I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

So last night's episode was pretty neat. Seeing Spock in his right mind was great and seeing Pike and Vina together was great. Not that crazy on where they are going with the regenerated doctor, lol, but maybe it will turn out to be interesting.

I really hope that Pike and Tyler are trying to double-bluff whomever is messing things up, presumably Airiam. Otherwise it just makes everyone look dumb.

 

I agree on the Spock/Michael thing, and it does resonate awkwardly with Kirk in Little Girls using the same term. And I agree about the stakes, we already had a 'fate of the multiverse' last season (even if, by Star Trek parallel reality rules, doesn't make sense; if every choice makes a separate universe, then there will always be at least one universe where the Spore Network destroyed the multiverse...), something lower-key would have been nice. It's part of why I like Kirk's death so much, he doesn't die so that the universe, or the Federation, or even Earth is saved; he does it because some planet nobody has heard of with a smaller population than the US is in danger.

Just read that Pike is a 1-season thing only.  Too bad, because he's quickly become the best part of this show.

That was at least rumored to be the case from the beginning, and he has indicated throughout the season that he intends to go back to the Enterprise once she's up and running again.  We're getting kinda late in the season to have barely seen Number One and not glimpsed the bridge of the Enterprise.  Saving them for a final story arc, perhaps.

 

I wouldn't be surprised to see Pike and the Enterprise show up now and then as recurring characters after the current season.

 

At the end of season 1, Discovery was headed to Vulcan to pick up the new captain when the Enterprise swooped in and Pike assumed command.I'm still not sure if Pike was the captain they were supposed to meet or if there's another captain sitting around on Vulcan wondering what's taking so long.

 

I wouldn't mind seeing Saru take command, although it feels like he needs some more time to adjust to his new biological state (Saruberty).  Seeing him deal with it as captain could be interesting.

 

I expect Burnham to get there eventually, but that seems like something that won't happen until the final season.  Maybe the season finale.  But they could always take a swerve.

All I could think about Nhan is that's a fairly risky decision to have one of her species as your security chief when ripping off just one side of her apparatus renders her virtually useless (at least until the Machina needs her back). Any physical encounter would end like the underwater SCUBA fight from Thunderball.

Well, I started the episode off thinking, "Oh shit, these lame showrunners will be eviscerated forevermore by everyone including me for doing the laziest simplest solution ever for this mystery storyline."

 

Color me now impressed.

 

And I love Ethan Peck delivering savage Spock lines.

 

Perhaps you simply have a penchant for the dramatic.

The plan to trap the Red Angel was the epitome of stupidity. If the Red Angel is Michael from the future, wouldn't she know what was happening (did happen) and figure out a way to save herself without falling into the trap?


Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

Maybe not because theyre changing her history due to her future actions? I think Spock realized the paradox, and thats why he made sure that she actually died. If they had saved her, the Red Angel wouldnt have needed to appear. Temporal mechanics give me a headache.

On the subject of time travel. I know Star Trek relies too heavily on technobabble sometimes, but time crystal goes too far in the other direction. I would like to hear some vaguely scientificy explanation of what a time crystal is.

This show can do some really great character stuff when it slows down enough to do so.  There were some wonderful moments this week.

I'm sure I had more thoughts as I was watching it, but I'm going blank right now.  Anyway, it was a good episode that moved at a moderate pace and answered a lot of questions.
