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)

don't cross the streams.

@  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

@  MEDdMI : (23 June 2019 - 10:17 PM)

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.

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.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:21 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".

Earlier this week, news broke that Pulp Fiction filmmaker Quentin Tarantino would be joining the Star Trek franchise via an idea he pitched to J.J. Abrams. The news sounded almost too strange to be true, and that perhaps any moment we’d learn a mistake had been made. But now even more details about Tarantino’s Star Trek have arrived, including the revelation that the film will be R-Rated, per Tarantino’s stipulations. In addition to this news, The Revenant writer Mark L. Smith has emerged as the frontrunner to pen the script.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Tarantino has pitched an idea for an R-rated Star Trek movie, with an eye to direct. Now, one of the series’ most iconic captains is weighing in on the possibility — and whether Jean-Luc Picard may make an appearance.

 

“People are always saying to me, ‘Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?’ And I cannot think that would be possible, but there are ways in which something like that might come about,” Stewart told The Hollywood Reporter at the Dubai International Film Festival. “But one of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction. So, if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr. Tarantino, I would embrace it.”

 

Hell yes!

 

Can't wait for Samuel L. Jackson to have been in both Star Wars and Trek.

 

"Does Captain Picard look like a b*tch? Then why you tryin' to hug him like a b*tch?"

Yeah, I've been a Tarantino fan for a couple of decades now, and a Star Trek (well, TOS and TNG) fan for longer, so this seems pretty great to me. Injecting a real auteur filmmaker into what is now a by-the-numbers franchise is an exciting experiment. I love the idea that Tarantino has to work within the constraints of an existing sandbox, and I love the idea that a Star Trek movie will be created by someone with a completely unique and seemingly incongruent creative vision. Whatever else this turns out to be, it's going to be fascinating.

 

Also, Patrick Stewart would love to work with Tarantino and would return as Picard to do it, so um yes please.

For real. I may not like every Tarantino film, but I like Tarantino's directorial style and I think that unique vision would give Trek a much needed shot in the arm when it came to storytelling.

 

At the very least, we'll be treated to a film that isn't trying to re-create Wrath of Khan beat for beat.

Yes, this, a thousand times. Star Trek and Tarantino are both wonderful things, it's almost impossible for me to imagine the two intersecting, and yet it's guaranteed to challenge them both in interesting ways. And they're both established brands that don't honestly have a lot to lose if the experiment doesn't pan.

Um but Tarantino is good though? Bay is ill-suited to everything because he doesn't make movies. Whether you're a fan or not, the thing that Tarantino does, he does very well.

 

Edit: And yes, I recognize that there's a thing Bay does, and that he also does that thing very well, too. But it's a thing that very infamously does not translate into a cohesive product as a film. So it's not a very appropriate comparison, even as hyperbole (since the part that does line up ... isn't an exaggeration.)

The Rock and Bad Boys aren't movies? Just because he ruined forever all your childhoods or whatever the cry is nowadays?
 
Hell have you even watched Pain & Gain?
 
The Transformers films are as they are because that is what people going in to see "Transformers" will want to see. Lots of kasplodey and over the topness. MTMTE-style minutae isn't going to pack the theatres.
 

Whether you're a fan or not, the thing that Tarantino does, he does very well.

Ok but because you're not a fan you get to be dismissive of another director?

I grew up watching Tarantino. I grew up watching Star Trek. While I had no interest in the Abrams era and haven't watched those flicks I've still loved Tarantino's recent work. So for me it's all upside. I'm not invested in Star Trek anymore so if he crashes and burns like a separated saucer making an emergency landing - no loss.

 

And Tarantino's got such a filmography that the jokes are endless.

 

CUT TO:

 

INT. LOUNGE

 

An excited Ensign Clarence is chatting up a green-skinned alien in a low cut dress (are there any other kind?) as they both sit at the bar nursing some synthehol.

 

Clarence: "He couldn't give a hug about nothing except rockin' and rollin', living fast, dying young, and leaving a good-looking corpse. I'd watch holovids of Captain Kirk and I'd want to be him so bad. Kirk looked good. Now I ain't gay but Kirk was prettier than most women, y'now? Most women. You know, I've always said if I had to hug a guy, now I mean had to if my life depended on it... I'd hug Kirk."

Alien Babe: "I'd hug Kirk."

Clarence: "Really?"

Alien Babe: "Well, when he was alive. Not now."

Clarence: "Well, I don't blame you. So... so we'd both hug Kirk."

Oh, so you weren't implying "lol bayformers, now do my little pony with moar explosions" with the Doctor Who comment, and just hadn't considered that that would be the inevitable way it would be read? So many layers of nuance and careful consideration I missed in your quippy one-line dismissal. It sure isn't like Bay has an established track record for approaching franchise properties and Tarantino doesn't. I eagerly await your measured insights into why Tarantino is unlikely to be successful in a one-off franchise property experiment that can't help being a Shin Godzilla-like "what if this franchise itself existed in an alternate universe" on the face of it.

 

Edit: More seriously, I don't see any productive direction for this line of argument and don't intend to continue it, but that's at least in part because, you know, I didn't see a productive direction for discussion from the original line of objection, either. Tarantino is definitely not going to ruin any more childhoods with this experiment than Bay has with his franchise.

Nope.

Just that Bay does visual spectacles that revel in excess, which isn't what Doctor Who is about.

Tarantino apes 70s movie stylings, uses the f-word a lot and has that scene where two people have a chat while one bleeds to death, and that's not what Star Trek's about.

 

 

It sure isn't like Bay has an established track record for approaching franchise properties and Tarantino doesn't.

No but Bay's definitely shown a lot more flexibility in his film career and Tarantino just... does the same. And the same. And the same.
