    Star Trek Thread: Set Picard to Stun (spoilers)

    Seems that the point was of Rafi's side trek to see her son was to allude to more of what Maddox also alluded to: that Mars was a conspiracy. Was her son's wife, I assume wife, a Romulan ornament Vulcan? I can't tell the difference any more... I hope Seven is back for another episode or two, because otherwise her appearance feels like nothing more than fan service, no matter how great the performance, which was great... And if the show was going to do fan service, even while telling its story, that they should have surrounded Picard with a few more Trek veterans...skip Rios and have it be a disillusioned Tom Paris or Chakotay, have the Rafi character be someone from the old Enterprise D like Ensign Rager...keep Jurati, but have the Space Elf Ninja guy be Worf's kid instead...

    Star Trek: Picard

    Here's where I jump in and mention that David Mack did a post Nemesis trilogy of Novels (with other lead up stories by other authors) dealing with the Borg origins and how they were ultimately dealt with... linking a previously unknown super advanced civilization, the Columbia NX-02, time travel, and genocide...needless to say, it was humanity's fault... (Non canon of course!)

    I get that. But where is the rest of the Enterprise people? Riker and Troi would be on Titan, but to think they wouldn't be right there with Picard...and I cannot fathom Picard taking a promotion to Admiral and leaving the Enterprise for another vessel...it was the flagship after all... And I agree about the Klingons, but at the same time, Worf has exerted influence over the High Council in the past when it didn't always jibe with Klingon preferences, at least it seemed that way during their Civil War and the during the Dominion War. He did, after all, put Martok in the Chancellor seat. If Picard, through Worf, wanted Klingon help, I think he might have gotten it...

    Star Trek: Picard

    Isn't "big and epic" what's going on with Picard? And I don't totally disagree about the novels and what they did with DS9, but the backdrop of the stories and the cold war aspect of the line I think was a great idea and should have lent itself to episodic television adaptation, but also would have allowed for proper Trek exploration stories also... As for Picard, thinking it through some after episode three...I'm a bit irritated with the premise that ONLY Picard and this new XO of his wanted to save as many Romuland as possible. I get the tragedy of the Mars attacks, but to have absolutely everyone else in Starfleet, and the Federation, suddenly decide they can't do anything about it? Flying in the face of the characters we know. Riker and Troi? Bashir? Dax? Janeway? It doesn't track.

    QFT. But you can't go wrong with any mom and pop hot dog stand either.

    As long as we accept that my disdain for the writing of the Online chronology and story is purely my opinion, we'll be fine. The game design of the F is fine. It is. But if that design is going to be an easter egg like shout out in Picard, then let it be another ship. Not the Enterprise right now. I don't know if you even bring the Enterprise into the show right now, excepting they'll outsmart themselves and have it show up as a stinger in the season finale to have everyone speculate about it, kinda like Discovery did... I actually prefer the novel chronology, post-Nemesis. I think they did the best job pulling all the various threads of the series together into something larger and more cohesive. But again, my opinion.

    The museums are the way to go. Malnati's is tourist pizza. Good, but for the tourists. Go to Pizano's or Pequods.

    They should just stick with the E then. The Online game chronology should stay away from true Canon.
  10. I love the fact that they've learned into the misfit nature of their show. Oh it isn't perfect. But the general banter and carefree nature of things has set them free and Legends is a vastly improved show from the serious nature of its first season. I loved the back and forth in the first post Crisis episode where Nate keeps commenting on not being invited to the crossover...

    The Crown Season 3 [Spoilers]

    Hmmmm...I'd've thought it was going to be Harry finding a time warp in some Canadian cave and he goes back to try to save MountLannister, but is conflicted when he discovers how history changes if he doesn't let him die...but maybe that is more for season 6 or 7...?

    Star Trek: Picard

    One of the best Sci-Fi movies over all actually. Though I was watching it today and lamenting that the theme of aging and death was based on Kirk turning 50...
  14. Honestly forgot about Half Priced Books...the Brookfield location is not far at all...thanks for the tips on the smaller shops too.
  15. Not saying they are. But also not something you find on the shelves easily either. I'll order from Amazon, but I'd rather buy at smaller book shops. If that makes sense.
