just ask yourself: what would a "thinking war machine" actually "think" about?

HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HATE. HATE.

And now some lowercase letters to keep Slashcode happy: haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate

Ooh now there's a thought. We could finally settle that Enterprise vs. Star Destroyer argument. Vader could become the Borg queen. Find a way to shoehorn Picard in as well so he can have a pod racing scene. All the people in this thread saying Abrams couldn't do any worse than Lucas already has are gonna feel pretty silly.
