"Here There Be Nerds:" Fan Debates

The funny thing is that Madam Mrs The Ratel loathes Rod Stewart*, who was obviously the first choice for the vocals, and, “I GOH FAYATH OF TH’ HAUAT!”. I think the visuals are probably competitive for best, but let’s face it, that song is what inspired Netflix engineers to come up with the Skip Intro button. I think there’s some nostalgia going on for the halcyon days when we thought everything was terrible because of George Bush.

* I mean, not Rod Stewart personally, he seems like a nice enough guy, just his music.

I thought Rod Stewart was really nice. Met him in a pub in Frankfurt back in '97. We were just watching a football game on the telly (Newcastle United vs someone else, I dont remember who) with maybe three other people in the place. We watched the match and downed our pints for the two hours or so. Had a nice chat. 10/10, would do again.

When the song was first recorded it actually was rod Stewart. The enterprise cover used Russell Watson for the vocals. I am one of the minority who actually likes the song. Except for when they changed it in s3.

Ah, yes, that’s the skit where, “You’re outta your Vulcan mind!” came from.

You mean other than TOS (Gamesters of Triskelion) or in Wrath of Khan? (ok, McCoy said both of those and Kirk in that sketch)
