I almost died this morning when I realized that one of my stranger 6th graders, Francis, has the exact same speech pattern as James T. Kirk. LOLOLOLOL. I was highly discomposed.

They could totally get away with one episode like that.
They could possibly get away with two.
They did like 14.

They did,



gangsters
Romans
the shoot out at the OK Corral
medieval stuff
the planet that "appears to be a duplicate of Earth" where diseased Grups are terrorized by children
the episode which is pretty much just a Shakespearean acting troupe performing on the Enterprise till someone gets killed
they see Samurai
Alice in Wonderland creatures
Abe Lincoln
a squire in a pirate shirt playing a harpsichord in his castle
they go back in time to 1968
they go back in time to 1969
Landru's planet looks exactly like The Old West, except for when it looks like medieval times
they go back to the 1930's ( the most boring, frustrating episode of all, inexplicably loved by everyone on Earth but me and everyone I know personally :huh: )
the planet infested with flying rubber pancake amoebas looks exactly like the "duplicate of Earth" where the Grups die
they visit Space Indians
Space Hippies
Nazis
they meet Apollo
and a group of ancient Greek psychics

DS9 had some good LARP eps

The one where Sisko pretends to be that guy holding hostages in the concentration camps
The one where Sisko is a writer in the 50s or something writing DS9


I haven't watched DS9 in too long :(

They do seriously need a new series though. I've heard a couple of cool ideas that people have had for it but I guess CBS owns the rights and they feel that it would be too costly or some shit...

Wow is this site fucked up. Now I can't see my own last post, just 2 of Jolly Johnny's.
I said,

Speaking of that, I haven't seen the Fahrenheit 451 (1961) movie for many years, just watched it again yesterday, was blown away by it's predictive power...the wall screen TV's look exactly like today's flatscreens, the shit-ass "reality" shows where you, the viewer, have to help "decide the fate" of the contestants, the wife is on a ton of prescription drugs and is therefore, a zombie, and she even pops a headphone thing in her ear which looks exactly like the headphones on an iPod.

And I was going to add, when the protagonist is about to get a promotion, his wife is excited 'cause they'll be able to get another wall TV...she's heard that it's like the TV world envelopes you. Had very similar conversation with room mate excited to get more money 'cause he was reading about a gaming set up where you have 6 giant monitors.

tiny white penis
12-06-2010, 09:26 PM
Yeah Fahrenheit and 1984 have been used as how-to manuals by the government and Corporate America, I think. They're scary levels of accurate, Fahrenheit maybe more so if you really look at the details.

This is the impression that some fans (TNG fans mostly) like to give, but there's just as much campy crap in the other series, especially TNG.

I remember 3rd season episodes were depressing because they had no budget but the Brodinator got me curious so I looked over the 3rd season and here are some comments.



The episode where Kirk switches bodies with a chick, sucks, but seeing William Shatner act like a woman trying to act like a man is a must, must, see.




Mariette Hartley



This is one of my favorite Star Trek aliens.
I love that cute Pokemon design.
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y199/Wilhelm-Scream/STSavageCurtain.jpg





I wanted to take advantage of Rayna. Her Bambi eyes whimper, "Use me?"




Childhood haunted by ears of leader of Space Hippies. Episode is depressing.




The Lights of Zetar...another "incorporeal alien entity". They are great on the budget, since they always possess human actors. :rolleyes:




Yvonne Craig as green dancing girl, inmates have taken over the asylum...episode is depressing and cheap but hot.




I can't use photobucket so I'm done now. :down:

It's nice though that they went out there a bit. So many Star Trek aliens are just add a ridge on the nose, crinkle the ears, put a couple waves in the forehead. And then the races that look exactly like humans, whoa. :eek:

How does this happen?


My sweet, sweet Wilhelm. :(

Wilhelm
09-13-2011, 08:19 PM
How does this happen?


My sweet, sweet Wilhelm. :(
Netflix, I watched out of curiosity to see how much it sucked and I fell in love with the characters, so when it's a bad episode, you just feel bad for the characters you love, that they are stuck in a bad episode.



I got used to Janeway's voice, and she's such a man, the few times she's chicky it's amazing.




I've always liked big, voluptuous chicks, but something about Kes standing around with her pixie body in skintight clothes is hot.




Everyone agrees the doctor from The Howling (1981) is funny.




I've liked Chakotay since he was in Night of the Comet (1984).




Tuvok says funny stuff all of the time.




B'Elanna is an 8 year old bitch and she loves it.



The only one I still hate is Neelix of course, and even he...I can't believe it, even he has watchable episodes. :huh:
You just have to try not to look at him, his face, his hair or his clothes, or listen to his voice.


Weirdly I saw the criticism that the show was too cutesy and not dAhrk, like DS9...but I have been shocked at all the gruesome, chilling stuff. It's often like a Horror show, emphasis on Body Horror which I like.
And despite the fact that the writers consistently suck, very often setting up good story ideas and then having no idea how to resolve it all in 2 or 3 minutes at the end, they did some brilliant things.


- I remember being cynical about the transparent attempt to infuse new energy (stranding Star Trek people far away with new aliens, planets, and no Federation nearby to save their asses) when I heard about it, but it works. When it's a good episode, it feels even more wild west than DS9 did...less safe, and they run into weird shit.


- I also rolled my eyes about "d'Oh! Ratings are down. Hey! Let's get an even hotter chick on the show! :eek: With like, huge tits, and a painted on catsuit! :fingerguns:"...but the manipulation there was not only to lure in dudes with a hot chick. It was deeper.
The Borg chick has a perfect body, so she's hot, but, she was enBorged as a little girl and has little memory of being human and once they free her from the Borg she starts out missing the only life she has known, as a drone in a collective.
So, this was more like feeding nerdy dudes what they want, seeing the tables turned, the unattainable white-hot blonde chick with huge tits who:
- is awkward around people
- is scared of being alone
- feels like an outsider
- is anxious about fucking up on a date, etc.

So I was ":rolleyes:" for a new reason, nonetheless, it is entertaining watching poor, hot Seven of Nine trying to act tough because she's embarrassed that she's scared of jokes, parties and the possibility that no one will ever like her. You feel sorry for her, and her perfect ass. I thought she was just going to be a hot bad-ass chick, which would not have been as entertaining.


The show is still loaded with retardation but I can't quit watching the characters, much like when I watched all The Office episodes after I gave that show a chance even though I was unimpressed by the first 2 or 3 episodes I watched.

So, one is humbled by change...I never would have imagined I'd ever have, so many "Favorite Janeway Moments." :huh:
That was always one of the funny parts, in Trekkies 2...watching the idiots rave about Voyager, the housewife who loves Janeway because "She a strong woman without having to be a, 'witch with a capital B'. lololololol"
I have to re-watch that now.
I don't know.
I don't know what happened to me.

so how does the Voyager crew make it home? or do they?

Wilhelm
09-13-2011, 09:46 PM

They make it back.
The end of the series is like a macro-version of the ends of many of the episodes...good story builds and builds, you're intrigued, can't imagine how they'll get out of it, then plif, it's magically wrapped up and it's over and you're like ":ugh:hmm"

The last episode starts with most of the crew back on Earth having returned many years before, Janeway has white hair, the Asian guy sports prosthetic jowls, etc.
A happy ending, except for the fact that 7, Chakotay are dead and Tuvok is in an asylum 'cause of degenerative brain disease.

Welp, Janeway figures that was a lame ending so she RISKS IT ALL TO BREAK THE TEMPORAL PRIME DIRECTIVE BY GOING BACK IN TIME TO FORGE A BETTER ENDING!
So, they narrowly escape the Borg and zoop through their magical portal and they see Earth and young Janeway goes, "Set a course, for home." and then I go, "THAT'S THE END? :-?:crazy::inhate::dood::rolleyes::shrug:

Wilhelm
09-13-2011, 09:48 PM
It was my subliminal influence.What you like that show?

Daisy
09-13-2011, 09:56 PM
Yup. :) For the same reason - the characters.

Mee
09-14-2011, 02:35 AM
I can't stand the characters in Voyager, this is mindblowing to me. :huh: Do I need to watch it again? The only one I ever really liked was the Doctor, sometimes Paris.

