Anything you like. I don't believe in the significance of "canon" :P

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Hmmm...

"Sulu". That's a wild ass guess. If you know better, you didn't have to ask :)

Ah, I thought these were "try to stump Gnome with Trek Trivia" type questions, not just "want to know" questions. :P

It better not be trivia because I'm cheating like a bitch, then. :P

I am a geek but even I don't have all this memorized.

Your favorite what?

It isn't Star Trek, and neither is that thing with the froggy-woggy captain and the alleged Klingons who are really nice black people.
Ah, we have a TOS purist in our midst. I had a lot of resistance to TNG at first (I called it Star Trek: The Next Cancellation). But I do think TNG was a worthy sucessor to TOS and (late) DS9 was better than either for the reasons I already mentioned. It DID get old and tired after that, though.

Come December of 2008, you are REALLY going to freak out at seeing Matt Damon as Captain Kirk and Adrian Brody as Mr. Spock (and maybe Gary Sinise as McCoy). :P

I toast you as the purest form of Trekkie/Trekker, though. Myself, I try to steer clear of the Trekkie/Trekker "de-bakkle" :wink: (100 Elder God points to anyone who can identify THAT reference)

I now remember what I fucking wanted to ask.

I know at some point in TNG they found that heavy warp use in one area of space creates some sort of anamoly. What was it?

Also, was Voyager fitted with some special organic warp drives that helped lessen or even eliminate the problem?

First!
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Worst... episode... EVER. (at least, on my short list)

You know what, it's a made up universe... why invent something that annoying? And then after setting it up, make it so easy to ignore and get around. Bleah. The "New Coke" episode.

BTW, good job finding that Charlie... as with my thread at TOP, others can answer if they want to (saves me the work)...

Okay, the ULTIMATE question.

Kirk or Picard ? Or Sisko? Or (if we must) Janeway or Archer.

So, whats your opinion of Vulcans "knowing" god exists but still having issues with evil in the world (according to Spocks World).

No.

But Q did get in trouble with the Green blur from one of TOS shows, the disembodied head from that really stupid movie (the one with Spocks half brother) and the entity outside of our galaxy that makes you go insane if you try to go through the barrier (the barrier was made by the Q to keep this thing out of our galaxy).
