Eeee! It's Assignment: Earth! Apparently they were going to turn this into its own series, and that's why there's so much detail on Gary Seven, but the studio turned it down. Which is a pity, because this is the period in Earth History in the Trekverse about which we know the least. If they'd made Assignment: Earth into a series, it would have filled that massive gap quite nicely - and it would likely have gone all the way up to First Contact with it, too. Sigh.

Stupid Enterprise. Stupid overly-emotional Vulcans. >.<

EDIT: And now I'm thinking about how cool it would be if they now finally carried through with making Assignment: Earth into a proper series. A miniseries would be sufficient, I think. It would be extremely cool. Or bringing Gary Seven into the next movie, if only in passing. Or something. I mean, I guess they couldn't use Robert Lansing and Terri Garr, but they could manage. Although I have an unpleasant suspicion that they would make Isis with CGI (and now I have a horrible image in my head of them reproducing Isis like Salem *shudder*), it would still be cool. As cool as (or cooler than) if they made Federation News Service or Star Fleet Academy or something.

Have now overwhelming urge to write Assignment: Earth fic. Damnit. Mustn't. Have paper. Grr. What is this addiction I have to filling massive continuity gaps never touched by canon for the express purpose of amusing myself? I mean, gods... Cold Comforts and O, Brave New World weren't bad enough? Oh. Also Twilight Arc, though I'm not entirely to blame for that last one. ;) Must exercise self-control. Definitely must. *restrains self*

*whimpers* Somebody stop me!

I really never watch Law & Order unless it's on as background noise or Crossing Jordan is a rerun. So it's a little weird to see Richard Brooks in a suit and tie, talking like a lawyer and destroying villains with carefully-structured court arguments. I keep expecting him to start spouting creepy poetry or snap and kill his entire law firm, and then holster his gun and gaze thoughtfully at the ceiling whilst pondering the aesthetic value of dark wood furniture against marble and the irony of Lady Justice's blindfold.

And the fact that I am paying this much attention to the television means that I am stalling. Back to work, brain! Essay. *firm voice*

And suddenly I'm feeling a great need for a Firefly icon. Of some kind. *ponders*

Planning to meet privately with Harper, and demanding that protesters be confined. Wow. That didn't take long. Ye gods, you fucking COWARDS. Show some fucking balls and listen to the people shouting very, very loudly that they don't want the man in the fucking country, let alone warm and fuzzy with our government or our industries. And isn't it amazing that he waited until he was in his second term and Chretien was gone? Waited until the PM with a spine was out. Shock. (You'd think that the fact that just about every visit Bush has made recently has resulted in big protests would tell the man something - oh, that's right. He makes sure he never actually has to *see* or *hear* those mean nasty demonstrators.)

I especially like the Bellydancers for Bush, but if I lived in Ottawa, boy would I be getting preemptively pissed about now. *headshake* And good for you, Halifax. I hope there are so many protests that not a single Bush/Martin appearance shows up on the news. *spiteful*
