  1. And that, in a nutshell, is why Section 31 is banned in 118. 😎
  2. Is there any particular reason La Forge was left out of this poll? Seems like a glaring oversight of best bro.
  3. 43 weeks left.

  4. I'm a huge fan of the Vitriolic Best Buds trope, so Odo and Quark get my pick here. With that in mind, I feel like a special mention needs to be given to ENT's Malcolm Reed and Hayes. I know a few people who felt it was just a silly conflict overall (Starfleet vs MACO), but I've been in RL situations where I've seen (experienced) misunderstandings that devolve into this kind of paranoid desire for control over what people believe belongs to them. The stupidity of the conflict on Enterprise hghlights a human element -- because sometimes we do dumb stuff, and we don't realise it until later
  5. https://trekmovie.com/2020/08/16/star-trek-strange-new-worlds-bringing-back-planet-of-the-week-tos-style-says-alex-kurtzman/ Me when I read this.
  6. Vulcan has a hot climate. That's the only winning factor for poor constantly-cold Blake.
  7. Remind me again who holds these guys accountable?
  8. Have fun watching, US. Australians still don't have a release platform announced.
  9. VOY's Lineage. I feel like it's constantly overlooked. Yes, it lacks (quite deliberately) 'heart-warming' moments, but it's an important discussion about acceptance in our (and Trek's) society today.
  10. Prepare the younguns: Another animated series for Star Trek is on its way, due 2021.
  11. I like Jeff Russo -- he did some extraordinary work on What Remains of Edith Finch... but his Star Trek work has been fairly underwhelming. Discovery's main theme is hardly what I'd consider 'iconic', and Picard unfortunately latched on to that one episode with his flute and stuck to that concept. Both fairly impressive compositions, but ultimately too 'air-y' and constantly warrant a skip. That said, they're not to the level of Faith of the Heart. At least he's ahead of something.
  12. Am I excited? YOU BET YOUR VULCAN MIND I'M EXCITED IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING PEOPLE I CAN FINALLY STOP SENDING LONG-WINDED EMAILS TO THE TREK GODS
  13. Ukinix is about two more "can you hear me?"s away from taking a long walk out of a short airlock, and it shows.
  14. I play with the idea of a police procedural a little in my pre-Veritas sims. I would love to have a Starfleet officer sent to go assist the fixer-upper of Nimbus III on screen. I think something like that would eat my time away, tbh.
  15. You're not the only one. I felt the first two episodes were excruciatingly slow. But strangely enough, because they introduced us to (what will now be) Picard's crew, it seems to have improved significantly. Rios and Raffi have added some flavour to the mix. Rios, more than Raffi — because what's better than one Santiago Cabrera? Three Santiago Cabreras.
  16. It's like going to Maccas and finding out the drive-thru speaker is buggered.
  17. If you didn't like Star Trek: Picard very much, it's okay. Santiago Cabrera comes into the third episode to rescue the entire show. 

    You're welcome.

      I was liking Michelle Hurd myself....

  18. Do I think androids, holograms, and computers should be considered sentient beings? ...No. Do I think they should be afforded the same basic rights and respect of sentient beings? Yes.
  19. Having watched the first episode, I'm looking forward to it actually picking up speed...
  20. Depends on how you define "prequel" in our current Trek circumstances -- since Discovery is in both past and present, and Picard takes place after Nemesis, we can't really call any of the shows "prequels" anymore. I disagree that prequels are evil on principle. I'm still crossing my fingers for an Anson Mount Pike show. But I can't see any of these captains in a show. We already know all we need to know about these guys. If we need another prequel, I'm thinking more of Erika Hernandez, Demora Sulu, or Rachel Garret -- both captains who were important in Trek history, but typically glossed
  21. Excuse me I just gotta go stick my head in a pillow and laugh this out for a couple minutes I'll be right back
