#96986 Star Trek: Discovery. Series talk and discussion

Posted by Gothneo on 01 August 2020 - 06:50 PM

Yeah, I keep getting the 1 month free trial things... and AA had other things I enjoyed, but with all the new Viacom shows being added to AA  I'll eventually come back for a few months.

#96963 Should Playmates make a Star Trek: Lower Decks line?

Posted by Gothneo on 20 July 2020 - 07:25 PM

I dunno if Playmates sees a lot of collectors or kids-pestering-parent-buyers out there. 


But are figure buyers, in any age group, there at all?


Seems like the super hero genre still has some... but I think much has gone to high end niche.

This series seems perfect for something like mini-mates

#96886 Prototypes

Chapel seems to consistently get diss'ed. Overall Chapel appears in at least 25 TOS episodes... which is basically 1/3 of all episodes. Then They brought her back for the animated series and again, Chapel appears in about 1/3 of the episodes. 


So while the argument can be made that she wasn't cast as a main crew member, She is, I think, the character with the most recurrences in TOS, and thus a very prominate character in the series... which is why its the one character I think AA/DST messed up by never releasing.

#96710 Apple TV+ offers limited Free streaming

Posted by Gothneo on 10 April 2020 - 03:32 AM

Looks like Apple TV+ which has some exclusive content is offering it up for free for a limited time.


I can't say I've cared for all the shows they have... but in the Sci-Fi genre I did actually like "For all Mankind" 


But even better... the Apple Streaming app seems to collect other free offers from sites like Epix and HBO.

#96536 New Star Trek Series starring Patrick Stewart

Wow. I was reading some of the episodic commentary on trekmovie.com lots of opinions to be sure... but trekcore.com I think wins the day when they point out all the things the Federation and Starfellt have done thats... well not so Utopian...



#96458 René Auberjonois Has Died At 79

Posted by Gothneo on 12 December 2019 - 07:22 AM

Rene Auberjonois passed away from Lung cancer at his home. 


I loved him in MASH, Soap, Benson and so many other roles, but his role as Odo in Star Trek will always be my favorite. 


RIP Rene,   -_-



I think this is the first Primary cast member from a non-TOS show to loose...  Sir Patrick is about the same age, and most TNG cast are in their 60's (except for Will of course), so if meeting some of these beloved actors is a priority, don't wait!



#96448 Star Trek: Section 31

Posted by Gothneo on 30 November 2019 - 06:14 PM

Part of the plot of Unforgiven was that a truly bad person couldn't be reformed. They may tuck those tendencies away for a time, but eventually they return to form. 
Not a very "Trek" message to me :-(

Also ... noted from the article Kurtzman says  to me section 31 is sort of like the black ops CIA division of Star Trek and it was established in DS9.

Its true that the concept of section 31 was introduced in DS9... but I think Ive said this before... my take was that it was portrayed as almost an antiquated organization and concept that served to cause more damage then good... and ultimately their path to victory over the dominion was flawed and shown to be the wrong path... ultimately it was diplomacy through Odo that brought the end of the conflict. So the concept was used as plot device to setup internal antagonist that wee shown to be wrong and ultimately failed... essentially saying that the Trek universe of the future doesnt need.... never needed a black ops CIA division.

Of course Im sure Kurtzman plans to retcon that concept☹

#96411 Nichelle Nichols Plans Farewell Celebration

Posted by Gothneo on 06 November 2019 - 04:02 AM

Just like the topic says, Nichelle Nichols is holding her final convention next May...


"on May 1 - 3, we invite you to join us for Nichelle’s final voyage with those friends and fans that love and adore her. Come spend time with this extraordinary woman—the last opportunity that you will have to celebrate with her—and join in the celebration of her incredible life and amazing achievements."


Looks like they will have plenty other guest as well. 


​I've had the pleasure to meet her and hear her speak at a number of other conventions, truly a wonderful person, so If its on your bucket list... this may be the last opportunity!

#96318 New Star Trek Series starring Patrick Stewart

Posted by Gothneo on 09 August 2019 - 06:58 AM

Pretty much agree 100% Alex, Rick Berman weighed in...

Stewart, Spiner, Frakes, Ryan, Chabon, Goldsman....what else could we ask for?  Im holding my breath. Watch!!

Nice to see excitement on this show... I think Ill still wait to sub up for 2020 until a few episodes are out, but Im genuinely excited for this show.
