    Good thing Kelvin Sulu also had fencing skills.

    And he brings along his compactable sword, that's some real advanced technology to make a Sword Transform into a compact pocketable size.

    Yeah, I like Trek 2009 and a whole lot but a few of the weapons and tools are just f'ing stupid-looking.

    Who brings a sword to a phaser fight? I mean... really.

    *I too also love 09. It's my second favorite Trek movie after TMP.

    Once it clicks into place Sulu's sword is badass. But the modular, building-block technology is one of the things I don't like about a few of the devices we've seen in DSC and the Short Treks. Sometimes a simple sword is the best one.

    Yeah, but Worf also charges into the battle screaming "Today is a good day to die!", so....

    And Spock and Kirk used anti-gravity hand to hand combat techniques. It's a rare instance of practical application but some times it works out. Swords or fists.

    Having to assemble your sword's blade in real time doesn't lead to very strong swords compared to ones that are already properly prebuilt as a sword IMO.

    Mine either. Don't care because it works well in the movie.

    Even Super Sentai managed to figure out how to bring weapons elegantly onto screen.

    They have Mini Transporter Pods on their shoulder rigs that they can summon their weapons and various equipment from.



    I'm surprised that Star Trek hasn't copied this idea.

    Star Trek even has made Houdini Mine's that float around in Subspace, they can easily make a floating arsenal / equipment rack that transports the equipment to the user nearby while having the equipment rack hide in SubSpace, waiting for commands.

    Even with Uhura, there's not much to contradict.

    Khan seemed to prefer to be called "Khan". Everyone called him that. I think the Nooniens and Singhs of the world are safe.

    Practically every Klingon who ever appeared once bat'leths were introduced. This sort of thing is happening in the Marvel movies too and to some extent was in Shang-Chi where battles were fought with melee weapons instead of guns: what I've personally dubbed "Wakanda syndrome", named after how the super-advanced Wakandans in Black Panther decided to fight their civil war hand to hand for some reason.

    In real life, but this is super-futuristic sword design. Probably just as sharp and solid as any prefab sword.

    It has more to do with the way that their swords / hand axe assembles like Inspector Gadget tools.

    Instead of one solid chunk, they assemble in lots of little pieces with some form of connector between the parts.

    Sulu's sword looks like your typical Box Cutter Utility knife with break off segments that just assemble from the hilt "Go Go Gadget Style".

    The Romulan Mook's Hand-Axe has Blades that pop out of no-where and assemble to be a one-handed double sided axe.

    -_-

    This sounds very un-Star Trek.

    Not really, it's all about re-using existing tech in new and different ways.

    In DS9, you have the TR-116 rifle that can teleport a bullet through walls.

    Having a small SmartPhone sized device that functions as a small item transport pad / projector should be easy.

    Imagine having to only carry a Leather like shoulder rig and mount the device to your shoulder.

    Press a few buttons and you can summon whatever item you have in your Equipment Locker that you prepared.

    If you're out on a long term mission, you can make your Equipment Locker/Box/Room float in subspace and follow you around and transport things to you as needed.

    The Dominion literally made Houdini Mines that hide out in Subspace and pop out to blow up and kill a target.

    Why can't we repurpose the "hiding out" in Subspace to hold your personal equipment locker that floats around and follows you around if you're on a long term away mission that is planet side and you have no Orbital support from any StarShips or Shuttles?
