speaking of creatures, my roommate pointed out that there was a creature called a Tribble in the episode... didn't know what it was so, i googled it and realized that's were Nubbins (Sanctuary) come from.

i ask because Captain Lorca seems to want to use that large creature for something... would he be able to transport it onto a Klingon ship?


If they follow Star Trek science, they should be able to. As long as the shields are down, you can beam shit anywhere you want in general depending on distance.

As for how it works, basically you get taken apart down to the molecule, bundled in to what they call a "matter stream" which is some sort of energy beam, and reassembled on the other side.

ahhh.

that seems like a crazy engineering flaw. Unless it's a power issue, why would you ever lower shields with another ship in your vicinity? An enemy ship could just beam some biological weapon aboard and wipe out an entire crew w/o firing a shot.

has that ever come up?

Yeah, many a story have been cursed by the "we can't beam our away team out without lowering our shields" conundrum.

There are the usual "wait for a gap in their harmonics" bollocks, but those are rare.

Ships in Star Trek, generally the Klingons, will weaken a ship until its shield fail, then beam over boarding parties. This creature in STD, I dunno what they plan to do with that.

ya know what, didn't even realize this show's abbreviation was STD until you just used it. Reminds me of when i used to watch The Vampire Diaries and people would call it "VD".

that's unfortunate.

They had to know. It's not like Star Trek abbreviating its show titles is a new thing.

Honestly I can see why they're asking people to subscribe to watch this. The effects really are movie level.

It's on Netflix for me as well. It's Netflix for everyone except the States.

Tbh this kind of shit does worry me though, with Disney starting their own streaming service and taking all their stuff off Netflix. I doubt that's all gonna stay tied to the US only.

So for those of us who aren't millionaires, what other option will be left except illegal downloads (which I try to avoid).

is the production budget for this show so expensive that they needed to put it behind a paywall?

i already have Netflix and Amazon Prime, and Apple Music... i'm not paying for ANOTHER service, especially a service that only has one thing worth watching.

Around $8.5 million per episode, apparently.

Would this show be good to someone who likes sci-fi, but hasn't really seen any of the original Star Trek?

Yeah, should be fine. Basic structure is the same (Starfleet, Vulcans, Klingons, etc) but new characters and a new plot.

Tachyon poisoning. Time duplicate takes over. No one ever knew, no one to mourn. Saddest thing I've ever seen on Trek outside of Bashire unwittingly helping Wynn assassinate her political rival.


Oh and a Pah Wraith possesses his wife at one point, because the universe itself hates Miles O'Brien.

Speaking of Bashir, if some weird mishap occurred with Bashir and Keiko and Miles wifes spirit was killed, but then the spirit of Doctor Bashir somehow ends up in her body? I feel like both Miles and Bashir would be A-Okay with that arrangement.

It's cable companies not learning from their old mistakes. The entire point of a streaming service is to bundle shit together, not take it apart.

That is really disturbing... Though Keiko could be really ****ing annoying at times.
