Janeway and Chipotle - mom and dad, maybe divorced and remarried. They sit in their own chairs in the living room.

Tom - Janeways son. Sits directly in front of the TV and flips channels.

Kes - Janeways young daughter.

Harry - Tom's neighborhood friend. He won't leave.

Neelix - literally the cat.

Tuvok - Some kind of grandpa. Maybe the father of Chipotle's dead ex or something.

BLT - Chipotles daughter. Older than Tom. Things get weird when they develop feelings.

7/9 - Grown up version of Janeways daughter. Some how ends up with Chipotle.

ENT is:
Archer + Trip are college roommates who still live together a decade later
T'pol is the hot foreign chick that moves in across the hall that they both crush on
Reed is the building's security guy, ex-military, paranoid
Phlox is the hippy thats way into homeopathy
Travis is the homeless kid living in the vents

I'm partial to the idea that he is the youngest child of the last Talaxian Emperor, who panicked and ran away when the war came to the Home System

it would explain how the Talaxian Fleet in Exile was willing to go up against Voyager under Nistrim control

That or made it so there was always an ambiguity about his biggest bumbling incidents. Losing his lungs, getting caught in crime etc. The lungs could have been anyone I guess but if he'd actually been planning a lot of it all along, and the end turned into a triple or quadruple cross and voyager benefiting very tangibly as a result instead of him having a death wish it'd have worked much better.

So anyone who mentions hate to reduce it is the one responsible for it, got it. I was discussing Star Trek, I was trying to discuss the writing in DS9 vis a vis Sisko's partners (someone else brought it up) and simply because I compared three portrayals of minority relationships in the franchise in a mildly colorful way, I'm a hatemonger. If you're so angry at discussing this, why aren't you yelling at the person who brought it up? Better yet, why don't you actually discuss Star Trek by either responding to my points or bringing up something new, rather than just calling me a hatemonger for some reason I can't fathom?

>Prime Archer is obviously racist
He actually learns throughout the first couple of seasons and starts actually befriending them in season 3 and you get the feeling that by season 7 he'd be a total xenophile but yeah, initially he's all like "I hate vulcans,and I hate that I want to bang titpole even more". One thing ENT actually did alright was character progression.
>>56609
So the trans dimensional super biological aliens burst through to our dimension but spared it when they instantly befriended the borg king.

Alternatively if they are divergent the Borg simply ignored the humans for longer. What's interesting is the question of what happens in 500 or 1000 years? If the terran rebels in DS9 perhaps herald a new humanity more like the prime universe perhaps humans do eventually become peaceful and do the universes re converge? Or has the prime universe gone so completely elsewhere? Would Q show up later? Would they already be time travel humanity by then and thus able to deal with the Borg anyway? How will they manage without Admiral Insaneway timehaxxing?

I guess it depends on whether you think the Borg mission is genuine or just a smokescreen for a will to conquer. If they genuinely just want to raise quality of life and interface all organisms into the collective, they would probably just assimilate. If it's more of a conquest thing, then no.

Interestingly, in the non-canon sources it is said that the unique thing about Species 8472's fluidic space domain is that it doesn't contain alternate realities; thus there would be no Mirror Species 8472. Maybe this is their Achilles' heel, and Borg from across the multiverse might align specifically to finally conquer fluidic space, and emerge as a pan-multiverse Borg Alliance? Creepy shit.

At the end of Star Trek Generations, Picard goes into the Nexus after he fails to stop Soren from blowing up that sun. In the Nexus, he meets with an impression of Guinan who tells him he can go anywhere, anytime while inside the Nexus. So Picard in the Nexus goes back to the planet in the Nexus with Kirk in the Nexus. They stop Soren and save the day. However Picard has never left the Nexus.

Now, you may forget that at the beginning of Generations, Picard finds out his whole family has died in a fire, including his nephew. He's the last Picard. So the Nexus knows this, but mistakenly gives him a Christmas fantasy family, when Picard is so heartbroken over his family all he wants is action movie heroics. So what the Nexus gives him instead is: the subsequent movies, they're all super action packed and Picard is John McClain.

TL; DR: First Contact, Insurrection, and Nemesis are all plots generated by the Nexus to satisfy Picard.

