>The official @roddenberry Twitter account pointed out in a tweet yesterday that her voice has been preserved in phonetic recordings, which would make it possible to create a digital version that could be used not just in the new TV show, but also "for things such as Siri".

Here is my story of how I found Star Trek. Growing up, I would always laugh at Trekkies and cool them nerds. I thought that anyone who liked Star Trek was a loser and I felt superior to Trekkies. That all changed when I turned 19. I got my first girlfriend and I lost my virginity. I saw the complete series of Star Trek the Next Generation in CEX. Having lost my virginity I saw no harm in watching Star Trek. I watched it and it rocked my world. Then I bought the complete series of Voyager and my girlfriend dumped me. I cried and drank a lot but Voyager helped me through that dark time. The Doctor's character arc really touched me and Voyager changed my life. I love you Star Trek and I love you Trekkies.

I was born in '89. I remember watching reruns of TNG and later DS9/VOY as a child with my dad but don't have much memory of it either than that it happened. It wasn't until earlier this year that I decided to take the plunge and get into seriously watching Star Trek. I've been watching them in order and I'm up to the middle of Voyager right now. VOYS3E21 is my next ep. Sadly I didn't watch by stardate because I didn't have any trekkie friends to tell me to do so, so I went TNG+movies, DS9, and now am on VOY.

I've seen a bunch of randomly spaced eps of TOS and I don't think I'd have the steam to watch it all the way through, it's just such a different form of entertainment. And I don't think I'll ever watch ENT all the way through already knowing about master gourmet chef fatriker

I was born in '73. My only Treksposure was a couple of TOS comics and a novel, then my father took me to see Wrath Of Khan.

...I think I just realised where my fear of bugs getting in my ears comes from.

Anyway, I had only seen the movies, then I rented a couple of TOS episodes on VHS, and I was like, that's Scotty? Where did the rest of him go? And someone else said "We've been wondering that for years."

I was born in a small village. I was still a child when we were raided by soldiers. Foreign soldiers. Torn from my elders, I was made to speak their language. With each new post, my masters changed, along with the words they made me speak. Words are... peculiar. With each change, I changed too. My thoughts, personality, how I saw right and wrong... War changed me - and not only my visage. Words can kill. I was invaded by words, burrowing and breeding inside me. A philosopher once said, "It is no nation we inhabit, but a language." "Make no mistake, our native tongue is our true fatherland." My fatherland - my truth was stolen from me. And so was my past. All that's left is the future. And mine is revenge. On those who'd leech off the words of their fellow man. This is what I learned from the major. And then it hit me. It was he who should feel my wrath. He and the code he chose as basis for control. Language codes, information codes - beamed all around us - genetic codes spanning history. By controlling the codes, Cipher... Zero intends to unify the world. Codes implanted into our heads, sucking our minds dry as it spreads from one host to the next. A parasite upon the earth. That is what Zero is. As one born into this world, he's afflicted. I hold him responsible for killing my freedom. Killing all traces of my past... Killing any promise of a future... We are all but dead men forced to walk upon this earth. A world reduced to Zero. Cipher plans to use its codes to control the world. They think they can.

Thread for all things Patrick Stewart, from all times at all times for all times.

http://trekmovie.com/2010/08/13/patrick-stewart-on-his-lunatic-casting-as-picard/

>My wife and I were taking a course at UCLA on humour. In the arts. Tonight’s lecture was to be a reading by two people – one was Patrick Stewart.

>He came out with the lady and they were – proceeded to do some Shakespeare. And he read his first line and I went crazy. I turned to my wife I said I think I’ve found our new captain.

>We met at Gene Roddenberry’s house, Patrick pulled up in his rental car and we spent about 45 minutes together, talking. We watched Patrick drive away in his rental car to go to the airport and Gene closed the door, turned around, faced me and said, and I quote, ‘I won’t have him.’

>He wouldn’t have him and he wouldn’t tell me why. But I know why. I knew why. I knew that he had conceived of a Frenchman. And, you know, who was masculine, virile, and had a lot of hair. And Patrick didn’t fit that at all. Patrick was not so handsome, he was distinctive, and he was quite bald. Quite bald.

