There are ONLY upswings since Rom is Nagus
Let's not even get started on the wonders the Ferengi's "Friendly Helper Android" line did for the Ferengi economy after the Federation synth ban.
The Ferengi think of ear rubbing as porn. You get worse than that on Disney channel.
Yeah, I read the Federation "Only After Marrage" movement had an issue when it got to Ferrenginar because Ferengi youth PREFERED sex in the ear...
(Thank you...thank you...I'm here (hear) all week )
The Ferengi have business operations on Earth and in Boston. I'd say the Ferengi Alliance is having a business boom unprecedented in recent history.
interesting. since Luxembourgish stems from a different German dialect (Moselfränkisch) and is heavily influenced by French, while PD stems from the German dialect Pfälzisch with heavy English influences. They probably sound very different.
That's what I was going for I think. General Zod lol..i registered 18 years ago so I dont really remember!
Yeah let me take that back. I dont despise it. I will watch season 3. I just have been disappointed with the writing. If I despised it there is no way I would keep watching. Lol
hatewaching is a thing all the cool kids do nowadays, or so it seems
I've noticed that trend on yourube especially. Some channels like doomcock watch it to attack and get more viewers for the channel. It's so strange to me.
Nothing to do with the current conversation, but the episode. I think the only person Seven killed was Bjayzl. When she's shooting her guards, the rifle's pulses are blue, while the pulse she fires at Bjayzl is red, and she goes poof.
Also the guard's weapons were also shooting red, and I think they were trying to kill her.
I appreciate that they have colour coded the kill and stun, makes easier to follow for the viewers. I always though that this is how it should work.
one would think so...
Beams need to be seen more often with hand phasers and phaser rifles. They were the standard for Starfleet sidearms with rare exceptions from 1964 until 2005. Pulses and bolts seem more Star Wars-like than Trek, but to each their own.
The Phaser rifles fired pulses in DS9, Voyager and the TNG movies. Though in Voyager and DS9 they sometimes fired beams, it seemed to depend on the model of phaser.
My main beef is with all the Discovery hand phasers. They followed the Kelvin Timeline phaser bolt aesthetic.
And here I thought it was because Alex Kurtzman watched the "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" cartoon series back in the 1980ies. Hey, the more you know...
A side of RJ I don't think I've seen before. Regarding TNG, though, it's none too flattering for protagonists to constantly brag about how great they are.
As to the "merchandise" argument, it hardly supports your point, since, by definition, that stuff is geared at the hardcore fan already, not the "proverbial man on the street."
But, as to your larger point, I'll concede that a very strong case can be made for it and it's arguably impossible to truly quantify. There certainly are aspects of TOS that are quite ingrained into the pop culture that far eclipse any other Trek that's come after.
Yup. If an actor wears something to look more "alien", but the entire audience literally doesn't notice....did it actually happen?
