If Star Trek is in the future, why doesn't it have anime in it? They still have books, movies, music from Earth, and holographic entertainment. They have paintings and instruments and topiary and statuary. But not a single Miku figurine–why? Japanese people still exist. Was it just stamped out as part of the process of global "Federalization"?

Snobbish elitism. The idea is that by the 24th century Humans are so evolved that they only recognize and partake in the greatest most noblest of their arts and music while anything that might currently be considered puerile pop culture trash has been long abandoned. I mean, look how much people bitched about a fucking Beastie Boys song being used in Beyond and there the whole point was they were limited to just the music collection of some rando from a hundred years ago. Maybe they'd have preferred if the crew ended up having to transmit a recording of a fucking water polo game, because lord knows that's a much more enduring and relatable character trait for a space ship captain than liking rock music.

Basically it's just short sighted because they assume that nothing made today might end up being labeled a classic a hundred years later and ignore the basic fact that many past things like Shakespeare was considered pure garbage at the time by his contemporaries.

Though there's also the licensing issues I suppose as well.

Consider the people we see in the shows. They're almost universally the well employed elite or settlers with very little chance for relaxation or goofing off. I'd imagine there's some kind of (presumably holographic) future anime equivalent being enjoyed by the shut in neets of the future.

Isn't part of the point of the anime art style that it's stylized to be simpler, making it comparatively inexpensive to draw repeatedly? Why bother with that when:

1) Glorious Space Communism has rendered questions of expense meaningless (except when it doesnt)

2) You can get the computer to design, render, and grant a personality to your ideal waifu with just a few spoken sentences, no skill required?

I mean, there are cringey over-the-top wish-fulfillment holodeck programs: Barclay lives in them.

That's partially true for modern animu, but up until the 90s or so Chinese cartoons were known for having hyper-detailed line art and shading.

To clarify, the really high-detail stuff was only common during the 80s, as this corresponded to Japan's economic boom. They could do high quality animation because they simply had loads of capital to throw at it.

In the 90s anime started to simplify its general look and became more heavily reliant on still-frames, and this was a direct result of Japan's economic stagnation and recession at the time.

>why doesn't it have anime in it

Because anime didn't become a worldwide cultural phenomenon until the 90's and later, and during that time period Trek-Earth was dealing with some other shit.

A better question is: how come there isn't an actual anime version of Star Trek yet?

>A better question is: how come there isn't an actual anime version of Star Trek yet?

There was oddly enough attempts in the early 2000's to get the ball rolling but let's just say what was pitched made STD look like fairly competent fan fiction.

If there was ever a Trek anime it cannot focus on the Federation at all. It would suit Klingons very well where there would be a few episodes focusing on famous battles in Klingon history with over the top gore and violence, narrated by an old Klingon Dahar Master singing in a pub.

A basic Star Trek-style ship and crew "boldly going" in a semi-episodic way (single-episode adventures plus a season-wide story arc) would probably work fine. If I had to guess why it hasn't been done, I'd say there just isn't a good manga or light novel in the genre to use as source material.

It would still be a waste of potential. The biggest advantage of using an anime style Star Trek is to show things they could never show easily in a live action show.

It might be interesting to see a Japanese ship. I know all Federation ships are supposed to be international, but the majority of crewmen we see usually tend to be American, so I'm guessing they do roughly group people according to nationality.

In a more "realistic" and fully developed version of Star Trek's future, entertainment would include so much more than classical music, poetry, and holo-LARPing as an early 20th century gumshoe. This is a problem that is largely Roddenberry's fault, because he was such an autistic idealist that he believed humanity would give up everything uncultured or improper (like >>29298 says) because the idealistic, virtuous for the sake of virtue mentality would have overtaken humanity and most other space faring civilizations. Only that's not the case and they show frequently in many episodes that humanity is not beyond these hobbies.

The other part of the problem is something that has plagued sci-fi and futurist writing for as long as it has existed. Licensing issues aside, a lot of these writers just simply are not as well acquainted with modern culture as they think they are. They barely understand the trends and developments in modern science and technology, but go ahead with making wild predictions about how society will change. And whenever they do try to approach the subject of video games or even just cartoons, they always make asses of themselves by showing that they have no idea how they work or what people like about them.

