Stumbled across Samaritan Snare and realized we did not have a BWW thread as of late.

>We need things that make us go

Always loved the Pakleds, first for the obvious nod in the name (pack-led) and that they are basically space autists

Anyway, bump whenever you are watching star trek or see it on somewhere.

They'll set out trying to unfuck it, end up making things worse for another season or two, and then, in a hasty finale, reveal that the whole show was a Bendii Syndrome hallucination of Sarek's, who secretly regrets never having a daughter.

I hope STD pulls it together, actually. It would follow a proud tradition of Trek shows tripping over their own dick before settling in and getting good. Besides, if it tanks and Tarantino Trek sucks, it could be another Enterprise/Nemesis-esque one-two knockout combo that ices the franchise again.

>It would follow a proud tradition of Trek shows tripping over their own dick before settling in and getting good.

See this is my problem with Discovery hate because barring TOS this is precisely how Trek has worked ever since and the standards it should be held to follow a curve that starts almost exactly at how bad Discovery is with the obnoxious early episodes and building up more than it ever pays off. The first time Discovery really showed us what it could offer wasn't until episode 5 with Harry Mudd in the episode where he isn't an obsessed deranged murderer.

Honestly I think that was the biggest problem, that The Orville was well into starting to develop its characters, and for the better part of a month Discovery hadn't really even begun to. That's a lot of the reason The Orville felt right while Discovery didn't.

But the Orville needs to cut the shit too. The number of times they just stole a plot or concept from Star Trek and didn't put a spin on it or parody it is too high, and even if nobody ever gets sued over it, at this rate by season 3 they'll deserve to be.

It's bad in different ways than other first seasons, though. I get STD hate for a few of the reasons already given. Canon, era, aesthetics, mood.

That Midnight's Edge video suggests they're going to try to make good with fans and reconcile all the inconsistencies in season 2, and that's what I am hoping STD pulls together. If they keep down the path of shrooms, hairless Klingons, and grimdarkness then kill it now and let's wait to see what QT's got in store.

That also happens when they make burner spectacle movies like Star Trek Into Darkness. Viewers don't think it's bad when they see it, but it's numbing. You don't want to watch it again and it doesn't make you want to watch more of the franchise.

Made a thread about this when I started the show but it's fallen off the last page. I've been slowing down my watching because I really don't want to finish it and be out of episodes to watch. Anyway I'm on season 6 and just watch the two-parter Chain of Command. Now I finally know what everyone keeps referencing lol. What a powerful episode. Not to mention Riker's most badass monologue yet when he tells Jellico what a dickhead he is.

THERE! ARE! FOUR!!! LIGHTS!

When Jellico ordered the 4th duty shift Riker didn't install it, bitched about it, and then had to be told twice.

Jellico said it best himself to Picard:
>"I want this ship ready for action, and I don't have time to give Will Riker or anyone else a chance. And forgive me for being blunt, but the Enterprise is mine now."

The crew, save Data, was unprofessional, and it could've cost lives. Us liking them doesn't make their pouting okay and shouldn't paint Jellico as a heavy.

I disagree. I thought Jellico was alright. If he'd taken a little time to read the crew instead of spending a few days battling them he'd have probably gotten them to suggest half the things he was going to tell them to do.Good managers on competent staff do that. Staff who are on side will be more resilient. Jellico was lucky that shit didn't go wrong outside his plan because the crew in the state it was in with low morale would have responded poorly. You can talk about whining and shit but it doesn't matter. The difference between a crew appearing to comply and being miserable and being miserable is polish on your shit. Shit morale is shit morale and it does affect everything if everyone feels disempowered or unappreciated. You can talk about "Professionalism" all day but Jellico's job includes getting the most out of his crew. They're not military or robots, so data aside that means motivating them and engaging them. Sure he had a great plan but most managers would be able to get their subordinates to dream them up and then would pick and amend the best one. A good manager would just have to suggest that 4 shifts might be better and the crew would jump to do it with a smile on their face.

