Re: A Controversial Star Trek opinion

I agree with the top-heavy feel to the ship, but I think it has kind of grown on me over the years.

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

i Just finished going through Lower decks. I am not sure, though I think I may classify it as a guilty pleasure. I am not really invested in it, but it is holding my interest at the moment.

Re: The Expanse

Ok.. I want a Rocinante Model. Though I wonder if there is a decent sized one. I haven't really shopped around for it. I am liking season 5 so far. I am still waiting on the release of the 9th book. I will probably go back and re-read at some point, but will wait till after the current season finish...

Re: The Expanse

The biggest difference is the Language. The sci-fi one has to meet "broadcast" standards for language, but the streaming on Amazon they are much freer with it. And the swearing is actually one of the defining traits for one character, so losing it takes something away.

Re: The Expanse

I have really Enjoyed the expanse. If you can, be sure to watch the Amazon Prime cut instead of just the syfy one.
Season 5 is supposed to drop sometime this fall I believe.

I am also waiting on Book 9 to be released and that should finish the series, in book form.

I would have to agree that Cap would have ultimately sucummbed to the ring, and agree it would have happened more quickly than withodo. Though I would think that perhaps he would recognize the danger and like Gandalf refuse to take the ring Knowing he couldn't take it. Sam was able to give it up bec...

Re: I never noticed until now ...

Lucas has pretty much admitted he stole from practically everybody when making Star wars originally. So I don't find that surprising at all.

Re: Trailer - Wrinkle in Time

I haven't read this in over 20 years...and to be honest I don't remember it that well, But somehow I worry Disney is going to turn it into a "trippy" visual F/X spectacle and eviscerate the story.

Re: Should I assume that discussing the latest Orville ep ..

There are replies I would like to make to this but will refrain for now as it would first and foremost I believe violate the rules on Religious discourse because it would not be within the setting of Trek, and secondly, I am unable to reply privately so I doubt there is anything fruitful to be gaine...

Re: Should I assume that discussing the latest Orville ep ..

I would think that the episode could be discussed without a problem as long as care is taken to not attack actual religions.
But I can wait and see if there is an official ruling, of course, if you want to discuss off forum we can.
