Do you have a link?
It's common knowledge which everyone else knows.
Even though he was so reluctant to get back on the bridge I still love him.
Loved his fake respect speech to 7 and his fuck what happened last season dig.
Shaw had good scenes in No win sceneario and his back story and why he doesn't like Picard was a real suprize.
He's an asshole, but he's "our" asshole..
I understand him better after this week’s episode. Still an asshole though. He has a lot of issues he needs to work through.
I really like him and hope he survives.
Love this guy, and with all the ‘Chicago’ shows on the air; Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chicago PD there now needs to be Chicago Dipshit.
Don't come in.
I love Captain Shaw the more the season goes on
Stashwick and Ryan play so well off each other.
Should we get a Titan show, I would be good with her staying as his XO in an odd couple type situation. An uneasy alliance of sorts.
I'm wondering where Starfleet would fall when it comes to putting someone who is compromised in command, particularly if he's a problem enough to have a record on his past and it's basically been flagged that he has Wolf 359 PTSD.
Or maybe it's a bunch of Vulcan Admirals who believe that human trauma is a key contributor to good captains and are running a great social experiment. lol
It's Starfleet. If they didn't promote compromised people to captain how would they ever become compromised admirals.
let’s not forget, yes he’s a ships Captain. But from the descriptions of the Titan it doesn’t appear to be a front line “major” ship like the Enterprise or a little butt kicker like the Defiant. It’s closer to an explorer ship like Voyager or the Equinox.
so putting a Captain with PTSD with an XO that used to be a Borg (and that command was forced to give a commission too by two influential Admirals) is lower risk, high reward.
Which was complimented by Nog going through a lot of character growth. It's also nice that his path to being a lieutenant did not happen overnight.
If Aron were still alive I do wonder what would've happened if it had been Nog's ship that Picard and Riker hijacked instead of Shaw's. Nog was always portrayed as a little starstruck (thus his sudden eagerness to join Red Squad and his bizarre deference to them in Valiant even though he outranked all the Red Squad people there)
The Jurati Borg faction storyline was completely glossed over to the point that Shaw's Borg hatred should've referenced Seven and Picard's support of them just canonically three months before Season 3, but it seems like this season other than the inclusion of Raffi is ignoring the past 2 seasons entirely.
I think it was Behr in the DS9 doc that says this and I agree. Nog has maybe the greatest character arc in all of Star Trek.
- Can we talk?
- Officially? No.
My comment will probably get criticism but Nog is what I remember Trek's character development being like and not what we seemingly get now where characters suddenly act wildly out of character or regress in some fashion and we're told it's in the name of character development.
Could be worse. I mean, just look at the Star Wars "sequels"...
