ez pz. especialy consideirng the ship is going to be destroyed trying to fight the borg cube conventionally any way.

seems the borg weren't all that powerful at all. wouldn't last a day against the klingons for example, considering how many of them would be willing to do kamikaze tactics as described above.

Captain Picard Returns?

Looks like Picard is returning in a brand new Star Trek series. However, isn't he old as FUCK right now? He's 78 and could literally die any minute. I don't see this series going very far. Plus, with the latest introduction of the pozzed Odyssey series, it's safe to say that any new St series will be pozzed as well. After all Picard is just another Trump-hating celebrity who would agree to anything that involves subverting the science fiction we all love with some queer revisionism.

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?

/voyager/ General

See title. Now I know Voyager is often overshadowed by the other series, notably DS9 and TNG, but it still beats Discovery by a long shot.

Anyone else think that the writers shouldn't have had the Vidiians obtain a cure to the phage? IMO they should have set them up to attempt to invade Qo'nos in the alpha quadrant after discovering that Klingons have immunity to the phage. Voyager would have to take responsibly of accidentally introducing the Klingons to the Vidiians (the latter who are infamous for their organ-harvesting practices). It could be neat to watch the Klingons face the threat of having their entire race harvested in a similar way in which the Borg attempted to assimilate Earth.

2019 Summer Infinity Cup

GREETINGS /strek/

The Infinity Cup is returning once again, and 8chan's boards will be fighting it out on the pitch to claim divegrass supremacy. As a board that has participated in the Cup at one point or another in its history, you are invited to the reveal stream for 2019 Summer edition of the Cup. On Saturday June 22nd, at 3 PM EDT/7 PM UTC, on cytu.be/r/8cup I'll be giving you guys an early look at the Cup's 5th edition, which will include revamped aesthetics, team stadiums and other quality of life improvements I've figured out how to do in PES 17. Hopefully this will get anons back on board with the Cup, considering it has struggled mightily since its 2nd incarnation.

So how is it going to go down? I'll be staging a couple of exhibition matches between teams using their rosters from the last Cup, and we'll shitpost our merry way through the stream. Once the stream ends, entries will be open for the Cup, and boards can start putting together/editing their rosters and kits. Entries will close in early July, the field will be determined, and the Group Draw will take place approximately a week before the Cup kicks off in August. I'm also hoping to possibly introduce managers for the Cup, although I'm still working out the details to keep this from devolving into a namefag dick measuring contest. I hope you all will tune in, and in case you aren't caught up on your board's history, I've provided some links below to get you caught up:

>Season 2 Status Report:

Starfleet sends the USS Fidget Spinner to investigate seven mysterious red energy bursts and a creature called the red angel. These phenomena are somehow connected to Spock, but he's in the space nuthouse so nobody can ask him. Also, everyone is sad. Michael is sad about Spock and later she's sad about practically fucking everything. Stamets is sad that his boyfriend died, but then he comes back to life, but that doesn't work out so he's sad about that too. Dr. Culber is sad that he came back to life, then he gets angry about it, then he gets sad again. Tyler is sad that he can't be with either of his stronk wimmens (the Klingorc emperor and Michael) and he's sad about having to send his newborn son to Klingon Tibet. Pike is sad that he keeps getting cucked at every turn and that nobody takes him seriously. Tilly is sad because her imaginary spore parasite friend had to go away. The only person who's not sad is Saru who uncovered an evolutionary lie about his entire species and turned into a Chad overnight (but not really).

As the investigation goes on the ship encounters a giant space brain which uses its last moments of life to download all of its memories into Discovery's computer. Meanwhile, Spock escapes the loony bin and Michael has some Family Drama (TM) with Sarek and Amanda, then goes off to find Spock on her own. She takes him to Talos IV where the Talosians fix his mind, but not his autism. He explains that he met the red angel and it showed him a vision of the future where all life in the galaxy is wiped out. He now has memories of that future and Section 31 wants to know what he knows. You know, for "science." While investigating one of the red energy bursts, a time rift opens up and Discovery gets attacked by one of its own probes which came back from the future all souped up. The probe hacks into Airiam, the cyborg girl background character, who immediately starts acting shady.

