Aloha 1701.

Wondering about commentary tracks available for TOS or TNG or the TOS films.

Surprisingly there doesn't seem to be much official online that I can find, and what is available seems to be podcasts which vary in quality.

Any you would suggest? Directions for research? Thanks.

We've all had this discussion before, it's part of being a Trek fan, but I'm curious what my fellow viewers and assorted Taimafolk have to say right now.

>CO) Captain Jean-Luc Picard
  • Why? He's the epitome of the wise leader. Diplomat at his best, warrior when required. His family line meant everything to him but he willingly sacrificed his chances for romance and children in order to stay in the captain's chair. I admired Janeway's mama bear drive to drag her crew home on her back, I loved Sisko's more forceful way of leading, but it still goes to Picard.

>XO) Commander William Riker
  • This was a hard one, because Riker and Kira were both very interesting characters who capably saved the day when their COs were otherwise engaged. But the simple fact that Riker was Picard's understudy makes him the winner.

>Chief Engineer) Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker III
  • I like O'Brien a lot, Geordie had his moment, but Trip was in a lot of ways the heart and soul of Enterprise. His character was so well done Television Without Pity named their award for "best character in an otherwise bad show" the Trip Tucker Award.

>Chief Medical Officer) Doctor Phlox
  • This was a tough one, as I LOVED the EMH and I enjoyed Bashir, but Phlox's role as the outsider on humanity's first warp 5 vessel was well done. He had his very silly moments, yes, but those weren't all we saw of him. He knew when it was go time and he could be a consummate professional. Compare Billingsley's acting as Phlox against Philips' acting as Neelix. Both cheerful outsider characters, but Phillips never knew when to show Neelix's competent and darker side, which to him simply becoming a joke. I also enjoyed how, when Archer was struggling with an ethical dilemma, he often sought advice from Phlox.

>Chief Science Officer) Jadzia Dax

In an alternate reality, in 'Encounter at Farpoint' right after Q goes on about how 'your current predicament will be challenging enough' and they return the Enterprise is whisked away by a displacement wave and lands at the Caretaker array in the Delta quad. Or maybe instead the journey to farpoint is about testing the Traveler's warp field experiment and they get stuck in the DQ like they almost got stuck in triangulum/the end of the universe.

However you want to think about it, TNG and the Enterprise-D crew's adventures become about crossing the Delta Quadrant, which we will assume contains all the same stuff more or less. Beyond the general ribbing we can get about how much better this show would be than Voyager in general, let's just imagine what it would be like, what characteristics from TNG would have to cross over, etc.

>>Q would still introduce them to the Borg, but more like 'hey idiots this thing is like right over there ready to kill you'
>>Maybe they would pick up Guinan near the El-Aurian homeworld instead of as a distant refugee?
>>.......would there still be Neelix?
>>Klingon couldn't have his redemption arc, and a lot of character's arcs would be effective (the Lore/Soong arc as well)
How would individual characters mature differently dealing with Kazon/Borg/Hirogen shenanigans instead?

Would Picard and Ensign Ro have fucked as giant salamanders? Would Geordi have gotten the ship frozen in time and have to resurrect everyone using Data's severed, frozen head? These are questions the people need answered!

Isn't there a distant worlds mod that adds in Trek stuff? But games like that can be made. Indie devs love 4x games. Last Federation, Distant Worlds, Aurora, the various masters of orion spinoffs, etc. So, there is still a chance for a Trek game. They would just need to be made by these smaller dev teams out of passion. Not sure what the licensing would cost. Would that be steep as fuck now that Trek made a comeback in recent years or cheaper? Because I've seen a lot of shit and borderline shovelware made so I can't imagine it's terribly difficult to get a hold of.

Apparently there's a fan made stellaris mod though I've not tried it. Stellaris would make it work with a few re skinnings and reflavours. Might work better when the next update drops and final goals like transcending flesh or becoming robots are added, and building dyson sphere and ring worlds.

