Hey, the BoP could be the K'vort class, which is literally just an upscaled B'rel/D12.

No excuse for things like the runabout and shuttle being huge though, or the borg cube being so small.

The excuse is they're not supposed to be to scale. Why do people get pedantic about things not living up to expectations they were never designed to aim for in the first place?

They're fucking micromachines, if the shuttles were to scale you'd lose them in a grain of dust. The Borg cube wouldn't be a very micro machine either.

Teraquads, not terabytes. What is a quad as compared to a byte? Who knows. This was done intentionally, so to make it impossible to make comparisons between contemporary computing power and memory storage with the numbers mentioned in trek. Presumably, a teraquad is many, many terabytes of information. Gigaquads and kiloquads are mentioned too.

Really though, the enterprise computer would have to have obscene amounts of storage and processing power. I mean it's got all the history, knowledge and obscure cultural data of earth, as well as every planet in the federation, not to mention the responsibility of managing ship systems which are mostly automated.

It would probably be less retarded if it popped out of the helm console or something, so Riker could actually pilot the ship based off sensor telemetry and not just looking out the fucking window, presuming to know where exactly the 700-metre-long starship is relative to everything else.

Manual piloting of a spacecraft, even a large one, I'm fine with. Doing it by eye, however, is just fucking stupid.

Oh oh oh i remember one more.

The reason that Enterprise was cancelled after season 4 ended was the same reason that Firefly was ended, and that's because the studio was only counting the viewership on the nights the new episode was airing, when many more people were watching the reruns on the late night reshowings (someone fact check me here?).

Some time during the 90s, I received a book from my older brother that I'm fairly sure had blue prints and schematics of various Star Trek shit. I do not remember much about it. I have searched for a long time both the internet and my house for this book but to no avail. I only wish to identify it so that i may buy a new one.

What i can remember, is that
>cover was generally blue with STAR TREK in appropriate font, colored yellow
>pages were dark blue in color, with yellow LCARS-esque borders and white or light colored text and imagery
>it was mostly focused on the Enterprise D but did contain other stuff
>pages had specific deck and section schematics/blueprints
>i think the page numbers were located in little starfleet emblems at the bottom of each page
>the end of the book had individual pages devoted to weapons, i specifically remember a romulan disruptor
>pic related is the only thing ive found that resembles what i remember, but the colors are not as i recalled, having dark blue text and light blue page, instead of the dark blue page with yellow/white text that I remember.

Please help me identify this book.

You can find a lot of this stuff if you do a Google image search for "Star Trek Blueprints" and set the colour control to blue. I can't guess which images might be from OP's book, but if they aren't sourced on the page you find them you can usually pick that up with a reverse image search.

I just thought about how when they're designing the weapons that aside from the basics like grip, nozzle etc. they have no idea what anything is

They probably just throw bumps and lumps in because they looked cool and then the writers of those encyclopaedias call them inertial dampeners, coolers and phase inject automation circuitry.

In real life, if there was a way to achieve superluminal speeds, it would also be a planet-destroying superweapon when used to ram a planet.

In star trek, the Romulan commander would shout some commands and all his dudes working the control panels would be blasted with fireworks and tossed around the bridge, and the ship would be consumed in a fireball that destroys the Golden Gate Bridge because they missed Star Fleet Academy for a few miles. But nobody uses that shit anymore except to commit suicide, so the Romulans are given posthumous awards of valor and peace is finally and permanently reached between the Federation and the Romulan Empire.

The more Sci-fi shows I watch which involve war/villains/combat and FTL the more I wonder how the plentiful ships of limited military value (civilian traders, cargo, etc.) aren't just used as an easy kamikaze against any super vessels or even en masse against whole fleets.


Raptors warping in/out next to a battlestar caused significant damage. Basestars have even less hull strength. I know it wouldn't have made sense to use the raptors or civilian ships as weapons once they were on the run but it should have been the centre of all military strategy prior to the fall of The Colonies.

In The Doctor And The Enterprise, Kirk get caught completely flatfooted by the Sontarans' enthusiasm for kamekaze tactics. Indeed, their willingness to try ramming first, before anything else. GLORIOUS!

Perhaps ramming speed is the maximum impulse speed where the ships is still somewhat maneuverable, if they need to make any last second course corrections.