Admiral Exposition tells the crew they need to go to Section 31 HQ because while everything else has been going on, their special AI threat assessment system called "Control" (henceforth called Skynet) has stopped responding. When they arrive, they find out that Skynet has gone rogue, killed everyone, and is controlling Airiam in order to download all the data from the giant space brain so it can become sentient (Isn't it already?) and kill the whole galaxy like in Spock's visions. Airiam dies in the same episode where she's given any development, but not before she tells Michael that everything happening is because of (((Her))) and something called Project Daedalus. Investigating Daedalus reveals that the red angel super suit was designed by Section 31 as part of a "temporal arms race" with the Klingons and that the angel's bio-signature is none other than Michael Burnham herself.

Stamets, Culber, Tilly, and Georgiou figure out a way to trap the red angel which requires them to all state their sexual preferences for some reason. The plan almost kills Michael, but she's rescued at the last second and SURPRISE! the red angel is actually Michael's mother, who was thought to be dead. She stole the Project Daedalus super suit (which she designed, of course) when the Klingons rolled in to fuck their shit up and has been time-hopping ever since trying to stop Skynet from destroying the future without much success. She gets a moment to exposition dump with Michael before getting sucked back to the future (?) and she reveals that while the red angel mystery has been solved, she's NOT connected to the red energy bursts. However, the real threat is now Captain Leland, the Section 31 goon, who has been hacked by Skynet via some fancy nano-bots injected directly into his eyeballs and totally isn't becoming the first Borg.

How will our intrepid crew stop Leland and Skynet from killing the future and, more importantly, will anybody even care?

They have paintings and instruments and topiary and statuary. But not a single Miku figurine–why? Japanese people still exist.

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.

Fixing the end of DS9

I'm just finishing up my re-watch of DS9. Meaning of course I watched up to the penultimate episode of Season 6, then watched Siege of AR-558, It's Only a Paper Moon, and a couple filler episodes that I like. I think most of us here will agree that the plot-advancing episodes of Season 7, and the last part of Season 6, became very retarded very quickly. But, while what needs to go is pretty clear, what would you replace it with? Some starting points:

>S6: Waltz

Sisko and Dukat stranded together is an excellent concept for an episode, and the first part of it is set up well. Even the second part could mostly be kept as-is, if the end of the episode includes a bit of self-awareness. Rather than it being nothing more than the baste black guy heroically outsmarting the crazy hallucinating evil alt-right bigot, make it more clear that all Sisko really did is exploit and manipulate a mentally ill man for his own indulgence, going far beyond what was necessary for him to secure his own safety. Also, when Sisko discovers that the beacon is really offline, it would be far more in-character for Dukat to off-handedly apologize, briefly explain his reasoning, then continue on with the conversation, instead of chimping out.

>You really must forgive my duplicity in this matter, Captain. But, I think we should consider this a blessing in disguise. If you had known the transmitter was off-line, we wouldn't be having this enlightening conversation right now.

<Sisko visibly prepared to nog rage

>Have no fear, captain. As soon as we have concluded our little chat, I fully intend to re-activate your transmitter, and your friends can pick you up in good time.

After he's gotten what he's needed, or it's clear that Sisko isn't talking, Dukat will activate the transmitter while Sisko sleeps, then leaves in the shuttle.

>S6: Reckoning

Remove this episode and replace it with some filler episode from the cutting room floor. Kosst Amojan is stupid, the anime-tier battle of the energy beams was stupid, there's nothing redeemable to be found in the script. The Pah-wraiths shouldn't appear at all after The Assignment. In fact, let's do a quick ctrl+f of The Assignment's script and replace pah-wraiths with pah-wraith, so that viewers assume there was only one pah-wraith, and it got killed by O'Brien at the episodes' end. Obviously, this means every S7 episode that includes the wraiths has to get deleted and re-written.

>muh Prophets episodes

Sisko isn't half-Prophet, that's retarded. Neither is he secretly the creation of a 1950s nigger fiction author. Although even without the Pah-wraiths, the Prophets should have some, albeit less major, role in the finale, as they are a major part of the series. A better way to do it would be to make it more about tensions between the wormhole ayys and secular concerns, i.e. Starfleet. Perhaps Starfleet admiralty would demand that if Sisko wants to keep his posting on DS9, he needs to renounce the title of Emissary and any relationship to the Prophets. When this conflict comes to a head, Sisko will eventually choose to resign his commission, finally stop being uncomfortable about his role as Emissary, and retire to a house/restaurant that he builds on Bajor.

