Star Trek Fan Event: Recap

So May 20th, Paramount held a one-night-only “Star Trek Fan Event” celebrating the upcoming film “Star Trek Beyond.”


Invitations were largely won through a variety of sweepstakes (how I got in,) although there were the usual assortment of media and industry types.  They gave somewhat conflicting information about what you could and could not take into the event–I was told that I couldn’t take so much as a purse in, whereas other people walked in with large bags, cameras, etc.  After the usual check-in procedure, we were ushered through a mock-up of an Enterprise corridor into a circular bridge-like area for a series of presentations.


The MC for the evening, Adam Savage from “Mythbusters,” started off with a quick discussion between “Star Trek Beyond” producer J.J. Abrams and director Justin Lin.



Some of the topics discussed:

  • Abrams said that the lawsuit against the “Axanar” filmmakers will be dismissed, partly due to Lin’s insistence that it was a bad way to treat Star Trek fans.
  • Lin announced that “Star Trek Beyond” will premier at San Diego Comic-Con this year, July 20th, with outdoor IMAX and a live orchestra.  All the fans in attendance at the Fan Event will be given tickets.
  • Abrams hated the chair he was sitting in.

They then played some behind-the-scenes footage reminiscent of the behind-the-scenes footage Abrams brought from “Star Wars:  The Force Awakens” last year to SDCC.  This was followed by the introduction of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Karl Urban.


The three stars then fielded some questions from the Savage, the audience, and Twitter.

  • On whether they would be attending SDCC:  Pine–“I haven’t gotten an invitation.”  Urban (as McCoy)–“are you kidding? Comic-Con is full of disease and and danger and darkness!”
  • Bones and Spock end up spending a lot of time together in the movie and end up with a better understanding of each other.
  • Quinto’s favorite aspect of filming is getting together with the rest of the cast and crew which he considers family.
  • Urban liked that they filmed in Vancouver, which forced them all to hang out together and get closer.
  • Quinto says the theme of the movie is all of the characters trying to get back together and understanding the power of their unity.
  • Pine notes that past films have dealt with Kirk trying to live up to his father, while this film sees him searching to define himself on his own terms.

After they finished up, TV Producer Scott Mantz conducted a short trivia game in which audience members won props from the film for answering questions such as “what was the name of Edith Keeler’s mission in ‘City on the Edge of Forever?'”  (Answer:  21st Street Mission)

The entire room then adjourned to bleachers outside the soundstage for a short ceremony renaming the street after Leonard Nimoy.




It was a particularly nice touch, given that it was right outside the soundstage where they shot ST: TOS back in the day.


Then, a bevy of Orion Slave Girls sealed our phones into green pouches, and we went inside to watch the new trailer and a couple scenes from “Star Trek Beyond.”

Some thoughts:

  • The trailer looked much better to me than the initial one, but still seemed pretty similar to the action-filled trailers of the last two films.
  • The additional scenes they played really sold it to me, however.  Some quiet moments with Kirk and McCoy made it feel much more like a movie than a video game cutscene, and the obvious mirroring of a similar scene in ST: TWoK seemed much more respectful than the last time these movies referenced ST: TWoK.
  • The plot mechanics appear to be setting up one of those tried-and-true character development devices where unusual groups get marooned and isolated together and have to take their relationships to a different level to survive.
  • Karl Urban is terrific.

After getting our phones unlocked, one of the walls to the screening room opened up to reveal a party complete with DJ, open bars, appetizers, desserts, custom printed t-shirt stations, and costumes and props from the movie.


Kirk’s suit
Transporter photo op
Krall’s throne
I want Kirk’s coffee cup so bad.
Spock’s uniform
Krall’s…body suit? Armor? Skin?
Kirk’s other uniform. He gets a pretty good wardrobe for a guy essentially in the military.
Med kit and tricorder. I like how the tricorder went from the cassette player look back in the 60s, to the iPhone look in the 10s.
Go on. You know you want to sit in it.

At the end of the evening, everyone (or at least everyone until they ran out) received a swag bag with limited edition poster, tribble, Spock ears, and premiere credential!


In all, it was an amazing event–way more than I had imagined it would be when I showed up for it.  Probably one of the best parts was knowing that I’ll get to see the Star Trek premiere at SDCC without having to resort to homicide and espionage, as I almost certainly would have otherwise.  Thanks J.J.!

