Well it is a good thing the Vulcans will come by to spare us Einstein's predicted second stone age.

I thought I'd be one of those whole populations bombed out of existence, but fortunately that turned out to be... um, those other guys. You know the ones.

...no, not North Koreans. That's next week.....

Well I have a couple hours to kill and figured this is a good excuse to watch FC again, so there's my evening.

France? That would explain a British accented Frenchman without any of the annoying French crap they spew.

odds are pretty good aren't they? seem to recall the death toll is going to be in the hundreds of millions rather than the billions and by then we might be up to eight or nine? :)

anyway, isn't it due to kick off in San Francisco soon where Sisko is killed for being a gimme or a dim?

I never got that. Why didn't they just rename Picard into a British name since they hired a British actor who wasn't going to do a French accent?

Dude, in all seriousness, I don't think anyone on the forum gets it.

Maybe the French and all their culture was wiped out by the Eugenics Wars, since there can never be a French Superman, and the Brits moved over giving each other Franck names in honor of their one-time frenemy.

One can only hope. Seriously I have dealt with the French and they deserve all the disrespect while the British sailors are every bit the equals or exceeding those of the of the US Navy.

Yes I do hate the French and of you paid taxes during 2008 so should you.