However, from a writing standpoint, I'd argue that the problem here isn't that Trek writers don't mention anime or vidya or any uncivilized hobby, it's that they go out of their way to painstakingly explain and remove any uncertainty that these things don't exist and aren't enjoyed in the future. They would have been fine if they just left that blank. No one on the Enterprise talks about anime because that's not really relevant to the story and doesn't fit with the overall themes of the show. It's not mentioned because it doesn't need to be. It could still exist in the setting.. but it kind of just doesn't, because Roddenberry's vision for the future is no TV, no games, no activities that aren't noble self-improvement and quantum mathematics… and in that way, it's just another weird wrinkle in the Trek universe that makes it a little more dystopian and awful than intended.

I suppose you could also use the weak excuse I've seen used for why every song played on a radio in the Fallout games is from the 60's or earlier when. Namely, that actual vinyl records and paper books were the only formats that survived the various nuclear wars and whole generations worth of pop culture and entertainment were erased by emp effects.

The excuse doesn't work for Fallout since they have a billion holotapes everywhere that clearly survived the war no problem, but you could maybe make it work for Star Trek. Except they also seem to have insanely detailed information on historical figures and culture that would have been obliterated during WWIII with all the anime and rock music…

You could assume that Starfleet is nothing like the average Federation citizen. We know from The Doctor's publishing efforts, Jake Sisko's writing, and holosuite programs like Vulcan Love Slave that there's quite a few people consuming contemporary entertainment. Most likely, they just load all the autistes who read exclusively Shakespeare onto a starship and let them sperg out on the ayys instead of bothering everyone back home.

Voyager actually may have handled the holodeck more realistically than any other ST series. It wasn't always just historical LARPing, and classic works of fiction. There was Captain Proton, the kid's holodeck entertainment, that Irish pub Janeway liked, the Doctor's golf course, and I think a skydiving program at one point.

The first few Fallout games only used old music in the opening cinematics, if I recall correctly. In game, there was no radio playing only 40s music. In Fallout 3, you've got Three Dog's radio station, but there's never an excuse given, like "These were the only records we could find" or whatever. They just continued the trend for no reason through every other game, even though there was a century and a half of history between the 40s and when the bombs dropped.

For a writer, you'd think the chance to reference 400 years of pop culture and entertainment would be really fun for them. They get to make up whatever they want and make their characters say all kinds of wacky shit. It's a free pass and instead of using it, they made the awkward decision to have their characters obsessively focus on things that had little to no popularity of widespread attention in their own time. How fucking boring do you have to be to imagine that in the future all people would ignore anything else made with the latest and greatest technology strictly so they could focus on novel that were written nearly a thousand years in the past. It would be like if all we cared about right now was ancient egyptian theater and writing.

32fde2  No.30296


To be fair, that 40s music helped set the atmosphere for Fallout. All of the sci-fi and future shit in those games is modeled on the future as it was portrayed in mid-20th century pulp magazines despite the games being made long after that, and it gives them a certain aesthetic. Period music helps amplify that aesthetic. Star Trek doesn't really have this excuse though, it was part public domain being cheap and part Roddenberry's autism regarding plebeian contemporary entertainment. I'm guessing the latter is more responsible, since once you get past TNG you start seeing a lot more non-classics entertainment being shown. I'm still pissed MGM had a bitchfit about the Our Man Bashir episodes, adn kept the writers from producing any more.

324b51  No.30297


Like many aspects of the 3D Fallouts, it was done best in New Vegas. Plus some of New Vegas's music was related to older folk songs. Fallout 4 of course did a terrible job, and it felt like half the playlist (much of which copied from a popular mod, at least the parts not lazily duplicated from 3) was just hamfisted DUDE NUKES LMAO, compared to NV in which it all felt 100% at home despite having nothing to do with the apocalypse.

It's obviously a budget and effort thing. They'd have to record a lot of new music. It'd be really cool if they did that though.

6b071e  No.30299


It fits just fine, it was just a poorly developed idea that they fumbled, much like Trek did. Had they made more than a few attempts to create some original contemporary music for their era, the results would have probably been pretty silly, but far more memorable and more likely to resonate with audiences better than classical music and poetry.


All it takes is a couple lines of dialog to rationalize it.

>The building we took over to use all this broadcasting equipment used to be an oldies station

or even just

>the only machine we could get working couldn't play the format all the new music was put on, so we're stuck with this ancient stuff

That would fit with Bethesda's general laziness, as they are too fucking incompetent to actually compose and record original music that fit the aesthetic and wasn't just generic ambient orchestral droning.

