Sci Fi

Taken

By popular request - here's a place to discuss your favourite Sci Fi stuff. (Can anyone think of a better word than "stuff"?)

Taken

Postby Kay » Mon 27 Oct 2003 19:56 GMT

Anyone watching Taken? We first discovered it a few months ago in Thailand and now it's being shown here in India. We're up to episode 3, and so far so good. But there again, we thought Farscape got off to a good start and just crumbled.

Oh well, thanks for the attention, Not-Lorna. :P But why not go and do something useful like moderating your board? :twisted:

Actually I really like when people ignore me, particularly the PM function - it generally runs at over 90% capacity, and I probably don't get half the stuff people send me anyway. :idea:

And for the really twisted among you, Squiffs, that's not an invitation. :roll:

I would never ignore our Captain... :D I'd be drummed out of Starfleet and find myself scrubbing out plasma conduits on a cargo cruiser if I did... :wink:

I just haven't seen it... :(

Strat, go and scrub out some plasma conduits. :roll: :lol:

DO IT!

OK, I'll be Janeway as long as I can substitute her addiction to coffee for anything with alcohol in it. Coffee is nice but it makes me a bit twitchy.

What I really want to know is, who are you, Strat? Hmmm.

Too smart too be Kirk, maybe Ryker? Yessssss, (my preciousssss).

C'mon folks, help me out. Who does Strat most resemble in Star Trek?

Aha! Got it. I don't know who you are but I think you'd like to be Q!

Kay :twisted:

Make it so.

Q? He's the pest of the galaxy... :roll:

Actually, I think I'm closer to Archer than Kirk. At least, I'd like to be, then I would be closer to T'Pol... :shock:

Make it a good one!!!

Go for it!

(Hoping you've not sneakily posted in the meantime so this is the 10,000th :shock: )

Capt. Archer is the captain of the first Starship Enterprise (from the new series "Enterprise" which, as far as I'm concerned, is the best one since the original). Charming, bold, a born explorer. Archer is guided by a core of human decency and intuition, even when they contravene direct orders. He is independent, yet has a strong sense of duty. It's set a couple of hundred years before the days of Kirk so everything is still new and comparetively primitive (eg the transporter is seldom used for people). It's got a great cast of regulars (I'm particularly fond of the Denobulan, Dr. Phlox; Dr. Phlox is a congenial fellow who balances an oblique sense of humor and a happy disposition, along with a natural scientific curiosity that retains a sense of humanity.). Sub-Commander T'Pol is the Vulcan Science Officer and she makes 7 of 9 look like a beach bimbo.

The first season was good, the second season was great and the new season is outstanding. It just keeps getting better...

Wow! It sounds great but I didn't even know it existed. I hope it comes to India soon. They were running Voyager every night but recently stopped - maybe they'll replace it with Enterprise. Hope so!!!!

Why can't you do both and just go Irish?!

Rats - something else we don't get in Fiji. The nearest thing we get to SF here is Smallville. Oh yes, we also had a series of The Invisible Man.

When you said, "Makes 7 of 9 look like a beach bimbo," is that good or bad?

Best wishes

Sorry for seeming to ignore you cap'n Janeway, but as i haven't seen the series, Taken, i couldn't respond. Can you give us a bit of background on it?
I had started to watch Explorer, but my work schedule got in the way, and now when i do get the chance to see it i have no idea what is going on...

7of 9...the actress that played her is now on some other show...playing a cop or lawyer or something like that...i've not seen the show, but the ads show her.

That's right, 7 of 9 (aka Jeri Ryan) is now a member of the cast of Boston Public, as a teacher in an inner city school (having given up a lucrative law practice to dedicate herself to the deprived teenagers of Boston). Trouble is that she's essentially the same character, only without the Borg implants... :roll:
