So as you may have heard, there are rumors about Tarantino directing the next Trek movie. He pitched the idea to Abrams and it was well recieved or something?

and now Patrick Stewart announced that if Tarantino directs it, he wants to be in it.

not trying to get my hopes up, but this could actually be pretty darn good. Theories? Hopes? Will this be in the Kelvin timeline? I am looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

Yeah but think of all the variety in the TOS movies. TMP is a 70's trippy visuals fest. Wrath of Khan is almost Shakespearean, Star Trek 4 is a straight up comedy.
Undiscovered Country is probably the most "Star Trek" out of all of them.

But for how bad some of the TOS movies are, they'll never be as bad as the TNG movies. Even when the TNG movies are good, they're not good.

Lol that's not true at all. It would be hard to make a more wrong statement than this, but I bet if this discussion keeps going you might.

First off, Tarantino isn't about people being their worst, it's about perspectives of different people from different walks of life, sometimes bad, sometimes good but mostly morally ambiguous. The Hateful 8 is a good example of this.

Star Trek isn't about people being perfect. If it was, there would be a lot of great episodes that would have been deleted out of the canon. And pretty much all of Deep Space 9. It's about humanity's flaws and its endless possibilities. If the flaws weren't being explored it would be a pretty fucking boring show.

So do you have anything real to say or are you just gonna keep crying about this because your mind can't handle non black and white media?
I bet you decry Tarantino because he "glorifies violence" just like that reporter lady that tried to corner him in an interview but ended up getting assblasted verbally.

the real torch-passing wasn't was 6, where Kirk learned to Picard

1 is Phase II Almost. 5 is the only true and honest rock climbing god punching ass staring TOS Trek. 2 is a grimderp militarized Trek fanfic like DS9 but I kid and 3 is an okay sequel to 2. 4 might as well be the Disorderlies, but it's the TOS bridge crew instead of The Fat Boys.

I feel we got really lucky with Undiscovered Country. When I was younger I always liked Star Trek II more because of all the ship-on-ship space navy fighting scenes, but Star Trek VI is one of the best endings to a film series there has been.

But it isn't just a great movie, it's a historical accounting of the events that lead up to The Next Generation. Kirk helped stop a plot to goad the Klingons into starting a suicidal war. Kirk's final act as captain of the Enterprise was to save his arch nemesis.

They ended TOS with Kirk evolving to Picard levels of diplomacy. They unintentionally made the perfect crossover Trek movie while finishing out the TOS series.

So yeah, here is the thing though....JJ had to do a reboot and shoot the same shit as TOS, because that is what the money guys felt was safest.

Finance guys are the biggest reason we get rehashed shit in our media. They don't want to take a gamble. They want as sure a thing as possible. So they go and do some rough math and figure, "Well, The Wrath of Khan did so many million. We could probably make this much off it globally then. Known quantity. Do it!" And they pour hundreds of millions into these films. I mean, films cost a fucking fortune. Even an "indie," can hit $8 million. Shit, The Room cost $5 million back in the late 90s or whatever. These guys demand "safe" properties since these are investments to them, not works of art. So we get more shit like Baywatch : The Movie (remember, that show was literally world-wide and made a ton of money,) because nostalgia is a safe bet. Things like, I dunno...Phantom Thread, which costs a lot less, I am sure, have to struggle to get made because of this shit-tier capitalist engine driving Hollywood. Fuck, the only ones who are making decent shit seem to be the streaming services, and that is because they are funded as tech companies and on a different model than the Hollywood studio system.

PS - 2017 was one of the shittiest years for movie attendance. We all stayed home and watched Tits and Dragons instead of Explodey McTransformer Pants - THE IMAX 9D XPERIENCE!

>People nitpicking mushroom-drives and what spacing does, but have no problem with the fact that STD inherited an implausible mirror-universe where all the same people are born and rise to roughly the same positions of power and build the same ships.

