Re: The (ugh!) "Voyager" dino-show...
Would you rather they spent the dollars it would take to make totally
human aliens on such things or have them spent on the dinos of JP and LW?
As a dino-lurker I prefer the latter and keep hoping they will listen to
Horner a little more but keep making dino movies. It's as close to seeing a
dino as I will ever get!
