So as you may have heard, there are rumors about Tarantino directing the next Trek movie. He pitched the idea to Abrams and it was well recieved or something?

and now Patrick Stewart announced that if Tarantino directs it, he wants to be in it.

not trying to get my hopes up, but this could actually be pretty darn good. Theories? Hopes? Will this be in the Kelvin timeline? I am looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

It isn't particularly bloody...for a Tarantino film. It's a hugely bloody, violent, and just gross flick. If you dropped half that much violence into a Trek film, it would easily be the most violent thing in Trek ever ever.

Which, I don't have a problem with violence. I don't have a problem with Tarantino. But some things just don't go together. Would you hire Tarantino to direct a Lord of the Rings reboot? How about we resurrect Stanley Kubrick to direct Pitch Perfect 3? Let's get Michael Bay in on the Casablanca remake. Or hire Ridley Scott to do Furious 9.

Will you guys at least accept that in principle, there are directors with highly focused, highly specialized styles, that are incongruous with the established styles of long running media franchises? If you can accept that, why can't you accept the idea that some people find Tarantino and Trek's styles to also be incongruous? If you can't accept that, then I suggest you explain to us why the Alfred Hitchcock My Little Pony would be the best thing ever to happen to the MLP franchise.

Is this dude still in here resetting his router ever hour to make it look like people agree with him? I knew closing /pol/ would just make those sad fucks seep into the other boards and pollute them with contrarianism. Seriously, even when he has a good point he says something stupid to reinforce the broken clock cliché. If it truly rattles his jimmies then it's all the sadder.

Let the movie come, kids. The speculation part of this thread was fun. Arguing over Tarantino's merits is dumb. The suits want him, Patrick Stewart wants him, and he named two of the best episodes of the series as potential inspiration. We've all seen blood and death and swearing in Star Trek. We've had Trek that leaned more towards action, Trek that leaned towards horror, and comedy Trek. The looks of the uniforms, ships, and aliens have changed numerous times. If this is where you are drawing the line, with Tarantino developing and directing a Trek film, then you checked out a long time ago or were a lukewarm fan to begin with.

It'll either be good or it won't. Neither the world nor Star Trek will end. Stop being so dramatic about a damn director.

I've said this before, but Tarantino is heavy into genrefilm and remaking it. I don't think the issue is that he'll feel the need to lean into violence... I think that's just a product of what he's adapted before. I think the bigger danger is that he'll fall into the same trap as JJtrek, and just amp up all the elements.

But... I would pay money to see a Reservoir Dogs treatment of Picard being interrogated by the Kardasians.

With Tarantino getting one I wouldn't mind seeing Trek films just go full-on anthology style with filmmakers who are fans. Let Matt Stone and Trey Parker do an animated feature; early South Park is absolutely littered with ST references. Give Vic Mignogna a modest budget and let him and his guys do one that finally addresses the end of the original 5-year mission. Ask George Lucas if he'd want to stick it to Disney and adapt the Ralph McQuarrie designs. Ben Stiller, Tom Hanks, Tyler Perry... fuck it, why not?

It could bring in different demographics and give folks who'd normally scoff at a Trek movie a reason to finally check it out. Different casts, different looks, different takes on the old material, or all new stuff that's post-Nemesis. It'd be better than lingering in Kelvin and would deliver on the initial promise of Discovery. Paramount should capitalize on scoring Tarantino and find out if Guillermo del Toro or somebody like him is a secret Trekkie for the next one.

Yeah, I called Mirror Lorca in the first episode he was in. And people called the Tyler thing right away too. Even though I didn't have high expectations for this show, it's still disappointing how easy it was to spot from so far away.
And when they explained the whole eyes thing I kinda rolled my eyes. How does that make any sense?
In the mirror universe are humans nocturnal or some shit??

I've known for a while that this whole arc is gonna lead to Burnham becoming the hero by defeating Lorca and taking command of the ship. If that's the case, then this is a really fucked up version of Starfleet where Burnham can be pardoned by a maniac and go on to captain a ship. I really hope this isn't the case but I don't see where else they'll take it.

So Kelpiens.

So apparently we know they're rare in the Federation universe. In the Empire universe (sexyverse) they seem more common, probably because they're being bred for food. I hope season 1 ends with them shuttling a couple thousand Kelpiens back to the Federation universe. Only because...

Kelpiens are a prey animal. Which probably means they breed like rabbits. I hope season 2 is basically "The Trouble with Kelpiens" where the Federation is completely overrun with fear ganglia.

Also I think it's hilarious that Michael ate a kelpien. Like 10 minutes later she's admitting that she's federation anyways. She feigned disgust, but you can't convince me that she wasn't just curious and put off her reveal for a few minutes so that she could try it.

The DNA thing was necessary because it made actual exact copies of the people, literally taking their real genetic coding that makes them who they are and turned into digital consciousnesses. That would not happen without genes.

