It's a Q episode
the enterprise actually do imaginative scifi things like they are supposed to
I've been a Star Trek fan for 20 years but never watched Enterprise because Voyager was just too boring / bad and the movies weren't good either. I now started watching it on a whim and I'm having a really good time. It's a wilder and pulpier take on Star Trek, but it works and is a lot of fun. Kind of a mix between TNG and TOS.
Also waifus in most episodes.
It's a 'Lwaxana carries on her inappropriate relationship with Alexander' episode.
Shhhhh, don't attract the Voyager or Enterprise faggots
>That episode where Q makes the Enterprise fight the Borg
I fucking love this show and I am excited as fuck I still have so much to watch for the first time.
What Trek are you watching guys? How are you liking it?
>haven't watched TOS
>don't know how much i've seen of TNG as i only watched what they showed on TV at the time
>same thing with Voyager and Enterprise
>haven't watched DS9
Maybe i'll buy them and have a ST marathon.
I started with TOS, as that was the only series that existed when I was a kid. Remember staying up to watch Encounter at Farpoint and stayed with TNG throughout. I found that I enjoyed the entire thing more as I was able to watch it all in order as it came out, and I encourage anyone who is looking to get into everything to just do that.
>Enterprise should be last
All these flavors, and you choose salty.
I got you covered, cupcake.
shh. the autist TFAers will report any Soren pics and get them deleted. Has been happening the last week.
this is also not Soren.
It's part of the charm of the image. They exist in every possible combination, and no one has changed the uniforms once.
>It's a 'Lwaxana in general' episode
Why do I find her so attractive?
its the eyes.
they screen tested Marina Sirtis with them too.
Troi didn't but Luwaxana did.
Which is kind of fucked since Data, a much more central character, wore yellow contact lenses in every single frame you see him in.
I've only recently realised how much I've not seen of TOS, I just have like an ambient knowledge of it, despite having thoroughly consumed everything else.
I've been watching episodes daily on some cheapo Britbong channel calld CBSaction, they air just in time for dinner. They're the HD remasters with the incongruous looking CGI effects and for some reason the episodes are cropped for widescreen which is annoying me to no end.
I'm enjoying them though, they're sometime less goofy than I imagined them to be. But also sometimes moreso. Today was the one with Spocks dad as a Romulan.
>it's the episode where Lwaxana's sex drive QUADRUPLES
How would you handle that situation?
I always thought they could've made her a lot more interesting if they had made her powers grow during the series.
Not in a suddenly OP'd way like they did with Kes so maybe nobody would notice they were writing her out for Tits of Nine, but a subtle transition to more full Betazoid levels of telepathy or even beyond. The real trick there would've been to keep her from being a massive deus ex.
That pic just made think it would've been cool to see her eyes change as she does.
Hung, I hadn't heard that. I mean it was pretty obvious that the Q were at least partly inspired by The Squire of Gothos but I don't recall any instances of anyone involved in production confirming it, even secondhand.
>mfw the enterprise crew finds out I was using them as sexual fuel while I turned the holodeck into a jackshack
Is Barclay just /r9k/ in space?
Never saw any ST, and really don´t have the time to see all of it.
Is this reasonably accurate?
Watch a Top Ten or Top Twenty episode list of TOS. If you like what you see, go back to the beginning and watch the whole show.
Watch the pilot of TNG, then try watching from the beginning of the third season. If you like what you see, go back to the beginning and watch the whole show.
Save DS9 as a reward for when you finish TOS and TNG.
Q is objectively the best character in Star Trek all shows and they had an opportunity to make a sort of concluding this chapter of humanity final super dooper TNG movie but instead we got JJ rebooting Star Trek into capeshit
>no Q related TNG movie
Was he too campy for a movie?
>He didn't watch "...All good things."
Q passed judgement on them at the end of TNG, he was done with them.
He only shows up again in voyager because they REALLY needed something to breathe life into the show between the doctor screaming about MUH RIGHTS and Seven of Nine has bathroom troubles episodes.
