What you're describing is more an "homage" than plagiarism, really. I'm assuming you would be using different characters. It's basically like all the comic covers that homage the death of Supergirl cover from Crisis on Infinite Earths...but with different characters. It's not plagiarism, it's a reference. But if several artists have a memorable layout and are all using it, chances are it actually is referencing something memorably original.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Would that still qualify as plagiarism? After all, it could be argued that what I've recreated isn't that original to begin with since several other people have supposedly had the same general idependently from each other.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:54 PM)

And I were then to create a new image, not traced but maybe "swiped", except I wouldn't copy a specific source image, but merely recreate the basic pose and perspective shared between all of them...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:52 PM)

*deleted*

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:49 PM)

And out of sheer coincidence, they all feature very similar ideas, concepts, poses and/or perspectives, supposedly with none of the original creators having copied from one of the others...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:47 PM)

Assuming I were to find not one but two, three, four or even more source images, all of them by different artists, or by different photographers depicting different models...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:45 PM)

Just out of curiosity, a question regarding the concept of plagiarism:

I reject your canon and substitute my own

Answer: It doesn't matter because even if there was one, it was never relevant in S1 and it got blown up with his original body

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 June 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Most people think Transformers canon is a series of discrete parallel lines, really it's more like a big ball of canony-wanony... stuff.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 June 2019 - 06:31 PM)

Hate to say this, but the simple answer is that you are thinking too hard and realistically, it does not matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2019 - 04:57 PM)

Don't tell me what to do.

@  Paladin : (24 June 2019 - 04:16 PM)

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 03:03 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

@  Telly : (23 June 2019 - 07:06 PM)

that would probly fit better in the p & r thread. its there for things just like this

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Meanwhile, congratulations civil resistance, part 2: So a group of Nazis were holding one of their Good Old Times Reenactment festivals in a small East German town.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:26 PM)

It's basically like an anti-Trump candidate winning Texas.

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

@  MEDdMI : (22 June 2019 - 04:45 PM)

Is he a Shellformer

@  Nevermore : (22 June 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Supposedly it's about that football player Calvin Johnson.

@  Pennpenn : (22 June 2019 - 07:03 AM)

I'm vaguely confused why there is a Nicki Minaj song in my youtube reccomendations, but even more confused as to why that song (which appears to be from an official account) is called "MEGATRON".

Anyone heard about this? Looks like an obvious pastiche of Star Trek (and probably other sci fi classics as we go further in) with Seth MacFarlane as the captain of exploratory starship USS Orville. Not sure how I feel about having him as the main character and producer, as his humor is very hit or miss... But maybe Jon Favreau can help polish some of the weirder stuff.

 

Trailer:

Yeah, it was all over my facebook feed this morning. Frankly... I don't know what to think. Macfarlanes track record is pretty good for like the first season, then the writing just keeps slipping further and further... Nice graphics though.

Looks like a crappy "Galaxy Quest" ripoff.

Honestly the trailer is funnier than I was expecting from McFarlane (which isn't hard).

It looks like Galaxy Quest yes, but since it's doubtful we'll get any more real Galaxy Quest this seems like it might be a pretty acceptable substitute.

-ZacWilliam, honestly it looks a lot more fun than most Star Trek has been in quite a while.

I'm annoyed that this thing probably has more staying power than the new Star Trek series.  CBS can't get their shit together but "Galaxy Quest" TV is already off the ground?  The universe isn't fair.

Loved A Million Ways To Die In The West and multiple seasons of other MacFarlane works so I'm game.

 

That said, the trailer was weak. Other than centering the baddie in the view-screen I thought most of the jokes and gags were meh.

 

(PS: Will be disappointed if they don't work a Roger from American Dad cameo into this...)

There are several Star Trek vets working on it.  McFarlane's work is spotty, but I'm intrigued.  I'll watch a few episodes and see how it goes.

But McFarlane is involved, so it'll probably get over 10 seasons even if the ratings are the lowest in the network's history.

brian george, who played julian bashirs dad on ds9 (and some voyager ep thats forgettable...), is the scientist with the banana ray thingie in he first ep. so thats one more!

the best thing would be that if the hour is broken into 2 half hour episodes. i just dont see an hour working

Loooooong time since I could bear to sit through an episode of Family Guy or American Dad, but in the flesh I've always found MacFarlane kind of likeable, so I'm intrigued. 

 

Obviously it will be terrible and/or instantly cancelled, but it might be an interesting ride briefly.

I'm interested in it. I feel like his humor is usually better when it's constrained a bit as it forces he and his writers to be a bit cleverer. It will still try too hard, but on the whole it has promise.

 

But yeah, mid-season cancellation for sure.

I think it could be good if only because he's long been an open Trek fanboy so knows what to parody, as the framing joke highlights.

It will depend on the writing. Family Guy is a ghost of itself, never watched Cleveland Show and last I watched American Dad was still his best. Give him the right team and he does well. A bad team and he phones it in.

I liked what I saw on it. I got some good laughs and even though it has that comedy scope, they could potentially tackle some more serious sci-fi too.

 

But as Devcon pointed out it probably won't last long. Between Fox not getting stuff and the ridiculous budget it's going to take to produce this thing is probably already shit-canned.
