Ok I watched Star Trek TOS on Sunday, and noticed an error as far as I know. It was the episode with the guy who gains ESP (I don't know how I only started watching it 10mins in....) and he is Kirk's old friend, but he starts going 'power crazed' once he figures out how to use it. He tries to ruin the ship, so the crew decides that he should ether be killed or marooned on this mining planet. Kirk is all "No. He is my friend." but Spock being Spock says "Kill him while we can." So Kirk decides to maroon him. They manage to knock-him-out and transport him to the planet, but he wakes-up and kills a few ppl (maybe just one), so Kirk makes everyone but himself leave, so he can take on the guy. The medical doctor (some blond chick) is 'in love' with the ESP guy, and develops ESP herself, so she also stays on the planet. The two ESPs go off away from the bunker place, and the guy -who at this time thinks he is a god & creates an oasis and food-stuffs- Goes on a rant. Kirk gets there and he is discovered so he duels the ESP guy. The chick finally realizes that the guy is 'crazy' so she weakens him, and Kirk manages to blast a rock on top of him and crush him. Anyway during the 'duel' the ESP guy creates a tombstone and a grave with "James R. Kirk" on the stone. To my knowledge though it's "James T. Kirk" (Tiberius)..... =O

"Just ask Armadei" was what I though afterward XD

SO yeah only...
2 more days left in 1st semester o_o I only have to write 1 exam; Physics 11♥, that should be alright though. Mr. d'Entremont told me I could get a 0% on it and still pass Physics with a 60 XD I will do good on it though because I LOVE PHYSICS :3 I soooooo wish I could take Physics 12, but they were both offered just for 1st semester so I can't -___-

I also got a receipt for my application fee from GPRC (Grande Prairie Regional College) yesterday, along with information on on-campus student housing :) I HOPE I get an acceptance letter soon or something....though I REALLY hope I got accepted :)

*laughs* I am honoured.

That would be the second pilot episode, "Where No Man Has Gone Before". The ESP guy is Gary Mitchell and gains the power when the USS Enterprise tries to cross the barrier at the edge of the galaxy (which they do twice again with different effects -- in "Is There In Truth No Beauty?" and Star Trek V). I really like this episode and found Spock to actually be more in character than in some of the later-filmed early episode, like "The Corbomite Maneuver".

And yes, that 'James R. Kirk' is one of the infamous continuity errors from the original series. ^^ To be fair, it was only their second episode and they still had many things they were working out (like Spock's personality), though I'm not sure what the 'R' was supposed to stand for or why they changed it later. Memory Alpha, the Star Trek wiki, claims that: "Gene Roddenberry wanted a character named 'Rice' in each TV show he created (see Lt. William Rice in 'The Lieutenant'), so the Captain's name was going to be 'James Rice Kirk'. This explains the 'James R. Kirk' tombstone Mitchell creates for Kirk. As the series developed after the second pilot it was somehow forgotten and he became James T. Kirk."

The name 'Tiberius' was actually first used in TAS [The Animated Series] and later used in Star Trek VI; it's thought to have come from either the second Roman emperor, Tiberius Caesar Augustus, or the Tiber River that runs through Rome [also from Memory Alpha].

I hope you do well on your exam and that you are accepted into the college. ^^

Your the most TOS expert I know :P And your welcome.


I thought it was! I know the first was "The Cage" well it was the original pilot, but was edited to include Kirk and the rest, instead of being about Chris Pike, the original protagonist, since the actor quit. I read one of William Shatner's books about working on Star Trek (I have 2 of them a gold dust-jacket one and a silver dust-jacket one).

Very Cool :)

Thanks, and good luck on your new semester :D

And about college me too ^^ I was looking at apartments near the campus last night, because most include utilities, and because the on-campus places are cheapest if it's a 3-4 person unit...and for a Bachelor apartment right near the campus it's only $50-$100 more a month ($350 vs. $450-$495).

"The Cage" was actually re-used for the only TOS two-part episode ("The Menagerie"). I think their main motivation for doing that was to save money, which they didn't have a lot of at that point.

I actually haven't read any of William Shatner's books, but I have read Leonard Nimoy's I am Spock and a few generic 'making-of' Star Trek books.

Thanks. ^^

Most places on-campus will be four people per suite (and two per room), at least if it's the same as it is in the US. You get convenience with living on-campus and it's a unique experience, but living off-campus would probably be more comfortable and quieter. The main consideration with living off-campus seems to me to be transportation, but if you're close enough to the campus to walk, that it's not really an issue. And, quite frankly, dealing with a roommate is a major headache unless you're one of the lucky few who gets a good one, so having an apartment is probably your best bet.

I've seen "The Menagerie" actually I own it :D
*beep beep*

I have only read one (I was planning on reading the other this summer while I was tenting, but didn't get around to it/read James Bond books ^^;). I want to read "I am Spock" and I probably have a copy somewheres (I was given a whole bunch of Star Trek stuff that used to belong to June's daughter).

You are welcome!

These are single rooms, but have a shared living area/kitchen and two bathrooms for 4 people to share. I'm pretty sure I'll be doing the dorm thing...

I actually inherited a whole bag-worth of Star Trek books from some of my mum's brothers; I've only read about four of them so far.

I have envy of your single rooms and kitchen. :p I'd rather like to have access to a stove, but all we have in the dorms are microwaves; there are some foods that just don't taste the same nuked. Then again, the two friends I know who live in apartments with four single rooms and a shared living room/kitchen tend to complain that at least two of the four people never wash their dishes, so perhaps our rather lacking dining halls are worth something . . . (I get irritated being the only one who takes the bathroom garbage out as it is.) Hopefully your suitemates are better.

And two bathrooms! Very nice. I can't tell you the number of times I've ended up going to bed later than planned because someone decided to take a shower right before I was going to use the toilet . . . Ah well; you have to have a certain amount of flexibility when living with others. And in some of the halls, they do have separate showers and water closets.
