made me laugh anyway!

(apparently I need at least 10 words before they will post this, so I think i’m over …. just to make sure:
i i i i i i i i i i i i i i how annoying)

Anyone heard whats next? no more tv shows after Enterprise is finished? that wasnt the best idea to start with if you ask me. They could have widened the net like they did with Stargate and take things beyond our Galaxy. Isnt being confined to one small puddle in the grand scheme of things quite limiting? I mean, how can they run out of ideas? Who decided to go back in time? why not re-cast the original series and just film all the old episodes with special effects? where’s my tui…. ok they even tried a cartoon version for spock’s sake! Wheres the logic in that I ask you…

I wonder if Prime will be playing Voyager on Saturdays when they finish with one of the Star Treks..
They have the first three at the moment, but personally, Voyager was the best in my opinion. Janeway certainly paved the way, and went where no captain had gone before.
Enterprise was ok, but could never get past Scott Bakula as being “Quantam Leap”
I half expected Harry Dean Stanton to pop up somewhere… but he never did.
