Some say the OG Star Trek was better, others say the Next Generation was good. They are both plebeians. Star Trek: The Pepsi Generation was the best.

I always enjoyed the idea of an illicit holo porn trading ring where simulations of people who didn't consent to their likeness being used are sold. Always fun to think of where the moral and or legal line would be drawn in a liberal utopia like ST.

I held on watching this for the longest time thinking it would simply be inferior to TOS, but I think it surpassed it in some ways. I assume it's been talked about on this board before, but I felt like bringing it up, it shows how hard STD has failed when a kickstarter does a better job than them.

The writing is on par with TOS, but without any of its lows, STC manages to keep a certain level of quality with its writing, never really sinking to the abysmal lows of episodes like "The Alternative Factor" in the original.

The casting choices are decent, I was suprised they got Scotty's son to play the role of Scotty, he actually nails the role, likely because of him being the son of the original. The guy playing Kirk actually grows into the character overtime, same could be said for McCoy's actor. With Spock, I'd say it's the weakest link, but that's only because it's a high bar to reach.

The sets and so on are pretty much on point, I was suprised they didn't just use the original sets, but after all these years since TOS, it'd be unreasonable to think they'd still be usable.

So I watched this shit, and I like Vic, but damn that dude needs to learn how to speak in a lower register. I thought he'd at least try to mimic the way Captain Kirk talks but he still sounds like a massive homo, I'm sorry to say. Anyone have any idea why he's like this?

>how, with the increasing mainstreaming of anime in north america, have these voice "actors" not been displaced and replaced with actual trained, talented actors from the mainline cartoon industry?

Because dubbing Anime is made on a massive budget. These people who run these companies realize that all they have to do is hire voice actors. That's it. They're penny pinchers. So the logical follow through is that they don't hire better actors who are more expensive.

I really confused. What makes me come off as a tumblrite? Hating Vic? Most people that aren't teenage girls hate Vic. He gets at least one proposal from a young girl at every con. Does defending him despite not liking him make me a tumblrite? He's a prideful obnoxious douchebag, but he's not guilty of any kind of sexual harassment. It's not his style.

Either way, I'm definitely not from /leftypol/ nor reddit. I've been here since /strek/ won the first attention hungry games, and am actually one of the more active cardassianposters.

This evolved from a response to a thread that I decided to make its own thread because of how extensive it is.

Why the federation is absolute shit and terrible in all possible ways.

Long live the glory of the Terran Empire.

>>20401

Impossible the federation is systemically fucked and only worked because of plot armor.

Replace it with the Terran Empire, however its no longer the federation.

I like the way you are thinking.

2) Ignoring ST writer ideology making the federation work and trying to portray the Terran Empire as bad (despite the fact that the main federation has more insane juntas then the mirror universe; hell Mirror-Archer was a die hard patriot who only wanted to help the empire and serve it, he got a little greedy by not giving the command of the magic future ship to the idiot who was wrong and tortured him.Its not his fault that his personal whore was a corrupted power hungry bitch and poisoned him and took over the future super ship) as possible we move to the next point:

Why compromise between these two retarded non-starters when a great example of a galactic empire is right there in the Klingons. Their system is somewhat handicapped in that they're retarded space niggers who always jump to rash conclusions but the foundational premise of their foreign policy is morally and pragmatically unimpeachable:

1) There can be military alliances and cooperation with foreign powers so far as it benefits the people of the empire and no further

2) No foreign influence on the governance of the empire is tolerated, our worlds are our own and if you don't like how they're run you can deal with it or we can smack your shit.

>who always jump to rash conclusions

At what point do they do this, besides when egged on by changeling infiltrators? Whenever Worf jumps to a "rash" conclusion in TNG, he's almost always right. Just think about how many shenanigans the Enterprise would have avoided if they just listened to Worf once in a while when he suggested going to Yellow Alert, or raising the shields?

Related to this, the Klingon intelligence network seems to be borderline prescient the few times we see it in action. As other anons have mentioned before, when Sisko asks Martok about intel on the Maquis cloaked missiles, he's able to just pull out a datapad and get that information in seconds. In TNG's 'Reunification,' a lowly BoP captain know's about Picard's secret mission to Romulus. The Klingons are the single most competent empire in Trek in almost every way, but they've managed to obscure this fact from everyone else using God-tier meme magic; no one pays them any mind because every Romulan, Cardassian, and Feddie citizen have it ingrained into their head that Klingons are just a bunch of lovable brutes with a penchant for honor.

