This is a Jeffrey Combs appreciation thread.
Why is Jeffrey Combs your favorite actor in trek, and what is your favorite iteration of Jeffrey Combs? Some favorite moments of his characters?

Either Shran is comic relief which I didn't get. Or you think I'm bashing him for the amount of scenery he chews?

Honestly, with exception of perhaps Stewart and in flashes Brooks, none of the acting in Trek is delivered with true gravitas, it's delivered in a hammy way. I mean nobody chews the scenery like Bill Shatner, and he's the very type of Trek itself. For as many actors Nimoy inspired, he is really hamming his way through the whole show tbh. Same with any of the others.

Combs is brilliant because he is obviously very conscious of it. He's a genre actor, but he leans into it beautifully. I think his scenery-chewage is a big part of his appeal, but I feel that way about the campy-ness of the acting in Trek in general.

At times he's amusing but yeah I love how over the top he is. He's an alien not a human. And yes, it's not super fine acting but it's a masterclass in doing what works with the show really well.

Shran was there to provide an opposite to the vulcans. He singlehandedly make the Andorians perfect enemies and perfect allies for the vulcans by being everything they are not. He feigns annoyance when he instantly likes and trusts Archer (mostly) he screws him over but does not begrudge the turnaround when Archer gets him back. The vulcans held humans back for decades, in the alternate timeline where enterprise failed Shran gives the last humans shield tech and it's his seething blue man who makes it all work.

Definitely Weyoun, but I enjoy Brunt too. Weyoun is just so sly and shifty, and it's hilarious when his patience is tried. His expressions and jibes when dealing with Damar are priceless, especially when he looks accusingly at Damar as he says his Weyoun 5 died in a mysterious transporter accident, and Damar's knowing expression as he casually denies it.

Due to spending too much time on the internet on political debates or talking about social justice for the longest time my entire outlook on life was fucked up, only in black and white. After watching a lot of Star Trek over the past few months, I feel like I'm not really weird for thinking that there's hope.

I mean yeah we probably won't ever have starships or anything like that, but it's really the fact that there is something out there that says that humanity has good instead of everyone and their mother saying that humanity sucks and will kill themselves, regardless of whether it's true or they're just saying it so senpai can notice them and have sex with them.

Maybe it was because it was a different era but I dunno I guess I'm just tired of seeing pessimism everywhere and shit. I'm not saying we should vomit rainbows 24/7 but we shouldn't be vomitting shit 24/7 either.

I don't know what else to say but thanks Roddenberry for creating this magnificent franchise.

Kirk: Golden god even features pure American cat
Spock: Refined, sharp, angled features, god-tier ears

Scott: A blobby scottish pile
Sulu: Sharp, dignified, angular features cat, rather than what would be our Chekov cat, pic related (but with black hair)

Voyager subtly plays with the idea that different species go to an afterlife specific to them (it's not the most original idea, it's like saying that Christians go to Christian heaven, Muslims go to Muslim heaven, etc.)

Although in the same way it kind of pulls the punch, leaving it up to you to decide whether it's suggesting this is what actually happens to people when they die, or just that people's expectations build a heaven in the near-death state (which is the issue in real life too) :

>B'Elanna goes to Klingon hell, gets angry
>Neelix DOESN'T go to the Great Forest, is greatly disappointed
>Those aliens who, when they died, went to live in that planet's rings as energy

And then of course 'Coda'...so we can say that either there is or isn't an afterlife in Star Trek, but if there is, each species/religion has a unique one. So that means either that all humans are always only eaten by the Coda dude -- that our afterlife in particular and perhaps afterlives in general are actually bunk and just ways for energetic beings to eat our life force after we're done with it...

...or that (and this is the one I prefer) that was just some freaky Delta quadrant alien who attacked Janeway in particular, and all the stuff he said was just lies to trick her.

This guy: True eventual devourer of your immortal soul or just a lying dipshit -- you decide.

I have a secret theory that Neelix is actually the Caretaker Array alien, and that he spends his many many many years spying on aliens across the galaxy, and abducts ships for the purpose of riding them back all the way to their home system. Everything that happens in Voyager that is weird and has no real explanation is just Neelix fucking with them to make things interesting.

So for this episode, he was basically doing the Nagilum thing to learn about how each species on Voyager would deal with experiencing their particular afterlife.

>"The idea of leaving any species to die in its own filth when you have the ability to help them, just because you wanna let them get through their normal evolutionary processes is bunk -- it's a bunch of fascist crap," he said.


Obviously none of us care what Robert Beltran thinks, I'm using the article as more of a framing device for a larger discussion about the Prime Directive. Personally I agree with his opinion and kind of felt vindicated when I saw this story. I never liked the Prime Directive, especially how they always try to portray it as some noble principle when it's literally just "fuck you, I got mine" enshrined in law.