Once Upon A Time, S5E22: Season Finale: “Only You” and “Untold Story”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
Only You
  • I always like how you can instantly tell how good/evil anyone is, by how dark their makeup is. 
  • Also, Regina’s hair is always so much better when she goes evil. 
  • Glad Rumple just carts Belle around inside that little box all the time, like she’s jewelry.
  • Nice going Killian.
  • Well Emma does seem a little forgetful about how she felt when she went all psycho about Hook and everyone told her to go take a nap.
  • Oh come on Henry.  Are you joining up with the Peter Pan coalition now?
  • Yeah, that’s not creepy at all, asking some girl that you barely know to run away with you for who knows how long.
  • Ok Henry, how come you don’t just write out “all the magic’s gone” or “the crystal is destroyed?”
  • Oh hi Rumple.
  • It’s hard to think that the whole town would disintegrate without magic, when the town actually was totally without magic for a couple of minutes first season after Emma broke the spell and before Rumple brought magic back.
  • Ugh, Merida is the worst.
  • Remember when no one could make a portal because all the beans were gone?  Now it’s like portals everywhere.
  • Pretty sure that’s not covered under AppleCare.
  • Also hilarious that with all her power, Regina still has a flip phone.
  • If you were Violet, would you really run off to a different part of the country with some strange guy without even taking a pair of pants?
  • I’m guessing that arrow feather is going to be a big deal next season.
  • Maybe everyone should stand back?
  • Granny’s all “thanks for leaving me with the baby.”
  • Who still keeps maps in their car?!
  • Although, I guess if you’re still rocking the flip phone, you’re not going to to be asking Siri for directions.
  • A little worrisome that Regina routinely travels around with a 4-inch needle  on her.
  • Realistically, who hasn’t ever wanted to do that to a parking guy?
  • Do we really think Neal genuinely wanted to do away with magic?  Or was that the influence of that girl who was pretending to be his fiancée who was working for Peter Pan to do away with magic for…reasons?
  • Don’t taze me, bro.
  • Emperor Palpatine in his earlier days.
  • From when she was little to now, Snow will just spill everything to anyone.
  • Snow would make the worst spy.
  • You would think Hook could start stabbing at this dude’s hand with his hook.
  • “You’re just saying that because you feel bad about ripping her heart out in Camelot.”
  • True, dat.
  • So Regina gave this book to Robin?  How did it end up in Neal’s apartment?
  • Also, good thing that no one in New York ever needs an apartment so they left this one totally untouched for the year or so since he died.
  • Parilla really looks good in this scene.
  • Rumple must have been thinking “wow, I can’t believe I have to listen to all this maudlin soul-searching just to find out where I have to go to kill my grandson.”
  • The Librarian is all “no one comes here because everyone else in the world uses this thing called ‘the internet.'”
  • Henry used to know how to use the internet when he used it to find Emma, but apparently magic makes your googling skills rusty.
  • …Or, Henry could just write with his pen “the solution to all their problems showed up right now.”
  • I’ve seen a lot of hospital labs and doctors, and I’m pretty sure none of them were set up for wand reattachment.
  • Good thing the library doesn’t have any alarm system for all its totally rare and mystical artifacts.
  • That was the shortest fight in the history of fights.
  • I never know why anyone thinks they can go up against Rumple.
  • In Steampunk Land, it appears magic is basically electricity.
  • Oops.
  • Well, I’m not so sure the book version of Hyde looked like Sam Witwer, but ok.
  • Actually Henry, your dad initially got gone when his fake fiancée shot him, sans magic.
  • Although, I guess he did fall into a portal right afterwards, but that actually saved his life, so really it was kind of a wash.
  • Regina just likes phlebotomy.
  • You would think, in a hospital, they’d have a bandage for that cut on Hyde’s face.
  • If Hyde wants to leave, why doesn’t he just make a portal back to Storybrooke with the wand?  Cut out the middleman.
  • Rumple can still take Belle around the world in the box.  He won’t even have to pay for an extra airline seat.
  • Once again, faced with a choice, Rumple went for the magic and not his family.
  • At least we got rid of Merida.
An Untold Story
  • Actually, isn’t Hyde just as clever as Jekyll?
  • Because he’s the same guy?
  • “Before we find him, we have to have a way to defeat him.”
  • Already Jekyll is smarter than Coulson.
  • Oh wow, this is some sketchy CG.
  • This is like the Land of Central Casting.
  • Like they just rounded up everyone on the lot that day who had their own costume.
  • Rumple apparently not going the subtle route.
  • Man, Rumple is going to drain this poor room service guy’s blood or something.
  • So the hotel is nice enough to have solid silver platters for room service, but not nice enough to get your order right.
  • At least Granny knows how to text.
  • Emma is reusing her “we have to be smart about this” line from the first half.
  • Rumple is not going to buy this.
  • That is a lot of liquid he just milked out of that flower.
  • I also kind of feel like Jekyll and Hyde is actually…a told story?
  • If Hyde wanted the potion, why didn’t he just let Jekyll finish it ages ago?
  • Rumple is always the smartest guy in the room.
  • “For better or worse, this is now who you are:  Guilt-ridden and weak.”
  • Scalpel back to Dr. Rumple.
  • Carlyle does such a good job with Evil!Gold! So controlled.
  • We will probably forget this moment, but maybe we should subsequently remember that Rumple was actually going to kill Regina and Emma right here.
  • Is there some reason Rumple doesn’t just smack the cup out of Henry’s hands right now?
  • Yikes, that was kinda gross.
  • Hyde gave birth to Jekyll.
  • Zelina finally found someone to fireball.
  • Why in God’s Name would Jekyll tell Snow to leave the taser, when that was the only thing that would even slow Hyde down?
  • Oh right, Rumple.  Like you had any intention of rescuing anyone but Belle.
  • Ha ha!  Gold knew Storybrooke was fine without magic all the time.
  • Grumpy! Henry!
  • Oh hey, I thought Neal’s fake fiancée killed this dude a long time ago.
