Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

For the record, I've adjusted my settings so that I can no longer see Sirus' posts. I feel like this is a better solution for me personally, and ensures I won't be tempted to respond further for any reason.

The wait is agonizing. :evil:
For this AND Captain Marvel, which I also really hope to enjoy. And then Spiderman. And Hellboy. AND THERE ARE TOO MANY MOVIES.

Re: Is anyone role playing?

I was running a sponsored livestream game of D&D 5e through half of last year, guested at Comic Con, etc. But that fell apart. I've done some one-shots and such since. Now I'm busying myself writing for 5e until I get into another game which I may not bother with until after I move... In the meantim...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Wouldn't it be nice if some people could just hate in silence instead of condemning everyone else to experience their hatred too? And when given the chance to take the out just took it instead of doubling down and hating harder and harder despite being proven wrong time and time again, despite evide...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Jace, I'm done with you. You never got started since I shut you down immediately anyway. This is getting to the point where I can see you are so entrenched in your view that it will do no good to argue. Pot. Kettle. BLACK. And again, this wasn't an argument. But it's so cute that you think you had ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Long story short, all the best Starfleet officers are Lawful Good and if you can't see a Paladin doing it, your main character/CO sure as fuck shouldn't. You look at Lawful Good as some kind of marker of perfection. It's not. It means that you'll do what's right, but only within the bounds of the l...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Oh, two things I DO want to address directly that I lost before and am having to rewrite now... Star Trek came out in an era when all the shows were dark and brutal. It came out in an era of racial tension and strife. No. The TV back then was decisively white washed and largely inoffensive. So much ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

I had written a VERY long reply to Sirus but apparently I took too damn long to write it since I was doing other things and the forum lost it all on me so I'm a bit annoyed right now.... The highlights: Sirus, your views of Star Trek are so far off the mark, I'm not really sure we're watching the sa...

Re: All things considered ...

Yep. Always did. Still always really liked the character, though.

But I get the feeling that pomposity and an "asshole-ish" demeanor would be common among the Trill.

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Also, I have now watched all of season one. My quick review is: I love this show! Amen! My view is that a storytelling universe which has been around for more than fifty years has to adapt to the time it is now presented just as Dr. Who and Marvel have done. Attempting to look exactly as it did and...

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...