You'd just need to start with a pre set game in motion I guess.

Yeah, I agree Stellaris vanilla is pretty close to approximating Star Trek as a whole. Especially the mid-game where you have your solidified large and medium powers all fucking with each other. One of the cooler things I've seen them adding is a Hive Mind ethic that gives unique government type and seem like an entirely different play style. I also haven't tried the Trek mods, but give it another year or two and there will be some super robust one, I am sure of it.

The reason I'd want a dedicated Trek game as opposed to mods is because there is SO MUCH depth to Trek that you could have extremely fleshed out but you could also do insane things like...imagine the Cardassians finding Khan or the Romulans stumbling upon Data and fixing him up. Or turning the Kazon from a bunch of lil gangsters into a Delta Quadrant Dominion.

The biggest thing lacking in Stellaris to give it a full Star Trek feel is the lack of mid-late game anomalies or things to do with your science ships besides assist research. Though Wiz said on the last stream that they are looking into adding more anomalies in later game but not in the upcoming patch, down the road somewhere. Also I'd like the scientific aspects to be a bit more fleshed out for a Trek game, more than just event chains.

What would you have made instead of Insurrection? by Jack Crusher - Sat, 30 Jul 2016 14:17:00 EST ID:k5sRUJT7 No.55392 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Something that I have been wondering for quite a while. Why did they make Insurrection?

I mean, it had almost nothing to do with anything and had a message that had been told much better in non-Trek stuff. I mean, Picard himself had assisted with forced relocations before without too many qualms (See "Journey's End")

So, what would you have liked to see instead, anything Trek related. I mean, would you have done a different movie with the TNG cast? Maybe do one final TOS film? Gone through with the original idea of it being a film all about Q? Done something with the DS9 crew?

I personally always thought that they should have used it as a nice cross-over, bringing Sisko, Picard and Janeway together for something, maybe to do with the Dominion War. Maybe have a bit where Voyager temporarily makes it back to the Alpha Quadrant for a little time and explain how Voyager managed to use 123 of their "irreplaceable" 38 Photon Torpedo complement.

I kinda like the idea of Defiant, Enterprise-E and Voyager just having crippled the bad guys ship, but at the cost of their own, when the bad guy opens a portal to escape to the Delta Quadrant. Naturally, Picard is like "Someone needs to follow them back to the Delta Quadrant and stop them. Enterprise is best equipped for this mission. We'll see you when we get back in 70 years." Before suddenly they get disabled by a few shots from Voyager with Janeway going "Can't let you do that, Captain. We've been trapped in the Delta Quadrant for a long time, we can handle ourselves, but the Federation needs her flagship here to fight the Dominion."

So, let's hear what you would have done in the late 90's.

It's one thing I have noticed in TNG that kind of irks me: The Federation is very careful with the rights and wishes of minority groups, but generic Federation humans/humanoids get the shaft an awful lot. The moment they're considered part of the ingroup by the Federation they're expected to make sacrifices they often don't really want to make.

And that's how you get the Maquis. This is another one of those things that really shows how brilliant and necessary DS9 was.

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.

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.

Good point
It's interesting how with subtle trickery you can use the future to change the past

Yes comrades, the humans will destroy us in the future if we do not destroy them first. A dark shadowy figure from the X files, or enterprise, or something told me.

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.

Fuck yes, your individual neurons can work together without your consciousness mind to write an episode of trek far better than most of Enterprise

Word sounds like an interesting dream
I had a dream a few weeks ago where me and my best friend fell off a cliff mansion thing after partying and after having a nightmare fall, got picked up by a shuttle craft and Worf and Geordi told us we were being stupidly unsafe
:(

At least yours made sense. I think mine is telling me to keep being a weeaboo and avoid pitbulls.

DS9 S3E18 Distant Voices

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?

I don't imagine that it would slip by copyrights but then again I don't see why they would put the song in its entirety in the episode considering how much it costs, so idk..

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.