>Klingons, Gowron, Martok, Worf

Gowron shouldn't suddenly start making reckless attacks and being retarded, as there's no need for Martok to replace him as Chancellor. Here's what I propose instead: the Sons of Mogh episode never happened, and Kern never got his memory wiped. He's slowly been working his way back to relevance, and has become one of Gowron's most trusted advisors, despite having no House of his own. Kern has a deep-seated resentment for Worf because of his selfish actions in The Way of the Warrior, in which he put his own honor before that of his family. The two have some nice arguments with one another about honor, duty, and other Klingon things. Eventually, as the season comes to an end, Worf comes to Gowron asking for forgiveness, and asks for him to restore the House of Mogh. But, there's one condition: Worf will renounce any claim he has to the house of Mogh, and Kern will reign as its leader. Worf, who by this point has been chastised by his brother, will agree, because he does not feel that he is worthy of father's name anymore. He keeps his position in the House of Martok. Kern will gain some grudging respect for his ex-brother, but there's still no love lost between them.

>Dukat

I'm not sure about this one. Perhaps, after seeing what the Dominion are doing to his own people, Dukat is the one to lead the Cardassian resistance rather than Damar?

The "bio dampener" of the Hanson's makes no sense

I mean, it's pretty obvious the Borg got hit with the nerf bat in VOY, but Dark Frontier makes it almost too fucking hard for me to watch. I mean, the bio dampener of the Hansons which was also used by the Yoyager crew isn't a cloak, right? But, uhm, the Borg have bloody eyes?! In fact, they even have supposedly better eyesight through the cybernetic implants. Borg drones can hear as well (and the scanner of Janeway makes noise), or smell. In the finale of the episode, Janeway enters the "throne room" of the Borg Queen who immediately notices her, because, of course, she has eyes. I really wonder why they decided not to make the bio dampener a cloak, they made the same logical mistake with the Delta Flyer's "shield modulation" which supposedly hides them from their sensors, but isn't a cloak, but on the Borg Queen's viewscreen the shuttlecraft just vanishes, as if it was cloaked. Technological wise it also isn't such an ingenious technology, considering even contemporary military works on technology to shield soldiers from heat detection.

One possible solution would be the fact that the eyesight of a drone would function completely via their neural implants, like an artifical eye, with the biological eye being replaced, and that the optical implants can't process biological life as such if their life signs are dampened. If this would be true, this seems like a horrible flaw of the Borg (and there are quite a bit already). And even then, you'd assume that they can input a command to put the optical implant on stand-by and order the drones to use their "normal" eyesight again. I mean, in the episode where Seven of Nine got stranded with a few other drones on a planet, they start cooking food and other stuff as an emergency back-up routine that is activated when isolated.

Don't misunderstand me, it is still a good episode, because the looming dread in this two-parter, that is really well done, and it probably has the most horror movie like scene in all of Star Trek (Seven witnessing assimlation of a species as they scream and cry in pain in the background and she watches them being mutilated), which makes it one of the best Yoyager episodes, but this really puts me off it. I assume this is another case of inventing an "off-trigger" of a villain that the writers created to be too overpowered, but I always think of this as a bit of a deus ex machina. I mean, let me compare it to the original Terminator (1984). The T-800 is also a bit like the Borg, he is relentless, he can't be bargained with, he can't be reasoned with, he will not stop until you are dead. You can't fight him, you can't outrun him. Of course, Sarah and Kyle win at the end but only after they wear him down with everything at their disposal, Kyle dies, and even when they burn his entire flesh off, he still comes back, even if they blow his entire abdomen off with a grenade at point-blank range, he STILL keeps coming and almost kills Sarah until he is literally squished to pieces in a steel press. Of course, you can't go through a procedure like that in a episodical show everytime the Borg show up, but Species 8472 was an authentic solution, only a species from a parallel universe could be a believable "cryptonite" for the Borg, but the obvious weaknesses the Borg display afterwards (with Species 8472 sadly being discarded) are the main reason why people say that VOY ruined the Borg for them.

What would Jean Luc Picard do?

In this thread we post and discuss moral conundrums that we can encounter while exploring the galaxy.

