Let's have a weapons discussion in trek. What phaser rifles would you like to have. Would you want a Fed model, or the more brutally simple spoonhead made direct energy rifle. If the technology reaches a point where stopping powah and ammo capacity becomes relatively same, would the shape and size of direct energy weapons favor a submachine gun size instead of full length rifles.

Would you rather have a makleth instead of the larger bat'leth due to the extreme short distance of melee CQC in space ship boarding or battle situations. Do you think Worf is a klingon weeaboo who is far too focused on muh million times folded bat'leth because HONOR when he could have got a lot more more out of practical shorter bladed klingon weapons.

Would it not make sense to design phasers for use in EVA suits? Or even to design phasers specifically for use while wearing an EVA suit while issuing different phasers for regular use in a pressurised environment or in a suitable atmosphere?

Well yeah.Why not put a phaser in every codpiece, commbadge, croissant…

In Orville? They're clearly products of our own time and appropriately retarded just like we are.

Completely not going to be surprised when they eventually reveal that everything about how the Union operates is that way because they're all Star Trek fans.

But in Star Trek? They have the technology to be a thousand times more deadly than they are, but don't.

As long as we're headcanoning we might as well assume there's some ideological reason why. In fact they all seem kinda preoccupied with rising above their worst tendancies. Even the most warlike consider themselves products of a legacy of honour.

Maybe you misunderstood me.

I meant more phasers which were designed to be usable while the user was in an EVA suit.

Much like how tools for use in space while on an EVA are designed specifically to be easier to use while wearing an EVA suit makes sense and why those same tools are not used inside the pressurised elements of spacecraft and spacestations.

The original effects are beautiful. The tacky proto-CGI of the remasters doesn't have the same psychadelic love in it and hasn't aged well, imo. It's not like the audience is unaware it's a show from the 60s; it's fine if it looks like a show from the 60s.

It's also the genesis of much of the sci-fi effects industry so it's kind of like shitting on the floor of a museum and smearing it all over everything. Even if I'm really a huge fan of your fancy shit I'm still missing out on the heritage of the original medium if I can't see it anymore.

I'd also kind of like to watch the actual show that the actual people making it thought they were working on. It's pretty clear that even many of the people working on later trek shows didn't really grok many of the more subtle, thoughtful nuances of TOS. I'm not sure how much of that was expressed in the special effects, but under the circumstances I don't trust other people to decide that for me.

The new CG scenes also added more practical effects like they showed the shuttles in the hangar. I think fags shit on them because it's "cool"


df3137  No.30234

The CGI shots were mostly used because upscaling the old effect shots would have been a challenge. I believe the film was missing, so all they had to go on was lower res recordings.

Not debating that they had their reasons.

We have much better algorithms now, though.

On the gripping hand, they knew that they were making a show for shitty TVs and I think I've even noticed certain edgy little background details in some episodes that I suspect they knew–ie intended–to be lost in the lack of clarity for most viewers. It makes sense to be able to see those details now but it makes even more sense to be aware which details they are if you care about the cultural context at all.

If Star Trek is in the future, why doesn't it have anime in it? They still have books, movies, music from Earth, and holographic entertainment. They have paintings and instruments and topiary and statuary. But not a single Miku figurine–why? Japanese people still exist. Was it just stamped out as part of the process of global "Federalization"?

It might be interesting to see a Japanese ship. I know all Federation ships are supposed to be international, but the majority of crewmen we see usually tend to be American, so I'm guessing they do roughly group people according to nationality.

The federation is portrayed as nothing but sympathetic aside from some grousing in the first episodes, the captain and crew have to deal with hard decisions in the far reaches of space without the oversight of starfleet making it paletable, more holograms then you really want to account for and the series ends with Two of them joining Starfleet and two others leaving on a ship of memories and tears realizing that their real enemy was time all along

>MAXIMUM BUMP TOLERANCE EXCEEDED, CAPTAIN!

STD Season One Recap:

Michael Burnham is the greatest starfleet officer in history. She knows literally everything and can solve any problem presented to her with consummate ease and no small amount of condescension. She was adopted as a child by Spock's parents because there were no other foster parents available out of trillions of Federation citizens but those of Star Trek's most iconic character (who never mentioned an adopted sister in 50 years of canon). The greatest starfleet officer in history commits a mutiny which ends up killing her captain and single-handedly plunges the Federation into war with Klingons (who are now bald xenophobes obsessed with racial purity). Instead of serving her lifetime prison term, Michael is recruited as a science specialist on the secretive USS Discovery, the most advanced ship in the fleet which boasts holographic systems that shouldn't exist for decades, and an experimental "spore drive" that can teleport the ship instantly to any point in the galaxy over a "mycelial network" of space mushrooms. They briefly use a giant tardigrade as their navigator until someone found out that the whole concept of tardigrades teleporting via space mushrooms was plagiarized from an indie video adventure game called motherfucking "Tardigrades." Good job CBS.