I too had a problem with this.

This is what we decided: it was explained in a deleted scene

Here are some ways you could explain it

<spoiler> 1. they all play infinity, so it is gathering personality information then
2. their personalities and knowledge are based on one basic framework, for example, his own, and then huge chunks of information and memory are swapped out using freely available information from social media, creating a sense of their being many distinct individuals, especially when added to the genetic differences that can affect temperament
3. the wizard did it

Okay so if all you've seen is DIS and Orville then HALT HAMMERZEIT

I mean watch TNG. First couple of seasons are hit and miss but bear with it, during season 2 you'll see some episodes which show you what it's capable of.

Once you've done that you've got two directions to go in. DS9 is darker and edgier but is about ideals being tested not broken and ignored. It examines the trek premise and throws in continuity and character development. The other way is to the original series. It's janky due to the art of TV still being in it's early stages and other artifacts of its time but a lot of the episodes reward your patience immensely. There are some episodes which just fucking pound you in every feeling (balance of terror for example) and some which just make you "wut" in the most satisfying way. I'd probably say do TOS second and DS9 3rd. DS9 will feel slick and modern compared to TNG but compared to TOS it will make it more of a treat. It's another slightly slow to start series but it starts about where TNG was in season 2 rather than having a season 1.

After that VOY and ENT are a bit of a let down. VOY has it's moments. ENT starts weak and was just hitting its stride when it was shitcanned. There's a complicated story in the studio but season 4 at least is great. It's this which is really the only reason we have to hope that DIS will come good. Even ENT was good shit by season 4.

Or you can just sit in the trektube and watch everything for a few weeks until you've seen it all.

>Comparisons have been drawn between Seth MacFarlane's The Orville and Star Trek: Discovery, but MacFarlane believes that his show fills the "void" left behind by classic Star Trek. I kind of miss the forward-thinking, aspirational, optimistic place in science fiction that Star Trek used to occupy," "I think there's some space for the aspirational blueprint of what we could do if we get our shit together, and that's something that's been missing for me for a while."And again, it's something that meant a lot to me when I was a kid, that Star Trek did, and this is sort of an attempt to kind of fill that void in the genre."

>"I think [discovery has] chosen to go in a different direction which has worked very well for them in recent years, but what has happened is that it's left open a space that has been relatively unoccupied for a while in the genre. "So for me, it's a space that's kind of waiting to be filled in this day and age when we're getting a lot of dystopian science fiction, a lot of which is great and very entertaining, but it can't all be The Hunger Games." MacFarlane added: "It can't all be the nightmare scenario.

http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/feature/a847230/the-orville-season-2-release-date-cast-trailer-episodes/

>"To correct a bit of misreporting: No, there won't be an Orville/Family Guy crossover, and yes, The Orville season 2 will arrive later this year,"

>Due to scheduling issues, the first season of the show was cut short by one episode to 12, but that 'lost' episode is now expected to air with the second season, with MacFarlane also saying that he expects to do "at least" 14 episodes. "I'd rather do fewer episodes and have them be better content-wise than do 22 and have them be filler," he explained at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

>As for what we can expect from season two's missions for the USS Orville crew, MacFarlane wants to include more science-fiction elements, citing the season one episode 'Into the Fold' – which saw Dr Claire Finn and Isaac trapped on a planet alone – as an example that the show's universe can succeed with more sci-fi.

>"What we found was that we can lean a little more heavier into the science fiction and not have to worry so much about knocking out a joke every page. The show is an hour and really can, and wants to, service its storytelling in a way that makes it a priority. The jokes come as they come, the comedy comes as it comes."

Bullshit, while the Dominion war was a continuous theme that unified the series, it used that premise to explore themes that the other shows were afraid to touch on too often or at all in a star trek way. The two parter where Sisko comes back to Earth to help deal with possible dominion infiltration was a good exploration of the balance between privacy and security. The stuff with section 31 was a similar moral conflict, security vs morality. There were individual episodes that did classicy star trek stuff too. The Visitor, obviously, was an inner light style episodes. The episode where Sisko and O'Brien get stranded on that planet with the techno-phobic cult leader and explores the idea of loyalty to the uniform vs acceptance of what could have become the new normal. There was plenty of Cheesy trek stuff too, like with the episode where the runabout flies through the that one anomaly and becomes shrunk and they explore the impact that has on their ability to interact with their environment. That's just off the top of my head, if we went through memory alpha I know we could find an even greater variety of both cheese and not cheese good Trek-theme episodes, both directly related to the war and not.

DS9 was Trek, it's just that a lot of people have a very limited definition of what Trek Can be. It's a couple of things, but mostly it's people using their wits and technical know how to overcome the odds against a seemingly superior foe and attempt to maintain their idealism along the way, that's Star Trek. And you can do that just as effectively against the concept of war as against a literal god-alien who captures the ship for a single episode.

