You apparently have no idea what we are talking about if you think that applies...
Different point. @jaime was doing fine explaining why the other thing was wrong.
Speaking of the Defiant, I wonder how it would look like when and if they actually find it. Being over 100 years old, the wireframe we were shown may not necessarily reflect its current configuration. If the ship is the Palace Stamets mentioned, it could even be completely immobile now, transformed into a starbase with a chaotic hodgepodge of later additions everywhere. It could even be extensively remodelled on the inside too, offering an explanation if the sets don't match the TOS Connie interiors. We could perhaps get a glimpse of a corridor or '60s color schemes here and there, but probably not much more.
Why is anyone complaining. Trek did what Trek (and and drama) does. Couples, gay or straight suffer loss. One dies. They are in the business of danger. Have you not watched Trek in the last 50-something years?
Closely. Watched fifty years of heteronormative Star Trek where even gelatinous goo beings are strictly male/female. Watched main character couples, rare as they are, get whole dedicated episodes, blossom into marriages, pregnancies and only ending when an actor asked to leave the show. Trek doesn't show brutal murder in its couples, as a rule. And it doesn't do homo. You can't see why people would be disappointed those two things debuted together.
there was a TNG episode with a genderless race.
This is my favourite scenes in this the episode.
Actually he was wrong about pretty much everything.
Sigh. Imagine you are sat on the Defiant, and survive the Tholian web. Also for the purpose of this idea, imagine you are Immortal. Now. You are sat there from the day they build it...how does it look to you? Each day ticking into the other. Is it the same as how it looks to someone looking at it from the outside, as we the audience are, following the Defiant from TOS, back in time and across universes to the MU in Ent, still in the MU now in discovery...and in the hypothetical other suggested, should it cross back to the Main Universe.
You can ignore all the discussion about seconds and whatnot as it’s irrelevant to the topic.
If it helps think of other time travel stories, lie, Back to the future, where we follow one dude across his own personal timeline. They make it more explicit.
Yeah I know. Although that was meant to be TNG's 'gay episode' it was still heteronormative, with a male/female pairing. It was, probably unintentionally, an interesting early presentation of trans issues on TV and I retain a lot of love for it for that reason. But it still didn't manage a gay couple.
But have we all forgotten the cogenitor?
Another observation, they use the TOS version of the Mirror salute in DSC, with an open palm. ENT used a fist
easy - hoshi simply hates any kind of fisting there are indeed two or three things you can do when you are the actual empress
I know what you're saying Jamie, it's just not accurate.
And I already explained to you what was.
Each new Emperor probably makes the logo (and even the salute) whatever they want it to be.
Hoshi is not a distant relation to Arnold Judas Rimmer.
Oh thanks... Way to remind me that I now live in a universe where Biff Tannen is President of the United States.
Hey now, Rimmer's salute is classiest salute ever.
Watching TNG's 'Parallels', Voyager's 'Living Witness', and wondering if there's any other alternate universe episodes Series-wide we've forgotten about.
Harrison Wells says that diagram needs more circles...
