The Reimagined V TV Show Video: Reptiles and Lizards oh my! V for Chickens! Stiletto Heels and Aliens!
Thursday, May 14, 2009
Being still relatively new to SOL 3 I had never been to what they call a “movie”. The group I went to the movie Star Trek with when learning of my lack of experience then started a chant as we purchased our documents (called “tickets”) they chanted “virgin Eye Candy”. I can only imagine what they would chant if they could pronounce my real name!
After acquiring the proper documents to enter the movie we instead coordinated an attack upon another booth (this is called “lining up”) to find more food to consume (we had already consumed massive amounts of food and beverages proceeding this occasion). However as I researched “going to the movies” prior this event I was already prepared! SOL 3 is fond of eating nebulas worth of what they call “popcorn” while going to a movie. During my research I discovered beverages called “pop” a bubbly (carbonated) sugar saturated beverage (bubbly sugar water). I also ascertained information on “corn” a kind of cereal plant sold in what is called “ears” (can you imagine? You can’t make this kind of thing up!)
Anyways, in an attempt to better understand SOL 3 inhabitants I purchased a glass of pop and placed my earlier purchase of an “ear of corn” in the glass with the bubbly sugar water. It was a peculiar beverage that certainly attracted much attention from others (something I am rather familiar with). It was a peculiar cocktail which would have been enhanced with another flavor of luster lip-bar (see right sidebar), however I digress.
We found our seats in the theater which was crowded by many persons. The stranger I sat beside greeted me by saying “live long and prosper.” I am uncertain if this was an insight as to my present condition or a proposed desirable outcome.
The lights dimmed as I sipped my popcorn beverage and the presentation began. Advertisements for many undesirable forms of humor or entertainment were offered followed by the “main attraction”.
Star Trek is from the entertainment genera named science fiction. Really rather silly attempts to project feasible concepts and characters into future situations with more advanced technology, and even cognitively identity aware intelligent alien species! Can you imagine?
After viewing the movie Star Trek I then viewed every television episode and movie of the series on the way out of the theater transacted through the Hyper-network (see right sidebar) to enhance the experience and my knowledge base on the subject.
I have concluded that the movie had glitzy special effects that were at times seemingly trying too hard similarly to a newbie shroud-kiss (see right sidebar). Indeed the effects at times seemed to distract from the movie itself almost as if they were trying to take over everything. However the technology representation was creatively embossed within the movie structure enhancing the believability for those on SOL 3. This is important for science fiction to accomplish; the science must have veracity for it to support the fiction.
Zachary Quinto (Sylar of Heroes) presented a masterful portrayal of Spock which added depth to the persona. This performance perhaps took the shine off that of Chris Pine in regards to Captain James T. Kirk. The rest of the cast was acceptable with the possible exceptions of Zoe Saldaña as Uhura who seemed stilted and awkward plus Eric Bana as the villain Nero who seemed to be trying just a bit too hard which led his performance to not being believable (once again see shroud-kiss on the right sidebar).
The time travel concept was delivered rather awkwardly, needing more than one voiceover to explain the situation which cannot be seen as good.
The integration of the character development seemed to be rather stunted as an overarching premise. Spock and Kirk were seemingly worked over but yet came back lacking (that being said Zachary Quinto was very good).
Overall it would be quaint to those of us from off SOL 3 yet to those on the planet that enjoy science fiction or are Trekkies the movie should be considered a “must see”. For those who are not from those two categories it may fall into the “I had too much Romulan ale to drink last night” category.
Taking all of this into consideration it seems unfortunate that it was decided to re-imagine the original Star Trek begging’s and to not try something new that could use the Star trek concept as a launch pad for exploration to go boldly where no Teuto-Trans-Zenith Authority Harem Member had ever gone before.

I was luxuriating in the experience among these wondrous trees of pink when I heard in whispered masculine Japanese “I cannot see the blossoms as your beauty blinds the eyes.” Now certainly I have heard words similar to these on innumerable occasions but it still received my attention. I turned to see past the magically showering blossoms to behold what at first appeared to be an exotic drink attendant from the Enchantra Water Music Festival Celebratory Gala! Imagine my excitement at contemplating that perhaps one of those pursuing me may have ventured to follow me to this location in the hinterlands of the Multiverse.
However it was then that I realized that this was actually a local denizen in his own time period! He was what is referred to as a samurai, it was at this moment that I was thankful for recently applying Tantaliza Lustre Lip-paint.***
As the samurai walked towards me crushing the wonderfully delicate pink petals beneath his Bushidō stride I thought how charming he was in his armor holding his cute sword in his hand. He seemed ever so delicate among the sensual trees, quite intoxicating really! I almost used the stereotypical question “what are you a Cerulean Tussah merchant?” as the moment was so packed with drama, dreamy!
Soon after he complimented me upon my lustrous lips we began a delightful conversation about blossoms, gardens, tea and other such agreeable matters. We were both enchanted by the cherry blossom tree and its palace of petals, he preferred rather simple symbolic or even mystical gardens and although I admit that such a garden may have its charms I do prefer something with drama and scale such as JaQiNa 5 with its rather natural virgin garden on a global scale with lots of water, we were agreeable about tea although it seems that their tea ceremony is a rather quiet affair without a pool party or conversations concerning the Procreative Wars, Thought Wars, or Prime Pellucid Axiom’s!
