A lot of fun.

2. Joe - July 14, 2011

I just love how Star Trek is getting a lot of attention.

3. rm10019 - July 15, 2011

Interesting phaser in the Who Killed Captain Kirk header. Sort of a ST III/TOS combo thing…

4. gump - July 15, 2011

I’m a lifelong Trek fan, but some of this is just a little strange.

5. Lord John of Izar - July 15, 2011

Lesbians in the park!

(I think I’ll pass)

6. FACTCHECKER - July 15, 2011

Agreed #5 – I’ll pass as well….I’d prefer to watch 60s masculine Kirk kick a$$ and take names any day of the week than some kind of John Waters version.

7. Sarah - July 15, 2011

Star Trek is getting a lot of good attention, but sometimes anything needs a “dial-down”. Musicals?

8. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - July 15, 2011

Why do all of these things happen everywhere except where I live? Trek fans seem to avoid California for some reason…

9. Red Dead Ryan - July 15, 2011

#8.

That’s funny, because everybody else complains about the “Star Trek Exhibit” hardly ever leaving California… ;-)

10. MJ - July 15, 2011

BTW, Rick Berman killed Captain Kirk, with William Shatner collecting the paycheck…cha-ching!

11. MJ - July 16, 2011

@9. Yea, for years all those ST exhibits were here in California and we made jokes about it. I guess “Let Them East Plomeek Soup” must have just recently moved here?

12. MJ - July 16, 2011

@5 “Lesbians in the park! (I think I’ll pass)”

Unless they are really hot ones, holding hands and wearing halter tops! ;-)

13. Jack - July 16, 2011

4-7. way to show the idic, guys.

14. Amorican - July 16, 2011

Obviously lesbian trekkies are obviously lesbians.

15. Keachick (rose pinenut) - July 18, 2011

It is known that in Shakespeare’s time, females were not allowed to appear on stage at all so all the female roles were played by young boys before they broke their voices or by male castrates. I don’t know when women and girls were allowed to play themselves but it was a while later. So I guess everyone was going to see a lot of “gay boys” playing Hamlet etc? Wrong – they were watching a play where all the characters (male and female) were played by males.

And people here seem to be bothered by girls playing the parts of Kirk and Spock. What makes you think that these females are lesbians anyway? Beyond stupid!

16. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - July 19, 2011

@11:

No, I’m just new to this stuff, that’s all. Actually, I’ve been here for a really long time.
