In Voyager season 1 episode 1 there's a fire in sickbay, why didn't the computer erect a forcefield to suffocate the fire like in that TNG episode with the Irish http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Up_The_Long_Ladder_(episode) ?

In VOY s1e1 everything was going to Hell in a handbasket and most systems were probably not working properly, so either the computer was down, or maybe there wasn't enough power to make a forcefield, or whatever else.

But the actual answer is: there's a hundred things they could have done with forcefields but never did except when the writers managed to think of it.

In Voyager there was a ship called Voyager captained by a woman with a bad supporting cast and awful writing, leading me to come to the astonishingly uncommon conclusion that the show was utterly amazing and anyone that dislikes it is an incel who's height (starts with 5', shameful) causes him to be intimidated by females in positions of authority.

It's because the hologram is just a projection of a computer program. They don't just need to make a solid body, they need to find a way to transfer the program into its brain to give it consciousness. His "mind" existed solely in the holodeck's computer and as far as I know they have no way of transferring that into a human brain. There was that cyberneticist that managed to transfer his own mind into Data, but that was only due to Data's positronic brain being so similar to a real brain. A computer is so different that it would be practically impossible to do a 1:1 transfer.

In the Moriarty episodes they didn't really mention his mind, it was all about making his body solid, but that is a reason why they wouldn't be able to make him into a real person.

He was a Maquis rebel, who resigned from star fleet. If he ever held an SF commission it would have been revoked when he left. He may have had an officers roll on the ship but he didn't hold an officers commission.

Granted, it was probably shoddy writing more than anything else, but we do tend to put much more thought into these episodes that the writers did

They often use crewman to refer to any member of the crew, not just those whose rank is crewman. I don't know if that's how it is in real navies, but they do it in star trek.

In real navies a crewman is a member of the crew, and the crew itself is the people tasked with ensuring the ship is ready to respond to commands. In America these are usually the enlisted.

The officers are an entirely separate group, with separate bunks, mess halls, meeting areas, whose job it is to decide what the ship should do and issue those commands.

On many ships, there is literally a line painted on deck that no crewman is allowed to cross, because that's officer territory.

The split and the custom is not out of any malice, it's completely practical and rooted in what works. Mixed crews have never worked, allowing officers to fraternize with crew always led to disaster, because officers would hesitate to make a choice that would put their "faves" into danger.

Separating crews offers the best decision making clarity, and also in case of prisoners of war being taken, the enemy is not going to bother interrogating crew which tends to protect them from any liability in whatever the warship does. They're also harder to put into a military prison.

From what I've seen of Trek, they have commissioned officers, non commissioned officers and enlisted. This is more similar to what America has.

Enlisted are basically crew, they're called that because they're literally just "put on a list" as a qualification. They get trained after their enlistment to be specialists or technicians in their fields, but they are always referred to as "enlisted".

The highest rank an enlisted can attain is that of a "non commissioned officer", NCO, or noncom. This rank has more administrative duties, more responsibility, but it is still lacks the responsibility or legal obligations of a commissioned officer. An NCO for example can't be forced to stand in a war crimes tribunal. The enlisted reaches the rank of NCO by slowly moving up through the enlisted rank structure, learning every job on the way. This generally means that an NCO of equivalent rank to a CO will be 40 years older.

A commissioned officer or CO goes to school and gets a comprehensive education in law, politics, international situation, history of war… on all duties and obligations he has, and immediately after school gets a set of responsibilities which he can be executed for ignoring. This means a twenty year old CO may have a 35 year old NCO as his immediate underling.

Also on Star Trek the "line" between the groups is drawn with uniforms, and if you're careful you can spot crewmen acting with deference to command decisions, calling officers "sir" and other such things.

People have pointed out that Klingon culture between TOS era and TNG era seems to have shifted from "appreciating warriors" to "fetishizing warrior culture". It's not unreasonable to think that Klingon culture (both military and civilian) went into an escalating "more hardcore than thou" competition over the centuries. Soft beds might not have been sneered upon during the earlier ENT era.

Yeah, definitely possibilities as well. This is what annoys me so much about most of trek fandom. It's full of people who've just accepted as canon that "X race acts like Y", when all we saw of X's races behaviour was a single guy one time.

