How stupid is the idea of the Prophets?

I mean its the perfect example of writers throwing in stupid ideas to make them look alien, in the end they(writers and the Prophets) only look retarded.

>Time what is this

>Destroy him! Or he will destroy us!

>death what is this

>pleasure what is this

its really hard to imagine anything existing without the concept of pleasure and pain.

>Time what is this

If you don't understand the concept of time you are defective.

>Destroy him! Or he will destroy us!

>death what is this

The literal fuck?

1) if you understand the concept of stooping to to exist you understand death. do your retarded

>death what is this

Makes you look retarded

Watching DS9 for the first time.

I never got the chance to really watch DS9 i remember like 5 episodes I watched these where:

<The one with the gambling aliens who teleport the officers into a game

<The planet of the warriors who fight and never die

<Lots of Ferengi episodes

<The holodeck episode where Sisko as a fictional James Bond like character gambles to prevent his death (the safeties where of) and talked to this James Bond like villain that he is on his sides and preses the button on his dooms day weapon to destroy the (fictional holodect) world. This pauses the villain and the rest of the crew has time to rescue Sisko

<The trip to Risa episode

<Some dominion episodes

So I decided to watch it from start to finish.

I was thinking S1 will be boring like watching paint dry.

There are some crazy episodes in S1 however its a handful of good episodes between mediocre ones.

I'm in S2 and the mix is some hood between loads of pointless and even boring ones.

Why are there so many episodes that are simply boring or uneventful.

02x10 Sanctuary

looks ok and is entertaining to watch however what even was the point of this episode?

Some aliens show up, they can not be understood by the universal translator (this could be a great idea for a episode however the translator translates them on its own = waisted opportunity).

The aliens are different.

These aliens are nasty.

They delude themselves based on some stupid old prophesy that Bajor is their homeland or place to go or something.

They want to go to Bajor.

Bajorans say NO.

one kid steals a shuttle or something for a unknown reason the shuttle has some defects and he explodes himself over Bajor on accidence.

The episode ends.

There are to many inconsequential episodes that are simply boring or even pointless.

And the show lives up to its name of being like watching paint dry.

DS9 lacks any high fiction (time travel, parallel episodes, really strange things) something that was often from the start in other series and something I like to watch even in other shows. Give me more Q, more time travel more holodeck malfunction episodes.

For a show that was supposed to be a long time story driven adventure it seriously lacks the long and story part from S1 and even into S2.

All important story events are about in 4 episodes and the other ones are simply boring.

I will keep this thread updated as I watch DS9.

If someone knows or has a list of what episodes to skip I appreciate it.

Similarities of Vulcans and Romulans

So I recently finished rewatching Amok Time, and I recall hearing Spock explain to Kirk that the pon farr is part of an ancient tradition that comes even before the time of Surak. This got me wondering about the Romulans, whom we know left Vulcan during the Time of Awakening. Is it possible that the Romulans still wrestle with the pon farr, and that they might retain some of the same Vulcan traditions for dealing with it? What else do the Romulans and Vulcans continue to share in common with one another, in terms of culture and tradition, if anything at all?

Unpopular Opinions

I thought we gonna have a thread like this. Buckle up for my hot takes:

- most of the dialog on ST is really clumsy and I find this to be irksome. While there are certainly good monologs, dual exchanges in ST always feel awkward and awfully infantile. It's like every character is constantly in exposition mode and the audience is never required to pick up on clues.

- Let's be honest, besides very fee exceptions like "The Visitor" most of the non-story episodes of DS9 are a snoozefest and filler. There is also zero exploration despite the station being situated next to a wormhole carrying them to the other end of the galaxy.

- despite being a boring movie, ST:TMP was the most Trekish movie, especially with its aesthetic.

- there is never going to be another "real" Trek series, ever. DS9 and even VOY despite its flaws were the last ones. This is because of the industry. Shows these days are all about "personal drama", superficial core issues, Chinese fortune cookie wisdoms in dialog form, massive pressure to have the ratings after season 1, constant SJW quota fullfullment, fast pace so the consumerist audience doesn't get bored. The only chance ever for another decent Trek series would be a completely independent project, non-profit, with crowdfunding. However, you'd catch Aids nonetheless due to the retarded Trekkie community, which would have the main influence over the show.

- post-First Contact uniforms are the best ones. DS9 would be way more enjoyable from the beginning if Avery Brooks shaved his head and got that uniform from the beginning.

- Also, Avery Brooks is a horrible actor.

- despite being left-liberal in tone, there are plenty of episodes that are quite American with neoconservative undertones. In the Pale Moonlight is basically a justification for a false flag to start a war. Old Klingons resemble the Japanese. ST VI was about the end of the Cold War with the Klangs selling out their own country for a Pizza Hut like Gorbachev.

Misconceptions Thread

Things that retarded fans seem to parrot as facts but are complete bullshit and grind your gears.

Here is a common one as an example:

USS Defiant - Sisko's ship - Facts:

>Was equipped with a Romulan cloaking device

>Said cloak was to be only used in Gamma Quadrant

>Also meant to be only operated by a Romulan Waifu that disappeared for whatever reason

>When the original Defiant was destroyed, the replacement did not have a cloaking device fitted

Somehow this translates to:

<Federation had developed cloaking technology

<All Defiant Class ships have cloaking devices

Shit like this makes me rage about the Trek fanbase.

Rating Scale

Since fags asked for me to give a rating on an episode when giving an overview here's my rating scale before there is autistic screeching, well more so than usual.

