I know all about epigentics. They're "genetic memories" the sense that they reflect short-term environmental factors etc which have a response (ie enabling or disabling particular protein codings) that is passed down, when previously nobody knew DNA could have a "memory" of something so immediate. They're not literal human memories.

For example, if a father is obese at the time of impregnation, the offspring will have a different insulin response than another offspring from the same father after he loses weight.

There's no known mechanism for memes to make their way from your brain into your DNA encoding. And since there'd be a huge selective pressure to take advantage of this if it existed (say, passing on survival memes like how to hunt or which berries to avoid in the environment which your parents habitate, so your offspring would be equipped from birth instead of it taking upwards of a decade to teach them shit in the case of humans), we can probably rule it out.

Though perhaps the stolen DNA adds important simulation data for their active cognition--details about their particular neurotransmitter balance etc--or helps to add biological context to the resimulation/compilation of their memories from whatever source as part of their integration into an authentic, total virtual clone.

>Why? He doesn't need them to have a perfectly realistic digital clone body.
I agree, he could make super lifelike imitations just by compiling security footage from work, photos/videos from their social media, etc. Maybe it wouldn't be a perfect 1:1 biological (and neurological) clone of the person though, like he can get by stealing their jizz and growing a 3D model.

Or maybe he could get a perfect 1:1 imitation by secretly scanning somebody with a microwave sensor or something. Maybe there are numerous technologies available which could achieve the exact same result, but he just prefers the DNA clone approach out of many possible options. Maybe it's the easiest or safest way, or it's his fetish.

That's a good thought.

>but he just prefers the DNA clone approach out of many possible options
but this doesn't sit well with me because if there were different options, then stealing their DNA back from him really is pointless as he could just recreate them differently. Then again, unless they caused him to die somehow or communicated with their real selves and authorities, there's not much they can do to stop him just stealing their DNA again. It's not as though he went to a lot of trouble for it.

They were mainly concerned with getting rid of the lollypop so that he wouldn't be able to bring the kid back, since that bring-your-kid-to-work-day was a one-off thing.

Not that that would necessarily stop him (as all Trek fans know, luring children and extracting their DNA is easy) and really it wouldn't even have mattered if he made a fake clone for his purposes anyway, but it's what the CEO's clone was hung up on.

It's not exactly 'revealed'; the show is pretty clear on their mutual affection for all of Season 1.

No it's not because he doesn't.

this episode had the crew of Voyager develop transwarp technology, encountered a horrifying flaw, and that had the doctor cure it. Basically they could have used this to get home at any time, and this happened season 2, episode 15. When you realize this, you can't unrealize it.

It's not really clear what happened when the drive "worked" though. What if the doctor got shut down and the entire crew decided they didn't need treatment after the journey because he lost his mind pretty quickly. A ship full of people as crazy as Janeway is too much. When the number went from 1 to 2 there was lizard sex.

Made a thread about this when I started the show but it's fallen off the last page. I've been slowing down my watching because I really don't want to finish it and be out of episodes to watch. Anyway I'm on season 6 and just watch the two-parter Chain of Command. Now I finally know what everyone keeps referencing lol. What a powerful episode. Not to mention Riker's most badass monologue yet when he tells Jellico what a dickhead he is.

When Jellico ordered the 4th duty shift Riker didn't install it, bitched about it, and then had to be told twice.

Jellico said it best himself to Picard:
>"I want this ship ready for action, and I don't have time to give Will Riker or anyone else a chance. And forgive me for being blunt, but the Enterprise is mine now."

The crew, save Data, was unprofessional, and it could've cost lives. Us liking them doesn't make their pouting okay and shouldn't paint Jellico as a heavy.

