I've been thinking about why I really dislike the Bajorans, beyond just memes, and I think I've worked it out. If not for the Occupation nobody would ever imagine such a backwards, superstitious and outright racist people would be Federation material. It's a sad thing to have happened to them but they hide behind it instead of facing up to their flaws as a people. Imagine the Ent-D arrived at Bajor without any occupation context: do you think Picard would even think about their joining the Federation? He'd probably have a speech about how the prophets are still not gods, just weird aliens, and how hating all Cardassians for what their government did is something an advanced race should move on from, Maybe he'd compare them to old humanity. DS9's worship of spirituality/religion just because it's not humanity doing it is pathetic, akin to when superstition and outright discrimination is lauded as 'culture' on earth right now just because it's not white people doing it, and when we get the pah wraiths and fucking dragonball possession fights I put those episodes on par with the worst of trek shit like S1 of TNG.

My assumption is Bajor doesn't get in.

S6 and S7 ruined Dukat and reworked his planned arc for Damar just because the writers got upset at Alaimo getting more fan mail than Brooks (probably because he can act more emotions than angry). Luckily Damar was a fun character in his own right so it worked out.

>they should have ended the war at the beginning of the season and had the remainder be a big long epilogue bringing it back around to the core values of Trek
I'd have liked this but it's too ballsy for network tv. Ratings would have tumbled because people would see it as boring compared to a war.
Albert Macklin - Tue, 21 Dec 2021 10:48:07 EST TTcXb8JG No.71959 Reply
Also it's stated that without the occupation Bajor would still have an arse-backwards caste system. That's mentioned in passing in the episode where some religious figure shows up from time travel and the Bajorans instantly run back to the caste system and whatever other backwards ideas he has because he's hundreds of years out of date. This is akin to the USA deciding black people can't vote again because a founding father came back to life, due to not being able to distinguish someone's area of speciality from the (often backwards) opinions they have that were baseline at the time they were alive. Like how if you pull a famous scientist out from 200 years ago he might think gay marriage is wrong but that's an opinion that was merely standard when he was alive not something informed by his scientific brilliance.

>Yesterday, September 8, was Star Trek Day, because the original series debuted on this day all the way back in the groovy year of 1966. As you might expect, a bunch of Star Trek news happened, including some new seasons of ongoing shows. But more importantly, some classic Star Trek games, like Elite Force and Bridge Commander, were added to GOG.com, making them easily purchasable and playable on modern systems for the first time in nearly a decade. GOG.com has partnered with Activision to bring these classic Star Trek games to its storefront. And look, unlike with the recent Call of Duty, Activision is actually putting its name on this re-release event.

>Here’s the full list of classic Star Trek games now available on GOG.com for the pretty hefty price (given their age) of $10 each:

>Star Trek: Bridge Commander
>Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force
>Star Trek: Elite Force II
>Star Trek: Away Team
>Star Trek: Starfleet Command III
>Star Trek: Hidden Evil

>GOG also lists two games — Star Trek Armada I & II — as coming soon, so even more classic Star Trek PC gaming action is on the way.

The worst part of Birth of the Federation is that damn memory leak, and it never got fixed. They never released the source code so fans could fix it.

There's really no fix to get it to work on modern computers. There are fans attempts at sequels: Star Trek Supremacy (still being worked on, but incomplete) and Birth of the Empires (Most complete and polished, but Star Trek references got removed due to potential lawsuits. Fan mods to restore the Star Trek content are very hard to find too.)

I had a working version of BotF a few years ago, it was fun but I could never figure out how the fuck to do anything in the space battles due to a lack of existing manuals for the game, so I always just autoresolved.. it was a really cool game, perhaps yhe pinnacle of trek gaming.. the mod for Sins of a Solar Empire gave me pretty similar vibes but they kept making lame changes to it, like making the Borg cubes weaker.. that and the fact that it was a massive time investment for any kind of game eventually made me lose interest

I was curious about how much we know about the Romulan and Klingon empires. Have they eliminated money, as the Federation has? I assume any culture with transporter technology would have replicators, but maybe that is a Federation-specific technology. Klingons/Romulans both have cloaking technology and federation doesn't; there must be something that federation ships have the K/R do not. Would a Klingon food replicator be able to make live gagh, or would the ship have a gagh farm instead of a hydroponics bay?

Are there other species in the empires, or just a vast amount of colonies (after all there are billions and billions of stars in the galaxy and certainly billions of M class worlds)

I'm mostly a 24th-century trekkie.

I feel like we got a peek of something similar with Insurrection and the interactions between Romulans and Remans.

