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)

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.

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

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

@  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.

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

@  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"

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.
