    It doesn't seem to match the animation style of LD's, but hard to tell in that screen capture.

    STO is getting the Lower Decks uniforms, T88 tricorders, Shax's phaser rifle, and Parliament class (like the Vancouver) ships.

    The ep was mostly a miss for me, but the underlying messages tied it together.

    Loved it :diacanu: it's not an exaggeration at all to say Spirk shippers kept the fandom on life support throughout the 70s until Star Wars made sci-fi profitable again, and I loathe how those fans have been all but erased from Trek's fannish history. The "Trekkies" documentary didn't even discuss it at all. But I'm glad it brought it up and newer creators embrace slash rather than run in terror from it.

    On a side tangent, I think I could be into Mariner and Boimler but only if she pegs him. :diacanu:

    I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    My problem was while I like the concept behind the Dooplers, the energy requirements for such dooplication makes the concept falter (even Tribbles could run into this problem).

    And the chase through the mall and into the aviary... yeah.

    But, Freeman beaming the Doopler into the party was funny.

    I feel like the chase scene was paying homage to the Nemesis Argo chase. Great animation on it FWIW, but I would rather forget it exists, TBH.

    I did like the ending. Had TNG poker game feels.

    Sure they can. I'm not into slash fiction and definitely not Kirk/Spock. But, I'm not taking offense if someone is or is amused by the easter egg.

    Notice you're more upset when it's male-male?

    When it's female-female it's just a typical Baba post, and gets ignored.

    Also, straight women were the biggest writers/audience of Kirk/Spock slash.

    Why can't the ladies have their porn if Baba can?
    Hmm?
    Hmm?
    Yeah.
    Stop being so selfish.

    "upset" :offended", you two are dramatic and constantly presuming people's emotional state.

    Ah yes, because male friendship is absolutely no where in our media and isn't the cornerstone of most movies and TV shows ever :borg:

    I don't care Roddenberry came back to life and said it himself, Kirk and Spock are not gay and neither is Sulu. It was completely stupid when they did it in Beyond.

    Who or what didn't Kirk try to get it on with? it's the future. everybody is pan. deal with it.
    although if we're going to use the "kirk + spock" on a bar as evidence, then we're going to also have to apply the same logic to Boim-Iner carving their names beside the other pairing and accept that they're going to not only knock boots at some point, but also embrace that same emotional bonds as K/S.
