Show older

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

where is the spin off series of vash and q doing space archaeology

so far I def prefer discovery's treatment of trill symbionts over tng's. I miss adira

oh what in the queerbaiting fuck is the ending to this episode

"I cut you out of your old alien body and sewed you into the body of my crewmate, that was no big deal we can still snog, but sewing you into an alien *woman*, that's just too weird"

data 100% has emotions he just knows where they come from better than biobrains and thinks that makes them not feelings

why does worf's parenting seem so familiar 🤔

what exactly is a red alert? like what actions are taken when it is called? because it doesn't seem to include putting shields up, redirecting non-essential power, arming phasers, or even bridge crew being called to their stations


this next episode is about forgotten memories and flashbacks, right after one about a kid who shuts off all his emotions to deal with trauma. nothing resonating here ha ha.

why is denying someone asylum from a eugenicist human society even on the table? like I thought eugenics was banned to begin with, and I don't see how the prime directive applies even if it does affect the society's planned breeding

"what about the rights of the eugenicists to commit eugenics? don't we have to protect diversity by protecting this artificially homogenized society?"

I am not at all surprised to learn that riker is from alaska

and now picard is defending worf wanting to unalive because of paralysis because the assistive tech would be so ~humiliating~. at least the "eugenics is okay, actually" episode gave geordie the chance to be rightly indignant at his crewmates showing their whole ass like this

riker's def gonna fuck this agender alien isn't he

is this episode where the cis get their weird idea that trans advocates want a world where everyone is exactly the same without gender?

turns out this forced genderless society is an allegory for our forced gendered society, and not just an arbitrary what if. the alien riker is now snogging is a trans woman. was not expecting to see trans allyship on this show, cuz 90s, and no I'm not crying you're crying

this episode is almost as old as I am where has this been all my life 😭

I like time loop episodes because they present the unachievable fantasy of being able to figure out the right things to say and do in apparent real time

I'm sure it's just "universal translator does codecs" but I really want there to be a Reason that video comms can work at first contact

maybe I've been watching too much star trek (okay I definitely have but that's not the point) but I'm getting very sci-fi vibes from my osdd stuff and it's uhhhhh interesting

was gonna say it would make for a good episode or character arc but then I remembered that's just Adira lol

geordie has once again developed a parasocial relationship with someone he is now meeting her in person 😬

everyone hates this party host for talking too much, so they encouraged data to emulate him so they could avoid the host. and now data and the host are infodumping (the crew are calling it small talk but it's def not that) with each other and it's honestly great?

I think paramount plus might be the buggiest streaming service I've ever used. it has suddenly decided, halfway through a season, to stretch the 4:3 video instead of letterboxing

the concept of a surprise party is so utterly foreign to me. like "here's an obligation you couldn't consent to or keep your calendar free for you're welcome!" like if I hadn't been a part of one once I would think they were just one of those weird unrealistic TV things

Show newer

homomisia mention 

@else "Fun" fact: In the original script that alien turned out to be a man. But oh no can't explicitly confirm Riker being bi, so they had to rewrite them to a woman …
