NuDeltaHoth - I love it! I wonder if the Klingons in the sequel will be riding around in giant mechanical targs? All Terrain Attack Targs - it works!

Knowing JJA and his fascination with all things Star Wars, I wouldn't put it past him

That's about the only straight forward answer we ever got from any of them. It's quite obvious from that statement that they intended for us to believe that NuDeltaHoth was the same planet depicted as Delta Vega in WNMHGB. However, there was no reason to change the planet from a desolate wasteland with an automated lithium cracking station into a Hoth-like ice world with a Federation outpost manned by comic relief NuScotty and his little pet lawn gnome. They could have easily called it "Exo-III" or a completely new name. I know they "thought' it was a cool easter egg, but the decision was ill-advised, and not very well thought out. Just like the rest of the movie.

Just my 2 quatloo's. Ya know me. Stirrin' tha pot
Little pet lawn gnome, I like that.

Mhh, now how to solve the Keenser problem? I got it:

Not that hard to manufacture some evidence of wrongdoing.
Now I wonder whether we should roast him a bit slower, after all the meat of his species is said to be very tender. I'd make an exception to my vegetarianism in case of the little crusty one.

On the plus side.............Star Wars led to The Empire Strikes Back..............so that might not actually be a bad thing!