All good things is a better trek movie than any of the actual TNG movies.
>He didn't watch "...All good things."
I believe Q said something about seeing them among the stars. I didn't get the feeling that he was somehow saying goodbye or something. I could be wrong.
>I didn't get the feeling that he was somehow saying goodbye
>in the farewell episode literally about saying goodbye, and endings
>in the farewell episode literally about saying goodbye,
come on, there was no finality to it like he died or something. The door was totally open to having him come back in a movie someway if it could have been pulled off right.
Fuck off, Jonathan.
Why did Riker have girly eyes?
I was going to say "Wow she looks young there!"
Than I expanded the image and realized that the only reason she looked young in the thumbnail is because someone gave her Disney Princess style large childlike eyes.
>come on, there was no finality to it like he died or something. The door was totally open to having him come back in a movie someway if it could have been pulled off right.
Bro it was totally a send off for the audience. Q was a book end for the entire series.
>Q was a book end for the entire series.
Then what are the movies? Q, who literally was the driving force of both the premiere and the finale has no place at all in any of the movies?
You first, aussie
How about we give the gold to Kirk?
An admiral on a battlestar is only a Lieutenant in Starfleet.
>Then what are the movies?
Objectively trash, and not worth anyone's time.
muh first contact
Watching DS9 coherently for the first time - just watched the episode were a group of cadets kill themselves by singlehandedly attacking a ship described as being twice as large and 3 times more powerful than a galaxy class ship
We've effectively seen it already.
Mr. Spock: I object to you. I object to intellect without discipline; I object to power without constructive purpose.
Trelane: Oh, Mr. Spock, you do have one saving grace after all: you're ill-mannered! The Human half of you, no doubt?
>then giving Nemesis 5/10
Off yourself. Generations was a solid 6/10, with FC being a 7-7.5 imo.
Fuck Nemesis on principle for me. """Admiral""" Janeway, everyone getting old as fug, Data
dying and don't give me STO canon shit, etc.
Superior officiating can only go so far to overcome a massive technological edge. In any case, the Federation would file the Colonies away as another warlike junior race, escort the survivors to some safe haven, and tell the Cylons to fuck right off.
Wasted but not terrible.
>First Contact 4/5
Pretty damn good. The complaints are too much action but still.
Would even have been a subpar two parter during the series. Not much to defend.
Another subpar movies that hurts more because it was the end.
My entire point has been...there is no way Q makes the last two anymore worse than they were.
>he was done with them
You might want to rewatch that. Picard/humanity may have passed, but Q tells Picard that "The trial never ends." in no uncertain terms. He also tells him that he'll always be watching, and that if Picard is very lucky, he might drop in from time to time.
Sir, they are firing... ballistic weapons at us
Nemesis is like a 1/10 for me. Insurrection was decent, 5/10.
Generations doesn't really get the recognition it deserves over the other films. Not praise, just realizing the components.
No big deal. I'm moreso just mad at Nemesis simply existing.
>sir, they seem to have dispatched a number of small craft
>they aren't slowing down
>can we identify them?
>they seem to just be large metal slugs?
>whats the meaning of this
>sir, they bounced off the hull
>Sir, they are now firing nuclear fission missles at us
>Generations doesn't really get the recognition
I read something somewhere one time in a critique of Generations that switching the Kirk/Picard roles in the Nexus would have been a massive improvement and makes more logical sense.
Maybe Trash is harsh. There are worse movies. But these fail at being good trek, and also fail at being sci-fi action/adventure. So its doubly damming.
Shit insurrection is the better of them, just because half of the movie feels like a really bad late season episode of TNG. Then they throw in worf with a zit on his nose, and a purple space bazooka, and picard is having another fist fight with an alien.
Where the fuck is the Picard that used an alien's own pain in the ass treaty to jam up their own ass while he evacuates colonist? Or the captain that tap danced through Romulan snares and double crosses?
Threadly reminder that if pic related isn't your Trekfu, you frequent reddit
I'm pretty sure these threads have done damage to my heart because of her.