Not to start a B5 vs Trek war, but one of the things I really liked about B5 was the variety of behaviour within the races. By having a relative handful of races all regularly interacting with each other in one setting, we got the impression that each race really is a complex society filled with individual conflict and politicking. (I'd argue that the closest we ever got to that on Star Trek was with Klingons late in DS9's run.)

We had meek-and-mild Centauri and blustering-and-aggressive Centauri. Friendly monk Minbari and "I will rip out your spine and feed it to you" Minbari. Scheming-and-skulking Drazi and noble selfless self-sacrificing Drazi. Humans aiming to save the galaxy, and Humans looking to fuck over all non-Humans for political gain. Narn assassins and Narn poets. Vorlons who'd happily blow up planets to remove an intellectual infection, and Vorlons who would risk all just to save a single person. It wasn't all just "nice humans trying to understand dickish bumpy-forehead alien-of-the-week" one time only before moving on to the next bumpy-headed alien-of-the-week.

In either "Charlie X" or "The Man Trap" you can see a extra wearing what they likely intended to be some sort of engineering gear, but it's quite obviously a beekeeper suit. Can't upload a screenshot since I don't have a PC with a blu-ray drive, my dvd-rips are on an old pc on storage, and I'm posting through TOR.

It's fun to see TOS's low budget become obvious in certain scenes. It turned out well most of the time, but there's always those times where they stick a horn on a dog or have environmental suits the look like they came from party city. The Naked Time, and The Enemy Within, just for reference

Hoshi was the only sensible character by being shit afraid of beaming. I mean, you basically die and are reborn on another location everytime. It basically negates the concept of a soul and states that a person is nothing else but a sack of meat with neuro-chemical reactions in it.

Even if transporters alarm you by implying the nonexistence of souls it doesn't make sense to refuse to use them. If the fact that they can successfully transfer (and occasionally duplicate) consciousnesses is proof against souls, then the fact that other humans, who would have souls if they existed, can transport successfully implies that as a fellow human you must also lack a soul.

You might be disturbed by the existence of transporters, but that's not the same thing as being scared to use them.

Souls and mind-body dualism are canon in Trek, see: Star Trek III, and pretty much any other episode where consciousness is transferred to another person. The stuff they pull with psychic powers in general kind of implies it too. There are arguably other examples as well (changelings evidently don't have a detectable brain – where is their mind? How did they separate Tuvix's thoughts and memories back out?). Don't worry, your soul stays with you when you transport. Apparently. The scientists of the Federation are way overdue for throwing in the towel and admitting that magic, demons, and ghosts are real.

I'm not even a dogmatic follower of the body-psyche dualism, I believe it to be a false dichotomy because the mind can't exist without the body. I don't think a soul is something "separate". I still however think that there is something inherently scary about being disassembled and reassembled every day a couple of times. I believe after 100 transports or so, you "loose" something that makes you the person that you are. Maybe you go crazy, maybe you become an emotionless automaton.

Combat in ST is ridiculuously gimped and unimaginative, leaving no room for personal ability and tactics. Outside of group maneuvers and repair efficiency, all ships fight in the same identical and dumb way: approach the enemy, fire the phasers.

Evasive maneuvers are basically handled by a software, just like targeting, so you don't have ace pilots. And capital ships in space are apparently slow as molasses to move around, despite full impulse being faster than any modern jet. The shield system contributes to the lack of excitement and fighting chance, as it precludes focused attacks that might be exploited with skill, and any hit taken when the shields are down is potentially fatal anyway.

It's also ridiculuous how fast the capital ship of the federation can run out of juice, either with depleted shields or disabled weapons. When they introduce the Defiant, that's the first and last time someone mentions how adding multiple weapon systems can help survive a prolonged battle. What's worse is that the Enterprise D is chock full of civilians, so it's like nobody really cared putting more than a single phaser array and torpedo tube between those thousands and death. In hindsight, it makes Trek ships look like pleasure cruises with a cannon strapped on top.

That's the broken premise, not an inevitability. I read plenty scifi where laser warfare was made exciting, and the first step is not rooting two ships in place in front of each other.

