        There is nothing even remotely stimulating or monumental about 
any of the Star Trek shit.  The hole evolutionary concept that all races 
stemmed from humanoid-like ancestors is so innanely stupid--a bad excuse 
for cheap stage cosmetics.  If you are gonna do dinos on TV at least get 
their classification right.  I hate trekkies.
