[color=#000000ost_uid0]Top Ten Things We Will Never Hear Bashir Say.

10. Why should I try to save O'Brien's life? He's only a human being.
9. Since you're way better at darting than me, you'll have to stand farther from the board than me.
8. Ezri? What the hell are you doing here? Get away from me, creep!
7. Why should I try to save Odo's life? It's not like he has one.
6. The sinus of a third pi? I don't know.
5. I've never lost a patient, although I've misplaced one from time to time.
4. I like her, but she's not really to my tastes.
3. I'm sorry, I must sound a dreadful bore. ¬ Let's talk about you for a while.
2. Captain Julian Bashir? ¬ I like tha sound of that.
1. GAK! (After all, he's a main character)

Numbers 5 through 2 are Sa'ar's, though.

10. It's not Microsoft
9. The ability to send offline messages.
8. It's not Microsoft.
7. Chatlogs.
6. It's not Microsoft
5. Smaller proportion of overly lengthy dumb names with high-ASCII characters.
4. It's not Microsoft.
3. No annoying foghorn when the application starts (no, wait, wrong list)
2. Fill in the blank.
1. Lack of emoticons!

[color=#000000ost_uid0][quoteost_uid0="Derek"]It bothers me that only a week or so ago, my wife thought it would be great to see an episode where every single non-main character was played by Jeffery Combs. All the background crewmen, all the villains, all the allies, etc. And now you have this idea.[/quoteost_uid0]
Well, I really really really loved him as Weyoun. I was glad to hear they were bringing him back for ENT, but so far I've been disappointed - Shran really has no personality to speak of, Combs' talent is kinda wasted, one feels. But he's just so well known for playing so many parts... I never look at the credits, and I'm not very good at recognizing faces, but when I was watching [iost_uid0]Tsunkatsi[/iost_uid0] (or whatever the name of the VOY ep was), I was waiting for it to end, just so I could check it was really him. And he was Brunt, and one of the ENT Ferengi... and the thing is, you can see why they want him in as many roles as they can.

The closest thing we'll see to an all-Combs episode was probably that DS9 ep where he played both Brunt and Weyoun... don't remember which...

Out of curiousity... have we ever seen Weyoun in the mirror universe? If so, I missed it, but I'd love to see it if there is a reference...[/colorost_uid0]

Well, whoever this "one" is, he's not me. I personally have loved Shran. I've even had to stop and consider who I like more between him and Weyoun (I'm sticking with Weyoun for now, but a few more Shran eps might push him over Weyoun).

[quoteost_uid0]But he's just so well known for playing so many parts... I never look at the credits, and I'm not very good at recognizing faces, but when I was watching [iost_uid0]Tsunkatsi[/iost_uid0] (or whatever the name of the VOY ep was), I was waiting for it to end, just so I could check it was really him. [/quoteost_uid0]
Combs's most distinctive feature is his voice in my opinion. Visually I have very little problem thinking of Weyoun, Brunt, and Shran as different people. It's audibly that I notice the similarity most.

[quoteost_uid0]The closest thing we'll see to an all-Combs episode was probably that DS9 ep where he played both Brunt and Weyoun... don't remember which...[/quoteost_uid0]
"The Dogs of War", second to last episode. Andy even made mention of this duality in his fiver.

[quoteost_uid0]Out of curiousity... have we ever seen Weyoun in the mirror universe? If so, I missed it, but I'd love to see it if there is a reference...[/quoteost_uid0]
No. The wormhole was never discovered in the MU, so the democratic, peaceful Dominion was never seen. You'll have to stick with Mirror-Brunt.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Give Shran some more lines, and I'll think about it. In the meantime, it's difficult for "infrequently-appearing tough-but-reasonable cabal leader" to compare with "regular guest starring complex-intriguing-slick-witty-lovable-hatable guy who's in the dead center of anything to do with the major story arc".

There have only been 3 Shran episodes so far, am I right? "Incident," "Shadows," and "Cease Fire." And they've been in the Delphic Expanse all of the 3rd season so far. I'd very much like to see Shran develop... I guess it might be a while, though...

Ooooh... Shran in the Delphic Expanse... would be [iost_uid0]cool.[/iost_uid0][/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Top Ten Signs Sa'ar Is A Crotchety Old Man

10. Forces other people to write mock-derogatory lists about him, toeing the line between "funny" and "offensive"
9. Actually uses phrase "crotchety"
8. Growing senile, forgetting "Blue Screen of Death" joke
7. Blatantly repeats elements of top ten lists multiple times. Dares anybody to comment.
6. Goes by nickname describing somebody "mean, marked by bitterness and a power or will to cut or sting."
5. Growing senile, stealing items 7 and 1 from Scooter's list, then [iost_uid0]forgetting he's done it[/iost_uid0]
4. Refers to other forumgoers as "young whippersnappers"
3. Refuses to get himself a nice avatar like everybody else
2. Growing senile, occasionally forgetting present century and reverting to Latin
1. [iost_uid0]Must[/iost_uid0] be extremely old, and apparantly has spent all life in forums, judging by post count.

And you toed it quite well. I'm impressed and amused.

[quoteost_uid0]4. Refers to other forumgoers as "young whippersnappers"[/quoteost_uid0]

That's because you *are* young whippernsappers, with one or two exceptions.

[quoteost_uid0]3. Refuses to get himself a nice avatar like everybody else
[/quoteost_uid0]

That's just bucking a trend.

[quoteost_uid0]2. Growing senile, occasionally forgetting present century and reverting to Latin[/quoteost_uid0]

Mock-Latin. If we didn't have a real Latin scholar among us, I might get away with it.

[quoteost_uid0]1. Must be extremely old, and apparantly has spent all life in forums, judging by post count.[/quoteost_uid0]

That's a result of having no life.[/colorost_uid0]

3. Stop by that old general store in the Q Continuum and see if they have any Go Bananas Snapple

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Top Ten Signs of Episode Budget Overreach

10. Instead of DeForrest Kelly, there's a stand-in pulled off the street who everyone calls "Skeleton".
9. That nickname actually describes him quite well.
8. Writer's budget has been slashed - instead of a Graviton Inversion Funnel, it's only a nondescript "wormhole".
7. Instead of imaginative aliens, there's just a bunch of humans with funny foreheads - no, wait...
6. Starfleet unveils it's newest prototype ship, the USS Papermache.
5. There was no money left to pay Mayel Roddenberry, so everyone has to type and read screens a lot.
4. No CGI budget - the crew has to talk their way out of a sticky situation.
3. Avery Brooks phones in his performance, and everyone wonders why Sisko is so mellow.
2. After a breathtaking fight sequence in Act Three, the aliens admit that they had Voyager mixed up with another Starfleet ship lost in the Delta Quadrant, apologise, and leave. The rest of the episode consist of the crew toasting to their good fortune. (With cheap wine, of course.)

And the Number One sign that the episode budget ran out halfway into filming...

1. In order to cut costs for electricity, Gene Roddenberry's rapidly spinning corpse is converted into a makeshift electric generator.