Am I a bad Trek fan if DS9 is my favorite of the series? I feel like it's dumber than others I've started watching (TOS, finished TAS, and TNG) but the soap opera shit sucks me in more, and makes me feel more invested in the characters during the stand alone episodes. Like, in the BWT thread I was complaining about not caring out Beverly Crusher in Remember Me. I feel like if Remember Me was a DS9 episode, I would've been crying by the end. Idk, what makes you guys like a certain Trek above the others?

Well, I just saw "Rascals", the TNG episode where Picard, Guinan, Ro Laren, and Keiko O'brien are turned into 12 year olds.

And as I watched that scene where Keiko asks Miles if he could still "be her husband" even though she's stuck in a child's body, I thought to myself, "I bet someone wrote a god damn pedo fanfic."

So I checked online. And I was right. What the fuck is wrong with you people?

One thing that always annoyed me in TNG was how underused the main bridge was, specifically the absence of side stations where we associate Spock and Uhura. Instead we had two completely unused walls with just with the ops and helm at the front. It almost looked like a luxury apartment, and these were two people watching cable on a big ass plasma TV.

The 'Spock area' (if you can call it that) is the wall behind Worf at tactical with walk ons randomly pressing things, and it's so out of the way even on HD that it's almost irrelevant. The only time we see it in any meaningful way is if a scene needs a main character, usually Data, to be using it.

"Yesterdays Enterprise" did actually have a revamped bridge more like what it should have been to begin with, but this was a single ep sadly. "Generations" sucked as a movie, but even if only right before Ent-D was destroyed we got to see the bridge as I would have preferred it from day one.

Basically every time they showed another ship's bridge from TNG on there was either some weird lattice they put up so they wouldn't have to repaint a wall, or it was a tacticool display. Excelsior is the first one that springs to mind.

I don't agree that the conference table sucked, I always thought that it gave a more personal feel to whatever they were discussing.

For that matter the way they designed the Waiting Room, their conference rooms, the mess hall, was all better than anything in previous treks IMO. Except for the bridge layout, I would really have liked to have seen a segmented bridge with an interior section that was armored/airtight that served as the 'tactical bridge'....but then we're getting into my biggest complaint about Enterprise, which is why the fuck everyone walked around in jumpsuits in a ship that had no shields or interior force fields.....

What, like Kato in the first series of Space:1999, when he had to use the keyboard on the far wall to operate "computer"? They eventually let him sit at the big table with the grown-ups, but he still had the worst job on the Moon, telling Commander Koenig "Computer says no.".
While he was being Uhura up in the background, I did notice how fine his arse was, though.

Hi there.

How closely are Romulans and Vulcans related? by EMH MARK 2 - Fri, 04 Jul 2014 19:52:54 EST ID:XNLHj2j2 No.45258 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I feel like they were very inconsitent with this over the years. On the one hand the Vulcans and Romulans have a physical difference (sometimes) in terms of the forehead veins which would take hundreds of thousands of years to evolve. On the other hand there's an episode of TOS where Spock knows what the Romulan commander's name means which would make them more closely related than Germans and French on Earth.

Vulcans are stated in TNG to have very strong emotions which is why they need logic to repress/control them. Romulans obviously don't have the same problem, they're dicks but they aren't savage murderous rapist arsonist dicks.

Vulcans are telepaths. Romulans arent I don't think? In TNG they have a special computer that they use to read peoples' minds. They wouldn't need that if they could just mind-meld.

Also there's the episode where they have a Romulan who needs a blood transfusion and none of the Vulcans are compatible but Worf (a klingon) is.

If the distance is so great that they're different species then Spock's idea of reunification makes no fucking sense at all. It would be like humans and chimps deciding to work together because we have a common ancestor.

Gonna have to play the prove it card on this one. I've never seen a Vulcan with the headbones. That was specifically made to differentiate Romulans post-TOS wasn't it?

the atheist caveman vulcans from that one episode had headbones, so clearly romulans are just underevolved vulcangs

nope, she was headbone free when disguised as a vulcan, then when she reveals herself as a romulan shes got the ridges again.

Wait, I thought she was pretending to be a Romulan and then exposed herself as a Vulcan.
