mikailborg: I can't even remember what event I was attending, but I must have been taking it seriously. (orbiting)
I don't even know who won the Super Bowl. As the "Mythbusters" marathon unreeled in the background, I spent the day doing laundry and dishes, finding our digital camera which has been lost for three months, and making a little box for the new kitten's food bowl. The box has an opening through which only she should be able to fit, therefore keeping the other cats from stealing her kitten food. Older cats seem to love kitten food.

Anyway, the Internet's allowed me to catch up on some of the Super Bowl movie trailers. J.J. Abrams has done me a favor, I think; it's finally gotten through my head that this is not the Star Trek I grew up on, and that I need to stop worrying and just go along for the ride, or not. Right now, I'm still on the side of giving it a shot - if nothing else, it's audacious, and the franchise needs "audacious" badly. Besides, I'm a bit impressed with their method of crowbarring this story into 40 years of canon whether it ought to fit or not.

Plus, Enterprise appears to have a LOT of firepower these days. In that one half-second clip, she seems to be absolutely dumping phasers and photorps on whatever's upset her. Battletech players, remember the "alpha strike"? "Screw the heat, screw the ammo, fire everything!!!"

Having said that: the Ninth Doctor as the arms-dealing mastermind behind Cobra is awesome, but I already miss his mask. And the Baroness' bodysuit. Also, Land of the Lost didn't look too bad, once we take out the bits with 20-century junk lying around. And the bits with Will Ferrell. Oh, wait...