  • So The Dragon won’t help dark souls, but he was willing to help August, who ran out on Emma, abandoned her as a baby, got her tossed in jail, and stole her money.
  • Although I guess I remember that he charged him pretty well for it.
  • Gold is all “this is the stupidest thing we have ever done.”
  • Why was Charming leading them through the CG square?  He hadn’t ever been there.
  • It’s a good thing Henry has the heart of the Truest Believer, because otherwise, this would be really embarrassing for him.
  • These guys are all “why is someone pitching pennies at us?”
  • The New Yorkers are all “best street performers ever!”
  • Ok Emma, I think it’s a little overestimation to say that the thirty people in this square are “the world.”
  • Well, here’s the thing, Regina:  The Evil Queen isn’t some alien residing inside you that you can blame for everything.  She is actually you.  Wanting her to be gone so you don’t have to be sorry anymore is just trying to escape consequences.
  • That’s not really hero-ish.
  • Oh noooo, Snow.
  • You cannot seriously be thinking that this is a good idea.
  • In the first season, didn’t Charming give a whole speech to all of Storybrooke about how they had to embrace their lame cursed selves because they were just part of themselves?
  • Trying to separate yourself into good and evil bits never did anything good for anyone.
  • Did we learn nothing from “The Enemy Within!?”
  • Man, if you actually stuck someone with a needle that long, it would come out the other side of her wrist.
  • Oh, gross.  Again.
  • The Evil Queen had such cool clothes.
  • Why is good Regina taller than evil Regina?
  • Look, you can dust the Evil Queen, but I’m pretty sure the people she killed are still dead.
  • It’s not like the acts you did went away, Regina.  You still did them.
  • LOL that three of them apparently had to mash into the back of Gold’s car.
  • Did that put magic back into everywhere?  The Olympian Crystal seems like it had extra super duper magic in addition to Storybrooke’s magic.
  • Extra LOL that they apparently didn’t have enough budget to show Hyde’s “friends,” even after he introduced and presented them.
  • Maybe Darth Maul will be one of them.
  • Meanwhile, The Dragon is all “oh no, not again.”
Thoughts on the Season
  • So I think the whole “Dark Swan” storyline had some interesting pieces in it, particularly as it fleshed out the mythos of The Dark Ones.
  • Where it let me down a little was the whole Camelot bit, which seemed kind of poorly done technically, and ultimately unnecessary.
  • I might have felt better about it if, at the end, they had changed things around for Camelot, but actually they didn’t.
  • Everyone there, as far as we know, is still under the sway of Arthur’s roofie dust, including Guinevere, who he basically date-raped for the last several years of their marriage.
  • Also Merida was given the most annoying treatment since Mulan.  Constantly making poor decisions, taking wrong actions, and generally being kind of an irritant.
  • Ultimately, Emma didn’t really get all that dark, which I guess made it easier for her to come back without that much baggage.
  • I think the Underworld half worked better for me, although I had some issues with Hades.  The concept of limbo was interesting and the characters moving on or becoming lost forever meant the stories were more circumscribed.
  • In general, it seemed like a lot of the major arcs had the potential to go on for longer, but then in the interests of time, just got abruptly truncated.
  • I also have a lot of questions now about TRUE LOVE.
  • Remember back in the day, when Rumple did all this work to get tissue samples from Snow and Charming so he could work TRUE LOVE into his spell, because it was the rarest thing in the galaxy or something?
  • But this season alone, we got no less than three new couples of TRUE LOVE:  Hades/Zelina, Dorothy/Red, and Hook/Emma.
  • Also, I guess one failed TRUE LOVE couple, Gold/Belle.
  • In the first place, boy howdy, does TRUE LOVE not take that much time, because both Hades/Zelina and Dorothy/Red seem to have known each other for about half an hour before their love had reached critical mass and could vanquish the curses of Gods.
  • However, I guess I don’t really know what the qualifications are for TRUE LOVE, because on the one hand, Gold can’t wake up Belle because…she doesn’t love him?
  • But in this episode, Emma clarifies that it doesn’t work because Belle doesn’t want to be with him–which seems more reasonable than that she doesn’t love him, given that she just killed a dude for him.
  • If she does still love him though, you would think that it would actually still qualify for TRUE LOVE, just not maybe PERFECT LOVE, or even APPROPRIATE LOVE.
  • And on the other hand, Hades and Zelina did make the grade for TRUE LOVE even though it became clear later on that if he did love her, he certainly didn’t love her as much as he loved power–much like Rumple.
  • But that was ok, because…she didn’t know it at the time of the kiss?  So basically you can keep your TRUE LOVE status even if you are totally deceiving your partner, as long as they don’t find out?
  • For that matter then, it doesn’t seem like Belle’s plan of getting her Dad to wake her up would have worked either, because even though she loved him, it wasn’t like she wanted to be with him, either.
  • (Because he was kind of a suck Dad.)
  • Even Hook and Emma, although they have clearly made a lot of sacrifices for each other, seem like kind of a new relationship to get the TRUE LOVE stamp of approval.
  • When they get right down to it, neither one of them had a whole lot of confidence that they even had TRUE LOVE, whereas I’m pretty sure Snow and Charming were both 100% on the TRUE LOVE train from early on in their acquaintance, without having to get tested for it.
  • They kind of seem more like DESPERATE LOVE,  or EVERYONE ELSE IS PAIRED UP OR DEAD LOVE.
  • Anyway, on the final teaser for next season, I think that by now, everyone should know better than to try to split their evil selves off.
  • I do kind of understand what might have motivated it though:  Regina with her TRUE LOVE and new commitment to virtue was actually becoming pretty dull.
  • But by this time we had gone through the switchback between good and evil so often with her, it wasn’t really viable to have her go dark again.
  • This way we can keep her Hero (mostly) Status, and also have Parilla chewing the scenery as the Evil Queen, which is a nice compromise.
  • Looking forward to next season, exploring the duality of good vs. evil, and hopefully a bigger CG budget.