>her job is to protect the civilians
>the civilians ~might~ die while following her
>so instead of trying to protect them, she ensures with 100% certainty that they die
Practical about what? Doing a shitty job? Betraying everything that her service stands for?
Generations was so unbelievably lazy that it probably deserved less than 4/10 - I just give it that because, as you say, I like the concepts and components that put it together.
But with the two different types of uniform, and the plot holes, and the general illogicalities (of all the fucking places to exit the Nexus...) there's no way it's actually a "good" movie.
Nemesis is the same as TFA in my opinion. An average movie, fine performances, made well, and just a complete carbon-copy of a successful film in the same franchise (ANH, TWoK) so lacking in any originality or creative vision. Just your average silver-screen fare.
Insurrection has Geordi's first sunset, the fight in the nebula, and some good performances. I'm pretty sure those are the only good elements of the movie.
A wise anon once gave some advice to future trek fans and it was to never make the mistake he made of watching everything within a few months. That it was important to space the show out and Pace yourself while watching.
Oh come now. Insaneway may have been a schizophrenic psychopath, inconsistent, a caffeine junkie, and any other number of complaints, but being ugly wasn't one of her problems.
>implying you wouldn't
>mfw I have no idea because I grew up during TNG and remember when DS9 premiered
Exactly, she's a traitor too. She went against the orders of the previous political authority (which set up the service to protect the citizens of the colonies) and she went against the current political authority (Roslin), making her a traitor to both.
This whole discussion, all you've been doing is listing the reasons why she's a coward and a traitor.
I've seen all of TNG and DS9. I like Trek, but there are a few things that stop me getting really invested in it:
>the consistently unfunny, cringeworthy nan humour
>the sometimes shit characters (like sisko's girlfriend, Beverley Crusher and Troi)
>the cringe relationships
Essentially, the character interactions are often awkward and make my autism flare up.
Also in DS9:
>the constant use of the phrase "smug, superior attitude"
Essentially, the characters clash with my millennial post-ironic sensibilities.
Practical about having one ship guaranteed to survive as opposed to all probably dying. Besides, unlike the Galactica she actively attacked cylon ships.
>Sometimes we have to leave people behind so that we can go on. So that we can continue to fight. Sometimes we have to do things that we never thought we were capable of, if only to show the enemy our will. Yesterday, you showed me that you're capable of setting aside your fear, setting aside your hesitation, and even your revulsion. Every natural inhibition that, during battle, can mean the difference between life and death. When you can be this for as long as you have to be, then you're a razor. This war is forcing us all to become razors. Because if we don't, we don't survive. And then we don't have the luxury of becoming simply human again.
Hey faggots, I'm trying to decide which Trek to rewatch: DS9, Voyager, or TNG. Post some re-watch guides so I can weed out the shitty episodes.
Pic unrelated, my trekfu
Watch all of TNG, then watch all of DS9, then watch all of Voyager.
Someone have the ferengi version of pic related?
That's why you don't do favors for old men suffering from brain diseases.
Grew up in the mid to early 90s myself so I guess I could have seen almost every thing during it's first run. Sadly I never had anyone to introduce me into the world of Star Trek.
Nothing ever can recreate the ultimate comfy and excitement I experienced when I watched the first season of DS9 on VHS. The world felt so vast and dynamic. The characters were based.
>that "last stop at the edge of the universe" vibe to early DS9
I'm sure we can come to some sort of arrangememt
Made this one a while back for a similar request. Don't have one for TNG or DS9. Might make one at some point.

May she live on forever in our memories
watching enterprise for the first time. on first season. much better show than i expected. screencapping the hell out of tpol too...
then watch voyager, its basically star trek 3, if tos was 1 and tng was 2. ds9 is babylon 5.
They haven't ruled it out, the official word from them is that the best way to make it happen is to buy the TNG ones.
I've done my part. The TNG ones look fucking amazing. Love them.
Decided to try combining 'tism with 'tism by building a runabout out of the Lego in my basement. Brutally hard to find the right pieces in the right colors, but it's coming along nicely. Dollar for scale.
