Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

sayonara, why would the delta flyer have transwarp? its just a fancy big shuttle. too big to fit through the shuttlebay doors apparently!

(also, putting the quotes afterwards is slightly annoying because you start reading the post and wonder what you're talking about.)

Because it's one of Tom's Magic Ships(TM) that he can manufacture at will. The laws of physics don't apply to those. Just look at the Threshold Shuttle. And that was only his first try.

That probably refers to Threshold, where they modified a shuttle to reach Warp 10. For a long time I thought Trek couldn't sink any lower, then we got ENT with its third season and the time-traveling Vampire Space Nazis.

Pft, if you notice, Janeway will take -every- opportunity to stand at a higher elevation than the person she's talking with.
That's because she's 5'5" and Tom, Tuvok and Chakotay are all over 6 feet tall!

Teacake... I don't mean to correct you... but I'm afraid Imust.

Its not that our Captain is so "humble" that she doesn't need an iconic CHAIR.

Its because our CAPTAIN is herself iconic... She doesn't need a fancy chair.

As Kayshyk discovered, to his eternal regret.

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

I liked the ending to Counterpoint... though to me the big flaw is... did they just forget about Tuvok and Vorik? I mean Janeway even makes a point at looking at Tuvok while she's talking to Prax on the viewscreen.

Janeway falling for a Gestapo agent? Makes perfect sense!

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

It's a standard design.

Can they only staff Intrepid Star Ships with iconic Captains who can overcome the limited seating plan when all the other shitty Captains get propped up booster seats that clearly define them as in charge for idiots looking for a delineated pecking order...

OH!

Putting the Captain in the centre, on the highest chair is a "language".

I am big.

I am tall.

Taller than you.

Fear me, respect me, glorify me.

It's subliminal inference for first contact with backward assholes who are afraid of fuckers from the high-ground still... Which voyager didn't have.

Voyager's Skillset was never intended for first contact or exploration because it's bridge layout is not being used to manipulate the small minded into subconsciously kowtowing.

I always found the "throne for the captain" concept to be kind of silly.

The same thing Sisko criticized about the Prefect's Office in Ops.

Yet the Defiant's Captain's Chair was elevated.

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

Klingon thrones have plumbing.

Consider.

A boarding part cuts through the hull.

Fights it's way to the bridge.

Only to find that the bridge is a dozen privies in use that have never been properly cleaned.

If that smell doesn't repel these fearless commandos, then they deserve the ship.

What's up for the ruler of the entire planet hiding away in an orbital ore processing plant?

Is he afraid of the terrorists, or did Dukat really like to look down his nose at these people?

Imagine if the next President decided that he wanted to live on Airforce One, and that the plane was NEVER going to land again until he was out of office?

Something that really bothered me about Voyager is how EXTREMELY CHEAP the interior of the ship looked. The enterprise D was very elegant. The bridge was distinct and all the primary stations were recognizable. The defiant was also very detailed and well designed.

BUT ON VOYAGER:

..Everything seems to be made of this icky fisher price looking gray plastic
They're the same sets as TNG.

..The helmsmen sits in an office depot desk chair
So? Chair design isn't likel;y to change all that much, considering how it's stayed fairly static for the last several centuries.

..The captains chair isnt even iconic like it is on the Enterprise A, B, C, D and E... or the Defiant.. That bothered the shit out of me.
It's a workplace, not a throne room.

..There seem to be at least 4 different "conference" rooms. They are so drab and spartan you dont care if they are deciding the fate of the galaxy or planning a tea party
And what are these four? I can think of the briefing room and the ready room, which function exactly as they did in TNG.

..No Ten Forward or Bar.. instead the crew spend all their time in a holodeck???
Yeah, if they had a mess hall or something, that would have been better.

..Engineering is only SLIGHTLY better but not by much. I hate to keep rehashing it but when you were in engineering on geordi's enterprise, you knew and felt it.
Voyager's engineering is pretty distinctive.

..Having the nacelles go into "flight mode" everytime you go to warp is ridiculous. How long does it take to angle the pylons 45 degrees before you engage? Just long enough for someone to take out the warp drive? (which seems to happen constantly)
Constantly? I doubt it. I'm not sure off the top of my head, but I doubt there were any more than a handful of times when an enemy shot disabled their warp drive when the shot was fired immediately before they went to go to warp. And the same thing happened on TNG as well.

Re: Was Voyager designed by Sanford and Son?

Were the floors actually carpetted?

I know they said they were in TNG, but did we actually see the carpet?

Was Voyagers bridge carpeted?

It just seems off to have the rooms all carpeted but not the corridors.

And really, lets think of all the times the carpet should have been replaced!

OH!?

They wouldn't clean carpets?

They'd just be constantly transport/replicate/replacing the carpet in any room as soon as it's empty of observers?