Likewise the many other species who live under the klingons perhaps do a lot of the scientific and administration and other boring shit Klingons don't want to do. They might even be happy to have the klingons fighting and dyeing for them in defense of their planets against hostiles. And the klingons maybe happy to leave these species to largely do their own thing so long as they allow klingons to handle military matters.
That could make sense. Sort of like the Dominion but less 'everything comes from the top'.

I've always thought that Romulans kinda couldn't be arsed with money, caring more about family status and duty towards the empire, maybe being a bit like the Samurai or Kshatriya and seeing merchants as something dirty. Even when sliming there way up the imperial ladder they seem to care more about their reputation and what others think, andalso power for power's sake than getting rich.

Never seen money mentioned in any comics or books, plus, no point aquiring money when the Tal Shiar can just show trial and purge you, you need connections and to actually be valuable.

I suspect Burnam doesn't know how geometry works because the writers don't know how geometry works.

Like, to be fair, even goodtrek gets science wrong sometimes, but I think when that happens it's generally chalked up to 1) speculating in the areas that science hasn't tied down yet 2) alterations to make the plot work 3) accidents and mistakes and much more rarely 4) complete and total ignorance.

Goodtrek wasn't written entirely by sci fi nerds with backgrounds in hard science, but it generally went out of its way to try and base what it was doing on sound scientific principles and at least had a team of people behind the scenes that the writers could consult.

Nutrek is written by idiots that couldn't give less of a fuck, don't know shit about science, and don't know shit about writing from what I've seen. IMO that's what hurts nutrek the most, is that it has dogshit "writers" whose approach to storycrafting is just plugging in cliches and tropes--it's all paint by numbers crap that offers no surprises and no emotional or narrative depth, and rely entirely on the hack's tricks of emotionally manipulative imagery and inverting tropes, aka "subverting expectations."

You ever just watching some Star Trek, and you hear this mournful honking noise? Sad horn music? It's Riker, every time. If he's on screen and you hear some fucking saxophone trombone shit going on, it's STILL RIKER.. what you're seeing in such a case is proof positive that Riker never gave up his Q powers in 'Hide and Q' rewatch that shit motherfucker he never actually relinquishes his powers, how the fuck do you think he wins all the poker games when everyone (except for Worf) is cheating in some way?
And so every time you hear any kind of horn blowing away, just remember that it's always Riker.

Top threads over last month are about the failure of the Trek series and how it's failed since Alex Kurtzman has taken over.

He's basically become the Bryan Singer or Kathleen Kennedy (universe killer) of Star Trek; given keys to a car, taking a joyride, having 0 fucks about the repercussions.

Sad? Yes. But totally expected when profit margins are the only reason to create content (see proliferation of OnlyFans and Patreon), since global economy never recovered from the 2008 financial crisis.

If you ignore all the corny shit, and you have knowledge of all the production issues to put some of the weirdness into context... it's pretty good.

I think it's more compelling than DS9 as a complete work. But it has much lower lows. DS9's worst episodes are boring, B5's are unwatchable.

B5 should probably watched with a skiplist. But the problem is sometimes an episode that advances the main plot, will also have a corny ass subplot.

The BSG reboot of the SG franchise that arguably killed it but I'd argue no one gave it a chance at the time.

See title of post. Don't get me wrong, I love Worf, but would a different TNG member made as much sense as our favorite Klingon?
I don't quite understand why a stationary space station would have a "tactical officer" Neither does Warf, since he tries to do Odo's job and ruins a sting operation and spends a lot of time on the Defiant.

Could a different character have filled the role of new series regular? Picrel because Deanna is a good all-around go-to character, her telepathy is helpful for plot hooks, and she's a better counselor character than worthless whiny bitch was in my opinion. Relatively easy to shoehorn without much ado about it.

Geordi would be relatively easy to integrate, basically making him O'Brien's boss. I think Data would be hard to integrate, he's a little too naive for DS9's war setting. Riker's personality would clash too much with Sisko&Kira. Dr Crusher (or Pulaski's wry humor might be a better fit) might require killing off Julian. I guess there's also characters like Romulan Tasha (I need to rewatch that one, I forget exactly if she''s Tasha's daughter from the future or something?) who could be a romulan presence on the station, commander shelby, mot's barbershop on the promenade, etc

I agree with your take that the "enlisted" are really just about establishing accountability and individuals committing to the responsibilites of command. OBrien effectively has that in his existing role (at least on DS9), and I would be inclined to think that the title of officer is more or less ceremonial and not something that ever appeals to Miles.

That said, I do wish that he got more respect. My headcanon was that he didn't endear himself to his superiors because of shit he'd say/do while fucked up.

