was she in the first 3 seasons of the cartoon? If not then she's on no one's list because they don't think she exists.

@  Cyoti : (20 November 2019 - 11:23 PM)

It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2019 - 04:14 PM)

Why has there been no new Minerva toys? I’m surprised at Takara. The Titan Master head doesn’t count.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

Kinda an interesting coincidence seeing that a few others have started watching DS9 again, as well.  Started myself a few weeks ago (took a week off for Otakon), but am on the first Mirror world episode, myself, Crossover.

I still enjoy whenever Elim Garak is on.  He is one of my favorite semi-recurring characters in Star Trek.

next time i get in a trek mood, im gonna try to watch them in order; enterprise, original, movies, tng, movies, ds9 and voyager. i also thought id try to watch them by stardate (to a point anyway). like, alternate between tng and ds9 when appropriate, ditto for ds9, voyager and the tng movies. i have to get up to switch discs anyway, so why not? plus itd be a different way of watching them

Watching by stardate would turn into a nightmare for any story involving time travel.  (Didn't this conversation come up once before?  Or am I thinking of the Doctor Who thread?)

 

Although now I'm curious, what's the very first episode in chronological order?  Is it TNG's "Time's Arrow"?  (I'm pretty sure the earliest moment would be Q and Picard witnessing the birth of life on Earth in "All Good Things...", but that's such a brief scene in a 2-part episode.)

It WAS the who thread, but im not talking chronological order like i was there. I simply mean, say that the last tng ep before ds9 starts is 46723 (yes thats a random stardate). And say emissary is stardate 46727. Id watch up to said episode of tng (or the end of the disc), then pop in ds9. Id watch that disc, then go back to whatever disc is next of tng. After that, switch to ds9, and continue switching back and forth between shows, then do the same when i get to the movies and voyager.

Tl;dr-id essentially be watching them in the order they aired

I hope that makes more sense...

Hell, the first edition of the Star Trek Chronology book had the original series episodes listed in stardate order. Same with the later edition.

 

Basically, watch them in production order, and you're fine.

Yeah, it is interesting reading the trivia and stuff on the DS9 episodes after I watch them, also interesting that they did not air in stardate order (for the episodes that had a stardate.)

 

The idea of chronological order reminds me of last year when a friend and I watched through A Certain Magical Index and A Certain Scientific Railgun in chronological order.  It was a lot of disk changing, sometimes seeing the same episode with a change in perspective (and style, as it was a different director and animated at a different time).  It was a long but fun ride, though.

I believe the winner is Spock and Bones five thousand years in the past in "All Our Yesterdays" (discounting the "All Good Things..." scene).

I think the very last episode chronologically is "Living Witness."

In real life, the VOY staff obviously forgot to account for every ancillary story and probably future sequels wanting to revisit the Delta Quadrant in less than 700 in-universe years, har har har! Even Q claimed in another episode that the Federation would have a presence in the Delta Quadrant in the 25th century.

 

Then again, Star Trek has always been miserably bad at having aliens magically know Earth units of measurement.

Maybe what tec means is that in the LW timeline, it took Voyager years to get home. That timeline was erased by Future Janeway in the series finale

True, but that timeline split would've been after the Doctor's backup program had been left behind.

And yeah, the real mystery is why the Federation (seemingly) had no presence in the Delta Quadrant in 3074. There really needs to be a followup story of some sort. . .

Let's consider this for a second. Space is big. Huge. Vast. It's the ginormous empty void that within which all the planets and suns and other stuff are floating aimlessly about.

 

And let's also consider that a presence in the Delta Quadrant doesn't necessarily mean a large presence there. The Federation has a presence in the Beta Quadrant, but most Federation territory is in the Alpha Quadrant. For all we know, by the time of "Living Witness", all the Federation had out there was a few token outposts on the fringes.

Yeah, there's no reason to assume that whatever presence the Federation has in the Delta Quadrant encroaches on Kyrian/Vaskan space.

 

We can probably assume it didn't take the Doctor all that long to run into some representatives of Starfleet after finally leaving that world, though. Slipstream or something even faster would've been fairly commonplace in the Alpha/Beta Quadrants by that period, and the Federation's most advanced vessels (like the TImeships) appear to be capable of nearly instantaneous travel throughout this galaxy, at least.
