@ Sleepyhallow - but the Enterprise episode explained there were two types of Klingons. Bumpy and smooth. So just because TOS didn`t show them, doesn`t mean they don`t exist.

The new movies have many, MANY flaws but I wouldn`t put the klingons in that category. I still enjoy the flicks, despite the errors.

Split infinitives are grammatically correct. Google it - there`s page after page of grammar specialists saying so.

OK... Here`s what it means to be a REAL Trekker:

In the most recent movie [Into Darkness] the Klingons should have had smooth heads [like in the original series] since that was explained in great detail in an episode of "Enterprise" which occurred 78 years *prior* to the split in the timeline created by the time traveling Romulan Nero.

Abrams really dropped the ball on that one.

I saw the first interracial kiss and it was a big deal. When I was nine, all my friends made many, many misconceptions. I can`t generalize, but the black women I have been with were fun and exciting.

Just imagine all the careers that are opened up to you with a degree in Klingon or Tribble! I`ve got my doors rigged to make "swoosh" sound like in star trek and even I`m not a big enough trek dork to do that .

Majel also the voice of the main computer in most of the episodes and played several parts in the Animated TV show as well. Also as her character No 1 she was the logical emotionless character and spock was the emotional one. Due to that character choice The Cage was the only episode where Spock actually smiled with out any form of duress. Capt. Pike was the only person Spock trusted enough to display emotions without reservations.

True, Mr. Squirrel, a split infinitive is not incorrect, but it is improper. When the rules for English grammar were formalized, they were based on Latin, in which the infinitive form of most verbs is a single word and, therefore, impossible to split.

What squrlz says. Decent grammar Nazis know to Use English rather than Latin grammar!


Fact: TouchPal keyboard for Android prefers nachos to Nazis, even if you`re really careful. Need to type each letter to get it to even admit the word exists

Well, the trouble with tribbles....
is that they seemed just as desirable to a child at the end of the programme as they did at the beginning.. ( all that fluff)

Actually I think a lot of people would know most of these...certainly the first half dozen.

btw, has anyone read `Read Shirts` by John Scalzi?

If so did you, like me think that first bit of the book was pretty good but then at the end it just descended into some weird web rant?

Both the cell phone and the Ipod were inventions directly inspired by Star Trek

Most of these are common knowledge to even those that are onlky casually familiar with Star Trek.
On that note, I believe that `Trekkers` feel themselves to be a higher order of fanatic than `Trekkies`.
