/strek/ - Hasperat Removal

Swoleness and Star Trek

Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

STD season 3 Anonymous 01/09/2021 (Sat) 17:09:18 ID: bff6fb No.847 [Reply]
YAS, this is Starfleet. What a shit show. 5th showrunner and it's somehow worse than the other seasons.

>>891 Like basically everything else, TV shows have become clickbait. This means that the MOST money is to be made immediately upon release. Look at basically any series and you will see that interest (and therefore viewership, and therefore profit) is highest in the first episode, and then falls off a precipitous cliff after a few more. Maybe if it's a good show it will plateau, but that's not very likely anymore. The thing is, people just have so much choice. In the 80s-90's, you had a few options of TV shows to watch and that was IT. But now you have hundreds, plus anything on subscription services, backlogs of shows on netflix, whatever you want pirated as torrents or cracked subscription services. There is just NO WAY any TV show can maintain an audience after more than a few episodes. So this results in a couple strategies: a subscription service that trickles in content one episode at a time for a "season" of like 5 episodes. Then they wait a year or so to build up hype, repeat. See this with Stranger Things and The Mandalorian. The other model is what I call a "pump and dump". When interest and the audience starts to tail off, immediately and deliberately cut the production quality and writing of what is supposed to be a long-running show, so it gets canceled as quickly as possible. In essence: sabotage your own work so you can move on to the next one rather than dragging it out over years. If you're an /a/ fag, you might recognize this technique as what happened with The Promised Neverland season 2. What this basically means is that media is trending to a situation where they are constantly chasing the audience's immediate dopamine high. Rather than a long satisfying meal consumed over hours, it's a shot of heroin that wears off after a few seconds. Followed by another, and another, and another. The idea that we will EVER get a long-running series that plays out over multiple years (and the associated growth/development and increasing production values and better writing) is laughable. Remind yourself that most Trek series (especially TNG) took a few seasons to shake off the cringe and develop their own unique voice. That'll never happen again. A series that will actually reach a full conclusion before being "canceled" will never happen again. We're not the studios' long-term lovers anymore. We're a whore that is meant to be used once and then left behind. After all, there are always new whores to convince to click once, JUST ONCE, and they make their money back and then some.
>>892 Reasonably good analysis IMO. You might even be correct in general about it. But >"We're a whore that is meant to be used once and then left behind." most definitely has the shoe on the wrong foot. It's not the prostitutes that pay out the cash friend. :^)
>Michael becoming a captain, with the scene being a ripoff of the fucking STO tutorial >tilly still 2x fatter than Ensign Wildman >the Trill troon that scolds the white homosexual male for using the wrong pronouns At least this season boldly went down the shitter (unlike the other seasons and Picard)

>>891 (((they))) dont have to care about financial loses because we will most likely be forced to bail them out when the time comes. Take a look at SVB Bank for a more recent example. SVB was all about (((woke investments))) and those tactics most likely resulted in SVB not having enough liquidity to cover a large sale of bond holdings, which resulted in them not being able to cover $1.8 billion of the sales. Its the same shit with (((hollywood))). They will continue to create propaganda and at some point, we are going to bail out the studios for this jewish trash... unless we do something about

>>929 I'm actually pleasantly surprised, ep 1 was a little preachy but 2 was great, they actually worked out the original concept of the borg into a thing, which they could'nt for tng due to budget reasons. Have not finished 3 yet but so far it's pretty decent, very farpoint which is also the general theme, rehashing tng stuff, but still infinitely more enjoyable then nu-trek

Moral conundrum thread Anonymous 08/17/2019 (Sat) 21:32:44 No.281 [Reply]
What would Jean Luc Picard do?

In this thread we post and discuss moral conundrums that we can encounter while exploring the galaxy.

