  • It'll be interesting to see what culture is portrayed, and hopefully more faithfully than was done with Chakotay B)
  • Sorry I missed this earlier... But as I said, when someone is specifically responding to points I make, continually challenging my opinions and perspectives, often with completelly a55-backwards logic and statements, then those definitely are attacks on my point of view... Ego has nothing to do with it; I don't consider my…
  • Oh by choice, I would... :D But when people constantly (intentionally or otherwise) misconstrue what I write, dissect it, and then make arguments as if I've said something completely different to what I've written, then exposition is required to clarify those misconceptions... And if that's all you're getting from my…
  • Sure they want to attract new fans to the franchise, but, I think you'll find there are already a whole lot of g.ay Star Trek fans ;) And I'm pretty sure Jon has previously said on-forum that he's on the AS Spectrum...
  • Isn't g.ay marriage legal in Germany? Damn, I did not know that, and am genuinely sorry to hear it :( Everyone has the right to get married to the person they love, no exceptions...
  • So g.ay people can't vote? Can't own their own homes? Can't get married? Can't have jobs? I don't deny that there's still a long way to go in stamping out prejudice in some quarters, but the situation now, is way better than the situation of say, fifty years ago... And that, is exactly what I was talking about! That I am…
  • I don't think that... At All!! Why are people incapable of reading anything I write, without taking the exact opposite interpretation of what I mean, and go to great lengths to explain?? Is there an issue with my use of English, or the way I express myself?? Am I not sufficiently clear in the expression of my opinions??…
  • This, is what I mean... I don't have to give a 'why' -- it's my opinion -- I shouldn't have to justify why I hold it, least of all, to someone (not you) who's capacity to grasp the opinions of others is tenuous at best... I'm sick of every comment I make being turned into an argument, or an excuse for one... If Sander's…
  • Making a group (any group, be it minority/majority) feel represented, is important on many different levels, from support, to engagement... I can't express that sentiment any more directly or succinctly... But what Fuller has done, is neither of those things... He has 'played the g.ay card' as an advertising campaign…
  • Against an un-armed pacifist civilian population... It's the equivalent of sending mall-cops to stand guard over a hippie's peaceful protest! :D Because Plot, that's why... ;) That's because Tuvok's a badass... ;) Tuvok makes Worf and Tasha both look like amateurs... ;) Oh, and FYI, Picard didn't have a heart condition...…
  • No. Because I am f*cking SICK of you CONSTANTLY misinterpreting what I say -- deliberately or otherwise -- and am sick of biting my tongue about it! If you don't agree with me, fine, don't agree with me, but don't be so damn arrogant as to think that just because you disagree with what I say, means that I am WRONG! YOU are…
  • :D :D :D :D Ha! I f*cking knew it! I said this weeks ago, but oh no, I didn't know what I was talking about... Ha! I called it! :D :D
  • That's a crock, and you know it... If they were truly interested in showing inclusivity and diversity, they would not even mention it prior to release, they would just let it be revealed through the stories upon release... Same as the announcement of making Sulu g.ay prior to the release of Beyond: It's done For…
  • Do you go out of your way to deliberately find a way to misinterpret what I say? Or are you genuinely that incapable of understanding others? Let me put it in a way you might understand: If the writers of a show wanted to write about a character who happened to be an aspie Doing A job which had nothing whatsoever to do…
  • Key-word being 'should'... The fact that Starfleet Intelligence canonically tasks mainline officers with fieldword, suggests that Starfleet Security can't adequately do the job (but that's not surprizing, there's a big difference between a bouncer/bodyguard, and a Special Ops-trained individual...)
  • I like that idea... B) The ground-based officers of my crew all wear the field uniforms, but I like the idea of a hazard team as well... B) Only problem, is Cara's current kill squad can pretty much already handle anything, so that would mean a second team... :D Hmmm... B)
  • That's an interesting notion, but one that makes absolute sense due to a lack of Preserver presence... Nice idea B)
  • Gamma Quadrant: Seeing what and who else is in the GQ would be interesting B) And it doesn't have to be against the Dominion, either, asThe Character already has good relations with The Founder, and a Jem'Hadar minder, so a different foe like the Hur'q could be explored B)
  • I was going to do that, but then I went and spent the Zen on a TOS Connie for T'Karra (her Trexels origin is now fully transposed (well, except for the characters I'd need to pay for the TOS Uniforms for...) and two extra ship slots, for Cara (every good admiral needs a decent fleet to work with...) I'm likely going to put…
  • I just think it's sad that they need to use something like this to try and generate interest... :( Things like this do nothing to increase tolerance, and do nothing more than highlight someone for no reason other than their sexuality, as if there's nothing else about them worth mentioning... That kind of boxed-in thinking…
  • There was the Hazard Team in Voyager Elite Force... Cryptic need to send some emails so Alex Munro can make a return, maybe even as head of the Advanced Tactical Training, an area where people could go and buff up their ground skills and equipment B) What we see in-game as Starfleet Intelligence, comes in the form of Cmdrs…
  • Just spend the money... The time it's going to take you to grind 325500 dilithium, at a few hundred dilithium per mission, it's not worth the effort it will take, and the time away from playing the storyline missions... Seriously, just save yourself the time, and use cash-money... If you haven't got that spare, wait until…
  • Well given that, until Cryptic made up the RR, RSE was all there was, and that's what people would have related to (fromseeingitineverycanoninstanceofRomulans) LOL @ you for not getting that... :D :D :D :D
  • So thanks to an alt, I pulled one of my resurrection acts on T'Vrell (still a science officer, but I didn't have enough ec to find any decent High End Clay on the exchange, but what was available to dil buy as a new BOFF was acceptable in terms of capabilities) I made minimal tweaks to the outfit parameters, because I…
  • You're the one denying what Geko said, not I... Again, cliched, not hammy... And no head-canon involved at all, Denise Crosby has observably working on the fringes of the Trek franchise with docu-films and other works, since she quit her role of Tasha Yar, due to dissatisfaction with the development of the character... She…
  • Well, that's a whole lot of hyperbole and emotive tosh... No one is saying that Geko is 'a perfect god', but nice attempt at combining reductio ad absurdum with a strawman to avoid having to accept the point, beyond merely acknowledging it; that Geko knows way more about things than you, or any of us do. If Geko says…
