I keep forgetting where they got that exchange from. I've heard the "it ain't bad..." bit like once or twice before.

I wonder how many of Shatner's 3 Star Trek memoirs are owned by ian

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 20 December 2007 21:01 (eleven years ago) link

and what is right, wrath of khan really is the best movie ever.

J.D., Friday, 21 December 2007 02:18 (eleven years ago) link

i was thinking this morning about the episode where kirk fights the guy (trelane? i think that was it) who seems ridiculously menacing and all-powerful but in the end turns out to be a spoiled kid from some Q-like omnipotent race. the way kirk intimidates him in the last scene, before he's even learned the "secret" ("you've got a lot to learn about living...in fact, you've gotta lot to learn about EVERYTHING, haven't you?") is fucking awesome.

J.D., Friday, 21 December 2007 02:21 (eleven years ago) link

That'd be "The Squire of Gothos," featuring one William Campbell as Trelane, who also played a Klingon on "The Trouble With Tribbles."

James Redd and the Blecchs, Friday, 21 December 2007 04:42 (eleven years ago) link

"You will hang by the neck, Captain, until you are dead, dead, dead!"

James Redd and the Blecchs, Friday, 21 December 2007 04:47 (eleven years ago) link

Also had a great ending where he dissolves from sight as he is taken back by his alien parents while repeating "I would've won, I WOULD have," reminiscent of the same kind of ending to "Charlie X," with Charlie last words before fading being "I wanna stay...stay...stay."

James Redd and the Blecchs, Friday, 21 December 2007 04:51 (eleven years ago) link

"why all the . . . mumbojumbo?"

mookieproof, Friday, 21 December 2007 06:42 (eleven years ago) link

My dad knew William Campbell as a youth in Newark, NJ. (He's also the star of Francis Coppola's first film.)

four weeks pass...

watching the original series in order here: http://www.cbs.com/classics/star_trek/video/video.php. have maybe seen 10% of these.

s01e01 - The Man Trap (hairy salt monster)
Uhura flirting with Spock was good. Kirk excellent. Leonard Nimoy pretty handsome back then. Moral: remember what happened to the the buffalo. 6/10.

s01e02 - Charlie X (weird kid with telekenetic powers)

Charlie's face when using powers is excellent. Kirk removes shirt for first time. Uhura's singing voice is hilarious (and hot). 6/10.

saw really bad star wars

am0n, Tuesday, 27 December 2016 22:25 (two years ago) link

Today I saw the one where Spock falls in love and hangs upside down from a tree branch. Sweet.

yeah that was on after the shuttle one

Rock Wokeman (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 27 December 2016 23:39 (two years ago) link

Falls in love with Charles Bronson's wife but Kirk ruins it, though, in doing so, he saves us from more of McCoy wandering about making mint juleps and saying y'all.

Eats like Elvis, shits like De Niro (Tom D.), Tuesday, 27 December 2016 23:49 (two years ago) link

McCoy is such a racist douche. This is the one with the exploding poppies, right?

Rock Wokeman (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 27 December 2016 23:51 (two years ago) link

Indeed, though it's Kirk who chucks a lot of inane racist insults at Spock in order to get him angry enough to overcome the deleterious effects of being in love and happy.

Eats like Elvis, shits like De Niro (Tom D.), Tuesday, 27 December 2016 23:55 (two years ago) link

in the 23rd century all the nations on Earth have overcome their differences and come together to be virulently racist against Vulcans

Rock Wokeman (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 28 December 2016 00:02 (two years ago) link

two years pass...

Classic episode was just on: Good Kirk/Evil Kirk. The combined scientific and medical knowledge of Spock and Bones insufficient to work out that the way you distinguish between the two is Evil Kirk wears more eyeliner. Warp factor scenery chewing from Shatner.
