Timo's Recent Activity

  1. Timo replied to the thread Were Hikaru Sulu and his daughter estranged?.

    Which is fine and well as an alternate take on the events, one at odds with the movie - but sort of takes away from the idea of a...

  2. Timo replied to the thread Theory why spore drive isn‘t used later on in Star Trek Universe.

    Then again, the mycelial network is available to an infinite number of cultures and critters. So surely somebody somewhere is always...

  3. Timo replied to the thread Were Hikaru Sulu and his daughter estranged?.

    Apparently so. But the novel nevertheless directly contradicts the movie, as described above. Timo Saloniemi

  4. Timo replied to the thread Does TNG depict the federation as a military dictatorship?.

    About thrice per sentence if the idea is to promote the US to outsiders. Which is what most of Trek dialogue on the UFP is all about......

  5. Timo replied to the thread Thoughts on a new timeline with a reimagined "modern" history?.

    We could always do the simplest possible delaying act, in which WWIII and Cochrane's garage project happen in 2073. Or, when the world...

  6. Timo replied to the thread Klingon change for season 2?.

    Ah, but that wasn't Kirk's tomb. There's no way in hell old man Picard could have dragged the body up that mountain even if he somehow...

  7. Timo replied to the thread Just how old is Capt Pike? (based on 1 line in Saints of Imperfection).

    No, Pike did not need to be the same age for that reason. I can drink alcohol with my grandfather easily enough. That Pike would have...

  8. Timo replied to the thread when did TOS take place, 23rd century or 22nd century.

    Indeed, the "absence of evidence" tirade is just Scientific Lies for Children at heart. In the real world, statistical evidence is all...

  9. Timo replied to the thread Spoilers DSC Starships and Technology - Season Two Thread.

    ...It would be fun to be able to tell for certain, reference by reference, whether there are 135 or so lifesigns aboard, or just 135...

  10. Timo replied to the thread Would Voq/Tyler still have a Klingon lifespan and live till the 24th/25h century?.

    But we now learn (if we didn't previously already) that this is a stereotype: Klingons come in all colors, and some have advanced...

  11. Timo replied to the thread Just how old is Capt Pike? (based on 1 line in Saints of Imperfection).

    Mendez must always have been saying that Pike was Kirk's age, not that Pike is Kirk's age. That's the very point of the discussion -...

  12. Timo replied to the thread Holographic Technology in Discovery.

    Ah, right. Except it was vice versa - Chancellor Azetbur was on a viewscreen in Paris, while President Ra-Ghoratreii was a hologram...

  13. Timo replied to the thread Gary Seven, the Aegis and the Red Angel.

    All-new, hopefully, yes - because otherwise we'd have to explain how the future heroes Kirk, Picard and Sisko are ignorant of these...

  14. Timo replied to the thread Spoilers Star Trek: Discovery 2x05 - "Saints of Imperfection".

    The one in "New Eden" appeared on the skies of that planet right when the adventure took place, not 50k years prior. Unless it did...

  15. Timo replied to the thread Theory why spore drive isn‘t used later on in Star Trek Universe.

    Isn't that the bread and butter of watching Trek, though? Klingons are always radically changing their appearance. Ships look different...