Ratings Explained:

>0-1

Truly awful and do yourself a favor and avoid watching an episode with this rating.

>2-3

Bad episodes that while you could suffer through there is no real need for you to put yourself through such torture.

>4-5

The pass mark. Decent episodes that are okay but you really won't be upset if you miss them.

>6-7

Good episodes that are worth a watch. There is not really any reason to avoid them.

>8+

Truly great episodes that you must watch.

Cringey SFDebris schtick

I know he's loved by many, largely for being one of the first and, production-wise, the most competent, Star Trek video reviewers and he's done good work, but does anyone else find some of Sonnenberg's act absolutely cringeworthy? Every time he starts putting on his evil Janeway voice for some of his gag attempts, you may as well automatically skip a minute, and his frequent pretension (like those character profile vids) is real sixth former analysis.

The 'all hail the overlord' business at the end of many of his vids is straight from the mind of what the spergiest Red Dwarf fan Warhammer painter would think is funny. It reminds me of those dweebs who Millman meets in the pub in Extras who love his sitcom.

What do people here make of him though?

TNG Rewatch - Season 2

For fags that have not read the previous thread I basically rewatch TNG while making dumping reaction pics and webms. The plan was to keep it all in one thread but it was getting very cluttered so going to make a thread for each so fags know what content is which. As always if you have a request for a scene to be screencapped/webm'd let me know and I will keep an eye out for it, but please only requests for Season 2 of TNG. If you have a Season 1 request use previous thread.

Rating Scale

My intention was in the last thread to just dump content and shitpost but it grew into a more of a mini-review of each episode. My scoring system might seem a little harsh at first but there is a reason for that; mainly I do not believe in throwing out high grades unless it is truly deserving and if you do it sort of cheapens scoring. To sum up in an example; while most fags would probably give an okay episode a 6 or 7 out of 10 I would tend to give it a 4.

Ratings Explained:

>0-1

Truly awful and do yourself a favor and avoid watching an episode with this rating.

>2-3

TNG Season 5 - Ratings & Discussion.

Hi, I hope someone can watch Star Trek with me and then we can rate & discuss.

Here's what I got so far (Format is episode number, rating out of 10, episode name, a brief description & notes with spoilers).

5x01 8/10 Redemption: Part 2 - Tasha Yar's half romulan daughter (Sela) is attempting to aid the Klingon house of Duras, Picard recruits more Federation ships to create a net to detect cloaked romulan ships, Worf is reinstated to his Starfleet position @3:45 Black female fleet admiral

5x02 3/10 Darmok - The Enterprise meets a species who's language can't be translated by the UT, They beam down Picard along with their captain. SF Debris gave this a 9/10 whilst acknowledging that ratings are relative to the series

5x03 7/10 Ensign Ro - The disgraced bajoran Ensign Ro is assigned to the Enterprise, Picard is ordered to track down a bajoran terrorist who attacked a federation colony

5x04 5/10 Silicon Avatar - The Enterprise gives chase to the crystalline entity that destroyed Data's colony

5x05 4/10 Disaster - Ship's systems are disrupted by a spacial anomaly of the week, Picard is stuck in a lift with 3 kids, Worf delivers Keiko's baby, Geordie & Dr. Crusher are stuck in a cargo bay with explosive containers, and Troi is reluctantly in command on the bridge. At the end Picard says "You have the bridge number one" and Riker & the girl both say "Aye sir"

5x06 6/10 The Game - An addictive video game with the power to control minds takes over the crew & Wesley must save the day

5x07 7/10 Unification I - Spock is missing, Picard & Data must go to Romulus to find him

5x08 8/10 Unification II - Spock strives for a reunification of Romulus & Vulcan but he is double crossed by someone working for Sela. Riker physically intimidates a ferengi in to giving him information. Data learning the Vulcan neck pinch was a nice touch

5x09 7/10 A Matter of Time - A historian from the 26th century visits the Enterprise, meanwhile a planet is facing a global natural disaster - What did Star Fleet do with the timeship? SF Debris gave this a 5/10

5x10 4/10 New Ground - Worf has trouble with his son Alexandra, meanwhile the Enterprise helps test a new form of propulsion called a soliton wave which threatens to destroy a planet

5x11 3/10 Hero Worship - Data rescues a boy from a damaged research ship, & the boy begins to imitate Data, meanwhile the Enterprise encounters an anomaly

5x12 3/10 Violations - Some psychics aboard cause Troi & Riker to fall in to comas, forgettable episode

5x13 3/10 The Masterpiece Society - The Enterprise finds a planet with human genetically engineered colonists that's heading for disaster @14:20 Picard says genetic engineering was a bad idea whose time has long passed @43:40 It's mentioned that the prime directive doesn't apply to humans. This episode is much wasted opportunity, we could have had a multi part episode with the augments taking over the ship similar to the Enterprise episode with Brent Spinner

5x14 6/10 Conundrum - The crew's memory is erased & the computer's memory altered to indicate they are at war with the Lysians. Troi beats Data at 3D chess

5x15 5/10 Power Play - The bodies of Troy, Data, & O'Brien are taken over by aliens during an away mission. This is one of the episodes where Brent Spiner gets to show his range. @12:00 is when Data angrily hits the computer screen BSOD.gif

ENT

So, I've started watching Enterprise and due to the popular opinion that it sucks ass my expectations were pretty low. But I'm 7 episodes in and I actually like it. Maybe because I'm just coming off of Voyager (which has possibly the least satisfying ending of all time, couldn't you have made 10 minutes of time for a real fucking wrap-up?) and am still suffering minor Janeway-related brain damage, but it seems to be a pretty decent show. The exploration of pre-Feddie Trek is interesting, the set design is good, at least on the NX-01, and the cast seem to be fairly competent. Archer is alright. And aside from going hot into the mpreg episode right at the start the stories have been solid. Does this turn into a flaming wreck later on or are the tales of how awful this show is exaggerated?

