Oh I forgot, Keeeeesssnnneeeeerrr!!!!!!!


How about a Trek version of Cluedo: who killed Keenser?
Was it Scotty in Budgineering with the hyperspanner, was it the Tattoomulan on the seaweed ship with the disruptor or was it Chekov in Kirk's quarters with the bottle of Saurian brandy?

OMG you just invented the best game of Cluedo everrrrrrr. I'm betting it was Janice in the arboretum using her legs.

You can thank Horatio for "Tatoomulans". He coined the phrase if I recall correctly. As for "Budgineering", I'm not sure who started that one, but it works

Speaking of Captains, Kirk from Cadet to Captain, etc. was one of the biggest fantasies of the movie for me. Really had to just file that one away to enjoy the flick.

Yes, that required some willing suspension of disbelief
