The original Enterprise (Constitution class) had a holodeck. This goes against everything I was ever taught growing up.

In my head there was the Matrix and the Animatrix and then they called it a day. It is fine to live in a different reality to others as long as you remember they do not share your own superior reality. Mine now includes what you posted here.

I'm looking for a video which I'm pretty sure is a TNG edit where Riker uses his Q power to show Wesley his future self and it's fucking Wil Wheaton then Data bursts out laughing.

I can't for the life of me find it.

>he was popular and bajorans weren't

Yeah no shit, pretty much all Bajorans on the show are terrible people. Even Kira (who were are supposed to like because she's a main character) is insufferable until she goes through an arc where she's forced to work with people from other cultures and finally learns that you don't need to be a cunt in order to get ahead in life (or something to that effect).

The only likable Bajoran I can think of is that old guy who gave Ro Laren some hasperat and advice. But I bet that off-screen even that guy beats his wife in front of the kids because she didn't make the hasperat spicy enough.

Kira starts as a cunt and learns quite a few lessons. I enjoyed watching it and am a fan of the character but because she overcomes being horrible rather than because she's just nice. Dukat slowly did descend into being a tosspot in almost a direct contrast to her, but he had so much smarm that he would have had to go a long way. I think if they'd kept the existing pace he might have been annoying by about season 11 or 12 but they didn't have that time so they just made him go mad and called it a day. In fairness he's had a pretty wild ride and going mad isn't completely unbelievable but it's definitely the "make the best of the situation we got ourselves into" cop out and not superb writing.

He spent 6 seasons ignoring vital lessons and doubling down. Losing Ziyal could have also been the moment where it finally came to roost and they could have turned him into a tragic character, I think it's harder to imagine the Cardies rallying around such a contraversial figure the way they did Damar. Also for all his smarm I can't imagine Dukat laughing and saying "They'll just make another copy of him, you know. You should've killed me. There's only one Dukat".

There were a couple of cool bajorans and they all die heroically. Though chill gardening dude's corpse ends up being another stepping stone for Kai Hilary.

Because Dukat wouldn't laugh at a pointless death, regardless of if they could be cloned.

Never been a big trekkie but saw some TOS on cable the other day and decided to start watching TNG. Damn this is a good show! Anything I should keep in mind while watching it (spoiler free)? Just finished season 1, seems like they don't make television like this any more. Most episodes have a good story, beautiful women, and strong characters, feels like they don't make television like this anymore. It's the perfect show to get stoned and watch while programming.

I tried watching some DS9 but it was boring as fuck compared to big dick Picard and pussy eating king Riker hitting backwall across the galaxy.

RIP Chief Security Officer Tasha Yar

Gunsmoke in space, but better.

Better acting and budgets but all of the characters are constantly slightly drunk or high. Roddenberry's weird fetishes creep into the writing.

2 is really hit and miss though, sometimes it's outstanding TV and sometimes it's just painful. It has the really fun Matter of Honour which contains maximum Riker and then straight afterwards there's "measure of a man" but it also does sometimes go wide of the mark like the one where Troi gets pregante with a creepy non consensual alien.

S1&2 have some of my favorite star trek episodes. I don't know what happened in S3 but the stories just didn't have the same excitement. I love the trio of Kirk, Spock, and Mcoy - more than any crew that came after, but that isn't enough to hold my interest alone. RIP.

The USS Lee Harvey Oswald, crew of 12, plus passengers. Handjob girl is the ship's chippy little nursling, and her mom is Chief Engineer. The captain is Worf. Data is married to an AI starship, the Federation Junker Elite: Esmerelda III. But when Starfleet HQ is attacked, launching Worf's mission into Cardassian space, Data docks the 'relda inside the LHO, and he becomes the ship's DJ, and there are raves nightly, and everybody gets down, everybody gets busy, everybody gets moving. They all know what's up and they never stop. That's how it ends.

The investment banker dude comes across holosuites, and decides to bankroll a program based on the musician/druggie dude he was frozen with. The musician shows up to offer “creative input” before running off to do a show on Risa. The banker polishes out the dings the musician left in the program, brings it to a nice PG rating, and Vic is born.

I guess it would be more truthful to say I watch TNG-VOY yearly with pickup eps of TOS/TAS throughout the year and then ENT about 3 out of 5 watches.

The TOS movies I usually watch with the series but I don't get into the others during the TNG-VOY run often. I do the Chronology Project order for that one so it really breaks the series up and it is much easier to watch that way IMO. You've got TNG for the start of DS9 and DS9 for most of VOY. I always do ENT after VOY if I am going to watch it.

I've only seen the new films maybe twice each, 4-5 eps of Picard, and almost a season and a half of STD.

When I do it I usually burn through it fairly quickly. Might start out watching a couple of episodes here and there and then I get the itch or sometimes if I can't find anything else to watch I can always start it up until I settle on something and end up getting sucked in. Sometimes I will do a pretty good run and then stop entirely for a few months and pick it back up again rather than straight through.

I also work odd hours with almost all of my free time at night when there isn't much to do outdoors and I'll almost always have either music or a show playing whether I am sitting in the recliner relaxing and getting into it or having it on while I'm on the PC or doing chores or whatever. Its like the Grateful Dead of film/tv for me. Its got a little bit of everything and I can always count on it. Lot of great stuff, tons of good stuff, and almost none that are so bad you have to cut if off so its kind of one of my go to shows.

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.

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.

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.

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.

>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.