Chakotay, Janeway, Tuvok, Kes, and Kim are all super boring :huh:

Neelix, like you said, is annoying, and so is Torres.


That said, have you seen the one where Q shows up and wants to make a baby with Janeway?

Wilhelm
09-15-2011, 06:24 PM
Yeah, I'd like to customize a Star Trek collection, every episode of every show minus any episode where people are wearing historical costumes.

This purges,

Kirk, McCoy and Spock meet Romans in Space.

Kirk, McCoy and Spock meet Gangsters in Space.

Kirk, McCoy and Spock meet Nazis in Space.

Kirk, McCoy and Spock meet Abraham Lincoln in Space.

Anything based on Sherlock Holmes.

No Mark Twain.

No Civil War re-enactments.

No Jane Austen.

No Robin Hood.



You'd have like a 5 disk set left.

Mee
09-15-2011, 06:45 PM
The Robin Hood one has some great stuff though. Worf smashing the mandolin? Come on.

Mee
09-15-2011, 06:47 PM
And are you not counting the DS9 past episodes? The one where Sisko ends up changing time to become a riot leader, I remember that one being really good. Then the one where he's Benny and yells "IT IS REAL *blubbering*"

Wilhelm
09-15-2011, 07:02 PM
I watched DS9 every time it was on and remember hardly anything about it except that I hate Sisko's kid, baseball,...

Mainly, I remember in Trekkies when some roleplaying nerds dressed as the people with the serrated noses, are asked "Who is your favorite captain?" one of them likes Picard and the others go, ":eek: :crazy:" and the nerd falls back into line, "Oh, yes...to choose anyone other than The Emissary would naught bee right!"

Mee
09-15-2011, 07:09 PM
I got really tired of the Emissary/Prophets stuff. :down:

I'm not a fan of those holodeck takeover things.

Wilhelm
09-15-2011, 09:55 PM
'Cause...after, the first time it happened...they, would've, figured out a way to make sure it never happens again or deemed holodecks too dangerous to use out in space on a ship, that can so easily be manipulated by, a, video game character...sso...

I was also realizing after seeing Voyagers Pon Farr episode, there's no way they would allow Vulcans to go out on ships if they were about to go insane and take over the ship in hopes of getting laid. :huh:

Lackey
09-15-2011, 09:56 PM
I'm a fan of artificial intelligence stories so I guess that's why I liked it, plus the other episode with the holodeck inside a ship inside a holodeck inside a ship... it's like Inception "dream within a dream" stuff so that's cool :gimble:

Mee
09-15-2011, 09:57 PM

Every Starship should just have a couple Vulcan love slaves on hand. "Break glass in case of emergency" type thing.

I do like holodeck inside a holodeck inside a holodeck.

Anyway, this is amazing. If you want to know what it's like to be on drugs, Mee...well, this flashed me back pretty hard.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFZDF3-Rg0U

I am pissed. I could watch those all day, like when the G.I. Joe ones came out, but it looks like the guy made like 3 or 4 and stopped.

Anyway, next, if you ever want to try understand how someone could come to appreciate Janeway, her personality may stand out more if one watches this scene with the original captain they chose who quit on her 2nd day, forcing them to call their #2 choice, Mullgroo.

I can not believe they were going to put that medicated librarian up there with Kirk, Picard and Sisko.

I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in Comics, but here goes


A new line of Star Trek comics is debuting this month, based on the Abrams reboot crew/universe, and each story will reimagine episodes from the original series.

As nerdy as it may be, that seems kind of interesting to me. :(

Cool. I do think its lame though, how they keep teasing and teasing the new movie with this and the videogame coming out, but have so far released little to no information about whether the movie is actually ever coming out. JJ Abrams is nothing if not the biggest cocktease ever.

Also Voyager Wil? Really?

I always thought that series was barely one step behind Enterprise as being the worst Star Trek series. I mean yeah some of the characters were cool but I don't know. Should I give it another chance?

Also your assessment of Seven of Nine is spot on lol.

The animated series, which I always thought was rather kickass, is on Netflix too.

