Why don't you perform zazen, facing a wall?

Hey, in a hundred years they'll be wearing them to work.

It would be funny if the klingon lady that Clem Fandango was banging ends up chasing the discovery around bent on revenge, like Carrie Fisher in the Blues Brothers

Clem Fandango? Ha ha, gently caress. It is the same actor.

(yeah, I'm slow with catching up on this thread)

With tiny chunks of pointy metal on them, too.

My problem was that the tooth brushing scene had some fantastically clunky dialogue. Like, first draft placeholder text that is meant to be punched up in a later pass. If any of my screenwriting students had come up with that, Id be breaking out the red pen.

Yeah, and not the only example in that episode. I mentioned Michael raising the issue of the waterbear's health with Saru previously. It's got draft-itis all over the place.

Don't be scared, homie!


Kinda weird that they explicitly showed Michael using a holographic/computer mirror in the same ep (or was it the previous one?). Maybe the mirror in the toothbrush scene is also digital. Maybe the delay is just a computer glitch?

That bathroom mirror is the emergency backup mirror system for when the main holographic mirror matrix array goes down (which happens whenever there's a reflecton leak in the image reversal beam)

Ask me about the shitty opinions I have about Paradox games!


I'd consider myself a huge Trekkie and I'm still enjoying the show.

I love how Voq speaks as well, it's hilarious. His voice is so absolutely bizzare, I can't think of anyone who sounds like him. It's a bit like the Bane voice from Dark Knight Rises.

I also like everyone on the crew and don't understand the people hating the liuetenant or Michael's roommate. They're nice and the complaining about them arguing all the time seems bizzare.

But the new Klingons are rubbish. The spikey costumes look stupid and the new ships look stupid as well. It does remind me of JJ Trek to a degree with that. I'm totally fine with updating looks because technology is better. So make the Klingon makeup more extreme and have them all speak Klingon all the time. That's good and I like it. But to completely and utterly change how they are (as others have said) you might as well just go for another race.
It being a prequel is poo poo too since it means we know for sure the spore drive fails at some point. Sure it's the journey rather than the end point that really matters but it still means they don't have a lot of room to do stuff.
I think the holographic communicator stuff is a bit stupid because TOS doesn't have it and it was such a huge deal when they had it for that one episode of DS9. I get why they've made the choice but I can't say I agree with it.

Like someone else said I wish there was more connection between this show and other Star Trek series, visually. So far there really isn't.