>have nice asian waifu

>she comes back from a visit to a planet

>turns into a 12 yo loli

>still your waifu

>she demands you fulfill your marital obligation

Was it wrong to refuse giving her the warmth and companionship she needed?

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.

STD Season 2

>MAXIMUM BUMP TOLERANCE EXCEEDED, CAPTAIN!

STD Season One Recap:

Michael Burnham is the greatest starfleet officer in history. She knows literally everything and can solve any problem presented to her with consummate ease and no small amount of condescension. She was adopted as a child by Spock's parents because there were no other foster parents available out of trillions of Federation citizens but those of Star Trek's most iconic character (who never mentioned an adopted sister in 50 years of canon). The greatest starfleet officer in history commits a mutiny which ends up killing her captain and single-handedly plunges the Federation into war with Klingons (who are now bald xenophobes obsessed with racial purity). Instead of serving her lifetime prison term, Michael is recruited as a science specialist on the secretive USS Discovery, the most advanced ship in the fleet which boasts holographic systems that shouldn't exist for decades, and an experimental "spore drive" that can teleport the ship instantly to any point in the galaxy over a "mycelial network" of space mushrooms. They briefly use a giant tardigrade as their navigator until someone found out that the whole concept of tardigrades teleporting via space mushrooms was plagiarized from an indie video adventure game called motherfucking "Tardigrades." Good job CBS.

Among the crew members of the Discovery are Captain Lorca: a no-nonsense hard-ass with a shady past who plays fast and loose with regulations and might be a little too trigger-happy for a starfleet captain. The alien first officer is Saru, who can sense danger and death approaching, and is from a species comprised entirely of betas. Chief Engineer Stamets is in charge of the spore drive and becomes its navigator after the tardigrade is sued out of a job. The medical officer is Dr. Culber who is gay with Stamets and is currently deceased and/or a spore ghost inside the mycelial network. And then there's Tilly: a hyperactive, overweight, autistic ensign completely unsuited for service on starfleet's most advanced, experimental starship, but is nonetheless inexplicably part of the command track program. God save the poor vessel that sees Tilly as her captain. There's a bunch of other characters that make up the bridge crew, but they're so poorly developed that most viewers don't even know their names. There's also Tyler who is a Klingon double agent / love interest for Michael Burnham, but nobody cares.

Anyway, a bunch of stupid nonsense happens and eventually we find out that Captain Lorca is actually from the Mirror Universe (which absolutely nobody saw coming because the writing in this show is just so fucking clever) and needed the Discovery's spore drive to get back home. Mirror Universe antics ensue, but eventually Lorca is killed and Burnham "saves" the Mirror Universe version of Georgiou (her dead, mutinied-upon captain) who in this reality is the Emperor of the Terran Empire, a Hitler analogue, and an actual cannibal. When the ship makes it back to its own reality there is a convenient time jump wherein the Klingons are about to win the war, but Michael Burnham the greatest starfleet officer in history with aid from Space Hitler avert disaster at the last second. For her "heroics," not only is Burnham's punishment for MUTINY, MURDER, and WAR commuted, but she's reinstated at her full rank and joins the Discovery crew full time. As the ship flies off to pick up its new captain, they are intercepted by the USS Enterprise, Christopher Pike commanding, just in time to bilk CBS All Access subscribers into re-upping their subs based on nostalgia lenses alone.

STD Season Two status:

Captain Pike takes over the Discovery and we find out starfleet gave him an urgent mission to discover the source of seven mysterious red energy bursts that appeared all across the galaxy. For reasons that will most likely make no logical sense, these seven bursts along with a cosmic entity called the "red angel" have driven Spock to commit himself to the loony bin. The only person who can save him and unravel the mystery of the red angel is his estranged adopted sister that we've never heard of in 50 years of canon, the merry mutineer Michael Goddamn-Fucking Burnham. It's whispered that Michael did something to Spock in their childhood that traumatized him so irreparably that they haven't spoken to each other since, but the show won't just come the fuck out and say what it was, because the hacks that write this shit either don't know, or are second-guessing the likely faux-incest storyline that literally everyone could see coming.

