Re: Welcome new Voyager fans!

Future's End is one of my top 5 Voyager episodes, I love Sarah Silverman and she makes me forget what the episode is actually about as Rayne Robinson. The only thing that would have made it a better episode is Tuvok in Hammer pants.

Those episodes make me sit back and really think about how ancient the 90's were compared to now. It's interesting to see how far we have come. Rayne was definitely a highlight. Also when Neelix and Kes become engrossed in soap operas!

Seeing how teenagers are dressed.
Tuvok: We could have just worn our uniforms. I doubt anyone would have noticed.

I don't know. I find that a bit judgmental, considering that Tuvok may have seen many an alien dressed in stranger fashion, I don't see why he made such disparaging remark which wasn't even isolated, Chakotay said something to the same effect about "interesting species". This made me feel kinda uneasy, like that episode's writers were a bunch of old farts instead of visionaries, as is the norm in Star trek productions in general...

To me, Tuvok has a sort of deadpan humor. Even though he doesn't mean it to come across as humor. Every decade has some horrible fashion.

The '90s were only 20 years ago. Hardly "ancient."

I meant that in regards to technology. The internet was just starting to be used by the public, it was rare to even own a computer! Not to mention the cell phones were huge and couldn't perform the tasks we use them for nowadays.

He is dry dry dry deadpan just like Spock was

Re: Welcome new Voyager fans!

I think most families owned a computer in 1995. One family, one computer that kids had to ask permission to use. Modems were 28,000 bps and AOL still charged by the hour and thought they could make themselves 'The internet'. And you could still sell a video game based on being fun without having to spend millions of dollars on cinematics. So basically the stone age.

And in all fairness to Tuvok, teenagers have looked ridiculous for decades.

I didn't start using a computer (in school) until 1997 and didn't own one until 2000. I guess everyone else was farther along than my family.

I got on the internet in 97 but had computers quite a few years before that.

I bought my first computer in the late seventies... Granted it was only a commodore 64* , but it seemed like a big deal back then... I used that computer for a slew of things. I got my first internet connection in 1987. Granted it was incredibly slow compared to now but it allowed me to send and receive E-mails, or the equivalent thereof.

It was a Vic 20 actually, I got the commodore a couple years later.

Re: Welcome new Voyager fans!

And now we can do all this and ten times more on our phones.

This makes me happy.

Re: Welcome new Voyager fans!

Maybe YOUR phone, I try to input a website on mine and I set an alarm for whatever time it is. Stupid Smartphone. Makes me wonder what Trek tech makes for screens that never scratch or get filled with salt or what ever. I'm glad I don't rely on emergency beam-outs or I'd be totally ******.

Re: Welcome new Voyager fans!

heh, okay you are right I cannot do an emergency beam out on my phone. I have a copy cat android style phone, nothing fancy. Every time I think of upgrading I end up thinking I'd be better off with a tablet and a crappier phone.

Re: Welcome new Voyager fans!

I use my iPhone for the internet a lot because I'm too lazy to turn on my computer. The one annoying thing is for some reason I can't post pictures/videos on here from my phone. I can on other forums, just not here.
