Raises eyebrow while everyone else has a hearty laugh. Roll credits. End of thread.

I am currently watching Evil Star Trek ( series 2, episode 4, cbs epg informs ), where they are in an alternate universe. Spock has a ming the merciless tache, and they are all trying to kill each other and rut each other senseless.Uhura has just pulled a dagger on sex beast Mr Sulu. Frankly, this is shitloads better than the ordinary crew apart from the Quenelles

Buck Rogers in the twenty fifth century was much better. Beedy beedy beedy.

I like the bit where Luke uses the force. That's the best bit.

Dalliances with police officers is never advisable.

RosyLovelady - 26 Jul 2014 14:09:18 (#6 of 1087)

Aye, especially with ones who you don't know are police officers.

Considering it does a lot of time travel, why does the Tardis always look like a 1950s police box? Couldn't they make it look like a kiosk selling stolen mobile phones?

The Enterprise would phase the shit out of TARDIS in a straight fight.

predicated - 26 Jul 2014 15:49:39 (#9 of 1087)

And I would pay good Lithium to see that.

Gotout - 26 Jul 2014 16:04:38 (#10 of 1087)

You mean gold pressed latinum.

brooklyn - 26 Jul 2014 16:06:34 (#11 of 1087)

uh. that would be "gold pressed latinum."

buncha amateurs on this thread....



oh. sorry, gotout. not you of course.

predicated - 26 Jul 2014 16:09:47 (#12 of 1087)

Lithium, er, Latinum. D'uh. Too much of the former, never enough etc.

dmlc133 - 28 Jul 2014 07:36:34 (#13 of 1087)

Dilithium, otoh

No, the Tardis would simply materialise inside the Enterprise which the Doctor would then dismantle with his sonic screwdriver. Having tied Scotty up with his scarf first, of course.

Tenesmus - 28 Jul 2014 08:38:49 (#15 of 1087)

Internal sensors would detect the double heartbeat and he's be in the brig in no time.

FleurDuMal - 28 Jul 2014 09:44:00 (#16 of 1087)

Having tied Scotty up with his scarf first, of course.

Scotty would love that, the tart!

The TARDIS's chameleon circuit is broken, as explained in the programme on a number of occasions. The Master's TARDIS still has a working chameleon circuit and can therefore change it's appearance.

MaisonLazlique - 28 Jul 2014 15:24:26 (#18 of 1087)

Was the Police Box chosen because it was disappearing by the early 60s, do you think?

Bonusy - 28 Jul 2014 15:25:19 (#19 of 1087)

Chameleons were actually a Gallifreyan lifeform notable for its inability to blend in anywhere outside of Britain in the 1960s.

predicated - 28 Jul 2014 15:51:21 (#20 of 1087)

I would be interested to know why a police box too. The conservative with a small c symbolism seems somehow apt for the times when the programme was first produced.
