Unfortunately, if it's anything like the standard legal framework around a Hollywood show, if they call it Star Trek: Discovery and use any of the pre-production materials, all of the attached actors contracts might still apply and could sue if their contractual obligations aren't met. Most likely they would just have to keep whatever has already been shot and then change course with it as they saw fit, keeping the same cast and theme but changing the plot and tone or whatever.

Maybe they would just try to do it their own way, maybe they would wrap up the 'Discovery' story line as like a one season mini-series and start a new production, who knows? Any outcome would be better than CBS driving it into the ground.

Just watched the season finale of Season 4.

Overall, great episode. The crew all felt really authentic, even with Worf starting to fit in. The crew is excellent with the addition of Worf. I posted in the other thread about the majority of the characters feeling kinda dry (not that it took away from the drama or story) but it just feels like he compliments the rest of the crew so well.
But yeah this episode was great. The campy jokes in the first few minutes like Worf asking if Dax's hosts have always been this annoying and making fun of Kira sneezing because she's pregnant. It all felt pretty real, and was pretty funny.
And of course, Odo episodes are always great. Honestly, I think I find him to be the most compelling character of this series. His story is so interesting and original, and he is so well performed.
This episode was just so whole because it had the whole crew, and even plenty of Garak.

Okay. So I know you took a look at the title and your wondering why. Let me explain before you turn around and arm the photon's. See in a world as big as outlandish as star trek is. It needs normal characters. People who seem much more well, basic.

Think about it. Star trek is filled with people who have can accept making universe changing decisions. Obrien is so diffrent, he does things out of a sense of duty more than anything. He cares about his family. He isn't concered with the layers behind everything.

And that's what makes him such a great foil. Against the back drop of star trek where drastic universe changing things happen on an episode by episode basis its nice to see someone just have simple family problems. And while this doesn't make him the most interesting character, it makes him an important element.

Its easy to forget that even in a world where humanity has moved on, improved so much, that people are still very much people. That people can live relatively normal lives (never mind the random perils of space thats just part of working for startfleet). Sure, there's a little bit of this with a lot of trek characters, but miles is different.

What people forget is that so many of the other charters in trek that we get to see in basic capacities are less than basic people. Captains and their ilk have this romanticism to them, that's not obrien at all. Piccard will tell her we'll always have paris, and a guy like miles will tell her shes a swell girl.

It's important to note that the humanization of treks world becomes a little more plausible through someone like miles. That even if he's not that exciting that he helps step the stage for believability. Its a big universe but, hey someones gotta be at home arguing with their wife.

All shows need a relatable character. O'Brien does that well. It's one thing to talk of philosophy or get caught up in gritty shit all the time, but characters like O'Brien show us that at the end of the day there are still regular people doing regular things like the extras in the background. He just wants his family and to do his job and go home. Not everybody is some idealist and he really shows a more pragmatic side to things. Just a common sense kinda dude who wants to live his life. He's in Starfleet so I'm sure he knows all about those principles and values, but people can afford to be that idealistic because everymen like O'Brien are doing the grunt work and using common sense to get shit done rather than worrying about the moral implications of everything, or being involved in espionage and other shit.

Reminds me of Scotty in that sense. Just a regular dude who's doing his job to get shit done and ya gotta respect that when most characters are there to make some kind of point.

I know I'd be broccoli. I even hid from real life in computer games and it didn't make things better. I had to rescue myself, in real life there's no Picard and Geordie to compassion you back to sanity. I guess that's the real evolution of humanity in star trek. People do give a fuck about each other, even the losers like us get a chance to contribute their value.

And it's the same with O'Brien. He is an ordinary guy but he's a genius and master tactician. He's relatable but he still is exceptionally talented and deserves to be there. But he's grounded and knows what he likes.

I mean O'Brien still grew up working class but in modern society that's it. In the 24th century it took 40 years but eventually he got the recognition he deserved and the opportunity to use his talent.

Also his wife is awful. No.

O'Brien reminds me of my father. Same kind of attitude, and the same sort of skillset. My father can also fix everything he gets his hands on, often better than the professionals. O'Brien has his kayaking, my father rides dirtbikes. Occasionally he falls off and comes back black and blue. Other people his age are beginning to worry about breaking hips.

Me, I'm more of a Barclay, too. Though I used to identify with Data a lot, because muh autism. But I'm seeing more and more in Worf, and beginning to appreciate his trouble of being between different worlds, and how it often just means that he is different. Worf is Worf, and a lot of his episodes are about him balancing his internal sense of honour between what the world expects. The joke is that Worf is permanently disgruntled... and he is. But I think that's what I like about him.

