Did you ever hear about these fucking fast radio bursts? I'm pretty sure they're just pic related. We think they come from the farflung ends of the universe because we look and the only things it seems like they're coming from are hella far, but if was some ferengi trade ship by sirius how the fuck would we know?

Regarding the Fermi paradox:

Shows if you account for currently known factors it's simply technologically hard to detect radio broadcasts.
We currently aren't even able to detect radio broadcasts at our own level from any other star.

For a civilization to pick up the TOS series when it first aired it would have to be most likely type II.
Worse currently conceivable ways to detect our radio bubble would require the aliens to directly point the receiver at our solar system. So considering we are talking about fractions of an arc-second the probability of that happening becomes neg-liable.

So the point here: Our galactic neighborhood could be so full of live to the point where every other star system is inhabited and we wouldn't have noticed.

Really strange to start seeing that there might be something out there living in space. The thought always grabbed my imagination, but there are all these strange signs that are so much bigger then the sort of stuff that happened prior to lets say a 100 years ago. I guess huamnity is fairly primitive, otherwise we'd know about how they where getting around even if we couldn't match it entirely.

The way my radio just cut out when I start browsing through those articles of yours and considering space faring speices sailing deep in space, its kind of got me spooked a bit.

TBBT stands for "The Big Bang Theory", which many nerds hate because they consider it to be profiting off of exploiting nerd experiences while ostensibly claiming to be created by fellow nerds.

In order to demonstrate their true nerdness, nerds will then, instead of ignoring it, annoyingly turn their volume up to 11 so that we all know to know how much they hate the show and thus increase their own reputation as an authentic nerd, since no real nerd would enjoy this exploitative franchise. Similar to how high school kids will rant about how much they hate the current pop star to show how much of an independent thinker they are.

I guess that's another interpretation. It's definitely hard to call. Though actually thinking about the wormhole aliens nature more it gets even more complex.

I think the thing that makes it go from grey to colours our eyes can't perceive is that the prophets don't perceive linear time. So does that mean they always knew Wynn would do what she did? To them was this just a thing that Wynn does rather than something she would or had or could do?

Its sort of like Predestination without the paradox. The Prophets saw that Wynn was unfaithful and untrustworthy, so they rejected her, which led to losing all faith and trust in the Prophets, which the Prophets saw that Wynn... and so on and so on.

Well, the prophets are extra-temporal, so they could have easily changed "what Winn does" because that is exactly what time does to people who are forced to obey it. But they chose not to, despite the fact that they had an easy in to change her faith to their side (her undying, until a point, rank-and-file loyalty), which means they must have had some motive behind choosing not to.

See I don't think she was ever really a believer in the prophets. I think she believed in the religious institution, the vedek assembly and not the prophets. Once they started proving themselves she still still put the institution above the so called deities it worshipped. They chose the emissary but she always thought she knew better. Doesn't sound like undying faith to me.

I think that sort of thing isn't unique to space villains, there's a lot of it on earth now.

Maybe not quite what you're thinking, but the TNG Recuts by *military rank* Grin are simply amazing material. It's a mirror universe TNG series where the crew is seemingly self aware of their own plot armor.

Malcolm Reed discussion.
He is a pretty understated character. Obviously he's kinda anti-social. He even comes off as possibly gay considering the way that he seems to have no interest in the opposite sex. But he's a genius when it comes to his station and he's pretty good under pressure and at coming up with quick solutions like in this episode (Silent Enemy) where him and Trip basically pulled 2 phase cannons out of their asses in 2 days.
Is Reed a good character or is he just boring. I think it's safe to say that he's definitely not just boring and generic (like Mayweather), my opinion is that it's just his kind of personality that doesn't make for him being extremely compelling or a good center of attention for an episode.
Also, who are your favorite characters from ENT?

I get the impression that Reed has slowly become accepted because he's not an idiot, and he doesn't have any grating character flaws. In a decent series, he would be considered a bad character. Then again, in a decent series, he would have been a new O'Brien, and not just Malcolm Reed.

Reed is awesome, he's so great because he is the total opposite of your average Trek character. Instead of being loud, charismatic, and full of himself (i.e. an Ameribro in fact or in style like most of the human crewmembers) he is quiet, thoughtful, fastidious and just likes to do a good job and follow the rules (i.e. a genuine Eurobro.)
The fact that he doesn't jump in your face and is unassuming while also being very competent at his job really makes me enjoy what little screen time he does get.
He would be my top pick for a starfleet security chief (Odo is probably a better security officer, but I'll never trust that shifty shapeshifter.)

Shran, and maybe Archer himself.
The whole show gets a bad rap.
It's mainly because autismal trekkies that have permanent nostalgiaboners for TNG simply can't handle it, and never give it a chance.
Archer starts out pretty much having no idea what he's doing, but trying hard anyway. This is often interpreted as Bakula being a bad actor, or the script being bad.
It's actual character development.
This is probably the hardest show to choose best characters for, because they change so much.
TNG, all the characters remain exactly the same, until maybe the movies.
Enterprise, you have Archer as a pilot trying hard to be a diplomat and explorer, doing a job literally no man had done before-- he goes through major changes throughout the show, and by the end, he's a True Captain.
Similarly, Hoshi starts out a whimpering wuss, but ends up being one of the strongest realest niggas on the show, see her part in the Xindi arc.
Reed actually loosens up over time, and turns useless paranoia and stiffness into real tactical security knowhow.
The only characters that really suck are Trip, because he only becomes more and more of a pussy over time, and Mayweather, because they spend so many episodes trying to make him grow, but just never pull the trigger. Mainly you end up remembering he has like three episodes where he breaks his fucking leg.

