Somehow I think hyperdrive is a lot faster than warp drive. I mean, they have cargo ships regularly crossing the galaxy for Ori's sake.

Er, I wasn't.
I will, US adaptations of UK shows, from my experience, rate slightly lower than, say, shitty.

The American Office is hilarious. More than that, though, it really does a wonderful job developing the relationships between the characters and not becoming a caricature of itself.

I don't watch the British version, so I'm not able to judge it, and I'm not trying to say the American one is better. But it definitely is a good show and does not deserve to be dissed.

Not directed toward you, Lee, as I know you weren't doing that...

The American version did a terrible job of imitating the British version. This is obvious from the first couple episodes, which recycled a couple scripts from the original. However, after those first couple episodes, the American version did a brilliant job of developing its own characters, loosely comparable to the original's.

I haven't really had a chance to see much of The Office US. The Beeb showed the first season with all its less-than-par knock-offs as Tim mentioned, then lost interest. I've seen one or two episodes really late at night on ITV. It looks OK. The original UK version, I was pretty meh about.

I only started watching The Office from Season 2, so I didn't realize it had gotten off to a rocky start. But yeah, it's been a great show since then, apart from a little dull stretch during part of the fourth season.

A thought occurs; a ship that size could have a sizeable cetacean habitat. In fact, weren't there supposed to be Xindi on the crew of this thing?
Hell, it's big enough to have several alternate environments for Medusans, Tholians etc.

I can't WAIT for the next episode - after the brilliant last episode with... Michael... not spoiling!

Hell yeah! It would be a miniature Federation all unto itself- truly representing the diversity of the UFP to all the species they encounter.
