Also, there is Starship Farragut on the Web, too. :-)

I know. I've seen several of the fan-based ones out there; some are horrendously done, others are a bit better, some even come close to the quality of the original series (TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, etc.).

Almost forgot: Marina Sirtis does the computer voice (vice the late Majel Barrett), and in the first episode, Michael Forrest reprises his role as Apollo; Lou Ferrigno even has a role in one of the episodes.

I realize this is about the "ST: Beyond", but has anyone seen the web-based series, "Star Trek Continues" (http://www.startrekcontinues.com/episodes.html)?
Only 6 episodes so far (7th one coming early next month), Based on TOS, same characters as TOS, just different actors portraying them. Todd Haberkorn, portraying Spock doesn't look anything even remotely like Nimoy, as did Zachary Quinto in the recent ST movies, but does a reasonably good job nonetheless.
Chris Pine, who portrays Kirk, also doesn't look (or sound) anything like William Shatner's Kirk (except in certain facial expressions and camera angles) and "Mythbusters'" Grant Imahara plays Sulu a bit "over the top" sometimes. However, for the role of LCDR Scott, they have Chris Doohan, son of the original "Mr. Scott", James Doohan.
The series is basically a "continuation" of various episodes from TOS; example:
In Episode 3, "Fairest of Them All", it's told from the Mirror Universe's ("Mirror Mirror") perspective of what happened after Kirk & Co. returned to their universe.
Some ST fans here may like it, others, not so much, but overall, it (seems) well-done and the scoring is (99%) as good as TOS.

Those of you who think President Barack Obama golfs too much probably haven’t this story of the good deed he was able to do one day while out on the links.

It may go down in history as the only good deed of his presidency.

Anyway, this apparently happened in 2012, at the height of the presidential campaign.

Obama and three of his largest donors … er, closest friends … were getting ready for a round of golf.

Let’s see, in 2012, that would probably have been about his 150th round.

But I digress.

“A middle-aged woman was teeing off for her round of golf when she toppled over after swinging too hard,” or so Young Conservatives told us.

“The foursome waiting on the tee happened to include President Obama. Reacting quickly, Obama adroitly ran to the woman and helped her up.

“She thanked him and began to re-tee her ball,” when Obama realized that he should cozy up to this woman as both a voter and a potential donor.

She could, after all, afford to play on a very exclusive golf course.

“By the way,” he said with his best baby-kissing smile, “I’m Barack Obama and I sure hope you vote for me in November.”

She smiled and replied, “I fell on my butt, Mr. President, not on my head,”

The Blonde Cowboy



One day, the local Deputy Sheriff in a Texas town picked up this cowboy - he was butt nekkid except for his boots.

The sheriff cuffs him, covers him with a blanket & puts him in the car and transports him to the local jail.

Once there, he goes through the booking procedure and then asks, "Why were you wandering around town in nothin' but yer boots, boy?"

The cowboy (a blonde) tells the deputy, "Well, it's lahk this. Ah was out at the local waterin' hole havin' a few and in comes the most gorgeous lady ah've ever seen."

"She sits right next to me and we commenced ta havin a few together and talkin' and such, and after a while, she says, 'Why don't y'all come back to mah place?', so ah did."

"We get ta her place, have a few more and talk a bit more and then she up and removes her blouse and invites me ta do the same. So ah did."

"A few more later, she stands up and takes off her jeans & invites me to do the same, so ah did."

"Then she commences ta take off her bra & panties & invites me ta do the same, so ah did."

"Then she lays down on the bed, spreads her legs apart really wide and says, 'Now you go ta town, cowboy'."






So here ah am!"

Uh-oh. Recent close-up photos of Pluto show a possible cause for concern.
