GUINAN'S HEADCANON GENERAL by Guinan - Thu, 12 Jan 2017 00:45:40 EST ID:RHNGWoY0 No.57642 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hi there. This is Guinan. I spend a lot of time listening to people talk about all kinds of shit, and also I make some pretty great drinks. But today, and hopefully every day until I get sick of it, I'm going to do something else.

First off, I'd like to explain. When I think about what really makes this place special is that the way memes blossom is in headcanons. I've been listening and over my years here I've heard some interesting headcanon, I'd like to share some. For many, these headcanon(s) will be familiar, mostly

For those who have not yet trekk'd all of the Star trek there is to Trek beware, for spoilers abound:

1In Star Trek Generations, Picard enters the Nexus. We are made to think that he leaves, but as I imply in my (Guinan's) dialog in the movie, no one really leaves the Nexus.. that is of course how I get (at least some) of my temporal powers which helped in episodes such as Yesterday's Enterprise. The truth is that any thought of leaving the Nexus could lead to a complex hallucinatory fantasy of leaving it, only coming to realize it was all an illusion.

Therefore all the TNG movies are hallucinations in the edge of reality in the planes of existence where man becomes Q and action picard was just jean luc's way of coping with the death of his family line now that his brother and nephew were dead and he was without child

2Unless Wesley was actually Picard's bastard child and he 'accidentally' put Beverly's be-stallion'd husband into harm's way to get rid of him

3Also in regards to the Nexus, someone in another thread once revealed to me the most glorious of truths, that Kirk's exploits against 'God' in Star Trek V at the center of the galaxy were actually a nexus fantasy

4Whenever there's a captain's log entry that's only a voiceover while the ship flies past the camera, the captain is actually taking a shit, that's why they changed it from the more formal 'blog' that had been used for several centuries to the archaic word-form 'log', as an immature joke allowed due to its history in earthen naval tradition

It's my head canon that in ENT, Shran doesn't know black people are human. After all, there are no black Andorians, and I don't recall seeing a black Vulcan in ENT, or any other black Vulcan than Tuvok. But Shran calls humans "pinkskins", which seems to indicate that he does not think Mayweather is human. So what does he think? That black people are a client species of mankind? If we take that and run with it, maybe Shran's misunderstanding is partly responsible for the founding of the Federation, because internally he reasoned that mankind had already integrated one species, so maybe they weren't full of shit about peace and tolerance, like the Vulcans.

I predict it would end in a showdown between Rick and Q that would tear the galaxy in twain. In the end Rick would use some device to blow up the universe and be left floating alone in the empty space that was left of everything burping about how he won, then Q would poof out of nowhere, start rebuilding the galaxy, and they would both laugh and go in for the most epic brograb ever to behold by beings both sentient and omnipotent.

Also they would go way back in time and make Archer fat.

So, Star Trek '09 is mediocre, and Into Darkness is terrible. But I actually quite liked Beyond.

And I have never waifu'd as hard as I do for Jaylah. Holy shit. I felt like a teenage girl in a crush in the theater, and I've watched the movie twice since then and not felt any different.

Here's a teaser trailer for TNG. It looks like anything Trek related is from the movies (lot of Wrath of Khan).

Here's a famous teaser trailer for 1978 Superman:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhfPidk4DvA

Teaser trailers almost by definition eschew showing anything real or of substance from the finished product because they're often made and shown well in advance of any real work being done ON the finished product. That's why it's a "teaser" trailer and not simply a trailer.

There was an even more insubstantial one before the ship one, that just showed nebulae and shit.
While sure this trailer isn't entirely out of the genre of what is acceptable for a teaser, the bigger picture gripe is that all that they have to show for a show they have ostensibly been working on for almost a year is yet ANOTHER insubstantial teaser trailer.

