I CAN FOLLOW UP
>>3689715oh come on...
>>3689738Imagine being fired for this soundtrack, literally the best soundtrack in the entire series
>>3689772Regeneration was a really good episode
>>3689736THIS IS MAGA COUNTRY
>>3689701love that episode
>>3689701>It's a G'Kar episode
>>3689701>when two people talking to each other has more tension than ships exploding every five secondsDiscovery was a mistake.
>>3689691this is pretty cute
Was this the first good episode of tng?
>>3689722episodes like that were what made ds9 my favorite of all the trek shows
>>3689686>This feels wrong somehow.
>>3689713that captain DID NOTHING WRONG.
>>3693395the cardassians deserved it
>>3689713I've seen this episode several times and it just now dawned on me that the guy that plays Maxwell is the warden in The Shawshank Redemption.
>>3693459Yeah he's been in a ton of movies
so this thread has got me thinking it's time to dive into Star Trek, what's required watching and what should I avoid at all cost?
>>3691333I love the fact it's just as believable.
>>3694708TOS is campy, but funTNG has some good shit, but also some snoozers.DS9 has Quark and Quark is fucking awesomeI haven't gone through Voyager properly yet (just caught episodes back in ye old cable network days), but I've heard Janeway is wildly inconsistent and insaneENT seems to go either way.DSC and Picard aren't star trek anymore
>>3689744what a smartassnobody in the entire world thinks the star trek movies are in the same canon as the series
>>3694708TNG is what people think of when you say Star Trek, or at least they should.Don't bother with the new series.
>>3691004The writers were a mistake.If someone wanted to write like it's TNG, Disco would've been more tolerable.Unfortunately they were given that one guy who never wrote a good episode, and a bad narrative to push.
>>3691339Good enough to make a mirror version of it where he did get copied.
>>3691182Drunk russians with bolt actions could hit stukas, how can a starship not?
>>3689708my god...i havent seen this in years...
>>3689732>somebody...get this...jap faggot...of my damn bridge
>>3689738>>3689928Had to look that up because I'd never heard of that. Taken from Memory Alpha;>Despite the success of his work, Jones was fired from the crew of TNG under controversial circumstances near the end of the fourth season. His firing was supposedly because his music was thought to be "too noticeable" by Rick Berman. Jones has since been a major critic of Berman-era Trek. ; he cited the music of the subsequent Trek spin-offs as "less melodic and more pad-like."  Furthermore, he thought the theme for Enterprise would have been better used for the opening ceremonies of the WNBA. >his music was thought to be "too noticeable"What the fuck does that even mean?
>>3689681Funny thing is... aliminium oxynitrade (ALON) actually exists and is stronger than bullet proof glass. A company has a military contract for its use
>>3698254>Furthermore, he thought the theme for Enterprise would have been better used for the opening ceremonies of the WNBA. He ain't wrong.Enterprise's shit opening soured me to the show before it even began.Putting that aside, 'too noticeable' is probably code for "I don't like you and I want to hire my buddy, but you're in the way"
>>3689688A shane that they never met again
>>3698260Aluminium oxynitride is pretty neat. Strictly speaking, though, it's a ceramic, and although it's very hard, hardness and strength aren't quite the same thing. I'd need to look into it more closely, but my guess is that it's also extremely brittle. In an application like a fuckin' huge whale tank, I would expect the lateral strain, especially with the entire ship shaking, would cause it to shatter, whereas real aluminum metal would flex a bit. Of course, they did wind up using in-stock polymers in the film.>>3698254In addition to >>3698375, someone was too stupid to turn the music volume down on the mixer.
>>3698608Leftist comedy, truly amazing
>>3689741I loved these fun voyager moments.It wasn't the best, but my and my dad loved watching it because it was so goofy and fun.
is B5 welcome here? im not gonna make a new thread just for this
>>3698254>Berman was born to a Jewish familyWhat it usually means Anon.
>>3692665>>3692668Ya know, if this wasn't Trek, but an open parody set in a 'not trek' universe including ST:Online and FPS video game tropes, it might be watchable TV Smut. But, being ACTUAL LICENSED Trek what the flying fuck is this shit?
>>3689736what is the context of this? Was it like an alternate ending or an outtake or something?
>>3689770man tng is great
>>3694618I did not know that Odo was Mr House and its great.
>>3704356>He hasn't watched ENT
>>3692665>>3692668Lower decks is good they said. Lower decks is a fun parody of Trek they said. Lower decks is the best Star trek in a decade they said. (Technically true)>Lower decksBanned from Argo is how you do a Trek comedy, not this shit.
>>3706031Jesus, what year is it?
>>3695166DS9 is low rent Babylon 5 and there is a good reason why most people skip over it.
>>3706570Oh look it's retarded
>>3698572There is a vid on youtube of a 50cal round exploding a fake head on the otherside if some standard bullet proof glass and then the same test with alon but the fake head this time is jostled but mostly un harmed...
>>3707500Where can I buy some of that?
>>3708511Im looking into making small batches of it. i dont think its commercially available as it is a pretty involved manufacturing process that involves smelting aluminium and ceramics...
