    My Epic is in the mail, will be here Tuesday. I was torn between the Epic and EVO until I actually laid my hands on the Epic.

    Same here man! I actually pre-ordered my Evo 3 days before the Epic launched. That week, I stopped by a sprint store on my lunch break to check it out and I was just awe struck with that screen. I canceled my Evo pre-order with BB and have an Epic on pre-order now.

    My main concern is battery life but after doing much reading here and on many other sites, I am ready to play with it and make it last the way i want it to.....hopefully. I will mainly be watching my 720p BR rips, web surfing, texting to the gf and emails.

    I just wanted to go ahead and get this out of the way.

    Ha, just kidding. This is a good thread to bs with new members in though.

    Piccard > Kirk, though, and that is serious. And Janeway > everybody.

    Lol.

    Piccard is good for diplomacy. Kirk is good if you need to totally annihilate your enemies and for a good time call Janeway. heheh I jest. I love Voyager.
    Sisco's a bit mystical for my taste.

    Edit: OP: Sorry to take this post OT. (wait...what? ;))

    Doesn't Mulgrew/Janeway's delivery strike you as robotic? The way she speaks always reminds me of the Coneheads.

    Props to your welcoming manner, Steven. One of the things that attracted me to this forum was the level of civility of the users, enthusiasm of the mods and general openness toward novices and new users. Every hobby forum should be as inviting as AF.

    I'm watching Janeway as we type. :p I'm watching the Q and the Gray. Great episode. She's fine. My feelings was that the show really accelerated
    when Jeri Ryan (seven of nine) was introduced.

    Regarding your compliment: I'm honored. Thank you! :)

    Steven58, what happened to lolita? I see you moved to the X. After all that waiting & raw anticipation for the Incredible. LOL! What did you name your droid X? I had to sell my incredible and close vzw (no more discount). So now I have the Epic. I keep telling myself I'm going to be keeping this one for a very long time, I like it that much.

    OK Kirk less than Piccard? Are you out of your Vulcan minds!!!! No way Kirk is Kirk and thats the end of it. Dont get me wrong I really like Piccard he's awesome and was a great follow up in the opposite direction. But the problem was he was surrounded buy a bunch of terrible actors excluding Data. You guys must all be younger than 35 to be throwing out those Kirk comments lol. SNG was really good when the Borg showed up. Voyager was pretty good....Janeway...aaahhh I dont know shes not hot thats for sure if thats what your getting at.

    Lol, what? Terrible Actors?

    Will Wheaton as Wesely Crusher = Everyone's favorite charachter of all time.

    And Johnathan Frakes as William T. Riker... The guy could pull women/female aliens off passing spacecraft by simply glancing out of the windows in Ten Forward.

    Oh and Kes was the hottest charachter on Voyager.

    Oh, but Star Trek had the best lines, including this unforgetable scene when Spock mind-melds with the Horta creature:

    "The pain!"

    Even today, when we see really bad code (yes, I'm a programmer) we call it Horta-pain, or Horta-code or just plain ol' Horta for short.

    Getting the Epic tomorrow morning. Upgrade data was supposed to be Oct 1st, but I am going to be able to do an early upgrade. I love my Hero, it was my first android and my stepping stone. I will keep the Epic for a year, then move on to what ever is the latest at that time. My wife and kids are on Verizon, and it sucks they have to wait for 2 yrs to upgrade.

    First order of business will be rooting.
