  1. 2018 Movie Megathread

    Honestly, I'm a bit skeptical of the new Pacific Rim. LOVED the first one, but the trailer I saw for the new movie just threw me off, it doesn't look nearly as gritty or dark as the first one, and that's what really drew me in to the first movie.
  2. Canadian Star Trek 50th Anniversary Stamps

    My mom saved me a couple when she received a couple letters with them on it, they're pretty awesome!
  3. Merry Christmas 2017!

    Jumping on the Late bandwagon! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I bought myself two new Star Trek calendars from Amazon, a monthly 'Ships of the Line' one and a daily one featuring quotes or notes from all the various shows/movies. Here's to a better 2018!
  4. Interesting theory on Admiral Cornwell, https://www.inverse.com/amp/article/37820-star-trek-discovery-original-series-lethe-corwnell-theory
  5. And apparently there was an article written about this theory too from two weeks ago, https://www.inverse.com/article/37223-star-trek-discovery-mirror-univese-lorca-spock
  6. I have been thinking about this theory which I came up with over my lunch break; after watching this weeks latest episode (S01E06 Lethe). What if our Lorca is from the Mirror Universe? We know that he used to be in command of the USS Buran, and that ship blew up and killed everyone except Lorca. What if our Lorca crossed over from the mirror universe while on the Buran. He might have been figured out by the crew and in his escape blew up the ship and the REAL Captain Lorca to cover his secret and then assume the identity of Captain Lorca in this universe, reporting to Starfleet Command as Lorca that they were ambushed by the Klingons and all hands were lost. Mirror Lorca then goes on to take command the only ship in Starfleet that he knows of that could possibly take him back to his own dimension, via the Spore Drive, and he needs Burnham for some reason in this scheme as well (The "Bring her back, or don't return at all" scene). Mirror Lorca acts against what everyone would assume a Starfleet captain would act like, he's aggressive, goes against Starfleet Command often, lies to get what he wants, he guilt trips his crew by playing the dying miners over the PA in order to force them to work harder, he has an entire study dedicated to war and weapons. We also find out that he sleeps with a phaser in his bed and that he has one tucked into the small of his back (Last scene of this episode). Admiral Cornwell also noted after their night together that he seemed like an entirely different man, and when she was about to get him kicked out of his Captain seat and send him to a psych evaluation he (allegedly, Not too clear on this one) disables her phaser and then suggests for her to take over on the dangerous mission to meet with the Klingons (Which he must have deduced is a trap), then when she is captured he refuses to go rescue her. What are your thoughts? Does this theory hold up to closer scrutiny?
  7. Found this on a reddit post today in r/startrek. It appears that this guy has an original first version of what would eventually become the Voyager theme song, fascinating.
  8. Here's a little interview with Jason ISaacs (Gabriel Lorca) Some interesting tidbits, https://trekmovie.com/2017/10/02/jason-isaacs-explains-lorcas-study-and-whats-up-with-landry-from-star-trek-discovery-ep-3/
  9. Anyone else try out 3D printing?

    We had a 3D printer at my old workplace (School), it was pretty neat. I printed out a Yoda face haha.
  10. I ran into him at PAX in Seattle once, he ignored me I bet he was tired of getting pestered by Star Trek fans all over the convention floor.
  11. Not to my Knowledge, I do know that Doyle, Daniel Jackson and Rebecca are still alive and well on Facebook land, as well as One of Thirteen (though he's gone incommunicado the last 5 years or so, doesn't go on the internet anymore as far as I can tell, but I know hes still kicking around cause he lives around the area)

    And I still can't figure out how to change my Rank back
  13. I liked this episode much more than the first two, this is great! After talking with some friends the idea came up that by the end of this series Captain Lorca will go off the deep end after trying to commit genocide (Using the Spores?) and at some point in his madness he will rechristen himself, Garth of Izar. Michael Burnham will be forced to have to make a decision whether or not to Mutiny once again; this time for all the right reasons, to stop a madman. (As a side note, He is super shifty and I highly suspect that he is hiding something. And that creepy collection he has in his study, a Gorn Skeleton, and keeping that giant tardigrade (water bear) from the USS Glen is kiiiiind of weird) Another subject that came up was, is the USS Discovery run by Section 31? I have my doubts to that theory, but my friend was drawing conclusions from the Black comm badges and the hush-hush of everything. He also said the Registry (NCC-1031) pointed to Section 31 too, but I think he was stretching that logic a bit. haha

    I was young then, and I'm still young! (Under 30!)
  15. DS9, but I happen to be only half way through TNG's second season, gotta watch them in Chronological order!
