Why did they let Neelix remain in possession of a phaser when they were escaping during the earthquake? Also, is there a reason why Voyager is so much smaller in size than the Enterprise?

The Dominion have dreadnoughts.

However I think combat ability is basically reactor, power reserves and the shields and guns to use them. Being agile, needing a smaller shield bubble etc help though. Being big is entirely a liability except for non combat toys and stuff.

I got the impression the D was one on one more effective than the defiant, easily probably entirely down to having a bigger reactor. But that with the same resources you could build and man several defiant classes which would tear it apart in seconds. The ENT E was basically the largest dedicated combat ship and that thing was ridiculously powerful I guess that's what happens when you make a bigger ship and only add a couple of holodecks, then use the rest of the space for phasers and shields.

>Why did they let Neelix remain


Being big is efficient, you need fewer reactors and less crew to produce more violence

I have no idea how real spcae warfare would work, TOS and TNG fought like boats out of Sid Meier's Pirates purely for budgetary reasons. With computer guided phasers lumbering battleships don't have much in the way of defense, no matter how many times they shout "Evasive maneuvers". The only real maneuvering is controlling the range so you are in range to fire your own weapons when they aren't ready to fire theres, I assume phasers lose power with range (and you would assume there are torpedo counter measures that would get more effective at range but we never see any regular chaff, just the rare "brilliant plan" where they shoot inverted polaron plasma out the deflector or some shit)

Fighters might be helpful because theoretically inertial dampeners and lower mass would allow for nigh infinite maneuverability (which someone doesn't stop people from dramatically falling over on the bridge) to evade torpedoes, but there's no reason to think they could dodge phasers.

Dodging a bolt of light is hard, dodging someone's aim is easier. Targeting computers are pretty dope but apparently they miss so maybe it's hard for them to hit something at half light speed.

Also big should be more efficient but wouldn't the shields be spread thinner? More capacity but easier to punch through like when they say "shields at 75%" but have damage.

OP here. Im on "Cathexis," and I'm glad they gave Tuvok more screen time as the season goes by. This seems to be at the cost of Paris scenes. The last centric episode he had was Ex Post Facto which was good but he's had like 3 lines in subsequent episodes.

It's mobile F2P game that's of course bombards you with pay stuff. But I find it interesting. It actually has John de Lancie in the game voiceing Q. The over all plot is the timelines, got messed up with these anomalies. You, the captain has to stop it. But it's pretty cool, almost ever character you might have seen in Star Trek is there, plus interesting variants. The plot fluff is interesting. Like when you run into Admiral Riker from "All Good Things", you can ask him about what he thinks about the our,(prime) timeline. And it's interesting, because he says there was no war with the Dominion in "that" timeline. It's just cool way of masshing everything up in one place.

They just released something with building starbases, which can only be done if you have a fleet of your own of have joined one. I haven't had a chance to check it all out, but from what I see the content went horribly wrong. I think it's in there still or removed it. The only real interaction with people that you really have to do is the daily space battle thing (the Worf icon), get rank and if you keep at it, even with 10 ticket things, you can get high enough to get the rewards.

Other then that is just a grinder/time-killer game. What can I say I'm a sucker for almost every Star Trek game. Like the Star Trek PC games that came out in th elate 90's/early 2000s, I remember PC Gamer giving those games meh reviews, but in every article they always said, "if you like Star Trek then You'll like this game". lol, that or I'm a huge dork.

Why did it have to give me David Marcus on my post.

i never said anything about child actors. i mean child characters. you either have them be children and do coming of age bullshit with them a la wesley, or botched attempts at making them deal with adult problems like nog losing a leg and being all PTSD. either way it rarely works and they are consistently the weakest characters of their respective series. even Kes sucked just by virtue of not being human adult age.

Do y'all think that TOS is a little underrated on this board? I don't see many of the cast topping the lists in the Ranking or the All-Franchise Crew threads. Most of the headcanons I'm reading here don't seem to concern the series very much either (possibly cause it has so many one-off plots, but I digress.)

I'm not a trekkie by nature, I enjoy it just like any other good TV show. But I've slowly completed all the series, and came away with what I assume are the usual criticisms: everyone is so best of the best in TNG that it's hard to do conflict based in character flaw (outside of Worf), DS9 is fantastic but lacks the frontier motif that's in other Treks, VOY has its moments but is mostly mishandled, and ENT starts with a bang, then gets really boring, then good again, then shittily ended. But still the only criticism I can levy against TOS is that there are retarded 60s camp episodes - but unlike bad episodes in other series, they still charm the pants off of me.

Is my reverence for TOS just me being a casual? Cause you guys seem to enjoy it well enough, but it places like, 3rd for most of you.

I am of a mind that the TNG, DS9 and VOY are the best Star Treks. I appreciate TOS for being the foundation everything else is built on but I feel like TOS never was as well written but that's just because expectations for television in the 60s were pretty much non existent. That said, I really dislike the new reboots because I find them too CGI laden with the emphasis being on Avengers style set pieces rather than the ethical issues and relationships TNG focuses more on.

Just saw S2E8 A Matter of Honor recently. This episode without a doubt has sealed my commitment to watching the entire series. The scene where Riker demands Picard's surrender, who smilingly agrees is some A++ acting, writing, storyboarding, everything, the episode just blew me away to be frank.

What are some fan productions that you guys enjoy?

Today I watched the pilot for Star Trek Continues for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of it all. The writing and dialogue were on point. I was pretty blown away by the set design. And the costumes felt very authentic. Some of the actors weren't a great fit but I was surprised by how well most of them did.
