Re: Avengers: Endgame - Trailer

Insofar as day-to-day manifestations, Captain Marvel is certainly flashier than Thor, who stays with the basic "bruiser with a bludgeon", coupled on occasion with some lightning for cosmetic effect. This is true particularly now, when Thor has been for all intents and purposes emasculated during Jas...

Re: Avengers: Endgame - Trailer

I hope Captain Marvel is great, but I'm annoyed that they're saying she's going to be more powerful than Thor.

I must be a chauvinist. :roll:

Re: Is anyone role playing?

In the meantime I've spent probably $500 on dice anyway because ... I'm clearly insane. Good for you. I'm opaquely insane. Now partially recover your sanity by making a gift of one or two metallic dice sets to your friend Joe, who's not quite so loony or fluid as to spend like that, but loves dice ...

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

Gentlemen ... I think you've had your say. I can see both sides, here. Michael, I wager, is nearing the point where he'll be forced to lay the smack down and issue warnings. Let's give him a pleasant surprise and just ... walk away. A final point: Sometimes what one person loathes about something is...

"What is meant" and what is properly executed are horses of such different colors that one is practically a zebra.

My point stands, whether you like it or not.

Re: Star Trek Discovery - Season 2

I thought Worf implied the [t]ribbles proved to be an ecological menace? That would have meant they would have survived and gone on to live on a number of different worlds. :roll: I was talking about those particular tribbles, not the tribbles as a race. Or do you think Koloth said, "Aw ... they do...

Star Trek is the show where sometimes you beat the enemy by finding out their scheme and then beaming all the pesky little tribbles onto their ship before they jump into warp... :-s That was one of the most myopic and cruel endings a Trek episode ever had. The Klingons disintegrated every one of th...

Re: All things considered ...

Agreed. I have a young NCO punch out a joined Trill for her pomposity in one of my novelettes from Tales of the 13th Fleet.

Re: Prime Timeline isn't part of the Original Cannon?

I got bored earlier on than you did, and didn't come close to finishing either video. Evidently my attention span is waning along with my enthusiasm for Trek . I don't understand why anyone thinks a conspiracy is necessary, though. CBS owns this shit. They can do whatever they want ... and they're g...

Marta Dubois, RIP

Just learned that Ms. Dubois, who played a "flim-flam artist" posing as the demon queen Ardra with such splendid, gleeful enthusiasm in Star Trek: The Next Generation 's classic episode "Devil's Due", passed away at the age of 65 on May 8, 2018. Ms. Dubois possessed tremendous talent and uncommon be...

My most recent review of Discovery

In answer to a question about the consensus from Trek fans on the show's quality at another forum, I wrote: From what I’ve read and heard, there’s no consensus. I’ve gotten perspectives from intelligent and discerning fans on both sides of the issue: Some think it’s an abomination and a travesty tha...
