  1. Interesting theory on Admiral Cornwell, https://www.inverse.com/amp/article/37820-star-trek-discovery-original-series-lethe-corwnell-theory
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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/
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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)
  9. 15 (!) years later...

    And I still can't figure out how to change my Rank back
  10. 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
  11. 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)

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

    I liked it overall. I tried to describe it to my friend as Star Trek meets Battlestar Galactica, with a sprinkling of Game of Thrones storytelling and some inspiration from JJ'verse on the aesthetic. Though I'm a fan of all of the above, so take that for what it's worth. The first 30 min of the first episode reminded me the most of the old trek, and the idea of Exploring the unknown and the majesty of space, I really liked it. My main point of pain through watching the episodes was how painful all the Klingon scenes were for me (Talking so.. Slow, and their voices sound obviously like they're wearing prosthetic teeth) Not to mention the retcons on the designs of their ships and uniforms (Really, how are we supposed to go from THIS to something resembling their ships in TOS in 10 years?) Overall though: I'm eagerly awaiting the next episode next week!
  15. Star Trek: Discovery

    Release Date: September 24th 2017 (We'll see! :P) http://www.startrek.com/article/star-trek-discovery-sets-premiere-date
  16. Anyone getting logged in as someone else?

    Same situation for me.
  17. 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.

  19. 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!
  20. 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!
  21. 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?
  22. 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?
  23. 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/
  24. 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?
  25. 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?
