death of a former Star Trek actor
Aron Eisenberg, best known to #StarTrek fans for playing the role of the #Ferengi #Nog in #DeepSpaceNine, as well as the #KazonOgla Kar, in the #STVoyager episode "Initiations", passed away on September 21st, 2019, at the age of 50: https://intl.startrek.com/news/aron-eisenberg-obituary-star-trek
Picard series' 2nd trailer, and ST:TNG episode Descent, Part 2
Heh, and the line I quoted in an earlier discussion at https://mastodon.social/@FiXato/102476382093921562 about Data not having buoyancy was from a review of #STTNG's Descent, Part 2 (https://www.tor.com/2012/12/28/star-trek-the-next-generation-descent-part-ii/), which coincidentally also featured the non-Collective Borg, Hugh, who was led astray by Lore.
Now I'm wondering if the android we see at the end of the new #Picard trailer is Data, Lore or B4?

"They were joined on stage by surprise guests Brent Spiner (Commander Data), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) and Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh). In addition, it was announced that Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker) and Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi) will make appearances in the new series."
Star Trek's LeVar Burton Hopes Geordi Has Had Sex With a Real Woman by the Time Picard Takes Place
Well, Geordie LaForge was an utter creep when it came to women, and one of the future episodes showed him married to a Leah, which I suspect is the holo-version of Leah Brahms, rather than the actual one (who he seemed to blame for not matching his idealised holodeck version), so don't get your hopes up LeVar!

Something I think #TheOrville does better than #StarTrek by the way, is how its crew is a lot more diverse.
I'm not talking about human inclusivity here, but rather showing more diversity in the kinds of species.
Not all crew members are your typical human-like creature with just some simple cosmetics added, but instead you got multi-eyed beings, something that looks like a mix between a worm, an anteater and a xenomorph, and even non-humanoids such as the Gelatin Yaphit.
The #Spoonheads present their best-of album with classics such as:

— Yamok Rocket Sauce
— Rock the Runabout
— Killing me swiftly (with this song)
— Born to be Obedient
— Yakety Yamok
— Vole over Bajor
— Cardassia Dreamin
— Mind playing neck tricks on me
— No Matter What Shape-Shifter

Are those #reptilian #Xindi in one of the story sketches?
I love this episode btw. Not just the story, but also because it shows all the actors without their alien makeup.
What version of #Darts did #JulianBashir and #ChiefOBrien play on #STDS9?
Every time I watch, they seem to aim for the bull's eye (or rather, the *inner* bull's eye), as if that gives the most points.
However, in most professional darts I've seen, the max score in a round would be 180 points from three times treble/triple twenty.
I thought the only time you'd go for the inner bull, would be if you have exactly 50 points left, and thus needs a double 25 to finish?
Wow, #CaptainJaneway got more love than #CaptainPike?
#CaptainArcher getting no love, is no surprise, but I expected Pike to do better than Janeway as well. I guess you don't count when you don't have your own series.
Then again, just 4 votes is hardly significant.
FWIW, Pike would've been my choice here.
