Q being the kind of entity that he is, capable of moving through reality and time etc. He's probably been into the future to see what far distant humanity is like, (he appears to infer as much when he first appears in voyager at least), so from his perspective, he knows that human beings are going to be ascendant in the future. So he goes "back in time" to test them to get a better sense of what they were to gain a sense of what they are in the future.

In the TNG finale Q says that the real frontier of exploration isn't of space, but of experience. What Star Trek episodes have premises based on the most interesting conceptual questions of self aware existence?

Stuff like "DS9 Hard Time" where the premise basically is "I know for a fact that I would kill a person if I was under duress, but I haven't actually killed anyone, am I a bad person?", that's some mind bending twilight zone shit. What other eps are good like that?

Yo, I swear I thought picard was sucking on a glass flower in this pic

I don't mean to play into that same theme, but DS9's "Hard Time" was truly a mind flip. The chief breaking into an emergency weapons locker, holding the phaser in his hand, being like 'yeah, this is happening', and then putting it up to his head was some crazy shit. And then me, pondering all the people I know who had done time and being like 'yup, sounds about right'

I saw Colm Meaney at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

I don't know why I keep watching it, the writing is terrible and there's maybe one or two decent to good episodes per season.

Picard feels like they took some fan notes for Season 2 and it's a much better show this time around.

It's pretty well known by now that Archer's Theme was the original ENT intro theme before Faith of the Heart and is a far better theme but I've just started a rewatch and I noticed that in the first episode you can even hear them using parts of Archer's Theme in key moments. Really such a shame they fucked it over and fucked up the intro video by failing to include, at the very least, Gagarin and Sputnik but that's a different topic. Anyway in case anyone hasn't seen the intro with the original theme here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-oRAcb6YaE but I was mostly just interested to notice it elsewhere.

Good idea, one of the main characters on the Ferengi ship, maybe their chief engineer, could be from a planet the Federation passed by and left to rot. He's bitter that his planet was left in poverty and suffering that the Federation could have aided with but because no warp drive; no aid. A generation later the Ferengi discover them and sell them things they use to lift themselves out of poverty, now he's an engineer of warp drive systems so who is the primitive now.

There is no way Jason Mantzoukas does not know what Jenkem is. And there's no way that's not the reason he insists on saying this character's name in the third person. I can only wonder how long this show will air before someone in the production chain finds out, like when they realized the acronym for Star Trek Discovery was a little too accurate.

Anyway, 2 episodes into this and I actually like it so far, but part of that is STD and PrIC setting the bar so fucking low. But I think the fact this is on niceloeon is gonna help. It the "OUR SHOW IS MADE FOR ADULTS!" type of Star Trek that fucking sucks, going all the way back to the TNG movies. Everyone in STD and PrIC is a sweaty, slutty, angry, swearing, traumatized loser who learns nothing on their journeys. I am fuckign excited that this new show will be in a format where no one is allowed to say "YEAH, I WISH I COULD LITERALLY FUCK MATH!" or show a Klingon penis. And maybe, just maybe we'll actually get some fucking moral lessons and adventure.

I'm not yet ready to call it good, but it's definitely not bad so far, and Rock girl is adorable.

If nothing else, we will now have two entire series in which to compare and contrast if Hologram Janeway is less crazy than the real one.

Bump because second half of the season starts today
STD S4 was the lowest point of all star trek for me, for the first time I couldn't even bring myself to keep hate watching it. The criticism of STD I keep hearing that feels most accurate is that "Unlike every other Star Trek series that had a rough start and gradually improves, STD seems to take any criticism as a challenge and double down on whatever it was doing wrong."

Anyway, I only mention all that to say that after Ep 6 of PROD I officially love this fucking show because it actually seems to be fucking trying and learning. It still has a few things to nitpick, but it's a fucking Star Trek show and it's finding it's footing gloriously. Every episode is better than the one before it. This last episode relied on fanservice a little much, but in a way that paid tribute to Trek's glorious past instead of shitting all over it to prop up a bunch of Mary Sues. Characters are starting to have their more annoying traits watered down, a mystery has been introduced to solve that doesn't seem like yet another THREAT TO ALL LIFE IN THA GALAXY!!!1!!, the voice cast on this kids show emoted way more believably than the alleged adults on the kurtzman crap.

It is still, fundamentally, a kids show and so there is some limitation there (can't discuss my criticisms without getting into spoilers though), but like I said in a previous post it really reminds me of how I felt when The Last Airbender started to figure out what the fuck it was doing. My reservations are gone; I hope this shit gets Seven seasons.