The Ferengi are a joke species

Ferengi Lets be honest no one can build up a society on greed etc.

The rules of acquisition are retarded beyond help.

If the ferengi where real and not retarded then the first generation ferengi would realize that not telling the rules to their kids is the best idea ever(and actually in accordance with the rules "exploit your family").

congratulations you have a worker that will not quit and works for no money, you only need to give him food and the minimum.

Teaching him the values of poverty can only be good.

Not to even speak of how their society would collapse within days not even speaking of years.

Not to speak how devastating it is to literally say these things to your customers and how bad these rules are even from a business perspective

>Once you have their money, you never give it back.

Looks like someone never heard of net benefits(calculated in money) and what salting/bridge burning with customers is.

Sometimes its simply more profitable to replace something and suffer a loss to have a customer who will continue to buy from you on a regular basis if the profits from his participation are significantly greater then the cost of replacing a defective item (you want this graphed mathematically?).

Noticed that while there were threads for individual Trek video games, there wasn't a general thread up.

Thread should be self explanatory, discuss Trek Vidya, Mods for games, or games that would satisfy that Trek itch.

Here is the volafile link that often gets used. So far only Klingon Academy is uploaded but will add more games as good working downloads come available.

Constitution Class

After looking up about this ship class and the history of it, was it actually ever good? For a Frontline Heavy Cruiser the Federation seemed to build hardly any of them considering how many of it's replacement Excelsior Classes they built. Was it a luxury instead of being a serious ship? It always seemed that the Miranda Class was a far cheaper option that could do it's job nearly as well.

The Borg

To open, the Borg are one of the most interesting things in the Star Trek cannon to me but for that same reason the way they're portrayed just makes me autistically angry about the stupid inconsistencies and just plain out wrong shit in the series.

Professed goal of the Borg: to achieve perfection by adding the perspectives and abilities of all other species to themselves

Inconsistent iterations of the Borg:

1. The Borg is a collective mind

2. The Borg are a collective of networked minds

3. The Borg are meat slaves that serve the Queen

Wrong shit/counterproductive motives that derive from these inconsistent portrayals as well as stand alone problems

A. Obviously the first part is one of the biggest problems, considering that the moral status of the Borg changes with each iteration. For instance: In case 1 from the above the Borg are achieving their goal to some extent and really aren't exactly harming anyone, inasmuch as assumption into a collective mind is not slavery but would rather subjectively feel like a huge amount of extra brain power and ideas being added to your own. Further, due to the merging of the minds in this way the Borg get to make use of drones without moral qualms, in that each individual is simultaneously self-identical to the collective mind and is owned thereby more like a limb than a person. Further, in this model each mind added to the collective is basically immortal, as all minds added have a complete continuity of experience through the collective and thereby, by identity principle, exist even after their original body dies. Additionally, the Borg achieve their goal in part in this scenario as the collective mind becomes more complex and receives new perspectives with each assimilation. In case 2. from the above, you lose basically all the advantages from scenario one and drone use becomes immoral as each mind is an individual still attached to a body. Further, they fail to achieve their stated goal as the collective is made up of a network that does not retain lost input from dead drones. In case 3. from the above the Borg become cartoonish villains and fail their original goal entirely as the Queen takes nothing from the collective and crushes the uniqueness they claim to want.

B. The Borg had amazing potential to function as an effective counter argument to the individualistic moralism of the Federation, with a more fleshed out version of iteration 1., from the above, Borg they or rather IT could have had a very valid standpoint on ethics, a society of a single mind handily avoids almost every problem that the other species have, no rebellions, no wars, conflict is impossible inside of the Borg, every single ill of society is just impossible in that structure.

C. How the Borg ended up functioning was incredibly disappointing, inasmuch as they basically became the avatar of the common American trope of "collectivism" that gets thrown at everyone and everything that doesn't suck the neoliberal cock. Star Trek had real potential to demystify non-individual or unitary modes of ethics and failed so spectacularly that they're indistinguishable from Cold War era propaganda at times.

D. Assimilated biotechnological hybrids as your sole unit and population is retarded design. With the level of tech present in the collective they could have easily just abducted the brain by itself, added it to the collective mind as presented in iteration 1. and used engineered biotech or just pure tech bodies as foot soldiers if needed, which they largely wouldn't be. There's no reason for Borg cubes to be filled with walking corpses, it's stupid and doesn't add to their stated goal as the drone physiology is usually incredibly homogeneous and, if specialized, is artificially so, meaning that unique physical capabilities are not added to the collective what ever.

You are cordially invited to a Bad Movie Night

Good evening /strek/,

I am the Board Owner of >>>/bmn/ and run the weekly Bad Movie Night stream some of you may have heard about. As you can see in the subject line, /strek/ is invited to join in the celebration stream for BMN's second anniversary.

