    I don't know, sometimes entire episodes of TNG go by and little or nothing happens on the ship. Or elsewhere. ;)

    I have to point out: Boimler and Rutherford immediately stopped and asked if Mariner was OK after noticing she had been hurt. She…Didn’t!

    Thanks! Obviously I was remembering the rumors from the 80s.

    Just put Jon Benjamin in a hairpiece. Almost every other character looks like a good deal their voice actor (except Pam) that most of them could have played their counterparts in a live-action Archer, including the late, great Jessica Walter.

    Yeah, I was surprised to learn that Chris Parnell wasn't the model for Cyril.

    It was original, light on the fan service.

    9/10 :) :techman:

    I actually thought I had heard before that it WAS the case, and that all of the resemblances were done with a possible live-action appearance in mind.

    And generally, if your opponent barfs all over himself and screams for you to stop, you kind of need to stop.

    It's a cartoon. In cartoons, things are always exaggerated. It wouldn't have gone that far in live-action.

    Very true. "Lower Decks" is actually more of a parody fanfiction than a serious Trek story. Otherwise, Boimler would be a section 8 and Mariner would be in the brig. And her mom would probably have been relieved of command.

    Having written quite a few similar parody fics, I know the signs.

    You are entitled to your opinion, of course, but it's going to take a lot of convincing for me to regard "Lower Decks" as a "serious" Trek story.

    It's not serious Trek, it's a comedy. Just because it's a comedy does not automatically make it a parody.
