  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. It's like going to Maccas and finding out the drive-thru speaker is buggered.
  4. 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....

  5. 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.
  6. Having watched the first episode, I'm looking forward to it actually picking up speed...
  7. 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 over in one or two episodes (or in Sulu's case, a scene in a film) with next to no screentime. Actually, now that I've spent time thinking about the possibilities, I need a Demora Sulu show. Please, CBS.
  8. 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
  9. Nice vote of confidence from our CMO there... XD
  10. Sky Blake: ISFJ-T, "Defender" Traits: Introverted 53%; Observant 83%; Feeling 72%; Judging 53%; Turbulent 54% Blake is also a sentinel. Role: Constant Improvement ---- Tristam Core: INFP-T, "Mediator" Traits: Introverted 56%; Intuitive 76%; Feeling 78%; Prospecting 75%; Turbulent 63% Role: Diplomat Strategy: Confident Individualism ---- And then, me: ISTP-T, "Virtuoso" "Virtuosos explore ideas through creating, troubleshooting, trial and error and first-hand experience. They enjoy having other people take an interest in their projects and sometimes don’t even mind them getting into their space. Of course, that’s on the condition that those people don’t interfere with Virtuosos’ principles and freedom, and they’ll need to be open to Virtuosos returning the interest in kind."
  11. I know it's been a while since it was simmed, but we still need to talk about this genius scene:
  12. Ladies and gents, I have decided I would like nothing more than a show led with Anson Mount's Captain Pike and some adventures with Number One and Lt Spock. Honestly, if CBS doesn't do this, after that finale, those execs should be written off as mad.
  13. One of the biggest "complaints" from anti-Discovery viewers was always to do with "they have holographic technology before it existed!" - to which I always link to this Telstra ad: Fact is, "back in the day" of classic Trek, stuff like holographic technology was a blip on the radar - practically nonexistant. A twinkle in inventor eyes. Today, however, we've not only established VR (which, honestly could be considered early versions of a holodeck) but also have a very, very rudimentary version of 'holographic' capabilities as Discovery has established. If Calypso established anything, it was that Discovery ends up without a crew, lost in space for years. Part of me wants to believe that this is because of a huge disaster with the spore drive - a jump gone wrong, if you will, which would explain why the crew had to abandon ship and Discovery ended up alone for hundreds of years. Not implementing the spore drive in any other Starfleet vessel following this incident seems like the most logical conclusion. The technology is not wrong. It is more in line with how we consider the future.
  14. Fun fact, that Red Shirt (Commander Nhan) is actually a Barzan, a race introduced in TNG.
  15. Considered a 'long time simmer' nowadays, I honestly wasn't aware there was a difference between "Tag" and "Tbc . . . " (the latter of which I always use to sign off my sims). Only in rare occasions have I employed "End" - and even then, it's usually mission related. 🤷‍♀️
  16. Ensign Teller had quite the doozy in the lounge chat on Discord, and I felt it could not go unheard.
  17. Not sure which is scarier; sentient house plants trying to kill me, or Lorian Lovar.
  18. You're more likely to die or suffer a breakdown/injury under the short tenure of James T. Kirk than you are any one of the other captains. No thank you.
