I remember now that he was later given the Japanese first name Hikaru. So I think he's supposed to be half-Japanese, half-Filipino, which is unlikely given animosity from WWII.


Perhaps Mr. Gene wanted that to be a metaphor regarding his intention for the future of the world: a reconciliation of tensions from his (and our) present day is needed to steer the Enterprise into a glorious future.

Well it's a trade off:

With my pocket protector: six 'common' size pens, arranged in Roy G. Biv order if multiple colors are present. Mechanical pencils will be at the 'V' end of the pocket, while mechanical erasers will be placed at the 'R' side of the pocket.

Without a pocket protector: I can fit up to 8 without excessive crowding. Crowding is bad, since it may cause the pens to not line up in order in a straight line, as may also result in me picking the wrong color pen (always a problem since I like to color-code my notes in meetings, etc).

However, if I only use pens then I will have to forego any other gadgets I may have, such as screwdrivers or a short, triangular multiple scale ruler used for drawing.

Yes, I was an engineer before I was a priest. And no, you don't want to learn what I must do to organize and categorize my food before I eat it!

Thank you for resurrecting that clip.  That and the liquid heat bit - pure movie gold.

Somewhat related (sort of) I have come across a possible "explanation" for my affinity for data and logic like Mr. Spock. I get migraines and can take a wonderful med called "Imitrex" It has a peculiar side affect that a friend recently told me about:

"Large doses of sumatripan (200 mg/day) can cause sulfhemoglobinemia, a rare condition in which the blood changes from red to greenish-black, due to the integration of sulfur into the hemoglobin molecule.

While I haven't noticed such a change, perhaps there are some... ah hem, lesser affects.   Grin

Me?!?  a vampire?   Grin  I meant me, considering that I 1) try to be logical and reasonable and 2) have "Vanyar" as part of my personal header there to the left.

(Now how could I be considered a Romulan?  They *are* relatives of the Vulcans after all.  Wink )

I think Sylar is Da Bomb! (for use of a better Jerry Springer term)

I am only happy with who they cast for Spock and Scotty. The casting for Kirk was horrible. J.J Abrams must have been smoking crack (and I don't say that lightly, I usually love J.J). Personally, I think Julian McMahon would have make a great Kirk.

On a side note, I do think Prison Break's Wentworth Miller would play an excellent Vulcan.
