Yeah, at the end of the episode where Spock is clean-shaven, you can instantly see why they had him in a beard in the first place — because Ethan Peck is jarringly un-Spock-like, without the facial hair.
Honestly this is pretty fantastic explanation.
How are dick and fart jokes “more faithful to the original vision of Star Trek”?
Look, behind every panel is the raw feed for the replicators. It’s nano-particle protomatter that can be assembled into whatever molecular pattern is needed. It’s unstable in this form, and when the feed buffer is breached with an explosive charge, the protomatter snaps to a simple stable form of silicates.
Overall, it’s a small complaint because it’s not something you’re going to do frequently, once maybe, if at all, but actually doing it and getting everything to match is a nightmarish task because of how the menu is split. I thought it was pretty clear...
What a season finale! I said it before, I’ll say it again, I really want to see a series about the five year mission of the U.S.S. Enterprise under Captain Pike and his crew.
In a weird way, I think the show subverted expectations by not subverting expectations. I think there’s a notion during this here golden age of television that a season finale has to provide some big twist or cliff hanger or unexpected moment, and I kinda like Discovery saying “nah” and just telling the story they’ve…
I’m a huge fan of both. They’re very different shows that scratch very different itches for me, and it makes me sad when people pit them against each other with the implication that no one is allowed to enjoy both.
So, Starfleet learns nothing from this AI debacle (and remembers nothing about it), later decides to turn over a starship to AI (the M5 in “The Ultimate Computer”) to go through a similar disaster? I’m not saying Disco hasn’t gotten better and didn’t do a good job with the story, but why do they constantly have to…
The Discovery finale with all its explosions and pew pew lasers makes me nostalgic for TNG when Picard would save the day by having discussions around a boardroom conference table.
One thing that I forgot to mention, that I truly loved! And for me to saw that word is remarkable in and of itself. Was the worm hole effect taken right from TMP, that was a brilliant nod to the movie franchise! I’m sure it’s already been mentioned but I woke up today remembering I had forgotten to mention it.
“or most of its crew (namely Michael) ever again, on penalty of treason.”
oh my sh*ttle! I totally had not thought about Calypso in months. Now you’ve given me something to think about. Going to have to rewatch that one now.
I saw my first episode of Star Trek in 1967 and I remember it filling 7-year-old me with wonder and joy. I felt exactly the same tonight as I watched Spock walk onto the bridge in his blue tunic. I’m all in.
I’m very excited for a season 3 set an additional 900 years in the future, a time period we haven’t seen yet, except briefly in the “Calypso” Short Trek episode.
The gravity shifting sequence in the corridor was really cool.
My secondhand Kubrick was a git story:
PTA - prestige films
Maybe George Lucas had a good script, but imo he poorly executed it on to the screen.
List of reasons?
The actors received partial scripts. So they never got a full vision of the story or their characters motivations. This the fault of Lucas who wanted the movie to be as secret as possible. Even for the actors.
You know this car would look like the Supra concept car if it didn’t have the big grill.
