Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

Episode 8-Worst episode yet. This week we are taken into filler inception. A show that is nothing but filler gives us it’s own filler episode. I’m sure someone will try to defend this episode because “Easter eggs dude!”. Yes they mentioned Kirk and shown some Gorns oh boy. #Clever #EasterEggs #FanService

Re: DS9 S6: Valiant

@sskoog

I know exactly what you are saying. Imo how good any show is lives and dies on your relationship with the characters and how well they are written. For me a lot of political/war episodes seem to “zoom out” and get too large scale, too much going on, too many moving pieces. While some of the comedy episodes that focus on just a few characters show more of who they are and I find heartwarming

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

I don’t know why they insist on playing Boimler snitching on everyone each week as comedy. It’s not funny it just makes him more hateable. I don’t think “what a teacher’s pet brown nosed! LULZ!”, instead I think “man I would hate this guy irl”. They make all the characters unrelatable. It’s sad when Mariner seems to be the most fleshed our realistic character

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

@Rahul
I can tell you why I continue watching it. I accept Lower Decks as a filler mid tier show. It’s only 25 minutes and I don’t think it’s garbage although I think there are about a million different interesting Trek shows that could have been made in place of it. I’ve seen every other episode made of Trek and it’s not like I find Lower Decks offensive or get angry. Basically I watch the 25 minutes each week, shrug, and go on with my life. That’s as good a summary of Lower Decks and the feelings it elicits as anything

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

@Galadriel

Saying Lower Decks is “better than TNG season one” is a little silly. They are vastly different shows. I could spend all day naming TV shows that had a better first season than TNG. Lower Decks is filler. It’s there to string subscribers along until the next live action season of Trek. The “Easter eggs” are very in your face and pandering. Like when Mariner rattled off a bunch of Trek characters a few episodes back, or now episode six mentioning all the famous historical figures featured in holodeck episodes, or a few episodes back when they showed a giant Hor’gahn (the Risa wooden figure) in the middle of the screen for almost ten seconds. It’s not smart or clever. I don’t hate Lower Decks but there’s no need to pretend like everything about it is middle of the road entertainment. It’s never going to be a classic must see series or matter in any way to the Trek universe (the way TNG season one does, even despite its shortcomings).

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

@Adam @Booming

Adam pointed out a white man was being insulted by a person of color and because of recent trends and direction of the Star Trek franchise voiced concerns. Booming heard the call to arms and rushed to save the world. Someone is out there not towing the far left line!!! Can only mean they are “on the right”! Only yet another cringe inducing never ending political discussion will help Booming save the world! Where Booming refuses to ever see middle ground and only puts people in convenient stereotypical boxes. I have watched all released episodes of Lower Deck I’m not a big fan but I can’t really say it’s “woke”, that’s not one of the problems. Adam I have to say you did judge this off the trailer and your assumptions were not correct. However you are not crazy for your line of thinking. Booming please calm down. Adam is not out to dismantle your world and everything you stand for.

Remember when you said you never read any of comments last week and refused to read any of them? This is the third time you’ve replied directly to one of them when they weren’t addressed to you. Not much of a shocker that you are a deceitful person that would lie though. Let’s get real you’ve read every single comment I’ve posted in the past couple weeks. I’m not going to comment on the content of your last post it’s just moronic and desperately argumentative.

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

@Elliott

In what way is Booming saying he wants to “fistfuck” a straight character and straight actor who plays that character supposed to be construed as anything but a rape joke? It’s a unwilling participant which makes the act violent and painful. Where’s this “homophobia” you’re claiming I conjured? I really take offense to you trying to pin something like that on me.

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

@Trent

You are actively looking for politics where there are none. I did not say “gay fantasies bad” or whatever nonsense you’re trying to pin on me. I’ve never been on “4chan” in my entire life, I’ve never voted for a republican in my entire life, I have no idea who Memology is and I explained exactly why I posted that video. Because it was the only thing I could find that provided undisputed proof of people that Booming said “did not exist”. And I clearly said ignore any politics and focus on the screenshots of the people shown in the video. For the second time I’ll again say you and Booming know more about this guy who made the video than I do. But you and Booming STILL need to do your tired “right wing!!!” card as a way to shift focus from the original points. I’m not the person your assumptions lead you to attack. Saying that a publicly posted fantasy about wanting to sodomize a straight man with a fist is violent is not homophobia as I said before. It’s a violent fantasy. I called it such. The only card you can try to play is “homophobia tho....” because otherwise you’d have to admit that in reality yes booming publicly typed out a explicit, inappropriate and graphic fantasy. Do you really think I would care if anyone said “Chakotay is hot” or “It might be worth a night in the brig for breaking protocols and being romantic with Chakotay”? Because that’s what Mikey originally said about a female. He didn’t mention forcing anything graphically that would cause pain the way Booming did. You’re going to have to learn to stop making assumptions about people’s character and attempting to put them in convenient stereotyped boxes. I’m not your right wing boogeyman

