Re: Star Trek Fans and Doctor Who
Keep in mind, Doctor Who used to be a kids show. I had to look up "assimilate" in the dictionary when I was a kid. Sure it added to my vocabulary, but I still only ever use the word when talking about the Borg.
The Doctor: "SHOUT?! I DON'T SHOUT!! People who have to resort to shouting to get what they want are merely demonstrating the inherent paucity of their argument! It's something THAT I NEVER NEVER--"
Peri: "ALRIGHT, DOCTOR!!"
The Doctor: "Point made, I think."
