    Section 31 series

    Also, if they DO make another animated series after "Lower Decks".... well, here's what I hope they do. Make it a Dominion War side-story, and have three sub-plots. Sub-plot 1 focuses on a Starfleet Fighter Squadron. Sub-plot 2, on Klingon ground troops, maybe a tank battalion or something. And Sub-plot 3 will center on a Romulan black ops team. Eventually, the three subplots converge at the final battle of the war, the Battle of Cardassia.

    Section 31 series

    Eventually, we'll probably see the same things we saw with the TNG era - there will still be those who bitch and moan, while the new stuff is gradually accepted. I just hope "Lower Decks" doesn't include any 4th-wall breaking. Because the backlash against that would be enormous. But, since the head writer of Lower Decks is a huge Trekkie himself (his cat is named Riker)... we probably won't have to worry about that.

    Section 31 series

    I agree. This could be a golden age. That is if the haters don't ruin it for everyone.

    Section 31 series

    So, between this, the upcoming Picard series, and the animated comedy "Lower Decks", it looks like we've entered a new Era of Trek.

    Looks like we're finally going to be getting a Section 31 series. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/herocomplex/la-et-hc-star-trek-michelle-yeoh-20190114-story.html

    Discovery's Klingon appearance

    I guess. Though there WAS that issue with the D7....

    Discovery's Klingon appearance

    I personally don't think this has anything to do with fan complaints. They were quite plain that this was what they had planned. The bitching and moaning "fans" were just being impatient.

    Discovery's Klingon appearance

    Okay, they've finally explained at least part of the discrepancy - namely, the hairlessness. Apparently, Klingons in this era shave their heads before marching off to war. And since we see Klingons WITH hair in the Season 2 trailer (along with a bunch of other stuff that shows that they at least listened to fan complaints)... I can kinda accept this.

    "Black Smoke Over Blue Water"

    Henry was still chuckling a little, resuming his patrol of the deck, keeping an ear out for outboards or anything else other than the sounds of waves slapping the side of the ship, his G36K hanging from around his neck by the sling, stock folded, hand loose on the grip, finger out of the trigger guard. "I miss guarding Nukes." he said to Murtada, sure that he was still within ear shot. "Walk the fence, scare the local tenagers having a kegger away, chase off some old hippies wanting to spray paint 40 year old slogans on the silo door."

    Trek Wars: Battlefront

    Bump. I just put together a fifth faction for this - the Romulans.

  12. Are you asking if starships can make their deflector shields overlap with those of other starships?
  13. We saw USS Enterpise D extend it shield around Romulus scout ship in The defector

    Discovery's Klingon appearance

    Oh, and there's some canon stuff to support this theory, too. First, take a look at a "normal" Klingon - specifically, the Klingon Ambassador in the 2280's/2290's: Now, here's a "Discovery" Klingon - specifically, T'Kumva: Now, here's the Klingon captain from "Into Darkness": If you notice, the Klingon captain's features are somewhere between the other two, suggesting that he might be a hybrid of the two different Klingon subspecies. And while "Into Darkness" DOES take place in the Kelvin universe, as opposed to the Prime, the Klingon captain's age would suggest that he was born BEFORE the two realities diverged.
  15. Dennis burst out laughing as the spray from the whale's blowhole soaked the unfortunate guard. A bit dickish, perhaps, but he knew the man would walk away from this incident otherwise unharmed. It was at moments like these, that he was glad that the security cameras' footage was stored and accessible on the bridge's main computer. He'd have something to send in to AFV if this mission went smoothly. Still chuckling, he adopted a faux-Scottish accent and said in a voice that was nearly a shout: "Admiral! There be whales here!". The man beside him turned to face him, and raised an eyebrow. "It's from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home." Dennis replied. "Been one of my favorite movies since I was a kid."
  16. Alright, so a lot of us know that the Klingon designs in Star Trek: Discovery haven't exactly been well-liked. Ah screw it, most of the fandom despises the DSC Klingon look. Well apparently, one of the producers has offered an explanation which mitigates this somewhat. According to him, the Klingons we see are the descendants of ones who left Qo'noS a long time ago, and who began adapting to the environments of the new planets they settled on, in order to better survive conditions there. And one such trait that was evolved was the heat-sensitive pits, like snakes have. And baldness as well. If I had to guess, I'd say that these traits were originally mutations in the Klingon back-up synaptic system (yes, TNG revealed that Klingons have a back-up synaptic system). So apparently, Discovery Klingons are the equivalent of Abhumans from 40K.

    ...what the fuck happened here?

    Yeah what the title says.

