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 QueePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

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.

This evolved from a response to a thread that I decided to make its own thread because of how extensive it is.

Why the federation is absolute shit and terrible in all possible ways.

Long live the glory of the Terran Empire.


> fix the Federation

Impossible the federation is systemically fucked and only worked because of plot armor.

Replace it with the Terran Empire, however its no longer the federation.


>Kick out all the xeno trash.


I like the way you are thinking.


1) See


2) Ignoring ST writer ideology making the federation work and trying to portray the Terran Empire as bad (despite the fact that the main federation has more insane juntas then the mirror universe; hell Mirror-Archer was a die hard patriot who only wanted to help the empire and serve it, he got a little greedy by not giving the command of the magic future ship to the idiot who was wrong and tortured him.Its not his fault that his personal whore was a corrupted power hungry bitch and poisoned him and took over the future super ship) as possible we move to the next point:

Thing is, Starfleet and all the major institutions are human dominated. Federation is basically an empire that destroys the sovereignty of other races but justifies it by calling it "democracy" and "multiculturalism".

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.

>It's not as though there's some massive gulf between "Movie Star " and "TV Star" anymore though.

It's true that if someone makes it big with say a popular tv series, they can be just as well known as a "movie star", maybe more nowadays. But there is still that hierarchy that most of these fucks wants to be in movies. For them that's when they know they truly "made it".

>Hell Quinto used to be on TV, so I can't imagine a fifteen minute guest appearance could hurt them that much.

Might be the other way around, those who got into a movie gig may smell the stench and don't want the stink on them. Or they don't want to be seen "slumming it" back to tv.

There shouldn't be food replicators on STD unless they've raped the lore of that as well.

7b5db5  No.25989


I think they had chemical based "food 3d printers" that could produce simple meals and raw ingredients that could be prepared into more elaborate food products even in the TOS. All replicators added were ships only needing energy to produce the food (and the ability to make much more complicated meals), instead of storing large amounts of base materials for the food dispensers to work with.

Granted, I think STD did show some sort of fucking energy to matter replication in the first season

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.

Fuck, nobody watches TV anymore. Viewer counts have been steadily declining since the early 90s, and the rise of social media in the past ten years has only accelerated that. It used to be that most people would spend at least a couple of hours each evening watching TV, now they're just as likely to spend that time on facebook or twitter. I don't even use social media and I haven't watched TV in the better part of a decade.

I guess my point is that kids today aren't going to be watching Discovery. When they think back on it in the future they'll probably just lump it together with the rest of trek as "one of those TV things that old people watch".

Oh look its a ancap, point and laugh.

>while economic theory shows

Want to show this theory? How about you look at some real data on unemployment and correlate it with automation.

Oh wait ancaps ignore real data.

How about you think about it for 3 minutes and realize the problem?


Is it once more the classical ancap comedy show where :

1) assume sane communist goals (you must and you are doing this).

2) See that factually and logically capitalism creates insane problems and is impossible for humans with technological progress.

3) Say there is something wrong with this.

4) go completely insane and actually start arguing like you and we are living in a Technate !!!!!!!1111111ONEONEONEONE


Or any other form of super socialism or communism!

5) Actually think capitalism functions like a Technate!

6) Throw away Neoclassical slogans and argue for deregulation.
