Well, I doubt it, because around here it's "Gak" not "Gack."

I think Gack is just the noise you make when someone starts strangling you to death.

Well, for all nonlethal stuff I think we use Ack.

Sometimes I use TACK!

You know. To stick stuff to walls.

I thought it was pfffpt. That's my best approximation of the sound Spider-Man's webbing makes when it hits a surface.

Oh, I'm well below xkcd's radar. If he ever reads this thread, he will laugh and laugh and laugh at the idea that I had anything to offer a juggernaut like him. Despite how much more experience I have and how similar our -- you know what? I'll just refer you to my previous rant.

Nate: "Kablazmo" was just standard fiver randomness. There really is no accounting for sound effects.

A guy can dream, can't he?

Nexus: Ready or not, here I come!
Missile: Okay!
Enterprise-D: Kablazmo!
Missile Launcher: Kablazmo!
Veridian Star: Kablazmo!

Oh, and Wowbagger, it's stated quite clearly in the Glossary that FMV is Full Motion Video, and no matter how much I might dream about videofivers, they won't be happening soon. We used to be 5MV, emphasis on the "5."

Hey, a man can dream, can't he?

Also, comic books are halfway to video.

New point:

Quote:
Khan: Now that I've beamed to my ship and revived all of you, let's do a role call. Gomez?
Gomez: Here.
Khan: Phyllis?
Phyllis: Here.
Khan: Jebediah?....

Kirk: Well, here we are on normal bridge duty.
Redshirt: (over the comm) Khan's escaped!
Uhura: There's nothing we can do to stop him!
Khan: (over the comm) We're draining your air supply as we speak, right Octavio?
Octavio: (over the comm) Right
Kirk: Well, here we are screwed on the bridge.
What is with these names? I know there's a Democratic representative from our state named Phyllis Khan. Are they all Khan names of immense obscurity or what?

Never seen the episode, but I'd guess that given
Quote:
Spock: Here he is: Khan Noonien Singh. Ruler of a quarter of the world, and the greatest of the genetically engineered tyrants.
and Hollywood's racial makeup during the 1960's, Khan's followers all looked like they came from the other three-quarters of the world.

Or possibly Khan's lackeys had weird names in the original episode, and GAFster ran with it and made them even weirder in the fiver.

We need a thread for "fiver jokes that occur to us years later." In this case, a counterpart to Paris' "Revenge of CONN" jokes, in this case, a CONN joke in the TWOK fiver.

You know, I'll bet we can use this thread. I mean, I really don't think we're exactly suffering from forum clutter around here.

Nate got me reading FM "Course: Oblivion". I never read most of the VOY fivers, I now realize, because, when I first found FMV, I hadn't seen most of the series.

Anyways, what's the double entendre here?

FMV? Still?

As to those names, I honestly don't know what to tell you. I imagine my thought process went something along the lines of "wow, I wonder what kind of unusual names I can get away with using here." Sorry to disappoint....

And the double entendre is that they're A. Fictional characters in a TV show and B. Clones of other fictional characters. Hence it's like one cartoon character doing and impression of another cartoon character.

No, it's cool. The names are, indeed, absurd. I just did too much reading into them.

Nate, thanks. That does make some sense.

I don't have any problem with Five-Minute Voyager nostalgia, it's the perpetual use of the inaccurate FMV instead of 5MV that bugs me.