Mee
09-20-2011, 10:35 AM
I did see something the other day about Abrams confirming he would direct Star Trek 2. :huh::up:

Wilhelm
09-20-2011, 07:00 PM
Also Voyager Wil? Really?

I always thought that series was barely one step behind Enterprise as being the worst Star Trek series. I had never seen Enterprise. I checked out 3 episodes. I either didn't love them or I hated them.
I had never seen Voyager. I checked out 3 episodes and had to see the 4th. Then I had to see the 5th. Then I had to see them all except the holodeck ones and the ones where someone is falsely accused of something and most of the ones where two crew members go to a planet and get stranded there. Later I found out, despite the fact that they already have a their own Jar Jar, they brought in a little girl. I was ready to skip those too, but the transparently manipulative odd coupling of the little girl being scared of 7 and then idolizing her, that I saw only because I wanted to check out how much it sucked (which is why I started watching Enterprise and Voyager in the first place), again, was entertaining to me.
Part of my fascination is because Voyager is supposed to be the suck, so it has nowhere to go but up.
Luckily with Netflix's synopses, I can avoid the hardcore crap I do not want to see. I would not have been able to do that when it was on and would have never made it to giving the show a chance.




The animated series, which I always thought was rather kickass, is on Netflix too.I own that shit, yo, in a weird box.

And it's the rarest case where I love the packaging as much as the contents.
Also, having just bought the entire Star Wars saga on Bluray, it just struck me as insane that the packaging for the Star Trek animated series is far by far superior to the packaging for the entire fucking Star Wars saga on Bluray.
:huh:

The art on the Star Wars set is shit. It's like covers for Watchtower magazine only not as skillfully wrought. :huh:

so i watch this bullshit channel that they added when over-the-air channels went digital or whatever. they added it, it's like 7.2 or something but they added it to cable too. anyway it is a THOUSAND TIMES BETTER than every other channel. i could live without cable, is the extent that i watch this, and i'm considering it cuz i'm sooooo poor. no ESPN would be hard but i can live with the interwebs for news and go to bars on saturdays to watch games.


but anyway this channel, it has an hour block of M*A*S*H that i watch religiously at 6. i eat and watch M*A*S*H. i respect M*A*S*H enough to put the asterisks in M*A*S*H. then later on in the night this channel plays Cheers. RLLY CHANNEL. and then right after Cheers? ANOTHER M*A*S*H EPISODE


so i be watchin this channel like all the time lately. and now they are advertising that they've gotten the original Star Trek (which I've watched like 2 episodes of in my life). so i'm excited. and also they are getting Batman. hahaha

So the pilot episode was cool, but its been kind of downhill since. Shrug.

TNG is mostly a snooze.


It has good characters, and there are good episodes, but a lot of them are really dull.


You could check out the original Trek for campy goodness, or Deep Space Nine for serious(ish) goodness. DS9 has by far the best action out of all of TV Trek. :up:

09-22-2011, 02:08 PM
I just watched the first Voyager with Q, not when he wants to have a baby with Janeway, and it was as good as any Star Trek.
A Q dude is trying to hide from Q and he takes them to the first moments of the universe and the delivery was funny when the .5 Klingon chick said "Captain, the ship can't withstand the origin of the universe. :concern:", and I usually hate metapop crap but I loved how he hid them as a Voyager Christmas ornament on a Christmas tree and how Q was talking "That's what they get for putting a woman in the captain's chair. :rolleyes:" shit.

Then, just like the original Star Trek, it intelligently dealt with social issues (assisted suicide/death penalty) and unlike, like, every other time, when they did their continuum-so-humans-can-perceive-it, I loved it. It was like my "Death's Waiting Room" thing.
The only bad thing was that Riker was on for a sec and the director obviously told Janeway "Riker is from real Star Trek and everyone loves him, so act like you're in awe and fucking love the fuck out of the opportunity to meet Riker or the fans'll think you're a bitch." 'cause she was all ":eek::eek::eek: Riker! Omgomgomgomgomg :inlove:" haha

At least City on the Edge of Forever didn't have any Borg.

