Someone wins a prize for building the smallest (15um) model of it. The platinum coating on the microswimmers reacts to a hydrogen peroxide solution they are placed in, and that propels them through the liquid.

After the first Abrams trailer with the JFK quote over it I had high hopes. Like it was going to build the bridge between Enterprise and the OST. You may think I was naive but after the rape scene in Nemisis I didn't think you could fuck up trek any more. But then I saw this pick and a feeling of dread roll over me. Then I read the wiki synopsis and as soon as I read the word "red matter" i knew this movie was bullshit. Of all the trek technobabble they at least put effort into relating it to science, but this was just lazy.

DST (ie STD) is so fucking confusing. It takes place at the same time as OST but has sets and actors that look nothing like them? Hell it doesn't even use any of the actors from the fucking reboot. Are we in the Kelvin timeline or the OST timeline? Now the franchise has jumped 1000 years into the future were only spore drives exist. Do millennials actually enjoy this shit? I know they enjoy Game of Thrones but at least that series had the balls to do non-cliche things.

Personally, I think Game of Thrones is to blame for the shitty state of television. And I don't even say that to hate, I enjoyed the bulk of that series. But its success bred imitation, and now everything feels like some kind of bullshit, try-hard House of Cards, "OUR CHARACTERS ARE SO DARK AND SCHEMEY!" nonsense.

The entire reason the early seasons of Game of Thrones worked is because it was surprising to see characters in a setting (pseudo-medieval fantasy) usually defined by romantic concepts of honor and duty so something unexpected. But now everything is subversive, and so subversion has become normal and paradoxically the least subversive narrative decision.

no bump because /mtv/ - tier rant that has nothing to do with star Trek. But then again, Discovery doesn't either.

How often have you watched Trek? I'm on my 8th playthrough of all the TNG/DS9/VOY series, now at DS9 S2E3

Having watched it at different stages in my life, with different intentions and perspectives, it always keeps being new in some way. There are so many layers to it.

My favourite watch-through was around the time I started using psychedelics, especially TNG is just mindblowingly full of scientific and philosophical content, much of it I didn't recognise even though I was a very philosophical person to begin with even before I tried psychs.

With Season 3 of Discovery leaving established canon it's honestly kinda good.

Why the fuck didn't they do this from the beginning I'll never know.
Oh wait nvm I do know. They took a show designed by one guy to be a specific limited series and then kicked him out, installed assholes in his place and morphed it into something completely different.

Although that tactic can backfire. I remember when critics were only able to watch the first six episodes of season 1 of BoJack Horseman and it got mixed reviews but then when they finally watched the other six episodes, it became critically acclaimed and several sites had to change their review policies because of that.

Though I think that's because it's based on the binge model Netflix pioneered rather than the weekly model that CBS All Access utilizes. Obviously with the weekly model on streaming services, shows nowadays release the first three episodes of the season to get people hooked so RLM is correct in that regard.

Everytime I look at dissident right threads there’s Star Trek discussion going in. There’s the usual Dukat Did Nothing Wrong memes, but there’s also genuine analysis apolitical of stuff. So what makes Star Trek so appealing to the extreme right, despite being a communist utopia?

>How Paramount Failed To Turn ‘Star Trek’ Into A Blockbuster Franchise

>Maybe cheaper Star Trek movies, films that could be successes at $300 million worldwide, could work. What was true in 2009 is now even more true today as the very idea of theatrical exhibition is in peril. The experiment of Bad Robot and Paramount’s initial Star Trek relaunch was a failure. Could spending A-level blockbuster bucks and offering A-level blockbuster thrills turn Star Trek into an A-level blockbuster franchise? The answer, three times in a row, was “No.”

I'm pleased to see the majority of replies damning JJ and Kurtzman.

wtf did Viacom think it was doing? was it trying to "sort-of" sell to itself the rights? From my first link it looks like Les Moonves gave Kurtzman and Abrams a sweat heart deal to heilm the star trek franchise regardless of whether it is profitable to Viacom or not

there's a bunch of books that have been "cowritten" by the actor and somebody who really writes it, but the iirc the Garak one was fairly unique in that it was basically a massaging of the notes the actor had put together about all the character's old experiences and stuff as opposed to just random stuff they brainstormed, so in theory that story in Stitch in Time is really what the actor was pulling from for emotional memory when Garak made an allusion to his stint as a gardener for the Romulan whoeverguy or when his claustrophobia acts up

How well known are the most well known characters and events inside of the Star Trek Universe?

Like for example, everyone in the alpha quadrant has probably heard some version of the Battle of Wolf 359 and Sector 001. But how common knowledge is it that Picard was assimilated or that Riker saved the day?

Everyone seems to have heard of the Voyages of James Kirk and Spock

Data only really seems to be known to various science nerds who would subscribe to news on the subject ("Meet the Enterprise's Mechanical Man")
Same with Geordi, cybernetics still seem to be something of a niche interest.

Everyone has probably heard of "That Klingon in Starfleet", and that probably just got more intense by the end of DS9.

The Voyager would be famous by the end of its journey, so would DS9 by the end of the War
There's probably a bunch of Biographies of the mysterious Captain Sisko, the Religious Prophet who was also the Federation's Eisenhower and then mysteriously disappeared at the end of the war.

Everyone learns about Captain President Archer in grade school and is required to play out 4 semesters of his adventures as holo-logs

Star Trek has this problem where there's usually no sense that there's a universe beyond what's in front of you. This is normal for episodic TV but Trek cranks it up to 11 and it applies to everything from the characters to the Federation. It's just how the shows were written and I don't think it's worth thinking too hard about it, but there are two possibilities. Either these are extraordinary characters in an ordinary universe or ordinary characters in an extraordinary universe. I don't think there's any evidence pointing to the second possibility.
