I remember once in an ending shot in TNG right before the credits the star field was mirrored right down the middle.


That field was supposed to suffocate the Irish and let the fire spread to their corpses, but the field was accidentally inverted, extinguishing the fire and letting the Irish spread to other planets.

>Star Fleet Death World regiments

I suppose that could make sense. If you watch the shows it does look more and more like most of their major problems are solved by some organisation that never gets screen time. I've always assumed that was section 31 doing something reprehensible behind the scenes, but what if there are a few combat regiments serving with Star Fleet that kick arse every day and never get talked about or recognised because nobody wants to admit that their utopia only exists because of the ten thousand or so muscular, psychotic, violent bastards (presumably with some kind of deeply traumatised, Academy graduate, handler) who kill and burn in their name.


Don't pretend that wouldn't be a fun series to watch.

One possible difference is that the runabout in DS9 hid in Kuiper belt on the outer edges of a solar system, not in rings around a planet well within the solar system. Within orbit of a planet, much closer to its star, there's a lot more background radiation and interference you can hide in, unlike a Kuiper belt which is basically deep space. Further, the Jem'Hadar's primary mission in DS9 was to actively find and destroy the runabout, so it makes sense that they spent several hours trying to find it. The Kalon vessels just chanced upon an easy target while doing something else. Once the easy target became less of an easy target, they stopped trying to look for it and went on to finish whatever mission they were on before detecting the Orville.

You have a point, but what I was imagining was more like this:

<Very well, you may proceed with secondary objective and terminate the vessel.

>Central Processing, the Union vessel has entered an ice ring and are foolishly trying to evade detection. They are unable to obscure themselves indefinitely, and will soon be found. Revised estimated time to eliminate woud delay completion of primary objective by 3.66%.

<A delay of greater than 3% is considered unacceptable according to mission parameters. You will continue on your original course.

>Season 2 Status Report:

Starfleet sends the USS Fidget Spinner to investigate seven mysterious red energy bursts and a creature called the red angel. These phenomena are somehow connected to Spock, but he's in the space nuthouse so nobody can ask him. Also, everyone is sad. Michael is sad about Spock and later she's sad about practically fucking everything. Stamets is sad that his boyfriend died, but then he comes back to life, but that doesn't work out so he's sad about that too. Dr. Culber is sad that he came back to life, then he gets angry about it, then he gets sad again. Tyler is sad that he can't be with either of his stronk wimmens (the Klingorc emperor and Michael) and he's sad about having to send his newborn son to Klingon Tibet. Pike is sad that he keeps getting cucked at every turn and that nobody takes him seriously. Tilly is sad because her imaginary spore parasite friend had to go away. The only person who's not sad is Saru who uncovered an evolutionary lie about his entire species and turned into a Chad overnight (but not really).

As the investigation goes on the ship encounters a giant space brain which uses its last moments of life to download all of its memories into Discovery's computer. Meanwhile, Spock escapes the loony bin and Michael has some Family Drama (TM) with Sarek and Amanda, then goes off to find Spock on her own. She takes him to Talos IV where the Talosians fix his mind, but not his autism. He explains that he met the red angel and it shPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Michelle Yeoh was in some shit I saw recently and all I could think was how poorly her character is treated in STD. I feel like a Mirror Universe Empress coming over to the main universe has potential (even if the reason Michael took her was fucking retarded), especially if you make it a bit tongue in cheek, but STD makes no use of her besides

>haha in my universe everyone casually eats sentient species and fucks each other and did I mention I am actually evil >:))))

which gets boring fast. It wasn't her only issue (like everyone else, Georgiou is too dependent on Michael, a black hole of a character), but it's an obvious one.

>all I could think was how poorly her character is treated in STD.

The writers tried to redeem the character but it was a huge mistake, she is literally worse than Hitler, you can't change people's perception of the character just by having her act friendly towards Burnham. To this day I think Mirror Lorca was the lesser of the two evils and could've had a redemption arc if the showrunners and the writers didn't hate the character they've never said it openly but it's noticable in the writing.

Well fuck. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

I don't trust his math (not that he didn't just pull those numbers out of his ass) and he completely dismisses the necessary engineering (not that he has any knowledge of the subject to begin with), but what he says is basically correct. Of course, it's about like saying "fusion bombs work by mashing hydrogen together to make helium" and then attacking anybody making hydrogen on an industrial scale. The premise is factual, but the application is stupid.

