x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

I had a feeling they would.  And I love this Enterprise.

 

I had not caught "Una" before.  Is that new?

I think it's said once in the Discovery season 2 finale, but it's easy to miss.

 

That makes six Star Trek series in various stages.  Which ones will actually make it to the screen and which ones will die of COVID-19?

Out of them all, I hope this one makes it. Anson Mount was fantastic as Pike; easily my favourite thing about that season of Discovery. I'd love to see more of that character.

I hope they actually go episodic with this one.  We've got enough series with season-long story arcs, and one that's a bit looser wouldn't be a bad thing.  Or at worst, pull a Dr Who and have a background plot that doesn't really matter until the season finale.

The news could not come at a better time. Might not see it until late next year but will completely be worth it. Mount is amazing, Peck is superb, and Romijn just stellar in these roles. Wonder if well see Boyce or other Cage characters show up in cameos?

My preference would be for it to be largely episodic while allowing for some character-based story arcs.  Each episode can generally stand alone but there's not a complete reset button every week.

 

The title, at least, hints that it will be more about exploring and space weirdness than long plots.

This sounds incredible - it's very much the show I kept wishing I was watching during Disco S2, and I'm not worried enough about continuity and lore to be bothered with how well a direct prequel to TOS set five minutes before Kirk and McCoy show up will line up with the original events. But damn are they spreading themselves thin here.

 

Episodic would make a lot of sense, too. This isn't a premise that supports having a central antagonistic conflict and Disco and Picard both needed that to have their season arcs.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Star Trek has been suffering from a lack of vison and forwards thinking, the people in charge of the brand have forgotten that Star Trek is meant to be. I haven't watched the Discovery or Picard but I don't feel motivated to bother with them and I am more looking for a Star Trek that not using old characters to simply trash them or set in a time frame between previous series, I rather see even furrier into the future of the Trek universe, much like how Next Gen is set a century after the original, so I'll likely pass on this series as well.

I guess it's because Discovery is a prequel to a show that came out in the 60's, making it feel like it's riding off the originals coatails rather than being a unique entity in its own right.

 

With Picard, I get the feeling that its here for The Next Generation nostalgia rather than taking the universe forwards.

 

If they were making a whole new Star Trek show, set after all the others and about a new group of characters, then it would feel like it was doing its own thing.

That may be what it looks like superficially, although I can safely say that wasn't what I experienced watching it.  :D

 

That isn't an endorsement, just an obvseration.

 

This show, I'm much more optimistic about. Like others, I hope it's a little more episodic than other recent Trek ventures, but whatever the format I believe the characters (particularly Pike) will be strong enough to sell it. I'm not sure if it was just the way Anson Mount played Pike, or a combination of his acting and the way the character was written, but the Pike we got was eminently watchable, and exactly the kind of person that's always got me most excited about the hopeful ideals of Star Trek and its vision of what people can become at their best.

What keeps me from agreeing is that for the first time there will be THREE Star Trek shows running at the same time and they've hinted at more in the wings.  If it were going to be the next seven years by itself, I would say "Let's do something new", but there seems to be plenty to go around.

 

Besides, Discovery STARTED as a prequel, but it isn't any more.  Now it is new characters SEVERAL centuries in the future.

 

I don't believe we should keep jumping a hundred years when we make a new series.  I liked it just fine that TNG, DS9, and Voyager held up 14 contiguous years.  And it is fine that Picard cheated a bit and jumped a few extra years.  So we have, in general, what I want with Picard.  Most of the characters are new, new ship, new even kind of ship.  They obviously carried Picard forward from TNG and Seven from Voyager, but that is in keeping with tradition.  DS9 carried O'Brian forward and then Worf.  Voyager carried Nick Locarno forward.  So now we have a prequel and a continuation AND centuries skipped show.  Something for everyone.

Discovery

Picard

Strange New Worlds

Lower Decks

Section 31

Untitled Nickelodeon animated series (rumored to be "Prodigy")

 

That's a hell of a lot of Star Trek, if they all actually make it to production.  I think the last two are the most perilous just because there hasn't been much information given about them or any real indication that they've progressed beyond the the planning stages.

 

But they all have short seasons compared to the Berman era.  Maybe it's too much and they're going to burn out the brand again, but I'm gonna enjoy the hell out of it while it lasts.
