Star Trek Voyager, Janeway is unbeatable as a captain and the story was much more intresting. Favourite Character could either be Data from The Next Generation, or Jadzia from Deep Space Nine.

Yes.. but what kind of crazy measurement is a pound? That's almost as useful as telling us he weighs 0.000000000000000000000000000001 solar masses :P
Use kg!

I jumped on with the Lance Armstrong Foundation yellow ones, Amnesty Internationals promotion of Together we Can, our school held a conference for pupils that ended up on national tv which I was one of the organisers. Ive done a pink one for breast cancer research UK and now my black XMen 3 one.

They have replied in this thread. I believe this is so because they doubt themselfs a lot and don't put their views forward as much as they should, a calm and productive member who knows a lot and can deal with people in a very polite and nice way.

DS9 is very good, probably a close second favourite but it lacked the order that Voyagers crew had and the efficiency that was used.

Used in the United Kingdom, its something about 60kg? I think....

Scotish people are out of date... They still think it's the blessed year of our Lord 1700 ;)

So uh, Does their name begin with a A, E, D, H, J, K or a T? :P

In case of A, what's the second letter ;)


Edit: It's you isn't it :P ;)
