Ensign Woof

In fact he wouldn't even be an ensign because he would be a dog. He wouldn't be able to carry out the most basic of tasks.

He's probably my favorite actor, period. He played in some crazy old flicks, like re-animator or from beyond. Anyone who likes him should watch the black cat from Masters of Horrors. This guy truly has a talent for the unusual, creepy or dark fantasy.

>Weyoun suffers a little from being overshadowed, he's a good villain but he's standing in next to Dukat and Wynn.
Well Dukat doesn't really fit into the Star Trek villain scheme of things, too batman-villain-ish, too one-dimensional too un-philosophical. As for Wynn she would have overshadowed Weyoun, if only they actually went ahead and made her the main antagonist during the finale instead of Dukat.

Honestly, with exception of perhaps Stewart and in flashes Brooks, none of the acting in Trek is delivered with true gravitas, it's delivered in a hammy way. I mean nobody chews the scenery like Bill Shatner, and he's the very type of Trek itself. For as many actors Nimoy inspired, he is really hamming his way through the whole show tbh. Same with any of the others.

Combs is brilliant because he is obviously very conscious of it. He's a genre actor, but he leans into it beautifully. I think his scenery-chewage is a big part of his appeal, but I feel that way about the campy-ness of the acting in Trek in general.

It's interesting but their premise of evolution is extremely flawed which is a shame. Star Trek gets so many scientific and philosophical conundrums so right and the idea for this episode is great (also the way Paris describes his Warp 10 experience is pretty much what most people experience when they experience ego death on psychedelics) but evolution is not guided or geared towards anything. If it weren't for that flaw, this would definitely be one of my favourite episodes, in general and of Tom Paris.

Either the Space Race one, or the one where he buys an old ship and it turns out the ship's AI manifests as a hot girl who tries to turn him into a huge NEET.

Both are just so Paris, and they focus more on his reputation as a pilot than on "lol 20th century stuff, amirite?" Overall, I think Paris had a lot of potential, and in episodes like this it's almost realized.

Well I think the idea arose because a tile mosaic from an Islamic Mosque was being projected onto a model called 'Klingon Funeral Ship' but I'm just going off of memory since I don't want to scroll up and relive the horror of seeing the 'new klingons' again

From way that a lot of people involved in Discovery have been talking in social media and interviews, it seems like a realistic fear to worry that Discovery could trample all the most established and fleshed out alien race by rewriting them into an allegory for Islam. No, there isn't evidence, but it's not a bad educated guess, in fact if we make it through the pilot with even a slight amount of philosophy and little to no politically-polarized modern geopolitical virtue signalling loose semi-allegories I might consider watching the show in spite of the fact it's another worthless prequel. It's fine if they comment on current events as long as they tackle it philosophically and do so in a way that doesn't make it blatant.. doing so means that when you watch it 10 years from now it looks like the script was written by some retarded child.

>>I mean with those kinds of broad strokes you could equate a lot of the militaristic cultures in Trek to (a politicized, paranoid caricature of) muslims.
Yup, that's the same thing as saying it's impossible. I'm not saying it's impossible to compare anything to anything. Notice two posts above this one I said that you could compare Trek races to the Beatles. To reiterate, it is possible to compare anything to any other thing. Moreover, it's clearly what you've done, and I've just laid out reasons why I think it makes less sense than other interpretations, would be a terrible direction for the franchise and STD, and is frankly stupid.

Your argument rests on the claim that I am making an absolute claim, saying that your connection is impossible or that you shouldn't be allowed to talk about it. Me saying such a thing is nowhere to be found, so the 'argument' is really you just screaming that Klingons are Muslims, and other people disagreeing, and then you getting mad at them for disagreeing. Not very substantive.

You wanna talk about how Klingons are muslims? Fine. But every Trekkie is going to have an opinion about that and is going to talk to you about it if you post that idea on a Trek board. If I made a post about how the Borg queen was really the mother of Justin Trudeau, shouldn't I expect people to make statements about how much water my fan theory holds?

nb because this thread is almost more garbage than STD itself now.

Hypothetical: As Picard is dying (for real, this time), he is visited one last time by Q, who says the trial is over. Not guilty. Q offers Picard Continuum membership, for lack of a better term.

Does Picard choose to explore the entirety of this reality with the powers of a Q, or does he choose to die?

