If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (29 July 2020 - 01:51 PM)

It's becoming readily obvious that there's a lot of people in the world whom are fundamentally unhappy and intent on making as many people as possible just like them.

@  repowers : (29 July 2020 - 07:46 AM)

Turns out he wants you to have an UNhappy day! HAHAHA! Such villainy!

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 July 2020 - 04:56 AM)

Questioning them just makes them shout the same thing but louder until any reasonable person walks away in disgust. Then they claim that they won. There's nothing to analyze, it's just bullying.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 04:26 AM)

Especially since the words by our chancelor he was referring to ("I wish you a happy...") are pretty common.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 04:26 AM)

That "subliminal reverse speech" thing is particularly baffling. Does that mean anyone repeating those exact same words is inserting the same reverse speech by default? Or how does that work?

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 03:41 AM)

So of course they would prevent others from using their free speech to counter their own free speech.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 03:40 AM)

Doesn't surprise me at all. The popular narrative among right-wingers has been for years that simply disagreeing with them (as in, not letting them say their stuff unopposed) equals oppression of speech.

@  Maximus Ambus : (29 July 2020 - 02:07 AM)

I find it amusing on all the news videos about Covid I've seen the comments are from truthers, I notice the comments are closed on their own vids.

@  Maximus Ambus : (29 July 2020 - 01:39 AM)

Sadly the tinfoilers at work have been more tolerable then hate miners of my familys next generation I've endured. Airplane and The Naked Gun are just comedy films, not making statements on race, sex or disabled people.

Oh and I forgot to add my biggest gripe about Enterprise - Vulcans. When I said I wanted Trek to explore them more, I did not want them to be portrayed as your stereotypical "holier-then-thou" arrogant High Elves - for all intents and purposes, that's what they were like in Enterprise. So much, that sometimes the writers forgot Vulcans are meant to be logical, not emotional, and had some antagonistic Vulcans be actively trying to discredit Earth or just being dicks with humans for no logical reason whatsoever.

They kinda of explained that. One Vulcan said to Archer that other races were so single minded that they were easy to deal with, but Humans were so all over the place with their motivation that it almost scared them. He said that Humans reminded them of themselves. I recall he gave the impression that Vulacns wanted to guide Humans to the same path of "logic and reason" that they had found with with out all the troubles they went through.


Really? I guess Vulcans never met the Klingons at this point, then... icon-fire.gif I wonder how their logic deals with the whole "First I want to kill you, then if you defeat me I will congratulate you as a worthy opponent and invite you to drink bloodwine" mindset. icon-hotrod.gif

BTw, on that note... did the producers ever tell anyone WHO the mysterious shadowy time-lord-guy was supposed to be whom we have seen since Season 1?


Nope. I honestly don't think even they knew, lol. But wisely, the people who came in to work on Season 4 just ignored it once they'd used the Space Nazis to bring the Temporal Cold War to a close.


Your idea about the reason the ToS Klingons were so... different is quite nice. I liked the Enterprise explanation for the "no ridges" thing too. icon-hotrod.gif

So... I guess they were just "making it up as they went" with the Temporal War, much like on LOST?

And man, what's with ST and Space nazis? Is it, like a requirement that they have such episodes... Voyager had nazi Hirogens, ToS had nazi planets... I was quite disappointed Enterprise had it too. Guys, WWII was 60 years ago. Give it a rest already, nazis and soviets have been done to death in television as villains.

This was during Enterprise, so yeah they had already meat the Klingots. As for making "peace" with them I'm sure they had one of tow crews get killed before they sent some one who was pon farring and dealt with them.

People liked Seven not just because she was smokin' hot - but because she could ACT, and because her character was interesting and well-written.


i liked her too til she and the borg started getting shoved down our throats on a weekly basis. seems like every week itd be the seven of nine show. of course she was sleeping with one of the producers so that might explain why she got so much air time

QUOTE
OH yes. He probably had a mind-meld with Kelly some time ago. icon-hotrod.gif Actually, that just increased my disappointment with "Trek Wars" - all the actors, even 'Sylar' were spot-on for the roles (well, except for Simon Pegg, whoever thought he'd be a good Scotty?) - it's just that the asinine writing made them either underused or gave them totally different personalities (no, I will not forgive emotional Spock...)


but...what about the original episodes where he got emotional?

Yes, Voyager completely neutered the Borg via over-exposure. And the Q. Two crimes I can never forgive that series for. But at least the book series revived the Borg as a genuine threat, and brought their arc to a satisfying close.

Recent novels have proven the Tholians and Breen can make great antagonists for the Federation, and provide for a much-needed break from Romulans or Klingons as the go-to villains of the week. And although I'd never heard of them before some of these books, the Tzenkethi also seem to be huge pains in the ass. Even the Gorn could be interesting (and different from the norm) villains, provided the setting is the 23rd century as they were apparently on better terms with the Federation during the 24th.

im still trying to figure if taking us (the viewers) into the contiuum was a good idea. sure it gave us a good episode (death wish i think it was?), but q lost some of his charm then. sure, we KNEW they were there, but actually seeing more of them? not so good. expect for suzi plakson icon-silverbolt.gif

q was great when he was the condescending a$$ that pestered picard and sucked as the love-struck for janeway. i attribute that to delancie and mulgrew being good friends before voyager started

plus its voyager so...lol

they were mentioned in a ds9 episode. cant remember which one right off (have you noticed im rather terrible with episode names? lol), but it was the one where sisko finally became a captain and odo kills a changling. in the ep, they were very concerned about a war with them starting. well, theyre worried about ANY war starting lol but things seemed more tense with them (i also think they said the federation had ALREADY been in a war with them at some point)

oh yeah. in ds9 they came up with that weapon that was able to shut down federation vessels didnt they? wonder if they ever figured out how they did that? been wantin to watch ds9 again anyway...

The biggest problem with Voyager is something SF Debris touches upon in his reviews all the time: Janeway refuses to compromise her principles in order to get this ship full of people she is responsible for home. Three separate encounters with Q and never once did Janeway ask if Q would oblige them by taking them home. Heck, she flat out refused a return ticket home because she woudn't touch glowy fingers with Q.

Then again, Voyager never was any worse for wear after an episode, even when it was attacking Borg Unimatrix Complexes. In the real world, the sheer amount of damage Voyager sustained in its first two seasons (To say nothing of it's poorly realized "organic" Computer system) would have rendered it a useless hulk. It's a good thing they made those twenty plus Photon Torpedoes, Five Shuttles, and Fifteen replacement Gel Packs last seven years and countless light years to get home.

Plus, you know, despite being on "Replicator Rations" there was always plenty of power for the Holodeck.


Voyager could have been a really good show if any kind of care had gone into it.

Indeed. Karl's the best part of J.J. Trek. He's the only guy who actually does his best to do his stuff right.
Not even Quinto is anywhere near awesomeness of Karl. Quinto has the looks but rest... PFFFT! Can't even do Vulcan greeting, as if it's super-complicated gymnastics.

So yeah, Karl = Awesome.
And with Judge Dredd he continued to prove it. I'm not being sarcastic, he IS awesome.

As for Voyager... good God! That's a show that advocated suicide out of BOREDOM. Yeah. In their first Q episode they encounter a Q that wants to commit suicide simply because he's BORED. That is mindbogglingly idiotic. And then there's warp 10 episode... a pinnacle of moronic idiocy.
