    Freeman: I'm telling you, Jack, if we have to host one more conference call because our holodeck power consumption is causing our dilithium shipment to go over allotment again...
    Ransom: *glances around nervously* Um, yeah, I'll remind the Lower Decks to ease up on their extracurricular activities...
    Freeman: Ugh, don't they have anything else better to do?

    Does anyone without a gaming console even own a DVD/Blu-Ray player anymore?

    I have one, and as streaming services fragment, I suspect I'll be buying mroe DVDs of the things I like rather than subscribing to a new service just for one show and hoping the licensing agreements don't change in six months...

    That said, I just found out Xfinity now has a CBS All Access app, signed up for the $5.99 plan, and started watching Lower Decks. I should be caught up in a few days.

    LDS isn't urgent for my on Blu-ray since it came to Amazon Prime, but I hate watching Prime on the PC due to not being able to turn off X-Ray. The slightest knock of the mouse and I'm getting cast info or fun facts.... I've seen at least a dozen complaints whilst looking up how to turn it off (you can't) of folk being spoilt on surprise appearances because X-Ray put the cast list up...

    I've got the app on my Smart TV, but it's often not logged in and typing passwords on a TV remote is a pain.

    But I'm not getting any more paid streaming services beyond Netflix and Amazon, so stuff like The Mandalorian will need to be Blu-ray for me.

    Okay, that was fun.

    I loved all the little TNG nostalgia touches, like using the same font and sound effects. The mile-a-minute in-jokes might get old eventually, but for 10 episodes I didn't mind.

    Anbo-jytsu!

    Looks like Rutherford got a new implant - good but hopefully this one comes with more character development.

    This video is not available in your country. :garamet:

    That's the third fucking Star Trek trailer that CBS/Paramount has geolocked. Are they bloody stupid?

    How is it that Disney/Marvel just puts their trailers out there for all to see? Perhaps their marketing folks are a bit more savvy about promoting things?

    And studios wonder why people resort to :pirate:

    So I'll renew my Paramount + subscription on August 11? Got it. Picard's not going to premiere until sometime in 2022. I don't blame them for delaying production given Patrick Stewart's advanced age. Hopefully they'll do a sequential run like they did in 2020 and keep the Trek coming. Lower Decks, Discovery, Strange New Worlds and then Picard.

    The international link I put up in the Picard thread has links to similar versions for this and Disco.

    Everybody knows that the Vulcans landed in Bozeman, Montana on April 5, 2063. They didn't make it to Canada until sometime in June. They'l get to the rest of you guys soon enough.
