My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

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)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲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)

Bossk Saw

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

Bass XD

@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  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)

Oof-

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

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

Heh

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)

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

They just want people to be very clear on what they're getting.  There are many potential things worth worrying/complaining about; this isn't one of them.

This is the first time that we've had a Star Trek series centered solely around one character.  Particularly one who's already a cultural icon.  It's not creative, but it makes sense.  It's going to get the attention of casual fans.

Looks like the Starfleet uniforms have the TNG silhouette with a high collar and separate shirt/pants with the color layout of Voyager jumpsuits.  Possibly with AGT commbadges, but I can't be sure.

Finally saw the clip. It was just a few seconds that shows an Ensign asking Picard his name, and Picard just giving him this humorous look.

No, those are completely new uniforms, not just re-used/reproduced costumes.

Remember that this is 20 years after the "new" uniform design seen in the TNG movies. It's time for a change.

(As for a practical, production-based reason, high-collared costumes are probably easier to deal with than the layered grey-shouldered uniforms.)

Strange they'd go back to the colored yoke, though, very similar to VOY's uniforms (which were also 2 piece, whereas I believe DS9's early uniforms were jumpsuits). I definitely prefer the TNG movie style gray yoke with colored undershirt to denote division.

not really a change though is it? i mean, its basically a redesigned ds9/voyager uniform and seems like a step backwards. im not saying i dont like them. its just weve seen a similar design before and i was hoping for something new

My favorite uniforms were the movie 2-6 and the gray shoulders. But if there is any point in showing department on the clothing, you probably want to see it from back and sides, not just a little neck.

I am halfway convinced that Star Fleet's uniform designer is secretly Q, constantly changing up the uniforms on a whim. 

 

 

And as crazy as the idea sounds, there is some alpha cannon to support this idea.

On the FC/DS9 uniforms, in addition to the undershirt, they also have a division colored stripe on the cuffs, so it should be easy enough to tell regardless of the angle.

Man. That really is the Countdown uniform isn't it. Here's to hoping they acknowledge some of the novel canon too...

For those interested in the math: 20 years after Nemesis (2379) is 2399. The Hobus supernova (and Spock's disappearance) was in 2387.

The (now-obliviated) alternate future seen in "All Good Things" was 2395. Star Trek Online takes place in 2409.

According to both the novelverse and STO, Picard's son Rene was born in 2381, so he'd be 18. Old enough that Jean-Luc and Beverly wouldn't need to be watching over him, so he need not turn up at all.

The current "present day" in the novels is late 2386 (as of the latest Titan novel), so there's plenty of room (13 years) for TrekLit writers to build a bridge from the Pocketverse to Picard, assuming the new series doesn't do anything too crazy.

Barring changes to Picard's personal history (like saying he retired immediately after the Shinzon incident, or never married Beverly, or something), the only real sticking points would be DS9,
Spoiler

and Data's resurrection.
Spoiler


A lot of the other big changes in the novels are sufficiently ambiguously handled that they could be easily retconned as the Federation having incomplete information (which, in at least one case, was already explicitly established), or just smoothed over in the 13-year gap.

I suspect no attempt will be made by the show or the current Pocketverse to merge the two continuities.  And F Star Trek Online.

Without spoiling anything, the latest TNG novel seems to be setting up the possibility for a change in the Pocketverse status quo. It makes me wonder if they're writing the next chapter with the new series specifically in mind.

This would please me, but I can't say I'm truly expecting it.

I mean, Pocket's license is specifically tied to the film/TV franchise. They have to account for the new series, even if it doesn't have to account for them, which means they'll inevitably need to either course-correct or retcon. For that matter, that's been why they've been dragging their feet getting to Hobus, to see what the official canon has to say about that event.
