  1. "I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is futile. Your life, has it has been, is over. From this time forward, you will service...us." --Locutus of Borg "Mister Worf...Fire!" --Riker "Best of Both Worlds, Part I" Geordi La Forge and Ro Laren's "coming back from the dead" in "The Next Phase" always brings makes me teary-eyed, it's probably my favorite moment in all of Star Trek. Kira and Odo's first kiss on the Promenade in "His Way" "You're right, who needs dinner?" Chief O'Brien and Captain Sisko interacting with Captain Kirk in "Trials and Tribble-ations" Scotty and Kirk's external tour of the refitted NCC-1701 in The Motion Picture. The Kobayashi Maru in Star Trek II. "How we deal with death is at least as how important as how we deal with life, Mister Saavik." --Kirk Spock's death scene in Star Trek II "He's dead, Jim." --Bones "...Don't try to be a great man, just be a man, and let history judge you." --Riker "That's ridiculous, who said that?" --Zefram Cochrane "You did, fifteen years from now." --Riker paraphrased from "First Contact" There's lots more great moments, lines, etc. in Star Trek, I just can't think of them right now. Star Trek gets a bad wrap because it's very cerebral and technical, very character driven; since there's over six-hundred hours of Trek stories committed to film, miss a few episodes and you very well could be confused as all hell, especially when it comes to DS9. Star Wars, on the other hand, only has 5 movies, so it's far easier to jump into. (Expanded universes of books, etc. don't count here.) Darth Wojo - Who agrees that there are far more good Star Trek films than good Star Wars films, and way more than good movies based on books by J.K. Rowling. If I were crashed on a desert island and could only take all the Star Trek shows and movies or all the Star Wars movies, I wouldn't think twice about taking all the Star Trek stuff, it'd win in a heartbeat. And yes, this desert island has a Tokamak fusion reactor, so I'd be in no fear of losing power. And just why exactly is Stefancos "the deity of all Star Trek deities?" :?: :?: :?: :?:
  2. I think it's funny that there's people on this site that think that "Han Solo & the Princess," also sometimes referred to as "Han and Leia's Love Theme" wouldn't be a love theme just because it's not as "overly romantic" as that of Padme and Anakin, the so-called "Across the Stars." Of course Han and Leia's Theme is a love theme, if it weren't then it wouldn't be referred to by their joint naming! It's not a friendship theme for cryin' out loud! Now take "Luke and Leia's Love Theme," now there's a love theme that isn't passionately romantic, it's more reflective and controlled, as the Skywalker twins reevaluate their relationship. I can understand why Lucas and Williams would argue that the Love Theme of Anakin and Padme is the "first" love theme of the Star Wars dual-trilogy, since their "official" standpoint is of the episodic order, not of the theatrical release order. But I would argue that the love shared by Han and Leia is just as fiery and just as important as that shared by Anakin and Padme. Sure, the love of the latter gave birth to Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa (Solo), two of the three main heroes of the classic trilogy, and hence their love cannot be ignored, but that does not make it so incredibly more important than that of Han and Leia. I mean, if Leia didn't love Han so much, she wouldn't have risked her neck as Boushh to save his life! All three Star Wars love themes have become concert pieces in their own right, it's just "Across the Stars" is the "newest" one to hit audiences, even though it comes "first" in watching the movies from I to VI. Both passionate romantic love themes have about equal prevalance in their respective "middle-of-the-trilogy" films, it's just people will say that Padme and Anakin's Theme is more romantic since it's supposed to be the main plotline of the movie, while in Empire, Han and Leia's love is supposed to be secondary to Vader's mad search for Luke. I still prefer "Han and Leia's Love Theme" to "Anakin and Padme's Love Theme" anyday, probably because I just love the kiss scene in the Falcon's cockpit, and the look on Leia's face as Han is frozen, not to mention the heart-wrenching performance of their love theme at that moment, are priceless. Darth Wojo - Who thinks maybe the reason that Anakin and Padme's love is getting more attention is because in this day and age, a passionate kiss has to have tongue in it, and these two kiss with more tongue than Han and Leia did, and so they must be more in love, even if their acting is staler than that of Ford and Fisher... blah-blah-blah
  3. I played Home Alone (and a few tracks from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra) full blast on my stereo this past December once I was done with Finals and packing to go home for Christmas. Thankfully the people on the floor didn't mind, it was a great way to get in the holiday spirit! Darth Wojo - Who thinks if ever there was a time and place to use the Santa emoticon from the old JW messageboard, it'd be here and now.
  4. Nah, you've got it all wrong! Darth Vader: Obi Wan never told you what happened to your father. Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him! Darth Vader: No... I am your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate! Luke: What's that make us? Darth Vader: Absolutely nothing! Which is what you are about to become. Luke: No, that's not true! It's impossible. Darth Vader: Search your feelings... you know it to be true... Luke: NO!
  5. That's kinda what I thought the first time that I heard it, too, bri40. You can hear the intervals of Luke's Theme (Star Wars Main Title) and you can also pick out those of Vader's Theme, and of Anakin's as well, since they're so closely connected. It is true that the first few notes sound like Hook, but, eh, so what? It happens. It's a good melody to emulate, and it works here. Darth Wojo - Who likes the Anakin/Padme love theme, but was hoping Anakin would get his own singular theme to continue the evolution of Anakin's Theme into the Imperial March, rather than scatter the Imperial March around the score and save a few bars of Anakin's Theme for the end of the End Credits, not to mention saving the Imperial March for its proper full-blown, bombastically fiery debut when Darth Vader is born.
  6. D'oh! I thought registering automatically logged me in! Darth Wojo - Who wants to commend Ricard and The Other Powers That Be for a fine job on rebuilding and resurrecting this site. Bravo!
