Just watched an excellent video #TomScott did for #Numberphile about 5 years ago, on #numbers in #language: https://youtu.be/l4bmZ1gRqCc ("58 and other confusing numbers")
Really interesting to see it from a #linguistics POV, and I never realised #base10 was far from the only commonly used base system.
So, once again #RickBerman was the reason we couldn't have good #StarTrek things, being 'allergic' to what made #DS9 so good...
One of #STVoyager's issues imho was that it wasn't as serialised, and most importantly that things that happened didn't have as much of a lasting effect. Damage almost always was reverted the next episode, shuttles seemed to appear out of nowhere, and photon torpedoes also seemed to be available in limitless supply.
#YearOfHell as a season instead of twoparter? Yes, pls
> «[W]e wanted “Year of Hell” to last the entire season. We wanted to see Voyager get its ass kicked every episode and through that season was going to be marbled the story of Annorax and the time ship that was changing things. So, we would go back to it every once in a while to remind the audience that is the larger story. But [it was rejected] because Deep Space Nine made Rick Berman allergic to serialized storytelling, violently so.»
That was a bit of a #RealityCheck moment.
I was just watching #SteveShives' "Is Starfleet Actually The Bad Guy" episode of #TrekActually as he started talking about the #StarTrek #TheNextGeneration episode "Journey's End", while the update notification/ad for #Terraria's latest expansion/update pops up, which is also titled #JourneysEnd o_O
«Star Trek: Deep Space Nine guest star Frank Langella played Skeletor in the film whereas Star Trek: Voyager star Robert Duncan McNeill played the role of Kevin Corrigan, and Meg Foster of Evil-Lyn.»
Remember the #skull creature from #Worf's #calisthenics #holodeck programme?
«According to the script for "The Way of the Warrior", this was a "hulking ogre-like monster from #Klingon mythology."
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia[…], the mask used was that "of the character #Skeletor from the movie Masters of the Universe." Star Trek makeup designer Michael Westmore also did makeup work for that film.»
Star Trek, fictional death, TNG + Picard spoilers
#DeannaTroi and her family have bad luck when it comes to close family members...
First her sister #Kestra drowns at a very young age.
Next, her father dies suddenly (according to a novel due to #Romulan sabotage).
Then an alien entity impregnates her, resulting in #IanTroy, who shortly after gave up his human life to save the crew.
Finally she gives birth to #Thaddeus who dies to a disease that couldn't be treated due to Synthetics ban.
"Transporter chief: keep a permanent lock on the away team and beam them up the moment they are in trouble."
"We've lost the lock; there's too much interference".
Definitely enjoying #Ayreon's new #IntoTheElectricCastle (& #OtherTales) #live album with narration by #JohnDeLancie (that apparently came into the #Dutch charts on number 1!): https://open.spotify.com/album/4e5rWsZyAZUpVlInmxduFP
