My favorite thing in Star Trek is when the ships shoot at things. Inanimate objects or other ships, hitting shields or blowing holes in the hull it doesn't matter. I wanna see all of your shots of ships shooting shit.

Post-battle-damage shots of ships are fine too.

Sacrifice of Angels was the beginning of the decline of Trek combat. Before that we had comfy pseudo-submarines or cruiser battles and after that it was just 'what if idiotic golden age of sail battles but in space'.

This is very true. Retrospectively, in a lot of ways I realize that many things DS9 did contributed to the decline of trek. It was an amazing show, with great characters, but at the same time at its very soul it was a complete ripoff of Babylon 5's concept bible.. and yet it evolved to be so much more. But it 'crossed the Rubicon' in some ways, by introducing a little conflict, by showing the federation has its dark sides, and there was no walking that back in cowardly-written voyager, but they did it anyways, resulting in Voyager being a pulpy half-serious show rather than following DS9 up with quality. But that's not necessarily the fault of DS9 in any way, Voyager betrayed its 'Oregon trail in space' setting almost immediately when they started recycling TNG scripts and Voyager started interfering with stuff that in real life they wouldn't have the luxury to even worry about.

Certainly the most egregious thing they did was take shields completely out of that battle and just have shit exploding everywhere like fucking star wars. Did it look cool? Hell yeah! But did the thinking part of my brain have some serious concerns? Oh yes. Certainly.

So, in short, I agree

I know this is a Star Trek board. But I see this series brought up often here and I did myself try to watch it. I'm not one of those "durr only Star Trek" people- I like a good *story.* Wherever is comes from.

More to the point- did anyone actually watch Babylon 5? I seriously tried to but the acting is so bad. And the production value and CGI so terrible that it was at times for me unwatchable. The story that I've read in the past on the various Wiki entries and what not make the Shadow Conflict thing seem interesting! But watching it appears to be such a god dam slog that I cannot bring myself to watch all of it...

In case you somehow didn't know, they made a feature-length documentary about Deep Space 9. I just finished watching it and holy fuck it is the best thing ever.

It's so warm, playful, sweet, serious and lovely. They did everything just right. And it ends with these four guys singing crooner style while the first batch of credits roll.

If you can watch this, or better yet buy it go fucking do it.

>Star Trek and fan productions peacefully co-existed for decades, until CBS took legal action against Alec Peters’ «Axanar». Fans first got a glimpse of the ambition behind it in the sensation «Prelude to Axanar»; and according to some, a finished «Axanar» could have rivaled an official Star Trek production in terms of scale and scope. However, the originally planned «Axanar» never came to be, due to CBS’ guidelines for fan films following the «Axanar» lawsuit.
>«Axanar» is still moving forward though, as it as of the release of this video, is set to shoot in October of 2019, under the direction of comicbook creator Paul Jenkins.
>In this interview, Tom and Robb are talking with Alec Peters about the «Axanar» that is in the making.

Most of us have been here long enough to remember the astroturfing shills coming here in droves when Into Darkness came out. It drove up traffic to /1701/ significantly. In real life, CBS bad, not CBS good. Absolutely nothing good has come out of CBS whoring out the star trek brand to bad robot while simultaneously suing anyone who makes a low budget video larping about star trek. Fuck right off mate. You're not even attempting argument you're just smugging around about how things are more nebulous than they seem, smugly.

Star Trek: State of the Franchise Address

For many of us here, Star Trek has been a defining part of who we are. And I think that's why it's been so hard lately, because it feels like over the past few years, since the end of TNG and DS9, it has drifted from its pinnacle of glory to something withered and sapped of its original spirit. Since the end of Enterprise especially, something seems to have fundamentally changed. And that is because it has.