Weird, how on rewatching you suddenly start liking characters you never really liked. Already had it with Kira, Odo too. It's good that they brought Worf to DS9. He really shone, there, while on TNG he was actually kind of weak.

Due to spending too much time on the internet on political debates or talking about social justice for the longest time my entire outlook on life was fucked up, only in black and white. After watching a lot of Star Trek over the past few months, I feel like I'm not really weird for thinking that there's hope.

I mean yeah we probably won't ever have starships or anything like that, but it's really the fact that there is something out there that says that humanity has good instead of everyone and their mother saying that humanity sucks and will kill themselves, regardless of whether it's true or they're just saying it so senpai can notice them and have sex with them.

Maybe it was because it was a different era but I dunno I guess I'm just tired of seeing pessimism everywhere and shit. I'm not saying we should vomit rainbows 24/7 but we shouldn't be vomitting shit 24/7 either.

I don't know what else to say but thanks Roddenberry for creating this magnificent franchise.

Just watched Voyager "Coda". That episode is weird. We never find out what that being was. He gets pissed and says he'll consume Janeway one day, but is it responsible for all near death experiences? What if you have no chance to come back to life; does it get you? Seems pretty dark that in Star Trek there is the possibility that when you die you just get consumed by some weird alien being. Any kind of theories about what it was or means for the Trek universe?

Voyager subtly plays with the idea that different species go to an afterlife specific to them (it's not the most original idea, it's like saying that Christians go to Christian heaven, Muslims go to Muslim heaven, etc.)

Although in the same way it kind of pulls the punch, leaving it up to you to decide whether it's suggesting this is what actually happens to people when they die, or just that people's expectations build a heaven in the near-death state (which is the issue in real life too) :

>B'Elanna goes to Klingon hell, gets angry
>Neelix DOESN'T go to the Great Forest, is greatly disappointed
>Those aliens who, when they died, went to live in that planet's rings as energy

And then of course 'Coda'...so we can say that either there is or isn't an afterlife in Star Trek, but if there is, each species/religion has a unique one. So that means either that all humans are always only eaten by the Coda dude -- that our afterlife in particular and perhaps afterlives in general are actually bunk and just ways for energetic beings to eat our life force after we're done with it...

...or that (and this is the one I prefer) that was just some freaky Delta quadrant alien who attacked Janeway in particular, and all the stuff he said was just lies to trick her.

This guy: True eventual devourer of your immortal soul or just a lying dipshit -- you decide.

I have a secret theory that Neelix is actually the Caretaker Array alien, and that he spends his many many many years spying on aliens across the galaxy, and abducts ships for the purpose of riding them back all the way to their home system. Everything that happens in Voyager that is weird and has no real explanation is just Neelix fucking with them to make things interesting.

So for this episode, he was basically doing the Nagilum thing to learn about how each species on Voyager would deal with experiencing their particular afterlife.

God I'm horrible at trivia even for stuff that I've watched a million and a half times.

> Get Beltran going, and he'll grumble about just about anything related to Star Trek.
> He even rails against the show's "Prime Directive," a guiding principle that prohibits Starfleet characters from interfering with the development of alien civilizations.
>"The idea of leaving any species to die in its own filth when you have the ability to help them, just because you wanna let them get through their normal evolutionary processes is bunk -- it's a bunch of fascist crap," he said.


Obviously none of us care what Robert Beltran thinks, I'm using the article as more of a framing device for a larger discussion about the Prime Directive. Personally I agree with his opinion and kind of felt vindicated when I saw this story. I never liked the Prime Directive, especially how they always try to portray it as some noble principle when it's literally just "fuck you, I got mine" enshrined in law.

technological uplifting isn't the only part of the Prime Directive though.

>This conceptual law applies particularly to civilizations which are below a certain threshold of technological, scientific and cultural development; preventing starship crews from using their superior technology to impose their own values or ideals on them.

It's fitting that Robert Beltran would think less of the prime directive given how Chipotle was a Maquis. More importantly, watch the intro to VOY season 2 episode 14. He explains his view a bit.

I'd never thought about klingons love of blades, I just assumed it was to do with it being showy and dramatic as befits their culture. However what you're saying also makes perfect sense. It's one of those things which doesn't contradict or re write anything and actually further explains something so it's going in my head canon.
