  1. I was on the Romulus page on Memory Alpha, misread(reversed) your first reply about Hobus and the sun. We're good. Thanks!
  2. I had no idea. I went to the wiki earlier, and it might've been the wrong one, but none of that was mentioned. That is pretty trashy.
  3. What did they retcon about it? I am out of the loop. Is it not still accepted that some Romulan tomfoolery led to the supernova?
  4. I got super sidetracked work, didn't mean to let that fall off. Wasn't much left to say except I am a pretty casual Trek fan, so perhaps that is why I enjoy the newer stuff, and I may have been a bit holier than I meant to be.
  5. Agreed, I really enjoyed them spreading out the character building a little more in S2. I hope with S3 seemingly being the crew spread out throughout the galaxy or maybe even time, we see more character central episodes. They've added a lot of depth to every character they focused on and it was nice.
  6. I stopped reading the Star Wars thread here for that exact reason too. I don't even necessarily disagree with some or maybe even most of it, but don't people ever get tired of shitting on the things they supposedly like? I went into Picard and Disco cold. Voyager was the last show I watched when it was on TV, and have obviously watched the JJ movies. I enjoyed the hell out of Picard, and dare say I think it was nearly flawless. And Disco, I drank that show up and can't wait for the next season.
  7. I saw this thread and was like "ooh, I just watched and enjoyed that show, let's go see what...oh, nope, better avoid this thread too." FFS.
  8. HLJ made me verify paypal again and I lost it to order stop. Yay.
  9. Amimi popped back up, then took me to their "sorry it's gone" page. Reeee. lol
  10. 1999 poofed the instant it went up.
  11. My credit union blocks overseas purchases by default. I need to call them and unblock it for 24 hours to order from anywhere not the US or Canada.
  12. And I totally forgot to unlock my card for amiami. haha.
  13. Glad I am off tomorrow.
  14. It did. Lucas and Lucasfilm outlined a ton of rules for what the stories could and could not do. Fast forward to The New Jedi Order undertaking and you get Lucas, Lucasfilm and publishers all involved again in this huge conversation about what can and can't happen. A dozen authors simultaneously writing 19 books from different views spanning years in the universe, including the same cast in all of them. They killed Chewbacca and to a lesser extent, they killed a ton of characters that had been written around for decades. They brought a new way of looking at the Force, they showed us how stupidly bad ass Luke Skywalker was and gave us Leia as a Jedi. It was huge. It was awesome. Then we get GL saying in one of his interviews he never gave a damn and it was all(the EU) basically an alternate universe. The man who contradicts himself more in single interviews and videos more than most people do in their entire lives, and on this subject? Mr. "I wrote a trilogy, no wait I wrote 6 movies, no wait I wrote 9 movies, no wait again, Disney I wrote you a new trilogy!" Suddenly everyone wants to take his word as law? Even some of the same people who wanted to stake him up because of the prequels? Yeah, K. Along comes Disney, and they throw the baby out with the bathwater. If nothing else, nearly 40 years of technology writing was the biggest loss in my opinion: Suddenly everything about lightsabers is bland and boring. They give capital ship a gas tank. TIEs and X-Wings are manufactured by the same company. They're building Star Destroyers......on the ground? The list goes on and on. Not all of the writing was great, but damn if there weren't a ton of great characters, places and events during that time. Not to mention expanding on the Force in some crazy ways. The dismissive way people treat the EU/Legends is kind of ridiculous. Kind of like how so many talk trash on (or downright hate?) Boba Fett yet at the same time don't accept he's the sole reason y'all got Jango and the Mandalorians expanded upon.
  15. Thank you!