And it's no argument, that the Enterprise is unfit to protect its crew due to being more than military. Safety must be granted outside of military application.

A lot of it is down to really script writing and funny enough budgets increasing making combat worse. TOS and even TMP had a WW2 attitude how combat should play out and it was fine. TNG they wanted to fill the screen which made things really up close and while it looked pretty made zero sense.

To put it simply, ship combat in Star Trek used to be fought over 100km's+ where ships would be tiny specs on the viewscreen. Then all of a sudden newfags decided warships should turn into starfighters which made it ridiculous.

If transporters were real they would be so useful and revolutionary that even if they objectively did kill and replace you, people would find a way to rationalize their way around it or outright refuse to believe it. After a while, people born into a transporter-rich society would have been killed and replaced possibly hundreds or thousands of times before growing old enough to even muse about the philosophical implications of it.

If you may call it nitpicking, I recently started rewatching TNG from S5. After like 20 years since I watched the first run in my country.

And the political correctness is through the roof, with a constant barrage of stronk womyn fighting against prejudice, nagging about pronouns and gender roles, et cetera. It was in a Trek magazine that I learned what PC was, when it was mentioned how the intro blurb changed from Where No Man to Where No One, but back then I was not savvy enough to notice that the iconoclasm is onesided and preachy.

I can't watch this shit anymore. At most, would only call it slightly less worse than STD. But I will graciously take off the nostalgia glasses from now on, and tell it like it is to any poor Joe wanting in on ST. I will tell them that Trek is TOS and its movies, and everything else is nuTrek.

TNG 5x09, a guy claims to be from the future, and he came back to watch the Enterprise crew on what he makes painstakingly clear is some kind of historically significant mission. His behavior is moronic, like the way he constantly claims that people thought a book was in a different place, and everything he says is vague because time travel, but everyone goes with it anyways.

Shit like this is why Troi is kept around at all. How the fuck did she not pick out what should have been a constant feeling of panic and confusion and desperate lying? His whole scheme was to trick and stall long enough to loop back around to his "I can't tell you because of time travel rules!" even though no historian should logically do what he does. While I'm all for having less Troi wherever possible, this was such a dumb episode built entirely on a flimsy concept, and the only way to make it work required Troi to be somewhat more retarded than usual and everyone else to be way too trusting for a period of time while an obvious thief ran around pulling a con that would never work.

In "The Next Phase," the S5 episode where Ro and LaForge are phase-cloaked which is some pretty cool foreshadowing for the S7 Pegasus episode, they're described as having been phased out of normal matter, unable to interact with it.

I think it was the episode where Picard "proved" not lol Data's sentience in court, Data claimed to have read every treatise available on playing poker, and yet didn't understand the concept of bluffing until he experienced it playing Riker et al.

So we're meant to believe he read MULTIPLE books on how to play poker, and none of them mentioned bluffing once? Other than weighing the odds of what you're going to get on the flop and the river (which Data should be able to do instantly without effort) there's almost nothing to learn about poker EXCEPT how to be bluff well. What a load.

Related to this, there was also "Conundrum," in which Deanna beat Data at chess because she had a "creative playing style" or whatever the fuck. Not only is it retarded to have the most airheaded character be a good chessplayer, it's nonsensical when you understand how chess works even on the most plebeian of levels; it's absolutely a game where sheer speed of computation gives one an absolute advantage. You can't even blame this on poor knowledge of the future, not really–Deep Blue beat the reigning Grand Master only five years after this episode aired.

I always assumed that he had read about it but it's the sort of thing one cant understand until one experiences it.

>>32487

This one gets me too, but most people don't consider chess to be that way. It's just a popular misconception.

Maybe it's just selection bias from the sort of people I hung out with; even the artsy fartsy types were able to understand that whoever could think the most moves ahead in chess tends to win.

That's why you should disregard anything related to Data's knowledge or skills from the first few seasons because they didn't know what they were doing. They couldn't figure out how to portray an all-knowing but inexperienced adult, so they just made him an autistic savant who didn't know certain things "just because". Like him failing to extract himself from a Chinese Finger-trap. Any child can understand how to do it by observation, and seeing how he surely knows literally ALL OF PHYSICS Data would, too. What happened was more like he was too obstinate to try a different strategy rather than just pulling on it (but not to hard to break it, apparently), which is clearly autistic-like behavior.

