  1. Your overall impression after season 1

    Some people need it to BE "Star Trek: Continues" That was wonderful for tying up all the loose threads of TOS, and I love it to the point that I honestly think no one needs to bother with at least TOS fan films again, as they will never meet the bar that ST:C set. But that time is over...from the simplistic sets to the simplistic writing. it's over. I think most of the people complaining about these aspects would be happier if they just walked away.
  2. What non-trek movies have you watched lately?

    I've had high hopes for it since the first trailer and it didn't disappoint. I'll probably see it again in a week or two.

    I'm sorry, but someone at the House of EL looks like they have a full diaper that needs taking care of.

  5. What non-trek movies have you watched lately?

    Black Panther (No spoilers) This film continues my streak of much preferring Marvel movies with a bit more heft that don't feel like they need to hit every little "Marvel mass audience" checkbox like, say Spider-Man: Homecoming. I think I'll always give Ant-Man a pass for being lighthearted though simply because the humor seems more natural and less forced given the premise. - This film has a good bit of dramatic heft. - A little honest social commentary. - African culture was shown more honest love in 2.5 hours than Voyager managed for Native American culture in 7 years. This film made me ponder again all the things they COULD have done with Chakotay and the richness they could have added if they had made a point to embrace the culture. - A bad guy in Killmonger you can't quite hate because he has honest, understandable reasons for what he does. This was a great Marvel entry to the point where I left kind of excited for the prospect of a sequel.

    Looks like a bunch of kids trying to huff and puff over what big boys and girls they are.
  7. Episode 1.15 “Will You Take My Hand?” Discussion Thread

    Probably. Doesn't mean they wouldn't do it, particularly if that merger starts looking more likely/actually happens.

    Saturday 10 am.
  9. Your overall impression after season 1

    I think that's over. One of the lessons that I hope the producers have learned is that the show has not gelled around her with fans as they had planned or hoped. If season two doesn't reflect that, and they try to play "shove Burnam down their throats," they're gonna have problems.
  10. Your overall impression after season 1

    I'm not even sure that they would all know what you were talking about. I've talked to fans, even a while after First Contact came out that just thought that the movie reset everything perfectly after the movie. It hadn't really occurred to them that Lily was also meant to be on that flight. Or that there was a third seat for another, now likely dead participant. I think part of this is just an unfortunate side-effect of decades in Asian martial arts cinema. She's MUCH better "smaller." When it's just her or Tilly? Or just her and Tyler? She's fine. But damn, her "This is what Starfleet is so this is what I'm about" speeches are painful. And Cornwell? The acting is fine, the character is awful. Overall, I'd give it a 7 and that's because the back half (the MU) popped a lot more often than it fizzled.
  11. Star Wars: Solo

    Well, I'd want it to succeed if it's good, not by some sort of default because $1B worth of revenue will rush to Star Wars: Ewok Imperial Troopers because "Star Wars."
  12. Star Wars: Solo

    Pretty much this.
  13. What was the last Star Trek episode you watched?

    Right. It didn't seem like it was waiting for his hot food to cool down at all.
  14. What was the last Star Trek episode you watched?

    "The Doomsday Machine." We're lucky that our crew is so clever. I mean, that was brilliant. Now, if only Federation starships had some sort of weapon they could have shot into it...some sort of missile type weapon that could have been shot into its maw that would have caused at least a 97 megaton explosion and ended the episode before it started.
  15. Star Wars: Solo

    It is. All they're doing is expanding on what's already there when most people don't seem all that thrilled about it to begin with. Hell, you like the Han Solo theme of redemption? Make a movie of some assassin in Boba Fett's guild that decides they can't do it anymore and joins the rebellion as a covert operative. Or maybe they just help people. It's a new take on the old theme, you can throw the Fett fans a cameo, and you take a chance of creating some badass NEW character that people like instead of just wringing the cash out of what's already there.
  16. Star Wars: Solo

    Solo doomed to "fail" as much as any Star Wars film can? And would that thrill the fanbase?
  17. Star Wars: Solo

    Quite a crutch that would be.
  18. What was the last Star Trek episode you watched?

    No doubt you have to account to someone in San Francisco for every torpedo discharged. Where the hell is THAT on the forms?
  19. MARVEL Movies - SPOILER Thread

    Throw a couple of lightsabers in there and "Episode X"
  20. What was the last Star Trek episode you watched?

    LOL. Spot on. And probably completely accurate.
  21. Star Wars: Solo

    It was LITERALLY nothing. So Spock needs Spock to tell him that Khan is dangerous and willl stop at nothing? Did anything that happened up until then still leave things so up in the air that he needed to take time out in a crisis to find out for sure?
  22. MARVEL Movies - SPOILER Thread

    Has a very Star Wars vibe.
  23. What was the last Star Trek episode you watched?

    What would he do? Looks like another quarter step backwards, he's gonna butt-dial some photon torpedoes and somebody's gonna get shot.
  24. What was the last Star Trek episode you watched?

    Some curious child: What does this button do? (Series finale)