I really like Soval, because he also grows vastly and goes from an intransigent bigot into respect for humanity and into a more flexible and brave character, befitting the cultural reaction to the infiltration of Vulcan by the Romulan fascists.

I know there are a few other Treks out there. I'd like to watch a new series. I'd like good character development, and relations between characters being well written and acted - that is more important to me than pewpewpew battles and stuff. I love the futuristic-ness, and pewpewpew battles are great, but it's okay if they're not as common as in the other series.

So, could any of you sell me on a series? I miss being drawn into another world. I'm pretty lonely and depressed right now and I'd like to just leave Earth for a while, if you know what I mean.

....what? The Xindi arc wasn't even dreamed of in SEASON 1 of ENT. Do you really think that a television production has three seasons worth of scripts in the can before they film the first episode? What would be the point of making a dramatic and structural change for the whole 3rd season if that was the kind of show they wanted to run all the time?

The Xindi arc was designed to return to major serialized storylines to recapture the success of DS9 after a weak first two seasons. Read the Braga quote in the 'Background information' part of this MA article, where he talks about how they decided to change direction in between seasons 2-3, and notes the date the script for 'The Xindi' was submitted in 2003:

Man I saw the first episode of ENT air live on TV, several weeks after 9/11. That episode wasn't based on post-9/11 paranoia, nor was much of the first season, because that indeed already had been produced by then. But don't take my word for it, here's Scott Bakula's commentary:

Sorry, you guys got caught saying something that's just factually incorrect. Give it up.

Well the "Xindi Arc" was part of the temporal cold war. The arc started there but okay I'll concede that's me being technically correct rather than meaningfully so. But that aside I don't see how I'm wrong. Read my post again. Whether anything more than "there's a temporal cold war" was filled in doesn't matter. My point was that by the time the Xindi shit proper was shot that it was post 9/11 and the peak of it.

I'm being a bit unclear so that's mostly my fault.

That said you're correcting me and telling me I'm wrong saying that the show was shot before 9/11 because the first season was shot before 9/11.

What I was trying to say was that, 2 years later when the Xindi arc went from the occasional person saying "what do you know about the temporal cold war" to this mammoth that dragged waaaay to fucking long that this is what was on people's mind. Not that season 1 was post 9/11 paranoia but that by the time season 3 happened it was. And that there's much more to a production than just the words. I'm not a TV/Film expert but if you want argue I'm wrong you know even less.

I think we're talking about different things there. Do you follow me now?

I'm just baffled by this entire correspondence. You clearly are talking about something different than the person whose statement you were defending, so don't act like I'm the one who is confused.

>>57287 said
>>the xindi arc was written before 9/11

When I cited factual evidence that this was not the case, you defending them by saying
>>That arc was written and established prior to 9/11
but also
>>it was created and finally interpreted at the peak of post 9/11

I pointed out historical evidence indicating that the Xindi hadn't even been imagined before the mid of season 2, when Paramount issued them a directive to re-tool the series. That the Xindi time-line was ham-fistedly woven into their larger Temporal Cold War arc doesn't mean anything to do with the Xindi attacking earth was thought up before Season 1 aired. And in fact we have lots of evidence from the show producers who talk about how the concept of the Xindi emerged, I encourage you to research the plethora of information about it out there if you're so interested. Here's another good MA article:
>> The concept of the Xindi was additionally inspired by the attacks on 9/11 and those responsible for them. Director David Livingston mused, "The Xindi were [...] destroying parts of Earth, so it was reflective of what was going on at the time."

You are confused. However it's my fault you're confused. That's my final offer.

If the Xindi were or weren't established in season 1 or 2 doesn't change that ENT at it's worst (Season 3) was AMERICA FUCK YEAH. And that even you support that.

It has taken me until today to watch Star Trek Beyond. And now having seen the error of my ways I am overcome with guilt for not having supported it while it was in cinemas. I was busy in the summer, and the closest theatres weren't showing it, but I should have travelled. I should have made the effort.

It is so much better than Into Darkness. I swear that I will buy the bluray. But I humbly request absolution from my peers.

Plinkett is spot on about how there's Series Picard and Movie Picard.

Got another 1/3 of the way through the movie. So many one-in-a-million coincidences and bullshit. Hey there's like 1000 soldiers at this place I know let's not guard these prisoners and let them escape and fuck around. Let's explain my master plan to these prisoners for no apparent reason. I lost it at the motorcycle jump into transporter beam shit. And then I lost it again at the "hey we haven't tested anything but let's push this star ship off a cliff with everyone on board, what could go wrong?"

Still have about 35 minutes to go, but I need to calm down before I finish it. I'm actually really wondering what the plot twist will be for Krull or whatever his name is.

No harm done. JJTrek is so much better when JJ has nothing to do with it. You weren't to know.

It's not so much that that's all he can do as that's specifically what he's hired to do and he'll probably catch shit for being too original for taking risks.

That's why he slapped the cloverfield brand on the really decent Misery-meets-Alex-Jones thriller movie that became 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Nothing from the Cloverfield franchise helps the movie except in that it provides a completely un-earned ultimate climax on top of the well developed climax from the original story. Though I can't really say whether it's better in the end for the movie to be about a guy bunkering down in a real apocalypse rather than one that's in his head or that he lied about to imprison some drifters.

JJ Abrams might be unable to break his successful mold anymore but at least he's behind Dan Trachtenberg? Dan Trachtenberg seems like he might develop into a pretty good director. If that asshole can just stimulate the development of fresh directors without imposing his style onto them like he imposed Stephen Spielberg's style onto himself.
