    Time Warner Cable drew headlines from media outlets nationwide earlier this week after actor Patrick Stewart complained in a Twitter post about difficulties he had installing cable TV at his new apartment in Brooklyn, N.Y. "All I wanted to do was set up a new account with [Time Warner Cable] but 36hrs later I've lost the will to live," Stewart wrote in the Twitter post. The MSO's customer service team responded in its own Twitter post, offering to help, but Stewart said that it was too late. ABC's Good Morning America discussed the incident, saying that it is "finally proof that even if you're rich and famous, dealing with the cable company can still be an exercise in futility."

    Maybe he forgot to say "Make it so."

    What, too obvious?

    Finally proof that being a starship captain is nothing compared to dealing with the (@#@*& cable company.

    The Borg are probably easier to deal with.

    Goerdi would have been able to figure things out. Too bad he wasn't around.

    Oh, well, yeah. The Borg are a lot less inimical, weild a lot less power, and their representatives are not nearly as stupid or drone-like as TWC CSRs. Altogether, engaging in battle with the Borg is much more pleasant than trying to battle TWC. That's why I finally told them to shove it up their wazoo, and ordered service with another provider.

    As much as Time Warner and Paramount play footsie with one another, it wouldn't be surprising to me if Time Warner has optioned Levar Burton's contract. IOW, he's probably been assimilated! :D

    All he would have done is reverse the polarity anyways.