So you finally have the chance to rid the galaxy of one of it's worst scourges - the Borg. Fool proof concept: hack one guy that infects all the others. Boom - the Borg are no more. Just as you are about to pull the trigger the female doctor - who is only on the ship because her good-for-nothing-husband died under your command and you felt bad about it so you gave her a cushy job in hope she'll never get on your nerves again - starts moralfagging about how genocide is not cool while conveniently forgetting that the Borg did exactly that to tens of thousands of worlds and billions of people.
Was it right to cave in to her bitching and letting the most dangerous and destructive force in the galaxy off the hook or should you have manned up, wiped out the Borg and given that broad a good over the knee spanking til her cheeks glow as red as her dyed hair?

I'd love to giver her a good spanking while Wesley has to watch. (He's not allowed to touch himself ofc)
Go full clockwork orange and force him to watch while giving him huge doses of apomorphine.

I guess the show that the hacks from Midnight's Edge and Doomcuck thought that it didn't exist... is still a thing and it's coming out on CBS All Access. It's Reddit & Morty but with the Starfleet logo.

>>811 But of course, how could it ever not have been about the hot alien babes?
Fuck you, I liked it.
>>805 The problem with this prompt is that it could never be sensible. Even in a pitched battle sequence with the fate of the Galaxy on the line, the non-bridge crew (and I exclude I anyone in charge in Engineering ala Scotty or Geordi, or other "main characters") is going to be doing unimportant things. There's Klingons on the starboard bow, and you want to focus on the dude repairing the broken power conduit in jefferies tube 420, section 69? Okay, sure. And anytime there's not really anything going on, their usual jobs are going to be even more mind-numbing. As it turns out, most people have jobs that are rote and boring and would not make good television content. The only way this can actually function is if you have rare episodes as "filler", focusing on the mundane as a breather in between all the action. But an entire show of "filler" is impossible. Like a novel without a plot. So the only way to solve this dilemma is to add in random wacky shenanigans that pretends to be important, when you already know it CAN'T be important. >>810 What IS the genre? Because I feel the way I view sci-fi is very different from the way a lot of people do. I see it as a method of exploring the human condition using extreme situations that are impossible with our current universe and technology. A bunch of hot-shots blasting around the galaxy having super-amazing space battles is cool, but it doesn't explore anything. It doesn't ask the viewer anything but to sit back, let their eyes glaze over, and shovel popcorn down their throats.
>>895 I'm guessing the conventional plots sf has shifted towards is a reaction to the navel-gazing behemoths of earlier years. Sf is honestly difficult to pull off without becoming a masturbatory exercise for the author. Doesn't really excuse it, but it does seem like a case of trading one set of excesses for the other.
>>899 >Sf is honestly difficult to pull off without becoming a masturbatory exercise for the author. But that's exactly what sci-fi is, almost by definition. The freedom sci-fi gives allows authors to explore things they otherwise aren't able to, or straight up can't, in other genres. It also has hot alien chicks and robots and lasers and stuff.

It was a reasonable okay watch, their MC got the crazy's and had to be replaced (and this happens like every year with characters of various importance). Seasons 1-4 are pretty straight forward if a little rushed towards the end. Entirely worth watching for Bester for being such an irredeemable character, strong performances (better then the arks really but the arcs were solid) and an interesting universe that tries to be science fiction instead of science fantasy that you get with some shows.

>>411 Acting jobs dried out of Ed Wasser, so he started construction company. >>716 The series finale was shot during 4th season and season 4 finale was something they came up with minimal budget and time. Content meant to run until half way thru 5th season was squeezed into second half of 4th season, 5th season is pretty much half season stretched to full season.

As usual, Babylon 5 curse has manifested itself. Latest victim being Mira Furlan, who passed away at 65.
I've heard that they have made an HD version of the show for the streaming platforms. The CGI scenes are less blurry than the DVD versions.
>>877 From what I understand is that they basically re-scanned the live action film footage, ran standard definition FX sequences thru AI filter to upscale and clean it up and then edited everything together.
