One thing I’ve learned with comics is never to judge a story like this until it’s finished, because the last two issues of a miniseries usually tell you what the whole thing was for, and what the ugly things you just read actually meant. And I trust Tom King to give us a good payoff at the end.

How can you have the virtues of Starfleet without conflict to challenge it? That’s really what the first season was about building up, and what the second season was about sticking to. The whole first season of Discovery was about Starfleet itself trying to find its way in a time of total war, and what it would take - Read more

I’d like to see something taking used cars on the road into account. What’s the average age of a car on the road, and how has the total number of cars fared from year to year? Read more

She should just go testify and roll over on Assange with anything she knows. She shouldn’t suffer to protect his ass.

Pertty sure what killed Yelchin was a design failure with those stupid electronic pseudo-shifter deals they decided to go with. Something about the software and how many times you clicked it into park, etc.

It’s childish and simplistic, but I think it really is the only thing he’s actually good at. Mix enough gold glitter into it, and I guess you can convince people that covering the walls with your name like Julian Assange covering them with his own feces is somehow fancier than the other guy.

Don’t wait. You’ve got 3 seasons to get through. As much as you might think it better to binge on the whole thing, watching it now on Amazon makes it more likely FOR more of the whole thing to happen. Plus, then you’ll avoid the eventual spoilers when [redacted] dies.

Oh, the Eon17-x AKA “Just Another Rebadged Clevo”? I really wish Gizmodo would stop pretending Origin was anything other than a rebadger that picks the specs.

We’ll never get this in a movie, but daaaaaaaamn. I want to see The Rock play that particular take on Black Adam.

This episode actually cleared up one huge thing that kinda bothered me at times. If Starfleet could screw around with time travel in a way that sometimes came across as casual - why wouldn’t their often mortal enemies? Read more

My understanding of the treknobabble is that basically the data is so huge it took up all the space the computer had available. Airiam was only able to fit it into her head because it required her to delete or offload her own memories, and her human brain was still a more effective storage medium than anything they Read more

I think we’re at about ... seven or eight years pre-TOS at this point since the Klingon war, and Discovery’s little mirror universe detour put them ahead six months on top of what we saw on screen. I think a version of Scotty that hadn’t quite made Lieutenant yet would be pretty reasonable. And we know he’s *good*, so Read more

That would be during the first trip to Talos IV, but the Enterprise just had a major repair take place at the end of that five year mission, so it’s a reasonable assumption that they went and refreshed the bridge while they were repairing the computer.

And that’s a shame too, because if you’ve never driven VW’s big attempt at going full luxury you’ve missed out on something special in life, something that the whole world suffers for not having been able to keep alive longer than it did. Read more

I have a sneaking suspicion that Tesla’s iron grip on serviceability for their cars is going to make 25 years kind of a pipe dream. Also, in 5 years every piece of silicon in the thing is going to be ridiculously obsolete, so at 25 you’ll be driving around in the equivalent of a Motorola StarTac.

The A5 lost me at “glommed a tablet onto the dash” interior styling.

Absolutely my favorite Borderlands character. And honestly, favorite game (not) in the series.
