    Star Trek: TNG Appreciation Thread

    This is really the problem of the trend of only making shows with one long running story. Even Season 1 of TNG had a couple of good episodes, and with episodic story telling, you can skip any that don’t grab you and still have no problem enjoying other ones. With TOS you could watch any...

    Star Trek: Picard

    I’ve said this about other franchises before, but it definitely applies here: If you’re out on a limb, creating something new and blazing a new path building a world while the powers that be barely give you any budget or resources at all because you’re too much of a risk: I will give you a TON...

    ANOVOS picks up the high-end Star Wars Costuming License!

    not as believable as the last time they posted this claim, but definitely more believable than the time before that. Still, nothing beats the time before that one, but we were all a lot younger then, and more full of hope.

    That's not what he said. Read it a second time.

    Star Trek: Picard

    It's not just the Inner Light (although how can anyone forget one of the best episodes), Picard going from someone uncomfortable around kids and families to gradually become really good at dealing with kids even completely heartbroken when Rene dies is one of the subplots of the whole series...

    Star Trek: Picard

    It's 2020. Eventually they will do what they always do when they make a huge mess out of a franchise. Reboot.

    Star Trek: Picard

    This thread made me realize that now the number of Trek series I dislike outnumber the ones I like. Technically I suppose that means I can't really qualify as a Trekkie anymore. Feels weird. I can honestly say I never saw that coming.

    Fantasy Island (Post-release)

    This inspired me to rewatch the original. Haven't seen it since I was a kid. I just watched the pilot and it's definitely not like I remembered. In fact, this reboot is actually not as far off as you might think. It's basically a horror show made for TV. In the first episode there's three...

    Savi’s Workshop sabers - worth the $199?

    Thanks! Good info. I'm already signed up to go get mine in April. Gonna spend some time between now and then deciding which to get (and likely changing my mind 20 or 30 times).

    Things you're tired of seeing in movies

    high school/college nerds in movies and TV can fix anything electronic and hack into (and completely take over) any computer, audio, or video system. Also they are master level experts at video editing, graphic design, coding, and welding. But they cannot change a tire. And they play lots of...

    Star Trek: Picard

    you don't want to get into it, but you will, at great length, before washing your hands of it and moving on? Not one word of what you said countered my point. Yes, they got to keep it. Forever. Until the family line dies out, unless he chooses an heir, which he might. It's all the bad of...

    Star Trek: Picard

    They also told Mark Twain that smoking had been abolished. Twain considered it a reasonable trade off for abolishing poverty. But I could overlook that easy enough. Sometimes it's best not to get TOO bogged down by the past, especially in a franchise with this much content. DS9 had a hard...

    Star Trek: Picard

    The Tea thing happens often in long running shows. A writer or actor will give a character a specific trait that makes them feel more human. Like, he prefers watered martinis, or she likes to keep the apartment tidy. A decade and ten different writers later and its morphed into "He can't drink...
