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. In fact, letPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

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.

You know one thing I never understood is why they never had giant robots in either Star trek or star wars. You'd think that massive hulk's of destruction would make an interesting plot point, but sadly I've never seen them. Would you like some Mecha in star trek? Or have I just been watching too much Gundam..

That is not entirely true, depending on 2 issues.

Are you comparing them to tanks? Why would you assume they would be used in the exact same role as a modern tank? Helicopters aren't tanks, but Apache's are good at killing tanks, hard to kill with just a tank, but tanks are still around regardless, since helicopters didn't replace tanks. Moving around on limbs would allow a mech to go where tanks can't and move in ways tanks can't. Arm mounted weapons can be pointed at a target much faster than a tanks turret and would make it easier to change the mechs weapon load out to fit the circumstances.

The second big issue is size. Just how big a mech are we talking here? 3 meter tall glorified powerarmor or Mechagodzilla? I mean one is all but guaranteed technology at this point while the other is a textbook example of why giant robots aren't practical.

Also, there is one big advantage mechs, especially humanoid ones, have that tanks do not. Their pilots.

They can operate highly intuitively by a single operator with only limited training, since they move mostly like the human pilot has already learned to move, simply by growing up.

The single pilot operating it also cuts down on reaction time compared to a crew operated tank, where the crew need time for the commander to see what needs to be done, then relay that order to someone else so they can do it, then they need time to understand the order and then decide how to carry it out all before they actually do so. A single human pilot could cut most of those steps out of the equation.

So the real question when determining how practical a giant robot is, should be, is there a role that it can do better than other vehicles currently in use. If you can find such a role, then yes, they are.

You have an excellent point. In many ways, a lot of Star Trek technology has a magical or fantastical aspect, where people use it but don't actually know how it works. It would be pretty interesting if it was revealed that Starfleet was either given (or stole) transporter and advanced Warp technology from the Vulcans, and while they read the instruction manuals, never bothered to actually learn how it works on a fundamental level.

I mean, really, the reason there is no explanation given for why these things happen is because we're dealing with technology that breaks the laws of physics and so CAN'T have an explanation. It's not like an airplane which obeys basic laws like material fatigue and lift/drag. At least, in-universe, this is the best I can offer. The difference is, we had to understand the physics behind airplanes in order to build one, but for one reason or another Starfleet didn't need to understand their version of physics in order to build a transporter or Warp drive. Maybe Cochrane just stumbled on it by randomly mixing elements and antimatter in a lab one day trying to make some REALLY strong hooch? Even Marie Curie studied radiation extensively — without realizing that it was killing her.

>>32027

The real question you should be asking is: why does anyone need ANY sort of armored weapon platform when modern warfare is primarily conducted from thousands of miles away with guided missiles and drones? Even IF there wasn't a million reasons why a humanoid robot for military purposes is dumb as rocks (hence why nobody is seriously pursuing it), there is no reason for the pilot to be in it. Just remote control the thing from somewhere else (in some kind of VR rig) so nobody dies if the thing gets blown up.

They should make the actual, original Mary Sue a canon character on the show. What better way to appropriate a derogatory, often misogynist term, and spit it back into the hater's faces? She could be the main character from here on out. Descend into all-out self-parody and let the show become something that can entertain everyone.

I guess what I'm really saying is: leave the show almost exactly the same, but with a hot white girl protagonist, because I hate Michael's monkey face and bootlip slurring.

Why not just order the computer to make a holographic slave that has full consciousness and awareness, and can freely want whatever they want, but lacks free will to fully disobey?

Then they're not broken used goods like the Orions will sell you, that just meekly do as they're told. They can still be broken to your will if you want, or you can leave them loathing you for enslaving them. But without the hassle of stopping them from killing you or escaping.

We already know the holodeck can magically grant sapience.

Gay men being girly is a bad stereotype based mostly on confirmation bias. Twinks are rarer than butch gays, but you just don't see the latter when they walk past you in the street because they seem normal. The "metrosexual" look has been in vogue since the late 90's and is only getting stronger as men have to appeal more and more to the modern woman who wants to be both dominant and feminine and therefore wants her man to be a parallel yet submissive.

Okay it seems like the easiest way to do this would be to rank all the seasons on a fixed scale, this allows us to average out the results and do math to them which helps.

Unless someone has a better idea, lets say a 1-5 scale where 1 is terrible and 5 is excellent (better then even the original series).

As the calibration point TOS is more or less fixed at 4 although I admit i have never watched it as seasons as apposed to individual episodes. Early voyager is the other end of the scale.

I mean, the bio dampener of the Hansons which was also used by the Yoyager crew isn't a cloak, right? But, uhm, the Borg have bloody eyes?! In fact, they even have supposedly better eyesight through the cybernetic implants. Borg drones can hear as well (and the scanner of Janeway makes noise), or smell. In the finale of the episode, Janeway enters the "throne room" of the Borg Queen who immediately notices her, because, of course, she has eyes. I really wonder why they decided not to make the bio dampener a cloak, they made the same logical mistake with the Delta Flyer's "shield modulation" which supposedly hides them from their sensors, but isn't a cloak, but on the Borg Queen's viewscreen the shuttlecraft just vanishes, as if it was cloaked. Technological wise it also isn't such an ingenious technology, considering even contemporary military works on technology to shield soldiers from heat detection.

One possible solution would be the fact that the eyesight of a drone would function completely via their neural implants, like an artifical eye, with the biological eye being replaced, and that the optical implants can't process biological life as such if their life signs are dampened. If this would be true, this seems like a horrible flaw of the Borg (and there are quite a bit already). And even then, you'd assume that they can input a command to put the optical implant on stand-by and order the drones to use their "normal" eyesight again. I mean, in the episode where Seven of Nine got stranded with a few other drones on a planet, they start cooking food and other stuff as an emergency back-up routine that is activated when isolated.

Don't misunderstand me, it is still a good episode, because the looming dread in this two-parter, that is really well done, and it probably has the most horror movie like scene in all of Star Trek (Seven witnessing assimlation of a species as they scream and cry in pain in the background and she watches them being mutilated), which makes it one of the best Yoyager episodes, but this really puts me off it. I assume this is another case of inventing an "off-trigger" of a villain that the writers created to be too overpowered, but I always think of Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>They would probably try an eugenics program to combine the best traits of all the species. I assume the reason they didn't is because they considered it a waste of resources, rewards being too low, etc.

Actually, I'd bet on the Borg preferring to keep their genetics diverse to prevent instakill biological warfare against them.

Was it wrong to refuse giving her the warmth and companionship she needed?