One reason I could NEVER get into Voyager is that by the end of Next Gen and DS9 I was so so worn out on the Borg...just the ultimate crappy 90s style villains, the Venoms/Banes of Star Trek...and Voyager just seemed to have more focus on that.

Wilhelm
09-22-2011, 08:16 PM
Yes, they are the 90's, even though they're Cenobites. That's why the 90's suck, because they're really the late 80's.

Yeah they are ultimate of awful 90s villains. They came in in the 80s but they started getting super popular in the 90s. There's a couple good Borg stories (the first few in TNG are great, there were a couple in DS9 I enjoyed, First Contact is okay) but the shitty stories far outweighed the good.

"The plot sees the eponymous family forced to move to a new location, after the 10-year-old Eddie Munster (unaware that he is in fact a werewolf) transforms and attacks his peers on a scouting trip.

Grandpa Munster is now a 600-year-old “shapeshifter,” rather than a Dracula-like vampire.

Lily Munster now suffers from an eating disorder – namely, she likes to snack on suicide victims.

Marilyn Munster is a regular human who was adopted by the family, after her own cannibalistic mother attempted to eat her (when she was an infant)."

Looks like the whole premise of the original Munsters went completely over the head of this new guy. :-?

So really, it's not so much a remake of The Munsters and The Munsters charaters (superficially anyway) being used for a show of the same name.

Brian Singer and JJ Abrams team up for new Trek show?


Entertainment Weekly recently spoke to TV writer/producer Bryan Fuller about possibly revisiting "Star Trek" on the tube. Fuller, whose credits include "Pushing Daisies" and "Heroes," as well as the upcoming "Hannibal" series, told the magazine that he has spoken to director/producer Bryan Singer about bringing "Star Trek" back to television.

"Bryan and I are big fans of Trek and have discussed a take on what we would do, and we would love to do it," Fuller said. "I don’t think anything is going to happen in any official capacity until after the next movie comes out. And I'm sure it would be wisely under J.J. Abrams' purview of what happens. He’s the guardian of Trek right now."

Wilhelm
04-20-2012, 03:14 PM
Speaking of Bryan Singer, I watched all of Voyager and now I'm in the first season of Enterprise, and it struck me, if you watch Trekkies and Trekkies 2, they're both chock full of gay people praising Gene Roddenberry for imagining a world where everyone is accepted, a world without bigotry, and they sit and talk about how that's why so many gay people are drawn to Star Trek.

Buut, there have been lots of shows now with gay characters and I can't think of any Star Treks with homo main characters.

You've got Russians, Asians, Scottish people, White dudes, Black dudes, a Space-Native American, more Asians, aliens, a Black Vulcan, a woman captain, and old captain, inter-species love.
The gays love Star Trek so much, where's the gay representation?
Star Trek's so tolerant, where's your first gay captain?

Mmm, you can tell they meant well, but it feels like, "Does this need to be on TV? Would it suck if this had never been made? No."
Would it suck if Star Trek, Next Generation, DS9 or Voyager were never made? Yes, very much. How many gifs would Internet lose?


In the first episodes, I could not get into the vibe, 'cause it seemed like it was directed at women. The dudes were taking off their shirts whenever possible. They even did close ups, scanning the contours of their muscly torsos. I had just come off of Voyager, where I was in love with Janeway (if her hair wasn't in a bun), and 7of9, who totally won me over with her acting, despite her weird fish face, (Also her impossibly perfect body helped), and B'Elanna, who is cute, and Kes, who is annoying but it'd be great to sexually defile her.

In Enterprise, you've got this Asian chick who is a prissy wuss who is otherwise okay, not unwatchable, not compelling...but then the Vulcan chick is horrible. Why didn't anyone ever bring it up?! She Lip-Freaks after almost every line of dialogue. It's madness. She got lop-sided lip injections, and then, with her already bloated and misshapen lips, she Lip-Freaks whenever she stops speaking!
And then, what other hot chicks do we have?
Oh, sorry. That's all you get.