>I was hot to trot. I was very, very enthused about Patrick playing the role. And I kept after Gene and Gene kept fighting me off until one day we had a new producer come on the scene, and that was Rick [Berman]. Rick saw Patrick’s film and fell in love with him. As did our casting director. So the three of us were allied in the fight to get Patrick as the captain. And Gene was allied in his own fight not to have him at all. So finally I realised that the more I pushed, the more he dug his heels in.

>I made an announcement, one day, in a meeting when the subject was brought up and I said I don’t want to hear the name Patrick Stewart ever again. It’s over with Patrick Stewart, forget him. I did that on purpose to make Gene think that I’d given up.

I was rewatching DS9 and I had forgotten the Ferengi bought warp drive off another species instead of inventing it, which is actually really interesting. What could the Ferengi have had to offer in exchange? Or maybe they really are just that good at being negotiators. I'd love to see that as a standalone episode, show the Ferengi wheeling and dealing hard enough to break the light speed barrier

Also, do you think that's how the Ferengi have survived all these years? Are they just so rich they can buy off any invaders? Does customer service translate to skilled diplomacy? or is it because The Ferengi run the space-banks and space-media ?

>Are they just so rich they can buy off any invaders?

Basically yeah. I think this gets mentioned a bit in the DS9 Negus episodes.

Ferenginar might have luscious deposits of dilithium or something that a species with no prime directive equivalent traded for. Plenty of similar examples in TOS.

>or is because

Yes that also, but mostly because it seems most species have abandoned currency so the Ferengi kind of supply currency, currency exchange and whatnot between federation and non-federation groups for instance. This makes the Ferengi pretty rich on the side.

Depending how advanced they were, they may have had advanced power, weapons, engineering, indentured servants or have offered other services. The first time they turn up they're equivalent but not the same as the federation so it's possible they did a technological exchange or offered something. Maybe it was their negotiation services or they just earned the money trading.

There's a lot of very plausible explanations.

It could've been even simpler than that. We know the Klingons figured out warp drive just from reverse engineering a ship that crashed on their planet. It might not have been this big civilizational negotiation, maybe there was just like one guy with an old freighter passing through their system and they were like 'we will give you 100 fe-males to take apart your ship' and he's like 'cool, it's a piece of shit anyway'

I always wonder how honest Trek species are about their history. The vast majority of them seem to rely on semi-mythical, retconning types of history. As do, frankly, many Earth cultures today. Erdogan saying Turks first discovered America comes to mind. The Klingons, for instance, take all of that Kahless bullshit completely at face value. Including stuff like him forging his sword from a lock of his hair.

Similarly the Ferengi pretend to have been a unified culture for thousands of years, but in reality that probably means something like elevating Henry Ford to the status of religious figure years after the fact. Would have been cheap, too. All you need to do is just chop the tops off all crucifixes...

But yeah, it probably went exactly like that. A good deal for both parties involved that sucks for everyone else. A bit of a beads and mirrors kind of deal, if you will. The Romans also rolled like that when they went beyond Italy and introduced wine to the Gauls. The Gauls became unrepentent alcoholic, and were more than happy to capture people from other tribes and sell them to the Romans for precious alcohol. Which was a steal for the Romans.

That episode with Jadzia being judged by Martok's wife kind of hinted at stuff like that. Some outsider with a hint of scrutiny discovers that the Klingons are basically all complicit in the same, big lie for the sake of continuity. So if that's what's in the open, imagine what they struck from the records.

And neither of these require all sexes be involved or sexes get involved without passing genes.

So okay, yes, there could be a wide range of sexes and races with more than one reproductively viable mating configuration. I have to adjust my stance on that. But my points about Andorians and the races like that still stand.

Like why in a future where everyone is cool enough to be ok with putting bars inside of official government ships and presumably fucking your colleagues in your personal VR time would they not be cool with people taking crazy alien drugs on their off hours?

Hopefully in the new series they at least show people smoking some andorian ultra-weed or some shit out of a crazy ass space bong that needs to happen

Its likely like that syntohol. Drugs made to have the least amount of negative side effects as possible and a chemical "off switch" in case you have to cut your trip short for a red alert.

You are given an unlimited budget and a dev team comprised of anybody you can think of.