I'm generally not too fond of ENT, but I found myself thinking about Rogue Planet after watching the SFDebris review. I actually rather likes the episode, for ENT's standards. First off, I don't think a lot of the complaints about it in the review stick. Sure, the planet looks kind of vanilla for the premise, but Star Trek was never about that sort of thing. The vast majority of planets we see have breathable atmosphere and are generally Earthlike. In that, the Rogue Planet is actually an interesting departure, and I do think the element of night works, visually. I also like the wonky visors, because they fit into ENT's theme of the crew using more down to Earth means to do their thing. Of course, Archer acts like an idiot. But he always does. I didn't find his behaviour to be any weirder, and it's kind of explained away by the nature of what's happening. I can accept that.

But the core theme of Rogue Planet seem very "Trek" to me. There are no real bad guys, because the hunters are well-rounded characters who have a set of sensible values. SFDebris mentions that it's kind of weird that "hunting went out of style on Earth 100 years ago" in ENT's universe, but there's a simple explanation: ENT is trying to be TNG and got its timeframe wrong. However, at the same time the statement is ambiguous. Hunting already *has* gone out of style. My grandfather used to hunt big game in the jungles of Indonesia, but stopped when he noticed that the animals were disappearing. Now, they are all gone, and so are the jungles. It's not longer feasible to hunt in the style of those hunters in Rogue Planet on Earth *today*, except for a privileged few. Presumably that's the state the Eska (the hunters) are in, except they go to the rogue planet instead of Africa. Most hunters in our society shoot species like deer or boars, who are in abudance due to the lack of apex predators predating them. Now, ENT puts this point where we collectively stop hunting slightly more than 30 years from now. That's a bit risky, but Trek also has an alternative timeline compared to us. By this time they've had two more world wars than we've had, and Asia has been ruled b…

This!
Lwaxana is a lot deeper than her frivolous facade, but the frivolous facade is, when taken with the knowledge that it is somewhat of a facade, all the more entertaining. That's not to say that she isn't legitimately frivolous, but it adds a certain dimension of detachment from life until shit hits the fan. You know, like she exercises more discretion and flexibility with her personality than anyone else in star trek, who pretty much act the same way all the time.

I also like how she directly violates all of the stereotypes you would expect from a show's resident telepath.

I would add though, that she initially wasn't written like this and I think the show's writers changed the character without actually changing anything.

It's actually a pretty clever/economical bit of writing when you think about it. They made her actions in later episodes not only show more depth and humanity on her part but they also cast her previous actions in a different light, changing the way we thought about them. As opposed to just retconning or contradicting previous things.

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?

I always preferred the Q being beyond my understanding. But Irumodic syndrome? However the fuck it's spelled is something that never even affected Picard that badly during all the best things anyway. I mean everything people attribute to it was real so you might be right, or in the very least it never actually gets bad enough to stop Picard doing what Picard does. It being a complete ruse never crossed my mind but there's no reason that couldn't be true and it doesn't even undermine or mangle the existing narrative so it's a really good bit of headcanon.

>So also part of what Picard hates about Q is a taste of his own medicine
I don't understand this. Picard hates violating the prime directive and interfering in the development of inferior cultures, whereas Q doesn't seem to mind. A Picard-Q probably wouldn't even be known to the non-Q and he certainly wouldn't play games with people even if it were for those peoples' benefits. Dishonesty, or at the very least mystery, isn't his style. Unless what you're trying to say is that a black and white rule like the prime directive and human morality are something that would eventually have to be abandoned or transcended, and that Picard did a very very good job with the narrow constraints of his existence but outside of that context his beliefs become meaningless. However, if that is the case, then why is Picard of special interest to the Q as opposed to others?

My headcanon is that Picard actually is a part of the Q continuum already and he invented the entire star trek storyline for some reason. The Q that he encounters is either actually him or a Q friend or perhaps both, because Qs probably have a weird concept of identity.