You see, the company that owned Star Trek decided to split into two companies because the old man who ran it was old and thought it was a great idea for some reason. In this sudden corporate mitosis, Star Trek ended up in the possession of a company which once spurned it in favor of Lost in Space, CBS.. and CBS had no interest in making new Star Trek, but indeed enjoyed the fruits of its merchandising sales. But there remained executives at Paramount who saw the value of Star Trek even if they understood none of its philosophical values or substance, and though they could not truly comprehend what Star Trek was and what it meant, they yearned once more to profit from it. And so a deal was made, a deal which would hammer nail after nail into the coffin of our beloved franchise. It was a devil's bargain, for as it stands today, it seems to have irreversibly damaged the future of star trek, and in turn perhaps the future of us all. After all, Star Trek inspired us to go to the moon, it gave birth to the cell phone and the personal computer, it dreamed of the tablet and the laptop long before they could be reality. But most importantly of all, Star Trek gave us a vision that was not technical at all, a better future for everyone, and though it's a future that comes at great cost and only at the end of terrible wars. Star Trek carried the promise of hope, that whatever we cannot overcome with the power of technology and innovation, we can solve with the better angels of our nature. And it showed us that even in the dark unknown, even the most alien being, the Other, is ultimately much like us. There's a unifying and overwhelmingly inspiring power to the underlying promise of Star Trek, or perhaps it may be more prudent to say that there was.

Things have fundamentally changed because in this new agreement between Paramount and CBS, once one and the same, is built around the protection of merchandising rights for CBS on all the media that WE would actually consider Star Trek. CBS so greedily protects its revenue from the sales of DVDs, tribble slippers, shitty low grade action figures, shat hats, etc. that it went out of its way to destroy the production of the fan film known as Axanar. For those of you unfamiliar with this, I suggest you familiarize yourself. Suffice it to say, this fan film had used the kickstarter model and built up an impressive sum of money from trekkies like you and I, had netted a bunch of actual trek actors, and looked to be perhaps actually what we could call Trek. So CBS feared it. And CBS destroyed it. And in the process they imposed absurdly draconian rules on anyone who wanted to make a trek fan film and not get the shit sued out of them.

The end result of this mixture of paranoia and avarice on the part of CBS painted its attitude toward the deal which they struck with Paramount to make nuTrek 1, nuTrek:in darkness, and nuTrek Beyond, and all other properties, Discovery, and all the shitty cartoons they are about to unleash upon us. All these new shows are built on this contract, and the contract states that any new star trek cannot be too much like the old star trek. Or else.

Let me type that again just so it sinks in. They are contractually obligated to be sufficiently different from Star Trek.

And I am talking everything from uniform design to the way the ships look. I'm also talking about thematics, character development and the way stories are told. If they stray and make something TOO much like Star Trek that has already been made prior to the corporate mitosis event, then they risk being challenged in court under the terms of their contract for all their fucking DVD sales.

I want you all to be viscerally aware of this as the news of this new Picard show trickles out. I wouldn't be surprised if once again our tiny imageboard became inundated with astroturfed shills as it did in the weeks following the release of Star Trek 2009 and Into Darkness. It didn't really seem like they gave a shit for us for STD but p…

I was rewatching First Contact the other day and the Borg are pretty much immune to phasers (seems to be a common occurrence in Voyager as well), yet not to bullets, so why doesn't the Federation have a stash of AKs for crews going up against the Borg?

It can't be a logistics thing (the 40k explanation for shitty lasguns), as they have access to replicators and could literally magic everything up out of thin air. Why don't they immediately start replicating guns and bullets when the come up against the Borg?

I was trying to come up with an answer, could it be that the Federation plain don't like guns, they associate them with all the suffering of the 20th Century which was even bloodier in Star Trek world than ours with WWIII in the 90s and they prefer a more civilised weapon that's mostly used to stun not kill?

But I don't think this works, as the humans have phasers in the mirror universe.

Any thoughts?

They didn't cure toxoplasmosis in the future? Knowing Janeway's tendency to avoid medicals even as her skin falls off she probably sustained a serious head injury early on then with her new personality refused to get it fixed before her brain permanently changed and actually isn't the same person who left DS9 in that crossover episode. Janeway is concussion and brain cell death now.

I dunno about Porthos. I think if the best of man is supposed to go represent us in space then we should definitely take a dog or two. Cats are half domesticated shits (which is half the charm they hold for "cat people"). During the first couple of seasons Archer is naive and barely even wants weapons and Porthos out acts a lot of the cast (and has more charisma than everyone bar Phlox). Later on it's established that he has more survival instinct than everyone else. This is probably because as we know starfleet has always been a way of getting the most reckless crazies must be at least a 6 on a scale of 0 to "Optimus Prime" who even does a needless suicide run in the animated transformers film with awesome wells off earth. Porthos isn't someone with a deathwish, just a dog though. So he survives things that would kill other crew members by virtue of lacking the suicide genes.
