Trekthriller

T is for Trekthriller! A great story creates a sense of danger like a threat to the ship or an invasion force beaming aboard drawing the viewer into the experience! Remember when Kirk gave the Klingon Commander a boot in the face sending Kruge flying into the fiery abyss of flames in Star Trek III. Who were you rooting for? Perhaps, the greedy Klingon got what he deserved! Geeze, those flames sure must have hurt!!!

Or how about when Darth Vader grabs Emperor Palpatine and sends him flying down the death star's reactor shaft in Star Wars, all to save Luke Skywalker. In an epic moment of sheer exasperation Vader proves he not just a killing machine and then all is revealed. How did you react? Were you terrified? Be honest now, you did lurch left and right in your seat, didn't you? Were you rooting for the Jedi or the darkside?

Treklong and Prosper, trekkers.

Christopher Lloyd was deliciously evil in that movie. He got what was coming to him.

I think Spock's fight with Khan was pretty thrilling.

You underestimate the power of the Dark Side! I always have had a weakness for the baddies. Commander Kruge almost had Kirk. Luke almost killed Vader, I was on the edge of tears when Vader yelled out after his hand was severed. Then let it out when he died in the hangar bay.

Chris Lloyd was an awesome Klingon. :)

"I… HAVE HAD… ENOUGH OF YOU!!!"

These were my sentiments exactly in that scene. I think Kirk spoke for us all.

Very creative way to tie trek stories into the art of storytelling--and valid points!!
