just had to watch it while I cleaned house. But oddly I noticed that there is a LOT of sexual innuendo Huh The one that caught my attention "prepare to enter course" I'm sure the geeks will say well duhhh we've know that for years.

Had ole kirk on all day. The whale one is probably my favorite with all the colorful metaphors, and the old lady growing a new kidney.

How in the world is "Beam me up, Scotty!" possibly construed as sexually ambiguous?
Nevermind the fact that Kirk never said those exact words in any episode or movie...

It was explained to me by a couple of young people with intellectual disability that I sometimes work with. Kirk wants to be up Scotty,never thought of it before that moment now I find it funny,mostly because I remember those boys laughing like demons about it. As for exact phraseology I will take your word on it not a big Trekkie so to speak

I can officially say I can count on my fingers how many Star Treks I've watched. I did however go to the theater to see the Rath because that was a time of Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica.

But for a movie that was "simple" entertainment I didn't find the need to recall precise phrases or articulate the actual use of such. Big Grin

He never actually said the words, "Beam me up, Scotty," in that order. He did, say in Star Trek IV, "Scotty, Beam me up."

Not a sci-fi geek at all... rofl

I thought the whale one was one of the dumbest. It included Scotty trying to talk into a mouse and when that didn't work he used the keyboard and was some kind of fast typing expert on it. Funny but dumb.

Also, why did they have to bring the whale? No speakers?

I am a fan of the series and the movies.

I watched Galaxy Quest a week ago for the third or fourth time. That's a funny movie.

They had to bring the whales forward in time to speak to the probe that was destroying the Earth's atmosphere. The probe's signal it was sending out was a question in whale-speak that only a humpback whale could answer. The humans could not decipher whale speak, so there was no way to know how to communicate with it.

Corny set-up by today's story-telling standards, for sure...but back in 1986 it was topical stuff. Leonard Nimoy (the director) is a socially and enviromentally-concious sort of guy, so he wanted to say something about endangered species.
This movie was specifically written for and aimed at an audience that had not neccesarily ever seen any Satr Trek episode or movie before, to widen it's hopefull audience. This led to a little goofiness and discontinuity that dissapoints some die hard fans, but it worked; it was the highest-grossing of all the Star Trek movies.

Ok, I admit it: I like Star Trek.
