Cool!

I can totally see JJ in that Best of Both Worlds scene when he tries to convince Worf how much of the Klingons are going to be changed.

Once again, no PC version equals no purchase for me. I know this is a platform specific app, but everything is moving away from the PC, or at least seems to be (yes there is STO and the upcoming DAC-mimic Infinite Space, but still).

Mikey, the original Yoostar is a PC version. I’m waiting for the price to drop…it’s fun (I have the PC version, which makes you fuss around with a huge green screen), but not worth the price they ask for it. It still has glitches that need fixed…if anyone could perfect this system, it would be great – but as you can see from the clips, it’s still very hard to get the lighting/ghosting just right.

BTW, it’s a lot more fun to improvise your own lines than to use the original words! :)

Is anyone else hoping we soon see Sheldon using this on the BBT?

6. Dr. Cheis - April 22, 2011

I wonder if you have to say “KHAAAAN” twice or if it repeats it for you?

7. Dr. Cheis - April 22, 2011

They don’t include the original music in the Gorn clip? LAAAAME

8. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - April 22, 2011

@5:

Yes. Me.

9. Trekman_Dave - April 23, 2011

@5 hell yes that would be great!

10. Mikey1091 - April 23, 2011

Wait…last I saw the original wasn’t a PC version. I looked. Maybe I didn’t see it.

11. Mikey1091 - April 23, 2011

Sorry for the double post, but when I said no PC version, I meant no PC version of Yoostar TWO. Yes, the original is PC, but two isn’t, THAT’S what I’m annoyed with. Plus the fact that second one has Trek stuff but the first one…well…doesn’t as far a I can tell. Hence why you can see that I’m a little peeved. Now if I actually HAD an xbox 360 or PS3, then I wouldn’t be complaining, but I don’t like those systems in the first place, which is the whole reason I don’t have either of them.

This is the problem with technology in the commercial age. They release it when it’s not perfected. Could you imagine if Transporters were invented and the technology was available to buy at the same level as this “Yoostar”. We’d be all pixilated around the edges after transport, wearing the wrong clothes, and acting as if we wanted to there, but not really.

This has all the charm of other peoples kids and pets.
But,. for BBT, sure…

14. MJ - April 23, 2011

Given TNG ended like 17 years ago what is the point of this? The would be like Trivial Pursuit re-releasing the 1980’s edition this year. Snore!!!
