  1. REVIEW: Eaglemoss ENTERPRISE-C Concept Model

    I remember the early idea for an Enterprise-C being a battlecruiser. Everyone pretty much assumed (correctly) that the B would be Excelsior class but no one knew til we saw the briefing room what the C would be like. In a way I have to admit I like the battlecruiser version and wish there was some way we could have seen it realized as maybe another ship.
  2. The TOS Enterprise was 17-22 years old when she was refitted for TMP, going through three or four 5 year missions (one with April, one or two with Pike, one with Kirk) and supposedly a two year shakedown cruise with April right after launching. I'd think that what we see in TMP had been on the drawing board for some time. As to the Klingons; I'm inclined to believe that at some point between year 3 of TOS and maybe a year before TMP a cure for the virus was found. I wish Continues had addressed it to some degree to maybe bridge the gap. As to the Klingons on Discovery; they apparently have been secluded enough the disease didn't get to them (same as the Klingons we see in Into Darkness). I would assume that there were always a 5-10% of the population that didn't get the virus and to keep it that way they didn't go far from home.
  3. STAR TREK CONTINUES - The Final Episode Online

    Spoiler ban lifted, however; I will still give you warning; Spoilers>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I felt like this was a little of a let down after the awesome part 1, but it was still good. It just felt like we didn't get to deal more with the Espers as it felt like it was set up in part 1. Even though it wasn't, it still felt a tad quick. The whole thing with Lt. Smith just felt wrong to me. Kind of like, gee, isn't that convenient. And I feared since this series started that this would happen to McKenna, but it was nice to work in that what happened with her would be what set Spock on his quest to undergo Kolinahr pre-TMP. Sad to see the series end. If I were a rich man, I'd build a TMP Enterprise set and have them do a post TMP series.
  4. Doctor Who - General Discussion

    This is from an early 2000 special w/McCoy hosting; This one the walls open for other rooms, and the console no longer has switches and knobs (think TNG consoles). A similar take;
  5. Doctor Who - General Discussion

    I like the current one much better than the others. Why would he have controls all made from stuff you'd find in a storage bin? That was never explained. I know back in the late 90's some had used early photoshop to update the old series look and it looked quite impressive.
  6. STAR TREK CONTINUES - The Final Episode Online

    Indeed, though I do have a number of nits I'll get to when the spoiler request is over.
  7. The Way to Eden

    We connect.
  8. The Orville

    Yes. This was a case of TNGs principles getting in it's own way. It goes against what Picard said to the Borg before his assimilation when he said he/we would rather die than succumb to them, so by what they eventually did with Hugh was to say we'd rather die as a people than destroy an evil who are not really people themselves. Anyone killed by the Borg after this is on Picard's hands because the one person in the Federation who knew better than anyone what could be coming wouldn't stop it once and for all because he felt sorry for one drone.
  9. The Orville

    I thought it was really bad of her trying to save Hugh.
  10. The Orville

    That was my thinking too, but the way it's always presented (like on TOS) it's made to sound like the crew is calling in. I was watching the Immunity Syndrome last week and right after the ship hits the outer boundary that makes everyone on the bridge a little dizzy, it's like 10 seconds later we see everyone lined up at Sickbay for stimulant injections. I just thought that was rather quick. How would McCoy even be able to diagnose that in that short of time?
  11. The Orville

    Yes, good episode. Apparently the Orville is like the Enterprise-D where you can bring your kids and husbands/wives along. And yes, the humor being toned down was nice, I even got a chuckle at the damage report of someone spilling soy sauce on themselves. Speaking of damage reports, how is it on these shows they get damage reports from every deck like 5 seconds after whatever would cause the damage?
  12. STAR TREK CONTINUES - “To Boldly Go: Part 1”

    Count me in as well. If I had the money, I'd see if I could talk Vic into doing a post-TMP series and build a TMP bridge replica. Lots of untapped material there.
  13. STAR TREK CONTINUES - “To Boldly Go: Part 1”

    Yes, I didn't know she was the daughter either. She has very few acting credits, but her main profession is a stuntwoman.
  14. STAR TREK CONTINUES - “To Boldly Go: Part 1”

    Okay; Have to admit it was brilliant to suspect that someone like Section 31 would look at what happened to Mitchell and Dehner and think of the possibilities. But even taking the most calm and pacifist minds, giving them that much power it would eventually eat at them at how much good, in their minds, they could do by forcing others to do things their way. It's a shame that Section 31 wasn't thought of in TNG's time, this would have made a great two part story for them. Spock going behind Kirk's back to contact the Romulan commander (who now has a name) just seemed a little out of character for whomever it is playing the role. Loved that they even gave a little "wink" to Kirk's tombstone having the wrong middle initial. Lt. Smith is actually Yeoman Smith from Where no Man...? Was that ever established or speculated about before? Interesting that the Preservers not only seeded life in the galaxy but also put the barrier there. As I mentioned before, Nicola Bryant continues (LOL) the tradition of outstanding guest stars and when her deceit is discovered her change in tone is quite chilling.
  15. STAR TREK CONTINUES - “To Boldly Go: Part 1”

    From what I've read, the series will wrap up showing where everyone ends up at the end of the mission (Kirk promoted, Spock back to Vulcan, McCoy retiring). So I figure the main storyline will wrap up a bit early so they can get to that stuff. And still wondering what will become of McKenna.
