Re: Interstellar

Z: "When I watched it with my dad, he liked all of it except for the bootstrap paradox of Cooper manipulating his own timestream bit which he didn't understand. I told him, "Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey. Just go with it.""

Me too.

I really do need to watch this again... I'm sure I can answer some of my own questions.... having only seen it once .... well, there's a lot to digest.

Thanks for explaining some of that stuff Quincy.

I remember having a big problem with "Plan A" and Plan B", but it's been so long I can't remember what the problem was :-) Maybe I should fly through a wormhole and use a tesseract to communicate with myself ... lol

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

I leaning towards the "these aren't Klingons" camp. If anything the Klingons from this era probably should creatively lean toward the TOS era.

Fingers crossed anyways.

You know, if they had listened to me we would have these issues. This series would have been set after Voyager.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

What the hell are they doing with the Klingons?

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Now, about the new teaser...

Didn't really give us much.

All these pushes to the right... I'm for it as long as it's being done from a quality standpoint, but this many moves makes one wonder what the hell is going on.

Maybe they were never ready and just wanted to announce the damn thing during the 50 year celebration.

Still optimistic.

I like the cast selection.

I still wish they would have snagged D.C. Fontana to help with the writing.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

"attempt to soullessly extend the brand"

Don't agree with this at all.

Not at all.

You can say the writing in TOS was the best of the franchise, or you can say - pick your series - was my favorite, but all the series have heart and soul. Maybe not someone's cup of tea and that's fine, but you can't make a Trek top 10-20 episode list without hitting all the series if you are truly objective. Even if you don't like a series, you have to acknowledge outstanding trek.

Even the new movies have soul. .... even if it took them 3 movies to get there.

Don't agree. Oxilon had offered to let Neelix stay and "talk". Neelix was just standing ture with his shipmates.

Re: ENT S2: Second Season Recap

If you consider DS9 seasons 1&2 the best of DS9 then yes, but I'm pretty sure you won't find much company there.

Re: DS9 S5: The Darkness and the Light

"Trump IS an evil sexist, racist, hotheaded awful bigot who we should all be collectively ashamed of."

It's amazing that he was none of this before he ran against Hillary.... all while being in the public eye for over 30 years.

Re: DS9 S5: By Inferno's Light

Agree Paul.

I will add however, that Worf's fight wouldn't have neant so much to me had Martok not been there to take part.

Re: ENT S2: The Crossing

"If they just changed the aliens motives to something much more sinister, like wanting human slaves,...."

That's pretty much what they wanted. All 82 onboard Enterprise would have been captive forever had they succeeded.

Robert,

I wonder what LT Carey thought when Harry drummed up another in a day? :-)

I guess we now understand when B'Elanna got picked for Cheif Engineer.

Re: VOY S3: Remember

Wow. Es did nothing but label and lie. Wonder who received his vote? lol

From wiki: "In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion,[3] often for the troll's amusement."

I was not trolling as I reponded to Greattrekker's comment about Trump.

You however have exemplified what a troll is.

There is nothing in my post that is untrue.

Robert and I have discussed many things we don't see eye to eye on. ... and we don't hate each other. Sure politics crops up on trek message boards, there is tons of political themes in trek. Bound to happen.

Oh Es.... Trump won!!! lol .... pipe, smoke....

Reverse aging just doesn't work. How do you give birth to an old person?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I never got the impression that they are born "old". I think they are born like any other species, they just regress at some older age. I wish we could have known at what age this begins.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Hey - Fuller's out. I think I'd rather have this that his effort beeing tugged from two directions. It is a little more than interesting that he chose another series over Star Trek though.

Break... I saw 'Arrival' this weekend with my son. I enjoyed it immensley. If I were to critique it, I would say it was pretty slow at spots, but that's OK. Great story and well executed visuals. No "pew-pew" needed. I ended up feeling like Sisko discussing linear and non-linear time with my son :-)

If real SCI-FI is your thing, then I highly recommend it.