I hope you will join us this Saturday for a selection of some audience and host favorites from the past year. Six movies and two shorts; some becoming favorites for being genuinely enjoyable, others for being comical train wrecks. The night will consist of fellow kids being battered up, "IF YOU DIE IN THE GAME…", shooting the disco, live action anime, healthy eating and undead beating, calls to the CIA, and regrets of engagement. If you're curious as to what the lineup of the night will be, please see the attached invitation flyer.

Information about the anniversary stream can be found on >>>/bmn/638 .

Also, I figure this board would be a good place to ask for any bad space faring movie recommendations. My stock of space films is low, and I'm always looking to add to my collection. If you have any suggestions, I would be grateful.

Cheers /strek/, have a good night.

>Inventor of warp drive

More like a fraud. History is a lied agreed upon. The government already had warp drive. The elite in Star Trek planned WWIII and went underground for a few decades. When the time was right they sent their boy Zefram up to build the warp drive. How else did he get an intact rocket? The proof to prove this is the reactor of the Phoenix. There is no way a post-apocalyptic society can produce a reactor to power a warp drive even in a small craft such as the Phoenix. After Zefram pulled his little stunt the elite came out of their underground bunkers and declared a new era of humanity. From then on the march towards a globalist Masonic government began.

Star Trek First Contact is going predictive programming to tell you the game plan for the 21st century. The world is drowning in debt and the elite always use war as a way of getting out of the mess they create. WWIII is coming and all the major nations are arming up right now.

Rewatching Trek

Barring TOS, which first watched through and through sometime last year, I haven't seriously sat down to watch the series since I first watched them in middle and early high school. I was still a bit bluepilled at the time, and just by retrospect I can see I'd view many of the episodes in a different light.

I'm watching DS9 at the moment and it really pisses me off how close this show is to being a masterpiece.

Why did the show have to center around these lame ass aliens and their gay religion? If the Prophets are really that great, they wouldn't have let the Cardassians occupy Bajor. There is not one likeable Bajoran in the entire series, and don't even get me started on this cunt. It could have just been about the Dominion, Klingons, Cardassians, and the Maquis and the show would have been fine.

Don't ever compare TNG to Voyager again, they may have similar "dynamics" such as an insistence on "problem of the day" episodes, but Voyager unfortunately mistook "quality" for "throwing money at costumes and set design" instead of writing a good fucking show.

Canon early earth strek tech

I haven't kept up with trek shit for about 2 fucking decades, but still have a bit of a soft spot for this shit. Something I've had an interest in lately is early earth tech from the Star Trek universe. Ships and politics and general living and shit before Kirk. Mainly the tech though.

It always seemed they were all show but no performance; that while their ships TNG era had powerful weapons and strongly shielded they had no speed and were relatively fragile. Almost like they were compensating for something.

They also felt rather mysterious without actually being rather too edgy which really is rare to do all things considered.

Bajorans are absolute shit

Lets look honestly how Bajorans are in DS9.

They are superstitious shit throwing racists who are incapable of forming a society.

Case in point

"In the Hands of the Prophets"

Here we see that Bajorans are so backwards that they refuse the teaching about wormholes.

Not only this they will start their racist+religious shit instantly over this.

Not only do we get bombings and assassinations the other Bajoran racists will refuse to sell to humans because all Bajorans are fucken racists.

Now

"In the Hands of the Prophets" is a mild example we get wonderful* Bajoran behavior like the circle who thinks attacking non-Bajorans is a great way to make a point.

Considering all the assassinations and government overthrows I don't think Bajorans are capable of ever holding a stable government.

I don't see why any other species should simply not kick these savages in the teeth every time they start shit like this and think attacking non-Bajorans at every occasion.

Not only is this uncivilized its extremely retarded and delusional from these Bajoran extremists (are there even non-extremist Bajorans?) they seam not to realize they are the but joke of the galaxy and everyone can walk over them with exceptions of minor or non militaristic civilizations like the Ferengi.

Do these "fighters" really think antagonizing everyone else will make them better?

Or do they think they can single handedly win against every galactic super power?

Because the Cardassian used them for a dormat for a good while.

Do they have a fetish and hard on for being oppressed and occupied?

Was there even a point where Bajorans where not shit throwing savages in canon?

So, if I were send through space time and ended up on the Enterprise and taken in as Picard's honored guest would I be able to replicate opioids from a few pills that were in my pocket? Would I be given special privileges to do this by citing my culture and forcing everyone to respect it?

R: 161 / I: 39 / P: 7 [R] [G] [-]

So, I just finished watching Voyager for the first time.

Honestly, while it didn't tip TNG's season 6, 90% of it is better then 90% of TNG, while the 10% of TNG gold can't really beat Voyager's best (the second Silver Blood episode really comes to mind, along with Author, Author). Especially the first few seasons: it was painful getting through the first season of TNG, Season 1-2 of Voyager are both about half that painful but a lot more sleep-inducing.

The ending was "eh", not as good as TNG's or DS9 (obviously), no buildup whatsoever.

What did set it apart from TNG are the characters: outside of Data, TNG was boring as shit as everyone was somehow perfect. They were huge dicks to Barclay at first, and in VOY his new bosses are actually supportive and friendly.

Now, VOY has their character's problem (Janeway flip-flopping, Chakotay never really given any proper screentime, Tuvok only there for the "wizzap dis is illogical as shizzle my dizzle yo", SoN's character arc not really handled well) but honestly if they'd have announced a season 8 of either VOY or TNG, I'd rather have Voy S8 than TNG S8 if only because the characters being much more believable.