Well, in original Star Trek, you rarely saw much of Uhura or the hot blonde secretaries who handed Kirk his coffee and tablet so he could sign digital paperwork...but nearly every time they went to a planet, it was to meet a classic, wicked-attractive iconic chick of the 60's...and then show-wise, it was mostly dudes...like Enterprise. But it was dudes with must-watch personalities.


In Enterprise,

- Bakula is too famous. I just see Quantum Leap guy working at a new job, not "The Captain". He's not bad, but when he's good, it's just like, "Oh, Scott Bakula is a very professional actor." And his emotions are pretty much boiled down to:
- Squint
- Confused Squint
- "Stand up straight. This is a Historic Moment." - Stately
And his signature thing appears to be, allowing himself to get beaten up to buy time for others to save the day, which was awesome the first time I saw it, and then the second time, I'm like, "Is this dude a masochist? :crazy:"



- Then, Trip is the young George W. Bush, and I can't stand GWB, so it's difficult. He is like the down-to-Earth Han Solo of the show, so I like him, but, not enough to put him next to the Jean Luc tattoo on my back.

- Then, it's weird with the British guy. the episodes go.
Hate him.
He's cool.
Hate Him.
He's cool.
Hate him.

And they should have written him out of a few scenes, 'cause he is the worst actor I've ever seen on TV, for playing sick, or drunk. Holy fuck he starts acting like a 5 year old trying to pretend to be drunk. The worst I've ever seen. (And I've seen the Bob Newhart where they all get drunk, several times.) Really embarrassingly bad.



- The fat doctor is fat, but it is pretty amazing how well they rode the line between annoying and interesting, 'cause he's annoying, but I look forward to his scenes. Before I saw the show I thought he was just the grittier, darker 2000's re-imagining of Neelix, so, at least he's not Neelix.



- The Black guy is shit. It's like they got a strong-willed, cocky, snarky captain, and then they got a strong-willed, cocky, snarky engineer, and then they got a strong-willed, cocky, snarky security officer, and then they went, "Oh, shit! We have to have a Black guy." and someone said, "Oh, yeah...well, how about this strong-willed, cocky, snarky Black ensign." and someone said, "Guys, guys, we already have too many strong-willed, cocky, snarky guys." and then someone said, "Hey, I know. Go opposite. Make him simple and smiley and sunshiney, like one of the kids on Barney the Big Purple Dinosaur." , "YeAH! Opposite."
He sucks and I feel sorry for him, the lines they made him say. :( The writers fucked him.


There's a weird inconsistency. Some episodes are epic and gorgeous and I'm like, "Whoa, they finally figured out how to do Star Trek justice on the small screen. Sweet." and then there's a howlingly derivative, boring one where they go to a planet that looks like a park in California and at the end of the story you're like, "That....was, the story, you guys went with. :ugh: Yeah, I remember that story, from Buck Rogers in 1982, and Battlestar Galactica in 1979, and Space:1999, etc. etc."


I don't hate it though. And I have been impressed with the way they remembered to include details to show that Federation ways have not been established yet...like, people were on a planet and British guy was all wringing his hands worried about them and Hoshi goes, "Gawd :rolleyes: They don't have to check in every 15 minutes." and British guy goes, "Maybe they should." and, every show has to figure out how they'll keep the powerful transporter technology from ending the show after only 10 minutes.
In Voyager, Harry should have just held a sign up saying "Transporter won't work so don't ask. :ugh:".
Always, "They're too deep underground." "They're jamming our signal." "There's too much interference." "There's not enough power."
I like how in this, they have it but try not to use it 'cause, they're scared to use it, heh.
And they met the Ferengi and defeated them and then said, "I don't wanna see you guys within 100 light years of our ships from now on." heh, cute.


Anyway, it is my least favorite Star Trek but I'll watch all of them.

So I started watching The Original Series on Netflix because I've never really watched the Star Trek TV shows outside of Voyager and Enterprise (this is due because these were the shows that were ongoing when I was a kid). I just finished episode 6 and I can see why this started such a phenomenon. AWESOME is all I can say. It's also fun watching it after watching the original pilot first. I've read a couple of people say the original pilot was more cerebral and all I have to say is... BORING. Even Leonard Nimoy is super boring in the original pilot. However, after getting through the pilot... I love it.

