He uses all of the lingo of those pukes.

I disagree with people all of the time. I don't want people who disagree with me banned. This is a very specific case.

Stuff like this:

Well said, it's undoubtedly one of those cases, every place on the internet where you let em do as they please becomes infected and starts to smell like 4chan, then after a while like 8chan if nothing's done.
Isn't there a dedicated BYOAC private forum for politics anyway ? I thought the public here was supposed to be free of bat-shiet politics.

I mean, I can assume you're about to don your most awesome antifa poncho and skull mask, and go throw a rock at the fascists and nazis

Thanks for proving our point.

Guys like Pixel, and yourself now, enjoy making idiotic provocations and trying to light fires, turning peaceful discussion places that have nothing to do with retarded extreme indentity politics into warzones.

F people who spread toxic politics on forums. Go away.

Again: I believe there is a dedicated forum for that, ask permission to go there, and stop polluting BYOAC.

*Ahem*

So I was watching some youtube vids of the vegas convention and from what the cast let slip I gleemed the following:

The plot has something to with internment camps and a holocaust-like scenario, which I guess was obvious from the trailer, but there you go.
7 of 9 and Hue will both be in multiple episodes.... as in more than three.
Hue will be de-assimilated, similar to 7 of 9. 
Riker will also be in multiple episodes, at least two.
Jeri Ryan is still hot. 
Johnathan Frakes is super bald now.
Not much mention of Data/Lore/whoever, so my guess is his inclusion in the show is minimal or too spoilery to mention.

Data stuff isn't surprising, the amount of effort and cost needed to make Brent Spiner look the part now is surely prohibitive.

In other news, was season 2 of the orville really that bad?

I thought season was was good.  Not great, but good.

It got serious and darkish real fast.
I liked first season because it was fun.
WAY to early in the series for a borg like attack on earth.

I don't know if that was mcfarlands fault or fox's.
hopefully it will be better on hulu.

How curious. I happened to see 'Brothers' last night on H&I. I forgot how dumb they were in leaving Lore out to be found and cause trouble later on....


@Howard: gleem is not a word. Gleam is, like 'gleam in his eye'. But you meant glean.

A little imagination would see Data wanting to emulate, at least for a time, aging.



@nitrogen_widget: try mint/cinnamon/chamomile oil on those areas to keep the pests away.

Can we all agree that Worf gone full Klingon Empire and facing off against Picard would be pretty cool to see?

Meh. Worf got beat up or outsmarted far more often than he kicked ass.

By Klingon standards, he is a genius then. They made just about every Klingon captain as dumb as a brick.

Anyway, I am not one to be in script writing anyway. I would be doing batshit stuff like making Whoopi Goldberg a mega powerful villian (for some reason Q was afraid of her) and have an entire division of starfleet made up of just holograms. If you can have an ultra powerful hologram Moriarty, and a hologram doctor, who needs humans to be screwing things up? I would also have to have "God" from Star Trek 5 flying around the galaxy cackling because he finally got a Starship.

Oh, and I would have to bring back Bob and Doug McKenzie. Those guys are great.

I always thought it was really bad writing when every other week the holodeck was responsible for almost destroying the ship, especially on Voyager.

If I was a Starfleet Captain the first thing I would do is have the holodecks physically removed from my ship.

The next thing I would do is tell my tactical officer to raise shields and fire at will in any combat situation. Starfleet protocol seems to be to sit nose to nose with an enemy vessel and let them pound your shields to about 50 percent before contemplating a counter attack.

All that being said, I still love Star Trek. I would rather see Kirk, Spock, and McCoy sing row, row, row your boat, Or the TNG cast playing poker a thousand times than watch 1 CGI space battle.
That is why I like Star Wars, but don't love it.

In Dr. Who, they let a trash can wave a toilet plunger at them for half an hour before they finally pull out the magic wand.

Yeah. I never watched much Dr. Who. When I was a kid my friend had a bunch of black and white episodes on VHS. I always wondered why the bad guys or the good guys didn't just shoot the Dr. or bludgeon him to death.

Even TNG had at least 4 instances where the Holodeck nearly destroyed the ship. Holodecks were a bigger threat than the Borg.

I watched through much of the modern Doctor Who with my wife, we kicked the show with the about 2/3rds the way through the angry Scottish doctor. The arc of later David Tennant to early Matt Smith were good. Most companions sucked, IMO. Amy Pond and River Song were the highlights.

I admit, there is something refreshing about a show that pretty much openly acknowledges that just about everything in standard sci-fi is a bunch of made up mcguffins and they can bend solutions to the current need at a whim, so why bother trying to build a canon - just make something fun and character driven. That said I felt the show got very old when the character elements were lacking, you were stuck with the same 2-3 people and no amount of writing can save you from that.

Doctor Who has a lot of issues... I didn't even bother to watch this last season because I knew the decision to make the Doctor female, just so the BBC could say they had a female Doctor, would blow up in their faces.  And, yup, that's what happened... the new show runner and the lady playing the Doctor are both leaving. 

As for the holodeck, the Enterprise D was one of the few ships to have one that sophisticated in it's day... I think that's where the trouble came from.  The only problem is the writers loved it so much they put it in all the shows.... Voyager makes sense because it's a state of the art ship, but DS9?  Nah....

Dr. Who may have been the shortest lived pinball machine in my collection.  My wife played 2 balls, said, "I hate it" and never touched it again.  I traded that thing even for a Jurassic Park and couldn't have been happier about it.

Looks like the rumors of Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker leaving Dr. Who may not be true.

From what I understand the ratings have been comparatively terrible.  That isn't necessarily their fault as they've been going down since the Matt Smith era, but I knew they'd get the blame regardless.

Yeah, if they cared about ratings it seems like they would have hired writers with a little more sci-fi experience on their resume.   ::)

@nitrogen_widget: the short story on Wesley is he wasn't an interesting character. Just tonight H&I played "Final Mission", where Wesley of about seventeen is as gooby as always, and can't keep from blurting inanities. It was likely his last regular episode, as he had gotten admitted to Star Fleet - a handy waving away of the character. (The story blew chunks, talk about writing, but that's another matter.....)

Hmmm. That was a pretty popular table at a place I went. I played it once or twice. Wasn't into the theme, but the table looked neat enough.

We have people with less verbal skills when it comes to something broken.
they don't even tell us what is broke sometimes.
just hysterically say "it's broken!, fix it" and assume we know what they mean.

I was kidding.
the best thing about whestly was his mom. ;)

But yeah, the brainy kid on the ship could only save the day so many times before it got boring.
Would of been cool to see him get his butt kicked a few times to balance the super smarty pants thing.

@nitrogen_widget: Wesley being a wonder boy and all that is fine. I would expect him to be more like Will Robinson. But Trek is written for the audience of the time.