And head of security? are you smoking tardigrade dust???

It was telegraphed ambiguously.
What is also ambiguous is whether this was a blunder or good writing.

When I can call events in Black Mirror I get the distinct impression that Charlie Brooker is feeding it to me intentionally and that it's actually just simple but good narrative weaving.
Then it gets taken somewhere else, and while events were foreshadowed you never called how impactful it was going to be.

That's good writing. Not trying to outsmart the audience or trick them. Except into feeling sadder than they expected.

Discovery? Who knows. Terrible writing elevated by good execution? Excellent writing damaged by execution? I can't fuckin' tell.

More like Eddington 0.1. DS9 eased us into Eddington and the betrayal was a surprise. Eddington was no one special until he became someone special. STD dropped this twit into the middle of the inner circle because the plot needed it, not because he actually belonged there and was a natural fit. We never wondered why Eddington was positioned where he was. With Twit we questioned it from the start just like we question most of the show - the characters are making incoherent decisions to serve the plot.

I'm not watching the second half of the season. The first half has already shown me just what to expect. STD is like that one guy in a circle of friends where people try to assure that "he's not that bad" and "he's an acquired taste" which is just code for "after a while it bothers you less when he shits in your mouth in front of everybody and laughs at you." Fuck off, Discovery. You're a leech and you don't belong here.

The first episode of the second half of the season has probably been the best of the season. It's not great, It's not really even good. But I'll keep watching to see if it makes a turn.
But even if the rest of the season is good, it still won't redeem the horrible start to the show though.

Those lunatics who are building a to-scale 1701-D Enterprise using the Unreal 4 engine have posted an update video. It looks fucking amazeballs. The shuttlecraft are flyable and that includes a runabout. And they optimized a bunch of graphics shit. Check it out.

How resource intensive this would be for dozens of NPCs is a different matter but it's obviously not that far away.

The video is hilarious though. The generational tests and the simulated Takeshi's castle bridge ball with the fat dude beat the bird being defeated by jupiter though.

ARE YOU TALKING SHIT ABOUT MR. MOTT?!

He's literally the best barber in starfleet, being a Bolian he has always lusted for what he can never have: real hair. He is a consummate artist, a master of his craft. He put on a lot of weight since the early seasons though..

Any of you guys heard about this?
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/58936338/space-command-redemption/description

Crowdfunded sci fi show that is to include
>Robert Picardo
>Doug Jones
>Mira Furlan (B5)
>Bruce Boxleitner (B5)
>Bill Mumy (B5)
>Michael Harney (OITNB)
And quite a few more interesting cast members.
Space Command is the story of Captain Jack Kemmer and his stalwart crew aboard a starship vessel called The Paladin. In the first installment, Space Command: Redemption, Captain Kemmer rescues ex-archeologist Vonn O'Dara high above Mars, setting into motion a revolution that changes galactic history.

Sorry, not trying to shill super hard, I just stumbled across this and thought this could be pretty cool, and figured some of y'all might also.

Recently there's a short film called The Candidate on youtube that he was in (search "dust the candidate"). I really enjoy him in season 5 of stargate Atlantis. Also he was really dope in an old episode of Masters of Horror called "homecoming".

The way Star Trek Continues kept the spirit of 60's Star Trek alive this Marc Zicree guy really endeavors to keep that 90's TV show spirit alive. I might hate this.

But I'm really interested to know where that crowd of creators would take things without censorship or network meddling.

Not even 90's really, I should say. Just like, generally retro. It looks like its drawing all sorts of aesthetics from the 70's 80's and 90's.

I'll check it out. Sadly, if it has been released in the US, UK, IRE, Aus, or NZ since, idk, the late 70's to early 80's I've pretty much seen it all as far as sci-fi and pseudo-sci-fi goes. I work a lot, generally about 65-70 hours a week every week with a half day off thrown in here and there and I work odd hours so I am mostly home late at night without much else to do and have watched pretty much everything out there at the moment to the point where I've got what few new shows pass for sci-fi these days to watch as they air and then its just rewatching shows I've seen multiple times.

Just recently finished rewatches of Trek, Bab5, Space A&B, Farscape, Stargate, Andromeda, and Sliders. I think I'm going for a Space Precinct rewatch next.

Yeah, I've seen the show, movie, and the fan edit(which is pretty good) pretty much anything that has came out in the US, UK, NZ, or Aus since the 90's I've seen and most everything between the mid-late 70's to early 80's as well so I'm always on the lookout for something new. When you work 70 hours a week 6 1/2-7 days a week and are only off is the wee hours there isn't much else to do but watch TV and I've always been a huge sci-fi fan. I tend to draw the line at the original V/TOS era because earlier than that and its just too dated for me for the most part though there are a few exceptions.

Currently trying to get hold of and watch all of the trek fan stuff but its proving to be difficult to locate all of them now.
