King Nine, however, will not return.

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -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.

@  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.

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)

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

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

@  ▲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)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲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)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

Nice to see Seven back... not so much the cube. Was kinda hoping they'd keep the Borg out of it, unless this is going to be the "destroy the collective" storyline, hopefully taking at least some cues from the Destiny novels.

 

If they do bring Data back, with absolutely no nods to "Cold Equations", it's going to be a little annoying. There's not likely to be a better Data resurrection story idea than the one presented there.

They already had a throwaway line in TNG establishing he could "age".


Wasn't that a possible future though?

Of course Data can "age". He's an android; all he has to do is make cosmetic modifications to his chassis!

You don't have to change your appearance to age.  All you have to do is stay alive.

 

But Data didn't do that.

Well this might just get me to bite the bullet on CBS All Access. I don't want to see the Borg again - God I'm sick of them - but Seven? Data? Giving the TNG era some televised closure? I'm down for all of that.

I'm surprised at the Borg hate going on. I mean, it's a show about Picard. I'm not a huge fan of the Borg post-Voyager either but I can't say them being a driving point of the narrative really surprises me. First Contact was the most critically successful TNG film for a reason even if I fundamentally dislike it.

There can be a Borg cube without the Borg showing up.  In the Countdown comics it's established that Nero's ship has extensive Borg technology.  Perhaps the Romulans captured a cube and have reverse engineered it following the Hobus event.  I have a feeling we're going to see a lot of the events leading up to and following the destruction of Romulus.

From a business perspective, this series MAY be a reaction/competition to the Orville.  Star Trek was hemorrhaging fans to this little independent comedy that "was more Star Trek than current Trek".  CBS may have created this series to try to win longtime fans back.  If Orville created a good third season, those fans may leave forever...and take all of their merchandise buying money with them.  Let's be honest, there is no money in the shows, it is in that plastic dog doodie with a delta on it that fans WILL buy.  I know it is anecdotal, but the dealers room was larger than the speaking room at the 25th anniversary convention in Anaheim.  Paramount encouraged that as it gave the show free press.

 

Fans will not see the specifics of the show, they will be lost in the rose covered stupor of how the franchise treated them, and when they have the warm fuzzy, they will get on line and purchase all kinds of stuff they don't need for far too much.

I don't hate the Borg. I just had a friend growing up who was obsessed with them, and that kinda soured them for me.

Also we have no clue what that Cube is.  Could be the Borg, could be the remains of the Borg.  Just cause it's one shot doesn't mean they're back.

It could be sector seven rebuilding the one from First contact, and it's taken 20 years to put it all back together. We don't know

The thing with the Borg is that First Contact turned them from a massive community Commune into a massive Cult of Personality. The Borg never really recovered from that.

 

I'd argue Enterprise's Regeneration did a fantastic job of "rehabilitating" the threat of the Borg, even if they had to crib Lovecraft's "In the Mountains of Madness" to do it.

The Borg are almost exactly Star Trek's Daleks. They're very popular and get brought back more often then they should, but all it takes is one really good story to remind viewers of just why they are dangerous in the first place. Regeneration does this for the Borg and Resolution does it for the Daleks.

Yeah, Regeneration did manage to make the Borg creepy again. That they said so little, and kind of returned to their origins in Q Who and BoBW as being "the ultimate user". The Enterprise pulling up to the Borg ship just silently slicing that freighter up into chunks really brought back some of their TNG vibes.

Honestly, take away the nonsense of the Queen and return the Borg to a collective ultimate endurance predator. Their only need is to consume.

 

Heck, retcon the Queens existence as some unlucky race's effort to "dam the tide" as it were, by giving a overriding consciousness some control over the Collective's need to assimilate. Then turn Voyager's ending on its head, in that Future Janeway's virus didn't destroy the Borg, but rather just eliminated the only actual stopgap measure put into place to try and check the Borg. Without a fallible intellect at the helm, the Borg become a biomechanical flood, leaving nothing in their wake save more Drones for the Collective.

 

 

EDIT: Also, just hit me that we see a scene with a Soong android in pieces. I'd like to think Data's rights as a sapient being were respected in the form of B4 so...could that potentially be Lore?
