Re: DSC S2: General Discussion

@methane from what I’ve read CBS tried to sell the shorts to Netflix for $40,000,000 so they could get more money and they would be available in foreign markets but they wouldn’t bite

Re: DSC S2: General Discussion

I was really looking forward to Calypso. Even in a short, the idea that it's 1,000 years in the future and is a guy stuck with an AI has the potential for some good sci-fi.

Instead it was crap. They did nothing with it. Guy shows up to ship, wants to get to home planet, AI says it can't leave, they spend some time together, then AI gives guy a shuttle. That's it.

It shouldn't even count as a story. Stories usually have plots and turns, even short ones. Calypso was literally just a guy hanging out on the ship for a bit with no troubles and then leaving.

I have to ask, where did that AI come from? It wasn't in season 1 and the ship still looks brand new. Are they saying the Discovery always had this canon breaking AI? Why did the ship still look the same after 1,000 years? Actually I can answer that. Because these shorts were filmed desperately and quickly during season 2 as a way for CBS to try and gouge foreign markets for money (that almost nobody took them up on) so they didn't have time to redress the set.

Dude didn't even bother to ask what happened to the crew? Also it's 1,000 years in the future and humans are basically the same as we are now? Social structure and everything? No hint as to what the Federation might look like that far in the future?

It pains me that Calypso was so nothing. Absolutely nothing happened. It was a waste of 20 minutes.

Re: DSC S2: General Discussion

Yeah this doesn’t seem like a good idea. Oversaturation and watered down Trek is what killed it in the first place.

Jammer, I wouldn’t blame you one bit if you skipped reviewing this new animated series

Re: DSC S2: General Discussion

And now they've announced that a Star Trek Animated series similar in tone to Rick and Morty from one of its writers is coming out.

What the hell is going on over there???

I find myself wondering what color blood Human-Vulcan hybrids have.

I'm guessing it's the color of chocolate syrup.

Re: ENT S3: The Forgotten

I don't think the Degra-Trip scene worked as well here as the similar Kira-Damar scene from "Tacking Into The Wind", and I think it's mostly Trip's fault. Trip has been rather petulant about it for some time, and unlike the Cardassians, the Xindi were reacting to an existential threat, or so they were made to believe.

Trellium-D is established to have a profound mental effect on Vulcans, but was it ever explained why it also alters their physical appearance, making them look straight out of a zombie movie?

Re: ENT S3: Extinction

Yes it was dumb for Archer to want to keep the virus around, but why did Phlox even give him the choice?

Why did Phlox say "Hey captain, I saved some of the virus in this test tube here in this little cubby.. Of course it should be destroyed like yesterday, but I didn't yet so you could tell me not to for a dumb reason.

Re: ENT S4: Babel One

I agree with the criticism of the out of place technology in the 22nd century, and the defenses of it are even more absurd.

Technology isn't abandoned, it's perfected. If the Romulans are using ships that can masquerade as anything here, they wouldn't just go back to conventional ships by two centuries later. More likely is that ALL ships in the 24th century would be shapshifting ships, with a "space race" centered on who could out-stealth and out-defeat stealth each other. The Enterprise, -A, -B, -C, -D, -E would all be shapeshifting ships.

Same logic goes for remotely piloted ships. If it could be done here, it would only have been perfected in the two centuries since, not abandoned. By the 24th century, ALL combat ships would be remotely piloted drones.

That's CLEARLY not what he have in the 23rd and 24th centuries.

That this ridiculous stuff could be done in the 22nd century, but a ship than can separate its saucer section and its drive section is state of the art two centuries later, is laughable.

Re: ENT S4: Cold Station 12

The timeline on Archer's father doesn't seem to fit. Here it's stated that he died when Jonathan was 12, and had deteriorated for years before that, but in Broken Bow's flashbacks, he seems totally healthy and the kid playing Jonathan seemed at least 12.

Re: ENT S2: The Crossing

I have no problem with the destruction of the ship at the end.

When you're dealing with entities that "will not stop" or "will not rest" and will just harass the next visitor to them, that's really all you can do.

In TNG's "Power Play", they were able to re-trap the entities on the planet and drop a warning buoy.

That couldn't be done here...there was no trap, and the ship can move.

Re: DS9 S7: 'Til Death Do Us Part

Kira's indignance at Sisko marrying Kasidy was very offputting.

I don't care what Sisko's parentage is...they have no right to deny a sentient being of one of the fundamental aspects of life. Kira endured the Occupation, so I'd think she'd be more understanding. She certainly was allowed to have whatever relationships and lovers she wanted.

Re: DS9 S7: Penumbra

On Odo,

By this point I'm surprised he still has the trust of the crew.

Twice now he's essentially thrown everyone under bus when a visitor came. It happened first with the she-Founder, and then again with Laas.

Re: DS9 S7: Afterimage

I couldn't blame Garak at all for lashing out at Quark's...the people around him were virtually standing in his lap. If Julian thought Garak was so rude, he could have offered to switch seats with him and see how he liked it.

Re: DS9 S6: Tears of the Prophets

Also some nice continuity when it was Kira that took command of the Defiant...when Sisko said that Worf wouldn't get command after the events of "Change Of Heart", he wasn't kidding. Almost expected to see Worf back in yellow.
