Sci-Fi Interlude: I went to go to see 'Star Trek: Into Darkness' today. It was relatively good. In general I like the new series - while being fresh and new, it continues to pay homage to the original series and movie spin-offs. One of my favorite quotes was from when Admiral Pike was giving Spock and Kirk a lecture (paraphrasing from memory) - Pike: "Are you giving me attitude Spock?" Spock: "I am attempting to convey multiple attitudes as the same time, to which are you referring?". Using that sharp intellect to convey the logical and forthright response, and yet delivered to be stingingly irritating at the same time was a nice bit of writing.
