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

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

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... pic.twitter.com/rOki0O0cuQ

Some have asked if Dad visited Normandy after #DDay. He made a trip back in 1984...a very emotional day. pic.twitter.com/v4N2IwA7ow

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!

I hope they give it the classic Rodenberry nuance.

Good timing by the Horror Channel to run this Star Trek episode about a mysterious illness running rampant on the Enterprise - spread by touch. I think we could all do with one of these suits Spock is wearing.

Kirk's got it now - or is he just acting? 'Just' acting, it's Shatner, LOL.

McCoy and Scotty the unlikely heroes as Spock went through some sort of Oedipal crisis and Kirk lost it for all of two (very intense) minutes.

three weeks pass...

Currently showing the episode which introduced the character of Khan - which I'd never seen before, in fact there's been a few I hadn't seen before, which surprises me. So it was news to me that:

1. Khan is from 20th century Earth.

2. He was involved in a 'eugenics war' on Earth in... 1993!

3. He's Indian - which explains the name Khan, I thought it was just LOL Star Trek writers using a name that sounded like a 'science fiction' name. He is, however, described as Sikh when Khan is a Muslim name.

All of which goes to prove I am no Trekkie, I suppose.

Plus what a fucking howler of a blunder by Kirk at the end of the episode.

The Corbynite Maneuver (Tom D.), Monday, 27 April 2020 10:00 (three months ago) link

An Indian played by a Mexican! Close enough for 1960s TV I guess.

archangel's thunderpants (Matt #2), Monday, 27 April 2020 12:28 (three months ago) link

a mysterious illness running rampant on the Enterprise

actually 22% of all star trek episodes across all series have infection plots

IIRC he was named after Gene Roddenberry's old army pal or something like that?

The synopsis for this morning's Star Trek episode:

"McCoy becomes deranged and changes the past. Can guest star Joan Collins help?"

Get your popcorn out.

Kim Noonien Singh, Roddenberry used the name in an attempt to get in touch with him, which obviously failed as he tried again in TNG with Noonien Soong.

Considered to be possibly the best episode of the original series.
