I did joke with her about dressing up and got a swift kick in the shins though :P

If you can't push your luck then what is the point of living? No one ever got anywhere that was worth while by not pressing their luck to achieve it.

LOL! It's when those knees press against thy groin that pushing one's luck becomes a risky proposition.

Well like the main man said: "Risk is our business... That is why we are out here...That is why we're aboard her."

Dumb action and lots of explosions did not make Nemesis a succesful movie and I seriously doubt that you put 150 million bucks in a project just to repeat a mistake.

I'm talking more about, McCoy: Oh no! We have no captain and no first officer to take his place!

Kirk: Yeah, we do... (not believing what he's about to do, he takes the command chair while observing himself as though a great transformation is about to occur akin to Captain Marvel or Thor, and Kirk the rebelious underachiever now becomes Kirk the hero we all know, while everyone else around him simply allows him while they are all in awe of the moment: The Messiah has come!!! <cue dramatic music>)

I know I'm setting myself up for major ridicule here but... I have to say, that scene turned my stomach.

Again, sorry.

I see your point...but then again we are watching a brand of "space opera" just as Star wars was... Remember Luke Skywalker nursing his severed limb. Screamin no that is impossible to his newly discovere father Darth Vader? And how he tossed himself to the wind valiantly, to avoid becoming a pawn of the the Emporer? High Drama indeed yet we ate it up as movie goers. Nothing new with the scene from Trek. Just my opinion.

We're assuming those lines of dialogue are actually going together...

It could end up being more akin to the scene in the 40k comic, Titan, where the Titan Commander dies, and they have to plug in the cadet because he's the only one with the necessary training and interface jacks. Believe me, the cadet isn't confident before the plug in at all.
