Oh yeah, I suppose in a battle if you wanted to have impulse power (¼ of the speed of light) in all directions then the ship, like a space x rocket, it should have the ability to thrust movement in all directions. Otherwise turning could prove to be problematic.

>>The further from the center of mass you can place a thruster, the more maneuverability you have along that axis
Which at warp, if nacelles are the centers of thrust for warp displacement, vertically oriented nacelles (as opposed to saucer) would still have the same maneuverability advantages/disadvantages as the normal configuration, just along a different axis. The center of thrust at impulse is the impulse reactor, which is behind the middle of the saucer anyway, so it wouldn't matter which direction the saucer was facing again, it just limits the left to right movement, as the current configuration limits up and down movement, which in space, is just as dangerous. I don't know why this is so hard to get, but it makes the battle with khan make a lot more sense to me.

>>routinely go under manual piloting.
Naw. Even when we see people at the helm, they aren't flying by stick, the computer is doing most of the work. As Wesley tells Lore, they just have to set a heading, which is a fraction of the total work to actually to get the ship to adjust its velocity to head in that direction. That's why it's so outrageous that time Picard actually takes control with only the thrusters -- because normally the ship would have to do all the calculations to account for inertia. Even in real spaceships, its impossible to fly only by stick, which is why we have reaction control systems way back to the earliest manned spaceflight. In reality, the computer would be doing all of it, humans would be lucky to even have a say in where the ship went in a combat situation, as the computer would always be able to handle it better.

>> wide view sticking out the top of the saucer. The viewscreens
The viewscreen isn't a window in the prime timeline, except in discovery, which doesn't count. So this has nothing to do with it. You could have an vertical saucer and a horizontal viewscreen, because its just an output from cameras (or, a holographic integration of many different camera feeds in my headcanon.) The whole idea of a bridge and a viewscreen is metaphorical, I think. Really, they would be in some spherical augmented reality environment, deep in a heavily armored section, perhaps separated and communicating virtually so no one strike could take out all CNC personnel.

>>Roddenberry's original vision of the bridge as being this wide viewing platform
What? He could have had the viewscreen be a window on the original enterprise, and deliberately didn't do it. He did deliberately include actual windows in the top of both bridges, which also doesn't make sense. It's really dumb to have your command and control section have a big open section to space. I don't care how much transparent aluminum it is, it can't be as strong as actual hull.

>>You don't throw ergonomics out of the window for manned spacecraft,
There's tons of ergonomics in the bridge and rest of interior sections. That has nothing to do with how the hull is shaped.

>as the computer would always be able to handle it better.
That doesn't make manual controls useless. You can go use the NASA flight simulator if you can get an appointment. It's monumentally difficult to get yourself out of any kind of spin, but they still train for it.

>The viewscreen isn't a window in the prime timeline
That's a practical filming issue, you can see how Roddenberry wanted it to be in The Cage. There is supposed to be a window.

The Shenzhou is the bad one. It has a wide window but the bridge is on the bottom, so they can't look up, which is the other direction humans are good at looking.

>I don't care how much transparent aluminum it is, it can't be as strong as actual hull.
None of these ships can do shit about a torpedo aimed at the bridge with the shields down one way or the other. That's also what the battlebridge is for.

Fact of the matter is, if the bridge wasn't meant to be a viewing platform, there's absolutely no reason for it to be on the outer edge of the ship. It should be an internal room at the center of mass of the saucer like the battle bridge is for the secondary hull.

A vertically oriented ship could have a place in fleet formations, especially if heavily armed to deal with flanking. It wouldn't be something you'd utilize as a 'main' ship in combat though, as it would serve better as a weapons platform and shield. Especially with the design of Federation warp cores in any era past Enterprise, you are adding in either extra risk or unneeded complexity with a tall ship. But you could utilize the tallness to stack multiple cores, and you have more surface area for phaser arrays, forcing an enemy to spread their weapons fire out or to pick and choose whether they're going to target the warp engines or weapon arrays.

But long ships are better for your average Starfleet mission. Less of your ship is presented when facing your enemy or retreating, allowing for concentration of the shields for maximum protection for minimal energy costs.

Action figures are the worst of all of it. I searched to see if there were any Trek figures made by McFarlane Toys, and there's a Kirk as well as a Picard. Both are awesome as I expected, but that's it besides a few collectibles here and there. Most action figures look like 1950s low effort 5 year old's toys.

There an't even Lego sets for fuck's sake. So much of Trek's problems have to do with who owns the rights to what. The fanbase is a bunch of fucking nerds; you'd think they'd have a decent amount of McFarlane quality figures or some highly detailed mini statues or something. God damn.

