Introducing the Pyramid Table version of the Agree, Disagree forum. Author posts a statement that you either agree or disagree with giving a brief description for your choice followed by a new statement.

NS: The cast of nu Star Trek did a good job of infusing qualities of the original ST cast as well as establishing their own unique characteristics providing a good bridge between new fans and old fans.

Pretty much agree. The movie was a decent hit, if not a blockbuster. I've met several young people online whose first contact with Trek was the new movie, and who've gone on to enjoy the original shows since. So the new movie is attracting new fans to the franchise.

(This game'll probably attract more interest if the statements aren't too complicated.)

NuBSG is better than the original.

Agreed. In every measurable way; drama, special effects, character development, plausibility, etc. It's just a better show.
Not to say TOS doesn't have it's place, mind you. IMO, it is still fun family centered entertainment (I grew up watching it with my family; I still have much affection for it as well). But NuBSG is far superior in every way; absolutely! :cylonclap:


New Statement:
The Star Wars prequels (including the Clone Wars CGI cartoons) are (ultimately) hollow, superficial, slickly-made but weak entries in the Star Wars universe that (for me) detract from the Star Wars brand name, rather than add to it. In hindsight, I'd have rather that Lucas just made the original trilogy (New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi) and left it at that. It was better to have not seen what happened, because the prequels I saw in my mind's eye were MUCH better!

(Edit: Sorry about the 'complicated' statement; that's how I roll... :P )

Almost completely agree but for me only up to the last 20 minutes of Revenge Of The Sith. I liked what they did with Ben and Vader. Phantom Menace was horrific.

NS: Blade Runner really is where it all started.

Pretty much agree. Blade Runner's epic.

NS: Story arcs are better than episodic shows.

I agree, I just wish the rest of the world would aswell:)

My Star Trek presentation today will turn into a fiasco making me the loser kid of the class for the first time in my life.

Disagree. You seem to have the ability to warp through any situation :thumbsup:

The speculation regarding Caprica's future has grown tiresome.

Agreed. For my two cents, I'd just as soon wait until January....

strictly speaking - agree
(yet the telephone pales in comparison to TV or radio)

a direct brain to brain communication will eventually replace regular communication (replacing the "translation" into concepts like words and images, the same way a computer calculates in its own language - and only at the very end translates its result into displays or sounds if it wants to interact with a non connected entity ... in other wors will math replace other "means of human communication")

Disagree. Anything's possible if you look far enough into the future, but I can't picture that happening unless the human race undergoes major psychological changes, the type it would take tens of thousands if not millions of years to produce.

Yes! You can put on more cloths, but only take off so many *OH MY*

NuCenturions were under utilized in the show. They could have been much more "terminator" like always attacking, no matter what. They were not as impressive as they could have been.

More or less agree. They could have done a lot more damage than they did.

A manned mission to Mars will happen in the next 30 years.

Agree I guess? They are a good band. 7/10 although I haven't listened to them in ages.

JJ Abrams' new series Undercovers will be awesome.

Disagree; something tells me that it'll be too much like his other stuff (such as ALIAS).



The holodeck was one of the WORST plot crutches of all of the post-TOS Star Trek series...

Disagree. they didn't use it all that much in the grand scheme of things.







Firefly was too short lived for such a awesome show?

Totally agree. I still don't get that one.

The GOP is set to make a comeback in November thanks to two lack luster years by the Dems.
