Hello /1701/, dude-watching-gunsmoke here.

I recently became aware of just how very incestuous Star Trek and Gunsmoke were.

If I was assigned to Dogshit duty I'd just put all the dog turds into one (and only one) of the protein re-sequencers and tell the guy assigned to captain's bitch duty to only take food from that specific re-sequencer because the captain says "it's his favorite one."

I just found this podcast interview with Robert Beltran (Chipotle). He spends almost the entire time talking about Voyager. He has a bit of a reputation for not liking the show but the tone is different here. About the worst he has to say is that after the first two years he was bored and that the finale sucked, and he blames that on Beavis & Butthead putting all their attention on Enterprise.

The only thing this trailer really tells us is that the anthology rumor, that each season will be a different crew in a different time period, possibly with an overarching story, is likely true.

What disappointed you? It's a teaser trailer that didn't really reveal anything.

At any rate, I'm down for an anthology show. I think it could favor the more thoughtful style of Star Trek writing. Focusing on a single narrative for 15 hours would be nice. Also, if it goes on awhile, it could satisfy a lot of my longing to see the universe from X perspective. Where X is everything we suggest when we have a thread about what the next show should be.

Nuh uh. Annular (ring) warp drives are better at travelling faster in a straight line, which is what the Vulcans used them for. Paired linear drives have better manoeuvrability at warp speeds, which is what pretty much everyone else wanted them for.
Presumably they're also more accommodating to wider hull geometries than Vulcan space dildos, but that's not what dictates the type of engine you need. I think asymmetric warp fields eventually closed off the speed gap and made annular drives redundant by the 24th century anyway.

so, i've been smoking and pondering, and... well, i think it's time for a trek-show that doesn't take place on a federation ship.

imagine, if'n you will, a couple of former starfleet officers sitting in the federation's equivalent of a VFW, talking shop, lamenting the years of boredom since leaving the fleet. hijinks ensue, and these 2 officers now own a light frigate. they recruit a couple more crewmen, and go forth and space-soldier-of-fortune happens.

taking place after DS9, the Star Trek: Mercenary crew has humans, klingon(s), vulcan(s), romulans, and maybe a cardie or ferengi for the hell of it. they go about mopping up expensive problems, eliminating targets of interest, hunting bounties, etc.. throughout the first season, they're just starting out, their ship sucks ass, and they spend most of their money on fixing and upgrading the ship. season 1 finale: they're hunting a hirogen that's been terrorizing a federation colony. starfleet won't risk war or ships, so the colony hires the mercs. if the show gets shitcanned before season 2, they die. utterly. but, if the show goes for longer than a season, they take the hirogen ship.

the captain's a total perfectionist dick, war minded, profit minded, fearless, and intent on having his crew(s) being the best of the best: random assholes from around the quadrant trained and drilled to better than jem'hadar standards. the reasoning? "Kirk and Picard were soft! They felt Starfleet standard training was sufficient, that anything beyond that was unnecessary and counterproductive. They went up against enemies that were stronger, faster, and better equipped than they, and many crewmen died in every engagement. We just fought a ship three times our size, filled with the best hunters this quadrant has ever seen, and we won! We killed the Hirogen, we took their ship, and our only casualty was that Private Johnson in engineering got a boo-boo! I run you hard, I train you hard, I push you hard because our enemies are hard, and we need to be harder."

beyond season one, the company grows and eventually becomes directly involved in galactic affairs, sometimes stirring up shitstorms of galactic proportion.…

Yeah, though I'd add that Wesley suffered being a plot device/Mary Sue/crutch too often, Jake fitted into the plots rather than bent them around him. Even the episodes which were Jake centric worked because he was not a super technical genius. He was an aspiring writer who knew a little bit because of his dad. But not very much. He had a few good moments.

Wesley's best moment is probably peak performance where the role becomes very self aware (though this might be by accident) and he basically steals warp crystals because the security guard treats him with the same disdain most viewers feel. Like ugh, it's him, I'll zone out and get this over with.

Jake is just a normal dude.After Wes, I think it's good they made a young character who didn't want to join Starfleet like it's the best thing ever. His friendship with Nog was also good. it was always weird how Wes would hang out with the adult bridge crew, on a ship explicitly stated to have families living on it.

That's one of the real failing of Wes: They wanted to have their cake and eat it, too, and made him both the child character AND a member of the bridge crew. Jake not being a Starfleet dude is one of the things that stands out about him when he's in danger during the war. Especially Valiant is an episode that plays to Jake's strengths, when he's suddenly The Adult, and the kids won't listen to him.

  1. it has a continuing storyline.
  2. the characters are more layered. not just starfleet boyscouts.
  3. supporting cast members are not just redshirts.
4 the sub-plots are interesting too and make a nice change from just the war.
5. it portrays a more realistic universe which is not some idealistic disneyworld.

I could go on but that should give you an idea.

Yeah, the trapdoors are clumsy. They completely serve the overall plot and don't really take time for the new characters to be any different from their predecessors.

There's absolutely no way there wasn't enough space in the season schedule to take half an episode and develop the newbie character long enough to distract from the fact that everyone is a drop-in replacement.

The most different one was the telepath, because the second one was supposedly a shitty telepath. Never mattered though.

Well I'm one of the 3. I like Star Trek overall a lot better, but I just want to acknowledge the fact that in many ways B5 and DS9 influenced eachother, sure DS9's absorption of B5 plot elements started it, but when DS9 gets a ship to fly around in, all of a sudden B5 follows suit.

They were both good sci-fi series, and yet both left much to be desired.

Deep Space Nine definitely pulls ahead of Voyager hands down. Voyager was trying, and I love Kate Mulgrew, femklingon, security Vulcan, and better-human-personality-simulation-than-Data Doctor. (Dr. Soong was on the spectrum, yo.) But Voyager was just more of the same. It resembled a weird kind of cross between TOS and TNG.

Voyager sometimes just has spectacular acting sometimes, and in Trek tradition some of the later season episodes are directed by the cast, and DS9 happens to be the incarnation of Trek that got some of the best stage actors, some of whom turned out to be fantastic directors as well.

Babylon 5 still had good stage actors and often gave them better writing. G'Kar and the Narn stuff gets real Shakespearean at a couple of points.

Also, speaking of some weird cross between TOS and TNG. Trials and Tribble-ations. Fucking gold.

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.

Fat isn't something easily defined, it's subjective. Obesity and overweight have clinical definitions. Fat is just a term to describe something given our perspective.

There's two pictures of Rivers, I can't remember how he actually looks. In one he is just a bit chunky in the other he's overweight. Now he's hardly a colossal lardarse but in a ship in constant danger among earth's very best being anything less than "fit" would make him stand out. Compared to everyone else on Enterprise he would be fat. He would be the fattest person on board by a wide margin. Even theoretical scientists on that ship would have to be in good shape. Maybe not everyone has to be a super athlete or peak physical condition but they would all be reasonably fit.

Anyway given the context of enterprise, where the head enginerd is buff as fuck Rivers ate all the pies.