Jellico's stiff and inefficient approach makes for better TV though. And in the end it's what saves him. He won't fail. It's not humbleness, it's his unwillingness to compromise and his seriousness that gives him the strength to eat Riker's shit and save the day. Did he need to do it that way? But this isn't Gene trek, every captain has their strengths and weaknesses. I like to think that Jellico learned a bit about captaining and so did Riker. In the end they both had to recognise that the other had a point to save Picard and the ship and a lot of lives I suspect. TNG did have a habit of applying character growth quite subtly, so we'd never see if future Jellico was a bit more subtle about his approach to people. Riker was definitely hard on junior officers who didn't do it his way in the future, even himself.

You ignore that they weren't under normal circumstances. You keep saying they're not military when it was clearly a military negotiation and black op taking place. You toss aside the idea of professionalism as if it's not incumbent on any subordinate in any setting to do what they're told. And you ignore the time crunch they were under. It's easy to talk as if Jellico had time to spare to romance the crew, but he didn't. When Picard went back to the past in All Good Things and asked the crew to do a bunch of shit that made no sense, they raised their eyebrows, asked him if he was sure, but they didn't whine.

This wasn't just a manager taking over at your job, dude. Senior officers should have better bearing. Plus they all served on more than one ship under more than one captain-- surely one of them had a hardass superior in the past. And again, Jellico is the one who is man enough to put the petty bullshit aside when he needs Riker to pilot, showing that he knows how to massage egos and humble himself, he just didn't have time for that nonsense under the circumstances. Disagree with me all you want, but I come from a place of expecting better from our crew. They acted like babies.

the crew didnt know about the black op. and every objection they raised was completely within their job description. crusher mentioning medbay gonna have many wounded/dead, just a consideration. riker questioning jellico's crazy war plans (he didnt know about the black op), hes the first officer thats his job, it was all within reason.

After rewatching part one on Heroes & Icons, it does paint some of the senior crew in a bad light. Riker not telling Jellico he wasn't adding the 4th shift in was insubordinate, and his aborted attempt to complain to Picard was too. Picard probably would've told him as much. Troi's empathic abilities apparently only work on Jellico when she sense he's not sure of himself during negotiations. She should've been the first one to know that the man was all business, and instead she is surprised when he tells her he doesn't have time to honeymoon the crew and to get herself a uniform. Geordi's complaints and how he makes them do sound whiny. Everything he's asked to do is attainable, as Data dispassionately points out.

It seems as if the crew doesn't care about making a good impression on their new CO. They expect it to work the other way around. From the minute Jellico steps off the transporter Riker is rolling his eyes, showing that he gives Jellico less of a chance than Jellico does Riker. In fact Riker comes across worse because he seems jealous he didn't get command. The title of the episode itself is a reminder that there is indeed a chain of command in Starfleet, and there is no use bitching about it or trying to circumvent it.

And in the end, IIRC part two correctly, once Data is made first officer the ship seems to be running smoothly. At no point are the halls more crowded or is the ship failing to get up to Jellico's expectations or do crewmen look exhausted. The mission is a success and Jellico tells them it was an honor to serve with them. He ended up getting more out of the crew than they thought they had in them, and Troi keeps the uniform. He was a great captain to have everything from the Cardassians to his crew to time working against him and still accomplish a sensitive mission without incident. His kid's pictures remind us that he's probably a good man, but the situation demands he be terse and have the ship ready for heavy combat. I liked Jellico more by the end of this re-watch.

Plot twist: some fucking vulcan supercomputer is pulling the strings on all of Starfleet, manipulating things so the bright future of TOS/TNG will come to pass in the first place. They knew Lorca was from the mirror universe but he was convenient for the master plan, and that's why doing something WILDLY IRRESPONSIBLE like putting Mirror Georgiou in charge was acceptable. Burnham herself was educated according to a design and conditioned for her future role as a catalytic asshole; the Expeditionary Group was never in the cards. None of these bumbling idiots knows what they're a part of, but everything is connected.

What does Kelpien taste like, do you think?

I want to say chicken, but raising a Kelpien to full size seems like a lot of work to just get the equivalent of like 40 chickens worth of meat. I mean, it must be tasty enough to make them worth eating in a world of high quality food replication, but not tasty enough that humans would just mow down the whole species like so many Doritos. Maybe up there with the finest toro or Kobe beef.

