So rabbit's foot are made from Tribbles.
I wish they had made an Outrageous Okana spinoff show. I loved that guy. It was cool to see him on Lower Decks again.
Do you think a first time Trek viewer could watch the whole thing in chronological order -- Enterprise, The Cage, the first two seasons of Discovery, Strange New Worlds, Section 31 movie?, the original series, the animated series, the TOS movies, etc. -- and have it all make sense? They'd also get the callbacks and references in reverse, which could be trippy.
Beginning with the scene from VOY where Quinn takes them to the big bang, continuing with the scene from AGT on ancient Earth as life was supposed to form...
No. Honestly, I think it would just confuse a new viewer.
Going with the order the series were made makes much more sense.
Going in chronological order might raise too many questions.
Depends on how much the viewer really cares
A thread full of interesting observations and memes. Huh, I'm glad I found it.
Is it just me or do they do something weird with the interior Enterprise lighting on SNW that makes their eyes (especially Pike) always look teary or wet or something?
Maybe it's your tv?
I'm just glad you can actually see their eyes in this show.
Is it wrong that I laugh every time I watch the transporter accident scene in ST: TMP? I know it's a serious moment and meant to be taken seriously but the way the scene is done is weirdly funny to me. Maybe I have a sick sense of humor or something? I guess part of it is because after the new science officer dies in said accident it's as though no one really cares for the rest of the movie lol. It reminds me somewhat of this scene from the movie Addams Family Values:
It was kinda over the top, an interesting new Vulcan officer we had never seen before, a character that could have gone on to appear many times, and even in the TNG era. But no, they had to have him die in that strange transporter accident in the next scene....
I'm thinking not. It's definitely a production design "warm lighting" style type thing
I guess I'm the only one noticing it
It's just kind of jarring to me when it looks like Pike is always on the verge of tearing up lol. It doesn't ruin anything. I'm still enjoying the show actually. It's just part of the overall look, which I'm mostly liking.
The scene is framed very poorly. It's meant to show danger but then moves to indifference.
I don't find it amusing but I can see how it would be.
To me, it's kind of like the reuse of a Voyager establishing shot for another Intrepid in DS9. Starfleet didn't mourn Voyager's loss long it seems.
"What You Leave Behind" did leave the door open for Sisko to return. Granted, they haven't used it so far, and by now they'd need another actor...
Don't forget to fold in "All Our Yesterdays" ice age scenes from 5000 years before TOS was set.
Teh Sisko is more of a religious figure. Try him next time. The Bajorans must have a Prophets Day.
The way Duras calls days "Turns" gets on my nerves a little bit. That and the way the actor is struggling past his fake teeth to say it is rather obnoxious (Which works well with the character actually) But I mean, we get it dude. We all drive spaceships in this universe. I'm pretty sure we all know how planetary rotation works, & no one else is saying it like that. Just you, Bro.
The worst part is that just a few scenes later everyone's making fun of McCoy for being scared of the transporter, as if they didn't just watch it turn two people into sludge.
