  2. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    Seems to me the "R" rating would be to distract people from the lack of an excellent plot with the presence of boobies and other "adult" stuff.
  3. 2017 Movie Megathread

    Batman v. Superman was awful.
  4. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    Film makers these days act like it's a holy grail to be allowed to make an R rated movie, people go all like "FINALLY MOVIE FOR US ADULTS" when a movie is announced that it will be R rated. Seriously are they so desperate to have swearing, sex and drugs in the films? How the hell does that make the film for adults. I'm perfectly fine with lower rated films, I don't need swearing and other "adult" stuff in a movie to be able to enjoy it more or feel like "this film was made for me!" It's enough for me that I get entertained, I don't need the film to feel more real because good lord the characters swear. So if you couldn't guess I don't care much for an R rated Star Trek film either. This sounds like yet another excuse for the film makers to make an infantile swearing and booby infested farce and call it an adult movie.
  5. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    I'm not enthusiastic about it, either. And if it means an abandoning of the PG/PG-13 Trek films, then I'm 100% against it.
  6. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    I know it's very, very early to be saying this, but I don't like the idea of an R-rated Star Trek movie. It's just not right.

  8. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    So now word is that Tarantino is requiring Paramount to OK an R rating if he's going to be involved, and they've reportedly given their approval. Not that this means the film will happen, but that he can proceed to a script, anyway. I might be able to stomach an R-rated film in the Trek universe that doesn't use familiar Trek characters (like DS9 was to TNG at the time), but I have no desire to see Kirk flinging f-bombs or the Enterprise crew involved in bloodsport. http://deadline.com/2017/12/quentin-tarantino-star-trek-r-rating-mark-l-smith-the-revenant-drew-pearce-lindsay-beer-jj-abrams-1202222161/
  9. Has it ever been stated why Q was so afraid of Guinan?

    Answer... Q is racist. Occam's Razor.
  10. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    I think I've seen one Quentin Tarantino movie, so I don't know what he's like as a director. Which means I don't know what to make of this news. I do wonder what it means for the rumored fourth movie in the current reboot series.
  11. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    http://variety.com/2017/film/news/quentin-tarantino-jj-abrams-star-trek-1202630524/ So now Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams are teaming up to pitch a story for the next Star Trek film. Click the link, but that's about as much detail as you'll find. They've pitched a story to Paramount. Tarantino is said to be a fan of TOS and I've read elsewhere that he considers "Yesterday's Enterprise" to be an excellent example of Star Trek and time travel on television. Tarantino is "considering" directing with Abrams as producer if, IF, Paramount buys the idea. No word on if this would be a continuation of the current film series or an offshoot in the same (or an alternate) universe.
  12. Has it ever been stated why Q was so afraid of Guinan?

    If it had been personal I don’t think she would’ve gone into a defensive stance. I think Q was trying to deflect attention from himself, knowing very little of her bond with Picard...That’s kind of the gulf between omnipotence and omniscience...
  13. The Son's of Mogh. the ending bothers me.

    Somewhere there’s an awesome sequel where he regains his memory and is so vengeful he becomes chancellor just so he can punish Worf. Technically I guess he could dissolve the House of Martok, and once again be the last son of Mogh.
  14. Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

    This week's episode of The Orville felt like a mashup of TNG's "Where No One Has Gone Before" and "Remember Me." I wasn't a fan of the ending. It felt like a cop out. I continue to watch all the DC shows on The CW. Even Supergirl, which it has gone off the rails this season. So boring to watch. Arrow feels very tired. Legends of Tomorrow is okay but nothing special. The Flash is maybe the best of the bunch and it's not great.
  15. Episode 9! This truly was a great episode! When I saw this scene, I was like YESSSSSSS!!!! HELL YEAH!!! EDIT: So there I was making dinner and I was thinking why would Lorca cause their jump to an alternate dimension. And it suddenly hit me! Either to find a another Federation willing to help them or find more advanced technology to defeat the Klingons!
  16. Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