I say we eat Saru just to find out. Like, his leg. Starfleet can grow back Klepien legs, right? I mean, it is the future and all. So yeah, we should see what Saru tastes like. He's a whiny bitch anyway. He won't be missed.

It's just that in 2017, in order to not offend the lowest common denominator, you had to actively offer tribute on the shrine of wymynhood or whatever.

Interesting theory. Like when a smart kid underachieves because they get made fun of for being a nerd. Discovery is Star Trek intentionally failing a test.

I'd say that it's not dumb; it's scared. A bolder show wouldn't have handwaved away so many challenging, intriguing plot threads.

How does star fleet go to the bathroom? I know they have sonic showers, so I figure they don't have very robust plumbing.

My best guess is they vaporize the waste right in the toilet and then they have some sort of sonic bidet to clean the winker. The wife disagrees, and says they probably just beam all the waste directly out of the body and either dump it in space or reuse the raw materials. The evidence she cites is that we see people in the brig all the time, and there's no toilet in there.

I know Disco has some bathroom scenes, are there enough clues there to piece together a bigger picture?

I don't think he actually has that kind of access to the live systems. In a world of big AI simulation I don't think anyone gets to just manipulate data anymore. Certainly not from within the organizational structure of the company.
But sure, he could go back to stealing dna and running his custom whatever. Maybe he's retarded now or Hector "dingding" Salamanca'd, maybe his memories of the whole thing got wiped.

But the whole "the game killed you" thing was lame enough in Playtest, and if we're at the point where we're running some epic space mmo on similar technology, and it's still killing people, that strains belief.

He wasn't though. He was running his own dev build that he made for himself with all sorts of alterations that wouldn't be in the actual game.
>Certainly not from within the organizational structure of the company.
He was the boss of the company, if he stood up to McPoyle then there's not much anyone could do about it.

If him dying in the game didn't imply he died irl (or at least his consciousness dying in-game, leaving a vegetable in meatspace) then there's no reason for that scene of it happening.

Well the fanfic series option is that he goes all dingding and gets obsessed with destroying them like some poorly written evil Stephen Hawking. And there are endless, probably better, variations of this that Star Trek: Voyager writers would totally run with.

I'm kinda happy it's just the director and neither of the writers who wanted to spinoff USS Callister. There are so many terrible things that could happen and I need none of them to happen. And Charlie Brooker doesn't have time for a series, so they'll probably happen.

>Using DNA to create perfect copies is a weird choice when it was established previously that an implant had to be inserted for weeks to do that.

Obviously everybody already has cookies. The DNA was for the digital equivalent of a 3D printer to make their digital bodies. The memories he stole or recompiled somehow.
The DNA was specifically mentioned because it's the only new information.

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.

Everyone should watch voyager first so that there's a steady progression up the trek ladder. VOY -> TNG is a more satisfying experience than TNG -> VOY. Voyager is a little more touchy-feely with some philosophy and idealism thrown in while TNG is more unadulterated, it's kind of like what I imagine TNG would be if it were a little child instead of an adult, and it makes sense to progress from childhood to adulthood than to hop on over to voyager after TNG and feel somewhat jarred. ENT should always come last tho because that way it's kind of like a little encore you get after finishing the others.

>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.

Well I’m glad that it’ll be back later this year, Network shows should not be obligated to do 22 episode seasons so I’m glad they’re keeping it to around 13. Hannibal did as well and helped to keep the quality high with fewer episodes although that’s more of a testament to Bryan Fuller’s showrunning.

Oh hey this guy solved the puzzle.
The two shows airing simultaneously wasn't a coincidence, nor were the odd parallels between certain Orville episodes and other sci-fi shows airing at the same time.
It was strange that STD had a split season, but now that it's returned and some plot bombs have dropped and it's suddenly retroactively a good show, it's apparent that they were playing the audience all along.

Found this on IO9. Had a giggle, some of these should probably be tube emotes.

Botnik studios are pretty prolific.

Made a big stir understandably. I last read Harry Potter in 2000 and I think that if you've not read it you should. It's pretty trippy.
