I like how they never bothered to explain why his character was able to super evolve to transport himself around the galaxy pretty much like the Q, only to wind up working in Starfleet again on some ship in some brief scene in one of the movies.

Worf isn't even moving.

This is one of the reasons I find this show so much less watchable than the Shatner series.

I've seen a lot of Shaw Brothers movies, and they're beautiful decorated and vibrant in their colours and invariably quite obviously shot on sound stages. The most recent one I saw had the final battle on top of a large hill, and it was just some grass mulch thrown on the ground with some shrubs put around it and and endless sky in every direction that the principle characters all had their big action scene (which involved stilts). It was impossible to be watched literally. The unreality of the setting and acting and vibrancy made it a metaphor.

Likewise, the Shatner series. It was vibrant and melodramatic and they seemed to ham up how they would throw themselves all over their sparsely decorated sets. It was a story about how battles between space ships might one day happen, not a story about how they might look. It was stupid and, smartly or accidentally, didn't aim for realism.

Everyone always has an ironic, nonsense reason for liking the TOS as if they got caught liking donkey porn.

I like it because it's damned good TV, and hasn't been matched very often since, and never by another Star Trek series.

I don't need to apologize for its color palette, musical score, or other artifacts of the 1960's common to everything but only apologized for on Star Trek.

Due to the extremely restrictive standards and practices laws of the time, the original Star Trek actually was legally classified as donkey porn.

I actually think TNG does a much better job of feeling timeless than the original did, to the point that I'll watch it and still amazed that its nearly 30 years old at this point. Also, TNG has a significantly higher quantity of Patrick Stewarts than the old show did. It's like the original show wasn't even trying to give us enough Patrick Stewarts.

The orignal series has a sense of wonder, warmth and guileless optimism that the later series lacks. Part of it is probably the character interactions and part of it the spirit of the times, either way I found it enjoyable in a way I never found the later series.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2014-06-01
The lack of Patrick Stewarts in Voyager was very noticeable. They tried to make the actors wear Patrick Stewart masks but too many of them revolted and eventually the show was cancelled as a result.

The best Captain was Archer.

I liked TOS because it challenged cisgender norms within the framework of post-television, feminist, pussy-theoretical slam poetry.

memedumpster - 2014-06-01
Was there even a single Patrick Stewart in the whole of DS9?

Xenocide - 2014-06-01
REAL TALK: Patrick Stewart is in the first episode.

It's actually a pretty great bit because instead of doing the usual special guest star hand-off crap that spinoffs usually go for, we find out that Picard accidentally killed the main character's wife and he hates his guts. So you get the new Star Trek captain telling the old one to go fuck himself.

Guess we need a deshaked TOS bridge to settle the matter.

exy - 2014-06-02
Well, that's a longish version.


EvilHomer - 2014-06-02
Yeah, Picard in DS9 was great. It wasn't really an "accident", either - Picard killed the poor guy's wife on purpose. He was part of the Borg Collective at the time, but still.

Sisko always struck me as an asshole, but at least he wasn't a pompous old schoolmarm like Jean-Luc.

Bort - 2014-06-02
It should be noted that the pilot of DS9 was about Sisko learning to move on without his wife, along with the plot pointy bits about a wormhole and Bajor. And at the end, after Sisko was no longer still stuck at Wolf 359*, Sisko was able to come to terms with Picard -- and they were good enough to do it without being painfully on-the-nose about it.

*: the star around which that big battle with the Borg happened. Wolf 359 is a real star that is only a few light years away from earth. But it's a tiny tiny red dwarf that is so faint you need a hella powerful telescope to see it, which is why it has a sci-fi sounding name rather than an ancient name like "The Wolf's Eye" or "Plato's Butthole".

Apparently it's possible to make Star Trek look even dumber. Bravo!
Riskbreaker - 2014-06-01
Well, nobody is doing Shatner fu here.

gravelstudios - 2014-06-01
There's one episode ( I think it might be the one where several crew members are turned into children) where they're in a shuttlecraft, and whoever was operating the camera forgot to shake it during one scene. It was very similar to this.
RockBolt - 2014-06-01
This one is my favorite
Jet Bin Fever - 2014-06-01
Wait, would you even shake in an explosion in space? I mean, wouldn't you need a medium to create vibrations that would then shake your ship around? Am I being really stupid?
SolRo - 2014-06-01

BorrowedSolution - 2014-06-01
The medium would be the ship and the atmosphere contained within it, if my tenuous grasp of physics is correct. SolRo could probably enlighten us all, but he's happier being contrite and a bit of a dick.

memedumpster - 2014-06-01
It's cocaine, that shaking is a vibration in the cocaine of space.

SolRo - 2014-06-02
BS is right on both cases

An explosion in very close proximity might also have an effect due to gas expansion from the explosion, though the effects would likely be diminised without an atmosphere.

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-06-02
Ahh, so smaller explosions then, but still vibrations from the atmosphere inside. Thanks.
