Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) (part 10 of 13)

Meanwhile in sickbay, Uhura is assuring a just-awakened Scotty that Sybok isn’t a madman, he’s just “awakened feelings we’ve always been afraid to express”. And while she says this, she strokes Scotty’s cheek. And Scotty, who’s not mindzonked at all, strokes Uhura’s cheek in return. Yeesh, can we go back to the continuity errors and slapstick, please?

Mark "Scooter" Wilson

Mark is a history guy, a graphics guy, a guy for whom wryly cynical assessments of popular culture are the scallion cream cheese on the toasted everything bagel of life. He spends his time teaching modern history at Brooklyn College, pondering the ancient Romans at the CUNY Graduate Center, and conjuring maps and illustrations for ungrateful bankers at various Manhattan monoliths. Readers are welcome to guess at reasons why he's nicknamed Scooter, with the proviso that all such submissions are guaranteed to be rather more interesting than the truth. Mark lives in the Midwood section of Brooklyn with a happy-go-lucky, flop-eared dog named Chiyo who is probably, at this very moment, waiting patiently for her walkies.