Among the crew members of the Discovery are Captain Lorca: a no-nonsense hard-ass with a shady past who plays fast and loose with regulations and might be a little too trigger-happy for a starfleet captain. The alien first officer is Saru, who can sense danger and death approaching, and is from a species comprised entirely of betas. Chief Engineer Stamets is in charge of the spore drive and becomes its navigator after the tardigrade is sued out of a job. The medical officer is Dr. Culber who is gay with Stamets and is currently deceased and/or a spore ghost inside the mycelial network. And then there's Tilly: a hyperactive, overweight, autistic ensign completely unsuited for service on starfleet's most advanced, experimental starship, but is nonetheless inexplicably part of the command track program. God save the poor vessel that sees Tilly as her captain. There's a bunch of other characters that make up the bridge crew, butPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

To be fair Riker delivered a perfectly fine show in the sense that it told a story, had pace, was interesting visually and acheived its goals.

unfortuantely the writting continues to be retarded, they set a bar where a character cannot be better liked or more competent then mikey over and over again (which tilly only survived by making her character more annoying and saru by making his character transkelpian and one dimensional as fuck). If you are better or more liked then mikey you get sucked into hard vacuum, current airlock count on this show 2.5. Fuck you

I am, right now. It might surprise you to learn this, but other posters don't need your permission or precedent before they start discussing things. You posted a retarded idea, so I answered explaining why it was retarded. It really makes no difference to me whether you thought this idea had merit or not.

>It was brought up as a partial explanation for why the West devotes so much energy to the economic assassination of Africa and disputed in the very same post.

And you see, this is one of the reasons I took the time to explain why your pet theory is retarded. Your very thesis, that the West performed any kind of "economic assassination" in Africa, is patently flase. Africans committed economic suicide all on their own just fine.

>It was in influential essay A HUNDRED YEARS AGO. It doesn't matter whether it has any merit. It was INFLUENTIAL.

This, too. I mentioned this in my previous post, if you had cared to read, but thanks to your illiteracy I am forced to repeat myself. This shit was never "influential," not a century ago, not ever. It certainly never dominated policy decisions in Western Europe. The only people who call it influential are revisionist commies who seek a post hoc explanation for why Africa is such a shithole, and don't want to consider the notion that it might be because of Africans.

>Who watches strek for the VFX?

This. Star Trek is about people, not spaceships. While a cool space battle is fun every once in a while, it's at best just an element to tie the plot together, not the plot itself. Any shot that doesn't have a person in it is essentially just filler. Done correctly, a battle can be compelling without a single ship on screen, and in many ways having them can be even be distracting.

I always keep going back to that early scene in First Contact. Yeah, the battle against the Borg cube was cool to watch when the Enterprise gets there, but it doesn't hold a candle to the very beginning. When the Enterprise bridge taps into the comm frequency, and all you do is just LISTEN. The commanders directing the ships into position, the calls for battle stations, the shit-your-pants "We are the Borg" hail silencing all else for a moment, then the sounds of explosions, screams, casualty reports, hull breaches; and the entire time the camera is going between the faces of the bridge officers, as they turn from tense apprehension to abject horror because it's all going to Hell. It's visceral. You feel it, instead of just seeing it. And all this accomplished without a single visual effect. They could have done the scene differently; they probably had the budget and could have had the action on screen instead of just audio. But they chose not to, and it's so much more effective done this way.

>it looks as if its a re-render, which i'm shocked they can do.

The guy was the supervisor for that sequence and he kept the files with him for all these years.

>Who watches strek for the VFX?

Sure but if there's an opportunity for a remaster then why wouldn't they try to adjust the CGI scenes? If I'm not mistaken by the end of DS9 they were using CGI

If only they could remaster the plot to make the good guys win….

Even the action oriented episodes in TOS and even TNG it was sort of done the way you described. You felt the tension inside the ship, with the crew. DS9 ruined Trek combat for good. Enterprise somewhat managed to slowly go back to it unintentionally but didn't quite make it.

I thought the plan was a post DS9 universe the Ferengi control most of the galaxy?
