The Doctor was still the Chief Medical Officer on Voyager. It wasn't a rank, but it did count as a "military" position, as he had the authority to put people on medical leave.

OP missed a lot of characters out. Though only a few major ones admittedly. Shit loads of people who never appear but are definitely there on the enterprise and DS9 that aren't military. Let alone on the planet of the week.

It would be navy tales in space though as starfleet seems to be the professional military for the federation. All you need is ground troops and then your space ships which can also do orbital and bombardment, fly through the sky (with ace pilots like Paris and Riker), land, go underwater (thanks based structural integrity field, also sub mariner Paris) and almost instant transportation of troops (good old security though most starfleet officer have some combat training, I mean fuck, even Doctor/Commander Crusher has been a black ops operator by the end of the series) and you bet specialised troop transport ships have a fuckload of transporter throughput. Starfleet is the entire armed forces. And the diplomatic and peace corps.

Starfleet is a degree course, that's time for military training but also expertise in science, engineering, history, diplomacy etc. It is more the the military, it's got it's own science (technology but it's also at the forefront of space exploration and astophysics) and engineering departments. Special intelligence. And it's fairly logical it's similar in other cultures. Because star treks are always set on frontiers rather than well explored and settled heartlands there's a lot less civilian traffic. There's probably tourists and commuters in some of the more established sectors but Star Treks will deal primary with the forward facing space agencies of the federation facing the forward facing space agencies of other cultures. So why would that it's primarily starfleet be that surprising?

That's the thing. People are pining for a franchise that had been completely driven into the ground with 11 years of generally sub-par TV seasons Though still with a lot of gems thrown in, one decent sci-fi action movie, and 3 pretty bad sci-fi action movies.

Now, was JJ Trek the right answer? Yes and no. It was a clean break from Nemesis. It acknowledged the original canon, while setting itself apart from it in nearly every way possible. ST09 got the characterizations pretty good. I even think it FELT a little bit like TOS. Not the TOS movies, but the TV show, and not in an Insurrection way. It was campy sci-fi schlock, but 2015 campy sci-fi schlock with a Star Trek finish.

Most importantly though, it showed the executives that the Star Trek brand is still highly profitable. Meaning they're more likely to pursue production of new material. TV series is where Trek will find its roots, anyway, not on the big screen. Hopefully soon after the third movie here...which is a whole different bag of worms and might well be the worst of the 3 simply because of all the production problems.

JJ Trek is good because it brought Star Trek from being something stale and boring to being something cool and hip. The stuff made after TNG tried to capitalize on TNGs success but couldnt capture a wider audience. The only issue I have JJTrek is its shallow and superficial compared to the old shows and films that were meaniningful and thought provoking in addition to being exciting. But theyre still cool movies.

Because you know, fuck it, why not?

How come the Federation, Humans in particular, say, ever try to share their warrior cultures with the Klingons? Or the more war-like aspects of humanity's music and other media? I mean, just how do you think your average Klingon warrior would've responded to fucking Vikings? or Samurai? To cultures that valued honor and keeping oaths and dying gloriously in battle above all else?

And surely, as is displayed by the Maquis and the Federation when shit goes sideways, there has to be some Humans out there that still display warrior-like aspects in their life. I mean personally I think the Klingons would've fucking loved ancient Scandinavian/Viking culture. Ragnarok, Valhalla, dying in battle without fear in your heart and with a weapon in your hand, upholding whatever oath you have taken to your death because to break an oath was one of the worst fucking things imaginable, the whole fucking speel. Never once did any Human afaik attempt to bridge that gap. Was it because Humans are for the most part, loathe to admit they were ever warriors?

And I can't be the only one who thinks Klingons would've responded positively to fucking METAL music, right?

I mean fucking listen to this shit, I'm sure Klingons would love it. Lyrics are in the video for those without an ear for metal.

Doubtful. Most of the Nazi victories were against incredibly weak enemies, they failed every time they directly attacked anyone of note, and they're most known for dishonorably massacring civilians like cattle instead of killing them honorably in battle.

Romulans, on the other hand, would look upon the Nazis favorably, with the exception of Hitler's numerous tactical blunders.