    "Black Smoke Over Blue Water"

    Jake had just about convinced himself he was letting himself get spooked and was hearing things when he heard a splash followed by the pungent stream of Arabic. Initially alert reaching for his own weapon at the wound. Unable not to snicker to himself a few moments later as the reasoning behind it crackled over his radio. Pausing as he walked this portion of the deck listening to Henry response. Dropping into a slightly more relaxed stance through he was more than experienced enough to know how quickly such things could change. "Whale, Night-6? Sure it wasn't some mermaid blowing "Ahab" a sloppy, wet kiss goodbye?" He couldn't resist teasing over the radio, knowing he was going to regret this later. Panning to look back out across the sea. The pea-soup fog obscuring everything but the nose in front of his face. Easily able to hide rafts filled with murderous pirates as well as Arab soaking whales. Despite his cavalier attitude he was no longer as confident this was going to be as easy an assignment as he'd thought back on dry land.

    "Black Smoke Over Blue Water"

    Lucius had just reached his position on the port side of the Green Whale, about three quarters of the way up to the bow. The fog lazily billowed by, turning every light source on the ship into a big ball of diffused illumination. "Cain't see anything in this murk," he muttered. Suddenly, amid the rhythmic splashing of the ship's bow wave, he heard a loud "PWASH" somewhere aft. He turned towards the stern, but couldn't see a thing. Then he heard yelling in Arabic. "Izzat Murtada?" He unslung his M4 from his shoulder, and powered up the thermal sight. "Come on," he said, impatiently tapping on the ATN ThOR HD 640 as it came online. He looked through it, and saw Murtada and Henry a few hundred feet aft, just as the radio crackled with an explanation. "Ahab? Hah, whales," he chuckled. He briefly panned his weapon over the side of the ship, but the sights couldn't pick up anything in the sea and fog. He decided to resling the M4 over his shoulder, but left the thermal sight on. "Just in case."

    Altamid Drones vs. Super Battle Droids

    Assuming it's just the robots and no one directly giving them orders/tactics and that they're using 'standard' weapons (just their arm cannons). Think I'd give the open plane battle to the B2s, just a bunch of heavily armored and armed robots marching forward in unison and blasting away. The close quarters battle I would give to the Altamid drones, they seem better suited to small squad/ambush tactics while the B2s are pretty much 'go forward, kill' if left on their own.

    Altamid Drones vs. Super Battle Droids

    Like this for the both of them. And this.
  22. Alright, here's something I don't think we've done before. Discuss the value of various war robots. So, let's take a thousand of the Altamid Drones from Star Trek Beyond, and pit them against a thousand of the CIS' Super Battle Droids. Scenario 1: A battle in an open plane. Scenario 2: A battle set in a much more confined area. In this case, brewery that was used for Star Trek XI's engine room scene. How do these battles play out?

    "Black Smoke Over Blue Water"

    Henry would duck out of the way of the spray, a bit surprised that the spray reached that far up the ship, He was snickering and barely holding back laughter when he saw Murtada, He'd key up his radio, still laughing sporadically. "This is Night-6." interrupted by laughter, managing to get it down to a snicker, "Night-3 you might wanna lock up all the harpoons on board. We might have an Ahab situation. Night-6 out." He'd walk up to Murtada and clap him on the shoulder, "That's gotta be good luck, like getting shit on by a seagull."
  24. Alright, a sci-fi video game match-up, with two rounds. The first is a team-based ground-battle, set in some abandoned brewery. On one side, from the StarCraft universe, we have some of the lead members of Raynor's Raiders. We have: Jim Raynor, Tychus Findlay, Egon Stetmann, Gabriel Tosh, Rory Swann, and Zeratul. On the other side, we have the members of Starfox Team: Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Slippy Toad, Peppy Hare, R.O.B. 64, and Krystal. Whichever team takes out the other first, wins. For the second round, we have a space battle. A one-on-one duel between the Hyperion and the Great Fox. Whichever ship can at least disable the other wins. How do these matches go?

    "Black Smoke Over Blue Water"

    (For those on the deck that fail the site and hearing roll,I’m going to coin toss to see which side will well you see. Heads for Port, tails for starboard…..and I got heads. For Henry past his hearing test, so he is fortunate then the NPC that is patrolling on the same side.) Henry, you hear what sounds like a blowhole exhaling from a whale.You have enough time time to dodge the spray, but Murtada isn’t so lucky as he drenched in sea water. He jumps and yells in Arabic, catching the attention of the other guard on deck. “This is Night-three, we heard someone yelling on Portside.” said Andreia over the radio. “Are you alright?” After wiping the water from his face Murtada, before replying. “This is Night-five. Im fine, just a little friend from the sea gave me a splash of water to wake me up. Problem is I’m all reddy awake.” (For Denis site roll) When the fog rolled in ,Hannu switched the cameras to heat vision. You what looks like a pair of whales swimming close the Port side of the ship. Before you or Hannu can radio the rest of the team, one of the whales exhale and wets one the gourds in the proses. (That was just bit of humor and a bit of test with the dye. I hope that didn’t bothered you that much)