So clearly Vulcans were originally intended to be Demons/Devils in TOS, but the later series got away from using this plot thread (for obvious reasons) but I think it makes the Vulcans a much more interesting species and really drives home the importance of the relationship between humans and vulcans in particular.
WTF am I talking about?
The design for Vulcans was clearly inspired by the Overlords from Arthur C. Clarke's "Childhood's End." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childhood%27s_End
In that story, humanity's first contact with aliens comes in the form of meeting the alien Overlords who have been watching over our planet, waiting for our species' childhood to end to introduce themselves. Their appearance is so shocking it is initially kept a secret; they look exactly like Demons/Devils of Christian and other mythologies.
This is explained by saying that humans possess a kind of reverse genetic memory; we saw those forms as demons because subconsciously we could see into the future and knew those forms would herald the 'end of the world' (at least, the world as it was before we reach into space.)
In TOS Spock is frequently made fun of as looking like a devil, or Satan himself. Just like he borrowed things from all kinds of sci-fi to mold Trek, I think Roddenberry's clear intent was that Vulcans look demonic because humans in the Trek universe also had this kind of reverse memory and knew that the arrival of the Vulcans would mean the end of the world as they knew it. What else could we figure out if we take this as true?
Vulcan is a hot, hellish world. I submit that it is only called Vulcan because they couldn't get away with naming it Hell.
Is the philosophy of logic/IDIC philosophy basically a kind of Satanism? (It certainly hews close to a LaVeyan kind of Satanism) alternatively is there a suggestion of rationalism = Satanism?
The coming together of humans and Vulcans was the catalyst which formed the Federation. After the fact, because there are so many humans in starfleet, it is usually humans who are the ones who make the first contact missions that 'end the childhood' of new worlds. Thus wouldn't those worlds imagine their demons as loo…

Been Doing a DS9 Rewatch, got to Season 5, Episode 12, "The Begotten" where Odo helps raise a changeling child.

There's a part about halfway through where Sisko shows up and tells Odo that Starfleet wants daily updates on his progress, and if he wants to stay in control he needs to make progress faster or someone else will take over the project.

The moment to me presented an interesting Parallel to Picard's actions in the episode "The Offspring" where Data makes Lal and a Starfleet Admiral tries to take possession of her, even issuing a direct order, and Picard is willing to put his entire career up on the line to defy this order on moral grounds.

It's interesting to compare these two moments for a number of reasons.
Firstly, Starfleet's involvement in Odo's efforts was odd from the start. Odo bought the child from Quark for like 4 spacebucks, so technically the changeling was Odo's... property? Wait, shouldn't the sale of sentient life be illegal under Federation or Bajoran law? And in the course of the episode Starfleet goes from a nebulous advisory position to threatening to take over the project. Where did that authority come from? I guess as part of an agreement to use DS9's scientific facilities to conduct his research?

But anyway, they get the Changeling to take some forms so The Brass never presses the issue again, but if they had and Odo had said "fuck off I'ma raise this boi" who would Sisko have sided with?

It's True Sisko and Odo have a different relationship than Picard & Data, Picard was a sort of Mentor or even father figure for Data whereas Odo is already a mature and fully independent being that only needs advice on dealing with cultural disparities like any other officer. But they were cordial and had a good working relationship which seemed to involve a genuine mutual respect.

On the other hand, this was during the Dominion War, and Sisko showed he would go to extreme lengths to win that war, but on the other hand his blessing in Dr. Bashir's efforts to destroy Section 31 show that he isn't just Starfleet's unquestioning goon. He has strong principles. And Sisko is a father himself, so there might be sympathy there, I should hope his principals stand firmly against child abduction. But the younger Changeling isn't really Odo's child in the way Lal was indisputably Data's creation, but then again the Changelings all seem to reproduce from the Great Link so this would at least qualify as Odo's... sibling?

I would say they're definitely going old school trek with this ship design. We could be in for a pretty fucking decent show...though those effects look fucking terrible. I hope that's just a concept design and they're going to get some real cgi artists in there.

My head cannon is that Lecardo or what ever his name was got beat up a lot in prison so he changed to to Tom Paris because it sounded so much like a name that gets you beat up in prison that every one thinks he can fight. Every one who refers to his father as Admiral Paris is just making fun of him to his face.

I literally just imagine they are saying 'Tom Paris' whenever they say that dude's name. The episode plays a whole lot better when you can tie it into Paris' actual character arc. (It really was their intent that they were the same character, they just changed the name because they didn't want to have to pay that writer royalties for every single episode of VOY)
Anyway back on topic, I was looking over at Memory Alpha and noticed that in the lore there is already a starship Discovery listed in almost every era of the canon: there's an NX-04 Discovery in ENT, and there's USS Discovery in the 24th century referenced on a panel in 'Conspiracy,' and then obviously this new one. Maybe fingers crossed they really will go era hopping, and without even needing to make up new ships, just different ships named Discovery? They have already admitted they are going to let old cast members make cameos, so maybe they are relenting a bit under the weight of what fans want? (which is near universally a series set post-Nemesis)

Synthehol is now real, except they're calling it alcosynth. What a missed opportunity:

After this, what will be the next Star Trek idea to be made real?

Still banking on the 2067 first contact.
Still bracing for the drug fueled WW3 and wrist machine guns.