Yeah, before anyone argues that. Look at the British army. In the 1930s they ran a wargame/simulation in which they tested the new fangled "tanks" out. They dominated. High command looked at the results and said "No, we need cavalry". Half the reason the battle of Britain wasn't a loss was because we had a bunch of furious Polish veterans with actual combat experience (and so no mortality rate when performing standard landings due to lack of training) with us. The 303 would have climbed on to the cliffs of Dover and hurled themselves at the germans if they hadn't been given craft I reckon. The Klingons would love them.

Also I dunno about metal. Klingons love prune juice too. They see war very differently to us I imagine. They'd probably go to war to the sound of moonlight sonata rather than war ensemble.

Humans aren't really warriors. We spent millions of years avoiding predators and for a while we'd run down our prey and chase them to death but we have always used weapons and wits. We outbred neanderthal who was big, stocky, tough quite Klingon by being smaller, chucking out our young less developed (breeding quicker), needing less food and being better at thinking outside the box (ice age comes in, suddenly the huge Neanderthals are starving while Homo Sapiens is punching holes in ice and fishing and needs less food anyway). The klingons would have gone extinct on earth the same way we would have gone extinct on their home world, because evolution is entirely situational and obviously they didn't face an ice age at such a key point while a more adaptable competitor lurked in the wings.

Just live another 30 years and there's a pretty good chance your dream will become a reality. VR is in it's infancy now, but it's only going to get better at a faster and faster rate as it becomes more and more socially acceptable decide to drop out of society and live in the digital world instead.

I'd put good money on the future (not 4chan) turning out like this: society as a whole decides you don't have to "earn your keep" to merely exist in society, instead giving you the option to plug in to the matrix. The only catch is all the matrix-heads get sterilized and don't reproduce. Boom. Solve the overpopulation crisis AND literally everyone gets what they want because it's all possible via virtual reality.

The TNG Romulans were total KGB/USSR, not Nazis. Inciting civil wars in neighboring Empires and playing cat and mouse with the Federation. I also don't think they were about genocide, though they had no qualms about using slave labor.

Though I think they expertly tweaked real things for TNG, from the more straightforward 1:1 idea of the Klingons being the USSR and the Federation being some kind of UN/NATO force. The Klingons pulled a hard turn somewhere during the TOS Movies I think. They transitioned from more a more intellectual warrior culture to a completely frothing at the mouth warrior culture. Duras always struck me as more of a TOS Klingon type figure. They're probably the same ones who traded the Romulans a bunch of D-7s for the Romulans cloaking technology (must have had a Ferengi broker that deal).

If anything the best parallels to the Nazis and WW2 in general are definitely the Dominion. In the way that Nazi fascism is kind of 180° from American liberalism*, the Dominion was 180° from the Federation. They both come to you, express interest in your culture, ask you to join their organization. They both employ strong diplomats and have the top technology and weapons. The difference is that the Federation has requirements that races want and the Dominion will come in and kill you if you say no. Add into that the Cardassians penchant for light to moderate ethnic cleansing and you get a potent blend.

The Borg are described by Q as "the ultimate user." They're a critique on consumer society and its thirst for the newest and latest gadget. Not Communism. They're like the android/apple fanboy who doesn't even talk to you unless you have the right OS running on your phone.. A shame they became space vampires, but it's another one of Star Trek's famous prophecies about the future. Especially in light of the rise of "wearables." What's Hugh got on his face there? It's the new Apple iPatch of course.

They gave each race their own vaguely analogous traits to certain Human civilizations but moved around some of the parts. So the stories and ideas they present are different but still familiar. One re…

The pilot, taken as its own movie, is better than all the TNG movies, except perhaps First Contact.

You also forgot 'Shuttlepod One'.

It's generally accepted that every time Data "misunderstands humans" he's trolling, right? He always has this smug little smirk that tips me off. My friend argues that he's actually socially retarded, like a high-functioning autist. It's never made clear in the series and I can't find anything concrete one way or the other on the net.

As for the thread's general intent, I'd be happy to hear your incorrect opinions of best character.

