I liked RLM's alternate setting of Picard where's it's just old man Picard puttering around his winery, getting into lighthearted, minor SF adventures. Sort of like Golden Girls in the future. Very cozy.

But those last few minutes of the review. Woof, what a gut punch.

It's a shame that he didn't talk about the ending, how the Federation lifted the synth ban even after what they did earlier in the same episode.

Mike should have finished the Re-view series of Picard first.

When we see Klingons, it's always the warriors, who are usually all GRRRRR WAR AND HONOR AND STABBY SHIT FUCK YEAH, which is cool, I like that, but they can't be all there is to klingon society, right? Like, there's got to be klingon scientists, as I have a hard time believing their cloaking device just sort of happened, to say nothing of the rest of they tech; Faster than light travel, transporters, energy weapons, that shit didn't come from a crazed fuck with a bat'leth.

I always assumed they were sort of like the clanners in Battletech, having different castes that did different things, though hopefully not nearly as ass-holey as the clans are about it, fucking testtube babies. Or what about life in general for the "average" klingon? Is there non-military life on klingon worlds, or is it all warrior-culture? I fancy the idea of klingon bikers, imagine their equivalent of the Hell's Angels, lol.

Is there any canon info on Klingon life, outside of a battle cruiser?

There was a Klingon-themed novel I read once that featured Klingon farmers. They were celebrating a harvest festival called Yobta' yupma', and drove around in what amounted to an APC without suspension. They considered themselves under-appreciated.

I think you're confusing Cardassians and Kardashians. One is a hierarchical, ruthless race of vaguely reptillian humanoids bent on conquering and exploiting as many worlds as possible. The other is from Star Trek.

>All smrt people need to inherrently be effeminate weaklings like the moderns who are part of the cult of scientism, a scientist could never value honour or valour

Why is it that liberals who have the greatest conceit of being able to "analyze" society are also the ones with a total inability to recognize the contingency of their own culture? To them progressive ideology is a law of the universe, not even literal aliens from outer space could have a social dynamic that differs from their preconceptions.

If we ever made contact with alien races these types of people would immediately be trying to foment a colour revolution on their homeworld while simultaneously starting an inter-species breeding program.

A little something I have been meaning to take a note of for the longest time and that is the role of democracy in Trek. In particular how various races elect their leaders or people into leadership positions.

It is implied heavily that the Romulans have Senators that are elected but how or who they are elected by remains unclear.

The Cardassians could have something similar with their Detapa council but nothing is quite established.

The Klingons while ran by a High Council do have some semblance of an electoral process if only if it is a contest to show who is most fit to lead the Council.

About the only faction we see that does not has a clear established Democratic process is the Federation.

>But anon, le President and the council!

Yeah but it appears to be made up of heredity members that are clearly unelected. There also seems to be no reference to elections in the Federation at all with Presidents seemingly chosen at random. You'd think that such an important matter would be a plot point of a single episode but nothing is ever said on the subject matter.

So if I were to make a summary of my observations; Democracy does not exist in the Star Trek universe. Advancement only by sheer merit or heredity status exists.

I somehow have the impression that the federation is a dictatorship dressed up as democracy. 2 party system without the chance of other parties gaining traction.

Also, while we are at it, peacefully uniting lots of planets and cultures and integrating them into your federation is still imperialism in my book.

There's also that whole thing about " they've moved beyond petty things like greed racism and hate". Not in a "we have learned to better suppress and control these feelings now" but outright "we just don't have them at all anymore" even though those traits are so inate to the human condition that you'd need crazy soul destroying 1984 levels of social engineering to program out of people like that.

It is a interesting line of thought if the augments pretty much started with full bore genetic Supermen like Kahn or if there was slow ramp up in how much mucking with genes they were doing. It's entirely possible Earth society went through a Gattica like stage prior to the eugenics wars and the early low level genetically engineered people (that were subject to all sorts of new modifications intended to make them better members of society) bred with the general populations for a few generations before the shit hit the fan, so the entire current ST human population could have at least a little altered genetic code in them.

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.

TOS S1 - 4

TOS S3 - 4

Hi! I used to post on the old infinitychan /strek/ board before the site shut down and didn't know it came back! It was swell to post on the only non-leftist Star Trek community probably ever.

Anyway, hopefully you won't mind my self-promotion, but I've been making review/analysis vids of each episode of Star Trek: Picard, replete with the nerdy perspective of someone who grew up with Trek and occasional jokes along the way. I just uploaded the one for episode 4 yesterday. I was hoping you guys might enjoy it or let me know what you think. I'm still pretty new at this!

because ultimately STD felt like a separate (ignorable) thing from the rest of the franchise. Meanwhile Picard is quasi direct sequel to TNG that shits on every about it and the star trek franchise as a whole that you can't just pretend doesn't exist.

On top of this, there's the nostalgia factor. STD is almost all new characters and even the ones that are from TOS are played by different actors, so it's easier to treat it as a separate thing. Picard on the other hand, has more returning characters played by the same actors, so when it fucks up, it hurts more because they're fucking up with the same actors who made the characters who they were.

If you could live on a planet in the Star Trek universe which one would you pick. I think I'd pick Betazed. I'd stare the beautiful betazoid females right in the eyes and think of the unspeakable things that I'd do to them during sex. Pretty sure I'd hook up quickly. If a guy read my mind I'd think "Lol, u gay?"

Also hanging around Betazed insane asylums would be entertaining. I'd rile these folks up with my weird thoughts and make them riot.

What makes you think that staring at people and thinking about fucking them wouldn't be seen as rude on Betazed, making you a pariah? What makes you think that Betazoids would find you anymore attractive than humans already do?