I'm more saying that as advanced as the UFP are over a pre-warp civilization (or more likely over an amoeba), so are the Q more advanced than the UFP, and thus the UFP finds itself in the rare situation of being the one from whom advanced capabilities and knowledge are withheld. And I'm merely suggesting that this awareness is disquieting to Picard because it calls into question humanity's independence, what it is evolving into, and how little we know of the true nature of the universe. I think Q is focused on Picard in particular only because he both sees him as an 'everyman' (he has all the qualities of humanity bundled up in appropriate proportion) and also as someone always on the leading edge of Starfleet's probes deeper into space, he's an exemplar of the problem Q sees with humanity -- that we're moving too fast for our own good and doing so with blinders on. It also probably just means he has more opportunities to bump into him and get him in nasty situations.

This morning I had a dream that was basically sort of a sequel to Threshold, but without Paris having sex with Janeway and giving birth to their children as lizards.

Basically Paris tries to go transwarp again in a shuttlecraft but instead of slowing transforming into a horny lizard he ends up just... floating in space. Torres then rescues him but this Torres is from a universe where everyone is a weeaboo so her shuttlecraft is full of weeaboo shit and is bright pink and has a lot of Sega arcade games in it. She tells Paris to pass time by playing some of them and she says that the only way to go back to his own world is by doing another transwarp, which can only be done while he is playing Hatsune Miku Project Diva. So they manage to do that but somehow they end up in Disney's 1993 hit movie Homeward Bound with Torres as the cat and Paris as the pitbull.

They go through the movie as usual and when they get to the family they run into Janeway who is the golden retriever and for some reason Picard is also there as a bird. The dream ended there. I'm pretty sure pitbull!Paris tried to impregnate cat!Torres.

Should the new Star Trek series of movies ever explore the mirror universe? This has hardly been touched on. There was the one TOS ep, Enterprise, but this is not enough. I want more of the Terran Empire. I want to know what happened to the empire after a long time. What is it like in the Voyager timeline? Has a terran ship ever been transported to the delta quadrant by the Caretaker?

But... the entire point of DS9's MU episodes is to provide commentary on the original in the same way DS9 provides commentary on TNG. Humanity embraced being nice, and as a consequence got steamrolled by everyone else in the universe who was still evil. Which is exactly why the entire MU in DS9 is so different from the main universe.

And while I do love ENT's MU episode, DS9 had continuity between its MU episodes and used them to provide the typical shades of grey commentary that DS9 does so well. ENT's was fun, but that was it.

In this scene a Dabo girl and Garak sing "Happy Birthday To You" in its entirety to Julian. From what I understand, the song was still under copyright then.

Did Paramount have to pay royalties to Warner-music for the use of this song in this episode? Or did this one slip by EVERYONE involved?

It was. There was a lawsuit that proved its copyright was fraudulent and Warner had to pay back its fees its collected. It's public domain now.

Right but Paramount / Star Trek has avoided using Happy Birthday before. In my googling for this very post the ONLY OTHER trek/birthday reference was to the TNG S7E11 episode Parallels where Worf was skipping through dimensions.

http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Parallels_(episode)

In it they wanted to use klingon translations of the song but to the tune but switched it to For He's A Jolly Good Fellow.

Also, For He's A Jolly Good Fellow was used as the birthday song in another DS9 episode.... i'll find it later.

I think For He's a Jolly Good Fellow is a much better song to be serenaded by than Happy Birthday and I'm happy Trek used censorship to its artistic advantage in this case.

It's a common saying between all alpha quadrant people. But what the fuck is a Regalian Ox and just what does it look like? More importantly, how long lived is it that it's known quadrant wide as a healthy animal?

What kind of despicable melanoid slime Wesley asks questions like that?

I guess they're like Oxen on earth but from Rigel and you can be "strong as a ox" usually meaning healthy as well. And given we listen to everything translated into hue mon then it'd be the human name. So most of the time unless it's really catchy like "Targ" they're just going to compare it to something we know already.

I love that Jeffrey Coombs is the biggest category.

Also we need a "best captains who are not the captain" so Maxwell, Jellico, Solok (baseball xenophobe Vulcan guy) that sort of thing.

We've avoided the obvious one and I think skirting round it as closely as possible is a very necessary option.
