My Battery is Low and it's Getting Dark...

The final words of Opportunity, as it's near 15 year mission came to an end... I felt like I needed to do this afterwards. I was gonna post it in Misc. Artwork but I thought, instead, to just post it here along with the quote in the subject so we could talk about Opportunity and it's mission, if we ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

I gotta tell ya: Super special crystal to regulate a reaction is at least analogous to a lens of some sort. Sure, that makes logical sense. But it's still handwaving spacemagic since dilithium doesn't exist. lol Fungus, on the other hand, tends to represent a very different kind of trip. :tomato: T...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Well, there went the argument. I have no response to you anymore. You didn't say anything in your last post in response to me Jace other than to be belligerent. So, yeah. This argument is pretty much done. But because I'm a glutten for punishment and have a keyboard and am not just on my cell, let'...

Re: The Orville

it's that much a pastiche of The Next Generation . Up to date with this season now and the last episode where the doc falls in love with the android was like a rehash of so many tng episodes. or the android human relationship Sums up my entire problem with the show. It's a fine show. But I've seen ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Picard's seemed to be some sort of variant, without the instantaneous effect a Vulcan neck pinch has. Seven possesses the enhanced strength I believe is necessary to deliver it. Odo would likely have the same. Data obviously does, along with computer-like precision (which likely aided Seven as well...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

I don't see the point of this anymore. I don't care what Gene would think. Gene hated my favorite Trek, Star Trek The Wrath of Khan. I don't lean on the Trope of thinking He was the final arbiter of Trek. So wait... your favorite Trek is the Trek where an insane Genetically Manipulated Superhuman a...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Okay, so agree with pretty much all JM has to say, Tilly's weight being especially egegious in the recent episode when she stopped for a time to argue with nothing and then still won a foot race. That's called Sprinting while everyone else is doing marathon speeds. But I wish to raise another point...

Opinion noted and respectfully, yet firmly , rejected. "Immensely intelligent and talented" ... check. Spock as a brother ... check. Can deliver a Vulcan neck pinch ... check. Is almost immediately given an X-O's slot after actions that should have kept her out of the service forevermore ... check....

Re: The Orville

Since I'm no longer the contentious curmudgeon I was historically, I'll not rise to the "old man" bait. :P Wasn't bait. Just a friendly jab since I haven't talked to you in ages. ;) I'm not exactly the fresh faced spring chicken I used to be. Well that's not precisely true... I don't age. Nor do I ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Jace, I cannot help but feel you are missing the point. There has been, at least until now, a connecting theme in all of the Trek shows. A theme of hope, exploration, and self-discovery. All of which are present in Discovery and to miss them, you'd have to go in TRYING to miss them. Ever since the ...
