Times Fatigue

Criminey. After seven grim years of "Voyager," we got "Enterprise," which everyone hated because they had the phase-coil ramscoops permanently set on TREK SUX, even though the new show is 10X better. It's the anti-PC Trek, and earned my undying patronage when two characters - a Southerner and an Englishmen - realize they're going to die when they get lost in a shuttlecraft, and spend their last moments sharing a bottle of scotch and talking about the Vulcan chick's arse. On "Voyager," Chakotay would have made a Dreamcatcher out of wire and led them in breathing excercises.

Whiny geeks. Draft them all and drop them in Damascus, I say.
