They can safely ignore Voyager. And Q flat out told Picard in the finale that the trial never ends.

There is one other problem with bringing Q back. John de Lancie has aged much since his last appearance in Voyager(did he make one in Enterprise). I will be obvious that he is much older. Qs are supposed to be omnipotent. I find it hard to believe they age.

That could be explained easily - he could WANT to look older to match Picard’s age or anything like that.

Possible, I suppose.

I have to say I have a bad feeling about bringing back Picard.

I have a bad feeling about Star Trek in general anymore. Once they started with the Kelvin timeline, they never should have returned to the original. The whole point of creating the Kelvin timeline was to start over and to leave the original universe to rest in peace. But now they have gone back to it. It is bound to confuse fans just getting into Trek. I think the continuity is so messed up and confused, I don’t think it can be fixed. I think I am done with it. Sorry.

Don’t be afraid, if the rumours are correct, the new Picard show will once and forever destroy the original timeline.

What do you mean by that?

As Picard had a love for archeology, I like the Indiana Jones comparison.

Can you really see Picard running around punching nazis and looking for the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant, using a whip to climb things and swing from one thing to another and as a weapon, all while wearing a brown leather jacket and fedora?

You mean this guy?


I mean the cerebal Picard from the tv series. If you ask me, that scene just did not fit the Picard from the show. The movies never got Picard right.

Ah, First Contact. It may be the best of the TNG films, but that’s not saying very much.

They never got TNG right in the films.

Kinda?

Well I can’t.

You do understand we aren’t talking about literally reshooting Indiana Jones but with Picard instead right? Do you know how comparisons work?

I’m just not seeing how you could compare the two, they are completely different.

The Something Political Thread (Was: Random Political Thoughts)

Uh, what? I’ve never called you a terrible person or a bigot. I was just pointing out that you’re commentary isn’t exactly uplifting either. It’s less brazen than mine, sure.

And you’ve done that by citing one comment which I have already apologized for and two comments which I haven’t said for quite awhile.

I know you haven’t called me terrible person or a bigot, but for all I know it is what you think of me for my comments about police shootings.

Oh, and another thing about the cop stuff. Although you haven’t done so in a bit, you have in the past brought up the cop stuff again and again. I would appreciate it if you stopped. It should be clear that I don’t wish to discuss it with you. Bringing up again and again will not make me discus it with you. You want to think I am terrible person and perhaps a bigot for my comments in regards to police shooting, fine.

I really hope that there’s a big recession soon. I think that would fun to watch.

I am really sick and tired of these miserable depressing posts from you.

And you’re such a ray of sunshine, aren’t you? “This is obviously an attack on my Christianity.”

I regret my misunderstanding, I apologized for it. I shall try to be more careful next time. Not sure what else there is to do.

“These football players hate America because they exercise their constitutional rights!”

I don’t think I’ve talked about that for multiple months. I think I haven’t talked about it since oojason temp-banned me twice back in late Sept 2017.

“I don’t know. It might not be the police’s fault that they shot that unarmed kid multiple times in the back.”

I don’t recall defending any cops that shot an unarmed kid in the back. I don’t think I’ve talked about the police shootings in multiple months either.

US Republican Party voters/supporters - your thoughts and views on Trump & the Party

Trident said:

Not really sure if this is worthwhile? But I’m on point here so I’ll make this jab at the topic.

Former quasi Obama supporter here. I mean in his early days before he stepped into the Middle East and let down everyone who mattered. But anyway.

In my community I was one of a few who supported Trump after all the other candidates cratered (I liked Rubio in the early days). I figured that even though he wasn’t lined up with my views? And even though he was obviously a guy with an ego 3 sizes too big? I just couldn’t trust Hillary to do the right thing after all the real evil she and her husband have pulled off in plain sight.

I mean in this case? I just went with the devil I didn’t know as well instead of the one I was actually afraid of.

So do I think he’s doing a good job now?

Oh God.

Do I hope or think he’ll get another term on the throne?

I don’t think the world could handle that. Seriously.

Do I think he’s doing what he set out to do?

I think in his mind he is. I mean he’s obviously not in this for the money. He’s in this to be the guy known as the one who made America Great again. He’s in this so he can have his face on a future coin. So I fully expect him to drive hard until he gets somewhere far into his plans for sure.

What issues would I want to see addressed before the next election?

Man I don’t know anymore. It’s almost gotten to the point that anything a guy asks for just seems to make things worse.

I mean the idea of Muslims getting deep into our country scared me towards wanting to shut down immigration for a while? But I’ve never had anything against the Mexican people just trying to get into a better life. I seriously couldn’t blame them. I seriously liked the idea that the go-getters from that country were coming here just like our ancestors did. I mean I never mixed Mexicans in with Muslims. I never got that cross-eyed. The first group at least share my religion after all. While the 2nd often agree with the idea that gays should be executed. Like they’re stuck in some kind of time warp that passed by the rest of us some 600 years ago.

Well enough for generalizations. Of course I’m over-simplifying. Of course I’m leaving out the guys like my pal Mohammed (known to his close group as Jay). That beautiful ebony god. His mind so full of bright ideas. His manners so calm. His heart so deep. How the hell he served thoughts so straight being hooked on some of the stuff he was taking I’ll never know. But man I loved him.

Sorry. I’m wandering again.

Peace.

um…huh?

I never owned an N64 (or any Nintendo console other than the GameCube for a brief time). We had my mom’s old Atari 2600 until the first PlayStation came out.

But I played GoldenEye a bunch on friends’ systems, and enough Mario Kart to know that this game was far superior:

Come at me.

Ah, the good old Atari 2600. We had one when I a kid. In fact, we still do. It is in a box somewhere with all the cartridges. Haven’t it in years, I doubt it would still work.
