And this is the simple answer. teacha.gif

Actually reading the original question, he wants to know why the bridge is located in such a vulnerable spot.

My answer would be that we know from the original series that the ship was mostly built from plywood and styrofoam, so it doesn't really matter where they put it.

A bit let down with what I read, especially regarding John Harrison.

Yeah, I'm somewhat deflated. But I love Cumberbatch as Sherlock, so hopefully he will make a great baddie.

They have to be able to SEEEEEE out the windows. Nevermind being able to have cameras and sensors relay all that info down to a protected area...no sir.

Clip time.

In.

I can't believe they'd put that clip out. Chris Pine just doesn't have it.

In general or do you just feel he's not a good "Kirk"?

I have been happy with him in the role so far. I like that he's not trying too hard to mimic all the little nuances that Shatner gave the role.

He could do a good job playing Kirk arguing with his mother about his curfew.

Bollocks. He's great in this role.

He's awful. And don't tell me he's supposed to be the "young Kirk." Pine is only a couple years younger than Shatner was when he first played Kirk. He's never going to "grow up" because he couldn't if he tried.

Besides the tried "he's not shatner" argument - please elaborate. Why is he not a good Kirk?

Because he has no presence. No air of authority, no weight, no gravitas. He doesn't look, act, or sound like a leader. Awful--just awful. I can't think of a better word.

Did you ever see the episode of The Next Generation where Picard got shrunk into a child? The kid who played him did a better job.

You asked him out and he rebuffed you, right? wink.gif

I like him. Disagree with all you said.
