that is in no way the point of them! but it's not really important for this thread to lurch down that road

Yeah in terms of 'point' it's like that thing where television programs basically exist to fill time between commercials.

Bit spoilery about guest stars:

One is not surprising, the other... not exactly leftfield, but pretty close (centerfield).

Curious about the Vulcan ninjas though!

not gonna lie, i’m psyched

i just watched all of discovery, which other than some ploddingly dubious klingon-scheming scenes and a slightly overextended season 2 finale, was hella dope

so i am down for this. despite what people say about abramsification and greater proximity to star wars fitey fite of late, it seems like they now know how to make short-form seasons play to their strengths.

and gawd if there's one thing i don't miss from the enterprise- or pre-enterprise-era shows (not sure how far back it goes) it's the CORNINESS, glad someone scared the nerds out of thinking that was ever a good idea

Trailer makes it look a little plot-heavy - like something they just plugged Picard into... but I’m still curious

why was Data in a drawer?

there was no space in the garage

Tribute to Agent 13 on Get Smart, maybe?

God knows I watched more GS than TNG

can't wait for this. no i'm not going to subscribe to cbs all access, this will be pirateland for me.

I'm cautiously optimistic. The main positive about this so far is that fucking Nemesis won't be the last story featuring Picard and co any more. And it can't possibly be worse than that.

Duane Barry, Sunday, 21 July 2019 17:57 (four weeks ago) link

The real answer, and lol this is probably the first time someone bothered to write this ever, but NEMESIS SPOILER:

That isn't Data, but a prototype android. Data dies in Nemesis.

Coelacanth Green (Leee), Sunday, 21 July 2019 18:00 (four weeks ago) link

Oops, that is Data.

Coelacanth Green (Leee), Sunday, 21 July 2019 18:38 (four weeks ago) link

Do you think Data will still have the skunk hair from the TNG finale? They cleverly didn't show the top of his head.

I see that Bee decks still exist in the 24rd century. In TNG they used Kem decks, probably because they looked sci-fi-y.

adam the (abanana), Sunday, 21 July 2019 20:57 (four weeks ago) link

Ive seen Nemesis and I dont recall Data dying in it, which says everything about how engaged I was with the plot at the time I guess, lol.

Did a bit of a squee when 7 popped up in trailer.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 22 July 2019 03:17 (four weeks ago) link

I had Nemesis and First Contact confused, Data sacrificing his human skin in the latter. Zero memory of the Nemesis plot aside from Romulans hellbent on revenge.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Monday, 22 July 2019 03:30 (four weeks ago) link

Spoiler alert on the second worst Star Trek movie I guess

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Monday, 22 July 2019 03:30 (four weeks ago) link

my worst is generations, followed by nemesis, what's yours?

adam the (abanana), Monday, 22 July 2019 06:01 (four weeks ago) link

The Undiscovered Country followed by Nemesis

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Monday, 22 July 2019 06:08 (four weeks ago) link

Oops, the Undiscovered Country is great, I mean Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is the worst

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Monday, 22 July 2019 06:09 (four weeks ago) link

lmao at this early tom hardy eccentricity from the nemesis wiki

Tom Hardy made his only appearance in the Star Trek franchise as Praetor Shinzon, the leader of the Romulan people. Baird and Berman had been looking for someone who resembled Patrick Stewart but aged about 25 years younger; at one point they had considered Jude Law. Baird specifically wanted an unknown actor, and Hardy auditioned by tape after Stewart asked Hardy's agent if they thought any of their clients were suitable for the role. Hardy was filming Simon: An English Legionnaire in Morocco at the time,[4] and decided against using the requested piece for the audition. Instead he came into the possession of a full script for Nemesis and used a different part of the script, and filmed it partly nude.[5] He was flown to Los Angeles to do a screen test with Stewart, and Hardy later described his performance there as "appalling".

Is no one else unnerved by the notion of Picard keeping Data in a suitcase under his bed all these years

where else would one keep one's positronic fleshlight

i regret this

This is why you don't throw a gauntlet down in my presence, u see.

Disco, Lower Decks cartoon, and Picard summary from SDCC:

Coelacanth Green (Leee), Monday, 22 July 2019 21:42 (four weeks ago) link

Lower Decks sounds a little like Red Shirts: The Animated Series.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Monday, 22 July 2019 22:03 (four weeks ago) link

Trailer breakdown, if you're inclined:

Mild spoiler but you won't believe how they have a 'so-and-so days since an accident' workplace humor style joke in here.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 22 July 2019 22:08 (four weeks ago) link

just finished the dvd box of TOS and am watching the little extras on the last disk

didn't know this about Scotty: Landed on Juno Beach on D-Day as a member of the Royal Canadian Artillery... He was hit by four bullets to the leg, his middle finger of his right hand was shot off, and a bullet struck his chest. His life was saved when that hit a silver cigarette case which had been given to him by his brother.

meanwhile, george takai was in an american internment camp.

Doohan’s son posted a nice thread about this on the anniversary this year.

Artillery Lt. Doohan was one of 14,000 Canadian soldiers who stormed the beach. He once said they were more afraid of drowning than the actual battle. He led his men across an anti-tank mine field. Fortunately none exploded as the men weren’t heavy enough to activate them...

Some have asked if Dad visited Normandy after #DDay. He made a trip back in 1984...a very emotional day.

I just rewatched Star Trek VI, and utterly forgot the arc of Kim Cattrall's role.

Picard's getting most of the hype right now, but I'm also really looking forward to Lower Decks!