Also, Yet another show that uses the correct Klingon design instead of the STD leper-colony looking crap, I think we're winning guys it feels like TD is slowly being filtered out of canon in the project kuntzman has less direct control over

plz, it's DIS, like dissing the fanbase.
>But I think the fact this is on niceloeon is gonna help. It the "OUR SHOW IS MADE FOR ADULTS!" type of Star Trek that fucking sucks,
one of the things that made TNG so magical was it was almost like most episodes were family oriented after school specials, but with fucking space battles and posing tough moral questions. OST felt more like Space Bond. Now it's all straight indoctrination, brow beating, and appealing to the lowest common woke denominator.

But making it a CGI 3D cartoon series with a random rag tag crew is almost like they don't give a shit. They basically did the same show with Space Cases, and DS9 offered them the format with the Federation Academy crew that went rogue. Hell they could say they did it to wokeafie the universe by saying how imperial, racist, and sexist the prime directive is.

So...I've noticed that in all the series, there's yet to be a Jew on the bridge of a Federation craft. Or a practitioner of any Earth faith.

Yet religion still clearly exists in the future, the Bajorans are the obvious example, but the Klingons clearly have a defined world religion, the Ferengi have their weird afterlife, and the Betazoids have a 'sacred chalice; which implies a religious belief. Vulcans--even if its' not a 'religion' per se--have a good deal of "illogical" traditions that definitely feel like a religious sacrament.

Even the Borg have their weird fascination with the Omega Particle, and 7 of 9 states a couple of times that Borg drones are essentially "immortal" as their memories will exist forever in the collective.

Whenever an alien species' religion is featured, I don't think there's any human chaacters who talk about their own religion. Chakotay sort of does with Neelix in the episode where Neelix has the near death experience but he's mainly talking about meditative practice rather than any of his indigenous theology.

I know that it's probably done to avoid controversy etc, Earth is a very generic utopia in Star Trek and specifics of life on Earth are often left out (and let's face it, it's kind of a boring topic for a show about space exploration) In fact, the only times I can recall humans really saying anything that indicates a faith are in TOS where Kirk talks about just having one God and they have some throwaway lines throughout the run ("God help us" etc)

That would be contrary to what we see throughout history. Conflict often is associated with INCREASED religiosity among the masses. It's not as if Afghanistan is a paragon of secular thought.

The tent revivals in the US that created modern evangelism and the religous right as a political force surged immediately after the 2nd World War and were in large part energized by disillusioned and traumatized veterans.

People who are suffering, living in environments of extreme violence or poverty often have very unique brands of religous zeal.

Well most of the utopian characteristics of Star Trek Earth are inherently cloaked in mystery, but the writers seemed to try to display it as a cozy place where people can freely pursue meaningful hobbies and lifestyles, even if replicator technology has largely made them obsolete. Maybe this is permitted for historical reasons, kinda like having Earth be one big Colonial Williamsburg. Also there is no inherent strife on Earth implying there was some great moral awakening in humanity after they made first contact, so humanity learned not to be dicks to each other, but also the option of a warp drive would make resource collection no longer limited to Earth. I could write a thesis on the hypothetical laws of star trek utopia, but that's for another thread.

As for OP's specific question about religion in trek, the simple reason I would say it is absent is because on board any Federation crew starship they are expected to act like professionals and practice in private. Maybe it is not intentionally explored as we got a ton of alien religions to explore for the audience, or simply they didn't want to touch a 3rd rail much like Stargate avoided any discussion of Christianity.

Of course the modern US Navy does permit the practice of various religions, and I think more exceptions are starting to be made in accordance with woke politics, but we will see how well that shit survives in an actual hot war. It would be more interesting to discuss if Islam is practiced in the Federation, as Islam has a huge intolerance for other religious beliefs. But then again with a warp drive the Federation could find an unoccupied habitable planet and just have them fuck off there, though it would be interesting to explore the diplomatic fallout should such a world conquer another alien race and whether starfleet would be held accountable. Its probably why starfleet intentionally keeps colonies technologically dependent, as actively violating the starfleet charter means starfleet is going to tell you "you are on your own know, good luck". And considering the number of threats they face in a star trek episode they probably won't last long if they decide to poke some bear.

Is anyone else surprised that this show ended being not as awful as you expected? I mean it's nowhere close to the rest of the series in quality(except Picard, fuck that show) but its not absolute shit. I found myself kind of enjoying it and just want season 3 of The Orville to come the fuck out already.
Also is just a new running gag that Riker shows up in finales to save the day?
