    You rule Pete, thanks for putting a smile on this tired face.

  • This is not my America

    Nice Pete.
    Now too the darker side of this….

    In a galaxy far far away….
    On a planet called earth..

    When one considers how the Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious ruled and how he pulled the strings on both sides to become ruler of all, then consider what is going on in this world…well..its down right scarey..not funny at all.

    Speaking of Star wars, wheres darth vader…I mean Dick Chaney been hiding?

  • darkcycle

    It’s all so complicated…how do you deal with the Dark Side? Issues around “the voice”…. MY children all follow the prime directive, much simpler (In case you didn’t know, the prime directive is: “Never mention the prime directive until you’re damn sure you’re about to violate it.”).

    This dispensary just opened right up the road from my house. I used to pass by this location every day when I lived further up that way. Nice to see you post on there Duncan.

    boring, trite, tedious, uninspired.

    We Are The Borg. You Will Be Assimilated
    ”Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.”

    The Borg assimilate almost everyone they come in contact with. In other words, they absorb them into the Borg which is a mass consciousness and they become efficient drones who do not even remember their old life. As part of the borg, you become a small part of a whole (the collective), and lose all sense of individuality. “Their main goal is to find perfection by assimilating more species and technology but they only assimilate what they think is relevant biological or technological traits. The Borg are un-emotional but efficient and can only grow in numbers by assimilation.”

    Articles of the Federation, Chapter I, Article II, Paragraph VII, which states:
    “ Nothing within these articles of Federation shall authorize the United Federation of Planets to intervene in matters which are essentially the domestic jurisdiction of any planetary social system, or shall require the members to submit such matters to settlement under these Articles of Federation; But this principle shall not prejudice the application of enforcement measures under Chapter VII. ”

    and has been further defined as:
    “ As the right of each sentient species to live in accordance with its normal cultural evolution is considered sacred, no Starfleet personnel may interfere with the normal and healthy development of alien life and culture. Such interference includes introducing superior knowledge, strength, or technology to a world whose society is incapable of handling such advantages wisely. Starfleet personnel may not violate this Prime Directive, even to save their lives and/or their ship, unless they are acting to right an earlier violation or an accidental contamination of said culture. This directive takes precedence over any and all other considerations, and carries with it the highest moral obligation.

    • darkcycle

      Yet, oddly, they only mention it when preparing to violate it. “This directive takes precedence over any and all other considerations [except plot development], and carries with it the highest moral obligation.”

  • Mike R

    Very funny. Would have been better had they mentioned Palpatine hijacking freedom and liberty in the name of security and paranoia.

  • vicky vampire

    Well the people on the Enterprise and the other Federation vessels were in fact constantly looking for “M” class planets.

    The Galactic Federal Drug Czar is apparently just as successful as his earthly counterpart

    Dutara root is a type of food eaten by Xyrillians, described to be one of Ah’len’s favorites.

    http://www.startrek.com/database_article/dutara-root

    Datura belongs to the classic “witches’ weeds,” along with deadly nightshade, henbane, and mandrake. Most parts of the plants contain toxic hallucinogens, and datura has a long history of use for causing delirious states and death. It was well known as an essential ingredient of love potions and witches’ brews.