Welcome to the Annual Pussy Snorkeling Championship! This year sponsored by Damar's Special Reserve Kanar, drink it before he does!

Coming to you from Casperia Prime, boy do we have a special line up this year folks!

Starting off we have last years winner and favourite to win; the Remover of Hasperat, the destroyer of Bajoran pussy everywhere, he's not just any Cardassian, he's Gul Dukat! Will he go the distance and challenge the record laid down by James T Kirk? Who knows, but if anyone can come close it's him!

Next up we have a newcomer who you may be forgiven as being some random Pakled that has wandered in confused into the studio but don't let looks fool you! Grebnedlog battle record is already nearly as long as Gowron's! Speaking of which Gowron will not be attending this year due to being disqualified by refusing to have his "d'k tahg" cleaned before taking part, stirring quite a lot of controversy!

Here we have someone you are all well acquainted with by now, he's the USS Enterprise's resident Chad and last year's runner up! Commander William T Riker! Will he take the throne from Dukat? If anyone can he's the one to beat!

Last up we have the wandering rogue, the outrageous Captain Thadium Okona! Considered quite a ladies man in certain circles but will that do him any good here when he's up against professionals? While certainly no favourite to win he may yet surprise us! Certainly one to keep an eye on!

Now we have been introduced to our contenders it's time to let them get settled in. What techniques will they use? How far will they endure? We will find out after some messages from Quark!

Holodecks

I can understand the importance of the warp drive and the poetic nobility of wanting to explore the stars and such, but why is holographic technology not rightfully regarded as perhaps the most important, revolutionary advancement of the 24th century? Why was it only after the Doctor was brought back from Voyager that they realized they could slap a holo emitter in a room and fill it with tireless workers? They could create armies of holographic soldiers if they felt like it. There's certainly enough prior incidents that prove holograms can wield deadly force and if they need, and one poorly worded computer command is all it takes to give a holographic character self-awareness and genius-level intellect.

In more than on situation, characters have been created from what amounts to a full body scan, a psych evaluation, and a starfleet wikipedia article on an individual, and that's more than enough to make someone who could pass as a fully sentient/sapient being. Even if you don't need fully self-aware beings, holo characters are still more than enough to interact with on their own.

Tell me, is there a canon excuse why this technology wasn't implemented everywhere? Roddenberry's optimism about the future may have excluded the possibility that everyone would just lock themselves in a chamber consisting of a holodeck array, a replicator, and some basic hygienic equipment?

Excuse a /k/fags curiosity

A phaser seems to be an omni-directional weapon that comes out of a ring on the disk part of the ship. It seems to always be able to hit an enemy ship regardless of position of firing ship or enemy ship.

So what's the point of maneuvering? Wouldn't it make more sense to stay in place, face the least important part of your ship to the enemy, and divert the power from shields that aren't facing the enemy into shields that are facing the enemy?? By flying around all you're doing is exposing more vital parts of your ship to enemy fire, and there doesn't seem to be any benefit.

If the technology reaches a point where stopping powah and ammo capacity becomes relatively same, would the shape and size of direct energy weapons favor a submachine gun size instead of full length rifles.

Would you rather have a makleth instead of the larger bat'leth due to the extreme short distance of melee CQC in space ship boarding or battle situations. Do you think Worf is a klingon weeaboo who is far too focused on muh million times folded bat'leth because HONOR when he could have got a lot more more out of practical shorter bladed klingon weapons.

Man who rescued Star Trek: TNG bridge set now faces child porn charges

>Huston Huddleston, the man who gained some nerd cred in August 2012 after he "saved the bridge" of a discarded Enterprise-D touring set, has been arrested in Southern California on child pornography and other related felony charges.

>In total, Huddleston now faces four charges, including one under California Penal Code 311.11(c)(1), for possessing "more than 600 images." If convicted, Huddleston would face a minimum sentence of a year in county jail or at least 16 months in state prison. (It is not immediately clear why the criminal complaint, which Ars obtained at the Los Angeles courthouse, has four charges when online court records only show three.)

>Huddleston is currently being held by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on $750,000 bail. He is being represented by David Moore, of the Los Angeles Public Defender's Office. Moore did not immediately respond to Ars' request for comment. On May 22, BleedingCool.com reported that Huddleston has pleaded not guilty.

>The April 2018 arrest, which only became publicly known last week, has seemingly all but ended Huddleston's years-long and as yet very incomplete restoration efforts.

