PSE TAC-15, Tactical Assault Crossbow

TAC-15 ‘Tactical Assault Crossbow’, the sort of crossbow designed for when aliens invade from another dimension. It actually replaces the upper receiver from an AR-15 so you can swap between assault rifle and crossbow with a little tinkering. The payoff is at the end when they sell you that it comes with a picatinny rail system. For, you know, when you need a grenade launcher on your crossbow.

I don’t know anything about crossbows, all I know is that I want this weapon with every fiber of my being. I think that because I am a man I want this weapon of choice, a powerful weapon which requires intense skills and precision to be able to use it, yet you think you are Rambo when you have this in your possession. I don’t know the reason this weapon would invoke such feelings, but it would be great to have, who cares about customs, there has to be a way to bring it through the borders.

Review: Star Trek Enterprise

I have had this series for over two years and really didn’t feel compelled to start it, and now I regret not seeing it earlier. In less then a month and half I went through all four season of Enterprise, from season to season it just got better and better. Captain Archer (Scott Bakula) is the best captain of any Star Trek series I have seen, he was a developing Captain, from idealist to having made decisions that changed his outlook.

The full crew of the Star Ship pulls you in, Trip the Chief Engineer with his wit and his stubbornness to give up, T’Pol with her Vulcan Logic and her acceptance of human ways, Leutinant Reed the stiff Tactical Officer who found himself more and more attached to his captain, Dr. Flox one of the most interesting characters of the ship and a Doctor who lived by his ethics and took care of his patients, Hoshi the communications officer who had knack for figuring out other languages, and Ensim Mayweather who piloted the ship like no other.

There were parts when the show kept you on your toes, you could see the development of Star Fleet and how many of details of future of Star Fleet in these missions. The best part was hearing the hints such as “This is the beginning of The Final Frontier” or “I wonder whats going to happen with the Next Generation”, “To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before”. The last episode left me with a feeling of nostalgia, it felt strange to hear the voice of Captain Jean Luc Pecard, it felt good, something was right about this. Who ever said that this is the worst series of Star Trek was completely wrong, this shows the development of Star Fleet and the Federation, how things came together, this show ended on the right note but I wish there was more.