@CaptainMercer

Yep I see what you’re saying. They played with the appearance of lighting more in this episode like when they are playing cards it’s dark and light is casted different places and then in another scene they make it very bright like doctors office when they are in a big room with fluorescent overhead ceiling lights. Also they did some pseudo 3d cgi effects a few times in this episode. Even the ship monitors look like rendered images or something

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

Just watched the fourth episode and I do think it’s the best so far. Still nothing to write home about considering the series is filler this was a decent episode. There seemed to also be something different in the animation style. I don’t know enough about animation to say exactly but there is a clear difference in look from the other three episodes

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

@Booming

I absolutely did not say I wanted to see people who made jokes about that 5 year old being killed prosecuted. I said I wished there was a way to prosecute the people donating to the fund to have his killer bailed. I then said I’m sure that’s not possible. Also you and Trent keep bringing up this Memology character. The two of you know way more about him than I do. I do not know anything about him. Like I very clearly said, I could not find the original source I read that revealed people were mocking the death of that five year old and donating to his killer’s fund. You said that wasn’t true remember? That’s why I posted that video. It’s all I could find. I explicitly said do not focus on whether or not the video is “right wing” just focus on the fact that he is revealing screenshots and names of the multiple people making fun of a murdered five year old and donating to his killer. I did this because you said THE PEOPLE DIDNT EXIST! And that’s where the real problem was for you. I unequivocally showed that yes these people you said didn’t exist in fact did exist and were doing exactly what I said they were. You can’t handle being PROVEN wrong. So you did a little mental gymnastics and turned the narrative into “it was a right wing video though”. It wasn’t about right or left wing anything and I clearly said that and warned the video seemed to have right wing leanings. Whatever though. As you’re known to say after a nice rant of your own- “Trek please guys”. I’m done

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

@Booming

You’re going off the deep end. I’ve never even typed the words “free speech” on this site, I’ve barely ever touched on race and nothing I’ve said could be construed as racist, I’ve definitely never said anything homophobic. You are grasping at straws because I called out that violent description you gave of sodomizing an actor with a fist. Since you want to bring up the term “nazi”, let’s talk about it. I remember you getting soooo bent out of shape and needing to valiantly get on your soapbox when some called Kurtzman a fascist. Kurtzman, a Jewish man, could not be called fascist! Booming had to take the mantle! Remind us all of the horrible atrocities of WW2. But now? I’m a “nazi” according to Booming. Flippantly using that somber word that should not be tossed around lightly. What would a holocaust survivor think of that? Have you no empathy? What if a Survivor was read these forums? That’s what you said to me after all when I told you to lighten up about someone saying an actress was hot. “A 15 year old female teenager might have a different perception of a guy objectifying and fantasizing a female actress” you said! Oh Booming. Tsk tsk. I expected so much more from you.

Re: VOY S5: The Disease

@Booming
Okay well I’m pretty sure there are not any 15 year old females posting on here and if there are I don’t think they’d be offended. Neither of us are qualified to speak for these imaginary girls. Personally I would never automatically think they would be so shaken and mentally weak that someone making an offhand comment about an actress being hot would just send their world tumbling down. Also you are being very dramatic by bringing up “prison”. I think he said something to the effect of the alien would be worth a night in the brig? (Worth breaking protocols by being romantic with her). That truth is such a far cry from the desperate painted narrative of him saying “she’s worth prison”. He’s just having fun. Try it some time.

Re: TNG S4: The Drumhead

@Booming

Oh please Booming. You insert yourself into any discussion there is, leave multi paragraph diatribes, and then end it with “Star Trek please” as your insurance policy. You do it almost daily. So don’t try to lecture me okay? Your criticism in this case is self criticism. You don’t speak for Jammer anyway so stop posturing like you have any power. Don’t tell me who I am or am not disrespecting you don’t speak for me. Make sure you STRICTLY stick to Star Trek on this site from here on out since you want to be the authority. Typing “Star Trek please” after you type a novel on politics or just one of the random arguments you get into isn’t going to be good enough anymore.

Re: TNG S4: The Drumhead

Booming there absolutely is an issue here. I’ll try to find the exact news source to link that I read but this video covers it pretty well. Instead of doing your usually MO of trying to magically discredit something by calling it “right wing”, try to focus on the facts if this video showing multiple people by name and showing exactly what they said. These are the wackos I’ve referred to in the past that you try to dismiss. They exist.
