Re: DSC S3: The Sanctuary

BioNTech did not have the distribution power of Pfizer, so it was a collaborative effort between companies and governments. That you're trying to politicize something so important to the world shows more than a touch sadism.

Re: DSC S3: The Sanctuary

BioNTech received hundreds of millions for its mNRA vaccine candidates and their stock is soaring now. I doubt their feelings are hurt if a few U.S. news outlets don’t mention them in every sentence.

Re: DSC S3: The Sanctuary

Wrong. It’s called the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and Germany is mentioned in nearly every article where it’s relevant. Speaking of relevant, why are we talking about this?

Re: DSC S3: Far From Home

I liked this one. It felt more “Star Trek” to me than last week’s episode because it was about a starship crew. I’m really looking forward to seeing where the show goes. I also like how the show illustrates the idea of cyclic history - we got an utopian future in the 23rd & 24th century, but then it went into decline because the one material the entire starship industry was built upon turned out to be very important.

I don’t see why they called it a two-parter, though. It felt like two separate episodes instead of one long episode.

I’m looking forward to seeing how they handle the federation reformation (or even if that will end up being the goal of the crew). I’m very, very glad that s4 will be made, and where they will go with the 32nd century exploration.

Re: TOS S2: The Immunity Syndrome

@okrad del diablo

You have some serious anger issues, racism issues and a glorification of violence. Your way is clearly “the American way”. Democracy through the barrel of a gun, other cultures can go F themselves in the face of our superior might....

Why you watch Star Trek at all is hard to fathom, and I say that as a fairly right wing individual myself. Roddenberry’s pacifism annoys me at times, but I don’t go around hating on an entire race with an interesting and well developed culture. God forbid anyone like you would ever represent our species, you’d get us all killed because someone looked at you wrong or failed to recognise the superiority of humans (the deep irony that you have a god complex toward humans (and Americans I suspect) while hating the Vulcans for the same.

It’s reactionary, low-intelligence bullshit of the highest order, and your comments in this thread where you are violently hating on Spock (wanting him slapped harder until he bleeds) are deeply disturbing, to say nothing of cowardly (anonymous Internet thug talks violently about others, yawn). I worry for whoever you live with, no doubt if they looked at you wrong you’d give them a slapping too.

Seriously, get help. And by the way, I don’t love Vulcans, I’m not a pacifist or a serious Trek fan, so don’t try and misdirect toward those things. This is about your unpleasantness and nothing else.

Re: TNG S1: Conspiracy

Who else thought the only shocking thing about this episode was the message of racism? No, i don’t throw the term around freely and I would love to be convinced otherwise. In college literature classes we were taught to look for the writer’s intended message in a sentence or two, the key “word” being “race” here. Not once do they refer to the alien species as anything other than “races”. When compromised Quinn tries to convince Picard that his real issue was how hard it is to recruit other “races” in the federation it does stand awkward and out of place, but it’s the first sneaky clue the writers give us about the real message. There was No reason that such an intelligent alien would make up such a lame excuse. Moving on, when Tyrla speaks to Picard and he asks “What race are you” finally as Remmick dies he explains they seek peaceful coexistence, but in Very atypical to the Star Trek fashion, they kill this most intelligent alien race! They take no prisoners, make no effprt to seek out and discover more about this fascinating, intelligent, brand new life form from so far away. The message therefore, i deduce is one against allowing other races to come in freely and rise among the ranks. Again, i would love to be proven otherwise. I was trying to understand the hidden message behind this extremely cheesy 80’s sci-fi ep and could not find anything else. But this Is Star Trek, even the cheesiest eps have a message in them. Long rant anyway LLAP

Wow...this guy came onboard and savagely murdered dozens of people, and they made his punishment be 'banishment into an uncomfortable relationship.' I guess it's like ol' Jean-Luc said that time: "We are not qualified to be your judges." How did this incident not find its way into Mudd's records for Kirk to discover, for one thing?

Re: DSC S1: Lethe

Based on the 'it's online, so anything goes - sex, cursing, and violence' rumor mill from before the series launched, I think it's worth acknowledging that DSC chose not to present an explicit sex scene with Lorca and Cornwell in this ep. Not even boobs or a butt were shown. I'm a little surprised, although I think they basically said close to the launch that there wouldn't be nudity, or maybe that there wouldn't be much, anyway. ENT was far more explicit on broadcast with some of the racier Trip/T'Pol scenes.

I was getting tons of buffering problems and got booted back to the android app's main screen once. I never have this issue with netflix, huluplus, youtube, or even CW. I wish there was a download option like netflix offers. I am paying for the commercial free cbs aa plan.

"Easter egg: Nice to see Connies mentioned (not sure if Burnham had to mention the Enterprise - there are others, right?)."

It makes sense for Enterprise to come immediately to her mind if her 'brother' Spock is serving there.

Re: DSC S1: Choose Your Pain

I would just like to point out that the 'mirror' in 'mirror universe' is a metaphor. As in, actual mirrors (the objects) shouldn't have anything to do with the alternate quantum reality nicknamed 'the mirror universe.' The alternate Stammets inside the mirror makes for nice imagery, but how in the world does it make any actual sense in-universe?

Re: DSC S1: Choose Your Pain

@Hank
"Yeah, sure, Lorca escaping so easily was a typical trope..."

