Many, many years ago I've seen a cheap-looking Star Trek Fan-Film with bad acting.
I remember it was relatively amateurish but they managed to include some selfmade CGI-Aliens.

I think it was a blue or Pink alien, it had the same shitty animations every time.
It didn't say anything, just made the same noises every time.

Anybody knows maybe what I am talking about?

/420/ is littered with people bitching about mods, users, tubes, and IRC mods, and to be fair, there are some shit mods, users, tubes, and IRC mods, but here on /1701/, we got good users, a decent tube, and two great mods who don't actually have to moderate anything (Therm0 may not actually be a real mod, but we know Guinan is at least, and Therm is in spirit).

Basically, Roddenberry's vision lives on, not in the brutal real world of poverty and genocide, but here on this board. Live long and prosper

Captain, I'm experiencing the most unusual sensation right now. Something about your intentional linguistic misapplication of "like" instead of "luc," combined with the thoroughness of repetition has produced an uncanny feeling of enjoyment in me. Is this... humor?

I'm trying to compile a list of all the episodes from the different books of Trek that have basically been the same plot, but with different crews.
I don't mean that as a diss, the show's been around for 50 years, stories get retold. But I enjoy comparing alternate takes on the same problem.

Here's a few off the top of my head, please add any you can think of

Marooned with the enemy (aka "Enemy Mine)
TNG "The Enemy"
ENT: "Dawn"

Whole crew is intoxicated:
TOS The Naked Time
TNG The Naked Now

There's a brain hopping murder ghost:
TOS Wolf in the Fold
TNG Sub Rosa
VOY Flashback

I swear there's an episode where the Voyager confronts a Space Amoeba like they did in TOS, although with a less apocalyptic tone, but I can't fucking find the title.

Good ep even if it is a sci-fi staple. They pulled it off much better than most and felt more realistic and rational than other similar episodes in different series.

Generic, but lacking from the main page.

Who does this community see as the best Captain, in terms of personal accomplishments, command skills, achievements and whether or not you'd be willing to serve under them in a high stakes situation.

But then shouldn't the holodeck operate on these principles the whole way?

If you take that to its logical conclusion the holodeck becomes much more matrix-esque:
The things you see "only" exist within a micrometer of your eyes/pupils.
It basically projects a holographic "film" over your eyballs that acts like a clark-tech version of a oled contact lens.

The same goes for your ears. It generates animated" force fields that are the equivalent of earbuds.
It would have to take the shape of your ears into account, by either wrapping around them or by simulating the directional filter role they take in the hearing process.

Touch would work like a spandex bdsm gimp-suit essentially. A force field that wraps around your skin, and even you clothes and presses/rubs/slides across any surfaces consistent with the simulation.

Gravity related stuff is a bit more tricky, but I can't see why any of the above approaches wouldn't work with gravitons instead of photons, and furthermore it probably just has to fool your inner ear.

All in all this would mean that any person inside the holodeck is completely isolated from ever other person and even the interaction between them is simulated. Much less of a reason to have it a big room even, but I guess they do that just because "they can"

Well, really, they would just jack in. It's fantastically easier and more energy efficient. They honestly probably started with that idea, and someone in the writer's room said 'yeah, but we can't show people plugging into chairs all day. Let's have them walk around in it instead.' To which someone said 'how tf are they gonna do that?' 'I dunno, it's a hologram, or something.' 'But you can like, walk through holograms?' 'It's forcefields or some shit. You figure it out!'

Fun fact: they actually went to the trouble to consult with the Navy's R&D department in the pre-prod phase of TMP, asking them what kind of interfaces they thought the military would be using in 200 years (on the bridge in this case.) Even back in 1979 they knew everything would be wetware, there would be no orders audibly given on the bridge, just mental and computer impulses. And they were like 'well, we can't make a movie like that,' and went nowhere with it.

in a way what you describe is technically possible today as a poor mans holodeck.
Those astro gyro things. I dont know what they are really called but you can spin all over the place.
Ride simulator hydraulics
Some company is building a full body suit for VR with haptic feedback.
Lots of groups are trying to push VR games to some thing worth while.

Combine all of that and you get most of the holodeck features. But that would be to close to reality for treks high tech future.

I'm getting pretty far now. Level 51 Klingon about to head into the Delta Quadrant campaign. I really like the fan service in some of the episodes you get to play. Sadly, doesn't look like I'll be getting anymore free ship tokens now, so If I want a Tier 6 ship, looks like they expect me to pay REAL money or horde a shit load of dylithium.

The D'Derex isn't a powerhouse starship, it is at it's deadliest when utilizing it's design to it's fullest (in my headcannon at least).

Diverting that power to the sensors and maneuvering thrusters would probably be more advantageous. We see that a single ship isn't going to be able to detect a D'Derex on it's own. It would take multiple ships running intensive sensor sweeps to even narrow down a quadrant of empty space to take shots in the dark at the ship. Miss by 100 miles or 100 meters it wouldn't matter. With the ship running cold except minimal engines, being able to change it's location even a little bit means you wouldn't be able to trust that an area you checked with a phaser blast is still clear as you check others.

With the open space you would have ship orientations that would present a much smaller profile to single ships, so even if the ship was damaged and only able to partially cloak it's signature, it could hide in a debris field and orient itself to present it's considerable bulk as a small metallic asteroid.

Action figures are the worst of all of it. I searched to see if there were any Trek figures made by McFarlane Toys, and there's a Kirk as well as a Picard. Both are awesome as I expected, but that's it besides a few collectibles here and there. Most action figures look like 1950s low effort 5 year old's toys.

There an't even Lego sets for fuck's sake. So much of Trek's problems have to do with who owns the rights to what. The fanbase is a bunch of fucking nerds; you'd think they'd have a decent amount of McFarlane quality figures or some highly detailed mini statues or something. God damn.

Say you gained access to a Holodeck and you could essentially make your own custom Star Trek episode with all of the original actors, or even new ones. What would your ideal episode be about? Which crew would it feature? Would you try to write an episode about the Guardian at the edge of forever into TNG? Maybe make a mirror universe TNG episode? Or would you say fuck all of that and make your own trek series. What would you do Anon?

I'll start:
A female of some suitably repugnant race is pregnant. A DNA test reveals that the father is one William Riker. However, Will maintains that he wasn't the culprit, so it must have been Thomas Riker. The remainder of the episode is a reverse custody battle in court, as both Rikers try to prove they didn't fuck the chick, both to save themselves the embarrassment and to get out of paying child support.
