Okay, here's the promised early update this evening. I will catch up on any new developments when I return. And behave while I'm gone… I know how much liquor is in each of those bottles.

Yeah, but did you hear the idea for the movie? The prequel to the first Star Trek, where they meet and such?
Yeah, they likely believe that with Abrams working in sly nods to "the faithful" (like a 'kobyashi maru' scene w/kirk perhaps), the core fan base will be sated and see it a bunch of times. Hopefully he'll be swift enough to steer towards something that is a good accessible movie first, and a trek movie second. IMHO, that's why First Contact succeeded - it was a good action/horror mix that could've worked (with some tweaking of course) outside of the trek realm entirely.

WOW! What a great read!

Yeah, he doesn't write like a five year old, which makes a pleasant change from almost every gaming site in the world (Blue's News not included of course :)).

I have managed to sit out the current generation of PC games (from BF2 onwards) partly through lack of hardware (though upgrade roadmap is being drawn up :)) and partly through lack of time. But when I have a capable computer, I look forward to trawling through Oblivion...


Fredrickson, your blog is awesome too.

Its expected long time producers Rick Berman and Brannon Braga will not be involved and their proposed plans for an eleventh feature, including a script by Erik Jendresen, have been scrapped.

THANK GOD! Paramount FINALLY got the hint?!?!


Heh, I was a pretty big Voyager fan and I had always wished they weren't involved with that show. The show at least didn't loose its marbles towards the end (like DS9) but hell...that the only ST series I ever got into, I disliked all the movies, and couldn't stand Enterprise.

B&B being taken off the project gives me cause to hope they'll at least have the opportunity to put the show on the right track again.

Not only are they going do just like Enterprise and completely destroy any of the reality and totally contradict what we already know, but it has going to have to suck. Spock was Spock, Kirk was Kirk, etc….I do not want to see other people playing them. Do NOT ruin them damn it. That is the problem with the entertainment industry…they never know when to walk away. Always doing more and more to make stuff ‘better’ but they just ruin it.

Well, in the history of airplane hijackings, what percentage of hijackers are muslims versus everyone else?

That's actually an interesting question. Relying on Wikipedia's partial list of airplane hijackings (counting planes hijacked, not individuals (not enough info there)):

Muslim: 16, 1 failed, 1 strange
Non-muslin: 15, 2 failed

The "strange" one was an Iranian flight attendant who hijacked a Kish airline flight, forced it to land in Israel, and eventually received asylum in Canada. So he may have been Muslim (it's unclear), but it's not what you'd call a typical hijacking.

The Wikipedia list (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_hijacking) is partial, but based on it I'd say that the answer to your question is "about 50%".

Wnd.com is some kinda ultra right-wing website. So they purposefully wanted to link the idea of the Arab race being a race of hijackers.

Throw 'Arab', 'Airline', and 'Hijacks' into any news header and you're guaranteed some attention.

Well, there's only so much Nigerian transvestite midget bukkake a man can stomach. I got through two, maybe three images before yodelling down the porcelain megaphone. If the producers of Fear Factor need an episode idea I will direct them to your site, 'k?