>he doesn't use the transporters to just deconstruct the shit straight from his colon back into the energy supply
BSG is two seasons and a movie of greatness, and then one long tailspin of disappointment from there on out
>that shrew auntie voice
According to the blueprints it does. Apparently they never showed the rear section in any episode of DS9 though, and only showed part of it in the TNG episode with the time-frozen Warbird
jeri also only spoke to the male actors on set.
dates the producer as part of her power dynamics game.
it came out in her divorce she visited orgies and shit.
jeri ryan was probably a bit of a prissy nutcase too.
i like how the nausicaans are pirates on slow human vessels in enterprise but can only get job as hired goons once starfleet is around in later series.
just saw that enterprise episode so
Now that you mention that, did the Orions get wiped out? I don't recall them making even a single appearance on TNG, DS9, or Voyager.
They are in STO, but I don't know if that counts as canon or not.
your all stupid
And Ferengi, and Cardassians, and Klingons, and Trill (though most of the Trill episodes were bad), and Founders, and Jem'Hadar, and Vorta, and just about everyone except for the Romulans.
Seriously, DS9 dropped the ball when it came to the Romulans. Why did they abandon T'Rul?
They better fucking do it.
I don't mind if I have to wait another 5 years. Well, I sort of do, but at least I don't have kids. Yet.
TNG Bluray was well worth it, cost me $300.00 for individual seasons. Also, if you guys buy the Bluray, GET THE INDIVIDUAL SEASONS. DO NOT GET THE BOX SET. To have an amazon review say it better, I'll quote
>What you will NOT find are the commentaries and documentaries produced for the standalone releases (Best of Both Worlds, Redemption, Unification, Chain of Command, and ...All Good Things).
You can argue for Borg, but Borg/Romulans were TNG/VOY's thing.
If anything ENT had as much as VOY? My memory is spotty atm.
Why did Nana age the best out of all the semen demons on DS9?
>Seriously, DS9 dropped the ball when it came to the Romulans
That's been one of my few consistent complaints about DS9. They teased at doing things with the Romulans, but most of what happens with them happened off screen.
Also one of my complaints about TNG was that they stopped using this awesome music for the Romulans after like season 3 or 4.
Although, at the same time I do think part of what makes the Romulans so great is that they are masters of espionage, and if we got too much of the Romulans, it may have ruined them.
>its a janeway murders a sentient life form and gives no fucks afterwards episode
d-dont worry guys. the last few trek movies had romulans.
Shitty movie but I did like the updated Klingon design.
>Also one of my complaints about TNG was that they stopped using [...] awesome music [...] after like season 3 or 4.
Rick Berman fired composer Ron Jones because Rick "always considered music an intrusion" because Ron's music was "too noticeable".
Today, T'Pol's costumes sell for over $3000. One of her civilian outfits sold for $6500.99 on eBay. Her highest priced item is her original Vulcan uniform which sold for $8,400 at Chrisities back in 2006. Obviously, guys would love to have the clothes that wrapped T'Pol's curvy body.
some rich fucker out there has his own tpol clothes to wank off into every night. i doubt they smell like her anymore though.
Their was only one Romulus Episode in ENT; Minefield
We never actually see them though.
It's a pretty good episode all in all.
all i wanted for the next one was for idriss elba to be a klingon... :(
>that episode where she's sold for a fortune in an orion slave market
>mfw the orion picks her up like a toy and starts shaking her
That's right, isn't it? I knew it! I've always known it! I should've killed every last one of them! I should've turned their planet into a graveyard the likes of which the galaxy had never seen! I should have killed them all
someone start new trek thread.
title it star trek general.
You know the answer to that question.
>Buy a $7000 Real doll that somewhat looks like T'pol
Buy a $3000 screen used T'pol costume
>Put costume on T'pol looking real doll
I can't believe I never realized that was her before. I'm usually pretty good at recognizing reoccurring actors through the rubber faces. Even more so when you consider that they do very little to change women's faces.