I disagree. I thought Jellico was alright. If he'd taken a little time to read the crew instead of spending a few days battling them he'd have probably gotten them to suggest half the things he was going to tell them to do.Good managers on competent staff do that. Staff who are on side will be more resilient. Jellico was lucky that shit didn't go wrong outside his plan because the crew in the state it was in with low morale would have responded poorly. You can talk about whining and shit but it doesn't matter. The difference between a crew appearing to comply and being miserable and being miserable is polish on your shit. Shit morale is shit morale and it does affect everything if everyone feels disempowered or unappreciated. You can talk about "Professionalism" all day but Jellico's job includes getting the most out of his crew. They're not military or robots, so data aside that means motivating them and engaging them. Sure he had a great plan but most managers would be able to get their subordinates to dream them up and then would pick and amend the best one. A good manager would just have to suggest that 4 shifts might be better and the crew would jump to do it with a smile on their face.

Jellico's stiff and inefficient approach makes for better TV though. And in the end it's what saves him. He won't fail. It's not humbleness, it's his unwillingness to compromise and his seriousness that gives him the strength to eat Riker's shit and save the day. Did he need to do it that way? But this isn't Gene trek, every captain has their strengths and weaknesses. I like to think that Jellico learned a bit about captaining and so did Riker. In the end they both had to recognise that the other had a point to save Picard and the ship and a lot of lives I suspect. TNG did have a habit of applying character growth quite subtly, so we'd never see if future Jellico was a bit more subtle about his approach to people. Riker was definitely hard on junior officers who didn't do it his way in the future, even himself.

You ignore that they weren't under normal circumstances. You keep saying they're not military when it was clearly a military negotiation and black op taking place. You toss aside the idea of professionalism as if it's not incumbent on any subordinate in any setting to do what they're told. And you ignore the time crunch they were under. It's easy to talk as if Jellico had time to spare to romance the crew, but he didn't. When Picard went back to the past in All Good Things and asked the crew to do a bunch of shit that made no sense, they raised their eyebrows, asked him if he was sure, but they didn't whine.

This wasn't just a manager taking over at your job, dude. Senior officers should have better bearing. Plus they all served on more than one ship under more than one captain-- surely one of them had a hardass superior in the past. And again, Jellico is the one who is man enough to put the petty bullshit aside when he needs Riker to pilot, showing that he knows how to massage egos and humble himself, he just didn't have time for that nonsense under the circumstances. Disagree with me all you want, but I come from a place of expecting better from our crew. They acted like babies.

After rewatching part one on Heroes & Icons, it does paint some of the senior crew in a bad light. Riker not telling Jellico he wasn't adding the 4th shift in was insubordinate, and his aborted attempt to complain to Picard was too. Picard probably would've told him as much. Troi's empathic abilities apparently only work on Jellico when she sense he's not sure of himself during negotiations. She should've been the first one to know that the man was all business, and instead she is surprised when he tells her he doesn't have time to honeymoon the crew and to get herself a uniform. Geordi's complaints and how he makes them do sound whiny. Everything he's asked to do is attainable, as Data dispassionately points out.

It seems as if the crew doesn't care about making a good impression on their new CO. They expect it to work the other way around. From the minute Jellico steps off the transporter Riker is rolling his eyes, showing that he gives Jellico less of a chance than Jellico does Riker. In fact Riker comes across worse because he seems jealous he didn't get command. The title of the episode itself is a reminder that there is indeed a chain of command in Starfleet, and there is no use bitching about it or trying to circumvent it.

And in the end, IIRC part two correctly, once Data is made first officer the ship seems to be running smoothly. At no point are the halls more crowded or is the ship failing to get up to Jellico's expectations or do crewmen look exhausted. The mission is a success and Jellico tells them it was an honor to serve with them. He ended up getting more out of the crew than they thought they had in them, and Troi keeps the uniform. He was a great captain to have everything from the Cardassians to his crew to time working against him and still accomplish a sensitive mission without incident. His kid's pictures remind us that he's probably a good man, but the situation demands he be terse and have the ship ready for heavy combat. I liked Jellico more by the end of this re-watch.

How does star fleet go to the bathroom? I know they have sonic showers, so I figure they don't have very robust plumbing.

My best guess is they vaporize the waste right in the toilet and then they have some sort of sonic bidet to clean the winker. The wife disagrees, and says they probably just beam all the waste directly out of the body and either dump it in space or reuse the raw materials. The evidence she cites is that we see people in the brig all the time, and there's no toilet in there.

