They never swore before (I wonder if that had anything to do with it being on television and having to abide by broadcasting standards and practices) therefore this is just one more piece of evidence that proves etc.
Quote from: Alberon on September 10, 2021, 12:18:18 PMThat's the problem when a lead actor does an accent, guest actors rarely copy them. See also Londo Mollari in Babylon 5.
Quote from: JamesTC on September 10, 2021, 12:53:25 PMSwearing changes the tone of something. Like how early Big Finish had swearing in before fans complained. It doesn't matter if there was another reason they didn't swear back then, why change it now that it has been established as part of the tone of the series? Particularly when there was a specific moment in one film in which that language was deemed backwards.
Quote from: Lemming on September 10, 2021, 04:33:41 PMNo problem with swearing in Star Trek - the way people speak in the 90s shows is kind of stilted and odd - but it feels very knowing and giddy in neo-Trek. "You're right ensign, it is fucking cool!!!", "shut the fuck up," etc. Lame. Same for Picard saying he has no time for Q's "bullsh-" in the trailer.Not really swearing but there's a terrible line in Picard where he goes to Troi and Riker's Alaskan getaway home and says "you wanna be ass-deep in Romulans for the rest of your life?" The line is so awkward forcing its way out of Patrick Stewart's lips. Not something Picard would ever be likely to say. Something Butt-Head might say.
Quote from: Endicott on September 10, 2021, 05:10:36 PMIt's hard to get worked up either way re the swearing in Picard, but just for the hulluvit someones put all the older series swearing in a videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ErazOHgjhQ

Quote from: greenman on September 10, 2021, 06:24:10 PMThere were also quite a few character who did have accents like Londo, Refa most obviously and I seem to remember the friend Londo duels with? coincidental in both cases the most obvious lack of accent was Majel Barrett.
Quote from: beanheadmcginty on September 10, 2021, 02:37:01 AMThey really need to stop fucking swearing.
Quote from: Mr Trumpet on September 10, 2021, 07:24:51 PMHis much younger lady friend Adira as well. Maybe at least one of his wives. The Centauri accent is pretty broad, even I can do a decent approximation and i'm not a trained actor or nuffink. Stephen Furst and Majel Barrett were both just lazy (RIP)Edit: It's pretty much how Tommy Wiseau naturally speaks now I think about it.
