  1. The Sir Patrick Stewart Topic

    Odd that they look nothing alike.
  2. The Sir Patrick Stewart Topic

    I get that he wanted a chance to just cut loose and have some fun, but, damn.
  3. The Future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ! Yay !

    Ragnarok review: minor spoilers.

    Hell, I almost wish Snoke was just Jar-Jar in disguise. Then... ...he can die in EP IX. And I can justify his existence in the films. Otherwise he's just there to be a damn idiot.

    Meesa pretty sure.

    Unfortunate if true. I've worked hard to forget the prequels.
  7. Discovery: a Star Trek For Our Times

    A human will sometimes rage. Humans will make mistakes. There's always going to be a Lorca in any human that's willing to at least entertain ending the fight by wiping everyone out. "We're not going to" That's where we are in the 23rd century and that's where we will always be. And, you know, sometimes you and the Chief Engineer are going to be too different and not near-familial buddies. That's just how we work and I like that DSC has a good handle on that and how to integrate it with the Roddenberry ideals.
  8. What Star Trek book are you currently reading?

    Moving through "The Autobiography of Jean-Luc Picard." From the Foreword By Beverly Crusher that's hijacked by a special someone who describes him as "A perfect human being" to really nailing the, in many ways oppressive home of his childhood. It's a great read so far...more later. PS- I expect, Mr. Picard, you will enjoy his graduation photograph and "retirement" photo in front of a painting of himself in his prime.
  9. Star Wars: Han Solo Movie

    It's a one-man show then?
  10. Episode 1.5 "Choose Your Pain" Discussion Thread

    Honestly, with the exception of Picard and to a lesser extent Data, I found them all to be pretty one-note. Data was also one note, but his exploration of humanity had nuance so the note had some depth. I detest Worf on many levels, and Dr. Crusher just as much. Riker's all right, Troi is boring and Geordi's lack of personality and emotion probably has something to do with this streak of romantic failures. Most of them have never particularly moved me.
  11. Episode 1.5 "Choose Your Pain" Discussion Thread

    It's been 50 years of, in many way, the same show. DS9 stretched the format with some serialization and genuine character growth, but it was still the same format with the same kinds of characters for 5 decades. Some people simply can't handle something not that format and starring not all those same basic archetypes.
  12. Episode 1.5 "Choose Your Pain" Discussion Thread

    I think it's all wonderfully said, particularly regarding TNG. I LIKE it. I still watch episodes. I have nostalgia for it. As it aired, my viewing was incomplete until I saw the next week's preview. I never loved it and I still don't. There's a blandness to it, and, even as you point out, a sort of soft bigotry inherent in it, especially for things too different from the Federation. That bigotry that was loud and proud in "The Neutral Zone" never really left it, and the characters are bland in a lot of ways. The people of DSC are real and that makes their values and virtues real.
  13. Episode 1.5 "Choose Your Pain" Discussion Thread

    If I had to pick, it'd be Decker. he just had a straight up PTSD breakdown and really, did what he did all he did to try to save lives and maybe redeem himself. Tracey was pretty corrupt to begin with. Sure, he lost his crew, too, but someone dangles the idea of the fountain of youth in front of him and he'll drain four phasers killing Yangs to get it and would have happily committed straight-up genocide.

    LOL. We're safer voting for that Sith religious nut for Senate.
  15. Episode 1.5 "Choose Your Pain" Discussion Thread

    Seems like the Admiralty is essentially a speed-run to corruption.
