[color=#000000ost_uid0]Zeke here, introducing a 5MV mini-event à la Tribble Day. This time, to celebrate the onset of spring, it's Mudd Day.

For those unfortunates who don't know, Harry Mudd was a Classic Trek character with two appearances on the live-action show and one on the animated series. He was sort of a proto-Quark: a sly, scheming scoundrel you couldn't help but love, bad guy or not. This is really Derek Dean's event -- he's written fivers for the three Mudd episodes, to wit "Mudd's Women", "I, Mudd", and "Mudd's Passion" (TAS). As a little contribution of my own, Harry and Stella get a cameo in a [iost_uid0]This Just In[/iost_uid0] I've been planning for a while: Berman, Braga not actually Hitler.

Enjoy, and remember those feedback links. Derek's been around me and Kira for long enough that the desperate hunger for ego food is bound to kick in any day now....[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Great TJI, Zeke. I especially liked "Trekkers Against Trek" and the scene:
[quoteost_uid0]"...You can't trick me! I AM OMNISCIENT!"

With that, Mrs. Scrivener dramatically stormed out of the room, pausing only twice to trip over her chair. [/quoteost_uid0]

By the way, did Mary Sue get married? She was going by Ms. Scrivener the last time we saw her.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]:smile: Funny stuff!

I think my favorites were probably

[quoteost_uid0]Android: Please wait while the android shuts d-- GAK!
Kirk: Oh great, the blueshirt bluescreened. Reboot him, Spock.
Spock: Gladly. (Kick! )
Android: The android has detected an improper shutdown. Please wait while the android runs Scandisk. 1%... 2%... Whoops! Found an error. Restarting. 1%....
(4 days later)
Android: 28%... 29%... Whoops! Found an error. Restarting. 1%....[/quoteost_uid0]

[quoteost_uid0]Kirk: I thought you said your purpose was to serve man!
Alice -0.47: That was just the name of our cookbook.[/quoteost_uid0]

[quoteost_uid0]Spock: Maybe I was hard on Christine. She really is attractive. Sigh, everything just reminds me so much of her. Computer, append her report to Mudd's file.
Computer: Appended.
Spock: Wow. Even the computer reminds me of her.[/quoteost_uid0]

[quoteost_uid0]Mountain 2: Oh great. Now you're affected. Just let me at the humans.
Mountain 1: No, they're mine. My preciousss.
Mountain 2: Your preciousss just used its transporterses.
Mountain 1: Curse it! We hates it! Nasty Hobbitses.
Mountain 2: Hobbitses?[/quoteost_uid0]

:lol:

And the cameos by PHJ, Ms. Scrivener, and Searing Pain were particularly funny too.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Terrific trilogy, Derek! "Mudd's Women" has a great early-in-the-series flavour to it, and I lost count of how many referential jokes you managed to pack into these three fivers. Spock's "Wow. Even the computer reminds me of her" line took me a few seconds to figure out...then cracked me up![/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Hehe. Much funniness.

[quoteost_uid0]Scanner: BEEP BEEP! WOOHOO! YEAH![/quoteost_uid0]

[NITPICK]There's a typo in 'Mudd's Passion' by the way. One of the mountains says 'you're' instead of 'your'.

And yes, I am the sort of person that notices typos in books. I haven't yet progressed to marking their locations with post-its though.[/NITPICK][/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Thanks, Derek and Zeke, for giving me a good many cackles at the Mudd episodes -- nice continuity touches as well as many good TOS jokes (yep, I'm hooked on that one) -- and the TJI.

[quoteost_uid0]There's simply no question that Hitler is alive and well and working for Paramount Pictures[/quoteost_uid0]

Hmm. I personally believe Hitler is working for the Swedish Movie Syndicate. They only showed ST:X for two weeks here! :madder: I'll have to wait for the DVD. :swear:[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Not when it comes to coverage of Star Trek... but I did get to see "X2" last night (which was probably far superior to ST:X, if I understand things correctly) -- and they begin showing "Enterprise" tonight. But I'd like to see "Nemesis" -- even if the reviews I trust discuss the movie as less than enthusing.

Other than that -- no, I don't mind living where I do. I'd have used my double citizenship to change matters for the better if I wasn't OK with conditions here.[/colorost_uid0]

A few years ago - actually, more than a few - BCTV News ran a series of stories called The Swedish Solution. It was basically an examination of all the things Sweden had done right, and how British Columbia could emulate them. At that point in time, BC and Sweden had a lot in common - they were both vaguely socialist states with a lot of trees and lakes.[/colorost_uid0]
