Keeping My Nerd Membership Fresh

The Netflix genre page for Star Trek says the following:

“Whether you’re into James Kirk or Jean-Luc Picard (or even Kathryn Janeway), grab one of these titles and you’ll feel like you’ve hopped aboard the Enterprise to fight Klingons and Borgs.”

Notice anything wrong with that sentence? If you’re a big enough Trekkie, you’d want to submit a correction to Netflix too. I did.

I wonder how many other instances of this correction they’ve received…

    “Whether you’re into James Kirk or Jean-Luc Picard…”

    Sounds like subtext to me :-)

    I have some flowers here for….Gene…Luck…Pickerd?

    I certainly hope that this was about the use of a noun that is collective in the plural, rather than adding an ess.

    that was my guess

    As a random note, the correct quote is: “Flowers! Is there a John…Luck…Pickerd here?”

    I mean, hell, I not even a little Trekkie, and I still feel compelled to submit a correction…

    (Except, of course, for the fact that I am lazy.)

    Thank you for that. I could not remember it verbatim. I was sure it was Gene though.

    Maybe. I remember it as John though. I had it as my computer’s start-up music for a while…god, I’m such a geek…

    Maybe I won’t have to if I get this wrong, but isn’t it Catherine Janeway?
    I guessed before I read other comments…soon I shall see.

    What’s a sister of a nurd to do?

    Speaking of, will you call you sister?

Nurd Up!
