    Well there are two versions of Trek now. Roddenberry's original flavor and the JJ Abrams new version where Kirk has already met Khan and The original Spock was mentoring his younger self.

    Yeah...the 'Kelvin' timeline or something? CBS did state that this wasn't in JJ's new timeline. So this is a third timeline I guess? Or a second and-a-halfth? Or from a non-subjective, non-linear viewpoint, it's like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey -- oops, wrong show.

    There is a theory regarding the tech, like the "teleportation drive"; namely that it's experimental and, for reasons unknown, may not remain in wide use.

    That may work, since the repercussions could end up leading to either timeline, or branching off into a third; who knows.

    I suppose it's all plausible. They do run into stuff that actually is from TOS, like one of the guest characters (won't spoil whom for those who haven't seen it). And that character was messing around with time...so... who knows?

    I'm okay with this show being its own entity, too, though. A reimagined Star Trek that is similar enough to be familiar, but is not really beholden to TOS or any existing Star Trek property. But I guess that would make it a reboot or something and...this is starting to get confusing! lol

    I loved Babylon 5! All the Lovecraftian themes.

    What I loved about Babylon 5, and Deep Space 9, was the fact they didn't take place on a spaceship cruising around the universe. They both took place on space stations with many different species living and interacting with each other. To me those stories were much more interesting.

    I almost forgot! In the first movie, THEY REWROTE TIME! Once you do that, any change goes. Let's face it, the Enterprise that Shatner/Kirk is quaint compared to the Enterprise Pine/Kirk now commands. That last movie was so much fun! As an original watcher of the original series was back when Lyndon Johnson was president of the USA...I Approve!!!

    I wouldn't think they would taste too good, being past their sell-by date and all. ;)

    One would think not!

    Although, I could be wrong about it being old people. It could have just been people ... regardless of age.

    Funny thing: When I first heard about Soylent Green being made of people, it made me start wondering what the hell was a "soy bean"? I had never heard of it before.:unsure:

    Sadly, so many shows that you could say have the same stereotypes lacked the good character interplay that made firefly work. It was the way the characters played off of each other that made it work and why I say they Nailed it. I rather enjoyed the interplay between the crew. I also disagree about them using every stereotyped trope - but not everyone needs to agree. Not everyone needs to like the same shows - or even like them for the same reasons.

    Lots of stuff is made of Soy now. Vegan food products are a good example. Soy sausages, mince, cheese, milk and more.

    Not in the USA. However, way back when Jimmy Carter was president, I was stationed in Okinawa. I grew tired of the local cuisine and went in search for two things. Tacos and Cheeseburgers. I didn't find tacos on the first journey out but instead I found something called Soybean Bean Burgers. They didn't have cheese but I feasted on this facsimile until was full! The next year A&W Root beer opened up a franchise on the island. The taste wasn't the same and they didn't have root bear because I was told the taste was foreign for the locals. The service however was incredible. I went back several times.

    Growing up as a kid in the 60's and 70's, in the south, I grew up across the street from a Ralston Purina plant. They made dog food. I found out later, or rather I heard later, that they used soy beans to make the dog food. I hope you'll understand then that I've always associated soy beans with dog food, and I've never been too eager to try it out.:coffee:;)

    Glad I didn't know that little factoid!
