So I've been binging the fucking shit out of Strak Trak Enterprise and it's actually really fucking good. It's almost DS9 levels of brutal in terms of the moral choices and Jonathan Archer having to deal with the fallout of his fuckery is a great "pre-federation" back story.

I think the writers liking jazz and forcing it on characters was a recurring theme. Where are starfleet officers who write ambient electronica or rock music? Or does the former not exist because advanced computing caused the genre to accelerate until it burned itself out? Does the happier society mean all rock music would sound like coldplay? If that's the case I understand why the Romulans tried to kill us.

I think they wanted to make him, like, relatable, like a red blooded American sports-fan, but needed him to be an intellectual that doesn't spill beer on himself.

Like, gridiron would have made him seem like a thug
They already did baseball
He would have seemed like a wiener if he liked tennis.
Golf would've made him seem too much like a bourgie
Football would have worked but all the Americans would have gone burrhurrhurr

So I think they just went fuck it and picked water-polo.

Ah, well we all have our roles in this world, dear Guinan - some of us tend to the thirsty, while others make those little figurines that Picard likes to get with his tea sometimes. Though this window of perspective does raise a few questions, I am grateful that you ultimately found a more... constructive outlet for such impulses.

Crowdfunded sci fi show that is to include
>Robert Picardo
>Doug Jones
>Mira Furlan (B5)
>Bruce Boxleitner (B5)
>Bill Mumy (B5)
>Michael Harney (OITNB)
And quite a few more interesting cast members.
Space Command is the story of Captain Jack Kemmer and his stalwart crew aboard a starship vessel called The Paladin. In the first installment, Space Command: Redemption, Captain Kemmer rescues ex-archeologist Vonn O'Dara high above Mars, setting into motion a revolution that changes galactic history.

Sorry, not trying to shill super hard, I just stumbled across this and thought this could be pretty cool, and figured some of y'all might also.

I'll check it out. Sadly, if it has been released in the US, UK, IRE, Aus, or NZ since, idk, the late 70's to early 80's I've pretty much seen it all as far as sci-fi and pseudo-sci-fi goes. I work a lot, generally about 65-70 hours a week every week with a half day off thrown in here and there and I work odd hours so I am mostly home late at night without much else to do and have watched pretty much everything out there at the moment to the point where I've got what few new shows pass for sci-fi these days to watch as they air and then its just rewatching shows I've seen multiple times.

Just recently finished rewatches of Trek, Bab5, Space A&B, Farscape, Stargate, Andromeda, and Sliders. I think I'm going for a Space Precinct rewatch next.

Yeah, I've seen the show, movie, and the fan edit(which is pretty good) pretty much anything that has came out in the US, UK, NZ, or Aus since the 90's I've seen and most everything between the mid-late 70's to early 80's as well so I'm always on the lookout for something new. When you work 70 hours a week 6 1/2-7 days a week and are only off is the wee hours there isn't much else to do but watch TV and I've always been a huge sci-fi fan. I tend to draw the line at the original V/TOS era because earlier than that and its just too dated for me for the most part though there are a few exceptions.

Currently trying to get hold of and watch all of the trek fan stuff but its proving to be difficult to locate all of them now.

It's possible. I wont' put money in but I'll definitely check it out.

There's something similar that came out recently that was pretty objectively terrible (though I quite enjoy it) and has a very similarly awesome cast just from different shows. I recommend checking it out if not just to see this really weird spectacle and be amazed at how this could have possibly been accomplished. It's called Nobility and it came out last year I think.

It stars:
Cas Anvar (The Expanse)
Doug Jones
Walter Koenig
Torri Higginson (Stargate Atlantis)
Christopher Judge (SG-1)

And a bunch of no names. It's only 3 episodes I think. I stumbled across it because it was recommended on Amazon Prime.

Alright so I'm always too intoxicated on something to really remember specific episodes of Trek, so this thread is for people like me. What are your favorite seasons of whatever Star Trek?

I don't actually remember any specific seasons either, but when DS9 got rolling, it became my favorite trek. Quark's escapades, Morn's clever wit, every second with Garak or Dukat, Bajoran racism, the holodeck, there's just so much to see.

I remember that TNG was really cozy once it got going. The self-contained episode format was easy to digest and satisfying, since each episode would have a complete little arc (besides 2-parters and shit). VOY kind of sucked a lot, but had some gems, and ENT ended right after I finally started caring about it. TOS and TAS were really great too, but fuck, try and remember some seasons that you like. Succeed where I have failed.

I never thought poorly of them, but you're absolutely right. Plus, thanks to the serialization of the show, they feel more integral. It's fun to watch the humble beginnings of these eventual war heroes. Even the baseball introduced in that silly episode goes on to become a powerful symbol during the war.

I have a hard time picking between seasons 5 and 6 as the best of DS9.