Why Star Trek: Discovery is Problematic AF 02/14/2018

by NerdyBlackGirlBlog staff writer; N'shonda Williams While recent NETFLIX Science-Fiction series Star Trek: Discovery has been heralded by many progressives for its diverse cast and willingness to address Lgbtqiapk issues, we must address the series many negative aspects. While Michael Burnham (portrayed actress Sonequa Martin-Green) has been praised for her role as an intelligent and successful woman of color, let's look at her character through an inter-sectional lens: The young Michael Burnham is literally and metaphorically rescued as a child by Sarek (White actor James Frain) and adopted by him. in many ways this represents the many millions of indigenous young people taken from their homes to be 're-educated' and 'civilized' by white christian colonials such as the aboriginal children of Australia. Not only is Burnham raised by Sarek and his family, but also Sarek Mind-Melds with the child; an invasive process which leaves Burnham literally brainwashed into adopting Vulcan norms of speech, clothing, and culture. As a woman of color the message to me and millions of other young girls is clear - if you want to succeed in life you must not only emulate the prevailing (i.e. white) culture but also mimic their hairstyles, and even modes of thought. The character's very name (Michael), mannerisms and short hair also hint that if women wish to succeed in the workplace they must adopt a patriarchal male-led behavioural norms. In short, the message is - ditch our female qualities and blackness at the door and you might just be successful in modern America. The Klingons, a major protagonist in this series have been panned by fans for their radical redesign; but my issues with them are not aesthetic. They are clearly meant to represent 'the Other' Jews, Muslims, PoC. With their alien appearances, violent, greedy ways and bizarre religious practices they embody every Trump supporter's hateful vision of non-whites turned up to 11. Discovery's ultimate message is that yes there are people out there who aren't like you (the wasp viewer) and yes they are strange, ugly and violent - your prejudices were normal and correct all along. ST:D is in many ways like a Trojan horse, on the outside it is a progressive seeming show; but inside it contains toxic ideas harmful to those viewers without the necessary information to deconstruct them. It is disappointing to us that this show which embodies sexism, racism and xenophobia ever made it to air and we only hope that the next incarnation of Star Trek can offer some positive messages.

Shekel when the bombs fell; Tomahawk and Assad at Damascus; His nukes UNCOVERED!

I am going to be writing a novel series that runs roughshod over some more tiresome parts of canon. Hey if Alex (((Kurtzman))) can do it why not me? Would you read it?

Setting:

Most of the events take place from 2389 to 2394. The show should focus on the region of space occupied by Cardassia, Ferenginar, Breen, Maquis-Bajor alliance etc. In contrast to other Star Trek shows the mainline heavies like Federation, Klingons and Romulans should have almost no appearances, as they are busy fucking each other over on a stellar scale in the aftermath of the Borg invasion. DS9 will barely be mentioned as a minor starbase compared to the other shit Bajorans have in system.

Timeline and Key Background:

2370s - Dominion war, you should know what happened then. More background would be that the Cardassian empire collapsed, they are a fourth rate power and the official Cardie government controls slightly less territory than the Tzenkethi. Most former Cardassian controlled slave worlds have gained independce in a huge chaotic area of non-aligned worlds known as the "Non Aligned Expanse" (NAE), they're mostly warring with each other as foreign powers try to gain influence there. So many Guls have gone rogue warlord and pirate, raiding the space lanes from Ferenginar to Kronos, that the word "pirate" is synonymous with Gul.

2381 - Borg invasion. Federation, Romulus, and Klingons are completely fucked. Galaxy is more anarchic and many minor powers form, because the three major ones had their fleets cut by 2/3rds due to the Borg invasion. Also a lot of non-aligned action is present, because most of the major fleets have been destroyed even large empires like Klingons or Federation have to resort to terrorism and sabotage to make a dent. Also so much weapons tech is on the market there are a lot of warships are in service of criminals, piracy is so common that every cargo ship has to be heavily armed just to make it in one piece.

2382 - Typhon Pact is formed between Romulans Russians, Tzenkethi, Breen Syrians, Gorn and Tholians. Also in my universe it includes the remnant of the Cardassian nation, who pretends to be neutral to trick the Federation. Typhon Pact is the dominant power in universe imo, and is mostly trying to stop a weakened Federation from rebuilding in the aftermath of the Borg attacks. Their tactics are brinkmanship, minor conflicts, shady raids, terrorist attacks, sabotage, stealth attacks. Also the Typhon pact ally of Kinshaya is fighting Klingons fiercely. Typhon Pact and the Federation are the major outside (unseen) influences of my story.

Sulu to star in new series about bad touches

A former model and actor is accusing Star Trek icon George Takei of sexual assault in 1981. The accuser, Scott R. Brunton, who was 23 at the time of the alleged incident, claims that Takei took advantage of him when he was most vulnerable.

"This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it," Brunton tells The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. "It is one of those stories you tell with a group of people when people are recounting bizarre instances in their lives, this always comes up. I have been telling it for years, but I am suddenly very nervous telling it."

Brunton says he was living in Hollywood in 1981, working as a waiter and beginning a career as a commercial actor and model when he met a 43- or 44-year-old Takei one evening at Greg's Blue Dot bar. The men exchanged numbers and would call one another from time to time as well as run into each other at clubs, Brunton says. When Brunton broke up with his then-boyfriend, he spoke with Takei. "He said, 'Let me know what your new number is' and I did. And not long after we broke up and I moved out, George called me," Brunton recalls.

Takei, as Brunton tells it, invited him to dinner and the theater. "He was very good at consoling me and understanding that I was upset and still in love with my boyfriend," Brunton says. "He was a great ear. He was very good about me spilling my heart on my sleeve."

The two men went back to the actor's condo for a drink the same night. "We have the drink and he asks if I would like another," Brunton recalls. "And I said sure. So, I have the second one, and then all of a sudden, I begin feeling very disoriented and dizzy, and I thought I was going to pass out. I said I need to sit down and he said sit over here and he had the giant yellow beanbag chair. So I sat down in that and leaned my head back and I must have passed out."

"The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my pants down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear," Brunton says. "I came to and said, 'What are you doing?!' I said, 'I don't want to do this.' He goes, 'You need to relax. I am just trying to make you comfortable. Get comfortable.' And I said, 'No. I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off and he said, 'OK, fine.' And I said I am going to go and he said, 'If you feel you must. You're in no condition to drive.' I said, 'I don't care I want to go.' So I managed to get my pants up and compose myself and I was just shocked. I walked out and went to my car until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that."

