Chief, I have just finished reading ASK THE CHIEF 03-20-98 and have a =

few comments on several subjects.

DEFIBRILLATORS USED ON WOMEN



On the subject of DEFIBRILLATORS USED ON WOMEN, Chad's Comments, and =

his crucifixion by the guild...

=20

I agree with him, his question was valid. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN =



A DEFIBRILLATOR USED ON A WOMAN? This is in my opinion a question of =

Nitpicker Quality. After all of the discussion about defibrillators and =

the improper use of them, this question is going to come up.

=20


Chad is in my eyes as much a pervert for asking this question as THE =

CHIEF is for commenting on Troi's "Bunny Suit" (No offense Chief).

=20

But I diverge, back to the question, I've never in all my thousands of =


hours of Television and Movie viewing have seen a DEFIB used on a woman, =

except for THE ABYSS [but as I recall she was clothed, and that in =

itself is a MED-nit (Medical Nit)].

=20


I believe several Nitpickers owe Chad an apology.

=20


Note to Callie: I'm not a woman, but I hope I could spot a weirdo if I =

saw one. :-)

Star Wars Guide



I don't much care for the idea of a SW guide. I liked SW, I enjoyed SW, =

but SW ain't no Star Trek. I might flip through it to read the nits for =

the three movies, but myself being a SW novice won't be interested in =

typos in Comic Books or some authors weird descriptions on Space =

Oddities. I wouldn't be interested in shelling out my hard earned money =

to buy a book which contains 80% information I don't care about.=20

=20

But before my membership in the Nitpickers Guild is revoked, I like the =



TNG and DS9 Guides. When I'm bored I'll just pick up a guide a flip =

through and enjoy a good read. In my opinion, the next guide should be =

Trek guide, like DS9 II or Voyager, or even a Combo Guide with DS9, TNG =

Movies, and VOY (that would increase the Fan base you reach).

=20

Not complaining, just commenting.



=20

DS9 and TNG Era TREK

a.k.a. everybody hates DS9 except me

After reading the comments on DS9 and how everyone hates it, I feel that =

I have to share my opinion. <> :-?

=20

DS9 is the best of the TNG Era Shows, it has everything a viewer could =

want:


1.. 3-D dimensional characters (no 'yessir' crew members here even =

the ensigns are bucky)=20

2.. Good Writing. (No sex-based stories here aka Lisa XXXXXXX VOY =

writer with SEX on the brain. DS9 has Moore and Behr (and formerly =

Wolfe))=20

3.. A Continuing Plot ( No Plant-of-the-Week)=20

4.. NO Kazon (and yes I know the Kazon are gone, I done watch the =

Show.=20


5.. Beautiful Visual Effects (no Anomaly-of-the-Week)=20

6.. Reoccurring Characters (on Voyagers side for once the show's =

Formula prevent this so I guess VOY gets a Handicap)

Final Score

DS9..........6

VOY.........1 (with a handicap)

=20

The Division of 2-Hour Episodes



Cuts that I know of:

DS9


Way of the Warrior

-the Opening Credits scene with Bashir and O'Brien eating sand =

peas/Quark comments about noise in the Bar (this is the major one I know =

of in this episode.)

-some of the useless scenes aka cuts in the Battle FX? (maybe =

not?)


TNG

All Good Things...

-Picard/Q in the Pasteur's Ready Room? (it's been a few years =

and like WOTW my copy of this is the 2-hour version, luckily, I mean who =

could stand to miss such lines as:

Q: "What did you say 'You want your mommy'?" . :-)

=20

VOY

Caretaker

-(my copy is the 2-hour one once again ... I guess I like Trek =

in a Feature Sized Portion.

=20


Thanks for your Time

Open-Door Policies On Star Ships

Cuts In Two Hour Episodes and "The Menagerie"


Beginning with Robert J. Woolley's comments in the

3/20/98 column

Subject: A Few Points


Okay, various topics this time:
When I referred to the "Classic Star Wars" I was referring to the Dark Horse

series which reprints the Goodwin/Williamson comic strips from the early

1980s. These are readily availiable in three volumes from Dark Horse.
I vote for the entries listed in chronological order, with a sidebar listing

them by release date.

I assume that, if it works out with copyrights, that "Nitpicker's Guide for

Star Wars" is the default title (if it is do I get the autographed copy?

j/k), since this is the simplist, most recognizable title, the best from a

marketing and sales standpoint I'd think. But if the problem is the copyright

of the term "Star Wars" then any use of that term, such as "Star Wars Fans"

would be a problem. There is a book called "The Ultimate Unauthorized Star

Wars Trilogy Trivia Challenge." So there's an instance of the use of "Star

Wars" in the title there.

That said here's a few more suggestions.

The Nitpicker's Guide to George Lucas

The Nitpicker's Guide to Blue Harvest (fake working title for ROTJ)

The Nitpicker's Guide: Special Edition (pictures of Millenium Falcon, X-Wing,

Star Destroyer, and a Death Star on the cover so there is no mistake what this

book covers)

The Nitpicker's Guide for a Galaxy Far, Far Away (again pictures to clear up

any doubt. Don't want anyone to think this is about a Tom Cruise movie.)

The Special Edition Nitpicker's Guide for a Galaxy Far, Far Away (or any other

combination thereof)

Okay, on to something new: Numbering "The Menagerie"
As far as considering "The Menagerie" as one episode there is some classic

trickery here, and a lot of revisionism. There are a few grand myths

associated with the Original Star Trek. One is Kirk sleeping with a lot of

women (In actuality only a handful, but certainly NOT one every episode).

Another is the phrase "Beam me up, Scotty," which was never used in such form.

And then there is the "fact" that there are 79 TOS episodes. Well, quite

frankly, this is not quite true. When the show was sold into syndication,

there were 79 episodes. This number became quite well known, even legendary.

Everyone knows there are 79 TOS episodes. That's the benchmark. TNG

celebrated passing it with "Legacy." DS9's 80th episode was approprately

called "Starship Down." Even Voyager managed to make it that far, with the

episode "Mortal Coil" (so much for reverence. It was a Neelix episode, for

goddness sake!).

However, when the once thought lost original pilot "The Cage" resurfaced a

few years back, Paramount rightly looked at it and thought, "Hey, we can make

money off of this in syndication too." So they edited it down and sold it

out. Wait a second, now there are EIGHTY episodes! The magic number is

broken! That's not good. So Paramount goes back, sees that "The Menagerie"

was produced as one episode, under the production number "16." Whew, that was

close.

So Paramount can very easily push the "fact" that "The Menagerie" is one

episode, despite every other two parter in history, even the two hour

episodes, being counted as two episodes! And this is what happened! No one

will publish a list of TOS episodes without listing "The Cage," (even you

Phil) and yet almost all of these sources mentions "The 79 Original Episodes"

when in fact there are 80!

I can see it now. I'm on Jeopardy. The category is "Classic Television" for

$600. "There were this many episodes of the Original Star Trek produced

before it was finally cancelled."

Many would be wrong and declared right. But only I would know the real

question, and now you do to. "What is 79 or 80, depending on if you count

"The Menagerie" as one episode or two?"
