Or was it after?
  • I actually have mine set like that right now! False positives are pretty low for me... except for when I watch Star Trek. Then my device chimes in whenever a character calls for it.

    I've been rewatching Discovery, and it's made me learn that they talked to the computer a whole lot more in season 1... the interruptions seemed to drop off significantly after that.

  • Cillian O'Sullivan To Play Roger Korby in Strange New Worlds – Trek Central
  • I agree completely, and it really didn’t help that they introduced him in an episode that took place during an alternate version of the TOS timeframe. I can deal with him as a younger Kirk, but as a version of Kirk in his prime? No way.

  • Average CSS
  • This is technically responsive, but I think you have a fair criticism. A single rule like this would be much more maintainable:

    #content .grid-container {
    	width: 90vw;
    	min-width: 12rem;
    	max-width: 75rem;
    	padding: 2rem 0 1rem;

    Obviously, media rules have their place, but not for something that's consistantly a full width container like this seems to be.

  • When you finally get to watch Discovery and realize it isn't actually an enormous pile of mugato dung
  • A lot of people have a problem with the first season’s tone (which is no darker than DS9 so I don’t see the big deal) but the writing really was extremely solid. At least until the end when they decided to rush through wrapping up the Klingon war in two episodes because they spent so much time in the mirror universe.

  • When you finally get to watch Discovery and realize it isn't actually an enormous pile of mugato dung
  • I’ve never watched Rick And Morty, but I find the constant reference humour to be very grating. I’ve come to appreciate the characters but also can’t get excited about it like most of the other series. I’d definitely rate it in the bottom half of Trek shows.

  • Dwayne "The Trek" Johnson
  • Glad you enjoyed it, but to me it felt exceptionally cynical, even more so than other marketing inspired crossovers. The particular way the crew became so keen about wrestling for this one episode was so ingenuine.

    Combs is always nice to see, of course.

  • "Star Trek is woke now"
  • And I’ve never personally seen anyone called a racist for criticizing a show’s writing quality. In fact, there are plenty of people in this thread expressing distaste for Discovery who don’t seem to be getting much flack for it at all.

    For my part, while Discovery had its faults, I’d favour its writing over Enterprise’s any day of the week. Seems like a lot of fans have really warmed up to Enterprise in the past few years, but in my day it was almost universally derided, and every time I’ve tried to give it a rewatch it’s only reinforced that impression.

  • "Star Trek is woke now"
  • Nah, no one would call the Michael Bay Transformers movies “woke”. We all know it’s about displaying progressive values.

    If you want to say something’s badly written, you can just say that, and avoid aligning yourself with bigots who flip their lid over a black little mermaid.

  • Meet the New Class of Cadets in Star Trek: Starfleet Academy
  • In 1997 adding a sexy Borg crew member to Voyager reeked of desperation. But the writers actually gave a shit and whoever was in charge of casting took the time to find someone who could actually act, so in the end Seven Of Nine became one of the best things to come out of Voyager (nevermind the cringe worthy marketing and costume).

    End of the day, I don't care about the mental state of the exec signing off on an idea, because even a bad one can turn out good with the right talent. And I don't see why Star Trek as a teen drama is a bad idea. Star Trek can work with all sorts of genres, and we've still got SNW holding down the fort as the old school exploration series.