While I do agree strongly that the Klingon model for foreign policy is ideal for any state, that's only one aspect of governance. Domestic policy, the institutions of government, the rights and duties of citizens, all that also needs to be considered. As we've seen in many episodes, the Klingon High Council is not an ideal governing body, as the political climate encouraged by their laws and traditions tends to lead to bloody feuds between houses, sometimes escalating into full-blown civil wars, with the Chancellor being basically powerless to address these issues before they become a problem. Both Star Trek and history show that aristocratic cliques having total control of the government is a shitshow a majority of the time.

DS9 was confused in it's last season

The whole "Emissary" Sisko thing petered out and was at odds with the Changling Dominion war plot line.

The Emissary arch ending looked tacked on as was put there in service of the Changling Dominion war plot line.

That's true, but even S1 could-be-TNG plots have a DS9 spin to them. For instance, take the Babel episode. If something like that happened in TNG, the bad guys would have been Cardassian, and that would have been that. But in DS9, the cast assumes it was the Cardassians, but they turn out to be wrong, and it was an extremist Bajoran sect who were responsible.

Are Vulcans and Ferengi reproductively compatible? Suppose a Vulcan long-range expedition picked up a Ferengi female stranded in a crash or something, and one of the crew went into Pon Farr. (Alternatively you could Tuvix 'em up).

What would a half-Vulcan half-Ferengi look like? Giant pointed ears? I'm surprised I found this picture, but somehow I imagine more going on than that. Would it be strong like Vulcans or weak like Ferengi? Split the difference? How would Vulcan telepathy integrate with their 4-lobed brains?

Both races are exceptionally smart; they'd be killer at math. What do you get when you cross the Rules of Acquisition with the Teachings of Surak? Vulcan discipline with Ferengi business savvy?

I feel like the only think keeping these half-breeds from dominating the galaxy is the combination of their cultural differences.

>First is the latinum part; since it's a commodity money, they can only devalue it by refusing to use it, but the impact of even a large portion of the Ferengi refusing to trade can't do too much to the value since so much of the galaxy uses it.

That's a fair point, and I'm not an economist, but couldn't you affect the value of a commodity currency by people refusing to use it in favour of other forms of exchange? Maybe there's a move to a more barter based system, or possibly even Ferengi Crypto Currencies tell me that wouldn't be beautiful to watch if it was well written and researched

>If anybody's pushing the reforms, it could only be the richest Ferengi

Now that is something I hadn't considered, makes all the sense though. Thanks for pointing it out. You could still get a small guy revolt among the Ferengi though, BigMcLargeCo (TM) still needs customers and employees after all - and while they have offworld, non-ferengi, clients those would start to evaporate once they started missing orders due to lack of labour at the factories back home (and even a Pakled would think twice before taking a job for a Ferengi boss when there's any other choice and the Ferengi is starting to hemorrhage money anyway).

Are you talking about them spanking you or for you spanking them?

Proud and faithful denizens of this board, Legate Nigger has abandoned us. I know it's hard to hear, and I'm certain it breaks your heart to hear it just as much as it does mine, but fear not. In the interest of maintaining order and discipline on this board, I petitioned our benefactors to allow me to administrate it. They, being excellent judges of character, saw no reason to deny me this request, and freely handed control of the board over to me.

Now, I'm sure you're wondering, "Is he going to shake things up?" and I answer you, " Not in the least." Embrace the change.You will find that for the most part, things will continue to go on just as they have. Legate Nigger had a rather hands off moderation style, and I intend to have one as well. One thing I do promise you, is that the report queue will be checked much more regularly, and reports will be dealt with appropriately. I also think we should partake in the Attention Hungry Games once again, so that the users of all the other boards can see the glory and might that makes /strek/ such an amazing board.

I will leave this thread open for you to express any concerns, ask any questions, or to just shitpost.

This I vow with my life's blood, for my son, for all our sons

The borg as written were too powerful, Voyager proved you have to mary sue your way just to deal with them.

Each borg was a tiny spaceship with shields and could regenerate any damage that got through the shields. The borg cubes themselves didn't even bother with shielding (although they had them) because a photon torpedo that can crack a planet open could barely scratch the paint on a borg cube.

They HAD to be nerfed.