In conclusion, fuck this show and anyone who says "Oh, it's not THAT bad" because, yes, it fucking is.

stre/k/ weapons discussions

Let's have a weapons discussion in trek. What phaser rifles would you like to have. Would you want a Fed model, or the more brutally simple spoonhead made direct energy rifle. 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.

silicone based organisms

I just fucking realised that the Borg going from a terrifying omnipotent inscrutable menace to bumbling stooges might not have been a convenient retcon, but rather part of their actual plan.

Forget about "The Borg" as in the Star Trek "race" and what that means to you. Think about what a real galaxy-spanning machine-mind might be like: how distantly beyond any little federation it would be as a result of assimilating, cross-referencing and extrapolating on every technology and philosophy it can find and using that to advance itself.

How fucking ludicrous it is that some humans could ever out-wit a patient, immortal collective like that.

We couldn't ever even assume that whatever surface it presents to us is its real self. As far as we know, every feature or characteristic we are presented with is merely a strategic choice designed to influence our long-term decisions.

What I'm getting at is that I think the Federation has already been assimilated, they (and by extension we) just don't realise it yet.

And they did this with Jeri Ryan's massive fucking bongo titties.

What we see of the Borg are basically dumb inept insects that are the DIAMETRIC OPPOSITE of the things the Federation values about themselves, and the reason they resist assimilation. But if our individuality and sense of self really is a strength, then wouldn't the collective want to incorporate that? But how would you assimilate that without destroying it?

Maybe by letting us think we're independent will still finding an interface that integrates us as an intact organ into a greater whole.

Maybe you'd go about that with a sophisticated bimbo trojan horse aimed directly at us, the audience (and by extension the crew) and some bullshit about a unimatrix, and LARPing as antagonists while all along safeguarding their (partially-borgified) ship and ultimately even ultimately giving them a highway to get home.

Romulan Thread

I was always curious about the Romulans in regards to their motives and beliefs. There is a lot of lore surrounding them but almost nothing is really known. They don't seem to be concerned with others posing a threat to them although the mention of Garak caused a nervous twitch from a Tal-Shiar Sub-Commander Just how powerful are the Romulans really?

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.

Second Animated Star Trek Series Confirmed for CBS All Access

> Alex Kurtzman Planning a New Star Trek Animated Series

> Development on any further Star Trek films appears to have stalled, but the franchise continues to prosper on CBS All Access. Apart from current titles, the network is planning to extend its reach beyond the live-action realm. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Alex Kurtzman revealed that another animated Star Trek series is in the works for the streaming service.

> “Our goal is to not only expand the definition of Star Trek and what has qualified as traditional Star Trek, but also to tell stories that are both self-contained in a very short period of time that also connect to the larger picture of what we’re doing, not only in Discovery but in the world building of Trek in general,” Kurtzman said. “And you get to tell these very intimate, emotional stories that are side stories to characters. So you get the benefit of the experience in and of itself but then when you watch Discovery you’ll see that these were all setting up things in the world of season two.”

> Kurtzman didn’t share any specifics about the new cartoon. But when it launches, it will be CBS All Access’ second animated venture after Mike McMahan’s (Rick and Morty) Star Trek: Lower Decks. That series offers a comedic take on the adventures of a Starfleet vessel’s support crew. “[Lower Decks] is totally different from anything we’re doing on any of these other shows and we decided to tell that story and make those people the heroes,” Kurtzman explained. He also indicated that additional animated shows are possible down the line. However, he insists that “each show has to have its own identity.”

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.

TNG Rewatch - Season 3

If fags haven't seen already it's a thread where a season of TNG is rewatched where a brief review is given of each episode and a small dump of reaction tier images and webms are made. Feel free to join in and shitpost. Also if you have any requests for scenes you want webm'd make them here.

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.

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 Alpha Quadrant Pussy Snorkeling Championship

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!

The show, which will be produced by CBS Eye Animation Productions, Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment, will follow the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least-important ships. CBS Eye Animation Productions is CBS Television Studios’ new animation arm.

>Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin of Secret Hideout and Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth and Katie Krentz of Roddenberry Entertainment will serve as executive producers alongside McMahan, who is best known for Rick and Morty and has written the upcoming Harry Mudd-centric installment of Star Trek: Short Treks. Aaron Baiers, who brought McMahan to the project, will serve as a co-executive producer.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

WESLEY'S GETTING FUCKED

http://archive.is/8NBnM

Everyone's favorite soyboy is getting eaten alive by his own.

