I had thought about that too (the fact that no-one ever talks about Archer & co.) but I was prepared to ignore it. It would be kinda hard to backtrack and insert references in all the previous shows. Maybe they'll talk about them in the novels. Or, maybe you're right and they'll talk about them in 'Nemesis'.

Who knows, maybe they talked about Archer all the time, then this young upstart named Kirk came along stole all the glory and they forgot about Archer.smiley - winkeye

I really hope they eventually do an episode where they explain the Klingon brow ridges though.

Hmmmmm.......I reckon Picard had a model of Archer's Enterprise on the wall in First Contact.
You remember the "you broke your little ships, Ahab" bit?
There's at least 7 models on the wall (a bit like those 70s flying ducks) and that's too many, isn't it???

I don't know, maybe a proper trekkie smiley - geek can enlighten us......

Also, I'm sure I remember a moment in NextGen where Picard gets a bit maudlin and name-drops the Enterprise captains who went before him. There's at least one between Kirk and Picard (that bod from the start of Generations), but I'm sure Kirk isn't the first on the list........

Hey, who knows, who cares? smiley - online2long

Didn't they kinda give a nod to the Klingon forehead ridges issue in the DS9 "Trials and Tribble-ations" episode (The one where Sisko and co. went back and messed about with Kirk and co. in the Original Series episode)?

You know... the bit where Worf and O'Brien walk into the mess hall and O'Brien looks at Worf, then the Original Series Klingon, then back at Worf with a somewhat quizzical look on his face.

Worf just says "Don't ask!" or something...

Yes, they did give a nod to the Klingon brow thing in the DS9 tribble episode. They didn't really explain it though. I think Worf says, "We don't discuss such things." Or something to that effect.

Captians of the 'Enterprise' are: Jonathan Archer, Christopher Pike, James T. Kirk, John Harriman (Enterprise B), Rachel Garrett (Enterprise C), Jean-Luc Picard (Enterprise D&E). Just incase anyone does care.smiley - winkeye

Interesting note: Capt. Harriman is played by Alan Ruck (from 'Spin City') in 'Generations' the movie.

That must have been a dry year at the Academy if a loser like Captain Harriman got to be Captain of the Federation Flagship!

Who am I? I'll let you know as soon as I remember.

I agree if you lose a living legend on your first mission, its probably a career ender. Or at least a dead end career stoper. I dont see him climbing through the ranks very high.

I like the series. I like the captain. The dog is cool. I like the song - not for the theme - just the song its self.

BUT HAS everyone forgoten about T'Pol? Jolene Blalock is awesome!!

Later...

The theme song is flamin' awful!! It's saccharine song, and makes me want to vomit until my stomach explodes in a cacophony of light and sound... I don't really like that song smiley - tongueout the series is ok though


Enterprise

Disregarding the song entirely (which I long to dosmiley - yuk). I do like the (what do you call it? The word has gone out of my head.) beginning, opening credits, whatever. I guess I could watch it with the mute function on.

Bad news (or good news for Rimmer & Sashimi), it looks like the song is staying. smiley - groan I was surfing and came accross this link http://www.startreksoundtracks.com/sts-performer-watson.html

It would seem that even though there's been negative feed back they are keeping the song anyway. It is interesting that the version in 'Patch Adams' was sung by Rod Steward, because my Dad swore black and blue when he first heard it on 'Enterprise' that it was Rod Stewart singing it. (He's not a big Rod Stewart fan).

I agree, about the theme song, someone screwed up, Big Time, with that "lame a** Bon Jovi wannabe". What strange vision of the 'not too distant future' were they trying to set the stage for, with that cr**?? Certainly one I'd want to be in cryogenic/suspended animation, for the duration of!smiley - smiley Also agree, about Scott Bakula, as Cpt. Johnathan Archer...I hadn't heard, until about 2 weeks before the premiere, who they'd chosen. But,when I found out it was 'my Man!' S.B.,let's just say, he would've been my only real choice. I thought he did a great, & very believable job, on Quahtum Leap (& by the way, that was a great cameo, by Dean Stockwell, as the alien Colonel (General?).) And, along with the rest of the cast, I too, like the dog. He just seems to fit Archer's character. smiley - smiley

Russell Bl**dy Watson is haunting me. Every time I go to work, inevitably his album shows up. (I work in a public library), I'm either lending it out, returning it, or shelving it. Arrrghh!
