How many here remember this crystal resting on Picard's desk in the ready room? He plays with it like a pen at times, and supposedly it shows up in 78 episodes, starting from S2 of TNG.

The mandela effect dudes are throwing a party over this. I can't say I remember it either, but it's such a minor element that I might have just never noticed it on a SD screen. Still, I've spent hundreds of hours looking at that ready room and to notice such a new detail now is bewildering.

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.

And FUCK YOU, Pale Moonlight was a masterpiece. Just the look on Sisko's face when he had to accept that all his machinations and plans and schemes and layers of keikaku were outdone by a mere tailor who knew which back to stick a knife into.

The thing is it was heavily implied that Bajor was on the brink of all out war before the Cardassians came. Factions were fighting for control, there was no attempts to tap into their resources efficiently, Bajor was headed for chaos. If the Cardassians hadn't given them a "common enemy" they would likely have destroyed themselves. Even in the first few seasons of DS9 you hear about all the infighting going on and Bajor came close several times to tearing itself apart.

They don't need to. A Cardassian child who has misbehaved in any way or even just failed to live up to the expectations of their parents or teachers will approach their parents, grandparents, and great grandparents. Once there the child will inform their elders of what their failure was, explain the punishment they have already given themselves and ask if that is sufficient to earn the forgiveness of their family.

Maybe make it so that he never needed it in the first place, that he just had to search inside himself or some shit. The part where he was a madman digging through sand leaving his old man behind to nearly die of heatstroke to fuel his delusions was okay; the part where he was proven justified was not.

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?

There actually is a instance of millions of manned/AI drones being used in Star Trek Beyond. While the ultimate foil to the bad guy's ramming droneships was literally rock music the idea behind was simple.

For the millions of drones to actually fly in a fleet without bumping into eachother they needed a network of communication between the ships. Signals being sent and received by the on-board AI by the thousands, constantly between each ship and the ones close to it.

There is no way to protect these signals from enemy or quantum interferences, which aren't hard to create by any ship, even without rock music.

In other words, jamming is cheaper than

It doesn't matter what the insurance companies want or what logic dictates; it's the consumer who doesn't want anything to do with automated cars. It will never happen in the USA because muh individual freedums, but I can easily see it becoming commonplace in big European cities simply due to population density, within the next 20 or 30 years.

>snow filled weather conditions

Humans can't drive worth shit in snowy conditions either. The point was never to create a flawless system that never makes mistakes and accidentally kills people; the point is to make a system that is better than a human driver, even by a small percent — then it is worth it, and even the shitty driverless cars we have now are already measurably safer than humans.

>The Furious 12: We Wuz Spacemans and Sheet

I can accept that description, nevertheless the weakness of mass AI/manned drones to interfering signals (enemy or other kind) is nevertheless something to consider.

The Russian military probably has several gagdets that can fuck with american drones making them all but useless for a fraction of the cost.

>It doesn't matter what the insurance companies want

Heh, if only you knew. Did you miss this part?

< automated cars and the system it brings about

Read between the lines. New infrastructure contracts, and possibly furthering a dystopian situation where ownership and control will be attempted to further be replaced with "convenient and ready access without the hassle of ownership goyi- I mean fellow countrymen"

>it's the consumer who doesn't want anything to do with automated cars.

Have you ever tested your hypothesis? Because I've seen the possible future, and even the consumers (that yes, I actually talked to) who don't want anything to do with it, are either enticed by the tech, and or enticed and forced by the possibility of lower insurance rates. Besides, consumer space will likely be the last one to get the system despite the mainstream attention. Fleet vehicles is where the big players are really aiming at for a while now. Once that reaches a critical mass, then it's the regular consumer space in yes, dense urban areas and definitely freeway usage.

>It will never happen in the USA because muh individual freedums, but I can easily see it becoming commonplace in big European cities simply due to population density, within the next 20 or 30 years.

Buddy, pal, amigo. Everything I said about the subject does not equal = I endorse all of it's implications. But I'll tell you this. If you think it's only going to be in eurabia. You're in for a rude awakening. I already heard many of the big players repeat your exact words of "the next 20 or 30 years", and they're not aiming exclusively at the the EU urban zones.

>The point was never to create a flawless system that never makes mistakes and accidentally kills people

Uh ok? Don't remember myself mentioning that 100% success rate is what they're after or even possible, I do remember mentioning something about an acceptably functional rate.

>and even the shitty driverless cars we have now are already measurably safer than humans.

Well except this small detail, I do agree that the driverless cars we have now at this time of writing, are still shitty. :^)

Slightly more serious, whether they're measurably safer than humans is highly debateable and depends on the area you're talking about. A densely populated urban center with a bunch of new rapefugees who drives a car the same way they beat their camels or hilux technicals where they came from because they never saw snow? Well the odds might be even on that one as to which ones are are the shittier drivers.

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 F-16 predates the F/A-18 by a good while. The light fighter competition was YF-16 vs. YF-17, which the YF-16 won to be developed into the F-16. The YF-17 impressed enough people that they didn't let the design die, they kept moving forward and making changes and improvements and developed it into the F-18.

for much of starfleet's history none of their ships were dedicated warships, as the whole concept of a combat vessel runs against the core values of starfleet; exploration, diplomacy, scientific discovery. that said, every single starfleet vessel was capable of fighting, but only as a secondary consideration as a matter of necessity. it wasn't until the defiant class that you had a ship that could only do combat roles.

Star Trek is the future we want, The Expanse is the future we deserve.



If two-thousand belters die to bring water to mars, I am only interested in the purity of the water.


With what happens after Venus, you could make a case for The Expanse being a prequel to the Playstation game Colony Wars - a small number of colony systems (colonised by Belters) rebel against the Empire (Earth / Mars reunited), which is taking all their resources to prop up the population in a depleted solar system. The Canon ending being a terrifying twist which you could see happening in a real war (though being good at the game gets you one of the two nice endings instead)


I think they're a good example of SJW's managing to keep their politics (mostly) out of their work. Or at least being able to write from the other side's perspective. No doubt there's some leftist board going "lol how could right-wingers like this, it's obvious the Martians are the bad guys". See also: Watchmen… and I had quite the soft spot for the bad guys in V for Vendetta, too. The shitty movie ironically made the society they have built look even nicer. Even the prostitutes live in comfortable apartments with huge TV's.


KEK I actually once thought Belter Creole was called Lang Belta… actually that's another mixed language created by human colonists in the Asteroid Belt from a totally different sci-fi series from the 50's.

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.

Apparently in most battles in edo-period Japan (a time when the other civilised countries all had muskets / rifles, but Japan was isolated on purpose and the few firearms they had were locked away by lords), the samurai used spears / pikes or bows. Even when they didn't have firearms the katana and wakazishi (or whatever the short one is called) were ceremonial / dueling weapons.

The only thing that makes sense is to make TOS + first 6 movies the primary canon and everything else be treated as an AU canon. Possibly several AU's.

It could be simpler to define every individual show (and its associated movies) as its own universe.

It would be simpler, but there's a lot of crossover between TNG, DS9, and VOY as they took place at the same time and sometimes swapped characters or events. And the Mirror Universe supposedly bridges all of them.

True, but there's enough contradictions between those three shows that treating the crossovers as special cases would be easier than the other way around.