That makes sense, the Q are before the universe. We know that Q's appearance as a human is just a costume. You say that Q torments the creation in order to raise the creation up to the level of the Q/Universe, and that the distinction between Q and the universe is an illusion, which I agree with, therefore the Q we see is just in fact the manifestation of the creation of the universe itself that appears through time, a sort of shadow of creation that exists trapped within the universe, omnipotent, and yet as an appearance, totally powerless.

Therefore it makes that the appearance of Q is the devil, but only the appearance. One could say the same about the surface ego, a mere costume that clothes the fabric of the universe interwoven through us all. When Picard and the crew react to Q, they merely react to themselves in some way. The very existence of Q is offensive to humans, in the same way that humans seem offensive to Q, it's a kind of mutual reaction that occurs, seemingly chaotic to all of them that works itself out.

I've only seen a few episodes of Voyager so I don't know if anything more is revealed about Q after his DS9 episode.

also of note is Q's love of games, of the unpredictable. He admires cheating and underhandedness, loves chaos and despises rigid code, dogma and ethics, and so he is offended by Picard. It's as if the perfect order he belongs to cannot be contained in that single costumed appearance and so it enjoys chaos, and yet that chaos is part of the order of the universe.

There's actually QUITE a lot about the Q in Voyager, so you should definitely check out "Death Wish" and "the Q and the Grey" if you're interested in Q lore. In the former we actually travel to the Q continuum, in the latter we get to observe a civil war within the continuum. In fact, that's how we know the Q are before the universe.
Janeway asks Q something to the effect of:
'How do the Q reproduce? Surely there have must have been a time before you were omnipotent.'
'The Q don't reproduce! The Q have always existed.'

I've seen two Voyager episodes in which Q has a son or something. And there's that one TNG episode, I can't quite recall, where a girl is recruited into the continuum, or she was already a part of the continuum and didn't know it, I'm not sure. The one where he turns Beverly Crusher into a bitch.

just watched "true q."

amanda is not a q but at the same time she is.

she discovers omnipotence she can do anything as everything can but remains human. Similar to the second Q episode, in which Riker is shown the power of the Q but cannot use it to as Riker but discovers that the crew and all of the seeming flaws and defects that make up the whole are more powerful than any single human's idea of omnipotence, a false notion of omnipotence vs true omnipotence.

Good point, out of all of the Ferengi he displays the most compassion (aside from Rom of course), but in acts of kindness he still charges. He often masks his schemes in good deeds, like the betting pool and O'Brien and Bashir's racquet ball match, where he claims that the proceeds will go to blankets for Bajoran war orphans, while using it to get customers back in his bar.

It's not true to say that Quark believes in nothing but earning profit, but it's his way of life. The show is lax on moral stance as often the self-serving interests of one individual like Quark end up adding up to the greater good.

Okay. So I know you took a look at the title and your wondering why. Let me explain before you turn around and arm the photon's. See in a world as big as outlandish as star trek is. It needs normal characters. People who seem much more well, basic.

Think about it. Star trek is filled with people who have can accept making universe changing decisions. Obrien is so diffrent, he does things out of a sense of duty more than anything. He cares about his family. He isn't concered with the layers behind everything.

And that's what makes him such a great foil. Against the back drop of star trek where drastic universe changing things happen on an episode by episode basis its nice to see someone just have simple family problems. And while this doesn't make him the most interesting character, it makes him an important element.

Its easy to forget that even in a world where humanity has moved on, improved so much, that people are still very much people. That people can live relatively normal lives (never mind the random perils of space thats just part of working for startfleet). Sure, there's a little bit of this with a lot of trek characters, but miles is different.

What people forget is that so many of the other charters in trek that we get to see in basic capacities are less than basic people. Captains and their ilk have this romanticism to them, that's not obrien at all. Piccard will tell her we'll always have paris, and a guy like miles will tell her shes a swell girl.

It's important to note that the humanization of treks world becomes a little more plausible through someone like miles. That even if he's not that exciting that he helps step the stage for believability. Its a big universe but, hey someones gotta be at home arguing with their wife.

I know I'd be broccoli. I even hid from real life in computer games and it didn't make things better. I had to rescue myself, in real life there's no Picard and Geordie to compassion you back to sanity. I guess that's the real evolution of humanity in star trek. People do give a fuck about each other, even the losers like us get a chance to contribute their value.

And it's the same with O'Brien. He is an ordinary guy but he's a genius and master tactician. He's relatable but he still is exceptionally talented and deserves to be there. But he's grounded and knows what he likes.