William Shatner is the perfect blend of intellect, boldness, and sheer kick-assery. The constant clash between Bones and Spock. Sulu's adventurous spirit and Scotty's attitude. Fucking great. On to Ep 7: Mudd's Women.

Yeah Starfleet is basically the military. The security officers more so than any of the rest. Kirk beams down to planets cause he's Kirk, but Picard usually didn't, Janeway didn't, Starfleet has some rule about it, that captains aren't really supposed to go with away teams (with exceptions for certain situations, like diplomacy). I can't remember if that was ever brought up in TOS, maybe they didn't have it yet, but Kirk was always breaking rules anyway.

The crew of the Enterprise has to have combat training because if they didn’t, then they all wouldn’t be equipped with phasers. Guns aren’t given to people that aren’t trained to use them and that would constitute as some type of weapons training. I also have to assume that all Star Fleet officers are trained in combat and other military-type scenarios. In Episode 5, “The Enemy Within”, Sulu and some other crew members are trapped on a planet where the temperature is well below freezing. Captain Kirk tells him to remember his survival training, which indicates that Star Fleet trains their officers and doesn’t just send them up into space unprepared for this kind of thing.

However, more to your point on why we never see an actual marine/highly trained military unit on the Enterprise. My thought is that this has to do with Roddenbury’s utopian world view and is in keeping with the idealized world that is Trek. Also keep in mind that TOS came out in the late 60s, which was the height of the cold war. This is 20 years after the end of WWII and what had emerged was a completely new playing field for international relations. Huge wars were no longer an option, but rather everything was now handled through pain-staking diplomacy because the costs of wars were now too high. The world had become too independent and, colonialism was now an outdated model. Coming out of that era, I could see how one could possibly extrapolate in the future that we'd eventually get passed militaries/individual governments and in time we’d become a utopia.

With all that said, I don't think the Federation's goal has ever been to subjugate alien civilizations or to engage in wars because there is so little to be gained. Remember that in the Trek Universe technology has gotten to a point where there is no need for war or conquest because they have unlimited resources. The Federation can therefore use their technology and resources as leverage when negotiating with alien civilizations so as to negate any possibility of war ever breaking out. The only reason for war or conquest would be primarily out of either paranoia/xenophobia (Klingons) or national pride/ego (Cardassians). So with that logic, is there a need for a huge military complex? Granted this is incredibly idealistic, which is why I’d argue that TNG and especially Deep Space Nine seem to push this model a great deal, but as far as TOS is concerned, it would seem that science and military are considered to be one effective unit. Science Starships are armed with weapons and the crew is trained for combat situations if they arise, but there primary goal is science. I’d even bet that I mean there is probably a military reserve stored somewhere in the Federation for extreme situations.

So the Enterprise with a minimal amount of military training coupled with being charged with upholding Federation laws is what ultimately serves the purposes of humanity. This works because humanity's one goal now is expanding its knowledge of the unknown. This is my take on it at least. That or the writers didn't think about it or didn't feel like addressing it. I'm extrapolating this all from the six or seven episodes I've seen of TOS, various episodes of the other series, and the movies so I may go back and revise some of these opinions later.

What confuses me is that I remember in Voyager that at one point they (I forget who in the show) states that Voyager is primarily a science vessel. The distinction seemingly being that it was different from the Enterprise ships. Am I completely making this up or is there some distinction between Voyager and the Enterprises?

06-25-2012, 01:53 PM
From what I remember, most star ships are considered science/exploration in some form or another. The Enterprise leans more toward the exploration and diplomacy side, seeking new life and new civilizations, while Voyager was more of a "Let's study that nebula" kind of science ship.

Fun fact, Paris in Voyager was originally supposed to be the character the actor played from the TNG episode where Wesley and his classmates are responsible for the death of a student.

Deep Space Nine has the most focus on the military side of Starfleet, the Defiant is a ship built almost exclusively for combat. Then of course once they get into the Dominion War things get really military heavy. You should check out the episode "Siege of AR-558" Hudson. :up:

Whoa there Johnny. The issue more is that there isn't an appreciation for a diversity of tastes. It's like with Batman and how people think the only good batman is dark and brooding batman. When in fact there were and are multiple interpretations of the Bat. In this case, it has to do with the fact that the assumption that "gritty" is the best way, but it's merely a trend of our times.

