I liked the one where Tasha had to marry that racist African tribal caricature

How the gently caress did that get made? Honestly, how do you get a bunch of black people to dress up in quasi-african costumes, act like savages, talk with really, really racist accents, and look through the camera and say, "this is happening!"

Semi-Related to the boob talk before, but there was some extra I think who was doing an interview about being on Star Trek and she said that pretty much every female extra had to throw a few socks in her top to fill out the uniforms. The future has managed to eradicate A cups.

It is not surprising since once they added her, she was the only character they actually wrote for.

That and the Doctor. I guess they figured those were the only two cast members who could actually act, so why not. Listening to Robert Beltram talk about his time on the show is hilarious. About how he was miserable and just kept asking for more money, hoping they would kick him off, but they just kept writing cheques.

Ok, someone post the picture of Robert Picardo getting annoyed with some autistic goon that pretty much told him all his cast-mates sucked. I can't find it.

What's with Star Trek and casting Asians? Seems that George Takei was the only one they got right.

Speaking of those two parter Blu Rays....


Before they released the Blu Rays for those they showed them in movie theaters and I forced my gf to go along with me to the Best of Both Worlds. Some guy came in late and set right next to us and looked like the most typical basement dwelling goon you can imagine. He was probably 300+ pounds and only wearing a regular shirt so half of his gut was hanging out from his shirt and he had sweat pants shorts (sweat shorts?) on. Whatever, I keep my focus on the screen because the Borg look cool as poo poo in HD.

Anyways, after it was over my gf said she was 100% sure the dude was playing with himself the entire time and she couldn't actually watch BoBW because she kept getting grossed out by the goon.

Another Aatrek spotting.

i borg is cool but the callback to it in descent is p bad.

also my favorite voyager borg thing is when they first realize the borg are even there. i think its some episode where belanna and maybe tom are in a cave together and belanna is in a bad mood

It was on some planet and they found some dead borg drones or something if I'm remembering it correctly. This was one of the 5-7 cool/well done things that happened in the entire run of Voyager.

Plot hole: Borg always collect their dead. That's what tipped off the crew about the Borg being weirdos in Descent. Why would there be a mummy Borg to find?

I imagine they understand the concept of "diminishing returns". . . which could be a good description of watching Voyager.

I've tricked many people into watching Voyager by explaining the character in a skin-tight cat suit with big titties gets the most screen time.

It's funny how Jeri Ryan (7 of 9) and Tricia Helfer (BSG) were only brought on as glorified eye candy for nerds, and both of them ended up being two of the strongest actors in their respective shows.

I like the Enterprise opening. The montage of humanity's transition from bumbling around with gliders to FTL starships is aspirational and hopeful, just like the cheesy power ballad playing in the background.

I guess if you're too cynical and jaded to appreciate that then you're going to get what you deserve want soon:

That klingon guy shouting shakespeare quotes is way more utterly stupid on rewatch than I remembered it being as a kid.

All of the Shakespeare stuff was a huge inside joke about Shatner and Plummer.

Back in the 50's Shatner was Christopher Plummer's understudy at Stratford. They were doing some Shakespearian play, and Plummer hurt himself (banging some chick) and couldn't go on stage, and that was one of Shatner's big breaks.

I'm not even sure it was so much of an inside joke (except maybe only between Shatner and Plummer) as it was the director being a huge fan of old British actors and giggling with glee at being able to film one really chewing the scenery with his favorite Shakespeare quotes.

I think it was the ST:VI Blue Ray that had Nicholas Meyer saying he had heard about the story, and like you said, jumped at the chance to do it. He also said that when he got ST:II he wanted to turn it into "British Navy in Space", and tried to throw in as much Navy stuff as he could, (uniform changes, "running out the guns", boarding whistles, burial at sea, etc.). He also said that he saw Kirk as Horatio Hornblower, and used every bit of creative control he had to make it STII: Master and Commander.

Mr. Horrible posted:

I really disliked most of that movie tbh. Knockoff Khan and Whose Shoes Are They Anyway in particular. But I enjoyed the beginning and the ending, as well as the fact that it was so optimistic about the future. No more war with the Klingons!

I honestly don't know what to say. It's tied for ST:II as the best trek in my book.

There are too many Star Wars EU fans in here.

Every line and throw-away joke has to have some sort of hilariously improbably backstory that lets the autistic fans take it exactly at face value instead of using their brains.

My favorite episode is when the Enterprise picks up a bunch of Irish people and the show keeps reiterating that Irish men are drunk and lazy and Irish women are whores

And it wasn't some sort of alien race that talks with Irish accents, they were the descendants of an all-Irish colony ship. They had to be rescued because they were just too drat stupid to keep society running and then they got deposited on some world full of people who basically couldn't figure out how to sex

That episode gives us Riker's best pickup line.

Maybe the worst part of that scene (besides the fact that it's a freaking joystick) is that it's mounted in a column that just comes up in the middle of the bridge, nowhere near the Captain's chair or any other one. So whoever uses it has to remain standing "arcade style".

I forget, but did the episode end with Tuvok and Neelix telling Janeway that shes hosed up? It really should have, and then for the rest of the show they both have a better understanding of eachother, with Neelix toning the whole "lol Vulcan no smile lololol" and Tuvok on occasion paying a bit of lip service to the 'moral boosting' that Neelix likes to do.