TL;DR from /tg/:

>Wil Wheaton leaves twitter because they aren't mean enough to "fascists" like Alex Jones

>Joins some new wanna-be twitter called Mastodon

>Gets run off that by users and the people who run Mastodon a few weeks later after he causes a shitstorm by overreacting to a tranny pranking him

>turns out Wheaton's constant celebrity boot-licking caught up with him

>He used Randi Harper's ggautoblocker list back during GamerGate's height of activity

>Harper was one of Zoe Quin's personal buttbuddies and also a total psycho

>Harper got excommunicated when it was revealed that she was too much of a PR nightmare (and also vocally hated trannies)

>Harper made another blocklist that largely included a lot of trannies in the indie game clique that she'd argued with

>Wheaton subscribed to that blocklist also, thus "silencing" lots of trannies

>some time later, Chris Hardwick of The Nerdist is outed as another male feminist sex pest

>Wheaton has been tonguing Hardwick's asshole for years to try and get more famous so he wouldn't have to keep kissing Felicia Day's ass

>The SJW torch and pitchfork mob has been going after Hardwick ever since

>Wheaton has said nothing on the subject

>SJW Mob has decided that Wheaton is guilty by association for not using his platform as a D-list celebrity to call him out

>cut to this Mastodon shit

>Wheaton is not a transphobic rape apologist according to the mob he's been trying to leverage into the gaming community to make himself more famous

>he's now had to quit all social media because everyone is so mean to him

>he can't cry that it's GamerGate or the Alt-Right's fault

>even the lefty blogger/journo media is grilling him about all the times he was an obnoxious cunt on twitter

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").

Basicaly

>Son I'm only out there for you(Lie)

>We need to stick together (Lie)

>Money is the root of all evil (Lie)

>You are better of without this evil (Lie)

>Work for my family cooperative (I pay you nothing) I give you food etc.

>Because I love you (Lie)

>All other ferengi are evil and obey the evil commandments of the rules of acquisition (Lie)

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?).

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.

>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. Any other anons planning to watch everything again, or have done so recently? Should I bother re-watching anything besides TNG and DS9?

R: 47 / I: 6 / P: 13 [R] [G] [-]

I'm watching DS9 at the moment and it really pisses me off how close this show is to being a masterpiece. Every time I watch a couple of good episodes in succession I think "Okay NOW the show gets really good," but then I'm interrupted with a shitty Bajoran episode. 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

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?

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.

Doctor + Data teamup when? Also Chakotay should've dicked Janeway, and the Doctor and SoN a couple goddamn it.

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.

t. just watched one of the star wars movie with the cyborg bad guys

Undeveloped Star Trek Projects

http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Undeveloped_Star_Trek_projects

I think it's for the best most of these never got greenlighted. Here's an example of the weird acid trip insanity that was proposed:

>Star Trek III

>an undeveloped story that Gene Roddenberry proposed for a Star Trek film. It involved the USS Enterprise, time-traveling Klingons, and the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Borg or Dominion?

Would you rather be subjugated by the Dominion or be assimilated by the Borg?

Also, fuck First Contact.

Pushing The Race Card

What the fuck did the Breen have against Oakland, anyway? Even if we assume that demographics are completely different in teh fyooture (maybe that's where all the Starfleet shipyards are?) you can't ignore the obvious connotation for the real world that they were specifically targeting the nig city. For what purpose? If they wanted to piss of Sisko in particular, the writers sure did a good job making sure he DIDN'T bring it up.

I just can't accept this not being intentional. Avoid the actual Starfleet HQ, all the commercial districts and businesses in SF proper, but nuke the oaktown flat. Why?

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.

Rape Culture

Doesn't Trek treat the issue of sexual assault rather lightly? Like that time a trill let Crusher bang Riker without his consent, and then probably didn't even tell him afterward. I mean I know it's Riker but still.

Princess counselor Leia Troi

So, the legions of soyboys want princess Leia of the Reddit Wars franchise to be recast. Front runner atm is Maryl Streep (!). I think Marina Sirtis would be a better fit as she looks more like Leia. Better actor, too. I'm however not sure if I want this. Would you approve of this? Could we consider this as a win over sw?
