Did ANYONE even hear the dialogue during that embarassingly gratuitous

She was WAY too emotional.  <sigh>  How much ya wanna bet she's a Romulan
spy!? ;)

Indeed.  However, it did remind me of a relatively good British sci-fi
from the early 90's, "Star Cops."  It's a near-future show which had
somewhat similar title music. :)

Of course, then I got stuck reading tons of news about Blake's 7,
the One True Space Sci-Fi.  (Dr. Who's probably the One True Sci-Fi,
with Hitchhiker's Guide and Red-Dwarf tying for the Two True Sci-Comedies)

(There's a TV movie in the works, starring and being developed/co-produced
by Paul Darrow, aka Avon...  Reading some of news he's written about it on
the new official Blakes7.com website, I'm learning how funny this guy is...
It must've been difficult for him to keep a straight face recording such
a serious, dramatic, evil character, back when B7 was being made in the
late 70s, early 80s  :) )

Reminds me... Henry, did I ever lend you my other B7 audioplay?