Anything can happen in the universe EXCEPT in every universe you sleep with the same people at the exact same time in order to conceive the exact same people in. So if Michael Burnum is really dead in the mirror universe that means Michael Burnum in the main universe never has any children OR they've both had a child already. So I think that she isn't really dead because I think that Burnum is the great great grandmother of Reginald Barclay who, in the mirror universe, is the Terran responsible for aubergine powered body cloaking devices.

>bad finance people
As a finance person I think the general large scale mass media model of taking the laziest route is not sustainable. A good accountant looks at sustainability. By not putting anything back, you're not only failing to improve society but you're causing people to be bitter and cynical and make less and less effort. Eventually they get so shy of being stung they stop buying tickets and use their money for other things.

But lazy short term profit drives a lot of capitalist industry.

Watched the Pilot, have some thoughts.

On the visuals, they are too busy for me. It seems like everything so over-designed that it looks more like a high-tech version of 40k then Star Trek, which always to me, was nicely understated in much of its looks. The seemingly religious reverence for lens flare is also worn out its welcome, back in the rebooted Star Trek movie.

Characters? Seem good. Bit worried the show might start bending backwards for Michael but that's not happened, and that's just a worry from how I've seen other main characters done in Star Trek. I also don't like that she seems to be the only focus, but that might because we're doing a build up to Discovery proper, and the new crew.

By far my biggest problem is the setting. How in the fuck does ANY of this fit pre-TOS? In DS9 holocommunication was literally invented (and scrapped) in the middle of the series and here its just casual tech, before as far as I know, the holodeck even bloody exists! You also have Michael's backstory which is so fucking shlock it was banned in Fan-fiction! Then you have the mammoth continuity problems that this show is going to cause. You think Worf, a fairly religious Klingon might have said something about a religious sect attempting to reunite the houses, claimed to have the reincarnation of Kaheless (Which, again, doesn't seem to have been a thing for Klingons) and had radically different ideas on the treatment of bodies?

I'm so sick of TOS naval gazing in Star Trek. Almost all my major problems could be easily solved by setting the show post VOY/DS9 (it'd easily explain the radical shift in behavior in the Klingon). Just more big corporations jerking themselves off and playing it safe.

According to Prof Google, this guy was on some show with Brett Butler (there's a name from the fucking 90s....) and literally ended up quitting because she was clinically insane on set and shit. Then, he would get hounded about THAT thing whenever he tried to do some publicity or get roles, so he ended up quitting the industry and playing in some shitty bands and then eventually co-owning some vegan restaurant. I mean, it sounds like it could have gone worse for him. Apparently the Brett Butler shit was crazy and he was like 12 at the time. Imagine having to be exposed to a human trainwreck for money at the age of 12. Yikes!

It's really sad that he died, he lived a good life though, someone to be admired for sure. I hope I can achieve a quarter as much in the next year and a half before I turn 33

I too had a problem with this.

This is what we decided: it was explained in a deleted scene

Here are some ways you could explain it

<spoiler> 1. they all play infinity, so it is gathering personality information then
2. their personalities and knowledge are based on one basic framework, for example, his own, and then huge chunks of information and memory are swapped out using freely available information from social media, creating a sense of their being many distinct individuals, especially when added to the genetic differences that can affect temperament
3. the wizard did it

Okay so if all you've seen is DIS and Orville then HALT HAMMERZEIT

I mean watch TNG. First couple of seasons are hit and miss but bear with it, during season 2 you'll see some episodes which show you what it's capable of.

Once you've done that you've got two directions to go in. DS9 is darker and edgier but is about ideals being tested not broken and ignored. It examines the trek premise and throws in continuity and character development. The other way is to the original series. It's janky due to the art of TV still being in it's early stages and other artifacts of its time but a lot of the episodes reward your patience immensely. There are some episodes which just fucking pound you in every feeling (balance of terror for example) and some which just make you "wut" in the most satisfying way. I'd probably say do TOS second and DS9 3rd. DS9 will feel slick and modern compared to TNG but compared to TOS it will make it more of a treat. It's another slightly slow to start series but it starts about where TNG was in season 2 rather than having a season 1.

