    Just for clarification, my last post takes place hours after Asteropax's post, after that work shift ends, so there's no confusion on where Kurts is. LOL! I love that character. I see him is being sarcastic and fun loving but also a tactical genius and locked in when it's time for business.

    Bonus points for those who get the two song references! *L*

    I got the song from the bus scene in The Voyage Home but the other remains a mystery to me.

    Right on the first one! That song has an interesting background. Originally, the song was supposed to be from Duran Duran, but associate producer Kirk Thatcher (who plays the punk on the bus) said that it wasn't what a punk fan in the 1980's would listen to. From memory Alpha:

    The reason for the obscurity of Edge of Etiquette is the band not having existed longer than approximately one and a half days after the movie had gone into post-production. Thatcher provided the vocals as well as the lyrics for the song. The rest of the team consisted of several such members of the sound department as Mark Mangini, who converted the tune Thatcher had in mind for the song to something that could be played.

    To achieve an "authentic" gritty punk sound, Thatcher, Mangini and company moved into the hallway of the sound studio where the post-production sound work was being done in order to record the song. They also used the lowest quality microphones and instruments they had available to enhance the illusion that the song had been recorded live at a punk club.

    This was the only time Edge of Etiquette ever recorded anything or played anywhere. No royalties or licensing fees of any kind were ever paid to anyone for the use of the song "I Hate You" in Star Trek IV. Thatcher did get some royalties when the song was later used in the movie Back To The Beach, but the song was not included on the film's soundtrack album. [2] The song remained unavailable for purchase until the soundtrack was re-released in late December 2011.



    The second one is "Broken Wings" by Mr. Mister. Another 80's song, but it spins on the singer being an Aurelian. If you've ever seen the TAS episode "Yesteryear," the yellow, birdlike scientist with the big wings holding a tricorder. is an Aurelian. I started playing the mobile game Star Trek Timelines, and he was one of the featured characters a few weeks ago. *L*

    So what we're essentially saying here is that I remember a couple of lines from a fictional punk song in a movie I last saw fifteen years ago but I don't remember the lyrics to Mr Mister's actual anthem from the 80's despite growing up during the period and listening to tonnes of music while in high school. I am suitably ashamed and shall hand in my Generation X membership card.

    *LOL* Dont feel bad! I intentionally used only the first few lyrics of the song to make it harder to identify. I toyed with closing my post with the well known chorus that would have been immediately recognizable, but I decided to leave it out! Just like I didn't use the lyric "I hate you" in the song "I Hate You." The How Many Megatons line is my favorite from that fictional song, so I couldn't help using it and bolding it. If I would have left that one out, there's a possibility you might not have caught that one either. *L*