Once Upon A Time, S5E21: “Last Rites”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • Hades and Zelena are so magical, it is raining everywhere but on them. 
  • Oh look, it’s that jerk Arthur. 
  • Look, they’re bonding over mutual evil. 
  • Ooh, that sounded like really bad chiropracty. Tough luck Arthur. 
  • Man, Merida is so awful. 
  • Zelina. Still continuing to back every wrong horse she sees. 
  • It is a truly sorry Underworld when the only person you can find to help you with your quest is the dude who killed you. 
  • This show is really not endearing Merida to me. 
  • Doesn’t Zelina think Regina is going to want her house back?
  • Emma’s not having a good day. 
  • Robin is apparently still grumpy at having sat out the first half of the season. 
  • Oh Rumple’s going to blame Emma for this whole thing. I don’t think she was around when you sold your kid, Rumple. 
  • That’s pretty good that Hook remembered the pages after all this. 
  • Hysterical!Emma! is kind of one-note. 
  • All his magic, and Rumple’s still using a flip phone. 
  • Wow, this scene is really making me think Robin’s going to eat it. 
  • Good thing the boat that was such a hot commodity back when Emma and Rumple needed one, was apparently just lying around when Hook needed it. 
  • Hook is pretty good to Arthur for having been killed by him. 
  • Emma and Zelena, doing a dive to the bottom of the barrel today. 
  • Yep. 
  • The Miller’s Granddaughters. Single again. 
  • You can do whatever you want Arthur. It’s not going to make up for you having date-raped your wife for years. 
  • Wow, Zeus is a lot younger than I would have thought. 
  • Zeus escorted Hook a whole three steps. 
  • Freaking Merida couldn’t even find a black dress. 
  • You know Snow, I think people are going to keep dying. You may have another day like today. 
  • Well, it’s kind of your fault for running off half-cocked all the time, but not all the way. 
  • Snow loves you Emma, but not enough to leave you the umbrella.
  • I feel like maybe Emma would have initially suspected this was a trick or a hallucination or something.
  • I guess Rumple went out for coffee this episode after threatening to kill Belle’s dad. 
  • Are you kidding me?! They knew this thing was powerful enough to kill a god, and they didn’t look for pieces?
  • Actually, why did Hades kill Arthur in the first place? What did that do except help Hook?
  • I suspect we may have some more discussion about villains never getting their happy endings again.
  • Although, Cruella seems pretty happy now.

