    I know (although voyager wasn't destroyed, there was tech left behind during a mission and the EMH's backup file was one of those things.That setup gave the writers a great way to do a mirror version of the crew without actually having to set it in the mirror universe and explain the delta quadrant conundrum. The fake versions of the characters are how I'd expect their mirror universe counterparts to behave.

    Zoran, you would need a lot more than pain killers to stand my singing. It could be used as a weapon to defeat the Klingon Empire that's how bad it is and I'm sure you heard Klingon's sing

    Nowadays, they have Autotune.

    BTW, do you suppose that by the 23rd Century they could do the same for my face? What people would see would be an "tuned-up" version of the sad truth ...

    Is it that bad? Anyway, as far as I'm concerned, true beauty comes from the inside, as we all saw in "Is There in Truth No Beauty?"
    (Yes, I'm in full trek philosophy mode right now...)

    I watched TOS episode with the dooms day machine in it last night, one of my all time favorite episodes. Made me remember how it was being a kid when at any moment the USA and Russia could start a nuclear war.

    The Dark One, you tend to appreciate life more when you know it could be over at any time.

    That's true, but what max tried to say was that in this episode the doomsday device the Enterprise encountered was a mass destruction weapon whose main reason was to keep the balance of power, and thus never was meant to be used, much like the atomic bomb of the USA and the USSR (the Soviet Union). It was, nevertheless, a time of uneasiness, which finally ended when the Soviet Union fell apart, and the Cold War ended. Today, the new challenge for the world is fighting Islamic terrorism, and even Russia is looking for old glory, thanks to a megalomaniac Vladimir Putin. A modern-day trek tv show surely would adress these themes nowadays.

    On the lighter side I just finished watching TOS The trouble with Tribbles. The only thing the tribbles threaten was Klingons. The Great Tribble War was a time when the Klingon Empire was almost destroyed by the terrible tribble invasion. It was only the Great Tribble hunt that saved them and started a great snack food- roasted tribble on a stick.

    I watched TOS the ultimate computer last night, another great episode-sort of like the movie War Games where to computer takes over but then realizes it is wrong and stops at the end.

    No worries! Sorry to "nerd out." I clearly have no life

    Thanks. I love that episode. It's kind of like that short story by James Thurber, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"