Mildly related: neither Patrick Stewart nor Ian Mckellan know how to play chess, and couldn't be assed to learn, so every scene in the X-Men movies where they are playing, they just move random pieces around. It's not a stretch to assume literally nobody on the TNG writing staff knew how to play chess, either.

>>32495

For some reason, a lot of people think that chess is a bluffing game like poker. Too much to do about good players manipulating their opponent, and then they don't know what that means so assume it's some kind of mind-games, rather than just interrupting their flow and limiting their movement options while increasing your own.

How does this work, exactly? How has nobody upset their order before, either through invasion, or through traders just idly thinking somebody with RBF looks punchable? You'd think if they had outside contact, they'd have a way of dealing with this before Voyager showed up.

I'll give a shit about Star Trek again when the Abrams movies, Discovery and Picard are removed from canon and forgotten about. There was no excuse for the time travel, Romulus being destroyed, the "what timeline is it?" mess of Discovery, none of it. Kick it all out.

Abrams has been kinder to Star Wars than Trek, and Orci & Kurtzman need to lose their Hollywood jobs(not that I'd object to an automobile accident removing them completely)

Voyager & Enterprise > Abrams canon.

If I tried to nitpick all of Nemesis this whole thread could go to 751 posts and I wouldn't even be done. So let's focus on B4. This short bus android doesn't make a lick of sense. Data's MILF told us every android before Lore an heroed from unstable positronic nets. Even if she lied for some reason, how did Shinzon get a hold of him? If the Tal Shiar somehow retrieved him from Omicron Theta, why didn't they take Data or Lore? Why did Shinzon choose to bury his parts on a desert planet in bumfuck nowhere? How was he so sure the Enterprise would pass by Planet Bumfuck? How does a deactivated positronic brain set off the Enterprise's long-range sensors, when not even an active android brain is detected by them normally? If the brain was modified by Shinzon to have a stronger output, why wasn't that stronger output detected? Why are discount Tusken Raiders guarding a random android in the desert? Since when are positrons, a relatively common form of antimatter which should be found in every warp core, only produced by android brains? Why doesn't anyone react with just a little bit of suspicion to a Soong-type android being buried on this planet? There plotholes everywhere in Nemesis but there are just so damn many in this particular area.

You can't "bluff" in chess, it's not poker, that's the whole point I was making. There's a a reason computers have been consistently been able to beat the world's best players for the past 25 years. There's a no bluffing or character reading involved.

You literally can. Logical or not, there are only so many possible legal moves you can make from a given board configuration. Since you can control what that range of motion is through your own pieces, regardless of how "logical" or "illogical" your opponent is, a good player will funnel the range of possible moves down until the only moves your opponent can make are the ones that lead to victory, regardless of how "illogical" their style is. In that scene, notice how Data was immediately able to say "checkmate in 8 moves" after Troi's move?

>>33094

And so is the ENT "These are the voyages…" episode. What exactly is your point? He's still a pile of nonsensical inconsistencies, and Nemesis is still a garbage movie, regardless of canonical status.

There are only so many moves that can be made at any given time. Someone like Data would have no problem seeing all possible moves for several moves. This is how Deep Blue worked. It 'just' calulated every move and the ideal countermove for as many turns as it could. Chess is a solvable game, like tic-tac-toe. There is a finite number of chess games, just like there is a finite number of tic-tac-toe. The difference is there are a handful of possible tic-tac-toe games. The most well known conservative lower bound for chess is called the Shannon number. It's 10^120. There are at least 10^120 possible chess games, and the actual number is probably considerably higher. This includes stupid, but technically legal moves. If you only go by "sensible" moves, the lower bound is about 10^40 moves. To put these two numbers into reference there are about 10^80 atoms in the universe.

It is hoped that one day we will have the computing power to brute force chess and discover the perfect chess strategy. It seems even Data does not have enough computing power to do this.
