You'd think that if anyone could drive a stick shift, it would be Bond. James Bond.

From the moment I heard that the next movie would be named "Casino Royale", something bugged me. Then I found it.

Star Trek: The Next Generation
Season 2, Episode 12.

"The Royale"

Most of the episode takes place in the, wait for it ... Casino!

Does not the budget allow enough to afford some driving lessons for da nu Bond? Heck, I'll go teach him how to drive a stick for a most reasonable fee - let's say 200,000 pounds...

Ian Fleming wrote Casino Royale years before Gene Roddenberry had conceived of "Star Trek" -- and if I'm not mistaken, the first film version, a comedy starring David Niven and Woody Allen, was made before the original "Star Trek"'s debut. Let alone "The Next Generation."
