Re: DS9 S4: Hard Time

@ Skater777

"Brilliant acting performances and intriguing story. I was troubled that there are never consequences for people who screw with Starfleet. O'Brien was mentally assaulted and his tormentors get off scot free?"

Well, Star Trek fans had no issue with Picard getting mind-raped during 'Inner Light' so...

Re: DS9 S3: The Search, Part I

@ Peter G.

"Because if they got it in any way other than through Romulan consent and under Romulan control, they would be breaking the Treaty of Algernon, which I assume would lead to immediate war."

Not buying this.

#1 - Treaty of Algeron was a peace treaty signed between the United Federation of Planets and the Romulan Star Empire in 2311, following the events of the Tomed Incident. The Treaty of Algeron was signed approximately 160 years after the conclusion of the Earth-Romulan War. The Khitomer Accords is the treaty with the Klingons that forbids the Federation from developing a cloaking device. (which on it's face is ridiculous)

#2 - You don't go to war over asking an ally for something. There is more risk of war over clandestinely acquiring it from an enemy of the Federation.

Poor DS9 writing.

Re: ENT S3: Proving Ground

@ RonB,

Yes, the Xindi knew a ship was in The Expanse. They knew since the episode 'The Xindi'. They chose to not pursue as that would possibly give away their location.

Re: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

This movie suffers from biting off more that it could chew.

It has some truly cringeworthy moments (Uhura dance) and most all the stuff in the desert town looks really low budget, but it has good parts too.

If you are going to make a movie about God, you need to go all the way.

Re: MAND S1: Chapter 1: The Mandalorian

@Dave in MN

"I want to defend The Mandalorian and say it's also "escapist" and "fun", but recent behind-the-scenes events with the production have ruined any goodwill the show had built up with me."

I LOVED watching this thing and I'm not even a Star Wars nut. "Escapist" and "fun" fit the bill perfectly. Plenty of SW Easter eggs that I didn't know about while watching the episodes that I had to learn about afterward. It made me feel the same way I felt watching old trek on TV.

I was already scratching my head as to what season 3 was going to offer now that the biggest draw is gone and BF is off to another series, but now that another cast member has been scrapped for all the wrong reasons I'm done.

I'll still listen to the theme though, just love it.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

@Silly,

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

"Problems:

* They bring in Khan, and there’s this big reveal in the brig that he’s Khan. The onscreen characters are like, “uh, so” as is anyone who was familiar with Wrath and guessed it instantly. Anyone not familiar is like “uh, who?”"

Yup, only Trek fans knew what that meant.

"* Khan in Wrath had history with Kirk and company and one hell of a grudge because of the death of his wife. Here, nope."

Kirk hadn't stranded Khan on Ceti-Alpha 5 yet in this timeline.

"* In Wrath, Kirk screamed “KHAAAN!” as a ruse to trick Khan. Here it was screamed by Spock in real emotion after Kirk died kicking the warp drive back together. Why?"

THE worst part of the movie.

"* Khan was intelligent but not experienced in building 23RD CENTURY WEAPONS. Why would the Admiral think Khan would be good at that? How did the Admiral even know Khan was alive or where to find him?"

Superior intelect... Khan was a fast learner, just like in Space Seed.

"Not everybody loved Star Trek Beyond, but I liked it, and really liked that Paramount aborted the 2009/Into Darkness arc."

I loved Beyond. How did Paramount "abort" the 2009.ID arc"?

Re: DS9 S2: Sanctuary

@ Dave in MN

"If you hold to a very basic definition of race based on skin color and eye shape; then it is logical to lump historically Jewish people in with other whites."

I don't believe this is correct at all. There is one race, the human race. The sooner everyone gets on board with that the better.

Re: MAND S2: Chapter 16: The Rescue

The "Pedro tweet" I'm referring to is the one where he compared the detainment centers on the southern US border to the concentration camps.

How that's not worse than anything Gina ever posted is beyond me. But hey, Trump was in office so all is well. I wonder what would have happened to Pedro if Obama was in office?

Now I'm not for anyone getting fired for stuff like this, but if Gina had to go... why is Pedro still there?

Re: MAND S2: Chapter 16: The Rescue

I would be very interested if someone in the "HR" department at Disney actually called Gina in, sat down and spoke to her about this. While I support an employers' right to hire and fire whom they wish, this is just another in the long line of left-leaning public lynching's. It is both in government and outside. Remember how the TEA Party was treated by the IRS? Government branches are used as weapons for the left.

It's funny how if you are employed by the US government, your social media "voice" can't be linked to your employment as long as you participate off duty, but this is somehow tolerated.

Her life-threatening, world ending tweets are here:
https://nypost.com/2021/02/11/see-gina-caranos-tweets-and-posts-that-got-her-fired/

Hell, there has been more "lively" conversations here and this is a very tempered respectful crowd. What on earth was going to threaten the monster that is Disney?

How many celebrities called for Trump's head in all manner of ways? How many of them got fired?

The only thing I can do is cancel Disney+.

Done, without seeing the last episode of WV BTW, a show I was very much enjoying.

"As far as Gina getting fired, she made the exact same analogy her still-employed co-star did, the only difference being which political party they were talking about.

Why does he still have a job?"

That tells the complete story right there.

Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

@Booming

"Does everyone now risk losing a job over simple allegations?"
Some innocent soul here said that I should not always assume the worst. So I will not assume that you are trying to divert attention away from this specific case to push some anti feminist narrative."

This certainly isn't anti-feminist... it does come from someone falsely accused. Albeit it not in a sexual nature like this.

"Away from the suffering of dozens of women (more than 400.000 rapes and sexual assaults of women and more than 50.000 rapes and sexual assaults of men in 2019 in the USA) and just have the fear that innocent people could lose their jobs for which I have no numbers. Is this actually a significant problem? So to answer your question. No, there are contracts. If they broke the contract then he can sue. If all these women accused him wrongly, he can sue them as well. And if he is guilty then let us hope that he burns in hell until the end of time."

If he's guilty, I'll light the match. While I can understand the studios' decision to save face, or maybe more appropriately error on the side "what if it's true", maybe this should just go to court? Will they resurrect the character if he's found innocent? Will he ever work again in the industry if he's found innocent? It's not like this hasn't happened before... ever play Lacrosse at Duke? I guess I'm an "innocent until proven guilty" kind of guy. If the studio could have had him stay off-screen to try and fix his relationship with his family until he's done in court. While the punishment should be severe if he's found guilty, he shouldn't be hung until his guilt is proven.

"Well, I guess the Expanse is a show I can never rewatch in a relaxed way. When he died I thought "wow that was sudden, was he a rapist or something"... sadly I was closer to the truth than I thought. 2021... Not off to a great start."

Not sure how to feel about this. "Alledged" is different than "guilty". Nothing has been proven yet, correct? Does everyone now risk losing a job over simple allegations?
