Well, theyve got about $10 more in backtrax to get out of me. I believe daredevil and 5th element are the only ones I havent bought. I hope it was merely a joke and not that the business is in trouble. 
I'm sure they're doing just fine.  They can afford to keep bringing in Kevin Murphy, right?

   I learned that there must be enough people getting unpaid-for copies of Rifftrax that they are actively talking about the situation.

That no one with RiffTrax watched Voyager, since there were no references to Tuvok. (Since Tim Russ played one of the officers on the Enterprise-B.)

He also played a bad guy in a Next Generation episode.

/The More You Know
He was also a Klingon in that Deep Space Nine episode where a Trill guy was so cut up about not getting a slug in his gut that he decided to steal Jadzia's. And there was a Mirror Universe episode where he played Mirror Tuvok, but that doesn't really count, does it?

I learned that the last thing I should have done was bought Crossroads. Wait, what?

Yes. See, every time Data gets hormonal, the last thing you want in your head is that goddamn 'not a girl' 'song'.

I also learned that the very idea of killing Kirk was so awful, it's impossible to not shit all over it. However, given the choices between having him shot in the back, having a bridge dropped on him, or being told to BUY MORE RIFFTRAX, there's only one on that list that's remotely productive.

I learned that if you could leave the Lexus Nexus and go back to any point in time to stop the bad guys, you would NOT pick the time when you rescued him from the observator when you first met him, you would pick the point in time when the bad guy has all the advantages and is moments from killing a solar system.

I learned that they SO wanted the Borg in this movie they decided to give the TV crews borg look alike cameras and lights.

Excellent Point!!!!  ;D Bravo!  :clap: That is probably why the movie has always seemed to be at first draft stage.

I also learned that despite owning the ENTIRE TV series on DVD and all the Next Generation movies, I still do not mind them being made fun off.

you know what irritates me? Data says "Saddle up, lock and load" in Star trek: Insurrection. Bones already said "Lock and load" in Star trek VI! You should only be able to get away with one annoying lame-ass cliche once in an entire movie franchise.

As a history major, anacronisms like that kill me.

Forever playing Star Trek's advocate, here's my explination for Picard's short term time hop, as opposed to a more useful one: Time travel, though relatively rare, isn't new to the Federation. Assumably, back in academy, they learned that time travel did the least damage (both continuity-wise and paradox wise,) in the short term.
Still doesn't explain why there was only 1 Picard after he travelled back.

I think that is just the Berman lazy factor at play there and I hope the new stewards of the franchaise take more good care with all the goodwill the fans are giving it.

Ah! No, I figured it out! When he came back, it was a moment after Bad Guy shot at the rock, accidentally freeing Picard. While Past Picard was pulling himself out of the rubble, New Picard came over to him and smashed his head in with a rock.
Kirk: "...."
Picard: "What?! I had to do it! Do you want a paradox?"
Kirk: "...Umm...."
Picard: "Look, if it makes you feel any better, he was an asshole anyway. Now come on!"
Kirk: "...."

I'm just glad you didn't present the always handy visual aid on that one.

Any other plot holes I can fill in using my disturbing methods?