After that VOY and ENT are a bit of a let down. VOY has it's moments. ENT starts weak and was just hitting its stride when it was shitcanned. There's a complicated story in the studio but season 4 at least is great. It's this which is really the only reason we have to hope that DIS will come good. Even ENT was good shit by season 4.

Or you can just sit in the trektube and watch everything for a few weeks until you've seen it all.

>Comparisons have been drawn between Seth MacFarlane's The Orville and Star Trek: Discovery, but MacFarlane believes that his show fills the "void" left behind by classic Star Trek. I kind of miss the forward-thinking, aspirational, optimistic place in science fiction that Star Trek used to occupy," "I think there's some space for the aspirational blueprint of what we could do if we get our shit together, and that's something that's been missing for me for a while."And again, it's something that meant a lot to me when I was a kid, that Star Trek did, and this is sort of an attempt to kind of fill that void in the genre."

>"I think [discovery has] chosen to go in a different direction which has worked very well for them in recent years, but what has happened is that it's left open a space that has been relatively unoccupied for a while in the genre. "So for me, it's a space that's kind of waiting to be filled in this day and age when we're getting a lot of dystopian science fiction, a lot of which is great and very entertaining, but it can't all be The Hunger Games." MacFarlane added: "It can't all be the nightmare scenario.


>"To correct a bit of misreporting: No, there won't be an Orville/Family Guy crossover, and yes, The Orville season 2 will arrive later this year,"

>Due to scheduling issues, the first season of the show was cut short by one episode to 12, but that 'lost' episode is now expected to air with the second season, with MacFarlane also saying that he expects to do "at least" 14 episodes. "I'd rather do fewer episodes and have them be better content-wise than do 22 and have them be filler," he explained at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

>As for what we can expect from season two's missions for the USS Orville crew, MacFarlane wants to include more science-fiction elements, citing the season one episode 'Into the Fold' – which saw Dr Claire Finn and Isaac trapped on a planet alone – as an example that the show's universe can succeed with more sci-fi.

>"What we found was that we can lean a little more heavier into the science fiction and not have to worry so much about knocking out a joke every page. The show is an hour and really can, and wants to, service its storytelling in a way that makes it a priority. The jokes come as they come, the comedy comes as it comes."

Bullshit, while the Dominion war was a continuous theme that unified the series, it used that premise to explore themes that the other shows were afraid to touch on too often or at all in a star trek way. The two parter where Sisko comes back to Earth to help deal with possible dominion infiltration was a good exploration of the balance between privacy and security. The stuff with section 31 was a similar moral conflict, security vs morality. There were individual episodes that did classicy star trek stuff too. The Visitor, obviously, was an inner light style episodes. The episode where Sisko and O'Brien get stranded on that planet with the techno-phobic cult leader and explores the idea of loyalty to the uniform vs acceptance of what could have become the new normal. There was plenty of Cheesy trek stuff too, like with the episode where the runabout flies through the that one anomaly and becomes shrunk and they explore the impact that has on their ability to interact with their environment. That's just off the top of my head, if we went through memory alpha I know we could find an even greater variety of both cheese and not cheese good Trek-theme episodes, both directly related to the war and not.

DS9 was Trek, it's just that a lot of people have a very limited definition of what Trek Can be. It's a couple of things, but mostly it's people using their wits and technical know how to overcome the odds against a seemingly superior foe and attempt to maintain their idealism along the way, that's Star Trek. And you can do that just as effectively against the concept of war as against a literal god-alien who captures the ship for a single episode.

When I can call events in Black Mirror I get the distinct impression that Charlie Brooker is feeding it to me intentionally and that it's actually just simple but good narrative weaving.
Then it gets taken somewhere else, and while events were foreshadowed you never called how impactful it was going to be.

That's good writing. Not trying to outsmart the audience or trick them. Except into feeling sadder than they expected.

Discovery? Who knows. Terrible writing elevated by good execution? Excellent writing damaged by execution? I can't fuckin' tell.