THR spoke to four longtime friends of Brunton — Norah Roadman, Rob Donovan, Stephen Blackshear and Jan Steward — who said that he had confided in them about the Takei encounter years ago.

Takei's rep, Julia Buchwald, tells THR, "George is traveling in Japan and Australia and not reachable for comment." Takei, now 80, rose to fame playing Hikaru Sulu on the original Star Trek television series. He is also an author and activist and has been an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ rights.

you want to know what REALLY bothers me about std? that it takes so much damn time for anything to happen. the main klingon speaks extra slow, his teeth are even more fucked up, and the scenes are always in klingon. commander nonbinary "my hair is the only thing straight about me" spends so fucking long outside the ship preparing to launch towards the unidentified sensor blip, we even get the full countdown. many long shots spent looking at things in near silence. an entire opening scene where the main characters violate the prime directive to save a tiny group of insect things followed by "let's walk in a giant circle in the desert."

this episode could have been an hour and given us more time for the follow up episode. speaking of, the actual episode runtime, including the opening title sequence, is 40 minutes. the show got shorter so they could run more commercials. what's already there is detritus enough, how long before an hour long episode is only 30 minutes of actual show?

Pah-Wraiths are of Cardassia?

So the Prophets keep on saying over and over again that they are "of Bajor". Also, there used to be spirits inside of the Celestial Temple, but were cast out and called Pah-Wraiths. This brings to mind a correlation between the book of Genesis and DS9, where the head angel, Lucifer, was cast out of heaven. This makes me believe that at one point in time that the Pah-Wraiths were the same as the Prophets, but did something to achieve their disdain.

However, what makes more sense is that possibly maybe the Pah-Wraiths are of Cardassia. Going back into ancient Bajoran history, Bajorans made contact with Cardassians millennia ago, and the entire plotline of giving Bajor 1,000 years of peace deeply involves Cardassians, and also a great penance is exacted on their people and populated worlds as well (through the liberation of their race from the Dominion).

Also, we know that Capt. Sisko is half-Prophet, so we know that the Prophets didn't just choose him at random, this was a timeline long in the making. That being said, the Pah-Wraiths also most likely have similar abilities to see far into the future but chose a Cardassian as their "Emissary" or whatever, which was also likely as deliberate.

This then rekindles the question, were the Pah-Wraiths originally of Cardassia? I've heard on some sites that I looked at for a minute that some people believe that the Prophets were something like a race of extremely ancient Bajorans that evolved beyond the physical plane. Maybe perhaps the Pah-Wraiths were much of the same but from Cardassia? This would explain the inherent struggle between the Pah-Wraiths and the Prophets, and why they were cast out of the Celestial Temple.

Treaty of Algeron thread

>That treaty is the biggest mistake we ever made; it's kept us from exploiting a vital area of defense!

>That treaty has kept us in peace for 60 years! And as a Starfleet Officer, you're supposed to uphold it.

– Rear Admiral Erik Pressman and Captain Jean-Luc Picard

>In order to justify all of the measures of this edict (Treaty of Algeron), the Federation had to be branded as the guilty party. This is a procedure which is, however, just as simple as it is impossible. This would mean that in future, the vanquished will always bear the blame for conflicts, for the victor will always be in a position to simply establish this as a fact.

– President of the United Federation of Planets, Jaresh-Inyo

Was the Treaty of Algeron indeed the biggest mistake in Federation history? And is there a rift between Starfleet Command and the Federation Council as it seems that Starfleet Command doesn't care about it all? Even with the treaty in effect Starfleet sent Kirk and the Enterprise into Romulan space to steal a cloaking device. The elaborate ruse was successful and they acquired the cloaking device. Years later they tried to refine this technology on the Pegasus - again under direct order from Starfleet Command. And 12 years later, after the remains of the Pegasus were discovered, Starfleet Intelligence sent admiral Eric Pressman to recover the device. Why did they chose the Enterprise for that mission and not a ship with a more 'hawkish' captain like, Benjamin Maxwell, who would do anything for the survival for his species. Weren't they aware what an apparatchik Picard was and that he would betray his race because of 'muh orders'?

They should have brought that guy on board and booted Neelix at the nearest habitable planet.

Small moment of hope

I started watching Voyager and I just got to watch Mortal Coil.

>Neelix gets blasted in the dick by protomatter

>Tom tries to revive him but fails because he's a failure himself

>Gets taken to sickbay and Doctor goes "Welp I guess he's fucking dead m80"

>Moment of sadness and whatever, Janeway says it's a decent idea to mourn him for a goddamned week

And for some dumb reason I had that small moment of hope that maybe he was dead for real. I mean, Kes transcends or something because she's so good and smart and everyone loves her, the important thing is that we may never see her again. Maybe Neelix could also go away? Nope. Fucking Seven shows up out of fucking nowhere Why was she in sickbay at the moment anyway? and uses her fucking Borg voodoo nanoprobes to revive him and we go on to an awful Neelix episode.

Has Picard ever developed a meaningful, static relationship – either romantic or friendship – of any kind with any member of the crew?

I know that he and Guinan have a past which is probably more spiritual than friendship or romance, so that probably counts. However, I think they really only touch on that during the Best of Both Worlds where she was consoling Riker by telling him that, if she can let Picard go, so can he. I don't recall much other depth into their relationship other than that.

