FTP doesn't do f'req; but I believe there's someone on the internet picking
these things up for ftp.  Ask John Kahane at Brian & Wendy's - he ought to know.

   Proof?
   1.  Obi-wan told Yoda that there was "another".  He wasn't referring
        Leia, as she'd received no training.  Besides, you don't think
        that it was actually *Yoda* hwo lifted the X-Wing out of the
        swamp, do you?

   2.   Listen to Kosh's speech.  Clearly some form of translation
        device (probably salvaged from C3PO's carcass) has been
        installed in the encounter suit.

   3.   With a suitable power-supply and enough spare-parts, Kosh/R2
        would understand the concept of immortality.
I rest my case.

Science fiction and fantasy as well - and I think those that believe
those scams will work are living in a fantasy world.  8)

  -=>I did not mean to come in with a flamethrower but I have seen to

Funny, but I don't seem  recall seeing you blaze way at person who
posted the scam itself, just at the parody I posted.  You've made an
excellent impression.

Anyway, consider the thread dropped.

Earth 2 is still produced by Amblin Entertainment, though, so he didn't
walk very far! :-)

And yet at one time, she felt she was being shafted in ST:TOS, too! In
fact, she said in William Shatner's Star Trek Memories, that she was
ready to quit the series and that it was only because of something
Martin Luther King told her that made her stick it out...

The episode is called "Faces", but it could just as easily have been
called "feces", because it was such a blatant re-use of previous
material...

TH "Speaking of reruns, I find that I actually enjoy rewatching old
TH "Voyager episodes... Now that says something. I found watching an old
TH "NG episode (that I'd seen before) to be boring and lifeless...

I expect my 10 tapes of ST:TNG to get lots of use during the dreary TV
days of summer. I actually watched ST:V's "Cathexis" again last night
(to make sure I wanted to keep a copy) and really enjoyed it. Since
then, however, the episodes weren't worth watching the first time, had
there been anything better to watch during UPN's time slot for ST:V...

MW "I got to admit it doesn't bother me much if I miss an episode.
MW "However, I like the character of Neelix. He injects a bit of humor
MW "and common sense into an otherwise unexceptional show. Likewise the
MW "doctor. The stories themselves do seem to be same ole, same ole.

I wouldn't complain about Neelix if he didn't seem to always be employed
as Barclay was in TNG. Of all the characters, I find the holo-doc the
most interesting. Perhaps it's because he seems to be more of an "adult"
(even though he's probably quite childlike when it comes to
understanding the human condition) than the rest of the crew who seem to
be fresh out of the academy and just barely beyond puberty. I really
dislike how demographics is having such a profound effect on TV...

GW "CREATION REVIEW 1995:  THE TROUBLE WITH R'NOLD!
GW "By GARY L. WARREN
GW "While USA Network has canceled TEKWAR, a Canadian network is
GW "considering producing more episodes.

Hmmm... I must be a prophet! :-) A couple weeks ago, after noticing we
were not getting any new episodes, I commented here that it was as if
USA had cancelled the series without telling anyone!

While the whole idea of Tekwar was a bit like reinventing police story,
the series was getting good toward the end. I especially liked the ep in
which Lt. Winger was in danger of not being allowed to recharge his
circuits (effectively killing him, if that term could ever apply to a
robot). I guess we should have known something was wrong when they wrote
Jake's partner out of the series and replaced him with an attractive
female...

I simply can not believe that Tekwar wasn't one of USA's bigger draws!
With all of their crummy B movies, can they actually be so picky? What's
more likely is that Tekwar just cost more than it was bringing in. This
does not bode well for original sci-fi on TV, if a cable company like
USA can't make money on it...

I really am a prophet! :-) When Sliders first aired, I commented that
JRD was the most likely to move on, because of his distinguished movie
career. I just couldn't see him sticking around in a weekly TV show when
he could be doing stuff like Indiana Jones 4...

it probably won't be quite the same if Quinn dies...