I know Disco has some bathroom scenes, are there enough clues there to piece together a bigger picture?

So as you may have heard, there are rumors about Tarantino directing the next Trek movie. He pitched the idea to Abrams and it was well recieved or something?

and now Patrick Stewart announced that if Tarantino directs it, he wants to be in it.

not trying to get my hopes up, but this could actually be pretty darn good. Theories? Hopes? Will this be in the Kelvin timeline? I am looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

I dunno, some guy who had the record for most blood in a single film for 20 years who was known as a cult gore film director, whose magnum opus had zombies fucking and during the the penis bursts out the back and there is a zombie baby as a result, whose previous works had a guy eat part of his own brain and thwart man eating aliens, who did a film that was a satire of muppets but with drug addicted, sleazy disease infected animals fucking and murdering each other. That'd be fucking crazy.

Tarantino would be almost as mad as picking Peter Jackson as director for lord of the rings wouldn't he?

If you were blindsided by this go watch Brain Dead/Dead Alive, it's worth it for the lawnmower scene at least.

You're insane. That's almost as crazy as a director who made films centered around people getting run over, shot, blown up, and otherwise maimed in the Australian Outback going on to make Academy Award winning family films about piglets and penguins. Directors can only do one thing, you madman.

it took me a little while into production of LotR to realize that Peter Jackson was Pete Jackson

The post he was replying to pointed out that Peter Jackson was known for a particular genre and style before he took on LOTR, and he ended up knocking those out of park. George Miller going from the Mad Max trilogy to Babe and Happy Feet is another example, and thus there's little reason to believe that Tarantino can't make a good Trek movie.

A little tidbit of news I just saw on Memory Alpha says that Chris Hemsworth hasn't spoken with JJ Abrams about Trek XIV since Beyond came out, which casts doubt on whether or not he'll be in it. Makes sense if Tarantino is wanting to adapt The City on the Edge of Forever. I'm fine if he goes in that direction if it wraps up Kelvin via The Guardian setting things right.

He was too young for the recurring role. The other kid was too IMO.

That's my guess too. Fucking bummer.

umm... i hope they put the prosthetic on before putting the blackface on.. *is disturbed*.

I also know him from playing Quinten in the first series of Grace under Fire, until they decided that it would be more interesting if she had a teenage son, and the character aged 7 years over the summer.

It's really sad that he died, he lived a good life though, someone to be admired for sure. I hope I can achieve a quarter as much in the next year and a half before I turn 33

If the makeup went on first the glue for the appliance would adhere to that and not his skin. The appliances would then fall off. This is bad.

Maybe he has a pinkface skull ridge and they have to paint the blackface over it.

It was telegraphed ambiguously.
What is also ambiguous is whether this was a blunder or good writing.

When I can call events in Black Mirror I get the distinct impression that Charlie Brooker is feeding it to me intentionally and that it's actually just simple but good narrative weaving.
Then it gets taken somewhere else, and while events were foreshadowed you never called how impactful it was going to be.

That's good writing. Not trying to outsmart the audience or trick them. Except into feeling sadder than they expected.

Discovery? Who knows. Terrible writing elevated by good execution? Excellent writing damaged by execution? I can't fuckin' tell.

More like Eddington 0.1. DS9 eased us into Eddington and the betrayal was a surprise. Eddington was no one special until he became someone special. STD dropped this twit into the middle of the inner circle because the plot needed it, not because he actually belonged there and was a natural fit. We never wondered why Eddington was positioned where he was. With Twit we questioned it from the start just like we question most of the show - the characters are making incoherent decisions to serve the plot.

I'm not watching the second half of the season. The first half has already shown me just what to expect. STD is like that one guy in a circle of friends where people try to assure that "he's not that bad" and "he's an acquired taste" which is just code for "after a while it bothers you less when he shits in your mouth in front of everybody and laughs at you." Fuck off, Discovery. You're a leech and you don't belong here.

The first episode of the second half of the season has probably been the best of the season. It's not great, It's not really even good. But I'll keep watching to see if it makes a turn.
But even if the rest of the season is good, it still won't redeem the horrible start to the show though.
