In Topic: ST:TNG premiered 25 Years Ago on this Day

I wanted to do a ST:TNG thread because I honestly don't care all that much about the other Star Trek series.

Especially the new movie which was retarded as hell.


And Nemesis wasn't?

I'd have to rewatch it, but I read on another site, that the signed page is stuck because of the ink, and Hank pulls the pages apart. So Walt never saw the note in the book when he set it there. Could just be grasping at straws though.

I have a friend who has decided to buy all the Spiel des Jahres winning games, so I won't have to buy it. :)


I'm not sure that I'd buy them all, but after looking at Wikipedia I was surprised by how many I already own.

Kingdom Builder
Dixit
Dominion
Ticket to Ride
Carcassonne
Settlers of Catan

Picked up Kingdom Builders this weekend, it just won the 2012 Spiel des Jahres. Fun game, very quick to learn and games are only about 30 minutes. It's nice because every game is a little different so you get a good variety. Definitely would recommend.

Well you cant fit that book into 10 episodes although 20 episodes seems excessive.


The show producers said in a recent interview that viewers should stop thinking of the books as seasons. A lot of people also assume that ASOS is being split up into two seasons. I doubt that's going to happen. What I think is more likely is we will have season 3 focus on ASOS and then season 4 will ASOS with a little bit of AFFC and (maybe) ADWD at the end. And then Seasons 5 and 6 will be a huge clusterfuck of AFFC, ADWD, and maybe even a little bit of TWOW. I suspect seasons 4-6 will be structured very different from the books because viewers aren't going to tolerate characters disappearing for more than a season. IIRC, GRRM explained that the events of AFFC start a little before the events of ADWD and ADWD goes a little further than AFFC. Heck even going back to the first season of the show, I think some COK events/dialogue were pushed into the end. Soooo yeah.

tl;dr books =/= seasons anymore.