Humanity's real skill is that everyone else feels they're benefitting from it. I think in fairness they genuinely do want everyone to be on the winning team, they just believe it's best done by joining them. I think one of the things that makes the borg so threatening is that they have a similar philosophy, they just are willing to take it that much further and be that much more forceful. I imagine even Picard, someone genuinely good hearted reckons everyone will eventually decide to join the federation one day and join the big galactic love fest.

Humans aren't as far past their dark days as Picard believes though, there's plenty of evil people even in starfleet (though a lot more "bad guys" within it are usually damaged people rather than having some agenda, like "the wounded" or "drumhead".

I think data is often oblivious but sometimes he plays it up. Like he knows that's his rep so he uses it as a shield sometimes. Just sparingly though to keep it credible. He doesn't get humans but he's still a genius.

From what I've gleaned Voyager is the next best series after TNG. Instead of only having TNG play in the tamia.tv channel which I'm sure many of us have seen all the way through multiple times, I say we either start playing Voyager straight through or pepper in a few of the known good/important story-wise episodes from that series.

I'm not qualified to give any suggestions as to what the good eps are cause I've never seen it myself, but I did find this handy website that shows the IMDB rating on a graph: graphtv.kevinformatics.com/

But then again as far as I know we don't have a reliable source of all the episodes, so making a list of the better ones might be a good idea.

I assume you directly translated this from: I speak some...
I'm not 100% sure but it could be grammatically correct, however it isn't speaking language, a proper sentence would be:
"Ik spreek een beetje Nederlands." (een beetje = a bit of)
Sommige is somewhat more specific, if I would translate it back to English I'd probably use "some of".

Do you have any specific recommendations for Dutch media? As far as I know, I don't get any Dutch television stations. If there's anything I can find online (including pirated stuff) then it would certainly help me learn.

>Sommige is somewhat more specific, if I would translate it back to English I'd probably use "some of".
Thanks for the correction. "Ik spreek weinig Nederlands." came to mind, but I thought that it would have the connotation that I knew almost no Dutch at all so I was trying to think of another word to use.

Didn't think too far ahead, most Dutch media stuff isn't very good, and hardly anything is exported (except for shitty formats like big brother and such). But I found a few decent ones.

This is a pretty funny movie though, which seems to have subs:

Zwartboek ww2 movie, got some international praise: https://kickass.to/black-book-zwartboek-2006-720p-ita-dut-x264-sub-eng-bluray-t10388934.html


I also found this, it's a pretty interesting analysis of the whole Kony 2012 fuckery, and you can watch it right away.

There sadly aren't many good shows or series though, and they're harder to find than movies.

Lastly check out this list (or google) and see what tickles your fancy and try to find a torrent with Eng subs:

I don't understand, in a future where you can be scanned by computer and clothing made instantly to the specifications of your measurements, why would there be anyone acting as a tailor?

No, just high and quoting some Grand Buffet lyrics for no reason, other than they fit the theme of microwaving food.

I think we are all under the assumption that all star trek crews are having sex with each other pretty much 26 hours a day.

I started my Star Trek "marathon" with ENT because it's hard for me to feel into a pre 80s TV series.

I started with TOS today and it's very "slow" compared to ENT. I am into 4 episodes and it's really tiring to follow the plot.

Should I skip TOS for now and continue with TNG?

Just wait until you get to the US Constitution episode. People who think TOS is good are head-banging straitjacket-wearing schizophrenics.

This. So much this.

There are more gems in TOS than there are turds. It's about as hit-and-miss as the first three seasons of any Trek series.

And at least TOS didn't have:

Space Africans (TNG: Code of Honor)
Crew is too busy having orgies to read the local laws and Wesley is nearly executed (TNG: Justice)
Dr. Crusher and her grandmother having sex with a ghost candle (TNG: Sub Rosa)
A Character whose story arc was never finished is hastily ended in a single episode many seasons later (TNG: Journey's End)
An entire episode of recycled footage (TNG: Shades of Gray)
The writers go on strike (TNG: Masks)
45 Minutes of O'Brien and Keiko trying to care for a mentally handicapped 8-year-old turned 18-year-old (DS9: Time's Orphan)
Quark getting a sex change (DS9: Profit and Lace)
