Ok so I just had a big argument with my boyfriend about this and our relationship is now over. I know for certain that there was an early episode of DS9 where Garak was infected with some kind of behavior changing virus, or possessed by a pah wraith or whatever and he took Jake and Nog hostage on a runabout and was forcing them to sing "Row Row Row Your Boat" over and over again while threatening to crash into the sun or something like that. I also think Quark might have been there but Garak knocked him out.

He was basically gaslighting me, trying to make me think I was crazy and I just imagined this scene but I know for a fact that it happened because I remember watching the episode with my dad when I was a kid. We did a binge rewatch of ds9 over christmas and new year and never saw it but I wouldn't put it past him to deliberately skip the episode just to fuck with me. What episode was it?

lol, reminds me of Demolitian Man (with Stallone) where they don't do physical sex because it's gross. Instead they just artificially inseminate, and use some sort of headstrap thing to stimulate the brain and make it experience the pleasure part.

IIRC it was pretty funny seeing Stallone trying to explain to an adult woman how and why having sex was nice.

If they made it into the Federation, then they would have made huge progress passed the point of getting easily offended. It'll be extremely difficult for conservative moral guardian or faux-"progressive" moral guardian to stir up a moral panic by then.

>Like, what if tellarites pass a fluid back and forth, but it returns to the male, (or female), thus making our "one-way" exchange seem "gross".
Porn in the Federation would be interesting and full of variety.

Man that was the first Enterprise episode I ever saw, randomly came across it on TV.

Thought the pebble thing was really stupid, I switched off before the pregnant part.
Overall it gave me a bad impression of Enterprise, it just looked really cheap and campy. Kinda like Stargate, except without the charm and laid-back attitude.

That is too bad. I actually really liked the 'shit is so different on an alien ship' aspect to the episode. I agree with you that it felt wonky, but I really liked that they tried to express the difference/difficulty of early interspecies meetings.


I would also suggest you check out at least half of season 3 before you give up on ENT completely.

The name changes everyday, which is like sleep interrupting consciousness.

The time when we get a new host is when our IDs are changed after a local electrical outage. How long each of us can keep a host is based on how well the local power generation can maintain a continuous supply of electricity.

My favorite episode of TNG is when Picard lives an entire lifetime on another planet that is slowly losing it's atmosphere, he has a wife, a child and learns to play the flute.

When everyone dies he wakes up visibly shaken and it's explained that the aliens created that device so that other life forms could remember them.


In the closing scenes he's playing the flute and looking solemnly into space.


Between shit like that and being turned into a Borg I think it goes without question that Picard is the single greatest commander the franchise has ever known.

To be fair, Sisko cheated, at least on one occasion what with the wormhole aliens demolishing that Dominion fleet. On multiple occasions Picard was only able to get out of danger through pure diplomatic ability.

I've said before that movie Kirk is James Bond, albeit a realistic, boring Bond. His accomplishments in the movies were rather lackluster from a typical Trek viewpoint, but as a cleanup guy who fixes the Federation's more unpalatable fuckups (Genesis, the Kitamer assassination plot), he did as much as Picard did to prevent war.

I saw TAS only for M'ress. I was dissapointed but the show was good eitherway.

Lets talk about TAS, or M'ress or what will you like a new Trek cartoon to be like.

Pic is a gif I made, I could make a cinemagraph of M'ress waving the tale but that'll require me to cut and paste the animation out of other twenty frames.

I don't want to split cathairs over this. But to me, it seems pretty clear the character was intended to have at least some level of sex appeal. This argument is supported by her being voiced by Majel, and her not looking like Arex or that tentacle-alien they had in one of those episodes. Or all the other alien aliens.

And this IS Gene Roddenberry we're talking about, here. He also wanted Deana Troi to have four titties, you know?

I see you haven't been around many engineers, let me enlighten you. Most I've met have had some combination of substance abuse issues, interpersonal deficiencies (ranging from rudeness to failing to read social cues and even outright autism).

Cochrane strikes me as a wartime engineer, a man who probably had to work on these missiles and had a deep understanding of the physics behind their operation, as well as the practical know-how of designing and building them. To my mind, his warp engine is probably just an extension of the fusion explosive warhead in the missile, regulated to release it's energy in a field which warps through subspace.

He wasn't an eminent academic, he was an engineer with an idea, driven, motivated, but ill tempered and antisocial.

My argument would have agreed with the socially deaf aspect.
However more to the point about the rednecks is that a lot of rednecks are capable and socially adept engineers. When I was enlisted on a submarine, the nukes were to be made fun of for being awkward nerds; but the machinist nukes and a few chemists were usually hardcore barfighting, yeehaw party animals who hung out with the A Gang (the diesel guys) who were just as rough and rowdy.