I think the thing to remember is that most good writers and we're assuming that this is deliberate and so they're good won't just rip off a single concept. A lot of writers trying to explore an idea will research similar fictional and real examples to get an idea of how it works/plays out so they can write something more realistic or at least that complies with how people think it works. They probably had to make a mercantile race and so they went and researched a bunch of famous trading organisations and nations and skimmed bits until they had unique but still familiar society. The "Yankee trader" thing was chosen as the most familiar point of reference but I think this thread makes it clear they took ideas from at least one other group.

I decided to look into the facts and see if there's more parallels. The UK woman's suffrage movement came about during the later half of the victorian era pretty much kicking off seriously as the east india company stopped trading actually, it ticked over before that. Maybe this is an intentional parallel or maybe not. Actual suffrage only occurred after men went to die in a big muddy hole for basically nothing and someone had to keep the lights on back home, after they stepped up and proved they could do it it was much harder to deny them a vote. However at that point there'd been a lot of campaigning. I feel like these are inevitable coincidences rather than deliberate. If this happens, this would happen around then and this follows. Of course Ishka could also be a reference to Lily Maxwell (who got to vote due to an accident in admin) and that would make Rom the Ferengi John Stuart Mill. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stuart_Mill

At first I thought this was a reach but if it's a coincidence it's bloody huge one. Mills advocated collective bargaining (through workers electing a representative), considering the environmental cost of his actions, women voting and was a utilitarian. When I studied economics I know about him being a utilitarian but I didn't realise that was he was a polymath genius and all around decent guy. Still sitting moderately left of centre in the modern world. Anyway, Rom formed a union, vo…

I guess the point of comparison would be how everyone else viewed the IRL ferengi with regard to women. Even though I view it as a natural part of their hierarchical society that they treated everybody like slaves, the fact that this included women nearly categorically, and all the invaders--being "businessmen"--would have been male, is something that would have stuck out to people.

Colonials liked to justify their shit by projecting it on the rest of the world, like the idea that the planet is in a perpetual state of war (fuck u just btw immanuel kant) which is convenient since it justifies literally anything and is still the basis of Western foreign policy, or that patriarchal structures are both natural (despite it being more a reflection of a war economy) and primitive (which they even bake into their origin myths), and must therefore apply to everyone. But I can completely imagine foreigners being all "holy shit these niggas are fancy barbarians" the whole time and it being completely lost on the Europeans.

No doubt. One thing the Ferengi are is sort of an anti-Federation that is used to reflect on our own history of Gentile Barbarism. They only work as a literary device when the viewer is sitting where they are, somewhere between Federation and Ferengi on the socio-political plane graph doo-hickey.

I'll be honest though, I need to rewatch DS9 to really get more info on them. That is where all the canon really got made.

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.

I think we should remember that those boldest first journeymen would have been discovering things which rocked the entire Earth. That those things which they discovered would be televised for them as they were for us.

And the Starfleet of Picard, Sisko and beyond, like the rest of mankind, were by necessity shaped by those first forays.

What did Earth feel when on Stardate 3468.1, Starfleet discovered Olympus and met Apollo?

The Goa'uld beg to differ!

I suppose I would have to add the proviso you'd need to be sophisticated enough to conceive aliens and ideally have met other aliens.

If your civilisation is sophisticated enough to have captain Mcguyver then you're not falling for the Ardra's scam.

And if you do than a passing alium will quickly reveal the BS it is. As Ardra learned. But the fact we can even write tv like that shows we'd be less susceptable.

Are you sure it's all us, though?
For all we know the backlot was on Mars, or fucking Epsilon Digit X, and someone just mailed the tapes in to Paramount.

Although in retrospect, I guess the distinction is irrelevant. We have assimilated.

The number 23 seems to come up quite a lot in Trek... from starbase 23 to things being 23 light years away, it seems to have some sort of Q-tier influence over reality.

So.. what episode 23 is your favorite? Which is the worst? Here's the options:

>TOS: A Taste of Armageddon
>TOS: The Omega Glory
>TOS: All Our Yesterdays
>TNG: Skin of Evil
>TNG: Sarek
>TNG: The Host
>TNG: I, Borg
>TNG: Rightful Heir
>TNG: Emergence
>DS9: Crossover
>DS9: Family Business

You're thinking of "Best of Both Worlds" not "I, Borg."
Fun fact about that episode -- it's a season ender cliffhanger, and the lead writer for part 1 was afraid he would be fired between seasons so he intentionally created a completely outlandish, impossibly difficult predicament with no idea of how to fix it so that the producers would have no choice but to bring him back to resolve his own mess. Maybe the solution is so cheese because it was literally the only way he could see out of it?

there are a load of numbers in every single episode, try doing the same amount of research on any other number
