*Waits for the necro post image to be posted...*

Well, untill the new movie comes out, there will probably be a shortage of tech threads, and trek threads in general.

True Resurrection: The thread may be dead for up to one year per caster level and suffers no loss of level or Constitution from being revived. Not even true resurrection can raise a thread which was locked by a mod.

My room-mate bitches constantly that they're destroyed the game with this new version- everyone is calling it "Roll-Playing"- referring to the lack of any needed role-playng, as long as the dice/stats are kind.

I think people should just play whatever version they want to play regardless of what's current. I mean, there are people who still play 2nd ed.

Next you'll tell me that Riker really DID serve aboard the USS Lollipop.

More from Vanguard:
Sorry, it's pet peeve of mine about the Canonistas. Every line of dialog in every show MUST be taken literally, along with every graphic, every display, ever set piece, even if the material was never intended as such.

"Almost a million gross tons of vessel, depending on a hunk of crystal the size of my fist."

You can whine and name-call and straw man all you like, but the above statement does not follow the usual patterns for hyperbole.

It's Scotty, dammit, he's always hyperbolic.

If McCoy had said that line, I could easily see him being hyperbolic.

McCoy: "Almost a million gross tons of vessel, depending on a hunk of crystal the size of my fist.'

Scotty: "Doctor McCoy, the Enterprise is a wee more than a million gross tons..."

McCoy: "Whatever! Dammnit Scotty, I'm a doctor, not an engineer!"

First he claims that the Bonaventure is first starship with warp drive and now he claims the Enterprise is a million tons. How did he become Chief Engineer? And where's my GURPS rule book?
