TAS is better than DBBS IMHO.

I’m okay with Arex. I’m excited they are exploring making models from TAS though. Arex was just an okay character to me, but this means M’Ress could be coming later down the road and that’s exciting.

So, I’m going out on a limb to say I might be the only one who read “Labrador Spock” and thought the game was going in a REALLY strange direction…

Labrador Spock? I want him, and Newfoundland Kirk, and Quebec McCoy.

From an alternative version of Star Trek where everything is the same but everyone, even the aliens, are inexplicably Canadian.

You misunderstand.  I was going for canine, not Canadian.

Then there’s T’Mir, I am super excited about her. I loved that episode, it’s one of my favourites in Enterprise.

Her son insists on calling me Moe.

It was a really great episode, I hit the $25 commander offer on Captain T’Pol, and if T’Mir is there on Sunday with good stats I can see myself doing it again.

Frankly, I’m very stoked on this one. City on the Edge of Forever is quite an ep and Arex… Yeah he’s been on the want list for a lot of people, including me for a while.

I think those folks will more than make up for the ones who yell and pout.

I’m curious to know why people diss the Animated series if they haven’t even watched it and hate ST Discovery when it hasn’t even been released yet.
ST Timelines is based on the already improbable premise that ALL canonical movies and TV shows of the Star Trek multiverse can converge into one sandbox at the same time.
I remember the same kind of hate for the idea of the Next Generation when the cast and show was announced in the 90’s.
Give ST Discovery a chance, people !
It’s our first TV Star Trek in years, and think we should support it.
Personally, I don’t wanna just watch TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT and TAS re-runs until I die.
More new Star Trek, please, Paramount.


That’s the thing, I don’t watch the atrocious Enterprise reruns. Once we enough. To the point where I shred DVD sets that are given to me ignorantly as gifts. (After properly thanking the giver and waiting a short period of time so there is no hurt feelings. I’ve destroyed 4 sets so far.)

The thing is, there has come forth other science fiction that has something to say. I’m pining more for JMS to get off his duff and do his new B5 than more tragic TINO (Trek in Name Only.) And I’d rather New Voyages/Phase II/Axanar continued as they really had shown the spirit of Trek. The fact that some of JJ’s folks are in on Discovery and the trailers and interviews with the actors have talked about how dark and disturbing and like the Walking Dead it’s gonna be, just deflates the air out of me. So what do I do? I look at non-trek shows when I want something new. With the exception of Jessica Jones, the Netflix Marvel series showed heart and actually said something.

I want new good Trek. Not just something for the sake of having something new. Otherwise, like my movie ticket money which hasn’t gone to Trek in several films, I’ll be sitting with my 3d glasses on watching Black Panther and Thor.

One piece of feedback event wise though.

There’s a ton more bonus crew on the previous event that is a galaxy. It would be nice if the faction events were the ones more bonus crew heavy than the galaxy events since you really need the depth with the shuttles. (And that’s taking into account Spock, but look at Daxes vs Spock and T’Pol vs Obrien and Odo combined.)

C’mere, T’Mir! I hope we get her in the old Vulcan uniform, ‘cos those were cool, but if not, I guess that’ll be another variant of her down the road.

She wears three or four distinct outfits in that episode, so in theory, they could multiple T’Mirs down the road.

But I seriously doubt that would happen.

Something I would like to point out, we have more than 52 UNIQUE events.  We know of at least 4 more new ones coming soon with the Discovery mega month.  DB PLEASE do more re-runs.  We do not need all these brand new events.  We are already looking at over a year delay to see any specific event re-run now if you just began going right down the list.  So dust off those old events, tweak/fix them where needed, and run them again, PLEASE.

Good to see TAS getting some loving!

Bit less good to see some folk being sourpusses over it though.

I find the majority of VOY and ENT episodes to be badly written garbage, but I’m happy that people who disagree with me get characters they love, and I’m not about to airlock them if I get them because I’m not that petulant.
