thatguyoverthere70: Ishkur: thatguyoverthere70: we are living in a real Star Trek golden age right now.

By this logic we are also living in a Star Wars golden age right now.

More != better.

Who knows? Fans of Star Wars might actually be enjoying the Mandalorian and might be happy to have quality Star Wars content instead of nothing at all.

There were fans of TOS that didn't like TNG, TNG fans that didn't like DS9, ect. all the way down the line. I'm not a fan of the current shows (haven't seen Lower Decks yet), but it doesn't stop me from acknowledging that the franchise is offering new content like never before. For a fan of a franchise, getting a lot of new content means that the franchise is both popular and successful. Usually that's considered a positive thing, but not for old school trekkies like ourselves who despise anything new and came right out of the gate hating Discovery just because it's on a paid streaming service. Do you remember the days when there were no Star Trek shows on the air and the film franchise was stalled out completely and the whole franchise it looked like it was totally out of gas? For a trekkie back then, the thought of having three successful Star Trek shows on at the same time would have been almost unimaginable.

Like it or not, this Trek is speaking to the current generation like the other series did to their generations. Audiences are enjoying the shows and the producers are making money. But that won't stop old, crabby trekkies like me and you from complaining that since current Star Trek isn't exactly how we picture it in our minds, it's all now complete garbage.

The late, great Dwayne McDuffie once wrote that he was eating breakfast in a Hollywood area restaurant and he barely notices out of the corner of his eye a black dad with a couple of young sons at a nearby table, until the sons started getting too rowdy.

The dad says, "You will sit down! You will eat! You will neither rip, nor run."

The voice had so much authority that, as Dwayne tells it, it reached out beyond their table and ensnared him in its spell. He fearfully looked over, and sure enough, the dad was none other than Avery Brooks. There was so much sheer authority in his voice that Dwayne was afraid to get up and leave afterwards.

"I'm still in the restaurant," he closed.

ReaverZ: fallingcow: My problem's mostly that they're bad, not that they're different.

So far in each show, none of them have had a consistent idea of what the show is about or tone. Then Disco and Picard recycled them same rise of the machine plot, though with different twists. I have no clue what they were thinking in Lower Decks.

Disco S2 was way more watchable and it looks like S2 of Lower Decks may go the same way, by rewriting the personalities of their main characters.

It looks like the new shows were made by casual watchers of Trek. Versus The Mandalorian was made by fans, who made something new in the SW world.


I'm shocked NuTrek doesn't have a Baby Spawk yet, since Star Wars got so much play off of an alien baby with big pointy ears.

demonfaerie: dywed88: demonfaerie: dywed88: demonfaerie: dywed88: demonfaerie: clkeagle: demonfaerie: Picard did such a shiat job at explaining the regression of the Federation that I just do not give a shiat about that show anymore. I also did not like how Picard was the only person trying to help Romulans, but fail to ignore that Spock was trying to save the planet.

Your first point explains your second point. Spock was lost, then the synth rebellion happened... then nobody but Picard was willing to stick their necks out for the Romulans. Had Spock still been around, he would have been influential enough to turn the tide. Picard was obviously respected, but didn't have the same clout.

...at least I think. As you said, they didn't do very well in explaining how the Federation really changed between Voyager's return and the post-Synth rebellion world.

They didn't brought up Spock though, and if they did it was poorly done. Spock in this timeline sacrificed himself to try to save Romulus. Even thought he did not succeed in saving the planet, he did go out trying. You think his death would not be in vain. I can't picture the Federation or Vulcan be like opps Spock failed, ok byeeee. Federation ships or even Starfleet ships should not be that thinned out where they could not handle the attack on Mars, and help evacuate Romulus. From what I can remember from the 2009 Star Trek movie, when Spock failed with the red matter the planet blew up. Spock should still be alive while Picard was helping to evacuate Romulus. It also does not make sense that the gigantic Romulan Star Empire would be so weak it could not help all the people on their main planet. Not to mention relocating its people.

During TNG and Voyager they were giving rights to androids and holograms. Why would they just start creating androids to use as basically slave labor, and treat them like shiat. Picard does not take place that far into the future from Voyager to turn the Federation into such a bigoted system where ...

CzarChasm: --Sisko is a very interesting character. If you (re)watch DS9, note that he fights like a Klingon.  He has a lot of rage and undealt-with emotion from his wife dying, and there is very little difference between alt.universe.Sisko and "our" Sisko - except our Sisko is Captain of a space station instead of a ship.  And he radiates authority.

--And I don't think Brooks is crazy, he might have been high during the doc with Shatner but he's very "jazz" inspired.  He played the villain to near perfection in the "Our Man Bashir" episode.  Come to think of it, he kind of reminds me of Commander Vimes in the Pratchett universe (played by Hugh Jackman in my headcanon.)  A decent man suppressing powerful emotions.

demonfaerie: I still can't picture that. There was a nice peace treaty with Romulus, and the Klingons were still their allies. There was an urgency to go back to normal, but not to the point to make androids for slave labor. Data was still alive at the time, he and Picard would condemn it. Robots make much more sense to do hard labor tasks, and besides they were using holograms to do labor. It was shown in Voyager, and those holograms were going to fight for rights.


I think that what's great about that series is that it left the viewer hungry for more.  It's interesting to think about where the story goes from there--does the alliance hold together without the threat of a common enemy?  Does the secret from "In the Pale Moonlight" ever get leaked to the Romulans?  Are the Klingons ready to go back to peaceful relations with the Federation, or would they decide to attack the weakened Cardassian Union?  Is there any sort of Marshall Plan to rebuild the planets ravaged by the war?  Does a Cold War develop among the various factions?

The answer is: None of it.

Only televised stuff is canon. Everything books, comics, etc... is glorified fan fiction.

Because it's a bullshiat site that either just makes stuff up for clicks - they literally just make things up to get clickable headlines - or their "sources" are fringe Youtubers with 17 views per video, i.e. nobodies with as much credibility as the average Farker.

It's a garbage fake news site widely known to be a garbage fake news site, and I can only guess that the only reason they still keep showing up on Fark is that their headlines generate a lot of comment traffic or someone on staff has a connection there.

I'm working my way through DS9 for the first time right now and I've been a fan of Avery Brooks for many years (probably since he was Hawk on Spenser for Hire when I was a kid). DS9 seemed to really take off when he stopped playing nerdy Starfleet guy and went back to being is usual badass self--shaved head and goatee. Hell, I was surprised he didn't have a big, chrome phaser. He is a super chill hardass in whatever role he takes.

That said, can also be a terrifically hammy over-actor. I get that it probably comes from working on the stage most of his life, but man, some of his soliloquies are so stilted and awkward to listen to. Whenever he has more than four sentences or a speech to rally the troops, it sounds so clumsy. That always knocks me out of the moment and breaks the fourth wall without intentionally doing it.

Love Avery Brooks. Enjoy the Sisko character. But I'm not sure he was so amazing that we need more. This feels more like a junior exec at CBS said, "Hey, if they can do "Picard" with old man Picard, let's do "Sisko" with old man Sisko!" and nobody told him it was a bad idea.
