if the dude was in THERAPY about it, its hard to see him as the bad guy, he's not revelling in it like Savill and Harris, he's trying to find a way to quash his urges.

the fact that he has done it since he was 12 suggests its not paedophilia anyway, hell, it sounds more like a joke tourettes tic

That Washington Post article does a poor job of conveying what the therapy was for. The TMZ article is more specific and says he was in therapy for his urges after confessing it to his wife. Her lawyer told her that it would be legal for her to record him admitting to a felony in California. Had it been the therapist's recording then It would have been covered by confidentiality.

She may be being a bit ruthless with this in regards to the divorce. He'd likely be JUST as ruthless if she had dirty laundry to air. But if he's been doing this since he was 12 then there's 50 years of victims left in his wake. It's admirable that he was seeking help, but he still traumatized young girls for life and he should be punished for that and is STILL A BAD PERSON for doing what he did. Too little, too late.

novel-verse has the RSE split not long after Nem
the RSE ran by a succession of TNG and DS9 romulan charas
and the Fed+KE allied Imperial Romulan State, lead by Donatra

STO has that in backstory, and the Rom storyline is about D'tan (the little kid that hung out with the reunificationists) leading the creation of a Romulan Republic... that flys swarms of Scimitars and puts a Reman terrorist who keeps stealing Thaleron Weapons more or less in charge of the Military

Any new series should be as different to TNG as that series was to TOS. It needs to double down on the moral superiority just as TNG did to TOS.

The TV series Fargo proved to me that this dream is possible and the writers exist out there to do it right. I'll just wait for the hollywood stars to align in the meantime.

If we're going to analogize this to medieval history might I suggest a tweak to your ideas in this way: The Federation is already kind of a HRE entity and it's already sandwiched between east and west of the galaxy. The Romulan empire represents the crumbled Byzantine Empire and the Klingons the Ottomans Empire. Borg as Great Britain and Dominion as France. The intergalactic politics almost write themselves.

I'll switch those two. France actively convert Breton, Norman, Aquitaine, etc. cultures into French culture, while Britain keep more of the Scottish, Irish, Welsh, etc. cultures around.

Hello Bajor...ugh sanctimonious pricks.

My rationale for the Borg and Dominion roles was the fact that the Borg have the fastest and strongest ships in the galaxy. Meaning you couldn't really touch them on their home turf unless you were from the future. Though one could easily throw out the idea of Britain altogether and give the Borg a medieval Russia flavor. I also like the Dominion as France because it leaves open the possibility of a French Revolution of sorts to take place there.

GB (especially at the height of the empire) fits better for the Dominion
secretive figureheads invoked to inspire loyalty
middle management that actually runs the show with a very varied track record
well trained native military with colonial units mostly remaining distinct
tendency to slip into native cultural standpoints

France is a better fit for the Borg
Republican/rule by decision of the many
military absorbs others into mixed units instead of distinct forces
total cultural domination of territories
breakaway territories break away absolutely

Alright /1701/, let's say you can erase one episode or movie from Star Trek.. but there's a catch. You also have to save one special effect, scene or plot element. Once this thread is completed, we'll combine all the okay bits of shit episodes into a single narrative and that will be the pilot for the Next-Next Generation starring Captain Nog, Commander Naomi Wildman, Data's Retarded Brother, the first Exocomp admitted to Star Fleet, Chief Engineer 010100010000100001-EXOCOMP112, and as a random recurring Space Wizard, Wesley Crusher, master of DMT, Peyote and freebasing Trilithium.

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?

The ship often has visitors. It makes sense for there to be a standard entrance and exit place. The pad and/or room gets used as containment for hostile visitors and biohazards also. It would be annoying and dangerous if people were always just dematerializing and materializing in arbitrary places, not to mention jarring to the audience.

As for O'Brien, I'm sure he handles a lot of transports that aren't pertinent to the story in addition to running level 1 diagnostics and such.

A starfleet professor and chief transporter officer on 13 miranda class ships was teaching a class on Transporters

”Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship the transporter and accept that it truly is the safest way to travel!”

At this moment, a brave, patriotic, pro-life Reginald Barclay who had served 1500 tours of duty and understood the necessity of physical travel stood up.

”So is the person coming out of the transporter the same one that was beamed, or a duplicate?”