    I'm watching The Orville and I too often play that game as well forst, but atleast it has more of a Star Trek feel, than Star Trek IMHO. Where is the sence of wonder, the social debate, the exploration... All Star Trek focusses on is war and drama (And that fine, but there a lot of shows out there that do it way better)?!? For instance the 7th Orville episode could easily have been a Trek ep. It made me think and rethink how I/we act and interact. Like Trek used to do. When I watch Discovery it's just 42 minutes of action and drama. It comes and goes. I haven't felt the need to discus any of the eps sofar on this forum. It's GoT but then in space and with worse actors, poor music...
  17. Haven't seen the 7the ep yet, but I do agree with Harry Kim concerning the Orville. This show has the old Trek feeling, tackling important cultural and social problems. The 7th episode is a good example of how our society functions today... As for the humour, sometimes it's a bit childish.
  18. Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

    I'm enjoying The Orville. I especially like playing the "Star Trek did it!" game while watching.
  19. Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

    It's been renewed for a 2nd season, so you're not alone. I've seen a few episodes. It tries hard, so there's that. I can't say it's must-watch TV, but I want it to be good.
  20. Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

    Orville... its cringy, predictable, cliche, and derivative. its also full of plot holes. its barely watchable in my opinion. but i have to admit that i have seen all the episodes to date.
  21. i think he's kind of awkward in person to person interactions, he would probably be the first to tell you that its not you, its him. don't take it personally. plus he has a lot of stories about being burned by the public, so i think hes generally gun shy as a defense mechanism. i've seen him in person about 4 or 5 times in the past 5 years or so at various game cons, but i've never approached him. i don't want to put him on the spot and make him feel like he has to interact with me, a perfect stranger to him. having said that, his online presence is excellent. online hes generally very supportive of everyone who reaches out to him, and he seems to genuinely care about his fans and our shared interests. i've sent him about 4 or 5 short comments over the past 5 years or so, and hes responded to almost all of them. pretty cool to be able to interact with him directly through the internet. he's very accessible online.
  22. Episode 7 watched! Wow, wow and wow! I am also watching the Orville and it's latest episode is also no. 7. And that was also wow, wow and wow! It looks like both shows have hit their stride! Even though Star Trek Discovery no longer has the optimistic feel of the old Trek, the 'drama' approach they're taking is producing some excellent episodes, and episode 7 is the highlight so far. Meanwhile Orville fills in my need for some of that good old optimistic future sci fi show, it's episode 7 was excellent, it's basically Star Trek in all but name, but less serious and with humour added in.
  23. Well if Voq is Tyler, he certainly is a good actor if he's willing to go so far to kiss a human to cover his identiy, the possibilty of a sleeper agent is still there. But Discovery contines to make me somewhat sceptical of the Voq is Tyler theory, but I'm still not ruling it out, this show has a tendency to surprise at every turn. And Disacovery didn't waste much time (pardon the pun) to do a time loop episode. Star Trek why must you always mess with temporal laws?
  24. Quite enjoyed "Lethe" and its deep immersion into Sarek's psyche. Possibly now the essential Sarek story.
  25. Interesting theory on Admiral Cornwell, https://www.inverse.com/amp/article/37820-star-trek-discovery-original-series-lethe-corwnell-theory
  26. I for one am going to give Lorca the benefit of the doubt for now. I've so far been proven wrong on so many occasions by this show that I really am just going to sit back and see where they take this. I'm though more curious how these logic extremist vulcans can defend their alleged superiority by bombing a learning center to kill a child and I don't care it if is a human child. I have a feeling they are beeing a little more emotional about the subject than they care to admit.
  27. I see no reason why Lorca couldn't be from the Mirror Universe, but just cos he acts differently doesn't mean he is either. I don't think his that 'savage', like others are saying. His just been through a lot and that can change any person's personality. Like soldiers returning from war with PTSD. As for him trying to get Admiral Cornwall killed to prevent her from relieving him, that did cross my mind. Or maybe there's nothing to it either. Maybe he realised that just fighting for survival only to lose the good things that make the Federation what it is, isn't worth it. He doesn't want to lose Cornwall's friendship or his ship and decides to rein in his behaviour. On the other hand, I don't think anyone's under any illusions, this maybe a trap. But they must chase any avenue for peace. Maybe Lorca figures if the good Admiral gets to go through some pain on a personal level from the Klingons, instead of 'sitting in a office', then she'll come around to his point of view. Also by asking for authorisation instead of just going after her, it'll make Cornwall realise that when lives are at stake, i.e. her life, waiting for slow mo Starfleet to authorise rescue, means more suffering for the people waiting for rescue. By experiencing this on a personal level, it'll make the Admiral realise Lorca has a valid point.
