@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

I'd like to see the Enterprise-F be a Vesta-class (testbed for Starfleet's Slipstream tech), or perhaps its successor depending on when it goes into service.

I hope they give us a Rian Johnsonized Picard.


All I can hear are the screams of angry nerds from the future, when the new show does not play out as they had been imagining for the past 25 years.

Picard's a bit different, though. He already had his juvenile, macho action hero phase... we all must remember the dune buggy nonsense in Nemesis, when they actually got into a firefight with the native (presumably pre-warp) population of a planet. Hopefully the fans have worked that shit out of their system, although judging by the reaction it seems like that side of Picard wasn't something anybody was craving.

 

Anyone who admires the character of Jean-Luc Picard does so because of the man's ethics... the principles he upheld for 7 years on TNG, and the idealized take on humanity he represents. IMO, regardless of what Picard is actually doing these days (captaining a ship, a starfleet admiral somewhere, an ambassador, whatever), whether it's something we expected or not, provided the new show remains faithful to the character of Picard we all loved from TNG, then it'll be exactly the kind of show that this world sorely needs right about now.

Didn't know a lot of this, so it was interesting.

 

Admittedly I'm starting to question Midnight's Edge. This video seems a bit too vocal on tying Trek into the fighting over the Ghostbusters reboot and Disney Star Wars. It's not as vocal as some accounts out there but some parts of this video carry an air of 'I'm just saying....'

meh, I'm hesitant to mix Trek up with any of those other unpalatable controversies. If there was a fan "revolt" at Discovery, then it went completely under my radar. People either seemed to like it or not, and either watched it or didn't, but i never saw much "outrage" comparable to what went on with Ghostbusters or TLJ. What there does seem to be more of this time around is fans who aren't yet really sure about some of the some of the seemingly pointless changes (like the physical appearance of the Klingons), but are still giving the show the benefit of the doubt for the moment, and watching it anyway... I'd describe a lot of the audience for the Abramsverse films the same way. Hell, that's even how I'd describe myself in relation to DIscovery... I'm unsure about aspects of it, but there are some things about it I've quite liked. Although I am of the opinion they need to (gracefully) shift certain things to become more aesthetically faithful to the Prime timeline, if that's really where it's set.

 

Personally, all this legal/ownership drama between Paramount and CBS is offputting to me. Just make a decent Star Trek show that respects (within reason) what came before, and that succeeds at convincing a new generation that maybe the world doesn't have to be a cesspool. That's what Star Trek is supposed to do.

 

Les Moonves certainly looks like a tool, though; that asshole can't be replaced quickly enough. That's mostly what I got out of that video. Such a shame that people like Moonves control so much of our entertainment and pop culture... it makes you wonder if most of the good things that came out of the industry over the years were just accidents. With him at the helm, I'm kind of shocked CBS Digital ever got the approval to undertake the TNG Remastered project for the blu-ray release.

 

All these "in development" series mentioned in this video kind of worry me, too. Star Trek suffered over-saturation and fatigue before, precisely because the suits decided that there always needed to be Trek of some kind on the air. Seems like the idiots are going down the same road again, but with the disadvantage that Trek isn't as monumentally popular now as it was during the peak of TNG and DS9. Recipe for disaster.