I thought it imperative that I should then enlighten my samurai pink petal boy (well they were covering each of us like some sort of veil or such!) He seemed to like poetry but of course was unaware of the Multiverse so I shared some thoughts including Prime Pellucid Axiom #42 “The beauty of the eyes need travel no further than the beauty of the lips”. Well needless to say he then increased the romantic allusions with what he called a tanka:
Silver, or gold, or jewels?
How could they ever
Equal the greater treasure
That is a child? They can not.
Well it was all fine until he brought children into his intentions after all we had just met and I am no shroud-kiss (can you imagine?)! I was then suspicious that he was a proponent of the Procreative Wars but after further conversation it was clear he had mentioned such a thing as he thought I would find it desirable.
I have found this curious on SOL 3 and in need of some investigation. Some females of the dominant mammalian (land) species deliberately force themselves to wait in procreation past their healthy child birthing years then attempt a trapeze act of intervention methods to manufacture pregnancy. Some other females seem to jump at the opportunity to become an incubator.
There is even a current story being carried over the cute local SOL 3 news sources about a woman mysteriously named Octo-Mom at first I presumed she was a supporter of Echelon Gender Continuity Theory. She has no masculine partner with six children and then went through medical treatment and delivered eight more children. Just so we are clear said female is of the superior land mammalian species (humans) and is not a K-9 (I should interject here that K-9’s love Tantaliza Lustre Lip-paint so you should have many opportunities to pet puppies if you wear it on SOL 3!)
Now Octo-Mom is apparently being offered a local currency of $1 million to “star” in what they call a “porno movie” (keep in mind that SOL 3 lacks Pleasure Threads). Many are now attempting to guess what a film of this nature would be named in these kinds of circumstances. Yes I understand that to those of us in the more advanced and sophisticated parts of the Multiverse find the concept of a pornographic film to be simply revoltingly boring but SOL 3 is a primitive cultural and ethical backwater.
However darlings I digress, I told my samurai suitor to concentrate more upon the jewels and not the children for now (imagine if I explained to him about Pleasure Threads!).
It was at that moment that several other samurai’s encircled us and began to attack us so I relieved my cherry blossom samurai of his sword and performed an improvised form of the Teuto-Trans-Zenith Dalliance Dance and thus disposed of the threat with red blood dripping from the blade upon the pink pathway.
I cleaned the blood off the blade before returning it to him (he seemed rather mystified which was endearing) then I took a “photograph” of my samurai, gave him a lingering kiss under the lovely cherry blossoms and then requested a Hyper-time-delineation transfer to the present from Pleasura Travel and that was when my adventures went awry! In upcoming articles I will expand upon my adventures with our dear sponsors through time and space over the past several months.

The crime and folly of the court of Ravenna was expiated a third time by the calamities of Rome. The king of the Goths, who no longer dissembled his appetite for plunder and revenge, appeared in arms under the walls of the capital; and the trembling senate, without any hopes of relief, prepared by a desperate resistance to delay the ruin of their country. But they were unable to guard against the secret conspiracy of their slaves and domestics, who either from birth or interest were attached to the cause of the enemy. At the hour of midnight the Salarian gate was silently opened, and the inhabitants were awakened by the tremendous sound of the Gothic trumpet. Eleven hundred and sixty-three years after the foundation of Rome, the Imperial city, which had subdued and civilized so considerable a part of mankind, was delivered to the licentious fury of the tribes of Germany and Scythia.
- - The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by English Historian Edward Gibbon
In recent days it seems that many here on SOL 3 have been speaking of The Decline and Fall of the American Empire. However as the nation state of the United States does not qualify as an empire this seems to be rather presumptuous and is perhaps the product of ignorance, malcontent or guilt ridden loquaciousness.
It does raise the question as to a long term geo-political powers potential descent from such power, is the collapse of the United States imminent? As we have seen across the Multiverse Galactic Empires, Dominions, Unions, Federations, Alliances etc do collapse for many reasons. Even our own Sublime Hegemony is alert to the potential for conflict with the Teuto-Trans-Zenith Authority (of course the potential for collapse from within the Hegemony has been statistically proven to be highly unlikely).
SOL 3 historian Michael Grant in his book The Fall of the Roman Empire has divided the demise of the Roman Empire into intriguing sections:
1) The Generals against the State
2) The People against the Army
3) The Poor against the State
4) The Rich against the State
5) The Middle Class against the State
6) The People against the Bureaucrats
7) The People against the Emperor
8) Ally against Ally
9) Race against Race
10) Drop-outs against Society
11) The State against Free Belief
12) Complacency against Self-Help
13) The Other World against This World
14) Some Religious Disunities (Catholic Against Orthodox)
I have found myself of late meditating upon these various possibilities. It seems comparisons between the Roman Empire and the present day United States do hold some similar intriguing parameter delineations yet I would not with that surmise the collapse of the United States is imminent (of course one of the over arching geo political factors completely missing from Mr. Grant’s premise is the Super Factor of Gossip).
I am uncertain as to which factors most SOL 3 inhabitants would indicate as the prime movers in this situation.
