Now that it's mentioned, I can tell that it's Will. His jaw and shoulders aren't Rikk like. But, I too made the mistake that Rikk was being absurdly blunt. For Rikk, anyway.

Whereas I'm quite "getting into" Enterprise, and love the ST:TNG reruns available every week night, the latest movies aren't doing anything for me. I'm quite puzzled by the fact that I've not seen Insurrection _at all_ since it came out several years ago, now. I'm hoping Nemesis is worthwhile, but I...

Okay. I'm surprised. All that about Dr Why, rather The Professor (as I'd suspected all along), wearing a _disguise_ is true! Hokey smoke! So The General knows of The Professor. They're both time travelers, and the latter is "collecting historical figures to form and army". Sounds like "The War Games...

No comments from me today. Just wanted to agree with a few things mentioned. If Rumy is dead, I have no doubt she'll stay that way. The same goes for anyone else that gets toasted. As for the lack of FIB backup, and the idea that Dr Why _is_ the backup, that would explain a lot. He could still be an...

You're right about the absence of overt vengence in the General's actions. But the only continuationof Rikk's sentence that makes sense is what he stands for. In the confrontation with Muttly and Scuddler (or whatever) we saw that his _True Faith_ is Fandom. Fandom is what he stands for. And if T's ...

Meant to post this yesterday, but with the board playing up... "Thinking about it last night, and I think I know what The General is trying to accomplish. Not to stop her alternate selves. Not even to (primarily) insure the conditions that caused her to exist. And it has nothing to do with being dep...

151 "antihero" wn "WordNet (r) 1.6" antihero n : a protagonist who lacks the characteristics that would make him a hero (or her a heroine) Sometimes dictionaries just don't live up to your hopes.

Interestingly, the "image" that comes to me most strongly when thinking about Foundation never occurs in any of the stories. The painting that was produced for Forwards the Foundation, with Hari Seldon holding the Prime Radiant and Trantor sprawling beneath him, is burned into my brain. There's a ne...

The Doctor's been known the bend the Laws of Time to save a person's life from time to time. Since Rikk was killed in the alternate universe we saw, I suspect that it'll be Rumy we lose in this one, as she tries to defend Rikk. And when the crossover occurs, uh oh. And of course, that's why Dr Why i...

Well, the Hyperman arc in general did little for me, but wasn't a boardie when it was unfolding. I must agree, and applaud T for building a story and character with such strength that we care so much.

True, Czhorat. I was just trying to gauge if this was the end of the begining of the end, or whether it was going to stretch out a bit more. Also of interest will be if this is a "one day war", as is a popular way of plotting these days, or if this will be progress through the next weeks and months ...

The General has now initated an action. It occured when Rikk and the Skifies on average stopped defending Fandom. Kath will curse her before this day is out. The alien invasion has been averted. Dr. Why is still in the car, as far as we know. Stu's reaction isn't seen, though we can make some good g...

Nay.

Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer.

Also, about the abuse of process. Will was out of line suggesting that this vote be called now, when Rikk is seeing red. Democratic processes only work propperly when people can be objective.

RabidWookie, T mentioned a little while back that this showdown was taking place outside of the building Guth and Jackie were in.
