Re: VOY S7: Author, Author

Chrome,

I quoted the entire passage to prove he never called him a person. Read my last line verbatum to see my point.

Well, let's discuss the logic of this episode. The ruling is: the doctor can't be a person but he can be an artist. I'm just going to pull the simple definition from Webster from artist: "1. a person who creates art."

So how can you be a person who creates art and not be a person? Can the judge explain that? Can Voyager's computer create art and be considered an artist? Since the EMH runs on Voyager's computer, I don't see what the difference is or how the ruling here clarifies anything logically.
================================================================

I hate when I miss these things. Sorry Chrome.

He didn't identify the EMH as a person.

"ARBITRATOR: We're exploring new territory today, so it is fitting that this hearing is being held at Pathfinder. The Doctor exhibits many of the traits we associate with a person. Intelligence, creativity, ambition, even fallibility. But are these traits real, or is the Doctor merely programmed to simulate them? To be honest, I don't know. Eventually we will have to decide, because the issue of holographic rights isn't going to go away. But at this time, I am not prepared to rule that the Doctor is a person under the law. However, it is obvious he is no ordinary hologram and while I can't say with certainty that he is a person, I am willing to extend the legal definition of artist to include the Doctor. I therefore rule that he has the right to control his work. I'm ordering all copies of his holo-novels to be recalled immediately. "

He's an artist. Now, artist's include holograms.

Robert,

"PICARD: You knew what you had to do. I just made sure you listened to yourself. Goodbye, Cadet."

I think it's Picard looking out for his own.

If the truth would have ever come out, who recommended his entry into Star Fleet?

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Robert,

I don't know that that's true for RO. Just why isn't it "Star Wars"? Evil empire, the rebels, the force, Darth Vader, weird aliens, Star Wars spacecraft... quite honestly, aside from not being "the story", it did Star Wars better than Star Wars did in many ways. No Jar Jar, no Ewoks swinging from trees, no midichlorians... what's not to like? At the very least, it didn't copy a previous movies' story and call itself a success.

Glad you liked Chuckles, but he's just a stereotype indian... front and center see his tatoo...

I liked Chuckles too for the most part. He would have been the same had he been just a regular dude.

RandonThoughts,

Neelix must believe that lying is acceptable behavior. He lied to Janeway in Caretaker as well (which resulted in her crew being in danger) and Janeway still let them onboard.

The Judge,

Don't mean to bust your bubble, but no genocide was committed here. He made them move, which in the 24th century isn't that big a deal.

Roddenbury's boy Kirk committed the genocide.

Re: DS9 S3: Second Skin

Agree Peter. One thing they did with the Cardassians that made them more palatable was to bring family into the frey. Episodes like 'Cardassians' and the whole ordeal wil Dukat's daughter really opened them up to us; made them less cookie cutter bad guys.

Re: Star Trek Beyond

Chrome,

"That's not to say that I'm against a more inclusive Trek, but I also don't think writers should be constricted to follow some sort of social justice agenda to appease fans. Following that agenda usually doesn't always work out. For example, I haven't heard anyone say how great it was to finally make Sulu openly gay in this movie. It's because there's a difference between organically addressing diversity through storytelling and throwing in diversity for diversity's sake."

*** Yanks stands and applauds ***

Well said.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

Chuck,

"One need go no further than the "Alien Nation" series of mid-1990s to find this exact concept, even down to the Binnaum (the Tenktonese version of the cogenitor) who was also saddled with what appeared to be an under-educated or under-appreciated image. The only real difference between the cogenitor of ENT vs. the Binnaum of AN fame was that the Binnaum, while relatively "dumb" in appearance (Albert was at a menial job with the police department) was in fact a revered figure in the religious rites of the Tenktonese."

I wasn't aware. I keep tellng myself to watch that series.

That said, nothing is new on TV. Nothing. Just wrapped differently.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

Don't agree Real Human Robot.

On a couple fronts...

#1, this isn't a US asylumn issue.

#2. None of these exist buy any information we know other than "I can read now" from "it".

"refugees fleeing persecution have the right to be granted asylum. That Charles' predicament constitutes persecution is quite clear, given its definition within, for example, the United States' court system, which lists numerous types of harm that apply here: forced labor (and possibly sexual abuse), slavery, unlawful detention, intimidation, interference with privacy, deliberate deprivation of employment and other life essentials, and restrictions on access to education."

You, as so many do, are making HUMAN assumptions based on human values learn from human experiences on Earth.

You can't do that. You have no evidence that this "it" was abused or persecuted at all.

Re: BSG S1: The Miniseries

Ratings is commonly used to justify a series "success". By the end of BSG, they had an all out campaign in an attempt to find new viewership. Not that I hated the series, (I bought it) had they continued what they started in seasons 1 & 2 I would have put it up there with Firefly. Too many unanswered big questions in the finale. They had no idea what they were doing during seasons's 3 & 4.

Enterprise suffered from what I call "B&B fatigue". They had just done too much trek over the years. Coto brought new life in but it was too late. Now, a new series is coming out, trying to be different and getting pummeled for it.... and not one episode has even aired yet. I swear, there is no fan-base harder to please than trek. Coto gave them exactly what they were clammoring for and they didn't come back and watch.

Jammer's right, we should compair apple to apples. The problem is, the Apples for ENT S1&2 weren't fresh and new so it took unjust criticism for that while BSG was ALL new and folks loved it for that. The wrting on BSG early was outstanding too. What's funny is, even though we think BSG was so good, especially early on, it still didn't pull really good numbers. One has to wonder why.
