Kirk


edit: the apple eating thing was the "punk" aspect I was referring to.
But essentially that is Kirk - even in TOS he wasn't subtle, and he went for the simplest solution. The quick cheat. He maybe dressed it up to himself in later years but it basically was always pure and simple cheating.

Perhaps I missed your point, but I believe I will NOT be alone. These are the aspects of your post I think you should refrain from repeating. It usually leads to nasty arguments and then the MODS get involved. I didn't mean to come across as mean spirited, just giving advice.

Neither is "real fan, fake fan" BS. We are all fans, why else would we be here?

I'm sure it was merely a miss communication, you certainly have the right to post how you feel, Integritas. Feel free to be yourself.

His post was NOT directed toward me. He did clearly make some statements questioning someone's fan status.

Default Captain Pike just saw the movie. Unbelievably impressive

There are no words to describe it. All I can say is it was incredible. The Enterprise was massive and believable. I was emotional so many different times I lost count. The whole theater clapped their hands at the end and that is something I have never witnessed in my 40 something years at the movies. Going back for a second showing at 7:25. Pike out!!!
