If you’d asked me “Was there one thing Star Trek got wrong that Starship Troopers got right?” I’d have answered, “Impossible. Not one single thing.” But Big Hollywood’s Kurt Schlichter sees it differently:
Where are the non-commissioned officers (NCO), the petty officers and sergeants who actually make any military organization run? No, I can suspend disbelief over Klingons and tribbles, and I actively support the notion of green alien hotties. But the idea of a functioning military unit without sergeants is just a wormhole too far.
Plenty of sergeants in Starship Troopers, not one in Star Trek. Let that be a word to the wise for all of you who would have gone off and used Star Fleet as the model for your country’s military forces.
Just to keep Big Hollywood from batting 1.000, however, it also hosted Mike Long’s Star Trek review, which David Klaus nominates as “the stupidest review from the stupidest reviewer.”
