Couldn't you just use the Phone Booth to travel in time to make sure your car didn't break down though?

The only way he could do that is if he was a companion of the Doctor

My favorite line:

Riker hadn't grown the beard yet, Tasha leaned on tactical and Worf lurked behind her, glowering a lot. Troi's only purpose was to state the obvious and wear low-cut dresses, while everyone else wore one-piece uniforms a size too small. Data trotted out his thesaurus when anyone said anything and Wesley was just an annoying wunderkid. Geordi still wore red and flew the ship while they went through a succession of one-episode chief engineers.

in the 80s!

Oh how I hate season 1 TNG :-( so frustrating watching TNG with my other friends who just have never watched Star Trek. I fail so many times trying to explain to them that it gets SOO much better around mid-season 2 after Q introduces the Borg and The Romulans decloak and announce "We, are back"


But I digress, Im only a fake 80s kid. I was born in 1989. When Bryan Adams was number 1, when the Berlin Wall came down and before Axl Rose started to ake people wish they'd never been born

And who can forget the deep, nuanced plots - like "Drugs Are Bad", "Capital Punishment is Bad", "War Profiteers are Bad", and "Sexism is Bad, Especially When Women Are In Charge"? Also, it is important to emphasize at every point that Humanity is Totally Awesome now, usually by being very smug about it to less perfect and enlightened countries, I mean, species.

Now me, I was born in 1970, so it all lines up very neatly: the 70s were my childhood and the 80s were my teen years, and thus in many ways still my favorite decade. (Though the 90s had many good things also.)

I had some punk who grew up in the '90s tell me that the music from the '80s was the worst ever. I had to bodyslam him hard, like that fat kid bodyslamming the bully.
