"brand new technology referred to as old and strange" take a shot

if you commit a crime and are then cryogenically frozen or experience time dilation, does the statute of limitations count only the years as you experienced them, or does it count the longer period that the state has experienced?

the Kirk-Spock relationship makes me think Kirk has, on several occasions, said "I don't hate Vulcanians, one of my best friends is a Vulcanian!"

amazing how much the architecture of this distant planet in the 2260s looks like architecture of the 1960s earth

me at the beginning of the first season: Kirk doesn't speak strangely, idk what the big deal is

me toward the end: it seems his,,, manner of speaking. Changes, throughout the course of the show. growing, more unusual, as, time, passes

wait I'm sorry was the giant green hand spaceship in steven universe a REFERENCE??

to be clear, my issue with this isn't "lol he still believes in Gᴏᴅ" but rather "unless there have been several entire genocides, humanity would still have a wide array of gods"

I, for one, could go for a god or three right about now

I wonder if I would notice the undetailed sets and dated practical effects as much if I were to watch it with some emulation of a period CRT. Like did them remastering from the original film actually make it look worse?

update: if anyone else wants one, I'm selling. $1 per pallet.

is there a plot reason for why klingons don't look any different than humans in the original series? or is it just that they hadn't thought of the whole forehead ridge thing yet?

the 20s were as much a nostalgia trip when this was made as the 80s are now 😳

why do I feel like kirk doing a 20s gangster voice sounds like trump

kirk's cadence when he's feeding someone a line, just complete off the cuff lies with perfect confidence, is exactly the same as trump when he's doing the same (which is usually)

this episode, the enterprise comes to a planet where the cold war was fought and won by a side kirk compares to earth """asiatics""". the analog to americans became """savages""" analogized to native americans, but still worshiping the american flag with the same cultish pledge

like, adjusting the racism baseline to 1968 levels, it's definitely making an argument against racism, and the corruption of american civil religion (a term introduced irl just a couple years earlier). that baseline is just a bit of a culture shock though

but yeah, tell me again how star trek only became political recently lol

need an astrobiologist to tell me if it's even remotely plausible for two humanoids of entirely unconnected evolutionary origins to have a child together

this show really likes to make children creepy huh


a solid third of star trek episodes are "what if woman sexy, but too much"

how dare this show not predict the events of another show made a half century later 😡

yever get that thing, where your,, internal, monologue,, acquires the, mannerisms, of a character, on a tv show you're watching? let's just say it's, probably for the best, that I'm almost done, with the original series

kirk: bones, I need you to supervise the students taking this standardized test

mccoy: dammit, jim, I'm a doctor not a proctor

kirk out here being a galactic slut but all I have to cuddle is my weighted blanket 😣

why does scotty's formal uniform include plaid and a kilt, but nobody else has any difference in their uniform. sure spock is from an entirely different planet, but scotland, why that's a whole nother place altogether

wouldn't be scifi without a tg bodyswap episode

none of the original movies are on paramount plus, so on to the next generation

picard running a simulation of being a 1940s private investigator, which I guess makes him a holodick

I find wesley grating and I don't really know why


the "reception" section on his wikipedia page explains it lol

holodecks are really very recklessly designed. like the engineers ought to be losing their licenses over this

Elimination: no holodeck

Substitution: AR rather than VR so intercom & alerts can be seen/heard

Engineering: automatic hard power cut in the event of red alert or user injury

Administrative: attendant on duty outside whenever in use

PPE: users wear emergency stop button/radio

there should never be any way for someone to be in a holodeck when an abandon ship order is given without knowing it's been given. and do they really not muster on evacuation and make sure everyone is accounted for?

tfw your superluminal interstellar flagship has worse emergency planning than a carnival cruise

they really killed off yar and not wesley? wtf

apparently tv stops being a thing in the 2040s. if they mean broadcast instead of streaming,, they're not wrong

a kid is conceived, born, grows up a bit, and dies, all within one episode, and that's still a deeper and more interesting character than wesley

wish I could learn multiple sign languages in a few minutes like Data. maybe I'll be stable enough someday to at least go back to classes and learn just the one, the old fashioned way

🎶 geordie and data in the moooorning 🎶

pff what I'm not crying at the episode putting Data on trial to see if he's a person you're crying shut up

picard reciting shakespeare to pull one over on a ferengi lol this show is great

the separable saucer section seems to be an awful lot of engineering and potential problems for something they use like twice

I'm glad they retroactively explained the yar-data ship (yarta? datyar?) that got just like dropped in without any detail one episode

troi looked in a mirror and saw her own face but not herself, and it took me a solid minute to figure out why she screamed before remembering that the cis don't regularly experience that

tfw you experience eldritch existential scifi horror so often you don't even notice it anymore

muhhhh geordie simulated a real person with the holodeck and is now meeting her for real and it is so creepy and uncomfortable I hate this