Re: the Eugenics wars, I more or less agree, but I also always kind have thought of them as more nebulous, like the coups revolutions/counterrevolutions of the cold war, or the war on terror. Maybe the general population we see in 1996 was not super aware of them and seemingly unaffected outside of the marginalised dissenters the way most Americans are fairly innoculated against the violence being done during those conflicts. I think the non-canon novel on the Eugenics Wars takes a similar stance.

I haven't actually watched Voyager but maybe that could explain it, though admittedly it does just seem like a missed opportunity.

The weird shit about TNG, VOY and DS9 is that TNG's films and VOY barely mention the Dominion War and DS9 doesn't do shit about the Borg really (except explaining the origin of the Defiant) or even bother with a throwaway line about what the ENT-D/E are up to during the war. Little references go a long way.

Early on in TNG the costume department kept fucking up and giving him ensign or lt pins. This stops just about the same time as the episode with the space-Irish so my theory is Picard pre-emptively demoted him after that.

I've been working my way through Voyager again trying to give it a fair shake (I did this with ENT and came to appreciate it a lot more) and while it obviously has its ups and downs I've managed to push through to S4 where it starts to get consistent again. I just finished watching the episode Retrospect which if you don't remember is when the Doc, fully with good intentions, dabbles in the pseudoscience known as psychiatry and basically introduces a fake repressed memory into Seven that has her accuse an innocent albeit somewhat untrustworthy arms dealer of rape knocking her out and sampling her nanoprobes. The crew backs her, in part because of a little bit of preconceptions about the two people involved but also because The Doctor pushes hard without questioning if her recollection feels true but isn't necessarily the truth, and as a result of this, the arms dealer ends up running off assuming the investigation is rigged and eventually dying in a manner that's almost suicide. For once in a Trek investigation episode no happy ending where it turns out someone was framed by the obviously evil third party {spoiler]I'd kind of like it if they explicitly said his planet's government had let the record show he was guilty for convenience, or that they simply dropped any attempt to prove otherwise after he'd died but that's a minor thing[/spoiler].

Needless to say any Voyager episode heavy on The Doctor and Seven will tend to be good and Janeway always shined more as a supporting mother character when the writers could make her consistent. Tuvok getting a chance to shine as the objective investigator works for me too so as an episode it's perfectly competent. However the thing I wanted to talk about or at least fire off into the void wasn't really about the episode as much as about what it shows of what Trek was and what, sadly, it currently is not.

Now obviously this was, at the time, a reference to false memory syndrome where it turned out a bunch of accusations of rape/sexual abuse/satanic cults and so on occurred by psychiatrists but it's also aged well in terms of social media mob justice/trial by media and unquestioning backing of any form of any #MeToo accusations etc, hell there are specific cases (in the UK that I know of) like https://archive.ph/8mCmy of this creeping even into actual professional organisations which are comparable to how the episode seems to show the alien authorities as willing to throw a possibly innocent man under the bus for the sake of their external appearances. The way that the moral issue explored didn't just apply to the then current situation but can also be more generally applied to future events is why VOY and ENT, the weakest Trek series, are still in my book real Trek compared to shit like STD and Picard which are simply aping modern media trends and will be horrifically outdated in even a decade. I know TOS is very much of its time too, but I think a lot of what it had to say can still apply now. Even taking something like Mudd's Women where the superficial plot elements obviously haven't aged well with regards to women being only wives I'd argue that the fundamental lesson of picking a partner for their actual personality and abilities not their external attributes applies even more now in the age of social media than it did back then.

I don't really have anything deeper to say than this and, while I tend to think society as a whole is a bit too quick to take simple uncorroborated testimony as gospel in cases like this not even going to go into the double standard that basically assumes female on male rape is impossible, the episode could probably have made it clearer that Seven was also misled by the Doctor and was as much a victim as the man who died but it's just a thought I had while rewatching the Trek series I probably like the least: Voyager was often bad Trek but STD even when it scrapes into passable, is never Trek at all. For this reason also The Orville, much as I have complaints about some of its choices in S2, is something I'd regard as Trek-like in form. About a Girl is actually pretty poorly written and the characters act idiotically but it manages to apply to a whole bunch of different contemporary issues and probably future ones as well and also doesn't take blatant sides or simply judge some people as bad.

I don't really have an appropriate image to illustrate these thoughts so I'll just use a picture of my Trek waifu instead.

So you could feed it hundreds of novels, 50% defined as good and 50% as bad, then ask it to generate a good novel based on what it's seen and theoretically given a large enough dataset and enough processing power it'd churn out something pretty damn good but it'd be hard to ever define it as an original work. Then again that's how we teach most schoolchildren to write well...

it sounds like it could be interesting but I know in my heart it will be terrible because Kurtzman is involved

Yeah, if Kurtzman's on it I'm not even going to bother. I'd rather pay a Klingon to kick me in the balls.
