  1. Way of the Warrior holds a special place in my heart (first DS9 episode(s) I ever got on VHS until I finally got everything on DVD). It's not what I consider an episode you could skip, and seeing DS9 hold its own against a freaking Klingon fleet waiting for backup to arrive was just the icing on the cake. Easily one of my top ten Star Trek episodes.

    The ship lurched, hissed and shimmied its way to warp 5. Academy presentations of old ship logs from this era had always seemed so overly dramatic, like the people had been coached to flail and fling themselves for dramatic purposes.

    When King leans on the forth wall.

    EDIT: Darn it, Ryan - this entire flipping post was one chuckle after another! Here's more.

    Ryan took a moment and seriously considered the scenarios ability to get them the time they needed. If nothing else, he was sure such a diversion would win him a commendation for original thinking from Commander Core.

    Viewscreens back in the 23rd century suffered from the same problem everything else suffered on the Venture, it was old. Had someone told him Jolara had gotten angry and flung a helping of spaghetti sauce against the screen, he would have shrugged his shoulders, believed them and told her that he had hoped she had brought enough for everyone. His stomach gurgled.

    Core: Before you go, how are you with a hyperspanner?
     
    ::In mid-turn, Ryan paused and considered pretending he hadn't heard anything. It would no doubt have been easy to blame it on the white noise machines that were placed throughout the station to reduce the noise. But ignoring his exec? Even that was too brazen for him.::

    King: A hipa-wha?
     
    ::Hyperspanner? The word evoked some type of tool used in a physical exam performed in Sickbay. Certainly not a tool Ryan had any idea or intention of handling any time soon. He wrinkled his nose as he looked back over at Core.::

    Oh boy. XD

  4. I feel like I've seen something about the Discovery in canon already and that it was pre-TNG - which also fits with some of the rumors that were coming out a couple months ago. Registry suggests this too.

    Its been suggested to me that they might not be going past Voyager because of conflicting with Star Trek Online - which I sincerely hope is not the case. STO is great and all, but . . . really? Does it really have to classify as canon?

    Vyrenna: =/\= Commanders, be advised that we have momentarily lost contact with Captain Kells's away team. We are reading biosignatures where they should be, but our comms are unable to reach them. =/\=

    Vyrenna-speak for "careful, Captain Kells might get kidnapped again".

  6. With Star Trek Online finally hitting our consoles, now's a good as time as any to discuss what other Star Trek games you might have loved or hated when playing with that controller on your home console, recommending or downright slamming as you go.

    I'm "lucky" enough to own Star Trek: Conquest for the PS2. Nice little strategy game, actually, though has little to no story aspect.

    Kells: Secretary Ventu.
     
    Ventu: The itinerant Fleet Captain Kells. ::beat:: Well, now that we've established who we are, shall I get down to why I tracked you down here? 
     
    :: He nodded, waved her toward one of the unoccupied seats. ::
     
    Ventu: ::conversationally:: You're very insubordinate. I like that, except when I hate it and have my most insubordinate subordinates ejected into space.

    Adding "Don't upset Ventu" to my list of how to survive on Starfleet vessels . . .

  8. Core: =/\= Core to Invicta. =/\=

    Shandres: =/\= Invicta here. Whats going on, Commander? =/\=

    ::Of all the people to pick up the call - it had to be the knight in shining armour. The man who could be thrown into just about any situation and still somehow cope without too many issues - Ki Shandres was to the rescue.:

    That awkward moment when you realize your boyfriend has a crush/is best friends with your ex.

    You say this now, but I joke not when I say that this section originally had "If Roshanara wasn't in the picture, he may have kissed him". B)

  9. I'm done with this reboot franchise. I'm not gonna see it. I'm gonna leave my faith in the guys that give me Limitless and Scorpion every week to bring me a TV show better than the movies I'm being provided with and worth more of my time. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci haven't failed me for two years worth of TV series, I'm hoping they don't break that streak.

    Alex Kurtzman:

    Producer, announced, Star Trek 4

    Star Trek Into Darkness (producer)

    Star Trek (executive producer)

    Robert Orci:

    Executive Procedure, announced, Star Trek 4

    Star Trek Into Darkness (producer)

    Star Trek (executive producer)

    Star Trek Beyond (written by) (post-production)

    Star Trek Into Darkness (written by)

    Star Trek (written by)

    Don't get your hopes up. =/

    I'm aware of their credentials. I mean they're much better television producers then they are for film, hilariously so.