I mean O'Brien still grew up working class but in modern society that's it. In the 24th century it took 40 years but eventually he got the recognition he deserved and the opportunity to use his talent.

Also his wife is awful. No.

O'Brien reminds me of my father. Same kind of attitude, and the same sort of skillset. My father can also fix everything he gets his hands on, often better than the professionals. O'Brien has his kayaking, my father rides dirtbikes. Occasionally he falls off and comes back black and blue. Other people his age are beginning to worry about breaking hips.

Me, I'm more of a Barclay, too. Though I used to identify with Data a lot, because muh autism. But I'm seeing more and more in Worf, and beginning to appreciate his trouble of being between different worlds, and how it often just means that he is different. Worf is Worf, and a lot of his episodes are about him balancing his internal sense of honour between what the world expects. The joke is that Worf is permanently disgruntled... and he is. But I think that's what I like about him.

Weird, how on rewatching you suddenly start liking characters you never really liked. Already had it with Kira, Odo too. It's good that they brought Worf to DS9. He really shone, there, while on TNG he was actually kind of weak.

I wish there was enough footage of real old KES so they could go back and edit her into VOY

Due to spending too much time on the internet on political debates or talking about social justice for the longest time my entire outlook on life was fucked up, only in black and white. After watching a lot of Star Trek over the past few months, I feel like I'm not really weird for thinking that there's hope.

I mean yeah we probably won't ever have starships or anything like that, but it's really the fact that there is something out there that says that humanity has good instead of everyone and their mother saying that humanity sucks and will kill themselves, regardless of whether it's true or they're just saying it so senpai can notice them and have sex with them.

Maybe it was because it was a different era but I dunno I guess I'm just tired of seeing pessimism everywhere and shit. I'm not saying we should vomit rainbows 24/7 but we shouldn't be vomitting shit 24/7 either.

I don't know what else to say but thanks Roddenberry for creating this magnificent franchise.

Definitely Sulu, since the cats also have the same kind of facial features as the characters:
Kirk: Golden god even features pure American cat
Spock: Refined, sharp, angled features, god-tier ears
McCoy: Old, gruzzled, round faced and rough around the edges
Scott: A blobby scottish pile
Sulu: Sharp, dignified, angular features cat, rather than what would be our Chekov cat, pic related (but with black hair)

Is there any other series out there that has an optimistic outlook on humanity like Star Trek? It doesn't have to be sci-fi either.

Oh yeah, I recall the original being a bit optimistic, dunno if the remake is the same in that regard tried watching an episode of that and it was kinda bleh. Knight Rider as well to a certain extent, or maybe it was the cheese.

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.

Voyager subtly plays with the idea that different species go to an afterlife specific to them (it's not the most original idea, it's like saying that Christians go to Christian heaven, Muslims go to Muslim heaven, etc.)

Although in the same way it kind of pulls the punch, leaving it up to you to decide whether it's suggesting this is what actually happens to people when they die, or just that people's expectations build a heaven in the near-death state (which is the issue in real life too) :

>B'Elanna goes to Klingon hell, gets angry
>Neelix DOESN'T go to the Great Forest, is greatly disappointed
>Those aliens who, when they died, went to live in that planet's rings as energy

And then of course 'Coda'...so we can say that either there is or isn't an afterlife in Star Trek, but if there is, each species/religion has a unique one. So that means either that all humans are always only eaten by the Coda dude -- that our afterlife in particular and perhaps afterlives in general are actually bunk and just ways for energetic beings to eat our life force after we're done with it...

...or that (and this is the one I prefer) that was just some freaky Delta quadrant alien who attacked Janeway in particular, and all the stuff he said was just lies to trick her.

This guy: True eventual devourer of your immortal soul or just a lying dipshit -- you decide.

You know, Voyager is actually surprisingly good. That's the best way to describe it. Surprisingly good. Every time.

With everything I've heard about it, I was certainly not expecting to enjoy it as much as I am. I wouldn't call it the best, but it's hardly the worst either. Though, I'm finding season 5 to be pretty poor overall.

I have a secret theory that Neelix is actually the Caretaker Array alien, and that he spends his many many many years spying on aliens across the galaxy, and abducts ships for the purpose of riding them back all the way to their home system. Everything that happens in Voyager that is weird and has no real explanation is just Neelix fucking with them to make things interesting.

So for this episode, he was basically doing the Nagilum thing to learn about how each species on Voyager would deal with experiencing their particular afterlife.
