Not sure what you mean by this actually. . .

Archer being the worst captain, while being on track to becoming a founder of the Federation etc. was what made me bail on the show for a long time.

I really came to loathe Archer, and writing T’Pol as having respect for him really damaged her character over time.

Or just tag one of the artists who posts on Mastodon. They’ll get the notification and can decide whether they want to respond here or not.

Vfx head Brian Tatosky did that when I that on another post.

Unfortunately, I can’t recall which of the animators have seen posting on Mastodon.

Clearly, the ability to be outside in appropriate clothing for activities isn’t being mandated. This is where a temperate climate enables ridiculous practices to persist.

All I can think about when I see this image is how in Ontario, the responsible provincial ministry requires all schools and ‘day nurseries’ (read day and after school care) to put the kids out in the yards twice a day unless the weather conditions are severe (Less than -20 or more than +30 Celsius.).

Parents are responsible to send their kids with suitable clothing for the cold. One rarely sees little girls in skirts in schools unless they are wearing tunic dresses over leggings.

In an earlier era, pre 1970s, when skirts were mandatory for girls, that meant switching to pants or snow pants from the skirts 3 times a day to go outside in winter (two breaks and leaving end of day).

SkyShowtime seems to be a pilot version of this in Eastern Europe and the Netherlands. Not that it seems to be doing all that well. However, I’m not sure what Peacock offers that’s original content so it’s questionable what a bundle would add.

In any event, this seems a daft thing to do when they’re trying to sell the firm. One of the biggest problems Paramount+ has had is that it doesn’t stick with a strategy and has been so tangled up in previous licensing or partnership deals that it can’t pursue its plans in any reasonable or systematic way. Tying the hands of a new owner with a poison pill deal with Comcast doesn’t seem to benefit anyone.

Emily Coutts (Detmer) and Oyin Oladego (Owo) are never listed with the main cast characters. They and others like Patrick Kwok-Choon (Gen Rhys) are credited in the ‘also starring’ list in the post credits not in the main titles.

No reason not to believe Emily won’t be back. Oyin was in production as the lead in an independent feature last year so there may have been a scheduling issue as there was for Ronnie Rowe Jr (Bryce) when he was in production for his lead role in BET+ Series ‘The Porter’ during production of Discovery season 4.

Most of these Canadian actors filling in the bridge crew work on other Canadian projects which seem to be more crucial for advancing their careers even if working on Discovery was a regular income.

Uhm, I don’t need the Romulan Supernova to be tied up with a bow.

But I also appreciate that writers like to be able to be the ones to bring closure to their own stories. Alex Kurtzman was the cowriter of Star Trek (2009). I can see how he would like to be the one to lay down the incontrovertible canon that ties the loose ends that the Kelvin movies and Picard have left us with. And he’s co Showrunner of Discovery so it was his vehicle to do it with.

So, I would be cool if this resolves some things and helps us to understand better the butterfly effect that destroyed a civilization, split the resilient Prime time and perhaps even give us some deeper hints on what caused the Mirror Universe to split off.

I’ve tried including tags for Mastodon user accounts here previously, but was never sure if the users were getting notifications. Nice that Brian Tatosky confirmed it and that he was able to reply directly.

Brilliant thank you!

I remember seeing this. One wonders why this hasn’t been included in the BlueRays or included with the DS9 library on Paramount+.

If you’re on Mastodon, I’d recommend sharing it with the current vfx head Brian Tatosky (@virtualbri).

The crowdfunding stage ended a few months ago, but I don’t see how to order copies once it’s published.

Anyone figure that out?

I thought these were a pair of truly thought-provoking episodes.

I thought a lot about the complicit officers of the Equinox who were transferred to be lower deckers on Voyager, with restricted access to ships systems.

I’d really hoped there would be an episode that followed up on some of them. Some of them had experience and expertise that might have been valuable in some future situations. Instead they were effectively house-arrest passengers for the rest of the voyage in contrast to the Maquis officers. It was another opportunity to have some continuity that seemed to have been offside in the final seasons.

I love TAS. It was MOD.

It embraced the psychedelic colour palette of the early 70s. It also was determined to use the medium of animation to tell stories in a way that TOS couldn’t.

It’s interesting that Doug somewhat confirms that Starfleet Academy will be set in the 32nd century.

StillPaisleyCat,
@StillPaisleyCat@startrek.website avatar

I totally agree.

However, the number of posts I see elsewhere wondering if it will take place in the already crowded late 24th or early 25th century is surprising. So, there’s value add to Doug Adams affirming that.

The original story definitely makes it clear that Decker was a replicant in the final scene when his boss leaves the marker after letting him escape.

It’s subtle, but the literary twist is there for those tracking the implications. The movie adaptation shouldn’t have changed that, and if anything provides a bit more evident foreshadowing.

Love the work on the shell. It really raises it to another level.

'Ivory Tower', likely aka 'Starfleet Academy' preproduction rumoured to start in March (startrek.website)

The Directors Guild of Canada (Ontario) ‘Hot List’ compilation of Ontario-based production information has been updated with a new CBS Studios show ‘Ivory Tower’ to begin Accounting & Art Department preproduction in March.

I’m expecting some thriller aspects, not just the comedy that having Tawney Newsome joining the writers room might suggest.

This show was in development hell for quite a while, but it seems like they finally got a viable concept after the backdoor pilot episode in Discovery season three fell flat, and a new set of creators took over.

Gaia Violo (Co-EP), who is credited with writing the pilot that finally got greenlit, was the cocreator and a senior writer on Absentia. Also, Co-Showrunner Noga Landau was a senior writer on The Magicians when Henry Alonso Myers was showrunner. Landau transitioned Nancy Drew to a much more suspenseful (and successful) version when she took over running the show in season two.

Subspace, Real Space, Warp Bubbles and a proposal as to how *Star Trek* Warp Drive might work

In this post I’ll be proposing a model to understanding how Star Trek warp drive works. In doing so, I’ll be attempting to reconcile the way the TNG Technical Manual describes warp drive with the idea that warp drive somehow takes advantages of shortcuts through real space by warping space around the craft, yet still...

StillPaisleyCat,

There are any number of shuttles lacking warp drive capability that have impulse drives. It seems clear that they need not be interlinked systems. Also, impulse drives still function when a warp core has been jettisoned.

I’m going to drop in again to say that Albucierre’s particular solution in his doctoral thesis was a mathematical closed form corner solution for tractability.

We shouldn’t take the features of this limited corner case as characteristic of the drive approach. Instead, we need to understand that the point of his thesis was to demonstrate cleanly that this particular solution was viable to get around the FTL problem in general relativity.

The thing is that the inertia being zero is implied one of the assumptions of the corner solution. That is, for tractability, Albucierre assumed that the ship would have no initial velocity that it would take into the warp bubble with it.

It would be mathematically messier and would require a computational approach to relax this assumption and allow the ship to have positive initial velocity, but it’s exactly what some of the folks trying to extend the model and reduce the exotic matter requirement have explored.

All to say that the elaboration of Albucierre’s approach seems likely to take it exactly in the direction of some of the distinctions the OP has noticed.

Th most significant difference that remains is that ships at warp are able observe and to receive information from outside their bubble while this seems inconsistent with a bubble in Alcubierre’s model.

Industrial replicators for engineering components. Would seem basic for any long range explorer class ship.

In Prodigy, the ship has a dedicated vehicle replicator that can make all terrain vehicles and shuttles.