It would be easy to vamp most of those (and the STO timeline Klingon's are fixed, have someone take the chancellorship by force who has brass balls and the will to use them). Honestly the dominion is just as big a threat as ever (they managed to force the changelings to diversify their planetary holdings). And it would be easy to turn the borg scary again

>captain whoever is intrigued when a borg queen (make this one a dude, borg King) invites star fleet onto a cube. The ship sits three days to reveal that it's an almost empty cube with it's weapons, and nanites intentionally burned out .

>The captain finally goes over as requested. They find the king and his single manservant) sitting at a table (borg table think techblack) and he waves

>The king is gregarious and welcomes everyone making nonchalant small talk and so on until the captain finally frustrated asks

Making the Borg scary again so soon after VOY is basically like saying they should just have had the Empire not be defeated after RotJ. It undermines the achievements of the previous generation of heroes. It could definitely have been done with some competent writing though. I always expected all of these civilisations to rebuild, it just needed to be shown.

>borg queen

Ditch the queen concept entirely. It was a bad idea that came about because the writers were too lazy to write a baddie that didn't have a "face" and it ruined the whole fucking point. Say it was a failed experiment in creating a "user interface" for a civilization the borg once encounter that was too strong to be taken by force but was found to be possibly open to voluntary assimilation with a little coaxing. So Borg searched through the minds currently plugged in, found one with a strong diplomatic ability, then upgraded it and allowed a measure of autonomy while still directly connected to the collective in order to properly interact with the species on the Collective's behalf, but this went horribly wrong as once given some level of independence, the personalty was actually able to dominate the rest of the collective through force of will and set itself up as the queen instead of just a spokesperson. You could even establish that was why Huge and his "corrupted" borg were rejected. The queen recognized him as a threat that might do exactly what she did ages ago, so she ditched the whole infection before it could spread further.

And anyway to reintroduce the borg and make it clear that weakness has now been purged in part thanks to the federation's meddling and the collective is now a unified being again and the collective has taken more extreme measures to prevent drones from developing individuality or overriding the collective.

Why did they have to make Picard a limp wristed passive shell. If the Federation was the machine of injustice it is portrayed to be, then the Picard of TNG would be the first to challenge this.

>It's a STAR empire. Losing their homeworld would have no impact on the Rumulan society since they would have centuries to prepare and find a new home in another system.

It may not affect the people on the fringes of the Star Empire but it would affect the people closer, depending on how centralised the government was.

Not to mention the psychological aspect of losing one's homeworld.

I see them having a fleet based capital similar to the Rock of the Dark Angels with a capital ship being formed around a large, hollowed out vestige of their home planet.

I second this. I would like the Borg to be like the creatures in the film Virus (1999) where the flesh is seen purely as another machine component and the real enemy is sentient software.

We can tell by how the Romulans operate that is a very centralized empire.

It shouldn't be so centralized, but it is, and that's not just a Romulan oversight, it's something that comes up in Star Trek as well as other science fiction a lot. Then again I can understand why the planet on which your people originated would play a central role. As far as TV goes, Andromeda is the only series off the top of my head that featured primarily humans, but cast Earth as a backwater world. The Expanse also does this in later novels, but Earth hasn't been ruined on the show, yet.

I never got the chance to really watch DS9 i remember like 5 episodes I watched these where:

<The one with the gambling aliens who teleport the officers into a game

<The planet of the warriors who fight and never die

<Lots of Ferengi episodes

<The holodeck episode where Sisko as a fictional James Bond like character gambles to prevent his death (the safeties where of) and talked to this James Bond like villain that he is on his sides and preses the button on his dooms day weapon to destroy the (fictional holodect) world. This pauses the villain and the rest of the crew has time to rescue Sisko

<The trip to Risa episode

<Some dominion episodes

So I decided to watch it from start to finish.

I was thinking S1 will be boring like watching paint dry.

There are some crazy episodes in S1 however its a handful of good episodes between mediocre ones.

I'm in S2 and the mix is some hood between loads of pointless and even boring ones.

Why are there so many episodes that are simply boring or uneventful.

02x10 Sanctuary

looks ok and is entertaining to watch however what even was the point of this episode?

Some aliens show up, they can not be understood by the universal translator (this could be a great idea for a episode however the translator translates them on its own = waisted opportunity).

The aliens are different.

These aliens are nasty.

They delude themselves based on some stupid old prophesy that Bajor is their homeland or place to go or something.

They want to go to Bajor.

Bajorans say NO.

one kid steals a shuttle or something for a unknown reason the shuttle has some defects and he explodes himself over Bajor on accidence.

The episode ends.

Rom was tolerable around the middle of the show, when he was the talented but autistic engineer that acted as Quark's hapless accomplice. It was only later that he turned into the writer's mouthpiece for the leftist agenda.

Well how would you fix this? I guess the most ferengi way is that there is always a tension between legal activity and illegal activity. So occassionally you get faggot nagus's and everyone basically goes yeah that's great and nothing changes outside of what's in the capital city until the blackmarkets align behind someone dealing in sizable chunks of money who basically makes them the 'darknegus'. Then things conspire (or maybe the darknegus just buys the position?. I kind of like the idea that yeah occasionally ferenginar goes thru periods of 'otherworld mania' until the greed takes over again.

I wouldn't. They needed Rom to keep Quark as a pure likable character.

It should say "the Sun," not "the Earth." Dyson spheres are built around stars to capture 100% of their output, not around planets.

Yeah I just realized that a sphere around the Earth would achieve the opposite effect, you're gonna want to work these details out before building.