I'd never thought about klingons love of blades, I just assumed it was to do with it being showy and dramatic as befits their culture. However what you're saying also makes perfect sense. It's one of those things which doesn't contradict or re write anything and actually further explains something so it's going in my head canon.

Do y'all think that TOS is a little underrated on this board? I don't see many of the cast topping the lists in the Ranking or the All-Franchise Crew threads. Most of the headcanons I'm reading here don't seem to concern the series very much either (possibly cause it has so many one-off plots, but I digress.)

I'm not a trekkie by nature, I enjoy it just like any other good TV show. But I've slowly completed all the series, and came away with what I assume are the usual criticisms: everyone is so best of the best in TNG that it's hard to do conflict based in character flaw (outside of Worf), DS9 is fantastic but lacks the frontier motif that's in other Treks, VOY has its moments but is mostly mishandled, and ENT starts with a bang, then gets really boring, then good again, then shittily ended. But still the only criticism I can levy against TOS is that there are retarded 60s camp episodes - but unlike bad episodes in other series, they still charm the pants off of me.

Is my reverence for TOS just me being a casual? Cause you guys seem to enjoy it well enough, but it places like, 3rd for most of you.

TOS did the "wrapping current events in alien clothing and presenting it in a way that's thought provoking and meaningful" schtick very well. I think it would have been better of Rick Berman and Brannon Braga had emulated TOS more instead of diverging in their own ways philosophically, at least concentrating on this theme a bit more.

They did it a little bit with enterprise (Suleiban being treated as prisoners of war mirroring Guantanamo) but it wasn't as subtle or nuanced as the way it was done in ToS.

Also, some people call it sexist or dated fashion, but the female uniforms were better.

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?

While the former and the latter are both prevailing stereotypes, ultimately they are both correct and incorrect. America DOES have a legacy of sexual not quite 'repression', but certainly a bit more congruent of the concept of innocence, so not necessarily because they are anti-fun police, or that Americans are prudes. One has to understand though that innocence was a very treasured concept - not even hundreds of years ago, you were considered an adult more or less at 12-14, variously. The sexual repression may look obstentatious now, but really, globally, culture is a lot more cognizant of adolescence. Back when the Puritans formed (in a wider sense, part of the Reformation, and the European Wars of Religion), it wasn't exactly unknown poor girls could and would be prostitutes at 12, and no one in society really batted an eye. While it wasn't doctrinally part of their platform, it was part of a noble wider platform that children should have time to grow up. If anything, American moral puritanism is more a result of social gospel/revivalist movements arising in the 1800s and 1900s.

While there is an element of repressiveness, one also has to remember American has the biggest porn industry in the world by far, American popular culture is always pushing against what 'can be' shown, and in some ways is the most degenerate in the scale and depth of what can be shown.

A way to understand this would be that America largely doesn't do things in half measures. There isn't really moderation. Very dualistic, so in sense, that's why it can be both true that America is the most prudish and yet also the most libertine of the Western world.

Now, how does that relate to the Trek question? First, for any issues about sex=bad, blame Roddenberry, he gave off that light in Mirror Mirror. It's not the sex that is more often in the Mirror universe, necessarily. First though, remember, for the most part we're seeing the Terran Empire, or it's Remnants - so what is culturally endemic or left behind in their former space isn't necessarily a galactic truth. What seems more evident is that there less cutting to the chase of power dynamics, and a seemingly more upfront attitude to proclaiming desire. The scale or power is no different than our world, it's just the mode of presentation is different. If you know any couple out there in our world, and are privy to their secrets, often you know they get up to some ridiculously kinky shit. Even 'average' people. It just seems it's a bit more open in general. There's less beating around the bush. Even Terran fashion tends to reflect it, with instead of the hide-and-seek of how we dress and use our imagination to fill in the blanks in our world, there the cultural expression seems to be presenting you the goods (and thus, truth) upfront, and leaving it to you from there, yet still being presentable and functional. Both men and women's clothes express power more in the MU, and an element of mystery/danger. You can see it in the sharper angles, the shorter hemlines, strategic empty space, wider useage of capes and sashes and other nicknacks, higher collars, lower necklines, tighter fabric, etc etc. My point is it's just a different mode of presentation.

The UV light was mainly just used on Geordi when some kinda long hibernating parasitic infection that he had for years turned him into some kinda psychedelic invisible frogman. The UV light allows normies to see these invisible frogs. It's a fun body horror episode with a creepy vibe.

However that device appears to have multiple functions because it was also used when LaForge and Ro got accidentally cloaked to detect the radiation they emitted when they'd go through tables or a wall or something (the Next Phase)

Worf just uses it to zap the gorches off his face. Nobody likes a gorch. Shits an eyesore.

Nah man, you're getting your "Cloaking Device malfunction" episodes mixed up.. though to be fair, I think they happen fairly close to one another in the run of TNG

The Next Phase is some Romulan cloaking transporter malarky, the Pegasus was about Riker's old Captain and their sooper seekrit Federation Cloaking Device that was built in violation of a treaty with Romulus.

