  • @cordy74 I really have to wonder why Padme didn't just get the hell out of there when he confessed to mass murder in reply to cordy74 #
  • @cordy74 Qui-Gon had it right from the start: "The ability to speak does not make you intelligent." in reply to cordy74 #
  • @cordy74 It only took you 30 seconds? in reply to cordy74 #
  • @cordy74 I assume the quotes means sarcasm. I'd say more like incessant bad puns and in-jokes in reply to cordy74 #
  • @cordy74 Apparently Obi-Wan has adamantium skin, if Ep III is any indication. He had a huge metal bridge thing fall on him without a scratch in reply to cordy74 #
  • @cordy74 Well, maybe not adamantium. He did get cut. Maybe it's just carbonadium. in reply to cordy74 #
  • @cordy74 The CGI in the cartoon series looks more realistic than most of the stuff in the movies, sadly in reply to cordy74 #

  • RT @blambot: It's an 11,000 lb creature called a Killer Whale. They even put "killer" before "whale" in the name…Why is this surprising? #
  • DO WANT RT @Syfy: I'm giving away Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars on DVD to 2 people who RT this note by 5pm ET on 3/1. G'luck! #
  • @NBCLosAngeles Ah. I didn't realize they hadn't held that yet in reply to NBCLosAngeles #

  • @Quarksbartender Hm. I'll take a crack at it. Dunno if it'll be any good, but I'll give it a shot. lol in reply to Quarksbartender #
  • Conan's on Twitter now. Love his bio. Check him out @ConanOBrien #

  • @Tymethief @spookannie the wireless card in my laptop burned out about a year or so back and I had to get a USB one to replace it; cost $40 #
  • @Tymethief That's part of why I got myself a netbook… I wanted something for web, email, & word processing to replace the laptop in reply to Tymethief #
  • @aprilhebert Funny thing about that day: I wore that for a costume contest, and people kept thinking I worked at the Experience in reply to aprilhebert #
  • @aprilhebert I just went along with it… said I was a Starfleet science officer attached to the Dept of Temporal Investigations… in reply to aprilhebert #
  • @aprilhebert originally from 2310 but transplanted through a temporal rift to 2375, now on detached duty to the Time Station. lol in reply to aprilhebert #
  • @wilw Looks like some of the stuff found in my place. Such august company! in reply to wilw #
  • @recoveringwuss I've got tons of pics from the Experience – never know who you'll find in them in reply to recoveringwuss #
  • STILL WANT RT @Syfy Reminder: I'm giving away FARSCAPE: THE PEACEKEEPER WARS on DVD to 2 random people who RT this note by 5pm ET on 3/1. #
  • @blambot Sweet! I'm sending my first issue to the printer this weekend and that font's perfect for what I need! in reply to blambot #
  • Awesome day at work: caught 3 boys beating the crap out of a 4th, then had a kid shine a laser pointer in my eye. All in first 90 mins. #fb #
  • I know several teen girls who need to hear this RT @afoolishwit Did You Know?: It's now possible to breathe WITHOUT talking. Yes, really. #
  • That's exactly what I was going for @Quarksbartender http://tweetphoto.com/12424019 reminds me of a poster for The Blob #YesKillI #
  • @spookannie shouldn't that be "Danke Gott heute ist Freitag"? :p in reply to spookannie #
  • Today's meat-free lunch: teriyaki tofu bowl. Actually pretty good. #
  • I have been informed by the other students that it's apparently my fault the kid who shined the laser pointer in my eye was arrested #
  • @ConanOBrien We could have told you that withut the need for a sharpie in reply to ConanOBrien #
  • My hope for the future is renewed. At Taco Bell and a group of teens here is having a serious conversation on theology. I'm impressed. #fb #
  • @walshcaitlin I just wish Star Trek: The Experience was still open in the first place in reply to walshcaitlin #
  • What?! I passed 1701 tweets unremarked?! For SHAME! #
  • @Tymethief I get so carried away commenting on Life, the Universe, and Everything that I lose track of how many tweets I'm actually tweeing in reply to Tymethief #
  • @Tymethief I'm halfway tempted to end each tweet with the name of the Constitution-class ship with that registry… in reply to Tymethief #
  • @Tymethief Yes. Yes, it does. in reply to Tymethief #
  • Oh, heck… to catch up: Constitution 1700; Enterprise 1701; Farragut 1702; Lexington 1703; Yorktown 1704; Excalibur 1705; Exeter 1706 #
  • Hood/Ranger 1707; Intrepid 1708; Lexington 1709 #
  • (you may have noticed there's some conflicting data on some registries…) Kongo 1710 #
  • 1703 was also listed for the Hood… to deconflict, I'll just say Hood 1703, Ranger 1707, Lexington 1709. Potemkin 1711 #
  • Interestingly, there's no ship name assigned to 1712 #
  • Nor to 1713 #
  • But then we have the Monitor 1714 #
  • and the Merrimac 1715 #
  • The Endeavour is listed as both 1716 (Ships of the Star Fleet) and 1895 (Star Trek VI)… possibly different ships with the same name #
  • Yorktown is both 1704 and 1717. Starfleet sure seems to have gone through a lot of these ships and recycled the names… #
  • The first Excelsior was 1718, though more are familiar with 2000, the first of the Excelsior class #
  • Another name with multiple NCC registries is the USS Eagle, with 956 (Star Trek VI), 1719 (Ships of the Star Fleet), AND 1738 (FASA) #
  • We don't get another listing until 1727 with the Essex (Ships of the Star Fleet), but it also is listed as 1719 (FASA) and 1697 (ST:Encyc) #
  • After that, only Defiant 1764 ("Tholian Web"); it was also listed as 1717 (Ships of the Star Fleet), but Yorktown takes precedence #
  • And with that, I'm done spamming your Twitter feed with useless Trek trivia. #
  • @walshcaitlin I solved that with some teriyaki tofu. It's not meat, but it tastes like it in reply to walshcaitlin #
  • @walshcaitlin Ugh. That's no fun. Hope you feel better soon. in reply to walshcaitlin #
