MRW I finish the entirety of TNG for the first time

You were always welcome.

I remember when this first aired. It really felt like the end of an era. Sure DS9 was on, and VOY and Generations were on the horizon, but it really felt like I grew up with this crew

"So, five-card stud, nothing wild... and the sky's the limit."

I was 12 when they were hyping the Next Generation's 2 hour premier. I went out and bought my own blank VHS tapes. Set the timer to record because the family was gonna watch something else. I think I watched it once every day until the next episode. It was the biggest thing for me. Bigger than those rare songs I would record off the radio.

I remember reading an article saying it wouldn’t be the same. Unlike TNG, DS9 and VOY wasn’t shot on 35mm.

Godz I cant wait for a remastered HD set.

Alternatively, show them any of the Dominion battle episodes, the year of hell, Sarek, that one ep where picard gets gaslighted and chugs an egg, or Darmok.

No chance of that happening. TNG has a hard time of it and reportedly didn’t sell anywhere near as much as they were expecting.

DS9 maybe a fan favorite but the average person (or the kind of people who are fringe watchers of Trek) watched TNG the most. So if the most popular series can’t turn a profit and DS9 would be even more expensive, there’s no realistic chance of it happening.

MRW someone says they are heading to Walmart

Could you imagine if First Contact with the Vulcans had happened at a Walmart?

When you have autism but your deadpans are damn funny

Oh man...as a new father, I don't think I can ever watch this episode again. Someone always starts cutting some onions right before the end of the episode....It's the damnedest thing...

It’s okay to cry buddy. That’s the mark of healthy masculinity.

Yepppp. Never can make people laugh quite as hard as when I'm dead fucking serious about whatever I'm saying.

me: you have to get up early, don't start the next episode. also me:

I always hated the plasma rifle from fallout more.

man those really were the worst looking sci fi rifles ever

I like the shape, but yeah the cheap plastic and paint is terrible.

I’ve been out of commission with a broken ankle for weeks. I’ve done a DS9 rewatch and am now on season 7 of VOY. At around 5am, while I’m still awake in bed watching, debating whether I should try to sleep, I’ll think of this post.

Never waste an opportunity to remind worf of his dishonor

4/10 costume, eyes need more bulge.

Watched this episode (first time I’ve watched one since the mid/late-nineties) because Mark Hamill was the guest...and ironically, the hardest I laughed was during something “Star Trek”-related

(Zorak does showcase his expertise regarding both franchises in the episode, though, when he destroys Moltar in a debate over who the “true Lord Vader” is (picking Prowse, with Moltar going with James Earl Jones).......I’m not saying one is better than the other, but Zorak put forward a much better argument....stupid Space Ghost knows nothing about either (he introduces Hamill as “Duke Fartnocker”), so he randomly brings up “Ghostbusters.”)

MRW it's my cake day

Mmm, those delicious cellular peptides.

... with mint frosting.

Also, please get that damn ringing...

I would thought this was going to be at Troi and her mom post, but this works just as well, if not better

I was at a thrift store today and saw a 1st gen iPod

Battery was done, it was $5. So I got it to try this: https://imgur.com/a/7JPB6

Honestly can't beat that wheel interface. Being able to flip through songs, pause etc while it was in your pocket rocked.

Now I listen on my phone because its got Spotify, but it's so annoying I need to really look at it to switch songs.

At first I was like "why would she have this tricorder from TOS era" and then I quickly realized that this is Dax speaking who obviously wasn't Jadzia back then. Clever little line.

Then DS9..

No, no, you do TOS, TNG, then DS9, then VOY. But I suppose there's room here for all of us.

You know it.

True, can't go jumping around all willy-nilly between series.