I'm pretty sure Lorca's escape was part of the Klingons' plan, not merely due to his skillz. Also part of the plan was for his arrogance regarding his skillz to blind him to the fact that they let him go.

Re: DSC S1: Choose Your Pain

So Lorca was dropping key phrases such as 'ghost ship,' to see who might leak info to the Klingons. He said 'ghost ship' to Ash, but later attributed it to Mudd's listening device. But couldn't Ash have passed it to the Klingons instead, as far as Lorca knows? Eh.

Lorca left a fellow prisoner behind. No other captain on any series would have done that.

Re: DSC S1: Choose Your Pain

This episode had a more of one element the show needs to express - human feeling and friendships. I hope it is a sign of things to come.

I wondered after watching tonight whether I liked this episode entirely on its own merits, or just in contrast to the dreary episodes that preceded it.

Re: DSC S1: The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry

Spore Drive might actually give them an out, if the show proves to be as unpopular as I suspect it will. Simply say that the Spore Drive can make you shift between universes and strand them in the actual Prime Universe where everything is much closer to the original TOS timeline. Destroy the ship in the process so that their technology doesn't contaminate the real Prime verse. Kill off the unpopular characters and put the popular characters on a prime Starship to continue into season 2.

Did anyone notice that they killed 'Zaphod' on the mine planet? I noticed it in the captions. Lol

Re: DSC S1: The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry

I think one fundamental problem is that this is a show about miserable people. And nobody wants to watch miserable people. Real life is miserable enough. I'm not saying it has to be a dick-joke comedy all the time like Orville, but for God's sake, has anybody even cracked a smile once on the show? Maybe Captain G (yeah, and see what happened to her)? There's no charm to these people. They have no charisma. Jim Kirk had a sparkle in his eye that made people love him. Hell, even Wesley (the boy?!) had more likeability than any of the cast here with the possible - possible - exception of Saru. Everybody's either bland or an asshole!

I know 10 year old me is spinning in his ... uh... grave, but I just can't get any enjoyment out of this Trek incarnation so far.

Re: TNG S3: Tin Man

I hate Riker in this episode. I've begun to see him as an extremely arrogant and rude loudmouth. I get that he's supposed to be authoritative but he comes across as angry, sanctimonious and domineering. Picard less so but this episode is really judgmental to stressed out people. We know nobody likes us but in real life people have better manners on both sides. Tam would likely be more careful about being a jerk and the people he interacts with would bite their tongues more with some understanding of an obviously troubled mind. There's zero sympathy, patronization by Troi and they generally made out "normal" people to be A-holes. They really lost touch with how people behave in this episode. It really bugs me how one-dimensional they made the characters, except Data. Data was the only one I liked in this episode. The only one with some "humanity".

Re: VOY S2: Projections

It's interesting to me how few comments there are on the most obvious, glaring and massive Plot-Hole ever:
How would Zimmerman, back on Jupiter Station and prior to ANY communication reaching Starfleet as to what happened to voyager know that Neelix and Kes exitsted? At All?
How would it know the original doctor on board was gone and the EMH was the replacement? How would Zimmerman have had ANY idea whatsoever that B. Torres, a Maquis, would end up being a Lt. and Chief Engineer?
How would Zimmerman have known about the Kazon?

This episode was written without thinking the plan all the way through... and how Jammer could say that every potential plot hole was covered is mind boggling. The Plot holes were bigger than the Delta Quadrant.

Re: VOY S4: Prey

Everyone is saying that 7 was right. Well she wasn't, you don't just throw someone who is not an enemy to the wolves. Especially when they could have been a very powerful ally.

There are always infinite other possibilities for endings, this one sucked, 1 possible ending would be for the 'prey' to go through the singularity and then come back with a bunch of ships and annihilate the Hirogen hunters.

And why didn't the doctor stop her.
And why didn't Janeway throw 7 in the brig.
And again, why didn't Janeway throw 7 in the brig.

Janeway is a stupid arrogant hypocrite.

Janeway saw the Hirogen as a potential ally but not the 'prey', why?

Re: DS9 S3: Visionary

Way late, but Jack: Because they don't know what they're dealing with yet. It could be someone inside the station, or someone outside of it. Raising shields and powering up weapons could cause them to react prematurely (or for all they know raising the shields could cause the explosion), it was a point that was brought up in the episode.

Re: DS9 S2: Playing God

I disagree almost completely. This was a pretty terrible episode in all aspects.

The technobabble and nonsensical plot is just too much. The vole plot device was unnecessary and not executed very well, and the fact that a proto-universe that gets stuck to a shuttle like gum is bizarre enough but it's only topped by the fact that it's solved by just shoving it back in the apparently soon to be consumed gamma quadrant. Out of sight out of mind, apparently. The fact that the proto-universe could contain a civilization was an interesting plot point that was brought up and then proceeded to have no relevance or progression beyond being a reason not to destroy it. The episode reeks of wasted potential.

The interaction between the initiate and dax is trite and unconvincing (partially due to the initiate's absolutely terrible acting) and no real change or understanding is shown, we don't get any sense of revelation or character development, they just kind of go through the motions without any real conviction.

The final scene through the wormhole has no tension or real drama, and the comment about it looking good on his record seemed a very last minute way to bring some sort of relevance and growth back to his character yet it failed in both regards.