No, they didn't you megafaggot. That was the whole point of the Borg, they were an existential threat that you could not deal with. They were a force of nature that could not be truly opposed, and your only recourse in 99% of cases was to go around them and hope they didn't glance in your direction. Not every villain needs to be defeated. Not every story needs to be a power fantasy that vindicates the protagonists with no consequences and no harm done. If the Borg are nerfed, they're functionally no different from every other big bad. Their whole schtick is that they cannot be truly defeated.

You could theoretically manage both approaches without too much hassle.

>Downplay the resilience of the individual Borg drone to the point where it can be credibly defeated without resorting to mary-sue-technobabble

>Rejig their overall threat level so that a well equipped/trained unit of anti-borg specialists, that has prepared out the ass, can reasonably take down a single minor Borg light-ship (I forget which shapes they used for those, but no more than a corvette analog)

>However the moment a single drone on that small ship registers you as a threat the nearest cube (and they're never *too* far away from a cube) will dispatch reinforcements and you are now working with a deadline of 2-3 minutes before you get captured and assimilated

That way you can still get episodes where the crew can fight and 'beat' the Borg but they retain their threat and can still play the role you described there.

So I recently finished rewatching Amok Time, and I recall hearing Spock explain to Kirk that the pon farr is part of an ancient tradition that comes even before the time of Surak. This got me wondering about the Romulans, whom we know left Vulcan during the Time of Awakening. Is it possible that the Romulans still wrestle with the pon farr, and that they might retain some of the same Vulcan traditions for dealing with it? What else do the Romulans and Vulcans continue to share in common with one another, in terms of culture and tradition, if anything at all?

Plotting. All Romulan romance is a constant dacne of subterfuge with the paramour, constantly trying to surprise her while failing to be surprised in turn. Valentine's Day and anniversaries are basically microcosms of the Cold War.

I could see the Romulans being really into humiliation raceplay. There's a lot of proud super-straight white guys who secretly yearn for a big black cock to tickle their prostate. By the same token, I see Romulan isolationism as a culture-wide repression of their desire to taste the forbidden fruit of foreign domination. I'd bet a lot of the Romulan leadership would happily spend an afternoon in a gloryhole, slurping down load after load of human sperm.

Pretty sure that there was a Red Dwarf episode on more or less every concept you'd see in a show.

I'm just finishing up my re-watch of DS9. Meaning of course I watched up to the penultimate episode of Season 6, then watched Siege of AR-558, It's Only a Paper Moon, and a couple filler episodes that I like. I think most of us here will agree that the plot-advancing episodes of Season 7, and the last part of Season 6, became very retarded very quickly. But, while what needs to go is pretty clear, what would you replace it with? Some starting points:

>S6: Waltz

Sisko and Dukat stranded together is an excellent concept for an episode, and the first part of it is set up well. Even the second part could mostly be kept as-is, if the end of the episode includes a bit of self-awareness. Rather than it being nothing more than the baste black guy heroically outsmarting the crazy hallucinating evil alt-right bigot, make it more clear that all Sisko really did is exploit and manipulate a mentally ill man for his own indulgence, going far beyond what was necessary for him to secure his own safety. Also, when Sisko discovers that the beacon is really offline, it would be far more in-character for Dukat to off-handedly apologize, briefly explain his reasoning, then continue on with the conversation, instead of chimping out.

>You really must forgive my duplicity in this matter, Captain. But, I think we should consider this a blessing in disguise. If you had known the transmitter was off-line, we wouldn't be having this enlightening conversation right now.

<Sisko visibly prepared to nog rage

>Have no fear, captain. As soon as we have concluded our little chat, I fully intend to re-activate your transmitter, and your friends can pick you up in good time.

After he's gotten what he's needed, or it's clear that Sisko isn't talking, Dukat will activate the transmitter while Sisko sleeps, then leaves in the shuttle.

>S6: Reckoning

Remove this episode and replace it with some filler episode from the cutting room floor. Kosst Amojan is stupid, the anime-tier battle of the energy beams was stupid, there's nothing redeemable to be found in the script. The Pah-wraiths shouldn't appear at all after The Assignment.

Dukat and 'classic' Cardassia are more akin to Fascism which is really more of an extreme small-c conservatism than national socialism and the ideologies based upon it.

There is no such thing as disloyalty in Cardassia, only degrees of failure to the State.
