  1. Episode 1.15 “Will You Take My Hand?” Discussion Thread

    IMHO, adherence to supposed "canon" is virtually identical to fundamentalist religion. Both are wide open to personal interpretation of "Correctness" and as a result, are total failures from the start.
  2. The Sir Patrick Stewart Topic

    ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ He certainly is a dapper old dude. On the other hand...
  3. Your overall impression after season 1

    I don't give a flying flip about either supposed "canon" or "continuity". Each series stands alone for me and doesn't have to stick to minutia from previous series. Given that, I thought Discovery was excellent, easily the best structured first Trek season ever. I liked all of the major characters and found Saru and Tilly to be my personal breakout favorites. Burnham is also a personal favorite and her development in S1 leaves a ton of room for continuing seasons. S1 left me hungry for more.
  4. Favorites in "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 1 (Spoilers Included)

    She is Airiam. I'm expecting her story to come to the front in Season 2.
  5. Greetings

    Plug in your guitar and post away.
  6. Greetings and salutations

    Welcome to the party. I'm bending my brain figuring out everything odd about your clock avatar and finally decided it is from the Mirror Universe. Since things are inverted there, I think I'll call you -_-.
  7. Falcon Heavy did it!!!!!

    Unfortunately the center booster crashed into the drone ship but everything else was spectacular. That’s one bad-ass booster.
  8. Is it time to give up on Discovery? (Spoilers)

    Maybe the outlier here but I don't give a damn about supposed "canon". For me, Discovery is telling a great story with huge twists and surprises and real character development and I'm here to stay.
  9. Voyager"s planetary landing

    I had the same thought for a couple of seconds then decided they were only to stabilize the ship in contact with the ground and not to hold its entire mass.
  10. The Sylvia Tilly Appreciation Thread...

    Finally got the chance last night to view Ep. #12 along with thee Lady Sho-Rin. I really liked it but she is put off by the amount and graphic nature of the violence. We both agree, however, that it "Needs more Tilly."
  11. The Sylvia Tilly Appreciation Thread...

    I haven't yet watched the latest episode so I don't know what she might have done there but I join you in your Tilley-fest. Mary Wiseman has appeared on "After Trek" a couple of times and adds some further depth to the character she is realizing for us. The sequences where she has to act as Captain are simply acting gold. As I said in the episode thread, "Need more Tilly!"
  12. Episode 1.12 "Vaulting Ambition" Discussion Thread

    Needs more Tilly!
  13. Tell a Star Trek Story in Six Words.

    [Don't know how I missed this 3 years ago.] Enterprise warp core, made from eggshells.
  14. The Maybe-Im-Willing-to-Give-Enterprise-a-Second-Look Thread

    Best advice I can offer is to ignore everybody's advice. A Night In Sickbay is one of my favorite episodes if you let it be played for humor as intended. To each his (her) own.
  15. Episode 1.11 "The Wolf Inside" Discussion Thread

    One thing not yet mentioned is another great performance by Mary Wiseman as Tilly the spore/medical engineer. We have timid Tilly, brilliant Tilley and certified badass Tilley all in two episodes. IMHO, she's the breakout performer at this point.