Rick Robinson's First Law: An object impacting at 3 km/sec delivers kinetic energy equal to its mass in TNT. Consider the terminal velocity of a rock falling out of orbit. Then figure out how big of a rock you'd need to match the yield of a conventional nuclear weapon. Add a margin of error to compensate for ablatement during reentry. Build a mass driver on the dark side of the moon, facing roughly retrograde. Launch rocks on a return trajectory to earth. Include some form of active guidance for mid course correction and re-entry control. Drop rocks on your enemies your enemies with kinetic energy best measured in kiloton-TNT equivalents.

a61df7  No.30624


Well like you I can't be assed to look up the math, but his whole "complaint" is retarded; firstly, no state has broadly recognized "ownership" of any part of the moon, so the moon (like everything else) effectively belongs to whoever has the will and capability of claiming and defending it (which is no one for the foreseeable future), so there's really no civil authority who can control what a company could do there except at where they would be launching from earth.

Secondly, any "company" with the will and capability to deploy hard military powers like shooting down satellites or releasing orbital kinetic impactors is a de-facto state actor in itself, so the idea of "legislating" what a corporation like that is "allowed" to do is nonsense (they have access to nuclear weaponry equivalents and are going to listen to what congress cucks want if they're not in agreement? Not likely).

Thirdly, big business already gets basically everything it wants out of every western government anyway (aside from small quibbles, but realistically trustbusting and laws constraining international capital and the financial sector are extremely lax, massively biased against smaller competitors and local business), so why should they care if it is the U.S. government who de jure controls the moon when they de facto decide how it would be used anyway?

Overall it's the nonsense worry of the type of guy who would cut his dick off and change his name to Brianna tbh.

Also LOL at calling guided orbital connetic impactors "dropping rocks", what a retard

That's the real issue here, in order to outbang a conventional nuke you'd need a fucking huge rock. The tsar bomba had a yeild of 50 megatons, that's a 50 million ton rock at 3km/s. Sure, the rock is gonna be going a lot faster than that since it's got the whole distance from the moon to accelerate, but you'd still probably need a rock with a mass of tens or even hundreds of thousands of tons, and then you've got to build something that can launch it off the moon.

It would be far, far easier just to use nukes, and you don't even need to be on the moon to do that.

>The Canadians expended a lot less blood doing it

I'm not familiar with estimations of the tribal populations in each country, but I expect the Iroquois et al were significantly less well armed and organized than Southern tribes which had been raiding the mexicans for many years. As well Canada also ended up with a significantly larger intransigent underclass of Indians than the US (although not to be outdone, they imported and released an even larger and more intransigent underclass from Africa). In fact the Indians served as the primary members of the progressive coalition for white genocide in Canada until their numbers were eclipsed by chinks and poos over the previous decades, while propaganda has shifted more towards the vanilla Americanized "muh poor niggers".

Seems legit. But here's a question: do you suppose there is any difference between coffee that is replicated directly, and coffee that is made in an actual espresso machine with grounds made from replicated beans?


They were worried about running out of torpedoes but didn't want to sacrifice the spare warp core, until the time came when there were simply no more torpedoes (or not enough to ensure they wouldn't run out in the middle of a battle) and so had to dismantle it. It's always nice to have a backup, but surviving the current situation takes precedent because if you're dead the backup does you no good.

>Not interesting

How is it not interesting? It explores solar system politics and hard sci-fi concepts while dealing with a grim-dark alien presence lurking behind everything with unknown implications.

>Has badly written characters, plot, and setting

1. I agree Holden, the Asian dude and Naomi are a bit vanilla, but the rest are absolutely fucking entertaining characters.

2. The plot isn't bad. It's laid out on a series of books and planned from the beginning, it dives deep into interplanetary conflict.

3. How the fucking is the setting bad?!! It's sets are absolutely beautiful.

>Pretends to be realistic to get the dumb person pretending to be smart audience

You don't have to watch it because of "I fucking love science". The fact it actually tries to be realistic instead of giving up any such notion as a premise is now a bad thing? That's not what carries the show anyway, and it's not supposed to. It's a character, plot and exploration driven space opera.

>How is it not interesting?

Those are the main characters, you just answered your question. The other characters might not be "vanilla", but they are undeveloped in the story arc, they're ornamental peacocks meant to strut in and grab your attention for a second before leaping back out of the story.

As for the science… it itself isn't the focus, the point I'm making is not that scifi even hinges on science, but that this story PRETENDS to be realistic. That's the bad part, the pretending, not the science. A good scifi is generally a drama or a tragedy written in the classical sense with character development driving the story, the science is the setting of the scifi, it's not the content itself. This show basically has no story arcs in it, the science is the story, and it's crappy nuscience to start with. If your response to "the setting is bad" is "how the fucking is the setting bad?!! It's sets are absolutely beautiful" you may want to look up what "setting" means in terms of story, because that was fucking embarrassing.

>It's a character, plot and exploration driven space opera.

The only way you could possibly say this is if you've never read a space opera. Mostly I feel bad for you because you've clearly been deprived of the best scifi has to offer… but I'm a bit annoyed that you're calling a prius a sports car. Read this:


Then compare it to Duh Espans.


The book itself was badly written, only a very good director could have made it work on screen.
