Re: "Did STAR WARS The Rise Of Skywalker Steal From Avengers Endgame?"

Not really. It's kind of a trope to say 'I am all the (insert something)'.

It's also common to say 'I am (insert something)'.

This is just a really big reach honestly. Probably just created to get views and therefore money.

I think so too.

Also apparently how much they value their policitics over science.

Re: Truth OR Myth? Starfleet Starships- The Cheyenne Class

I have to admit out of the kit ashes, I like this one the most just due to it being far less obvious of an kitbash. I like the New Orleans but you look at it the more you can see it was made from two different size models. The Cheyenne to me seems like a nice small sized (relative to a Ambassador o...

Re: Truth OR Myth? Klingon Starships- The Negh'Var Class

Look up Venom Geek Media 98. He has other videos doing the same type of history of the other classes within the Klingon Empire. He also does it for the Romulans. He also created his own fanfic storyline for the Pre-TNG Cardassian Border War with the Federation too. It's not bad if you can get past f...

Re: Truth OR Myth? Shady Starfleet

Always upstanding? Did they MISS The undiscovered Country?! I don't understand why there's a Starfleet Purity Test running among some of the fandom but, that is a lousy reason to hate Star Trek, old or new. Maybe a leftover from the Roddenberry and TNG days. Humans and the Federation don't do those...

Just saw the commercial for this. Looks interesting even if I have no idea about it.

Re: Back Trek- Behind The Scenes- Q Who

It's my head canon. It's my only way of explaining the Borg being in the Neutral Zone without doing the Borg thing to other powers. They were there to learn about the local powers and wyether it was worthwhile to assimilate them at that point. The Super Spin Warp Drive E-D had to make them very curi...

Re: Design flaws - Suspension of disbelief

Well it's not like TOS was a science heavy show. It was a science fiction show, using fictional science as a backdrop for episodes. It was also a product of its time. Special effects were still crude even by 80's standards and budget reasons made certain things like props or alien worlds look fake ...

Re: Back Trek- Behind The Scenes- Q Who

I liked how they did the reverse-melting to make the regeneration. Practical effects For the episode itself, it was nicely terrifying. As far as the Borg going to Earth, it could have been the Borg meeting the Enterprise-D deep in the galaxy, and wondering how the Ent-D got there. Since the stuff t...

Re: More Giant Orange Baby Ridiculousness

I imagine if Trump does manage to win a second term, it will be cut short due to deteriorating health--mental as much as physical. His eating habits and general disposition can be enough to lead to a heart attack. That is, if he doesn't manage to catch virus first. I kinda thought this during his c...

Re: White Squadron beginnings

We have no idea the history of the squadron. What vehicles it uses. Who is the leader. Would it be based after or before the Battle of Yavin. How it was formed. Etc. Do they fly X Wings? A Wings? B Wings? E Wings? Y Wings. Or maybe something older? Or something newer? Maybe they fly prototype fighte...

Re: Chadwick Boseman, 'Black Panther' Actor, Dies of Cancer at 43

So fucking young. I thought the man was an up and coming actor too.

MCU wise, I wonder who they will bring in to replace him.
