  2. Not a problem for me. I can cheerfully ignore KOTOR just as Disney does and just as Lucasfilm did before Disney. It's a good game but not exactly consistent with either movies or even books. And since the idea that tech stays stagnant for thousands of years is absurd and directly contradicted by more authoritative sources I'm fine with KOTOR being it's own universe. If however you insist on including it since KOTOR was actually more technologically advanced than the Star Wars Trilogy, you pretty much have to assume some kind of catastrophic long night before the refounding of the Republic that caused them to fall to a comparatively primitive level and crawl back up.
  3. You know what? I reject this consensus. Ion cannon were introduced as new game changing technology in the Clone Wars cartoon. Fighters with internal hyperdrives seem to be a new development as well. And hyperspace tracking and navigation is apparently getting better and better.
  4. TROI: I just find it interesting. Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the man who couldn't be pried out of his seat for a vacation for three yearsPICARD: It's Earth. It's home. Do I need another reason?TROI: I don't know. What do you think?PICARD: Your help has been invaluable during my recovery, but, look, I'm better. The injuries are healing.TROI: Those you can see in the mirror.
  5. I actually have a set of game proposals based on Star Trek. Enterprise Done Right Voyager Done Right The Rebel Generation With the first one, I'd eliminate the anachronistic technology. They'd be armed with lasers and "impulse torpedoes" with and without nuclear warheads. They wouldn't have transporters (on the ship that is. I'd have it as a buggy prototype on a research station). They'd get battle damage reports in the form of hull breaches and casualty figures. The focus of the campaign would be visiting each of the human colonies, helping them with their problems and use that to convince them to integrate with the United Earth Federation now that faster warp drive makes that possible. With the second one, I'd make a simple change. They aren't 70 years away from home. More like 7. I'd also call it the Ulysses and have it encounter adaptations of the Odyssey because "subtle" is my middle name. I'd dispense with the Maquis thing. That was an idea that just didn't work. The third one is just TNG interpreted cynically. Earth and by extension the Federation are under the sway of a bureaucratic cabal using genetic engineering, propaganda and intensive psychological monitoring and conditioning to try to create a docile population. In the process the Federation is crumbling under their mismanagement. It would be to TNG as Blake's 7 is to TOS.
  6. So you want an adaptation of the "The Wind Done Gone"?

  8. I'm not as concerned about the anachronism as it just not sounding the way I'd expect Cersei in particular to talk. It would sound more natural to me coming from a more down to Earth character.
  9. I find a really low tomatometer reading actually is a reliable indicator that I won't like it. 25% or less that is.

  11. Batman, The Black Terror, Miss Fury and Spectre beg to differ.
