Quote from: Mobbd on September 07, 2021, 09:29:24 AMThanks for the de-facto introduction to Ex Astris Scientia. What an adorable and utterly devoted fan site. I fucking love it. Already starting to dig deep. Seriously, this is awesome.
Quote from: Lemming on September 07, 2021, 12:31:36 AMS04E01 - The Best of Both Worlds Part 2 Not sure if it's the episode's fault or my own lack of listening comprehension, but I couldn't tell you what the fuck is going on during the big scene where the SAUCER SEP happens. Why do the Borg ignore the saucer? Why do they let the shuttle through? They have no problem blowing up other Starfleet vessels on sight, including three which are all simultaneously destroyed on the way to Earth, so why do they give the Enterprise such an easy ride?
Quote from: MojoJojo on September 07, 2021, 08:16:35 PMCould probably have used a line about Shelby's plan to use the saucer as a distraction.

QuoteTROI: What's that?BEV: It's for Wesley, from Jack. I'd forgotten it. Maybe I was just trying to forget it.TROI: Why?BEV: Jack recorded a holographic message to Wesley just after he was born. It was a gift for when he grew up.
QuoteThe depiction of Earth is overwhelmingly dull and comically dated
Quote from: Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse on September 09, 2021, 12:39:31 AMoh god yeah how dare there still be vineyards in the 24th century and why aren't people wearing vacuum-sealed plastic onesies or whatever
Quote from: Cloud on September 09, 2021, 01:31:20 AMI both chuckle at and disagree with the criticism of Guinan "poking her nose in" everywhere - it's just classic barperson trope as also seen with Quark, to a limited degree Neelix etc. To me it's more pointing out how redundant Troi is. Yes people mope about stuff and need emotional support, but is being on a cushy starship so traumatic that it needs a dedicated counsellor as a senior officer? Personally, no, but her sensing abilities could've been put to better use.
Quote from: Lemming on September 09, 2021, 12:28:26 AMS04E02 - FamilyWhat's more though is that this is essentially the last part of The Best of Both Worlds, because we see how being Borg'd affects Picard. Have to be honest, in Star Trek I'm really not that interested in seeing how the heroes react in the aftermath of episodic adventures. I don't think City on the Edge of Forever would be any better if there was a whole subsequent episode about how sad Kirk is, for example, nor could The Doomsday Machine be any better if we had to spend an additional 45 minutes attending Matt Decker's funeral afterwards.
Quote from: Lemming on September 09, 2021, 12:28:26 AMS04E02 - Family...We finally get back to the Bev plot, as Wesley enters the holodeck to see a horrific homo-image of DEAD DAD.
Quote from: Blumf on September 09, 2021, 02:54:56 PMThat whole raising the sea floor job thing was weird. What has Picard got to do with geo-engineering? Sure his crew have done stuff, but Picard himself? His interests are archaeology and pontificating, surely he'd be more likely to join in with some big dig in the ruins of planet Skcollob-9.

Quote from: Endicott on September 09, 2021, 02:26:16 PMThe reset button thing is, from a dramatic perspective at least, one of TNG's weaknesses. The fact that at least once, in this episode, they look at consequences is what makes this episode great, in the top 10 of the series.
Quote from: MojoJojo on September 09, 2021, 04:16:17 PMPicard would presumably be taking on a leadership role. That's his transferable skill.
Quote from: beanheadmcginty on September 09, 2021, 04:41:41 PMThe new Picard S2 trailer has just come it. It looks fucking shit. 7 of 9 driving an SUV for fuck's sake.
Quote from: Blumf on September 09, 2021, 02:54:56 PMEr...
Quote from: Lemming on September 09, 2021, 07:15:12 PMShit. Jesus. Holo-image! Holo-image. Honestly, it's amazing I got as far as I did writing "holo" so many times without that happening.