The arrogant professor smirked quite Jewishly and smugly replied “of course its the same, you ponce”

”Wrong. If the person that came out was the same, then Thomas Riker should not exist”

The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of Transporters Today. He stormed out of the room crying those Transportfag tears.

The Cadets applauded and all accepted Type-8 shuttlecraft as their lord and savior. An eagle named “Galleio” flew into the room and perched atop the starfleet Flag and shed a tear on the chalk. The pledge of allegiance was read several times, and God himself showed up and enacted a flat tax rate across the country.

whenever trek or gate says 'dematirailsiation' i take it to mean that they are pushed from 3d space into (n-to-n+2)D space, that the do not exist at material entities while they exist, fully formed in subspace as they are projected to their target

pattern degradation is your body loosing coherence in subspace

Tuvix (and that meatbag on ENT that got filled with leaves) was them merging in something aproximating mosaic chimeraism

Tom was product of a lensing effect the storm had on him in transit, subspace energy replacing any that was lost in the split

all the rest of the crap terminology was a result of trying to explain what was happening to executives who put what they thought it meant down

I think the default Spock style for all Vulcans is more of a retcon. T'pringle and T'pau had hair styles in TOS, so it seems that was just how Spock did his hair. TNG then took Spock as a template and just put a basin head wig on Vulcan actors.

Movie Kirk is basically a jaded and sort of manic-depressive James Bond who uses an obsession with being a space captain as cover for being a Federation spy operative whose ongoing mission is cleaning up Federation mistakes.

He isn't just a bureaucrat, he is a bureaucrat who saves the earth in the process of dealing with his bosses dirty laundry. VI is the best example of this.

>Spock is basically a baby in IV-VI with all the memories of Spock that dies in WoK.

I've always wondered what the official stance (if there is one) about katra's is. If it's basically just a memory transfer then original Spock is dead, period. Spock from 3-6 is essentially a copy and nothing else. He remembers saying "The ship, out of danger?" though which happened after he melded with bones. Though I suppose Bones could have picked up post meld memories telepathically.

I remember in DS9 Bashir once compared something to a "Vulcan engrammatic transfer" which would suggest the same concept. I forget the episode though.

Is the canon on this metaphysical though, or it's just a copy?

Canon so far has been consistent with the idea that it is metaphysical. The transference of the katra was first seen in the original series (Return to Tomorrow) and DS9 referenced it as a transference of synaptic patterns. Not just a copy.

It's likely Kirk has never told Spock the true extent to which the Federation has been steering him into these situations, and his frustration in the scene would be that Kirk thought he was going to make it into retirement without having to deal with another 'situation'. It add an element to the driving focus then behind Starfleet's peace efforts centering around Spock's negotiations with Gorkon. The reason for Starfleet top brass to be in covert support of the Klingon brass coup against him is that buy using Spock, Kirk's friend, and having the assassin's use the Enterprise as their beam-off point, they had the ability to coax the crippled Klingon Empire into spending itself into a pile of ash.

VI becomes a subtle political spy drama if you view it that way. A perfect storm of political watershed moments converge, laying the landscape for battle: If the federation military brass can play its cards right, they can assist a rogue group of Klingons made up of the upper echelons of Klingons top strategists and members of military government directly beneath the ruling family take control of the military. They then go to war, fighting to the death and coaxing the entire empire to throw their resources at the Federation.

A group of people who want to wage all-out war on the Federation, regardless if their main war machine resource exploded right in their face, dooming the next generation of Klingons to a dead planet for a war to fight today. This is excellent for the Federation, because it means that within 50 years, the Klingon empire falls apart. They will be forced to evacuate whoever they can off Kronos. Their military ships will have to be used to confiscate whatever freighters are handy to get the people off the dying planet. With only colony worlds, and no stable pool to pull soldiers for the military, it will rot as it ages.

The Federation will be able to position itself to take over vast swaths of a deserted Klingon Empire, while watching the Klingon Empire crumble around itself.

But Kirk, secret villain to the principles of the Federation as a secretive (maybe section 34?!?!) operative tasked to secure Federation interests in t…

The bridge is the living room.

The viewscreen is the tele.

Nontraditional family structure

Sit around and watch tele

Mom and dad are kinda split up.

Grandpa is the patriarch.

Sometimes we go places, but usually just watch the viewscreen.