There's nothing wrong with Hudson liking grittier* science fiction. It's only a problem when the market place offers only gritty science fiction. Different strokes for different folks as they say.

Miri and the Enemy Within just seem sort of silly to me. I liked the episodes, but when compare to the others... You stumble upon an Earth that is exactly the same as ours? Really?

...or if it was the dream one where Hawkeye sees the limbs floating in the pond, or the mockumentary one or the one where Margaret Houlihan keeps hitting on the guy who can't fuck her because of a war injury or later, if it was "It wasn't a ChIckEn!! http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y199/Wilhelm-Scream/HYPE/verysadgm0.gif It Was a BAby!! http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y199/Wilhelm-Scream/HYPE/verysadgm0.gif It Was A BaBy!! http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y199/Wilhelm-Scream/HYPE/verysadgm0.gif".

Laugh track or nor Laugh track, Wilhelm?

that too

My like for the dream episode, the mockumentary episode, the dick-blown-off episode and the "Hawkeye breaks down because a lady killed her own baby." episode would seem to indicate a preference for nor Laugh Track though.

Haha, totally. Related thing, in every fucking show, with expert wiring and knowledge of electronics, you can make it so that when the hind end of your ship gets hit, your monitors and panels in the bridge don't explode the fuck everywhere. Ideally, they'd just go blank. They need visual drama, so the fucking machines they use to monitor things, are somehow linked to the things they monitor, so when the engine blows up, the litle screen that monitors the condition of the engines, goes, "This is how the engines are right now: " and then blows the fuck up, frying the faces off crew members on multiple occasions. Haha, so retarded.

I've been thinking recently, what if after the current series of movies, they continued the alternate timeline into a series of TNG movies?


There wouldn't be a need to then go on to DS9 or Voyager (maybe cameos? Enterprise D stops at DS9?) cause re-doing the entire franchise would be stupid, but a more action/adventure oriented TNG could be cool.

Ralph Fiennes as Picard, Idris Elba as Worf, Michael Cera as Wesley...

The sets look great, looks like they're playing up the camp, could be fun to watch.

So because of Wilhelm's manifesto, I gave Voyager a chance. He was right, the characters are really compelling and the dynamics between them are super fun to watch. I'm digging it.

Nearing the end of Enterprise...it's sad 'cause the writing picked up tons near the end.
The way they explain why Klingons in Kirk/Spock Star Trek, have no ridges, was awesome. They made it feel like it was planned out that way in the 60's. heh

I think the problem was whoever cast it.

Star Trek - impossibly perfect cast
TNG - impossibly perfect cast
DS9 - impossibly perfect cast
Voyager - impossibly perfect cast

Enterprise - Jeffrey Combs as Shran was impossibly perfect. John Billingsley was impossibly perfect at being gross. That's about it.

Also it was too much a product of a freshly post-9/11 world. Every other episode is basically about the post-9/11 world.

But from the end of the Xindi thing to the 2nd to last episode, it was way better than I thought it'd be.

Last episode is the worst last episode ever, haha.

"Omg, we're saying goodbye to the crew of the first Enterprise. What's the best way to do it?"
"Well, Jonathan Frakes is practically obese now...maaybe...show him cooking on the holodeck, for half an hour? ...while, holograms of the Enterprise crew go on yer average Wednesday B story adventure?"
"YEAH!, but, the b story adventure is really boring. :("
"Oh, I know! Uhh...kill someone! :eek:"
"All RIGHT! :eek:"




Dude, speaking of the cast, I just saw an old Paramount memo from when they were casting TNG.

Yaphet Kotto was up for Picard.
Denise Crosby - Troi :huh:
Bunty Bailey - Tasha..........Who names their kid "Bunty"?
WESLEY SNIPES - Geordi?!
Brent Spiner was not even on the short list for Data. We would have no Spiner Femmes today.

And Beverly Crusher? Jenny Agutter...would have been so much hotter.
