But hopefully you felt clever showing how much work you are willing to put into getting a free ebook and sabotage this guys company

Very true. And very limited to Americans. That is why these movies do so poorly oversees....

I think the sad truth is that that movies are now made to appeal to the broadest base (and nowadays this includes the people in Europe and Asia as well as the Americas) there is many issues "safe" to tackle.

Heh... although only Simon Pegg as Scotty good get away with a line like:
"Ach, maybe if I put some NOS into the Warp Core we could overtake 'em... what do I look like a stupid git? I'm givin' her all she's got!"

Babylon 5 had a similar line
When ordering the White Star to turn around from a planets gravity
Sheridan "Now! Give it everything you got"
Lennier "If I was holding anything back, I'd tell you."

No one will think of Wrath of Khan or First Contact when they hear the word "shit". These two were the best Trek movies period.

Honestly - who do you think this effects? The people going off the trails are not going to stop because there is yet another sign saying not to go off trail a bit sooner.

Whom computers would destroy, they must first drive mad.
