(StarDate)   One hundred years ago Max Wolf discovered Wolf 359. This star takes a century to emit the visible light our Sun emits in just one day and is a great place to wipe out 39 Starfleet ships and 11,000 Starfleet personnel in about ten minutes   ( stardate.org) divider line

Small words from a small Farker, trying to attack what it doesn't understand.

Cleans stainless steel sinks wonderfully.

At the time of its discovery, in fact, Wolf 359 was the most feeble star known.

Since then, it's been eclipsed by reality TV "stars."

Between Wolf 359 and the Chin'toka System, Starfleet is right farked.

There's a Farker with that handle. IIRC, his avatar is a line drawing of that.

Many of the named stars/systems not inhabited by intelligent aliens in Star Trek are named after real named systems.

Some nerd you are.  Can't even recognize one of the closest stars.

Next you'll tell me that you thought they made up Lalande 21185 and Barnards Star.

So the Prophets knew Sisko would be there.... they practically murdered his wife!  Jerk worm hole entities.

They made up Luhman 16 and WISE 0855−0714. Nobody ever heard of them ten years ago.

So that also means they didn't make up the Mirror Universe. I wonder what your version is like there? ;)

TNG took many inspirations from the 60s series THE OUTER LIMITS, including the episode titled "WOLF 359."

I wouldn't know, as the Star Trek universe consists solely of TOS, and the films with the original TOS cast.  Anything else isn't Star Trek, so it doesn't actually matter.

pacified: So the Prophets knew Sisko would be there.


In a non linear time matter they did. All they needed to do was keep Saratoga together long enough for Sisko to escape. Jennifer wasn't important. Jake got lucky.

In Star Trek: Online, you can travel to Wolf 359, and see the memorial to the battle.

The game is average at best, but god damn do they respect the canon.

The animated series actually used some scripts that were written for a proposed revival of the show, so some of those episodes are really at the level of TOS.

I'll remind you that TOS contains an episode where Kirk passionately recites the preamble of the constitution that somehow is a sacred text to cave people on another planet.

"the level of TOS" is not necessarily a high bar.

We are watching DS9 Season Three with our teenager, who knows nothing of the glory that is Nana Visitor's backside. T'pol might work on a bridge too far.