Think of a magical thought. Any evil little thought.
Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • I find it hard to think that Hades can’t just zap Zelena back from wherever she is. 
  • So far, Hades has not been making out too bad with these deals. 
  • Hey, it’s a “Heroes Reborn” reunion!
  • Nice mirror to Emma’s bail bondsman intro the first episode. 
  • I feel like ripping up the contract is not legally binding. 
  • So I really like this scene. In the first place, I think Robbie Kay does a great job as Evil!Pan!
  • In the second place, everyone here acts consistently with their characters. Emma keeps the spirit of her bargains, Rumple rarely does. 
  • Not sure why Pan didn’t take Zelena with him when he poofed out, but oh well. 
  • I always think it’s hilarious that those jelly hearts split in half like “click.”
  • Oh quick, snap ’em back together again and stick it back in. 
  • How was Peter Pan going to get back alive? Isn’t his body rotting somewhere?
  • I can’t tell whether this is Emma before or after Neal and Henry.
  • This seems like a pretty sketchy plan from Hades. 
  • Papa not so happy with baby Rumple. 
  • Why can’t Rumple just sling Belle over his shoulder and take off? Or poof her over there? Why does he even need a box?
  • I feel like people transport sleeping people normally without Pandora’s Box. 
  • Robin is feeling the consequences of having spent this whole arc babysitting out in the woods. 
  • Regina is becoming a little credulous in virtue. 
  • Emma was kind of a brat. 
  • Poor Stealthy. 
  • I don’t get how you can just become mayor or Ruler of the Underworld just by saying so. 
  • I’m not a lawyer, but I don’t think that’s how elected officials happen. 
  • Maybe if the lame denizens of Storybrooke ever lifted a finger to help themselves against every evil person who walks over and says they’re in charge, their lives wouldn’t be as crappy as they usually are. 
  • This doesn’t seem like the most strenuous test of true love ever. 
  • That was not the best fire effect this show has ever done. 
  • Colin should maybe work a little on his “burning man” acting.
  • Turned out someone can’t turn good that fast. 
  • Zelina, still not the sharpest stick in the drawer. 
  • Good going, Emma. 
  • Killian, you don’t let go, you are going to keep her hand with you in the Underworld. 
  • I hope this girl gave Emma a discount. 
  • So what was the point of the whole flashback? To show that Emma got some poor woman killed and learned the wrong lesson from it?
  • If Emma and Regina combined can reverse Hades’ spells, you’d think this adventure would have taken less time than it did. 
  • Nooo! Robbie!
  • If Rumple could distract him long enough to put Robin’s heart back and get a wineskin and fill it with lost soul water, you’d think he could have just skipped the Robin part altogether. 
  • Not sure this is how Pandora’s Box historically works. 
  • Rumple walking over and stepping through the portal without so much as a look back is the most perfect example of someone NGAF ever. 
  • Clock stopped.  Glad they left and took all the hope with them, abandoning everyone to Cruella for Eternity. 