342985  No.30302

In both franchises it really wouldn't be much of budget hit to hire people to record new music to fill in the gap. You could hire some crazy experimental electronica guy to slap together something no one has ever heard before if you wanted to do a "the crew throws an after hours dance party" scene for less than the cost of licensing some shitty modern rave shit. And you could find plenty of unemployed big band type people who could produce some retro sounding jazz and swing music that maybe actually expands the lore of the game by including references and themes that actual 40's music couldn't possibly have. Likewise have an episode where someone is playing an holodeck program based on a 2029 political satire written during the prelude to the eugenics war that gives us more background into the earth's history at that time.

>I mean, look how much people bitched about a fucking Beastie Boys song being used in Beyond and there the whole point was they were limited to just the music collection of some rando from a hundred years ago. Maybe they'd have preferred if the crew ended up having to transmit a recording of a fucking water polo game, because lord knows that's a much more enduring and relatable character trait for a space ship captain than liking rock music.

Amen. This actually ties back to the whole Shakespeare-in-Star-Trek thing. In his own day, Shakespeare's work was considered (in modern terms) pop-culture melodramatic schlock. What made his schlock stand out above other schlock is that he had, as fans, two successive powerful monarchs. The aristocracy of Elizabethan and Jacobian England had to at least pretend to like Shakespeare's work (and publicly use many many many of the made-up words he coined) in order to do the usual royal court politicking.

This is also why I actually liked Picard being a big fan of both Shakespeare and of trashy pulp detective stories. They're the exact same class of entertainment of their respective days. Maybe 24th century universities have entire literary departments dedicated to pulp detective novels, just like how real-life 21st century universities have departments of Shakespearean studies.

361628  No.30487


Interesting point about Shakespeare you make cause that is exactly what Shakespeare was about. Entertainment. His stories are quite formulaic but in a good way that they can be adapted for any setting which is why if you put it to a current timeline the stories still work. He'd probably be pissed to see how pretentious it has gotten over the years.

>Shakespeare was considered melodramatic shlock

Well I don't have the knowledge of contemporary critics' views, I suspect you might be overstating it a little bit. Sure maybe it wasn't considered the pinnacle of high art according to the intelligentsia, but how much "high art" competition could he really have had? Royalty and the nobility are the beginning and the end of the "market" so to speak for playwrights back then (excepting the pittance that might be made at the door of a local theatre from laymen, but even that was at the mercy of the King's willingness to allow it), so if they had a taste for Shakespearian style plays, how could a large body of the intelligentsia's 'better' works ever be produced?

>Shakespeare is the same class of entertainment as crappy pulp novels

I don't like this line of reasoning because although it may seem technically correct, it's not accounting for how the base artistic taste of society has been harshly lowered. Take for example music; not too long ago "middle brow" music would have been Johnny Cash dressed casually, strumming an acoustic and singing about his girlfriends or drinking, but now middle brow would be a shirtless groid rapping about "bix nood muh dick" and murdering his rivals while overfed mulattas gyrate their bare ass. It's not that these things have equal artistic merit, it's that society has just become more degenerated and low class. I fully expect that people will still be talking about Shakespeare in two-hundred years (if perhaps not Cash), but pulp novels are already seen as silly and dated today (much as the popularity of Jamarkus Shaquan L'Oreal's anti-music is lucky to remain popular for more than a few months to a year).

4e0041  No.30634


Contemporary plays weren't taken seriously as a medium in his lifetime, but Shakespeare was top of that field, and his reputation rose after his death, not just among the aristocracy but among other writers. Also, derp: Shakespeare was also a poet, and poetry actually was taken seriously. This whole discussion sounds sounds like an aside from Professor Judenstein's Introduction to African Literature course.

>Johnny Cash

I like Johnny Cash, honest, but music's been in dire straights since recording artists supplanted composers. Middle-brow music used to be light opera… and apparently they still have Gilbert and Sullivan in the future, so there you go, Feds aren't that snobbish after all.

In the future anime is illegal and has only a handful of cult followers who are hunted by killbots and bounty hunters. They live their lifes in hiding, spending most of their time digging through the ruins of the lower levels of Tokyo to find fragments of mangas or a BD. We live in a golden age today. Just like when heroin or cocaine was legal. But these times will come to an end. They always do.