In Non-Riker-Modded-Cooking-Sim Enterprise, I want to believe that the basic gist of that episode happened but at the end, Trip just ended up looking like this.. his face all fucked up, but basically the same guy.. he just almost died to save his homies.

According to the books, Trip's non-death was a classified matter which wasn't de-classified until after TNG, so Riker's program is based on the cover-up story.

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

I dig the special aliens only ships for extreme environments. USS No Kill I comes to mind. Until now I alway sthought the Vulcan only ship was just a ship full of racist Vulcans that came to play baseball against captain black rights.

Yeah there's a lot of subtext of all the guest races on TNG and such that need extra life support gear or who would be really uncomfortable at human working temperatures.

I mean, there's a big debate between women and men about office air conditioning because men apparently like it 3 degrees colder than women.

>In 2014 If the Drew Carey show had continued Drew would have had to deal with MImi, assembling a feminist uprising and demanding less overbearing A/C.
>Drew in his managerial position has a completely restrictive budget and the HVAC system would need to be significantly overhauled to regulate a more precise temperature.
>Hetero life-mates Oswald and Lewis have participated in a DrugCorp gene fusion study and have become the world's first homosexually reproduced baby, carried to term by Kate as a surrogate.
>Their son, in a case of being greater than the sum of his parts, and exposed to the rapid prototyping and cheaply available computers and robotics of today, guaranteed the finest education by DrugCorp.
>He builds an infrared drone to map out the cold spots in the room.
>Drew allows voluntary repositioning of all desks. Saving significant renovation costs and appeasing the international social media mob.
>Mimi selects one of the coldest areas to remain within
>Drew has lost all of his weight and prefers a warmer temperature
>Mimi Bobeck still antagonizes Drew on social media
>Drew misses Mimi, tearfully scrolling through and reminiscing about their old banter.

Anybody find it really disturbing that phasers pretty much vaporize an entire person? No body or anything to bury. They're just... fucking gone. I know Star Trek is idealized and all but just think about how something like that can be easily abused.

Pretty disturbing in that it really leaves no possibility of a non-fatal casualty on the field. We see a lot of disruptor wounds in the few times they show ground-combat areas and they act more like directed-energy weapons a la Star Wars, with burns and cauterized punctures. But a phaser on high setting leaves nothing. No arm to tourniquet, no chest to bandage. It's a very draconian but very effective warfighting weapon if you're not going for the whole "wound a soldier and it disables two soldiers because one has to care for other, etc etc" doctrine.

There have been plenty of wars in ST but for the most part they're heard, not seen. O'Brien has seen some shit apparently fighting the glorious Cardassian Union but all we get is anecdotes and references. Some episodes showed military hospitals or triage centers (like in DS9) but it never went into depth what these weapons do to people.

I think a more military scifi-themed spinoff series with a mix of combat scenes and cerebral storyline, paced similar to Stargate SG-1, would do well. In the eras of the older shows the mere idea and suggestion of space oddities was enough to titillate the viewer, but now most audiences have an action/violence/explosion fetish. With that in mind I think a show from, say, the POV of a Starfleet marine officer or security officer on an Akira during the Dominion War would be pretty titties.

Yeah though against enemy who give a single fuck about their own it's the best doctrine.

In the beginning of one of TNG's underrated episodes, The Vengeance Factor, Riker vaporizers a piece of metal to create a smokescreen. Riker, Worf, Data, and LaForge are under fire, they pop out and all blast this barrel thing, and it creates a shit-ton of smoke (pic related). Phasers vaporizing someone should do this as well, like in the newer War of the Worlds where people get blasted into clouds of fucking ash and smoke. That is, if you wanted to be realistic.

Just saying, I've vaporized a lot of things in my day, Trellium-D, Ketracel White, maraji crystals, you name it nigga

If the answer to either question is yes, you're in luck:

Of course they are. In multiple, treacherous layers. Some layers are disguised as something else (perhaps a vulva, for example), even, to fool and deter reproduction with those who lack sneaky intelligence. Cardassians hide the truth of everything, it is rare to witness the actual form of their manhood.

Just why does this even exist


So that's why it's harder for Vulcan women to get preggers. Apparently the longer the fallopian tubes, the harder the little runners have to strain. Who'd a thunk?

Who do you think is the top with these two?
Is it the Chief with his grizzled, world-weary man's manliness, or Bashir with his refined sensibilities and augment powers?

Personally I think it's the Chief ramming that creamy mocha-colored ass every night, perhaps after a rousing sortie against the Jerries?

Let's bring out other slash pairings of crew members and speculate on their relationships, much to the cringing of all.

You think Garak would allow that? Anyone who had those pictures has died mysteriously already. Plus Garak can be stealthy and discreet with his backstabbing.

If it exists and isn't too illegal you know Guinan has it
