Quotes about TNG
"I've never had great nostalgia for the whole Kirk and Spock thing. I was more of a Next Generation boy. It's the inevitable sexed-up reboot of that I'm dreading; where they cast Snooki as Counselor Troi, or Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Wesley Crusher."
Quotes from TNG

Either you come forward and tell Admiral Brand what really took place, or I will.