Hey, between TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT.. I'd probably say ENT is the weakest (but it's a tough call because VOY isn't that great).. but much akin to Star Wars, the worse shit that comes out, the more it makes previous mediocrity seem golden by comparison. I've come to see that ENT, in spite of its flaws, at least has FAITH OF THE heart and FEELS like Star Trek. As nuTrek and Discotrash have continuously set the bar lower, well.. I've come to appreciate the lesser treks more, and seen that they aren't so bad.. even the worst VOY/ENT episodes are basically on par with the best of the best of the best of STD.

Oh well at least we got Orville.

Older television programs were limited by the budget and production costs, making them lean on the writing much more often. Its why there's so much philosophical debate and not as much pewpew.
The people in charge of these productions wont take a risk with a heady concept, even moreso if it challenges peoples beliefs. Its better to gamble on the action and explosions and visceral reactions.

Could you imagine a conflict in game of thrones being settled peacefully by using words? All modern media can do is quick escalation to the point of over stimulation.

DS9 2x02 5/10 The Circle - The crew are on the hunt for the terrorist group The Circle who are planning a coup, meanwhile Kira is transferred to Bajor due to promotion. Sisko is ordered not to interfere with Bajoran affairs due to the Prime Directive & to evacuate DS9 of all non Bajorans due to safety concerns. Odo seemed out of character when he mentioned Kira's affinity for breaking the rules "Cardassian rules, Bajoran rules, Federation rules" in a positive way, he normally comes across as an authoritarian who respects the rule of law.

It also reflects a general shift in cultural attitudes toward war from the Cold War to the War on Terror. Questioning American military adventures overseas can only be done if it's played off as dark humor, but the official objective of the War on Terror can't be questioned. The ideological precepts of the war are also reproduced on television, most egregiously in shows like 24 which just flat out justify the use of torture, but also in post-9/11 Trek.

It's weird, looking back on an episode of Deep Space 9 like Inter arma enim silent leges that criticizes covert intelligence operations. Nowadays you have Batman wiretapping Gotham to defeat the Joker. I'd honestly be surprised if Batman hasn't waterboarded someone to save the day yet. Meanwhile, TNG had an episode centering around the futility of torture against a strong enough will.

War started to become sexy again in the 80s, but it really hit its stride with 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq. The mainstream only started questioning the War on Terror (even if not the objective itself) around 2006, when it became clear we were going to be stuck in Iraq for a while and had turned a bad situation worse, needlessly and recklessly. Ideological neoconservatism creeped into popular culture something fierce, and it's still there. Rarely do you see someone treat war the way Kurt Vonnegut did. "War is hell" got replaced with "war is bad ass" for a generation that never had to experience conscription into an even fight.

Well said, society functions like a metronome, and a swing to one end necessitates a swing to the other. As it is said, there is no light without darkness. And as Star Trek tells us, the only way to a utopian future is through decades of hell. Let's hope that's truly the case because we might be in for a hell of a ride.

First, I apologize for the rant.. but.. well, I feel the dichotomy of the Vaccines-R-Gud vs the Vaccines-cause-autism is a false dichotomy that hides the reality of the situation by way of polarization

I'm just going to have to point something out here, something that I personally have never heard voiced, aside from in my own opinion. Vaccines are not good for humanity. And not for the reasons the so-called anti-vaxxer movement stereotypically claims. I believe if you understand the basics of evolutionary theory, you might agree with me, unless you've been overly-conditioned by the polarized propoganda that surrounds both 'sides' of this issue.

To put it in terms Sisko would understand, giving yourself a vaccine is like playing a game of slow pitch softball with children. Getting a disease and beating it yourself is like playing real baseball, with adults, some of which might play in the minor and major leagues. You might get your ass kicked, but as long as you survive, it'll make you a better player. The idea of 'herd immunity' weakens the entire herd by selecting for immune weakness, by taking away the only real form of natural selection that still exists in a civilized species. And worst of all, it's predicated on the false belief that antibiotics are more than temporary. But they aren't. We are engaged in an arms race between microbiota and science which we are mathematically guaranteed to lose. It is inevitable, and worse yet, it may be less than a century away. We can develop as many antibiotic compounds as we like, but life, as Jeff Goldblum says, "uh.. finds a way", and with microbes it does so very quickly, as the microbes living on and around your body have had a generation or two born in the time it took you to read this. Ever see soap or hand sanitizer that claim…

We're not swinging backwards and forwards, we're on a drunken wander in an upwards direction. So no, what I'm saying is you're wrong because while we are going up and down, overall we go up further than down. We will not descend into a deeper dark ages than before civilisation, we will not even descend to pre industrial levels. We might drop a bit and we will climb to new heights when we realise our potential. Eventually we will swing but it won't be as far down as the swing before it, even if it will be further from the trend.