Design the perfect Star Trek game the encapsulates everything Trek.

Star Trek online could be so good if it didn't suck so bad.

Tbh, I also assumed we would be given unlimited time. In that case it's 100% feasible.

Also, no need for new sciences. We are actually not that far away from being able to make stuff similar, and even better than holodeck. Holograms, 3d printing (even of organic tissue), VR, forcefields, all that is required already exists, it's just not developed enough yet, but it can and will be.

Oh, and also AI. This is what I see as the biggest obstacle - programming such a responsive open-world setting with so few limitations on choices. Shit, today's games have even more limited dialogue options and alternative paths/endings than they used to. But I have little doubt that, given enough time and money, it can be done

Nah, we will have super-sentient AI probably decades before we can instantly fabricate matter or modulate the shape of a force-field into something like a human shape (have you ever tried to 3d print something? It does not happen quickly...foglets are a more feasible option, but that's not how the holodeck in Trek works.) There also won't be very much incentive for developing a physical holo-deck once we have full wet-ware VR.

I fully agree, that's why I said 'and even better'. However, if I were to design 'the perfect Star Trek game the encapsulates everything Trek', it would have to be a holodeck, because nothing's more gamey and startrekkie than a holodeck.

Ayyy what's good my trekkas?

So we all know Roddenberry was a massive teetotaller and totally against injecting the marijuanas, but I'm assuming since you're all on 420chan you're into the drugs.

What's your Drug of Choice while watching the Treks, or in general? Does the /ganja/ fill you up with that optimistic future vibe or do you prefer the cold alien infinites of /dis/?

Truk drug thrud general. I'm watching sober right now and need to live through you vicariously.

One thing I can say I do not recommend is mixing watching trek and /del/iriants. During a couple months when I was at the height of a pretty rough dph addiction I was also binge watching TOS nearly every time I was getting delirious. To this day all those horn blasts and shit sound like shadow-demons gnawing their way through the fabric of this reality and I swear I see shadow people hiding in corners for split seconds in certain shots. Only for TOS, honestly I specifically watch it sometimes when I miss living in perpetual psychosis. I mean I guess nightmare fuel doesn't mix well with anything, but yeah, don't do that.

I watched /1701/ tube while coming up on shrooms in that voyager episode where the doctor treats his own creator. That was pretty cool though everyone's faces started melting halfway through and I knew it'd kicked in.

TAS is canon.

Yesteryear is a time travel episode. Spock returns from an errand in the past to find he has been replaced by an Andorian. Let us say then he leaves timeline A and returns to timeline B wherein only Kirk (who was with him) knows him.

Spock is absent in B because as a boy he died during an ordeal ritual. Spock realizes that he himself was helped through this by a "cousin" that be deduces to be himself. Thus he is dead because he did not go back in time as he "originally" did. This suggests that we are actually at the second or third timeline but let us ignore that for a second.

Spock goes back, saves himself but while he is back there his childhood pet dies. This is not the same as the past that Spock A remembers. Thus when Spock A returns to the future (wherein he is alive and the Andorian is elsewhere) he is actually returning to timeline C.

Do you suppose this has any effect on Spock? Spock as a character gets progressively more "human" through TOS and TAS before going fundamentalist Vulcan for the beginning of TMP...

Maybe the original Spock was saved by JJverse Spock, who was in turn saved by the original Spock, but lost his sehlat and became a failure forever, thus dooming Vulcan. After seeing this, when he realized he was going to go back in time, he pinpointed that as the very day he became a huge puss and decided to change his fate by saving both young Spock and the sehlat.

So all together there are three Spocks--four if you count the one in Search for Spock.

Isn't it more convenient to assume that the Spock that didn't remember the death of his pet at the beginning of the episode was the errant timeline, and that the action of the episode restored the correct timeline? I know there isn't really anything to support that, but it makes the character of Spock integral across the time period before and after, whereas suggesting it's a new timeline splits his character into two branches (pre-TAS and post-TAS Sp-cock)

at least four if you count the giant one tending over a plant civilization.

Blowing my mind. So the episode starts off on line B, goes to shared timepoint X, then returns back to line A (our line) but with the B Spock.

This is a confusing episode in terms of time travel.
