  2. Anyone getting logged in as someone else?

    Same situation for me.
  3. Star Trek: Discovery abbreviation?

    At first I thought the title was Star Trek Discovery Aberration, thought it was quite fitting! Anyways, I am on board with DSC as well. STD is an unfortunate pairing of letters for a Star Trek show, and because of that it will most likely be the one people use who don't like the show.
  4. OL Chats 2003

    I was looking through some of my old files the other day and I found these old transcripts from the OL Chats we used to have on AIM. I found copies for October, November and part of Dec 2003, careful some of the content is a little bit cringe worthy! ( I was a lot younger then, haha) Enjoy! OL Chat - October 2003 OL Chat - November 2003 OL Chat - December 2003 (Partial)

  6. Anyone getting logged in as someone else?

    It's been happening for me for the last week or so. It might be an issue with the SQL database returning the wrong information, but I haven't played with BBoards before Let's roll the dice and see if this comes out as me!
  7. 15 (!) years later...

    Back in the day when I went by 'Captain_Helburn'.... That was so long ago, I've grown a lot since then!
  8. Where is the TOS Engine Room?

    Trekyards brings up an interesting question, where is Main Engineering on the USS Enterprise? I've always imagined the Engine room should be in the Secondary Hull, and then he pulls out a set of Blueprints signed by Gene Roddenberry which throws that out the window! Thoughts?
  9. Hello!

    Hey it's you! It's been a long time! I also dropped off the side of the earth for quite a few years until I rediscovered the bookmark in the "old Bookmarks" section of my browser! Life is great, start a new job next month. How has life treated you?
  10. Star Trek: Discovery

    Some Actor Fluff pictures from on set in Toronto. (Non-Spoilery) http://trekmovie.com/2017/03/17/star-trek-discovery-cast-and-crew-tease-behind-the-scenes-photos/
  11. Star Trek: Discovery

    I've heard rumours that the new series may be in the form of an Anthology series, with each season being dedicated to a different story (and era?) Has anyone been able to collaborate that?
  12. I'll start with a site that I've used for many years, http://www.ninite.com - recently reinstalled your OS? getting tired of hunting down all the .exe and .msi files? ninite takes care of that for many commonly used programs. Another good one is, http://noexcuselist.com/ - a great list of places to go learn how to do things! Want to learn Art or Coding but don't know where to start?
  13. The Expanse

    Hey, has anyone else watched this series? Last year I watched the first episode without knowing what I was getting into and was pleasantly surprised! Some of the things in the show that pleased me was how much detail was put into the universe in relation to ship physics and with building a living breathing solar system. Ships don't magically start and stop in space, inertia is a real thing, when accelerating the crew has to strap into crash couches and take drugs to keep awake, and when they are almost at their destination they have to flip the ship around and accelerate in the opposite direction to stop the ship. The entire show takes place in the Solar system and there are Two major powers and a Third minor Power, Earth, Mars and the Belt. Earth acts like the Old Guard, it will do anything to keep things in line with their goals, even if that means destroying a protesting mining station to make a statement. Mars is a newer Power, having overthrown Earths rule, whole generations had been dedicated to terraforming Mars, but soon realized they needed to build a technologically superior Navy to keep Earth in check. The Belt is where all the water and materials from the Outer Planets get funneled into and then shipped out to Earth and Mars, there is growing unrest in the Belt due to the rationing of water, food, and increasing taxes from Earth and Mars. After watching the first season I went out and bought the Book series, the show was very true to the book (with some changes to make it a TV Series), and I would recommend the book to anyone looking for a new Sci-Fi series to dig into. How about you? Have you watched The Expanse? What has been your experience?
  14. Star Trek Academy Experience

    Hey guys, been a while since I've been here! It's been a couple years, lots has happened! In short, went to school (For IT Tech), got married, and been working in IT for the last 5 years. Last summer we went on a road trip to Ontario, and while we were in Ottawa there was the Star Trek Academy Experience exhibit going on at the Aviation and Space museum. Here are a few photos of the exhibit, Google Drive
  15. The Expanse

    Yes, Second season started in January, it picks up right after the end of season one.
  16. Share your favourite Websites

    Yea, Checking Twitter and reddit? Time to grab the popcorn! Another website that I've used to compare parts and pricing when building computers is, http://pcpartpicker.com/
  17. Star Trek: Discovery

    Two new actors, Jason Isaacs (AKA, Lucius Malfoy) as captain of USS Discovery, and Mary Wiseman as a Starfleet Academy cadet. http://www.startrek.com/article/discovery-adds-two-more-cast-members Thoughts: I thought that the Captain of the Discovery was out of the picture and that "Number One" took over command. I guess that early on everything changes fast!
  18. Arrow-verse discussion

    I watch all three series every week (Filmed in Vancouver! Woo!) Great entertainment and all, but sometimes I just have to shake my head at how stupid some of the characters are, IE; Flash is the fastest man alive, but when fighting a Super smart Gorilla, runs straight for him and gets knocked out... Don't get me started on all the Paradoxes on Legends lol.
  19. 2017 Movie Megathread

    Kong sorta flew under my radar! I only saw the first trailer and then totally forgot it was coming out. I'll probably end up going see it too. The trailers make it sound better than the last one!
  20. How do I go about changing my Rank flair from Jedi knight back to Trek rank?
  21. Rank Change

    Roger! Thanks.
  22. 2017 Movie Megathread

    Not on the list, but I went and saw John Wick 2 at the beginning of the month. I quite enjoyed it, takes what they built on in the first movie and runs with it. Looking forward to seeing Logan sometime in the next week!
  23. Yo, Hello, Yo

    I don't come here often enough. But if there's Ale involved...
  24. 2014 Movie Megathread

    I wasnt a fan of how they did Electro in Spidey 2, seemed pretty cringeworthy to me. I'm looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy next month
  25. NASA working on warp drive

    I read that this is a bunch of Mathematicians creating theoretical hulls that could withstand those speeds Still pretty cool stuff.
