Every other Trek site seems to have a Badass Robau thread in their forums and I don't see why we should be any different. the whole thing started, apparently, when the co-writer, Roberto Ocri, said he wanted to show people Starfleet and that Captains were 'cool so and sos' (he used another phrase there, use your imaginations) - as we'd seen some pretty crap ones over the years - eg Harriman, Styles . . . so we got Robau.

Now Robau I liked a lot, even though we got to see so little of him. He was calm, brave, unflinching and, well, just bloody cool. The fans have picked up on this, particularly at trekbbs.com - where the 'Facts About Robau' thread has now reached over a hundred pages. A few of my faves from the first couple of pages are:

'- Just before Robau died he placed his hands on Kirk's face and said "remember"

'- V'Ger needed to merge with its creator, because a higher plane of existence was the only place V'Ger could hide from Captain Robau.'
'- V'Ger was wrong.'

'- If Captain Robau and Admiral Bill Adama got into a fight the universe would explode.'

It's worth a read, go to their forums and look in the Trek XI section. There are a lot of naughty words, you have been warned

It's funny isn't it how characters can appear for so little time and yet capture a huge chunk of fan reaction. In this case, is is the case other times, it is based on people liking what they see, some people starting a snowball and everyone else running with it. I bet you, there'll be Robau fan fiction and probably published fiction too.

I leave you with two Robau facts I came up with (though somewhere in those 100 pages they've already been thought of!)

- Robau is so badass that if the A-Team has a problem, if no one else can help them, and if they can find him, maybe they can hire...Captain Robau

- Robau is not made of win. Win is made of Robau.

That's simply continuing a long Starfleet tradition of badass bald French captains who inexplicably don't have a French accent.

Robau is so badass that people call him by different first names and everyone still knows who they're talking about.

Robau is so badass that he actually didn't die in Star Trek; he merely time traveled to the early 21st century to menace Tony Stark.

Robau is so badass, the Red Sea parts without him even being in the same reality.

Richard is better. A good English name. Unlike Pierre.

So Robau has replaced the Chuck Norris facts stuff (which is now a book you can buy at Barnes & Noble?? )??

In the novelisation yes his first name is given as Pierre...but officially it's Richard... or Richardo since the good Captain is from Cuba (and played by an arab actor *lol*)