More like Eddington 0.1. DS9 eased us into Eddington and the betrayal was a surprise. Eddington was no one special until he became someone special. STD dropped this twit into the middle of the inner circle because the plot needed it, not because he actually belonged there and was a natural fit. We never wondered why Eddington was positioned where he was. With Twit we questioned it from the start just like we question most of the show - the characters are making incoherent decisions to serve the plot.

I'm not watching the second half of the season. The first half has already shown me just what to expect. STD is like that one guy in a circle of friends where people try to assure that "he's not that bad" and "he's an acquired taste" which is just code for "after a while it bothers you less when he shits in your mouth in front of everybody and laughs at you." Fuck off, Discovery. You're a leech and you don't belong here.

The first episode of the second half of the season has probably been the best of the season. It's not great, It's not really even good. But I'll keep watching to see if it makes a turn.
But even if the rest of the season is good, it still won't redeem the horrible start to the show though.

Those lunatics who are building a to-scale 1701-D Enterprise using the Unreal 4 engine have posted an update video. It looks fucking amazeballs. The shuttlecraft are flyable and that includes a runabout. And they optimized a bunch of graphics shit. Check it out.

How resource intensive this would be for dozens of NPCs is a different matter but it's obviously not that far away.

The video is hilarious though. The generational tests and the simulated Takeshi's castle bridge ball with the fat dude beat the bird being defeated by jupiter though.

He's literally the best barber in starfleet, being a Bolian he has always lusted for what he can never have: real hair. He is a consummate artist, a master of his craft. He put on a lot of weight since the early seasons though..

Any of you guys heard about this?

Crowdfunded sci fi show that is to include
>Robert Picardo
>Doug Jones
>Mira Furlan (B5)
>Bruce Boxleitner (B5)
>Bill Mumy (B5)
>Michael Harney (OITNB)
And quite a few more interesting cast members.
Space Command is the story of Captain Jack Kemmer and his stalwart crew aboard a starship vessel called The Paladin. In the first installment, Space Command: Redemption, Captain Kemmer rescues ex-archeologist Vonn O'Dara high above Mars, setting into motion a revolution that changes galactic history.

Sorry, not trying to shill super hard, I just stumbled across this and thought this could be pretty cool, and figured some of y'all might also.

Recently there's a short film called The Candidate on youtube that he was in (search "dust the candidate"). I really enjoy him in season 5 of stargate Atlantis. Also he was really dope in an old episode of Masters of Horror called "homecoming".

The way Star Trek Continues kept the spirit of 60's Star Trek alive this Marc Zicree guy really endeavors to keep that 90's TV show spirit alive. I might hate this.

But I'm really interested to know where that crowd of creators would take things without censorship or network meddling.

Not even 90's really, I should say. Just like, generally retro. It looks like its drawing all sorts of aesthetics from the 70's 80's and 90's.

I'll check it out. Sadly, if it has been released in the US, UK, IRE, Aus, or NZ since, idk, the late 70's to early 80's I've pretty much seen it all as far as sci-fi and pseudo-sci-fi goes. I work a lot, generally about 65-70 hours a week every week with a half day off thrown in here and there and I work odd hours so I am mostly home late at night without much else to do and have watched pretty much everything out there at the moment to the point where I've got what few new shows pass for sci-fi these days to watch as they air and then its just rewatching shows I've seen multiple times.

Just recently finished rewatches of Trek, Bab5, Space A&B, Farscape, Stargate, Andromeda, and Sliders. I think I'm going for a Space Precinct rewatch next.

Yeah, I've seen the show, movie, and the fan edit(which is pretty good) pretty much anything that has came out in the US, UK, NZ, or Aus since the 90's I've seen and most everything between the mid-late 70's to early 80's as well so I'm always on the lookout for something new. When you work 70 hours a week 6 1/2-7 days a week and are only off is the wee hours there isn't much else to do but watch TV and I've always been a huge sci-fi fan. I tend to draw the line at the original V/TOS era because earlier than that and its just too dated for me for the most part though there are a few exceptions.

Currently trying to get hold of and watch all of the trek fan stuff but its proving to be difficult to locate all of them now.
