The Star Trek Universe

I’m always humbled to write a script idea and Star Trek Repulse is no exception.

I was able to write most of the story line today and it’s a real tear jerker to Star Trek fans.

Fueled by a need for revenge, a technology we haven’t seen before, and a death count in the billions, Starfleet faces an enemy that will stop at nothing until they are destroyed.

The Qutarians start a conflict that Captain John Burton hopes to bring to an end. He’s lost his parents and is now forced to return to the planetary system where they died. Unfortunately, his new ship now bares the name of Repulse. The same ship that had been destroyed along with his parents all those years ago.

Lansu won’t forget. He won’t forget about a wayward nacelle crashing into his settlement on Delvian 2 and taking the life of his beloved wife Kara. The Qutarians want revenge. They build a massive ship to fulfill that purpose.

Armed with a “phase based” technology Lansu begins a crusade of destruction. Destroying whole worlds, he begins to make the Federation pay for what they have done.

When Lansu destroys Captain John Burton’s home world and his aunt and uncle, the need for revenge becomes the “pulse” of John Burton’s command decisions.

Armed with a small Federation Starship, John Burton has a score to settle.

The battle for Earth’s survival begins with…

U.S.S. Repulse

Amazing Robbery

These folks are thinkers and doers…

STOCKHOLM – Masked gunmen used a stolen helicopter and explosives to engineer a spectacular raid on a cash depot in Stockholm on Wednesday, breaking into the building through the roof and flying off with bags of cash, police and officials said.
The daring pre-dawn heist stunned police in the Swedish capital, who were unable to deploy their own helicopters to the scene because suspected explosives had been placed at their hangar.
The security company that owns the facility, G4S PLC, said the thieves had made off with “an unconfirmed sum of money” and added it would offer a large reward for information leading to their arrest and the return of the loot. The company did not give an exact amount for the reward.

I suggest you click here and read the whole article. I’m not advocating robbing a bank but just pointing out how well thought out this was.

If robbers can do this just imagine what terrorists could do?

Joke of the Month

Sent to me via my buddy Rich…

Guy goes into a bar, there’s a robot bartender.

The robot says, “What will you have?”

The guy says, “Martini.”

The robot brings back the best martini ever and says to the man, “What?s your IQ?”

The guy says, “168”.

Th e robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.

The guy leaves, but he is curious, so he goes back into the bar.

The robot bartender says, “What will you have?”

The guy says, “Martini”.

Again, the robot makes a great martini, gives it to the man and says, “What?s your IQ?

The guy says, “100.”

The robot then starts to talk about NASCAR, Budweiser and John Deere tractors.

The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time. He goes back into the bar.

The robot says, “What will you have?”

The guy says, “Martini”, and the robot brings him another great martini.

The robot then says, “What?s your IQ”

The guy says, “Uh, about 50.”

The robot leans in real close and says, “So, you people still happy you voted for Obama?”

Drive-By Blogging

Just a quick post and a reflection on what an elected representative is “supposed” to do.

You shouldn’t care about what a candidate feels about gun control, abortion, taxes, or anything else for that matter.

Yes. I just said that. Why?

Because we live in a Republic and not a Democracy. There is a difference.

Our elected officials (notice I don’t use “leader”) are supposed to do exactly what we tell them to. That’s why we shouldn’t call them leaders. They aren’t supposed to be leading anything. What they should be doing is exactly and precisely what we tell them to and nothing more.

They are supposed to be a servant of the people they represent. If I am concerned about a candidate’s position on gun control then I’m missing the point. We have seriously gotten away from what elected officials are supposed to be and what they are supposed to be doing.

Because we have been doing it wrong all of these years, now I really do have to worry about a candidate’s position on something.

This post is simply a vent. We can’t even get the basics correct and now we want those elected folks to “fix” our healthcare system?

Have we as a society completely lost our freakin’ minds or have we all gotten so lazy that we forget who forged the nation that we now take stewardship of?

If I were running for office, I believe my press conference would go something like this…

Me: Hi. My name is Mike Williams and I’m running for office.

Press: How do you feel about the healthcare debate?

Me: Really doesn’t matter now does it?

Press: I don’t understand.

Me: I’m not running for me. I’m running for you. I’m running to represent you and your neighbors views.

Press: So, you don’t have an opinion on the healthcare debate then?

Me: Why should I? Like I said. I represent you. You’d be better off asking yourself that question.

Press: What about gun control?

Me: Again, how do YOU feel about gun control? I have an opinion and it will be whatever the voters say it is. Have a nice day.

Too Busy to Live

That’s how I describe this week.

When you are so caught up in everyone else’s gig that you don’t even have time to connect with someone or watch the Apple launch yesterday then it’s time to take a break.
