    I take it the Enterprise A wouldn't have any part of the Enterprise since the ship blew up, and then the planet it crashed on also blew up.

    Haha, although for some reason I seem to remember them making that reference. Maybe that's just in my head. lol

    Mariner did rather the opposite in noting how much more attractive Spock was than she expected. Well of course, she expected Nimoy. Cute in-joke there. :lol:

    Which is odd considering Aenar Hemmer was a modification of DSC design.
    Must be from a different part of the planet

    The pin up joke must be a reference to Rebecca Romijn's pin up career when she was a model.

    I thought they're gonna go to the museum and grab a piece of the NX-01 for a moment :D

    Jadzia Dax had a similar reaction to seeing Spock in person.

    I mean, we all agree that it may be a recruitment poster, but Boimler is using it for other purposes--right?

    I like that the Enterprise crew got to geek over something like Mariner and Boimler did over them

    Similar, but also different

    This was brilliant!

    Especially since it hints at a nice little time loop in which Spock becomes less human because he needs to be in the future :D

    The quote Pelia told to Boimler sounded familiar

    So if TOS is “Those Old Scientists” and TNG is “The New Guys”, what would DS9 and VOY be?

    Well OK then. I'll post my thoughts before I read all 14 pages.

    I didn't think this would work out well as they are two different worlds; one "normal" and one, well, "silly" (but often fun). I couldn't see how LD would be able to integrate onto SNW without well - lowering SNW.

    Well that was wrong. Somehow, they pulled it off, to my amazement. Not only did they pull it off, they hit it out of the park.

    10/10 from me, my first.

    If the Enterprise-A was a new built ship, they could've taken something leftover from the refit of the 1701. God knows they'd certainly have lots of parts they replaced to choose from.

    I really like LD and I was very much looking forward to this episode, but unfortunately it didn't win me over.

    The LD style was said to be toned down, but the whole thing felt like a live action LD episode. It was a bit too much for me as an SNW one.

    Mariner and Boimler told almost all SNW characters way too much about their futures. I would have preferred if they acted a bit more normally around the SNW characters and were only goofing around full LD style when they were alone. Like in the brig for instance. :hugegrin: They should've been thrown in. :hugegrin:

    It was really funny though.

    But it keeps bugging me that Mariner and Boimler's futurespoilery yapping may have influenced multiple characters' career paths way too much. Could've worked as a hilarious episode without this.

    Better to not think about it, too many grandfather paradoxes.