Star Wars: The Old Republic Live-ish Blog. Chapters 11-12 of Jedi Consular “Knights of the Fallen Empire”

Spoiler Thoughts:
  • Chapter XI:  Disavowed
  • Oh, I guess we don’t have an option of starting it or not. Just straight on into the breach.
  • Havok Squad sounds familiar.
  • Major Jorgan apparently likes to gang out in the swamp in his tighty whities.
  • Oh, and shooting with an imaginary gun. I think there might be a glitch here.
  • Ok, should that Jorgan guy be with me? Because he is nowhere around while these swamp things are beating on me.
  • Well I feel like he is supposed to be here, because now it says to talk to him.
  • Ok, resetting.
  • Oh look, he has clothes now.
  • Back through the swamp. At least I get to watch everyone else go through the same thing in the chat window.
  • They are really not investing too much in the mission descriptions anymore.
  • The worst part of any game is trying to fiddle with the graphics setting so the resolution is high enough to distinguish something, but low enough so I can walk around without jerking in different directions.
  • Man, Jorgan is gone again.
  • You know, I think he fell through the floor, because I can still hear him, and everybody keeps shooting at the ground instead of me.
  • This chapter maybe needed some more debugging.
  • Damn it, this battle droid Atherna is kicking my ass.
  • Part of it seems to be that for all his talk, Jorgan has pretty poor survival instincts.
  • You would think, if a huge machine is going to plop down in one spot and keep firing at you, you would…I don’t know…MOVE?!
  • Argh. Still dying.
  • Took a break for a day. Still dying.
  • FINALLY killed it. I have no idea what made the difference, besides killing the turrets and knights faster.
  • Glad these citizens had better firepower than all these military guys.
  • Again, I don’t know why everyone looks pretty good except Lana who always looks under-rendered.
  • Oh man, Koth just administered a sick burn to Senya.
  • Nobody likes Scorpio.
  • That was kind of weird. We just went to sit in the cantina and watch people get beat up.
  • Well I guess that was the end? These end kind of abruptly.
  • This was the first one I did as an early access subscriber, and I’d have to say that it was a little buggy.


  • Chapter XII: Visions in the Dark
  • Oh already with the tough decisions. Use the fleet? Or destroy it?
  • Frankly, I’m not sure either Kaliyo or Jorgan is my top pick.
  • There must be people who make these decisions on a snap. I usually have to think so long, the game has to check if I’m still alive.
  • Ok Jorgan. You’re up.
  • Why is it every time Valkorion wants to talk to me, he can barge in while people are throwing napalm at me, but when I want to talk to him, I have to go camping under a waterfall?
  • Well that wasn’t that helpful.
  • Hey, we checked all the exits and they were all no good.
  • I feel like we didn’t come off too well in that fight.
  • Oh look, our maybe-future-MIL.
  • “Don’t take this personally, but you’ve gotten…strange.”
  • Theron’s Mom has maybe been alone too long.
  • Oh, I guess she wasn’t alone after all.
  • Seems disturbing.
  • Wow, talk about strange bedfellows.
  • Oh dudes. You can’t just tell me the secrets? There’s a war going on, if you weren’t aware.
  • Morality is a weakness?
  • Accumulating all these secrets and I have no idea what they are.
  • I’m not so sure you guys are helping.
  • I made a thing! That will probably last about five fights before I have to throw it in the garbage.
  • …What.
  • They just…left?
  • GDI
  • Wow, I can’t climb this climbing wall for anything.
  • There is no way I can make any of these jumps and none of the ledges connect.
  • Ok, taking a leap and just yelling for help.
  • OMG. All you had to do was click a rock. Hate you BioWare.
  • Glad in all the time I was hunting weird crap in the jungle, everyone continued with the same argument as when I left.


  • Oh, got another mission from the Hutt guy.  Reclaimed Treasure.
  • Sith artifacts are never good news for anyone.
  • Ok, unlocked the artifact, fixed the amulet, found the Hidden Hallow and…nothing.
  • Absolutely nothing. This may be a bug.
  • Yep, a bug. Had to restart the mission. Ugh.
  • Hm. If we recruit this guy, it will be the first dark side move we’ve made
  • Well, we all have to sacrifice for the Alliance.
