Quote from: Wonderful Butternut on September 09, 2021, 06:50:40 PMMaybe that's what they will do. The "bad" future is actually the one we're going to irl and they have to restore the future where 600 million people die in WWIII cos it's the better one long term. I'm struggling to see how it'll end up as anything but painful to watch though. I didn't like when Enterprise hammered the War on Terror similarities in season 3 right into our eyes and ears with suicide bombers and Trip going on about 'none of the non interference crap' in case watching Archer look for WMDs might be too subtle otherwise. This looks like it could be on the same level.
Quote from: Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse on September 09, 2021, 07:05:44 PMI would like to be able to watch that story and enjoy the moral dilemma as something purely based in the Star Trek universe but it'll be tough not to read it as "nuclear annihilation would be better than the present 21st century". I'm imagining Picard trying to find a third choice even though that will erase a ton of history.
Quote from: JamesTC on September 09, 2021, 07:13:03 PMI doubt they will acknowledge WWIII, Phillip Green (future Hitler) or Terra Prime.
Quote from: Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse on September 09, 2021, 07:15:31 PMThey'd have to acknowledge World War III. People who watch this watched First Contact. Never heard of Phillip Green.
Quote from: Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse on September 09, 2021, 06:57:46 PMYou know Geordi's from Africa, right? So why does he sound American? How come Worf doesn't sound Russian? What's Deanna's accent supposed to be? How come Lwaxana doesn't have one?

Quote from: beanheadmcginty on September 10, 2021, 02:37:01 AMThey really need to stop fucking swearing. It's the most incongruous thing to introduce to Star Trek. It doesn't make the characters cool and relatable, it makes them childishly underwritten and shit. Kirk being baffled by profanity in Star Trek 4 is a wonderful moment. Every time I hear them swear in the new stuff it bursts that Shatner balloon.
Quote from: JamesTC on September 10, 2021, 09:01:00 AMNew Star Trek is a robot that perfectly understands the facts but has no concept of context.Yes we saw Data cut off from swearing in TNG. Yes we saw Data swear in Generations. But there was a context behind those moments. What is the context of the swearing in New Trek? It is just savage backwards thinking applied to the future (in Star Trek terms).Fucking idiots.
Quote from: Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse on September 10, 2021, 08:39:32 AMThey don't actually swear that much lads. They could cut it back by about 33% but it's not excessive. It just seems like a lot because outside of the movies the TNG cast never swore. Unless it was in Klingon.
Quote from: Blumf on September 10, 2021, 09:27:48 AMAnd it was only that one time we saw a character being vivisected. Just the once, no big deal. Right, guys?God DAMN! It's so refreshing and grown up to see them all swearing occasionally. You can see it's a real drama now, because they use adult language, like grown ups do,... Yeah mum, I said I'd take the rubbish out, gaawd!!!... anybody complaining about it are just being big babies, not like us, proper grown ups.Ii mean, Star Trek Picard makes the Fast & Furious films look childish, that's how cool and grown up and mature it is. ... Muuuuum, I said I'd do it! Leave me alone!
