    The whole Bulletin Board is alive.

    I am liking this:
    and what is your take on how The Trek BBS has become alive???

    //not that it was not alive, just now it is really noticeable//

    I had stayed away from immersion into the forum because there was no focus *Think: I think we have found new life,..

    oh and keeping to the forum here --- isn't the thing with the giant bug thing ripper similar to something that ,..

    did with the dolphins just this time it seems much more ... scifi and quantum-esk I did not watch seaquest too much back then but there was the reminder there... yes>? no?

    Despite my Cadet status, I've been here for many years. Just made a new account after a long hiatus.

    What I like isn't so much that this place is humming with life, but that it's alive and no one has died yet.

    Seriously. Look at other Trek communities and they seem to be...tearing themselves apart with animosity and vitriol. And at least as far as I can tell, high tempers and deep passions here are (mostly) being tempered by longstanding relationships among posters, a great moderating team, and a significantly more pleasant kind of discourse than I've seen elsewhere.

    I like this new show a lot. That said, those here who don't like it seem generally to discuss their dislikes in a way leaves me still liking them as people. I could get a drink with you folks. Sure, there are times when things get heated. But if we can keep this up? And not be jerks to each other? And talk about what we liked or didn't? Well, damn. That seems pretty good.

    Oh, the topic? Right. I personally got total Dune vibes. Cheers.

    the dune folds of space was nahhh not comparable IMO
    we are talking about movement along quantum strings up and down the multiplexical like dimensions where anything ///// yes anything is possible but they could go in - a different direction with this but for now that is the vibe I feel - string theories and such.. ? on the subatomic, trying to make way for subspace(a totally fictitious world)

    When whoever it was that said it called Ripper the ship's navigator I nearly jumped, wondering if my dream of a non-humanoid regular may become a reality.

    But I somehow doubt it. He's unlikely a sentient being, and what's he supposed to do all series? Walk by in the corridors between jumps? ...unless they Darwin-fit him with a Universal Translator, but...I dunno...they'd have to get a pretty good voice actor and some amazing writing for the character to keep it interesting for seven years.

    I wonder if what ultimately sinks the spore-drive is that it requires the enslavement of such beings and unlike Captain Ransom, Starfleet proper is not about that.

    well I read this forum going back to the early 2000's but Discovery finally got me to sign up. I've enjoyed lurking here for ages. It's a good crowd.

    Alive is good. Star Trek on TV every week while alive, even better.

    Personally I'd not noticed the difference, save perhaps a concentration of the activity here in the Disc forum.

    Has there been an actual upsurge in traffic do we know?

    It's new Star Trek. Of course this forum would be more active.

    I have noticed some of the older series forums have become more active too, like the TNG forum. That's good when you come to the board and there's a lot of activity that you don't feel bored. It was a long 12 and a half years.

    I like this Forum a lot.

    I comment heavily on a news forum, which... gets.... tiresome. I mean its mostly politics which is a good exercise but politics gets nasty.

    I used to go to a lot but that forum went south, there is a dream theater forum that's pretty good, I've tried other forums

    but this is the most socially active, and open one. I dig this place a lot and hope it stays "alive" for a long time.
