Re: DSC S1: Despite Yourself

So I have a basic MU question that I don't understand...

If a secondary universe is supposed to mirror a primary universe in some fashion with some details changed, they must have some common starting point where the two break off - Sliding Doors style, right? For example, in this MU, there are a lot of similarities (ships, names, people, languages, technology) that seem to indicate that the two universes had an extremely similar history up to some particular point in time. When was that point - two centuries ago, two minutes ago, twenty thousand years ago, the Big Bang?

It seems to me that the further back in history the common point is, the more radical the differences would be between the universes. To the point that anything more than 50-100 years earlier makes the MU unrecognizable.

What am I missing? Or is this just a sci-fi trope i should simply grin and accept?

Re: BSG S4: Guess What's Coming to Dinner?

I love the fact that nearly 5 years after the original air date, people are STILL contributing with comments. A testament to the quality of both the show (good job, Mr. Moore) and the blog (good job, Mr, Jammer)!

Re: TNG S5: The Inner Light

I just watched this episode for the first time. For me it was better than 99% of TNG episodes. It's my new favorite along with any episode featuring Q or the Borg. I'm looking forward to watching season 6 and 7. These are moments I'll never live again; watching TNG for the first time.

Re: BSG S3: Maelstrom

Just an anachronistic note about this episode...

In the close-up of Starbuck's mother's ashtray, you can clearly see the word "Marlboro" printed on the butt of one of the cigarettes. A sign that Philip Morris is one of the Five??
