Is the Shout Box disabled permanently?  Was that the way the hackers got in?  Will it ever come back? 

And what about Naomi?

Naomi?  I know that the box has been down all day, but I figured it might be part of some reduction in functionality while diagnostics are going on (okay, so I have heard the word "diagnostics" at least a dozen times in the last 35 minutes, thanks to ST:TNG).  I don't know for sure.

Naomi?ÂÂ  

You mean you don't know about "The Electric Company" and it's segment "Love of Chair"?!?? I'm shocked (or of a different generation  Wink )  "The Electric Company" was a program that helped with learning to read, sort of a next step up from "Sesame Street".  One of the recurring bits was "Love of Chair" that would have several sentences that were slightly different such as "The Boy is on the Chair.  The Boy is by the Chair" and so forth.  At the end the announcer would speak like he was part of a soap opera "Will the boy get down from the chair?  Will the Boy stand by the Chair?  .....  And what about Naomi?" <Boy looks confused>

Another part of the program was "Easy Reader" played by Morgan Freeman.

Klingon: The enterprise is a garbage scow, half the quadrant knows it, thats why they're learning to speak klingonese.

Mr. Scott: Laddy, don't you think you ought to rephrase that?

Klingon: (in scottish accent) You're right, I should... I didn't mean to say that the Enterprise should be hauling garbage.... I meant that it should be hauled away AS GARBAGE! Hahah.

Chekov: MISTER SCOTT!

*Scotty gets up and lays out the klingon with a right hook*

Anyone know which TOS episode thats from?

'The Trouble with Tribbles'.

Once read something from the screenwriter who wrote that the original idea was for one alien creature that was extremely cute but actually deadly. That plot would have depended on Mr Spock being unemotional enough to kill it and save the crew.

That was a good episode (even if it did hurt their budget for the rest of the season). I loved the face of Mr. Worf when asked to explain why original ST Klingons looked so different than post-original series ones.

Cmdr. Deanna Troi: [very drunk] Look. He wouldn't even talk to me unless I had a drink with him. And then, it took three shots of something called "tequila" just to find out that HE was the one we're looking for! And I've spent the last twenty minutes trying to keep his hands off me! So don't go criticizing my counseling techniques!

Dr. Zefram Cochrane: I don't care. I don't want to be a statue.
William Riker: We don't have time for this.
[Pulls out a phaser and stuns Cochrane]
William Riker: You told him about the statue?

I believe his response was

"We do not speak of it."

Two things about that one:

• Cochrane and his post-nuke friends were more fun than the boring, PC TNG crew.
• Went off 'Trek' for good with this one because in Earth's 'first contact' with aliens the Vulcans land, walk off their ship and... speak English.

To quote the "Veggie Tales" telling of the Story of St. Patrick (as a "Flannelgraph) referring to where he was taken by pirates:  "Now this was the land of the druids and the people spoke a different language.  But we'll pretend they all spoke English.  Like "Star Trek".  Pig: "Even the pigs?" Narrator: "No, not the pigs." Pig: "OK. oinking sounds".

We were discussing a translation of the Liturgy into Klingon and Quenya amongst ourselves at Holy Cross...the one that stumped us was 'Lord have Mercy,' for surely there isn't a word 'Mercy' with positive connotations in the Klingon Language, so we were thinking it might have to translate to something like 'Lord Kill me with Honour' or 'Lord let me die Honourably.'

Hmm, interesting thought.  "Lord, bring me to Sto-va-cor"  "Lord, choq!" (according to the Klingon Language Institute choq is a verb meaning preserve or save.

I just found a joke in the list of new words, btw:
ghotI'  (n) fish, most general word for fish-like creature
 ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  Cheesy  (It's pronounced something like ggghhhoti though).

In looking for some possible information, I was at "Memory Alpha" the Trek Wiki and found that there *IS* an explaination now of the difference between TOS Klingons and later ones.  See here:
