So I'm reading Ronald D. Moore's post-Voyager interview for the first and I just got to this part:

https://www.lcarscom.net/rdm1000118/
>Because if you go back before Kirk, and you start screwing around, and you just don’t care what NEXT GEN or DS9 or VOYAGER established, or the movies, or even the original series, you just try to make it up as you go along, I think you just lost everyone. The whole franchise will just collapse, because it will have no validity whatsoever. If you are going to go there, you really better be prepared to truly put on the STAR TREK mantle and be the keeper of the flame. I think that is really hard for Rick and Brannon. It’s hard for them to do that, because they don’t like the original show. Let’s not mince words. They don’t like the original show. They have never liked the original show. They’ll bob and weave a bit here and there in public. But they don’t like it; they don’t want to have anything to do with it. If you are going to go before the original series and do something, you better have a change of attitude. You better have an epiphany about how much you love the original series. It’s all going to be about leading up to that.

Well, goddamn. That explains a lot.

It's an amazing read. He dissects Voyager and goes over everything wrong with it and with Berman/Braga's decisions with a writer's eye.

How she looks is probably pretty realistic for someone who's been around long enough to reach captain. The inconsistent writing not so much but the acting is decent enough to mask it. Really it's the bad plots and shitty side characters that sink the show more often than not.

ITT: We talk about what is good about Star Trek: Picard and the current state of Trek.

I loved Picard,
Why?
Because is brought back the hope in the future that TOS was based on and mixed it with the beautiful VOY theme of positivity as a tool to overcome adversity.

Yeah, inconsistencies MUST be pointed out so studios hire proper staff in regards of continuity and science accuracy. Borgs are NOT less dense than oxygen. Still, superb photography, nice FX, COOL story (brah), great casting, excellent pacing, and a sociological perspective on robots as slave labor with a peaceful resolution.

Humanity reaps once more the fruit of civilization.
Love you all.

Yes... I mean... in general terms... somehow an inhaler is not as shocking as the needles stimpacks have in Starcraft or fallout. Think the opioid crisis the us had going on before the current one.

Maybe the white stuff of the Jam Hadar is a better example? Still not quite, as they are created and not addicted or afflicted unless deprived, much like... protein for us.

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.

Happy Arbour Day.

I find the humour fairly enjoyable outside of a couple of really bad early episodes. Reminds me a bit of TOS's humour those obviously more emphasised. Unless you meant specifically when it's Seth's type of humour instead of the comedy in general.

They seem to have a girl with issues as cannon now. It's her in Picard and Sylvia the redhead in STD. It could be the reflection with girl teenagers as a major audience, Rey, Star Wars.

Oh man, this would have been too perfect. And yet, probably so "obscure" that normies wouldn't have understood it...

>Raffi
I think the biggest problem with her is that she seemed to have dual, conflicting roles. Sometimes she's she sassy action girl. Sometimes a more motherly figure. Had it been just the latter, I wouldn't have had any issues with her.

>>70231
>girl with issues as cannon now.
>It's her in Picard and Sylvia the redhead in STD
Doctor Blondie also seemed to have dual roles. She was both naïve and inexperienced - yet also a brilliant scientist, top of her field. Again, I think they should have gone with just the latter - or maybe cast someone younger, and stick with the former?

Anyway. Why I really came back here, is this new annoucement:

Maybe. From what I hear, they sent Burnham to the future. And while that does get them away from ruining established canon, it unfortunately means that even if this new Pike series is the best one ever (I'm skeptical) it means that the far future is doomed.

Anyone wanna take bets on if they completely hand wave the 29th centurytimefleet and 30th (31st?) century temporal cold war, or will they devote a couple of lines of exposition as to why the future hasn't changed in 700 fucking years.

How exactly does Star Trek's timeline in the continuity deal with the world they came from being so different from ours? Have they actively explained the timeline disparity, or are they all just hoping no one noticed that there was no Eugenics War in the 1990s and time travel back to then isn't showing it at all anymore?

I was thinking about this today. I'm starting to think the Star Trek timeline was able to become post-racial would be just as much the result of shared tragedy after millions (billions?) dead in WWIII and the post-atomic horror as the result of finding out that there is extra-terrestrial life.

For a long time I wondered who Zephram Cochrane was planning to sell his warp engine to in First Contact. And now I think I understand he was living on an Earth where people would have paid out the nose for the chance to go to another planet in their lifetime.

An odd duck is a perfect way to describe it! It has so much charm for being so bad sometimes. Another favorite moment of mine is Tuvix and how it was kind of fucked up what happened to him.
One of my biggest gripes though is that they moved from the cool Paris tavern to the crappy power rangers beach hangout. There are some moments that would have been much better in a quiet corner of the tavern instead of a booth at the beach house.

Was/is he really as much as an asshole as Takei and the rest of the cast say? Or is Takei just seething over Shatner given more opportunities then he is (Which makes sense considering he was the captain of the show.) Someone give me the rundown on Shatner.
