Beam them down to deal with the Klingons? Nope.


This is a hypothetical terrorist attack on a US base. Knock on wood.

Giants fighting - sounds fun! Maybe robotic giants?

Nope, its a World War One thing. No giants or huge robots like the one of that one old Queen album.

So, Devil Bunny must be like Dr. Evil, right? He'll have a Moon-based "laser", or a time machine, or at least quasi-futuristically uniformed minions. Right? Sharks, with frikken laser beams for eyes?

Sadly, no.