Then there was Vash, but she's an in-and-out character in the series and doesn't really count because she's never around long enough to convey any meaningfulness of their past.

He and Wesley got kinda chummy when they were stranded on that planet with the dude who was quenching his thirst with alcohol, but that was fleeting. I am sure he went right back to hating Wesley again afterward.

The Naked Now doesn't count when he was getting all flirty with Crusher the inhibitions of everyone on the crew were all lowered.

Lastly, the time that Picard and Riker were engaging in anal sex in Ten Forward after hours also doesn't count since they pretended it never happend after the fact and that happened in the second season.

Overall, Picard doesn't seem to really develop much of a relationship with anyone. It wasn't until the very last episode that he finally joined the crew for poker in spite of being invited several times over the span of the series.

Birth of the Federation

>What is it?

Masters of the Orion Star Trek Edition. Even supposedly made by the same devs. It has recently been packed together with tons of mods and fixes to run on more modern systems without the need for a disc.

>Where do I download?

https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/get-files?cw_action=fileview&file_id=1958

>Whoa those instructions seem complicated

Not really, it's only there to help the most vicious of mouthbreathers install it or if you were retarded enough to get Windows 10. It's basically first two boxes ticked from install typically if you want to just play vanilla.

>What can you do in it?

You can conquer the galaxy via conquest or diplomacy playing the 5 major Alpha Quadrant powers. Use espionage and sabotage to gain leverage over opponents, even introduce biological weapons into someone's ecosystem killing millions and blame someone else for it. You can also build a subspace graviton field and make Bajor pay for it.

>How do the Federation play?

Like an attention whoring creepy girlfriend who wants to be everyone's friend. If you go to war with too many races your people will likely rebel. Ships focus more on defence and all rounded. Uses Diplomacy to gain power over a lot of Minor Races by making them become Members.

>How do the Klingons play?

Viking raiders. If you aren't fighting or make peace your people will get pissed off and likely rebel. That said they are surprisingly capable at diplomacy and will often have more warlike Minor Species waiting round the corner to join them. Have some very good fast and hard hitting ships plus their non-combat ships have weapons. A few of their ships also have cloaks.

>How do the Romulans play?

Like what North Korea wants to be. Tell everyone to GTFO their space and keep to themselves so naturally suck at diplomacy. Their ships are slow but powerful and all of them have cloaking devices. Have very good espionage and sabotage ability so if you are facing or playing them make sure your internal security rating is high.

>How do the Cardassians play?

We want it, we'll take it by whatever methods. Capable in conquest and diplomacy. Have a poor economic penalty at start and ships work best in squadrons. The only faction that can match the Romulans in terms of spying. Best at playing other factions against each other.

>How do the Ferengi play?

Like Jews. Be a happy merchant and make profit whenever you can. Get bonus amounts of trade routes and only need Non-Aggression Treaties to trade. Their ships are meh but cheap and can be spammed out using shekel making powers.

>What are Minor Races?

The weird eared and forehead creatures you see in Star Trek Episodes. While they may not have a lot of strength each race has a unique structure that can benefit your Empire which you can gain access to either through conquering them or by them becoming a member of your Empire. Some are Science focused, while others are Militaristic etc. Membership is often preferable to Conquest with most as they will provide you a developed system without the need to declare martial law every few turns.

Is there anything more dangerous to a Starfleet officer than their own terminals? It seems like anytime anything goes wrong, the first thing to go are the consoles, exploding with enough force to kill redshirts instantly but still be immediately usable by the next redshirt.

Ship Modeling Thread

I want to get into a bit of Trek model-building. I've been looking around and it appears the most common scale commercially is 1:1000 with 1:1400 being seen a lot, too. I see a lot of 1400 ships that appear to be unavailable in 1:1000 scale so i'm looking hard at 1:1400. However, the Polar Lights 1:350 studio scale kits for Connie and Connie Refit look absolutely boss. They're just expensive as fuck (and that doesn't even include extras like lighting kits) - like $300 US. An additional cool thing about the 350's like the Polars is you can get a cheap Bird of Prey model in that same scale and have the classic film showdown in accurate size proportions for a marginal bit more time, effort, and cash. There is also 1:2500 scale mentioned on some forums but I haven't done enough reading to figure out what the significance is with something that small.

Another far-fetched idea I have in the back of my head is custom fabrication orders from China or 3D printing locally. It might be possible to group order or custom-make the various parts for Star Trek ships - bootleg style - and start our own kitbash club for way cheaper than the primo models. We could also do it in a more common scale like 1:1000 because a lot of people want quality models but not everybody wants them 3' long like the Polar Lights kits.

Also, miniatures and prop-replicas thread. Check the catalog for toys and merch thread.

If you don't have a clue what I am on about, basically it was a tabletop game where you got to use ships in a Star Trek setting when everyone was at war. Fairly typical game in terms of base mechanics, ships have movement and points costs, move in hexes, but then there is a whole heap of autism to go with it including power output, boarding parties and well frankly a fuckton of other shit too long to go on about.

It was actually fun and had an interesting setting, plus had decent lore about the various Empires which were often talked about but you don't see shit about.

Because we've left the Federation, and that's the one thing you can't accept. Nobody leaves paradise. Everyone should want to be in the Federation. Hell, you even want the Cardassians to join. You're only sending them replicators because one day they can take their 'rightful place' on the Federation Council. You know, in some ways, you're even worse than the Borg.