I focused on the media because you seemed obsessed with stuff that's just social media noise. I even said it gets more complicated. Stop being obtuse, refusing to acknowledge someone else's points and pretending they said something else doesn't make you more convincing. By the way, I know our space stations are failing but on the other hand we have gotten very good at selfies in cool places.

>the concord just made supersonic airflight a toy of the rich for a relatively short time
That was mostly because the underlying concept of supersonic flight was sabotaged (e.g. the trumped up issues with sonic booms) for economic reasons such as when it was realised you could just sell 'first class' subsonic for the same mark-up and make a much higher profit, among other things. That and the Soviets had given up on doing it after fucking it up so it was no longer a concern to respond to them. Actual space exploration (i.e. the Apollo program) was also abandoned once it was no longer a useful geopolitical tool. It's pretty sad in both cases when you consider that the handful of millions it would cost to fund is nothing compared to the cost of e.g. the Iraq War (trillions total) but the depressing fact is humanity only bothers seriously trying to invent new technology for either greed or conflict (and the latter is arguably a sub-type of profit, since some form of material or narrow gain is the goal of conflict). The current goal of humanity is the accumulation of resources and playing that game well means not investing in technology that won't help you do so.

If you want to think of a practical reason for the Federation abandoning money beyond it just sounding utopian maybe it's that: to change the incentive for doing things from only profit/survival to its own reward but acknowledging that humanity at least is flawed so replacing that reward with reputation. Multiple times TNG mentions that reputation (for example through service in Starfleet) is the only way to 'gain' in the Federation I think at least once in direct comparison to how the gaining and hoarding of wealth/resources is a big incentive in our time (possibly the episode with the defrosted 21st century people?).

I've seen it argued before solely by Mike Stoklasa of Red Letter Media fame (buit he makes a convincing argument) that TOS was more that than it was actual Sci-Fi. Tons of people die in the series, and usually in pretty horrible ways.

Enterprise is much tamer in that regard....until you get to Season 3 that is. Then the horror is wasting an entire season on 9/11 Trek and the crew getting slowly slaughtered along the way.

This is why I was moaning about how it doesn't get even remotely good for a whole month.

You can't do that to fans, they'll give up.

In Voyager season 1 episode 1 there's a fire in sickbay, why didn't the computer erect a forcefield to suffocate the fire like in that TNG episode with the Irish http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Up_The_Long_Ladder_(episode) ?

So kids would use it to abduct and molest the Janeway doll. Did they make the amphibious creatures they turn into, with offspring?

I'm not sure this is a good idea. A comedy Trek cartoon made by the Rick & Morty guy?
Wasn't market saturation one of the things people claim killed off the franchise last time?

No problem, bud. I'm glad you guys are enjoying the releases. The last one has a ton of great shit. Still looking for a damn place to upload the other installments which are ready now. I don't really want to do SFTP.

How would you guys feel about a private torrent? Tracker free just hosted by me. I have 10gbps symmetrical and can seed 24/7 so you would be able to get it quick even if I was the only seeder, other people could seed if they wanted, and people could pick and choose what they want to download as well. Just not sure if that is kosher. The mods have been very kind about my previous uploads. I don't want to overstep but I'd like to make the complete collection available to everyone here and its damn large when you consider the comics, books, fan films and shows, extras, scores, documentaries, interviews, pics, articles, spoofs, ads, PSAs, site rips etc so a private .torrent file would be perfect.

If you watch their Half in the Bag for The Force Awakens, a lot of decisions Rian Johnson made in The Last Jedi feel like reactions to their specific likes and dislikes of that film. Probably some sort of hindsight bias, but give it a try and you'll see what I mean.

Agree with these fellas a lot, always loved the motion picture for its visuals, and that awesome score. Among my favorites. I'd say I appreciate it equally with WoK, but star trek IV is still the top of the OST films, you just can't beat that cozy affair.

I think 4 is the most accessible, and certainly is the most 'normal' of them. It starts off as a Trek movie, becomes a real world movie in the middle, and ends feeling like they brought the real world back to the world of Star Trek.

But The Undiscovered Country is a secret TNG 2-parter set in the TOS era. People forget that TNG was going full steam when that movie was made. 6 will always be my favorite movie of the franchise, just because it's so rare to see a series you love go on so long and still manage to end on an amazing high note.

I do think it's pretty amazing that Leonard Nimoy wanting to quit the franchise accidentally spawned a trilogy with him at the center of it all. Even though Kirk is the Captain and therefore seems to be the focus of the series, somehow in all 6 of the movies he's the real driver of the plot. Whether he's getting his mind blown by a gargantuan machine cloud ship, his brother is trying to reach Old Testament Space God, or he's trying to save the Klingon species, he's at the center of it all.
